  • This is the first of an amazing series. It is my favorite series and has been for many years. I have re-read this story (all 7 books) at least 20 times over. I own the original covers, the 1996 covers (these are so worn they probably shouldn't be used anymore lol), and can't wait to get the new covers - all in paperback!

    Abbie is a strong girl who becomes a woman almost overnight. The obstacles she overcomes will have you fighting with her - for her, crying with her, laughing with her, and holding your breath for her. The love she has for Zeke is not some puppy love that fades over night, it is real and deep. There is no age limit on love. Zeke is everything you could ever want in a strong alpha man. He is the Alpha of all alphas. He holds the bar to where all other male characters in other books should be. (my opinion)

    This story has everything you could want or need in a historical western romance. I don't know what to say to tell you to give this story a chance other than READ IT... everything else will spoil it! But, hands off, Zeke is mine hahahaha

    Seriously, it's my favorite series. I would recommend it a thousand times over. Especially if you are a western romance, or native american romance lover, this is the book for you. If you are hesitant, don't be.

    Miss Bittner has created something special with this series. It is like a classic that needs to be cherished, loved, and passed down to the next generation.

  • This review is of “Sweet Prairie Passion”, book #1 in the “Savage Destiny” series by Rosanne Bittner.

    The Story: In 1845, a wagon train is headed from Tennessee west to Oregon. Among those on the train is Jason Trent, a widower, and his three children: daughters LeeAnn, 17, Abigail (Abbie), 15, the heroine of the book and the series, and son Jeremy, 7. The Trent family is leaving Tennessee because the memories of Jason’s late wife are too strong. Later, they meet up with two men who are hired to scout and lead the train, one of whom is “Cheyenne” Zeke Monroe, 25, the hero of the book and the series. The fact that Zeke is half-white and half-Cheyenne doesn’t sit well with everyone on the train, and Zeke faces bigotry from some of the train’s denizens, including some with less than savory reputations.

    As the book continues, Abigail and Zeke fall in love, but their love is threatened by his past, bigotry, hatred, intolerance, scandal and tragedy. However, even knowing that the Cheyenne Indians-and the Indian people in general-would be facing tremendous hardship, sorrow and tragedy, Zeke and Abbie fall in love and vow to be together.

    Upside: I have said this many times: In order for me to truly love a book, television show, or movie, I have to truly care about the characters and feel what they feel. Ms. Bittner makes me feel that as a reader. I felt every emotion of every character, good and bad. Zeke and Abbie are one of the strongest hero and heroine combinations I have ever read. I never felt as though I was reading a book. I felt as though I was watching Zeke and Abbie’s lives playing out in front of me, and that is something that only the truly great authors can make me feel.

    Downside: As much as I love Ms. Bittner’s writing style, there are two parts of her writing-which happens in every book I’ve read by her-that really annoy me:

    #1. Violence against women. In every one of Ms. Bittner’s books, the heroine-and sometimes the female supporting characters-are subjected to physical and sexual abuse. In “Sweet Prairie Passion”, for example, Abbie is beaten and nearly raped twice. The violence really doesn’t advance the story for me.

    #2. Dichotomy. While Ms. Bittner’s heroines are very strong emotionally, they aren’t as strong in other areas. Once again, in every book, Ms. Bittner places her heroines in some form of peril, which leads to the hero having to rescue them. It reminds me too much of the old “Popeye” cartoons where Olive Oyl is constantly needing Popeye to save her.

    Sex: Ms. Bittner’s love scenes are descriptive enough to let a reader know what is going on, but not graphic enough to be exciting.

    Violence: In addition to the violence mentioned above, there are multiple scenes of assault and killing. Most of the violence is not graphic in this book; Ms. Bittner’s later books in the series are more graphically violent.

    Bottom Line: If one wants to read books to make themselves forget about what’s going on in the world, Ms. Bittner is not your author. However, if you love books which will stir your emotions-good and bad-and leave one feeling like you’ve been on a roller coaster, Ms. Bittner’s books will be your jam.

  • This series should be read in order. This story was an emotional roller-coaster ride to the very end. The characters were so well drawn that the reader feels part of the background.

    Abigail Trent, her older sister and younger brother travel with their widowed father to the Oregon Territory. They are leaving Tennessee because of Mr. Trent's grief over his wife's death; he wants to start over again. Although Abigail is the younger daughter, she keeps the family together because the older daughter is flighty and self-absorbed.

    The leader of the wagon train is a half-breed Cheyenne Zeke. He is an incredibly strong character, as is Abbie. There is a significant difference in their ages, which put me off at first. However, with all that Abbie had to endure, she earned the right to be considered a woman.

    This is a very powerful story that kept me turning pages late into the night. I can hardly wait to continue the story with Book 2.

  • I had a hard time with the characters. A 15 year old in love with a 25 year old didnt sit right with me. I felt as if there was a lack of character development. I normally really like Rosanne's character's but something was off, almost like they weren't a good match, I just didn't see the passion.

    On a side note: I find it incredibly annoying that Rosanne tries to create strong woman characters but in every single one of her books, the female character gets raped or is about to be raped and gets saved. Her use of the word "whimper" also drives me crazy. I try to look past it but sometimes its annoying.

    My very first book of Rosanne's was Tender Betrayal and I have yet to find another of her books that holds a candle to that one.
