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.

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.

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.

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.

i usually steer clear of the "old west" romance because i have read some that were so god awful that i was cringing every other line. after reading some of lindsey's other works i decided to give "angel," the sequel to this work, and "savage thunder a try. lindsey is a writer who writing style leads more toward the tamer side of bedroom scenes. sometimes being so vague that i wont have known that anything happened until a few chapters later. but she makes up for it wonderfully in her characters and flowing dialogue.
this story of jocelyn, a widowed duchess being hunted by a inept man trying to kill her so her money will go to her dead husband's greedy relatives, and colt, a half breed who is bitter and jaded after a horribe experience when he is found courting a "white woman" is one i had not seen before. when jocelyn sees colt she knows he is the one who can help her with her "little problem." her marriage to the duke was one of convience, he was dying and she needed a protector but he was never able to consumate the marriage. jocelyn refuses to let anyone know of this failing and so in order to marry later she must take a lover and be rid of her virginity. she hires colt as her guide for a near fortune after she traps him in a bluff and the story that follows is humorous and delightful.
like any story there is good and bad.
the good: lindsey's characters are heart warming, like some long lost friend. jocelyn and colt together were priceless and i was laughing quite a bit as jocelyn is anything but some prim and meek duchess. this book surprisingly had a few very steamy scenes and one that was rather umm shall we say creative? it was all still tasteful it just added an edge to the book in my opinion.
