    I got this as part of a bookswap order of several books I think I must have requested this one by accident, since I can t figure out what I was thinking if I requested it deliberately But I thought, since I had it anyway I made it about 35 pages in before I couldn t stand it any Then I skimmed through bits of the rest.Bad So, so, so bad Even for mid 90s historical romance, this is chock full of cliches, bigotry, and sexism Not to mention horrifyingly bad characterization.I almost never throw away books Give away, sure But throw away This one is going straight in the trash.

    This review is of Bright Star s Promise by Karen A Bale, the sequel to Love s Bright Star.The Story As Bright Star s Promise begins, Sandrine Renard, the half French, half Blackfoot Indian heroine also known by her Indian name Bright Star and her husband and hero of the book, Wade Colter, are married and living in New Mexico Sandrine receives word that her grandfather, Night Sun, is dying, so she leaves to go to Montana to see him Sandrine is also kidnapped by a rogue Blackfoot, but is rescued by a Crow brave, Lone Wind, whom she begins to have romantic feelings for Meanwhile, back in Montana, Wade suffers a head injury while trying to break a horse and loses his memory He begins an affair with Emily Dodd, the niece of his father figure , Jim Everett Wade s personality also changes he goes from a nice, caring man to a money and power hungry despot As the book goes on, Sandrine and Wade s relationship faces many challenges, one of which is when Wade rapes Sandrine However, they do get married and have their Happily Ever After Upside For the most part, the book is good Sandrine is the central character, and her feelings are real and Ms Bale does a good job of exploring those feelings The strongest part of the book is when Sandrine is with Lone Wind and she is conflicted about loving both of them The cover is actually the best thing about the book.Downside After he loses his memory, Wade acts like an obnoxious bastard.He goes from being a likeable hero to an unlikable anti hero, and then he rapes Sandrine, which lowers his standing even in my eyes Readers of Ms Bale s earlier books will notice the recurrence of tropes previously used.Sex The sex scenes are a little racier than usual here, but nowhere near descriptive Violence In addition to Wade s rape of Sandrine, there are other scenes of assault, shooting and killing, including human to animal killing None of the violence is graphic Bottom Line Ms Bale s well was nearly empty by this point, and Bright Star s Promise proves it.

    I read this not knowing there was a prequel to this book, so I found myself wishing for of an explanation to this story I recently found out that there is one indeed, which gives me some relief.This book isn t bad, but it is no great shakes either It is rather typical of a romance novel, with a jealous girl trying to win Wade away from Bright Star and taking advantage of said man s memory loss Fortunately, Bright Star is not alone, and her and Wade s mutual friends try to help her, but the story is fraught with trouble especially from the jealous young woman who wants Wade all to himself The ending is predictable and cliched, but overall it s not a bad book.
