Review

"A DREAMSPINNER EXTRAORDINAIRE".

Romantic Times

From the Back Cover

A master storyteller who spins romantic fiction like no other, Johanna Lindsey weaves together endearing characters, enthralling adventure and pulsating passion to create stories that touch the hearts of her readers.

In her innocence, Jessie Blair didn't understand how very much Chase Summers desired her. Her beauty haunted him; her arrogance enraged him; she defied and tormented him...until his passion spilled over into aggression. Yet nothing could soften her stubborn heart, but to tame a man's pride. And no woman tamed Chase Summers...

Yet when fortune called him halfway across the world, he realized how empty his life was without her. And the woman who had never gotten him out of her heart, knew at last where true love could be found.

"Brave the Wild Wind" is the first in a trilogy set in the wilds of Wyoming. As a Lindsey historical romance, it doesn't disappoint on the passion factor. The hero and heroine have a love-hate relationship, but it's easy to see why they'd fall in love, and such a pleasure to watch them try to deny it.
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 one of Ms. Lindsey's Western romances. Raised by an embittered father who was desperate for a son, the heroine is taught a man's skills in ranching and defending herself. When her mother is allowed back into her life, she is introduced to her mother's stepson with whom she has a passionate affair. It is an interesting story set against the Wyoming frontier, replete with Indians that come across as real characters, not cardboard. Ms. Lindsey writes with such flair that most of her books are truly a delight to read. This is another one of them. I often have trouble with her titles as they seem to bear no relationship to the storylines.

Personally, I'm not crazy about romance novels that have the hero and heroine and each other's throats, and this one does. Jessica was raised by her stubborn, angry father, who taught her to hate the mother who deserted her. Chase Summers is the stepson of Rachel (Jessica's mother), who gets caught up in the feud between Jessica and Rachel. Jessica is angry, sullen, and hard to like. Chase, too, is angry, stubborn, and not as appealing as some of Johanna Lindsey's other heroes. Together, they pretty much make each other miserable. Not one my favorites.

I Have been reading Lindsey for many years now. I have read most of her books. My favorite will always be Hearts Aflame. I strongly urge others to read this book. It is full of rebellious passion and in the midst of a historical background. I introduced her books to many of my friends and relatives and they have been buying her novels since. A good wonderful feeling after reading a Lindsey. I assure you.

I absolutely adore Johanna Lindsey, but must admit this almost beat captive bride to the "worse johanna lindsey" - however it is one of her first and every fan should read it even if just to appreciate the rest even more. what I want to know is where is the next malory? I have been waiting for Jeremy's story since we were introduced to him - what about his bet with Amy?

I enjoyed reading this book very much. I have all of Johanna Lindsey's collection. This book was one of her first published and one of the very lasts I read. Brave the Wild Wind is an exciting book that takes you into rage, love, anxiety, and more than anything passion! I recommend this book to anyone that loves historical romances.

I've been a fan of JL for over a decade and this book, as with all her others, is a keeper. What great characters and story. Whether or not you liked this book, you have to appriciate JL's wonderful story telling talent. Make sure you read the sequals to this, they are just as wonderful.

JL is one of the best romance writers and i have enjoyed many of her books but this was not one of them. the heroine was just horrible, she was a total brat. and there was'nt much romance between her and the hero, no real feelings. and he seemed to be a little afraid of her.
