Handsome, strong, and just a little bit dangerous, half-Comanche Chase Wolf is used to getting what he wants. So when he sees Franny --- a golden-haired angel with deep green eyes, delicate features, and the sweetest smile --- he sets out to make her his. But far from the innocent she seems, Franny is the local "unfortunate," who services men above the Lucky Nugget salon. The shocking truth sends Chase reeling.
Long ago, circumstance forced Franny to make a terrible choice in order to provide for those she holds dearest. Now she lives a secret double life --- respectable in one world, shunned in another --- always fearful of discovery, forever marked by shame.
But Chase's love for Franny is persistent and patient and knows no bounds. He offers her a life she longs to claim but believes she can't possibly deserve. Franny tries to resist Chase, but he won't listen to reason, and he won't stop trying until her defences have fallen, her heart is healed, and their love has triumphed.
This was a lovely ending to the Comanche series by Catherine Anderson. Each character was heartfelt and by the end I felt a little emotionally rung out, there were just so many different feelings in this book. And while I didn’t quite enjoy Chase’s story as much as I loved Indigo’s, Comanche Magic kept me interested from start to finish. This book doesn’t have the typical damsel in distress scenario, and I think that’s what makes it so unique. There were no “bad” guys to this story, and only secrets had the power to destroy these characters.
Franny was an amazing heroine; she was definitely NOT your average woman in the late 1800’s. Forced into a world that is shunned and abhorred by “polite” society, Franny has little hope of finding happiness for herself. But when Chase Wolf sees her for the first time he cannot believe that Franny is the upstairs girl from the local saloon. With love and patience Chase will prove to Franny that she is a woman worth loving, but it’s up to Franny to believe the truth behind his words and actions.
