Review: Apache Magic by Janis Reams Hudson


To the Apaches, Daniella Blackwood was an adopted daughter, respected and cherished. To their shaman, the bold white streak in her hair made her special and her visions in the flames make her a woman of magic. Yet no magic could protect Daniella from the passion that sears her senses when she first meets Travis Colton.

To Arizona rancher Travis Colton, the mysterious Daniella is his only chance at rescuing his son. Travis and his ten-year-old son were captured by a band of Cochise’s warriors. Left for dead, Travis managed to make his way home, determined to do whatever it takes to get his son back.

Travis and Daniella’s quest together will take more than magic; it will take a passion neither is ready to handle.

I found this book to be very enjoyable, though the believability of certain circumstances were a bit of a stretch. It was a bit of a stretch to believe that someone who went through such a traumatic experience (abducted, brutally beaten, and repeatedly raped) would be able to get over it as quickly as Daniella did, but hey, that’s why they call it fiction, right?

Aside from that, I didn’t have any issues with the book, and I look forward to reading the sequel Apache Promise in the coming days.

On an unrelated note, I always enjoy discovering new authors from my home state, and was pleased to discover that Ms. Hudson is among them. I look forward to reading more of her work in the future.

If Native American romance is one of your guilty pleasures, you will likely enjoy this novel.
