I read this book sometime ago. It is a short book. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
I found it interesting and maybe hard to believe a kidnapped person would help the perpetrator but stranger things have happened and heard of. Today we are much more weary of people than we would have been almost 40 years ago. We have to remember it is a book and strictly for entertainment. Sometimes fiction is very close to the truth.
Lucas a Native American broke out of jail to see his grand-father before his death and attend the funeral. He was in jail for a crime he didn't commit. His request was denied. Lucas took matters in his own hands. He took Aislinn, hostage and fell in love with her. The problem, she was every thing he detested and hated. she was rich, and white. But she also had his baby to which he would not let go. Lucas returned to Aislinn's condo to apologize to her he found a surprised, she had a son by him. Lucas was a proud man who embraced his heritage.
I enjoyed the book even with the strange things that makes you wonder. It is one of Sandra Brown earlier works. Basically what this proves is that there is nothing new under the sun. Love transcends. I loved the way Aislinn was portrayed as such a strong person who matched the strong personality of Lucas. It was refreshing how Lucas mother was done with such a forgiving heart.
At times we need refreshing books to read. I am an avid reader of romance therefore, this is the kind of stuff I enjoy. It does not matter is was written almost 40 years ago. It does not seem dated except for technology the subject matter does not change.
I would have liked the book to have been longer: maybe she could have talked more about Lucas father and why he did what he did. All in all, it was a short read, but enjoyable one. It's hard to get a romance without suspense and drama where it ties in just right. This book was predictable as in you knew they would end up together and there would be a baby knowing Sandra Brown earlier works, but the fun is how the story unfolds I read the book in one sitting and listened to it in one day.

While I love Sandra Brown's romantic suspense, I've not had much luck with her early category romances. This 2012 production of a 1986 romance is delightful thanks to very appealing lead characters. There's a satisfying dollop of raw emotional conflict and angst that rings true. Renee Raudman, as usual, nails it, enhancing the written word with her intuitive performance.
