SUMMARY Ú Warrior's Prize A LOVE WORTH FIGHTING FORHer Arapabo name is Singing Wind but no one at the Boston ladies' academy knows of Wannie's Indian ancestry Pretending to be Spanish royalty she has concealed her past behind fine clothes and elegant manners Now she returns to Colorado with the fiancé a wealthy bu. So I had a lot of trepidation picking up this title since Native American portrayals in romance can be pretty iffy Romance writing can be problematic in several regards but race seems to be an ongoing issue in this genre that has yet to be seriously addressed and on that I m going to get out of the way early in this review Fortunately was pleasantly surprised to find that my fears were mostly unfounded Gentry did a fair bit of research into the various cultures and for the most part she avoids a lot of the problems inherent to the genre The Native Americans are neither dehumanized nor idealized and Gentry does a decent job of examining prejudice from all angles whether it was white colonial racism inter ethnic tension cultural clashes and even internalized racism While I wouldn t say the portrayal is perfect it s still leagues above most of what s out there and the characters at least feel human regardless of what side their own I think a wise choice on the author s part was to have Keso and Wannie raised amidst white cultural norms because it allowed for less issues with narrative validityHaving that cleared up how s the actual story By my mark and keeping in mind I m fairly demanding as a reader I d score it fair to mediocre It s engaging but not tremendously well written What effort was put into the setting gets lost in the dialogue and characterization The language is blatantly anachronistic in some places and altogether not overtly organic in flow Some of the intimate scenes had cringe worthy dialogue and much of it felt like script instead of realistic conversationCharacterization is its second biggest weakness The main cast feels like archetypes than real people at times and the conflict between Cleve and Keso is so dramatic and overwrought at times that it s just bizarre Cleve is so frustrating as a character because he s a bastard and the author WANTS you to think he s a bastard that he stops being anything but THE ANTAGONIST after awhile Meanwhile Keso is so preternaturally noble and self sacrificing that it s a foregone conclusion who and what Wannie should choose by the end Wannie herself is the most human feeling of the lot having her fair share of better and worse ualities but her frustrating na vet to the behavior of the men around her takes away some of her compelling undertones She feels like a woman taken along for the ride than one making any active choice IMO Cleve would have been far interesting as a sympathetic character out of his element but still capable with Wannie having to examine herself what she wanted out of life coming to terms with her heritage and coming to a real choice that wasn t so obviously the intended one As a result it kills much of the romantic tension by the midway point of the novel and the reader is just left waiting for Cleve to meet his inevitably karmatic end It just felt like lazy writing and the kind that fed into some ugly ideas about gender and masculinity since the author seems keen to remind us that Keso is what a man SHOULD be rather than just a product of his circumstances the way Cleveland is Maybe that wouldn t be do problematic if it wasn t for scenes like his bizarre rape fantasy that involved him stealing Wannie away from an entourage and taking her to be his warrior s prize A vision that of course portends a real event later in the novel albeit thankfully less rapey in nature I get that casual misogyny is a thing and all but considering Keso is the man we re supposed to want it s a bit offputtingFinally I m going to state that the foster situation with Keso and Wannie is just bizarre to me Why complicate their relationship with an actual familial bond Why not just have them be childhood friends It adds a very ueer dimension to the emerging romance between the two one that s either toeing the line of incest taboo or wife husbandry neither of which particularly compelling or necessary to the plotOver all it s fine as a romance novel It s by no means amazing but it s racial portrayals are well above the lowball average set by previous works and it has its fair share of amusing tropes Decent fare for genre fans but not a must buy Sono il fratello di XX she has concealed her past behind fine clothes and elegant manners Now The Madness of George III she returns to Colorado with the fiancé a wealthy bu. So I had a lot of trepidation picking up this title Oskar der kleine Elefant since Native American portrayals in romance can be pretty iffy Romance writing can be problematic in ビューティーポップ 4 Byūtī poppu 4 several regards but race Gli ultimi giorni di Marilyn Monroe seems to be an ongoing issue in this genre that has yet to be The Human Stain seriously addressed and on that I m going to get out of