Romance (with paranormal elements)
Danny Begay has tried to drive out the voices of his ancestors for most of his young life, but the life springing from his Navajo roots will not die. He is summoned back to Arizona to visit his dying grandfather, one of the original Navajo Code Talkers. Ashamed he has disappointed his hero grandfather he buries himself one more time in the arms of a stranger before he goes back to his home in Northern California.

Luci Tohe teaches at the reservation school, safeguarding the health of her ailing mother and little sister’s future, at the temporary expense of her own. She doesn’t expect the young Dine warrior she meets to be anything but a distraction from her loneliness. She knows she will dream about their hot encounter for years.

Danny cleans his life up, joins the Navy and becomes a SEAL, where he becomes the man he knew he was destined to become. Between deployments, he goes back visit the girl he cannot get out of his mind. The reservation has become a dangerous place for Luci’s family and soon Danny is embroiled in not only saving Luci, but her whole family as well.

I really would like to first and foremost point out that SEAL's are the super badass, as all branches of the military are. When they are also sexy as hell, well, it helps!

Though I didn't get the chance to read the previous books in this series, I didn't feel lost at all. Kudos to the author for that. You can certainly read from this point with ease. But I will add some caution, this is not a tale of fluffy romance. There are some really dark elements stacked in here. Sexual assault, violence against women and some very questionable parenting. Luci's Mom is not winning any Mother of the Year awards, that's for sure. This tale is no doubt for those who like a harder hitting romance, because it is absolutely rated R.

While our main character Danny does join the SEAL team, the story is more so about the Native American world and culture. There are loads of details about some historic involvement, life on reservations and the many colorful traditions and family life. The SEAL team and their action takes a backseat to the overall flavor of the Native feel.

I did have a hard time connecting with the lead pair, it may be due to some differences of personal beliefs or lack of understanding. whatever it was, I struggled to make that mesh. However, I still enjoyed the overall world that was developed. There's loads of mystery and twists you wont see coming, all these parts kept me entertained and interested to read how everything would turn out.

Overall, if you like darker adult romance with hints of the paranormal and Native American history, then check this one out for sure!
