The sudden reappearance of golden-haired, leggy Honor Bartholomew forces Johnny Starhawk to confront the betrayals and passions of a past he’s determined to leave behind
In Night of the Panther, the second installment of Suzanne Forster’s Stealth Commandos trilogy, world-renowned criminal lawyer Johnny Starhawk thought he had forgotten Honor Bartholomew. Honor - the only daughter of a wealthy mining family, and Johnny, a motherless Apache - were once best friends from opposite sides of the tracks. But after a bitter betrayal, Johnny did everything he could to erase the memory of her.
Years later, a lawsuit threatens the White Mountain Reservation, and Johnny’s estranged grandfather begs Honor to bring Johnny back to defend his heritage. When she confronts Starhawk, resorting to womanly charms to reawaken his desire, he can’t deny the potency of his love for her. His feelings have always plagued him, no matter how fervently he sought to banish them. Honor, desperate for his forgiveness, haunts him in her determination to bring him back to White Mountain.
I could relate to the story of Honor and Johnny - I think thats why I liked it. Johnny is a Native American and Honor is American of Irish decent. They have to deal with family prejudices, loyalty, and love. I have close friends who are Native Amerian so I understood many of the customs. Like book one this book is a nice simple story with a happy ending. Got this book on sale so it was worth it to me. I think the narrator did a really good job too.
Also, although this is book two of the Stealth commandos you could definately read this on its own.
