Phoebe promised her dying Cherokee grandmother she would hold onto the farm until she solved this riddle: “Take care of the land and the land will take care of you.” Seven years later she fights her former brother-in-law Jack for possession of her home near Oklahoma City. Just as she is ready to give up, Alex (a sexy and mysterious Native American martial artist) offers to help. Who is Alex and what is his connection to Jack? Why does Jack want the farm? Why has her grandmother’s ghost appeared after all these years? Instead of one riddle to solve, Phoebe now has a fistful of them.

“MUSK RAIN offers an intense tale of native Americans living in the modern world while
struggling to retain their ancestral values. The main character Phoebe is easy to identify
with. The love interest Alex is luscious, but harboring some darker elements. Paranormal
aspects are sprinkled throughout this intense tale, including a watchful ghost.” ~ reviewed
by Pat Gaines for Grandma’s Reading Corner [FIVE STARS]
“I loved this book! Officially, the genre is paranormal romance, but as far as I’m concerned it’s just plain fun. Sometimes explicit, but always sweetly done, the sex is HOT, a real turn-on. But the best thing about the book is the story. A plot line with fascinating, complicated characters and enough plot twists and surprises to keep even the most critical reader turning pages, MUSK RAIN delves into the Cherokee Indian heritage of the author with enough authenticity to make a reader want to learn more. It also touches on the martial arts and complicated family relationships. The book was written with love and a sensitive eye to the environment. Some of the descriptions make one wonder how the author can see the world with such clarity. Fast moving, always suspenseful, surprises around every corner. Definitely a five-star read!” ~ reviewed by Pat Kelley for Roserock Reviews [FIVE STARS]
“MUSK RAIN takes the reader on a wild ride through situations that occur through the illegal dealings of one man’s greed for power. Phoebe has never fully trusted the decisions she has made but with Alex’s help, she is finally able to understand that any judgments she makes for herself are hers alone. I like the story for the strong characters and subtle romance.” ~ reviewed by Sheryl for CoffeeTime Romance [FIVE STARS]
“MUSK RAIN is a hypnotic page-turner with paranormal elements, an incredibly sexy hero, and a villain who personifies modern-day evil.” ~ reviewed by Stacy Colonna for Parchment Symbols
“MUSK RAIN is one story readers are bound to love!” ~ reviewed by Elena Channing for Escape to Romance [FIVE STARS]
“Ms. Branson has written a beautifully moving novel. MUSK RAIN is full of complex characters that draw you into their world. It even has a lovable ghost who happens to smell of gingersnaps. Definitely a five star read.” ~ reviewed by Mystic Visions Reviews [FIVE STARS]
“MUSK RAIN is a blend of wonderfully depicted characters with a traditionally Native American background. Branson’s knowledge of Native American mysticism and culture was very enlightening. The secondary characters helped carry the story along and added genuine depth to the author’s style. While Phoebe is very easy to identify and sympathize with, Alex is bound to leave readers breathless with pulses racing! Branson has shown exceptional talent for storytelling, enmeshing spirituality and suspense so well in a tale about a woman’s fight to defy the odds and emerge victorious. The sensuality and sexual tension are practically sizzling and bound to keep the pages turning rapidly! I’d recommend this book to all fans of Ms. Branson’s. This is one story readers are bound to love!” ~ reviewed by Midnight Scribe Reviews [FIVE STARS]
“Drawing deeply from the well of her knowledge of Native American mysticism, Terri Branson takes the reader of MUSK RAIN on a journey in which a spiritual tryst by a waterfall never seen with physical eyes is as real as a lazy summer afternoon on the banks of a farm pond.” ~ reviewed by Modean Moon, author of A LITTLE PEACE AND QUIET
“MUSK RAIN by Terri Branson is full of wonderful things: good characters, an interesting plot, psychic phenomena, and insight into Native American life today. Not to mention the sexiest psychic phenomena I ever read! I highly recommend this sensuous, well-written book.” ~ June Calvin, author of THE LAST LEPRECHAUN
“What do mixed-blood Cherokees, martial artists, shady oil-men, and ghosts have in common in modern-day Oklahoma City? Read MUSK RAIN and find out! Although presented as a paranormal romance, MUSK RAIN is a sexy and suspenseful read for men and women alike.” ~ reviewed by Chaos Arts Reviews [FIVE STARS]
“It was very hard to put down this book.” ~ reviewed by Mary Marvel [FIVE STARS]
