Eagle’s work is often singled out by book reviewers for its exceptional quality and appeal. THE NIGHT REMEMBERS was a Chicago Tribune Notable Book. SUNRISE SONG, THE NIGHT REMEMBERS, THE LAST TRUE COWBOY, and WHAT THE HEART KNOWS made the Library Journal “Five Best Romances of the Year” list. BookPage listed WHAT THE HEART KNOWS among its “Top Six Romance Picks” for 1999. THE LAST GOOD MAN was a finalist for the 2000 Minnesota Book Award for Popular Fiction–the only Romance so honored thus far.
