    A beautifully written book where two worlds meet

    I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review. A well written book, Defiant Love takes one back to another time in history when the veneer of civilisation was somewhat thinner and survival of the fittest was the order of the day. When Rebecca Bradford survives a raid on her family, she finds herself living with members of the Shawnee tribe and becomes one with them, forgetting her roots and origins and evolves into a much loved daughter and member of the small community. After a raid on the Shawnee village, she once again finds herself separated from those she loves and in the hands of men who call themselves civilised but who have no respect for her as she has been found living amongst Indians. Prejudice at its worst. When her grandfather receives the message that Rebecca is alive, he sends his most faithful bondsman and step-son to retrieve her. Adam Rourke will do anything for the man who has been his mentor, even give up the inheritance that could be his if he finds Rebecca. The meeting between Rebecca and Adam is less than stellar, and although Rebecca is wily, Adam also has an inherent understanding of her, and prevents her escape at every turn. The journey back to Rebecca's grandfather is filled with danger and Adam finds Rebecca to be an asset under those conditions and his respect grows for her, as does his attraction. There is a deep attraction between Adam and Rebecca, but both of them are stuck in the ways that are familiar to them, leaving little room for mutual understanding. One wonders whether it is possible for love to survive when everything is working against it. There is a wild child quality to Rebecca but as wily and smart as she is out in the wild, she feels caged in by the strictures of society being enforced upon her, where she naive and out of her depth. When the time is right, she makes her escape. Adam has a choice, he can take the wealth that is being offered to him, or he can follow his breaking heart. There is a bitter sweet quality to this romance, laced with adventure, humour and interesting insights into the period. This is a book that is difficult to put down once you start reading, and interruptions may not be welcomed!

    A meeting of cultures

    I received a copy of this book from ebook discovery in exchange for an honest review. This is a wonderful story about the meshing of two cultures and showing at least some white men the differences between differing tribes at a time when all American tribesmen where viewed the same. Our heroine was saved by a Shawnee warrior and taken back to his village when her family were attacked by Iroquois. Many years later her grandfather finds out that she has been 'saved' and sends his stepson to bring her home. Despite the attraction between them they have to learn understand how what is logical to one is totally sending the wrong message to the other.

    The defiant love

    This book is interesting and intriguing, I enjoyed every moment of reading it. The book is about an English girl, Rebeccah Bradford who lost her family in a massacre but was rescued by a Shawnee warrior and was brought up in the Shawnee way and tradition. Another war led to her being separated from her Shawnee family and carried captive by some German who ransomed her to her English grandfather. Her grandfather sent Adam Rourke, his stepson to bring Rebeccah home. Along the way, they went through many dangers and they got attracted to each other. They went through a lot together, moreso because Rebeccah is a willful and stubborn person but their live saw them through at last. Its a nice read.
