While I've been waiting for a book to become available at my library, I decided to pick up a book in my to-be-read bookshelf. I believe I got this at a Goodwill or a cheap book sale. I've been on a book binge lately and been reading books very quickly. My favorite sub-genre in historical romance is Native American and Gentle Savage belongs in the group. The title was misleading, and I am surprised she didn't title it "Heart's Flame", which is the main protagonist's Blackfoot name and how everyone addresses her in the village. I really liked the male protagonist who was a gentle beta male who was kind and wonderful. The only thing that drove me absolutely nuts was the names in the book. They were so ridiculous and it was difficult to take them seriously. The female was named Valentine (because I think she was born on Valentine's Day, but I forgot) and her husband was named...Night Rider. Really? I prefer Valentine's Blackfoot name, Heart's Flame, because I couldn't help but scoff every time I read her name. When she gave birth, she named her daughter, traditionally Blackfoot, Little Beloved. I think it's sweet, but a little too saccharine for my taste. I read this book quite fast, but it had all the traditional fluff of early romance novels that I couldn't help but roll my eyes. I laughed really hard when they actually used the term "love tool". I digress, I enjoyed this book, but Valentine was a prissy character who annoyed me but eventually calmed down when she realized she was in love with Night Rider. I might read more from this author because of how well this book flowed and my penchant for Native American romances. A little too fluffy for my tastes, but her male protagonist kept me from rolling my eyes back into my head. ( )
