Hunter is a Seneca brave and a renown scout for the Virginia Militia. But a white-woman's betrayal sent him back to his Seneca ways, with a vow to never return.
Alanna Barclay lost her family in an Indian raid. When her cousin gives birth to a half-breed baby, then dies, Alanna faces a choice: turn her back on the motherless child or convince his Seneca father to claim the babe as his own.
Hunter wants nothing to do with the infant; a painful remainder of his white-mother's betrayal. But Alanna's compassion and bravery is seeping into Hunter's heart, forcing him to face a love he'd rather deny.

THE HEARTS OF LIBERTY, in series order
First thing, the man they show on the cover looks like he's a gramps, though that's not a bad thing, it just doesn't fit the description in the book. Second, the book is entirely too long, especially in Part#1. Third, the love developed between characters was not believable. Fourth, the book was too depressing and there wasn't a good balance of emotions for the reader to experience. And finally, most of the characters were not even worth liking. I gave it 2 stars because it was just good enough for me to completely read to the end.
A Worthwhile Read.
As I See It!
The curiosity of a young Virginian beauty, a casual flirtation gone wrong and subsequent tragedy, sent the once infatuated Hunter, proud Seneca brave and renowned scout for the Militia, back to his home - heartbroken, disillusioned and bitter. Would Alanna Barkley, seriously traumatized during a vicious attack by Indians on her home and family, succeed in uniting Hunter with his little son?
A roller coaster of strong emotions, misunderstandings and heroism, playing out with the French and Indian War of the mid-18th Century as background, causes one to reel, and to commit to a poignant love story.
'Savage Destiny' is a worthwhile read, and a fitting tribute to the writing and story-telling skills of its author.
As the Title says, pretty racist. Author obviously didn't make an effort to research the Seneca culture. Why is his name Hunter?? Besides this, the book drones on and needs to be made at least slightly more concise. Lastly the love story is not believable.
