I’ve been a Kaki Warner fan since I read her very first book, Pieces of Sky. Her western historical romances just speak to me. And when she started writing her Heartbreak Creek series I was really hooked. Now, her final one in that series will close the chapter on the town of Heartbreak Creek, Colorado. I’m so sad. I’ve waited a long time for this story though. Through 5 books, I’ve longed for her to finish the story of Thomas Redstone (an American Indian) and Prudence Lincoln (a woman whose blood is mixed with white.) I know I won’t be disappointed.

Thomas Redstone—a former Cheyenne warrior seeking new purpose by following the ways of his white grandfather—is returning to Heartbreak Creek, Colorado, when he decides to give the woman he loves one last chance to accept him into her life.
Prudence Lincoln’s beauty and education have brought her little joy. Envied by blacks for the advantages she’s had, and reviled by whites for her mixed blood, she’s proving herself by helping ex-slaves prepare for newfound freedom. Thomas has no place in her future, no matter how much she loves him.
He’s suffered only hardship. She was raised in privilege. Their only common ground is the spark between them that won’t die. Yet even as evil forces tear them apart again, they discover that courage can be a weapon, happiness is a choice, and love can triumph over anything.
Do you like reading stories about characters of mixed blood? In the 1800s no one accepted these people and treated them as outcasts. Conflict galore.
