Summary: A decadent-looking 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.

The Blackraven’s Review: Where The Rain Is Made by Keta Diablo is an intense, sensual, compelling, adventurous story that will have you biting your nails while sitting on the edge of your seat begging for more with the turn of every page. Ms. Diablo has created a captivating story with characters that will quickly win your heart. There is so much compassion, conflict, and a battle of wills in this story that you can’t help but root for the underdog, which are the Cheyenne dog soldiers.

It’s obvious that Ms. Diablo did her homework when developing this fascinating, yet eye-opening story regarding the Indians and the white man’s battle over land. Ethan Gray (a.k.a. Meko) who travels through time to help his people had me in awe from the very beginning. He’s intelligent, strong, loyal, honorable, and extremely decadent. I can understand why Francesca struggled not to fall in love with such a sensual man. The passion and love that he has for his people and Francesca will simply take your breath away. He is torn between the people he loves and the woman he loves and although they come from different worlds, when they’re together, it’s as though time stands still. It is a truly mesmerizing relationship. I admired Ethan (a.k.a. Meko) throughout the entire book when considering the burden that he carried in regards to knowing not only the fate of his people, but ultimately, his own fate.

There were times that it was just heart wrenching. Francesca is feisty, strong-willed, loyal and fearless when it comes to protecting the people that she love and in the beginning, it’s her younger brother Marsh. The dynamics between the two siblings will make you envious and weep all at the same time for the trials and tribulations that they’ll endure to survive.

Francesca’s strength and compassion to adapt to her surroundings had me admiring the woman with the turn of every page. I loved her relationship with Brown Wing who is wise beyond her years. The more I read, the more I enjoyed the story and didn’t want it to end. Ms. Diablo has created a tantalizing story in Where The Rain Is Made and I can’t wait to find out more about these characters. I hope that this is the first book in the series. HINT! HINT! If you’re looking for a heartfelt, compassionate, adventurous story that’s sensual, yet informative and eye opening in regards to the Cheyenne culture, then Where The Rain Is Made is the book to read.

I will definitely recommend it to my friends. Rated 5 Ravens and a Recommended Read by The Blackraven!

Blurb: A decadent-looking savage has captured Francesca DuVall and her brother, Marsh. Now she must spend every waking moment planning an escape from the camp of the brutal savages. What she doesn't count on is the powerful draw of desire interfering with her scheme. Ethan Gray is a curator at a national museum in Washington, D.C. . . . 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, the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers. Their worlds are decades apart, yet Meko can’t resist the dark beauty he kidnapped during a raid. He has many battles to fight, but none more crucial than capturing Cesca’s heart forever.

Review: What a wonderfully written historical. The amazing attention to detail really made the story POP! Filled to the brim with heart stopping characters, a riveting plot and a love that spans time, this one will remain on my shelf for years to come and be revisited often :) I cringed, flinched, sighed and shed a tear. Any story that can do that has my vote all the way. Ms Diablo, yet again yet have given us, the readers, a story that just defies words. I look forward to seeing more from you in the future :)