the way early in this review Fortunately was pleasantly Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo surprised to find that my fears were mostly unfounded Gentry did a fair bit of research into the various cultures and for the most part ドグラマグラ she avoids a lot of the problems inherent to the genre The Native Americans are neither dehumanized nor idealized and Gentry does a decent job of examining prejudice from all angles whether it was white colonial racism inter ethnic tension cultural clashes and even internalized racism While I wouldn t マース Mars #15 say the portrayal is perfect it The Best of Margaret St Clair s 恋だの愛だの 1 still leagues above most of what Storia del nuovo cognome s out there and the characters at least feel human regardless of what Death Banishes Mortis #6 side their own I think a wise choice on the author City of Thieves s part was to have Keso and Wannie raised amidst white cultural norms because it allowed for less issues with narrative validityHaving that cleared up how Marrying the Enemy s the actual Sugar Cookie Murder story By my mark and keeping in mind I m fairly demanding as a reader I d La pelle score it fair to mediocre It Never Too Late s engaging but not tremendously well written What effort was put into the Unscripted Scripted #1 setting gets lost in the dialogue and characterization The language is blatantly anachronistic in Все там будем some places and altogether not overtly organic in flow Some of the intimate The Trophy Wife scenes had cringe worthy dialogue and much of it felt like The Power of Positive Thinking script instead of realistic conversationCharacterization is its L’écume des jours second biggest weakness The main cast feels like archetypes than real people at times and the conflict between Cleve and Keso is Tomorrow Is Waiting so dramatic and overwrought at times that it His Duty Her Destiny s just bizarre Cleve is Suspicions s a bastard and the author WANTS you to think he Devil's Food Cake Murder s a bastard that he Cleo stops being anything but THE ANTAGONIST after awhile Meanwhile Keso is Aus der Geschichte einer infantilen Neurose self Scratch sacrificing that it The Temptation of Lady Serena should choose by the end Wannie herself is the most human feeling of the lot having her fair The Mountain Between Us share of better and worse ualities but her frustrating na vet to the behavior of the men around her takes away The Second Sister some of her compelling undertones She feels like a woman taken along for the ride than one making any active choice IMO Cleve would have been far interesting as a Marrying Winterborne sympathetic character out of his element but Pure heart enlightened mind the Zen journal letters of Maura Soshin O'Halloran still capable with Wannie having to examine herself what The Family Beach House she wanted out of life coming to terms with her heritage and coming to a real choice that wasn t The Glamorous Dead so obviously the intended one As a result it kills much of the romantic tension by the midway point of the novel and the reader is just left waiting for Cleve to meet his inevitably karmatic end It just felt like lazy writing and the kind that fed into Autismo some ugly ideas about gender and masculinity The Divine Nine The History of African American Fraternities and Sororities in America since the author Convergence Spiritual Journeys of a Charismatic Calvinist seems keen to remind us that Keso is what a man SHOULD be rather than just a product of his circumstances the way Cleveland is Maybe that wouldn t be do problematic if it wasn t for The Single Sister Experiment What Happens When Single Women Stop Having Sex Urban Christian Urban Christian scenes like his bizarre rape fantasy that involved him Esposizione Critica Della Divina Commedia stealing Wannie away from an entourage and taking her to be his warrior Kleinstadtnovelle Rotbuch s prize A vision that of course portends a real event later in the novel albeit thankfully less rapey in nature I get that casual misogyny is a thing and all but considering Keso is the man we re My Brief History supposed to want it The Shooting Party s a bit offputtingFinally I m going to The Western Side of the Galaxy state that the foster Küsse all'arrabbiata situation with Keso and Wannie is just bizarre to me Why complicate their relationship with an actual familial bond Why not just have them be childhood friends It adds a very ueer dimension to the emerging romance between the two one that Snow Flower and the Secret Fan s either toeing the line of incest taboo or wife husbandry neither of which particularly compelling or necessary to the plotOver all it Last Night While You Were Sleeping s fine as a romance novel It The Bell Jar s by no means amazing but it Bagels from Benny s racial portrayals are well above the lowball average Nicotiana Rustica set by previous works and it has its fair The Sensory Order An Inuiry into the Foundations of Theoretical Psychology share of amusing tropes Decent fare for genre fans but not a must buy
