Description: Snapping Turtle knew Makisa would be his wife the first time he saw her. His only problem was, how could he make the daughter of a Shaman fall in love with a willing captive amongst her people? Although promised to another, Makisa felt the pull of her heartstrings when she first saw Snapping Turtle. It didn't matter if he was a captive, or a free man, he made her feel differently than she had ever felt before. When her promised husband is banished because of his treatment of her, she turns to Snapping Turtle for love and security. With their marriage, and the child that is coming with the changing color of the leaves, one more obstacle stands in the way of their happiness. With the return of the buffalo, so will Makisa's brother, Atiko, and Snapping Turtle's brother, Hawk, return. Can their love stand the test of family loyalty? This is the Second in the historical romance/time travel series, following Birdsinger's Woman. The third book in the Series is Wildcat's Hunger. Each book may be read independently of the others in the series, and all three titles are currently available.

While Snapping Turtle's Honor stands alone and is a delight to read, the reader will be able to understand the story behind Snapping Turtle's captivity."--Penny, Fallen Angels Reviews
"We must have the Spirit Woman!" Hawk declared at the counsel meeting.
As usual, when his brother began ranting on something, Snapping Turtle quit listening. He wished the man from the village to their west had never come to them. If he had not come with stories of the woman from the future that gave life back to the dead, Hawk would not be so obsessed with having her.
Snapping Turtle knew why Hawk wanted the woman's power, but he did not approve. Hawk's daughter, Little Duck, was a beautiful, loving child, but she was different from the other children of the village. Snapping Turtle knew Hawk wanted the evil spirits driven from her body. In reality, Snapping Turtle wanted the child to remain the same. He loved her dearly, just as she was.
"We need to find a way to bring the Spirit Woman here for Hawk," Buffalo Calf said, making Snapping Turtle realize everyone but his brother's best friend and he had left the counsel.
"You know why he wants her here as well as I do. I fear if we bring her to our village, that Little Duck could get hurt."
