Soon the pair is involved in a cause that forces Kole back intothe spotlight -- and challenges Heather's belief that Kole shouldreturn to the public eye. They travel from the isolation ofMinnesota to the bright lights of Los Angeles...and to a placewhere they must each face the truth about their love.

You Never Can Tell is a story you will never forget.

Review by Booklist Review

Kole Kills Crow, the fugitive in The Last Good Man (2000), had been hiding out physically and emotionally on a remote Indian reservation in Minnesota when writer Heather Reardon comes looking for him. Set up for a murder in prison where he was serving time for his role in Native American protests, he escaped before new charges could be brought against him and ever since has been distancing himself from his causes and his family. Heather, who has admired Kole since she was a teenager, now wants to tell his story to publicize the plight of his people. Kole is reluctant to talk about himself, but her idealism is reminiscent of his own and the two develop an attraction that is cemented when they embark on a cross-country journey to California that revives the activist spirit in the Native American community and forces Kole to remember his commitments and his past. Eagle's moving story sensitively combines romance with recognition of the complex challenges Native Americans face. --Patty Engelmann

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Kole Kills Crow is a perfect romance hero brooding, dangerous, "other" cast in the same mold as a gypsy from the wild moors, or a rogue who is no longer received in Charleston. Kills Crow is a hero of the Native American movement, a terrorist according to the law and possibly a murderer. Now he lives like a fugitive, holed up in a remote cabin, until he is discovered by journalist Heather Reardon. Sexy and feral as his wolf-dog, he possesses an unpredictable cruel streak balanced by a dash of tenderness and sensitivity he is also a maker of fine, highly prized flutes. Once Heather locates him in a honky-tonk, she inveigles him into dancing with her and then convinces him to let her into his life so she can tell his story. "This would be more than an interview. She believed him to be one of a rare breed, maybe even a dying breed of men... a true champion of the people." Thus begins a long tease. There is much inane, double-entendre conversation as the two move inevitably through mistrust to lust to true love. Along the way, there are political issues to settle, and a quest for fairness for Native Americans leads to an intense climax under the Hollywood sign above Los Angeles. Eagle (What the Heart Knows; The Last Good Man) won't disappoint her fans with this spicy, fast-paced tale. (Aug.) Forecast: With more than 35 books to her credit and several awards for her romances, Eagle has a solid following. The political aspect of her latest doesn't overshadow the romance and may increase her readership. National print advertising, a four-city author tour and a teaser chapter in the paperback of The Last Good Man are planned. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Review by Library Journal Review

When freelance journalist Heather Reardon heads for the wilds of northern Minnesota in search of the legendary Kole Kills Crow, a Native American activist and fugitive who has purposely dropped out of sight, she has more than just a journalistic interest that his story be told. Not only is he one of her heroes from way back but he is also the father of her seven-year-old goddaughter, whom he will never see unless he deals with his violent and dangerous past. But it isn't until Kole sees a revealing video clip that he reluctantly realizes that he must face his demons if he ever is going to be free. Politics, murder, and betrayal are all part of this sensual, involving spin-off of The Last Good Man (Avon, 2000), which nicely blends romance and activism. Noted for her especially well-drawn heroes and sensitive treatment of Native American issues, Eagle is a RITA-award winning writer and lives in the Minneapolis area. (c) Copyright 2010.
