Review: She Steals My Breath (The Medicine Man Book 1) by Karen Kay


Her Beauty Takes His Breath Away… Only She Can Restore It

Eagle Heart of the Blackfoot Nation has not come to the trading post, Fort Union, to trade, but to find his missing brother. The medicine man has never seen a white woman, but, when she walks into the room, her beauty literally steals his breath.

Laylah McIntosh has assets besides beauty that make her valuable to her father, the fort’s trader: her skill with numbers, her photographic memory and her knowledge of the sign language used by all the tribes. But, when she’s injured and caught in a fierce blizzard, it is Eagle Heart, alone, who rescues her.

Forced into each other’s company, their attraction deepens. But a union between them is forbidden in both their worlds.

Can their love find a way to survive? Or will their differences separate them forever?


My Review:

A beautifully told American Indian love story.

Every time I read one of Karen Kay’s books, I come away feeling I have learned so much.  Not only are her books informative, they are also highly entertaining.  I feel this is one of her best yet.  I can’t wait to read more in the Medicine Men series. 

In this book, we see how two people, of different cultures, defy the odds to be together.  It will take courage, strength and trust for Eagle Heart and Laylah to make their new life together as they travel across the wild lands of Montana in search of Eagle Heart’s brother, while growing more in love every day and trying to hide from their enemies.
