Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had a ton of problems with this book and I'm finding it really difficult to review because as much as this story confused me, annoyed me and downright offended me, in the end as much as I wanted to I just didn't hate it. I did however breathe a sigh of relief when I finished.

Written in 1989 Mackenzie's Mountain is a contemporary romance however it reads and for the first 100 pages I thought it was a historical, taking place around 1890-1910. It takes place in small town Wyoming and has a Little House On the Prairie feel to it along with lots of prejudice and small minded gossip. The heroine is a schoolteacher who has just moved to teach in their 1 room school house. She is plain in appearance with her hair in a bun, horn rimmed glasses, a shapeless dress, sensible shoes and zero life experience having been raised by her old fashioned Aunt (presumably in a cave). Mary in fact has never even worn a pair of jeans and has definitely never been kissed. She is however clichéd with thoughts like this one;

"Only shameless hussies would wear a skirt without a proper petticoat underneath"

Yes she also speaks like she's from the 1900's and her character seemed stranger to me still when I realized it was meant to be 1989 (don't know many people that wore petticoats in 1989)

Anyways Mary is concerned that one of her better students has quit school and goes to his home to find out why where she meets Wolf Mackenzie and this is when I started to get offended and I`m using the authors words here Not Mine. Wolf is an Indian and an angry Indian because he spent time in jail for a crime he didn't commit and everyone in town hates and distrusts him.

I do NOT like to knock a Howard because she is one of my FAVORITE authors, but this heroine was way over the top in the 'stupid department.' I realize this was written in the 1980's when the heroine was expected to be shy and reserved and virginial, yet strong and independent, but she came out as stupid (wince...I am so sorry Ms Howard) and very, very unbelievably ignorant of men and the world in general. She gave off this 'kill 'em all' attitude that just was nausiating to me.
A 29 year old spinster extrordinaire with a knack for letting the readers and the hero listen to her moronic and irritating dribble about her uptight and weird Aunt Ardith's rules of conduct got to be too much for me and I just lost any respect for her or why the hero Wolf would even like her.
A few of the secondary characters called her 'goody-goody' and I have to agree. She was a little too perfect and old fashioned for her age. Wolf deserved much better. The naivety was so bad that I was shaking my head and laughed outright when Wolf whispered a 'dirty' word in her ear about the sex act he'd like to perform on her and she had the gall to act confused and ask him what it meant and to show her. Whatever. Anyway, this is the 1980s, not the 1880s. Come on, get real.
This is the first in the Mackenzie series, which includes MacKenzie's Mission, MacKenzie's Pleasure, MacKenzie's Magic and A Game of Chance.
Mary Elizabeth Potter is a spinster in every way imaginable. The clothes and the 'sensible shoes' she wears. She has no idea if she will ever fall in love and doesn't look for it. Things change when she volunteers to go to the small town of Ruth, WY as a schoolteacher. She is a great teacher and puts her whole self into teaching children.
One child gets her attention, Wolf MacKenzie's son.

MACKENZIE'S MOUNTAIN - Linda Howard
A small Wyoming town is about to learn a few lessons -- from a new schoolteacher with the courage to win the heart of a man who swore he had nothing to give...
Mary Elizabeth Potter is a self-appointed spinster with no illusions about love. But she IS a good teacher -- and she wants Wolf Mackenzie's son back in school. And after one heated confrontation with the boy's father, she knows father and son have changed her life forever.
Still paying for a crime he didn't commit, Wolf Mackenzie has a chip on his shoulder the size of Wyoming. But prim-and-proper Mary Elizabeth Potter doesn't see Wolf as the dangerous half-breed the town has branded him. Somehow she sees him as a good, decent, honest man. A man who could love...
Wolf's not sure he -- or the town of Ruth, Wyoming -- is ready for the taming of Wolf Mackenzie.

One of my personal favorites, although there is alot of them, happens to be Mackenzie's Mountain.
With a southern teacher and a half breed Indian, what more could you want.
Mary, newly moved into town, finds out that Wolf's son Joe dropped out of school. Doing the right thing she goes over and demands to know why.
With a town hostal against Wolf because of a charge he didn't do, the town has never excepted them. But when Mary moves is the lines begin to waver and some one out there doesn't appreciate it much.
With the town in an up roar with only one man to blame, thinks strt to get intersting.
From the start I liked this book. With a hero who has strong erges and a heroine more than willing to explore them, it was a go from the start.
Comapired to other books I have read that featured any type of indian, I like the way Linda Howard betraied her's best. I highly recommend this book, and hope that you enjoy it as I have!
