The Matawapit Family Series Book 4
by Maggie Blackbird
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
When two former enemies fall in love, family secrets threaten to destroy their fragile union and everything they hold dear.
With their extreme ideas about traditional Ojibway life, the radical Kabatay clan have made enemies in their fight to rid the reserve of Western culture and its religion. Disowned by her family for daring to love the church deacon’s eldest son, Jude, Raven Kabatay longs to put an end to the feud started by her mother, brother, and sisters against the Matawapits…people she’s come to think of as her own since Jude changed her life.
Jude Matawapit suffered a humiliating divorce after his wife left him for another man, but with Raven, he’s created a beautiful, new sanctuary after losing his previous one, and his new haven is everything he’s ever wanted for himself and his children. Only two things could destroy his pristine bliss: the secret he holds close to his chest, and the vengeance Raven’s family wants to exact on the Matawapits. A secret and vengeance that could cost the unlikely lovers their hard-won, much longed for happily ever after.
When the truck pulled up at the halfway house, Adam’s disgust threatened to spill over.
No woman could slam on the brakes like Bridget. He threw off his seat belt. “I didn’t
mean to make you pissed.”
“I’m not pissed.” She stared straight ahead.
Adam cracked open the door. She was going to let him go? Damn her. Promising
himself to use patience was a stupid idea. The woman was stubborn enough to wait out
the next coming of Jesus.
The twelve-step program, the anger management classes, his one-on-one counseling
all screamed at him to leave his desires in the hands of his higher power. Yeah right.
Creator had forgotten He’d shaped and breathed life into a woman a pack of mules
Welp, he could be stubborn, too. Adam shut the door.
