    Madrid Arrende is a young woman of Mexican descent who has inherited her mother s abilities to communicate with the dead She s beautiful and feisty, set to inherit the large prosperous ranch which her father has built up from nothing She is engaged to marry a weak and pasty town boy, but has known love and lust in the past, thanks to a rugged cowboy named Deacon Bannister A woman with her fire and her future needs a Deacon Bannister by her side we all know this But how will they come togeth Madrid Arrende is a young woman of Mexican descent who has inherited her mother s abilities to communicate with the dead She s beautiful and feisty, set to inherit the large prosperous ranch which her father has built up from nothing She is engaged to marry a weak and pasty town boy, but has known love and lust in the past, thanks to a rugged cowboy named Deacon Bannister A woman with her fire and her future needs a Deacon Bannister by her side we all know this But how will they come together Chasing the Dead gave me everything I have come to expect from a good western romance strong, likeable heroines, desert sunsets and palpable settings I could lose myself in, and Most Important Of All, that dreamy lustable male character Deacon is everything a western hero should be strong, manly, outdoorsy he breaks horses , rugged, stubborn, insanely handsome, and ever so swoonfully dedicated to the one love of his life Of course, in real life, who could live with a man like this BUT, that s why we have book boyfriends They stay in their books where they belong, forever hot, twenty something, and forever the ardent lover Now for the rest of the story I was a little unsure of the communicating with spirits bit, but this was very well done The spirits were sit within the context of Native American beliefs I am far from an expert in this culture, but knowing Ms Diablo, she will have done her background research and traditional customs will have been drawn on The Spanish certainly was spot on, except for one instance where it stood out like a sore thumb and then I realised that a gringo was speaking, and it made me laugh instead.I loved that the main character came from a Mexican background I liked reading about a heroine whose skin was not alabaster She spoke a lot of Spanish and her home had a very strong Catholic influence It was very substantial, and believable There were other likeable characters too Deacon s brother and the Apache girl who Madrid becomes friends with are both strong, three dimensional characters with their own back stories and their own motivations The story arc is nicely done, and I would expect nothing less from Ms Diablo Her character introduction is splendid, and the story builds with the usual crests to the climax, and a well earned happily ever after.All in all, there is very little that is new here, which fans of this genre will be relieved to hear Ms Diablo has kept the romance bones in the usual order ankle connected to shin then knee etc etc and fleshed them out with an Apache Mexican Cowboy overlay Which I really like The paranormal thread sews all three together very nicely, and not too weirdly, which I can t handle I m not much into zombies and everyone turning into werewolves The finished story is the one we all demand of love, lust, romance, strength and individuality whilst also giving us a beautiful underlying story of ethnic co existence and co dependence And that s the story I really appreciated here

    What a fantastically original plot and story idea If you like westerns, American history, the native American Indians or just want a read with some seriously sexy Bannister boys cowboys , well then this one is for you.The plot moved along at a cracking pace, it kept me interested and had plenty of action There are bigger plot arcs that aren t really finished in this one, which gives Keta plenty of opportunity to bring these boys and girls back forI loved the female characters, Maddie What a fantastically original plot and story idea If you like westerns, American history, the native American Indians or just want a read with some seriously sexy Bannister boys cowboys , well then this one is for you.The plot moved along at a cracking pace, it kept me interested and had plenty of action There are bigger plot arcs that aren t really finished in this one, which gives Keta plenty of opportunity to bring these boys and girls back forI loved the female characters, Maddie and Sacheen are headstrong and know themselves well It was a lovely thing to see strong women in a romance novel with such strong males.The mixing of Indian folklore beliefs with Mexican and Christian beliefs worked really well Given the setting, and the little Indian translation list at the start I was initially concerned that there d be too much in Indian or Mexican and I d miss plot points because I don t speak read either Thankfully, Keta took care of me, and the different languages ended up giving the story a lovely exotic spice, without being too much There wasn t any point where I didn t understand what was going on.There were a couple of points that bothered me hence the 3.5 4 star rating I disliked how easily it was for Uday to lure Sacheen away from the rest of them it seemed a little too convenient that Maddie knew the answers but it d slipped her mind to share with someone else , and it was a little rushed at the ending Minor things really, just the last rough edges of an otherwise enjoyable read The manuscript needed another once over, to catch some minor typos, but it was mostly really well written.I would recommend it for romance lovers, paranormal fans and general readers who are interested in an engaging plot, strong characters and action with a fantastic setting.I received this book free of charge from the author in return for an honest review

    I wish I could say that I was surprised by this book, but I m not Although I have only read one other book by this author I have to come to realize that at a time when most authors leave too much to the reader s imagination and power of assumption when it comes to stories, Diablo takes the time to make sure the reader fully understands the how and why of every character and their motivation Never once did I have that ever present WTF moment where I wondered what the characters could possibly I wish I could say that I was surprised by this book, but I m not Although I have only read one other book by this author I have to come to realize that at a time when most authors leave too much to the reader s imagination and power of assumption when it comes to stories, Diablo takes the time to make sure the reader fully understands the how and why of every character and their motivation Never once did I have that ever present WTF moment where I wondered what the characters could possibly be thinking Although far from a short story, I found myself unable to put this novel down once I got started I found it engaging and entertaining With never a dull moment, I would definitely recommend it to anyone
