BOOK OF THE DAY - Lakota Princess by Karen Kay




 A love that defies the ocean. A secret deeper than blood.

Lakota Princess, Book 3

Driven from her home in England by hostile political forces, Estrela was little more than a girl when she came to be raised by a far western Lakota tribe. On the wide, sweeping plains she grew tall and strong, and won the love of a handsome warrior.

But on the eve of their marriage, she is torn away from her native family, torn from the man she loves, and forced to return to a place that feels more like a foreign country than her home. There she merely exists, haunted by her love’s sweet kisses and heated embrace, yearning for his unforgettable touch.

Black Bear has braved the ocean to find the woman whose beauty has captured his soul. But no sooner has he arrived in England than he is called upon to save her life. Who in their right mind would want to murder such a gentle spirit?

As Black Bear comes between her and death time after time, Estrela wishes they could both just disappear back to the plains, and bury the secret she has long hidden –- even from him. A secret from which only their love, truer than blood, can save them.

This is the 25th year Anniversary Edition of this book.

Warning: Sensuous romance that contains separated lovers who will let nothing come between them…not oceans, her mysterious past, or a murderer bent on destroying their future.

Have You Read - Never Close Your Heart by Monica F. Anderson?



All Faith Henry wanted was peace. She gave up almost everything to have it. She resigned from her position as mayor, filed for divorce, and sold her dream home, vowing no job or man would ever control her again. Ten years later, her self-made perfect life is changing directions without her consent. Her popular podcast is bringing unwanted attention from a superfan. Her millennial daughter, Sloane, has returned to the nest with an electronic ankle monitor, a gender-fluid child, a meek husband, and a bad attitude. And, worst of all, her almost perfect manfriend is fed up. Since she won’t marry him, he’s moving on. They’ve become good friends who never cross the line. She hates that line more than anything. 


Out of ideas, Faith drags her daughter to group counseling with the seasoned Saints at their church. Can their collective wisdom help this mother and daughter tear down the walls and open their hearts before it’s too late?







“So why are you here, Gina?” Sloane demanded. “You know I never wanted you here. None of us did.”


“I’m here because, despite your suspicions and our history, you’ve been kind like real Christians should be. And,” she turned to May Bell seated behind her, “I believe you were right about things happening for a reason. I needed these lessons more than Sloane. I don’t think someone could have befriended me if they wanted to, because I had put up so many walls.”


“Being vulnerable is necessary for being loved,” May Bell explained.


“Thank you, Gina.”


Faith removed the legal pad from her lap and put it in her purse.


“Unbelievable,” she muttered. She was preparing to leave.


May Bell said, “And that right there is your problem, my friend. Unforgiveness.”


In thirty years, Faith had not been angry with May Bell -- until she said that.


“Excuse me.”


“Did I stutter?” May Bell said. “Do you really think this counseling is only about Sloane? This is family counseling. Preston didn’t make your daughter like this by himself. You had a hand in it, too.”


Faith was fuming. Is she calling me on the carpet in front of er’body in behind this Gina woman? Oh, I am so leaving this church. I should’ve left after the divorce.


“Faith, all of you, listen to me. When two become one, they multiply.


Everything that occurs after that, addition, subtraction, or division goes back to the source.” She walked over to Faith. “Yes ma’am, I am calling you out, because you are a big girl and I know you can handle pressure. What I don’t know is whether you realize you haven’t forgiven Gina for what Preston did. You’ve heard Rev. Leroy preach about F-F-M numerous times. What does that stand for?”


As much as she longed to, Faith couldn’t ignore May Bell. “Forgive, forget, move on.”


“What we usually do is move on without forgiving, and most certainly without forgetting. I would not be doing my duty as your friend or First Lady if I ignored the bad example you are setting for Sloane.”


Faith looked around, expecting judgment from the Counsel. What she saw were looks of recognition and understanding. Even Sloane seemed to be listening empathetically. This heifer done made me part of the lesson, it dawned on Faith. Oh my, she’s good and she’s right. I’ve been carrying this resentment against Gina for a decade. I forgave Preston, but not the other woman.
