Nanee's Revew of the Spirit of the Wolf by Karen Kay
Many centuries ago, a village killed the children of the Thunder god. For their crime the Creator banished them to live a half existence in the land of shadows, neither dead nor alive. But once in a generation, a brave is given the opportunity to save his clan. In 1835, that warrior is Grey Coyote.
To break the curse that keeps his people enslaved, Grey Coyote must solve a riddle that demands he gain ownership of something belonging to his enemy. He is convinced this enemy is a French interpreter named Jacques LaCroix. Winning all LaCroix's possessions in a game of chance, Grey Coyote comes across one "possession" he wasn't expecting: a golden-haired beauty named Marietta Welsford.
Marietta is shocked by the sudden turn of events. Anxious to return to her family in England, she'd hired LaCroix as her guide, but now his betrayal has landed her in the hands of a stranger. Trapped in close quarters with this handsome warrior, she is left in terror of what's to become of her future—and her vulnerable heart
I enjoyed this story, I thought Grey Coyote was amazing he's smart, sexy and so part of the earth I enjoyed his teachings with Marietta, his patience and his love for her. Marietta is sweet and innocent and just wanted to get home to England but she learns to love, laugh, be one with the earth and love Grey Coyote. Loved these too together. I thought the story did drag a little in parts and wasn't as climatic as I would have thought but I still enjoyed the story and the authors descriptions and world she created. 3.5 stars
