Tough-as-nails Jessie is headstrong and has a fighting spirit that allows her to run a ranch by herself one minute and integrate with a renegade Cheyenne Indian band the next. Chase is the no-nonsense gambler whose devotion to his stepmother leads him into constant clashes with her daughter and ward, Jessie.
There's a lot of fun stuff in this book. First, the Indian scenes are a delight and include two fascinating characters: Jessie's closest friend White Thunder and the Sioux warrior Little Hawk. Jessie's mysterious illness is also engaging - how often do you see the heroine of a romance get obnoxiously sick all over the place? And Chase's little run-in with a robber brings to life a conflict over the ownership of Jessie's ranch. It is also nice to see the guy in danger for once, rather than the girl who needs rescuing!
More importantly, though, Chase and Jessie make a great couple. Their clashes energize the story and keep you reading all the way through.
The only real complaint I have is over what happened (or didn't) to Laton Bowdre. I also wasn't too fond of the last few chapters in Spain, but only because the situation with Rodrigo seemed a bit forced. However, these aren't enough to detract from the story, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
"Brave the Wild Wind" is a delight to read. Be sure to read its two sequels, "Savage Thunder" and "Angel," as well. "Savage Thunder" is my all-time favorite JL and the best of the trilogy, with White Thunder as the hot male lead.

This is the only Johanna Lindsey book that I never finished. A Lindsey book is usually like pizza--even when it's bad, it's still good. But this book was horrible. Read morePublished on July 23 1999
The best part about this book is the prologue, which is quite exciting. After that the book loses the momentum.Published on May 28 1999
I'm a big fan of Johanna Lindsey and I read any of her books that I can get ahold of. This book lives up to all her others. It's wonderfully writen, funny, and very sweet. Read morePublished on April 27 1999
