Kudos to Ms. Diablo for penning such an impassioned story.Classical Romance Reviews – 4.5 StarsDiablo’s Where The Rain Is Made is a must-read for anyone interested in native history, as well as anyone looking for a nice, deep romance that never gets too heavy despite some intense moments of fighting for survival. I rarely enjoy time travels but this one came off as thoroughly believable and is on my recommended list. I will be looking for other books by this author.Seriously Reviewed – What a wonderfully written historical. The amazing attention to detail really made the story POP! Filled to the brim with heart stopping characters, a riveting plot and a love that spans time, this one will remain on myshelffor years to come and be revisited often.
My Review: First of all, if you peek at the labels, you will see I've reviewed a number of Keta Diablo books. Go aheadand see. ☺ Anyway, I was happy to see a longer book from her. This one definitely did not disappoint.
Keta Diablo sealed my love of m/m erotic novels and now has me thinking time travel in books isn't so bad after all. Of course, being the history "buff" that I am, I enjoyed the Dog Soldier part of the book and the accuracy of it. So, you have time travel, Dog Soldiers and --just when you thought that was good enough -- throw in an immortal. Want to know who? You'll have to read the book.
The realism was wonderful, people were portrayed as we all are in life, both good and bad depending on the situation that confronts us. The balance between action and romance is perfect, with neither overtaking where the story is going, but rather working on getting it there together.
Pick up this one, you don't want to miss it. Make sure you have a free evening, because you'll want to finish the while book before sitting it back down.

About the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers
“They were the badest of the bad in their day and feared by all.”
One of the most important castes of the Cheyenne Indians was that of the Dogmen; warriors were united into a society which had grown so strong in numbers that it controlled a vast majority of the Cheyenne Nation. The Dogmen served as peacekeepers during many conflicts, defending tribes to whom they had been assigned. The society of the Dogmen eventually grew so strong in numbers that it became a band by itself, occupying the plate of Nebraska as their main territory. Over the years, the Dogmen had captured many of their enemies, which they used as slaves. The Dogmen also performed many ceremonies and dances, It is believed that the Dogmen were responsible for nearly six hundred songs and legends.
Their duty was to stay behind and cover the retreat of whole Tribe, which they did better than any other castes of any Tribe or Nation. That’s why the US Cavalry called them Dog Soldiers, in respect for them and not too keen about have to face them. A US general called them the best Light Cavalryhe’d ever seen and studied in all of history. This was a caste with inferior weapons and numbers against the cavalry and yet, The Cheyenne Dog Soldiers were a very formidable opponent.

Summary from GoodReads: Tough PI, Frank McGuire, attempts to help the FBI locate three abducted children from a small town in West Virginia. While channeling his inner spirit for assistance, he mistakenly calls forth a ghost. As Frank races against time to locate the missing girls, he receives help from the most unlikely of sources. To complicate matters, Rand has decided its time Frank commit to their relationship -- or run the risk of Rand being gone when he returns.
My Review: Another great book that makes me think Sixth Sense but better. Frank's ability to communicate with the dead continues in book three to help him get his bad guy.
Rand and Frank are still having their issues, but many of you that have read the first two books will be happy to know that Frank is coming around, in his own way. While I never hated Frank, he wasn't my number one favorite character. He's almost likable by the end of this book. Like all of us, Frank's life is moving forward whether he wants it to or not and he has to accept and change along with it. He does.
This is a quick read, so of course, things move along well. Why not treat yourself to all three for a weekend in?
