This review is of Ride the Free Wind book 2 in the Savage Destiny series by Rosanne BittnerThe story Ride the Free Wind begins shortly after the first book Sweet Prairie Passion ended Abigail Abbie Trent Monroe and her husband Cheyenne Zeke Monroe are traveling to find Zeke s Cheyenne relatives his mother and three Cheyenne half brothers Zeke also has three white half brothers one of whom Danny Monroe is introduced in this book Danny as well as one of Zeke s Indian brothers Swift Arrow will play pivotal roles as the series goes on There are also three evil characters introduced who will adversely affect Zeke Abbie their family and the Cheyenne They areDancing Moon An Arapaho Indian woman and Zeke s former over Dancing Moon becomes intensely jealous when Zeke brings Abbie into the Cheyenne camp This emotion The Patriot Bride leads to a series of attacks against both Zeke and Abbie Zeke takes revenge on Dancing Moon but does not kill her a decision he will come to rue as the series continuesWinston Garvey A US Senator whousts after money and power Garvey aspires to become a war profiteer when the US and Mexico go to war among other plans Jonathan Mack Garvey s right hand man Mack hires Zeke to act as a scout for a dangerous expedition What Zeke doesn t know is that Mack has stashed contraband in the wagons so that HE can profit from the Mexican American WarAs the book goes on Zeke and Danny find each other Zeke and Abbie become parents of two children a son Little Rock and a daughter Blue Sky but both they and the Cheyenne and the rest of the Native American tribes deal with sadness and anger as their ways of ife are forever altered by the encroachment of white society Upside As usual Ms Bittner s writing is exuisite I feel Upside As usual Ms Bittner s writing is exuisite I never feel if m reading a book she writes but rather that I am watching the characters in front of me and I feel every one of their emotions especially Zeke and Abbie s I feel their happiness and I feel their pain and that is something only the truly great authors can engender in me I also ike the fact that Ms Bittner writes Zeke as a totally human character Unline Gray Eagle the hero of Janelle Taylor s EcstasyGray Eagle series who is often written as omnipotent Ms Bittner doesn t write Zeke that way During the course of the Savage Destiny series Zeke is shot and injured and allowed to be human This is great to see and makes Zeke a total character as opposed to a caricature Downside In addition to what I wrote in my review of Sweet Prairie Passion I can add one criticism of Ms Bittner at times the Savage Destiny series is formulaic The formula goes ike this Zeke and Abbie are happy Zeke and Abbie are separated Abbie andor Zeke is attacked Zeke finds the attackers and inflicts maximum pain on the malefactors Before Usually Killing Them Lather Rinse Repeat Sex Ms Bittner usually killing them Lather rinse repeat Sex Ms Bittner ove scenes are very salty this is not a compliment Salt to me is a very basic spice and that also describes Ms Bittner s Understanding Women love scenes Basic at best Violence Ms Bittner s scenes here however are far from basic As usual there are scenes of assault rape and various killings When Zeke does it it s aittle graphic and creative Bottom Line I m much willing to forgive Ms Bittner. Abandoning everything she had ever known Abigail Trent eft her family and chose her fate to ride with Zeke Monroe half Che. ,
