  1. This is going to be a hard book to get over I finished it a couple of hours ago and I m still thinking about it It was one very emotional read, filled with so much angst, violence, and thankfully, love, and although it was beautifully written, at times it was very tough to read By the time I finished, I had a headache from crying and my stomach was tied up in knots But darn it, I wanted I m dying to know what happens next with Hunter and Loretta.At times both Loretta s and Hunter s stubborness [...]

  3. 5 Stars I decided to do this review in an epistolary format.My Dear Friends,MelissaB recommended Comanche Moon as a good Native American Romance Thanks, Melissa Then, I noticed Comanche Moon was a popular recommendation in the Secret Santa gift exchange on the We Love Lisa Kleypas Group, being recommended several times After being unable to decide what to read as my first read of 2011, and deciding to blindly choose from a selected pile of books that I was most looking forward to reading, the fa [...]

  4. Comanche Moon was an incredible book I stayed up almost to 2 30am at night reading it although I try to go to bed semi early on the weekends because it messes me up for the weeknights since I have to get up really early , but finally made myself put the book down and go to sleep First thing the next morning I started reading it again, until I had to go pill my cat, and ended up moving onto my chores I went the whole gamut of emotions reading it It reminded me why I avoid books focusing on the In [...]

  5. A wonderful story about two worlds colliding Native American heroes are some of my favorites, although they are sometimes tough to read due to the tragic nature of their lives This was most definitely a brutal story, and I feel that I must add disclaimer about one aspect There is a scene that is NOT explicit, but that alludes to the repeated rape of a twelve year old, and gives some visuals of the aftermath I was a little floored, because I really didn t expect that to happen, and it colored my [...]

  6. 5 stars Frontier Western Historical RomancePowerfulat s the one word that I would use to describe this book.So much has been said about Comanche Moon and there are numerous glowing reviews, and for very good reason There s no way that I can adequately summarize this phenomenal book or do it ample justice with a review, so I won t even try It s simply earth shattering, extremely moving, and heartbreaking in its depiction of the brutal cost of war and senseless violence and the infinite power of f [...]

  7. Empec con un enganche tremendo porque la historia me conquist al instante.La verdad es que es una historia bonita, pero el libro se me ha terminado haciendo largu simo.Est bien la historia que cuenta Cuestiona qui nes son los malos en una guerra, unos, otros , no son realmente todos los que pierden Todo eso con una historia de amor entre enemigos naturales Qu me ha fallado Las numerosas idas y venidas, el ahora si, ahora no Los incontables abusos a las mujeres me han agotado mentalmente Es que n [...]

  9. This book was fantastic I was hooked from the first page and had to finish reading it in one day not much work done in the office It was honest, moving, heart aching I think the author portrayed the era very well Nice to have some Comanche language used also Loved the heroine Cannot wait for the next installment and Amy and Swift s story Highly recommend this book.

  10. Second Review May 23, 2009 Awesome storytelling Enjoyed how the author weaved her tale of love and hate prejudices Loretta Jane Simpson was in her 20 s living with her mother s sister, Rachel, and her abusive husband, and their child, Amy Rose age 12 somewhere in Northwest Texas Loretta witnessed her mother and father get slaughtered by a group of Indians 7 years earlier and hadn t talked since There was a prophecy that the Comanches believed about a yellow haired woman, who didn t speak, would [...]

  11. virivillarreal 2016 01No se como lo consigue Catherine Anderson, pero en sus novelas al menos en las que he le do siempre consigue pellizcarme el coraz n un poquito cada vez Antes de empezar con la rese a tengo que dar una queja a las editoriales Ya s que soy s per quejumbrosa o quisquillosa pero esto tengo que sacarlo que si no se me pudre dentro C mo es posible que hasta los nombres propios los traduzcan Es horrible NO LO HAGAN En serio, u.u Por qu lo hacen Me refiero a que desde el primer lib [...]

  12. This book is incredible Wonderful Thought provoking Heartbreaking I couldn t keep my nose out of it for the past two days At one point I misplaced it, and all hell broke lose I was SO ticked off, and everyone in the house paid for it Turns out, a dog had shoved it under my bed, but anyway, back to the review I ve read a few frontier historicals, and I m realizing they are becoming one of my favorites The harsh lives these people lived are incredible The conflict between the whites and Indians wa [...]

  13. parrafosenelvientoEsta es una historia maravillosa, de esas como se encuentran pocas La escritora se sale por completo de los t picos, y no es s lo una historia de amor sino que va m s all de eso Es una lucha entre dos pueblos, la historia de dos personas que odian por completo lo que el otro representa, el dolor de tantas desgracias y la muerte de forma brutal de muchos a los que amaban.Los personajes est n muy bien construidos, incluso los secundarios, y las relaciones est n perfectamente elab [...]

  14. Preciosa historia, maravillosa, reflexiva, se nota que me ha encantado no se por que me resist tanto tiempo a leerla, pensaba que el tema de los indios no iba a gustarme, y me encant , me fascin esa manera de hablar de Cazador, ha sido un libro maravilloso, me he pegado un madrugon para terminarlo, pens en restarle una estrellita por falta de ep logo, pero me di cuenta que sabremos mas de ellos en el siguiente libro y eso es bueno no como dir a mi hermoso Cazador lo recomiendo totalmente, derech [...]

  15. Buddy Read with Luli The problem that I find when I read a romance that was initially published in 1991 is that it can be passe now I usually run into this with older contemporary love stories Technology has changed, well known celebrities were mentioned in a positive light that took a downward turn years later, popular songs were listed that are now out of vogue I think you understand the general idea Unfortunately, the historical yarn Comanche Moon was tempered with age and, at least for me, i [...]

