Book Description

Dec 1 1989 Avon Historical Romance
Newly widowed after a shockingly brief marriage to an elderly British lord, Jocelyn Fleming still aches with the pain of unexplored desire. And now her restless heart is leading her far from the protective bosom of polite London society to the perilous beauty of the American West . . .and to Colt Thunder.

Breathlessly exciting but dangerously unpredictable, Colt is a loner whose Cheyenne blood burns hotter than the blistering Arizona sun. Jocelyn's wealth and title mean nothing to this strange whose passion rules his actions and his heart. But neither the wild desert stallion nor the untouched English rose can deny their irresistible attraction. . .or prevent the firestorm of emotion that erupts when their vastly different worlds collide.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Lindsey's ( Defy Not the Heart ) latest is an exercise in formula writing, with no more passion than a stack of index cards. The story pairs a quintessential Lindsey heroine and hero, but the sparks don't fly. Jocelyn Fleming, a young English widow traveling across the U.S. to escape a murderous detective, and Colt Thunder, a half-Cheyenne drifter with an implacable hatred of white women, never quite become convincing characters. The plot, obstacle-heavy and motivation-thin, fails the duo and never tests the mettle Lindsey clearly intends each principal to have. Neither narrative nor romance is sufficiently robust to sustain the long, long trek through the still-wild West. Diehard Lindsey fans will probably enjoy going through the motions with Jocelyn and Colt, as even this weak showing is characteristically stylish, but the bestselling romancer won't win new admirers.

From Library Journal

Lowell's volume follows protagonist Alana Reeves, who, suffering from amnesia, must try to unravel the circumstances of her husband's death. Things get even more complicated when an earlier love, long believed dead, resurfaces. More for the romance crowd, Lindsey's title presents the tale of a beautiful woman and a handsome scoundrel in the Old West. Both of these are perfect beach reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely loved it Sept. 11 2007
By Melanie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book in two days; I just could not put it down. I'm not usually one for Western Romance Novels but I got hooked on this one. Such interesting characters a duchess and a Cheyenne Warrior, combine that with a great story and the steamy love scenes, who could resist. I also enjoyed the fact that the leading lady wasn't some push over; she was spunky and could hold her own. Johanna Lindsey you have not let me down yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd give it 10 stars, if I could June 29 2004
By Dakota
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Savage Thunder" is my favorite Lindsey romance, hands down. From the gripping first chapter in which the hero, Colt Thunder, is almost whipped to death for being half-Cheyenne, to the many, many HOT love scenes, "Savage Thunder" is a wonderful story you just can't put down.
I adore Colt, who is the best JL hero EVER! He is a moody, dangerous "breed" who struggles to control his desire for Jocelyn, a widowed English Duchess as fiery as her red hair. The pair has great chemistry together, whether it is in sizzling repartee or a tumble in bed (or, in some instances, on a horse).
The storyline is also intriguing. Jocelyn is plagued by an assassin out to kill her, and this puts her in some interesting positions, including being kidnapped. We also get to meet "cold-blooded" Angel at this point, who gets his own story later on in the aptly titled Lindsey romance, "Angel."
Whatever criticisms I have about "Savage Thunder" are minor. For one, Lindsey went into A LOT of detail describing extraneous scenes like the famous showdown in Tombstone with Wyatt Earp. She also brought in Billy from "Brave the Wild Wind" as the reason why Colt was in Arizona and, of course, literally runs into the Duchess. But Billy is forgotten after that (I wouldn't mind Billy getting his own story, by the way).
I recommend "Savage Thunder" with a passion. It is the best Lindsey romance, in my opinion, followed only by "Once a Princess." However, before you read "Savage Thunder," read its awesome prequel, "Brave the Wild Wind," where Colt is still living with his Cheyenne tribe and is known as White Thunder. Then, after you read "Savage Thunder," be sure to read "Angel," which takes place just days after "Savage Thunder" ends.

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is a page turner. The story is action- packed. The characters are vivid. My only complaint is that the leading couple do not share
much happiness together.
Colt Thunder is an angry, vengeful, resentful half- breed who has sworn off white women. He has a good reason: after courting a white woman
in the past, he was savagely whipped nearly to death. However, this experience has made him rather mean- spirited. His rudeness and spite get
old at times, especially when he is aiming it at a woman who treats him with respect and friendship. But he also proves to be a brave and powerful hero, who saves the lady's life several times.
Jocelyn is an English Duchess, who is traveling the world to keep from being caught and murdered by a hitman. For 3 years, she has not known
peace. During an ambush, her coach is thrown down a hill. Handsome Colt Thunder shows up to help her. She is instantly attracted to him, but
he seems bitter for reasons she can't understand. (She later learns it is because she is white, and he likes her.)
Jocelyn is on a mission to lose her virginity. Her deceased husband was impotent. She feels she must lose her virginity to someone who is not
within her own social circle before she can remarry, to keep the public from knowing of her husband's embarrassing condition. Colt Thunder
becomes her target. She sets out to seduce him, with plans of using him free herself of her innocence.
Colt wants to stay as far away from Jocelyn as possible. He doesn't want to bring her reputation down by her being seen with him. He also
does not want a repeat whipping.
Jocelyn manages to trap Colt into acting as a guide for her traveling group of servants and guards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes indeed, you gotta Love a Lindsey Oct. 9 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
You see it on the covers and I've heard it in some reading circles, yes, you GOT TO LOVE A LINDSEY. I've read Savage Thunder a couple of times over the past few years when I've needed a break from the "real world" and this book sure does it. We first met Colt, aka,White Thunder, and a few of his family members in Brave the Wild Wind. Savage Thunder picks Colt and Jocelyn's story. Johanna Lindsey doesn't write the generic bodice ripper seen in the early Rosemay Rogers books -- yes, there IS hot sex -- but its between partners who are in their own way faithful to each other and love each other deeply. While Lindsey's books are escapist reading, are generally written in another time (or planet) they also deal with many of our modern issues around race,religion and cultural misunderstanding. Anyone can pick up one of her books and relate to parts,if not all of them.
Colt, like many of Lindsey's hero's is hurt physically and emotionally, he's vulnerable and hides it until he meets Jocelyn who has no preconceived notions, enjoys life and begins to heal his hurts. In this, Lindsey's 25th book, there is more character development and it almost feels like you know or could know and admire these people. Her descriptions of the places they travel through feed the imagination so that if you are looking to "escape" for a short period of time to another place and time your mind certainly takes you there.
Its an easy read, but one you want to read over and over again.
