Prairie Fire by Terri Branson is a compelling paranormal historical romance. In 1893, Chloe Talley-Marsh travels to the newly formed Lincoln County. She is returning home to stay with her brother after the premature death of her husband, leaving her a bereft young widow. Part Cherokee and part white, Chloe and her brother, Joe, walk a dangerous path as it was illegal at the time for American Indians to own land. Upon her arrival in Lincoln, Chloe is met not by her brother, but a neighboring rancher, Max McKee. It is lust at first sight for these two, but both are harboring secrets that could either make or break their relationship. Thrown into the mix is a series of inexplicable fires devastating the county. Can Max win over the headstrong Chloe and will Chloe be able to accept Max completely, secrets and all?
Miss Branson does an exceptional job of capturing the time period as well as realistically portraying the characters. The added paranormal aspect of an old American Indian ghost made the story even more interesting. Branson has done her research and that is to be admired. I found myself relating to Chloe’s desires to escape the constraints of her gender and her need to travel to places unknown. I was rooting for Max, though, the minute that he brought Chloe back to his ranch - as if he needed any help! Prairie Fire is a very well-written story, giving just the right dose of steamy romance. Miss Branson has woven together the perfect read for a lazy weekend at home.