  16. Si pudiera, le pondr a las seis estrellitas Decir que me ha gustado es quedarme corta Me ha destrozado Y realmente felicito a la escritora por esta magn fica historia y por tener la valent a de escribirla y sacarnos del confort del algod n rosa.

  17. I think I have to repeat what Christel said and say Wow This was a very powerful story was a great dynamic to it I was fascinated and appalled all at once as I was reading Once you finish, you can understand why Anderson had a hard time selling this book when she first tried back in the late 80 s as she mentions in the preface There s nothing pretty or gentle or sweet about the story It does have its sweeter moments, but for the most part it s harsh and brutal and thought provoking Yet at the sa [...]

  18. Wonderful western historical romance Catherine Anderson really can weave a great story with heart pounding action and a tender passion between two very different people I really enjoyed this one, and I plan to continue to read in this series My only negative was that I listened to this one on my iPod, which I honestly would not recommend I wish I read it instead of listened to it Although the story itself was amazingly good, the reader s voice left much to be desired At times you can hear her s [...]

  19. Post listen review.What adjective should I use to describe how bad this is Tragically bad Majestically bad Unfailingly bad Insanely bad Do you get that I think it s bad I subjected my ears to 21 hours of this garbage It was awful.Here is what happens in the book There is some sort of a prophecy Always a good start right where a Comanche warrior is going to meet a honey haired woman and ummm get it on with her I guess and then they will move west The Comanche warrior, Hunter of the Wolf, whom I m [...]

  20. Comanche Moon is Native American romance at its best It is a powerful, intense and brutally honest story of two people caught up in the ultimate forbidden love they defied decades of history and the steadfast customs of two warring nations to follow their hearts and be together.Hunter of the Wolf is a fierce Comanche warrior who, for good reason, has devoted his life to fighting the great fight against the white man However, from birth he has known that he is the chosen one to fulfill an ancient [...]

  21. Maravillosa historia Me ha encantado de principio a fin Ambos protagonistas me han robado el coraz n Ella por su fuerza y corage y l porque es un hombre de pies a cabeza, amable, cari oso, comprensivo, lo que tiene que aguantar el pobre en algunas ocasiones Y, en todo caso, el trato que le da a Loretta es impecable La historia de amor es preciosa, se cuece a fuego lento como a m me gusta, les da tiempo a conocerse y a amar lo que ven Ahora no s si atreverme con el resto de la serie, creo que ten [...]

  22. Esta historia me ha enternecido y me ha hecho sufrir, No esper is encontrar la t pica historia rom ntica ambientada en el Oeste, pasan cosas muy feas que me hicieron encogerme, porque si estamos en el salvaje Oeste y la lucha entre colonos e indios es terrible Y como en todas las guerras ocurren atrocidades y todos los bandos atacan y sufren La autora los narras no pasando de puntillas sobre ellas Me ha gustado mucho los protagonistas, Hunter es un comanche y su pueblo es parte de l Es fiero, va [...]

  23. I didn t like or dislike this book It s sort of one of those books that s just there , an average read with nothing exciting but with things that bugged me than stood out as wow that was great Anderson s frontier story started off well enough with the settlers and the Indians at war There s your gruesome warfare on both sides, an okay heroine and a hero with potential but it just missed the mark in terms of coming together as a good love story I found it all to be very long once I hit the three [...]

  24. There is so much to say about this book, but I feel like I m late,because everybody has read it already and rated it as well.Even though everything about this book has been mentioned already, I ll try to keep my review short.This was a wonderful, perfect romantic story I was totally hooked and addicted to it from the first page I guess it has everything you are looking for when you pick up a book in this genre I even cried like a baby once or twice,lol The relationship between the two main chara [...]

  25. There have been some wondrous reviews written about this book so I ll not even attempt to out write themWhat I will do though is tell you that I have never read a book like this, and I doubt I ever will again.The hate the fear the love the coming together of polar opposites to meet and walk as one literally has you sobbing one minute and rejoicing the next Anderson gifts you with the heat of the sun, the sound of horse hooves beating the earth, the whispers of the flowing streams and the vibrant [...]

  26. Comanche Moon is the kind of epic love story that they just don t write any Of course, as my friend Lady Jayne pointed out, they apparently didn t write them even when this book was published I cannot imagine what editors were thinking when they asked author Catherine Anderson to change her story if she wanted to sell it, but we should be very grateful that she didn t listen.Most romance readers, like me, will have heard of Comanche Moon even if they haven t read it It is a classic for a reason [...]

  27. I have never been much of a fan of Westerns Having grown up in a family of cowboys, then taught and grown close to many Indians on various reservations, I find most novels dealing with the subject so trite and cliche ridden that they sound silly and only end up annoying me That is why Comanche Moon was such a revelation, it was wonderful Both the white and Indian characters were written honestly and intelligently Ms Anderson doesn t white wash the problems but deals with them in a way that is bo [...]

  28. Nueva autora para mi, nueva serie y un buen comienzo Le pongo solo 3 estrellas porque la verdad que con tantas idas y vueltas se me hizo un poco largo el libro y la primera mitad algo tediosa, sobre todo porque la protagonista femenina no podia hablar, luego se hace mucho mas ameno de leer, al menos as me result a mi.Me gust conocer al pueblo Comanche, nunca hab a le do una historia centrada totalmente en ellos, y a pesar de la violencia y todos los hechos despreciables el libro esta narrado en [...]
