New Release -- Seneca Surrender by Karen Kay Writing as Gen Bailey -- Giveaway!

A Warriors of the Iroquois Novel

Seneca warrior White Thunder discovers a near-drowned beautiful white woman by The-Lake-That-Turns-to-Rapids.  In the safety of a nearby cave, he revives her and cares for her, but she has no memory of past events—nor even her own name.

Gradually, Sarah’s memory returns, and she knows that another young woman, Marisa, whom she once traveled with, is in grave danger. Only Sarah holds the key to saving them from an evil man who holds the power of life and death over both women.

Honor-bound by his oath to his wife, Wild Mint, who was murdered fifteen years earlier, White Thunder is torn. How can he help Sarah when he must finish his sworn mission to find Wild Mint’s killer?

With the French and Indian War raging around them, White Thunder and Sarah fall in love against all odds—but will they survive to share the life they’ve hoped for together?

EXCERPT

     Again, Sarah’s heart jumped into her throat.
     Meanwhile, the canoe had picked up speed, heading toward the waterfall at a deadly pace. Marisa was still leaning back into Sarah’s arms, and Sarah instinctively tightened her hold on her friend. There was no changing course now. The speed of the water had them within its grip.
     Sarah threw a look over her shoulder. Even now, the enemy was almost upon them.
     Truly it was a test. Which would come first, the watery death on the rapids, or at the sure hand of the Ottawas?

    1. Hi Sarah! I remember as a child seeing Niagara Falls and feeling scared by it. Recently my husband and I went there, and I didn't have quite that same feeling. : ) There are two books in this series. Thanks so much for your hearty welcome!
