Tamara's Spirit by Nicole Austin

Tamara’s Spirit by Nicole Austin releases on April 3rd from Samhain Publishing.


There’s nowhere to run and no place to hide from old wounds and demons for the vulnerable woman behind the bawdy attitude.

How ironic to be captured by an Indian when not one of the Shooting Star Ranch cowboys is available to race to her rescue.

City girl Tamara Dobbs lives on the ranch to be close to her friends and even closer to her gorgeous cowboys, but still she feels discontent, fragmented. From the minute she runs into the new guy—sexy, unflappable equestrian, Dakota Blackhawk—she runs from the intense emotions he evokes.

On first sight, Dakota knows nothing will stop him from claiming the brazen little princess as his own—heart, body, and spirit. He’ll accept nothing less. While he would gladly take on the fight for her, she must face her own battle to become whole. Taking her out of her element is the only way he can help the sexy, stubborn woman.

Tamara may survive the emotional roller coaster ride, but she still must conquer the ultimate challenge…forgetting what others want her to be and becoming true to herself.


This is a book about one woman's journey to heal her wounded spirit and set herself free from her horrific past, and the man who stands firmly beside her.

Tamara's and Dakota's story is absolutely beautiful. The scene where they finally make love is one of the best love scenes I've ever read, the prose is almost lyrical it's so beautiful. It is rich with details, emotionally intense, and you can feel the depth of commitment that is flowing between them.
Truly a sensual delight.
Personally, I think this is Ms. Austin's best book to date.
