Book 7 of 7 in the Navajo Family Blessings Series. Cheryl Reavis takes her time with this book, allowing us to get to know Bugs very well. The book is mostly in his POV - which is unique in romantic fiction. Kate remains distant through most of the story because of this, but it's believable since she's a tough woman trying to keep up a strong front to deal with the pain of her past.

Cheryl Reavis is an award-winning short story and romance author who also writes under the name of Cinda Richards, describes herself as a late bloomer who played in her first piano recital at the tender age of thirty. We had to line up by height–I was the third smallest kid, she says.


Knee-deep in her forties, attorney Lillian Slinger long ago left her Navajo ways behind. And tribal lawman Johnny Becenti despised her for it. So why had their People selected her to cajole Johnny out of his sudden self-exile? All she could do was bother him senseless! But aggravation soon sparked passion. And the lifelong warriors made love. But could they make peace? For they'd already made a baby…

And Coyote howled with glee!

FAMILY BLESSINGS. One big family. One proud People. Beset by Earth's "Trickster"—but blessed by love!

This as all cheryl Reavis books was wonderful. She has a extraordinary talent and I am thankful she has shared it with us.
Loved the book and it arrived quickly and in good shape. Thanks very much. I highly recommend the seller as I was pleased.
Another Reavis hero to love. This story was great. I enjoyed the whole thing. I also learned a lot about the Navajo people. It was very entertaining. I love Reavis heroes. They are always strong, no-nonsense men but gentle and caring. This one was no different. The heroines are always strong independent women with a spine and a brain!

In this case, the heroine leaves the reservation to live in the white man's world. She is a successful lawyer and living what she feels is the good life. However, when she gets dumped by her current love interest she needs some place to hide. The hero's mother has asked her to intervene with her son because he has slipped into a deep depression because of the death of his wife and she fears for his life. These two do not get along and seem to fight over everything and nothing. But, she goes to check on him and to hide at the same time. She discovers him deathly ill and she takes over. he still fights her.

There is a lot to this story. It is interesting how not communicating leads to so many misunderstandings. But there is a HEA and I recommend this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
From the back of the novel: "Knee-deep in her forties, attorney Lillian Singer long ago left her Navaho ways behind. And tribal lawman Johnny Becenti despised her for it. So why had their People selected her to cajole Johnny out of his sudden self-exile? All she could do was bother him senseless! But aggravation soon sparked passion. . ."

Poor Lillian Singer! In her forties and secure in her career and chosen life, suddenly her world is completely overturned and she finds herself in a relationship with a man she has butted heads with all her adult life--and pregnant. Everything she thought she knew is no longer true. What's a clear-headed career-focused woman to do? Poor Johnny Becenti! He's Lillian's brother's boss on the police force, and her brother wants to know Becenti's intentions toward his sister--but how is Johnny supposed to know what his intentions are when his life seems like one big ambush and he has never thought of Lillian "that way"? He is a cop and she is a lawyer and they have been on opposite ends of a case; she is wholly non-traditional and he has dedicated his life to the People. How can any "intention" he may have make sense?

Cheryl Reavis is one of my favorite romance authors and this novel is one of my favorite books. The romance of Lillian and Johnny is complicated by their past loves, their careers, their pride, and their differing views of how best to negotiate their Navaho heritage in a white-dominated world. All this "baggage" adds dimension to these characters and their conflict, moving this novel beyond the usual plot line of "boy-meets-girl, boy-and-girl have a 'misunderstanding', big kiss makes the 'misunderstanding' insignificant." No, nothing comes easy for Lillian and Johnny--except the lovemaking.

One of the pleasures of this book is the dialogue, which snaps and sparkles, especially between heroine and hero, but not just between them. Lillian and Johnny don't live in a vacuum. Their lives are interlaced with other people who have an opinion and a point of view that they are not hesitant to express. The main characters' interactions with these secondary characters are appealing and often amusing, adding texture to the story. Reavis is excellent at inserting light, dry wit into her tales. Reavis also know how to bring the tears.

This book is the third in Reavis's Family Blessings series and, in the end, is about what it takes to create a family and be part of a family and part of a larger context. There is some humor and some wisdom here, and a compelling story.
Mother to Be by Cheryl Reavis
Silhouette Special Edition # 1102 - May 1997

4 Stars! ~ Johnny Becenti is Captain of the Navajo Tribal Police. His wife has recently died after a very long illness, and Johnny decides to retreat to his family sheep ranch. He refuses to see anyone or to return to his home in Window Rock. Lillian Singer is a lawyer living off the reservation. She's known Johnny pretty much all their lives, and has clashed with him a time or two professionally. Johnny's always disapproved of her choice to be off the res, so she's surprised when her mother brings Johnny's mother to see her, to convince her to go to Johnny and talk sense in him. Lillian doesn't feel it's her place to interfere, until the night her long time white boyfriend dumps her for a prettier and younger woman. Then all Lillian can think to do is leave town, so she's off to save Johnny. When she arrives, he's ill with a terrible fever. Giving Johnny the help he needs, only brings him into her life. They had always irritated each other, now that irritation has become unwanted attraction. One thing leads to another and Lilian finds herself pregnant with Johnny's baby. But everything is so complicated. Johnny's wants marriage and life on the res; Lilian wants her career and life in the city; and Lilian's old boyfriend keeps popping up.

Another awesome story. Ms. Reavis knows just the right words to bring her characters to life. Both Johnny and Lilian have to face the paths their lives are on. Choosing to take the path together took courage and alot of soul searching.
