Tamara Dobbs lives on her friendís ranch because it is convenient and allows her access to four cowboys when she needs them.  When her friend Savannah gets married, Tamara finds herself at odds with her life and unsure of emotions.  Pondering these feelings Tamara runs from her emotions and lands straight into the arms of newly hired Dakota Blackhawk.  Assuming her perfected attitude of blatant sexuality, Tamara does what she does best; she hides her vulnerability behind attitude.  Only this time it doesnít work and she finds herself unable to stop herself from caring for this quiet, enigmatic man.

Dakota Blackhawk canít believe the Great Spirit gifted him with such a woman.  Not only did he not have to look for his spirit mate, but she literally runs into him without him having to even look for her.  Itís too bad that she hides her true self behind lewd innuendoes.  Dakota knows that Tamara is meant to be his, so he sets out to seduce the vulnerable beauty.  It is going to take a lot of time and patience to gentle this filly and Dakota plans on relishing every single minute.

I have been waiting on Tamaraís Spirit ever since reading Savannahís Vision.  Nothing prepared me for the intensely emotional journey I would be undertaking while reading Tamaraís story.  A lifetime of hurt made her the woman she is today, but I loved watching Dakota get past the barriers to the warm, caring woman beneath. 

Tamaraís Spirit is truly a good read.  I found myself carried away and couldnít put it down. It was just that perfect.  Nicole Austin has a winner on her hands with Tamaraís Spirit and I, for one, am glad to have read it.
