Showcasing Kaki Warner’s Newest!

I’ve been a Kaki Warner fan since I read her very first book, Pieces of Sky. Her western historical romances just speak to me. And when she started writing her Heartbreak Creek series I was really hooked. Now, her final one in that series will close the chapter on the town of Heartbreak Creek, Colorado. I’m so sad. I’ve waited a long time for this story though. Through 5 books, I’ve longed for her to finish the story of Thomas Redstone (an American Indian) and Prudence Lincoln (a woman  whose blood is mixed with white.) I know I won’t be disappointed.

Home By MorningThe award-winning author of Where the Horses Run makes her eagerly anticipated return to Heartbreak Creek for the final book in a trilogy of soul-stirring historical romance.

Thomas Redstone—a former Cheyenne warrior seeking new purpose by following the ways of his white grandfather—is returning to Heartbreak Creek, Colorado, when he decides to give the woman he loves one last chance to accept him into her life.

Prudence Lincoln’s beauty and education have brought her little joy. Envied by blacks for the advantages she’s had, and reviled by whites for her mixed blood, she’s proving herself by helping ex-slaves prepare for newfound freedom. Thomas has no place in her future, no matter how much she loves him.

He’s suffered only hardship. She was raised in privilege. Their only common ground is the spark between them that won’t die. Yet even as evil forces tear them apart again, they discover that courage can be a weapon, happiness is a choice, and love can triumph over anything.

Do you like reading stories about characters of mixed blood? In the 1800s no one accepted these people and treated them as outcasts. Conflict galore.

I’m offering another $10 Amazon gift card and will post the winner on Saturday, July 11.

  1. I’m reading this book now and LOVING it. I really enjoy books featuring characters from diverse cultural and/or racial backgrounds in an accurate historical context. Kaki is so talented and she brings these fascinating characters to life. Can’t wait for her to visit me tomorrow at Get Lost in a Story.

    • Hi Elisabeth! Thank you for coming over. So happy to see you, my friend. I totally agree about Kaki. If you haven’t read her first series, The Blood Rose trilogy, you should. That’s what got me started with her. I’ve read everything of hers since. I’ve especially been waiting for Thomas’s and Prudence’s love story. Kaki teased us with it through 6 books. I know it’ll be great. I’ve ordered it from Amazon but it hasn’t shipped yet. I’m so tempted to purchase the Kindle copy and start reading. Be lots faster.

      I’ll be over at GLIAS tomorrow to see her over there. Yippee!

      Have a wonderful evening, dearest friend!

  2. EE., I’m really looking forward to tomorrow. And thanks for all the kind words. And another thank you to Linda, for giving me a shout-out today. I love how there are so many active and talented western historical romance writers out there, and you two are two of the best. I really appreciate your support.

    • Hi Kaki! Thank you for coming over. I’m really happy to see you. You know I’ve been a fan since the first. You have a special talent for showing the grit of the old West. I like how you don’t try to gloss it over. Neither do I. Aw, thank you for the compliment! That’s so sweet of you to say.

      I’ll see you tomorrow over at GLIAS! Thanks again for coming.

    • Hi Anon1001! Thank you for stopping by. I always appreciate your coming and your support. I do hope you enjoy the books of hers in your TBR pile. She’s a great author who can tell a tale like nobody’s business.

      Good luck in the drawing!

  3. Oh thank you. I’m a long time fan of Ms. Warner’s and this is just my kind of story. Love it !

    • Hi Helena! Welcome to my website. So glad you came. I see that we share a love for Kaki’s books. Yes, ma’am. I’ve been waiting for this one of hers for so long. I know I won’t be disappointed. If only Amazon would get moving and send it!!

      Good luck in the drawing!

  4. If the depictions are accurate, it is interesting to see how characters of mixed blood managed in society through the years. Though rarely accepted, they were treated in different ways depending on the time, place, and the degree of their differentness. Those who could “pass” and be perceived as white took the advantages it gave.
    HOME BY MORNING sounds like a well developed characters who while hampered by their mixed heritages have become stronger to deal with it.

    • Hi Patricia B! Thank you for coming over. So happy to see you. I’m glad you liked Kaki’s book. I’ve followed this series all the way through so you can say I’m a big fan. Thomas and Prudence are great characters. She was fathered by a white slave owner and grew up alongside his white daughter. The wife was furious and burned Prudence, scars she still carries.

      I agree about the privileges that were there for those who passed as white. And they did. In my story Forever His Texas Bride, Brett was raised as a white person and he didn’t even know which tribe he came from or how to “be” Indian until he was a grown man. Yet, society always treated him horribly and scorned him.

      Thanks again for coming! You’re always welcome here. Good luck in the drawing!

  5. This is one book I really want to read. It has everything that makes a win win read for me.

    • Hi Cyn, thank you so much for stopping by! I’m happy to see you. Yes, Home By Morning is a great book. In fact, all of Kaki’s books are exceptional. I’m just a huge fan of her work and have every one of her books on my keeper shelf.

      Wishing you lots of luck in the drawing!

    • Hi BN100! Thank you for coming by. It’s great to see you. I’ve entered you in the drawing. Wishing you lots of luck.

  6. I love Kaki’s work, she is awesome! I have been really busy this week so haven’t had much time on line. I am really looking forward to this book.

    • Hi Quilt Lady! Thank you for coming to read about Kaki’s new book. I see you’re a huge fan of hers also. I can certainly see why. I love the gripping way she tells a story. She grabs hold of you on the first page and doesn’t let you go. I became a fan with her Blood Rose Trilogy that was set in New Mexico. Man, that was a good series! I don’t know if you read her first book Pieces of Sky but you should. That was a great story.

      I’ve entered you in the drawing. Wishing you lots of luck!

      • Yes I loved the Blood Rose Trilogy, Hanks story was my favorite and I have them on my keeper shelf.
