Title:  Where The Rain Is Made
Author:  Keta Diablo
Series:  None
Genre:  Romance, Time Travel
Publisher:  Decadant
Published:  August 12, 2010
How I Got It:  Reviewed for author


Book Summary
A decadent savage has captured Francesca DuVall and her brother, Marsh. Now she must spend every waking moment planning an escape. However, she didn’t count on the powerful draw of desire interfering with her scheme in the camp of the brutal Cheyenne dog soldiers.

Ethan Gray is a curator at a national museum . . . most of the time, but when he travels through time to help his beloved People he becomes Meko, leader of the most revered and feared tribe of the plains.

Although their worlds are decades apart Meko can’t resist the dark beauty he kidnapped during a raid. He has many battles to fight but none he wants to win more than the one that will capture Cesca’s heart forever. From the windswept plains of Colorado and the harsh life of a Dog Soldier to the placid life of a curator their love was fueled by passion and kindled by destiny.

My Thoughts
Ethan lives a double life that threatens to collide and change his life forever.  In the present, he’s Ethan but in the past he is Meko.  Meko is a time traveler send to guide and save his ancestors from a horrible fate.

I liked the story because it had time traveling, romance, and adventure.  I haven’t read many books dealing with American Indians, so I found this book to be a very interesting read.

I liked Meko because he risked his life teetering between two time periods for the greater good.   I loved  him even more when he lost his heart to Cesca,  knowing it was impossible for them to be together.

Cesca was one of those characters that did not appeal to me at all.  I thought she was a whiny, ungrateful woman.  Sure her life was a mess and I hate what happened to her and her brother, but if Meko had not saved her, her fate could have been so much worse.   

I think Keta did a great job capturing the life of American Indians.   I especially liked the names the natives had for each other.  My favorite character was the old woman.  She made me laugh nonstop with her quick tongue.

I give Where The Rain Is Made 3.5 flowers of love because I didn’t want the story to end.  The HEA was beautiful and I’m just hoping there will be more to this story.

Hi Diva's Bookcase! Thanks so much for the great review! I'm happy you liked Where The Rain Is Made. I loved writing about Meko and Cesca.

Thanks for hosting me on my blog tour too. I know how much work tours are and where would I be without all the fantastic bloggers who helped me on the tour.

Your blog is great! I love it and I'll be back often.

Good luck to everyone in the contest.

Best, Keta

I adored Where the Rain Is Made! It's one of the few books that kept me hooked non-stop from beginning to end ~ and I have to be honest and say I'm not a big fan of Native American romances because sometimes they're just so unrealistic. But this book had the quality of a romance with a history lesson included, in a very good way. Well done, Keta!
