BARNES AND NOBLE REVIEWS,
"OUT OF THIS WORLD" by
Alzi Clanton, A reviewer and
Navajo Heat is the story of a
couple, both over 50, that come
together after years of dedication to
careers to find that life can begin
again and again. From the
movement you open the book, you
are taken on an adventure that
spans over many settings, beliefs,
and life experiences. The author
has taken her time to research
about what she has written. This
reflects in the verbiage. An exciting,
sexy adventure. This book will leave
you wanting more.
"Navajo Heat is hot, hot, hot!"
Carole Levine, the editor of
NativeVue online, 11/03/2006:
How can you resist? A
hotter-than-hell former Navy Seal
and sultry reverend steaming up the
dry desert. Plenty of romance,
intrigue and cultural authenticity to
keep you riveted in this well-crafted
drama based on the Navajo Nation.
Author Madrid-Null has done her
homework--the Dine' references
and phrases she employs
throughout are dead-on and never
exploitative. Also refreshing is the
fact that both hotties
are...Omigod...over the age of 50!
An age that popular culture typically
eschews or ignores completely.
There's no doubt Madrid-Null knows
how to weave a story and yeah, the
lovin' is pretty durn' good too.
Would make a terrific film...:)
"Navajo Heat is a fabulous read"
by Mia McDonald, an avid
From the first page Navajo Heat
grabs your attention and keeps it.
You begin to care about the
characters from the very beginning.
Being an avid reader there are
usually one or two parts in any book
that loses my attention. Not so with
Navajo Heat, the love story is
amazing, the emotions jumping off
the pages, the sensuality is
amazing, culminating in some of the
hottest loves scenes i've read. Mary
Helen Madrid-Null writes with such
respect and love for the Navajo
culture and Customs, she truly is
one of todays most gifted writers. I
highly recommend this book, it
really is a fabulous read!
Exhilarating, October 15, 2006
By J. Clegg -
This book is absolutely amazing!
Sensual, sexy, spiritual. Mary Helen
takes you places you have longed
for with a command of the English
language that will take your breath
away. She takes her experiences
as a critical care nurse and critical
incident stress specialist and
applies them in a way few people
can. The characters literally leap out
of the pages and into your mind. If
you are a fan of Tony Hillerrman,
you will definitely become a fan of
Mary Helen's. Your journey will take
you where few others have dared to
"Desert Mystery, Adventure and
Romance Heat Up" August 24,
By Katherine Rosengren
"Wings n Things" (So.
California, USA) -
Navajo Heat grabbed me right
away. Instantly lost in the story,
concurrently watching my own
mental films of places I have have
been blessed to visit too.Nothing
like a novel like this based in
Mary Helen is an exceptional writer,
teacher and healer. Her genius
carries one across mesa's, desert
floors, vast expanses of this unique
geography in rapid fire pace.
Sprinkling these magical lands with
Native Tales, down and dirty real
life ordeals, plus humor.
The author brings her characters
alive as Native, First Nation,
Peoples interact with Dr. T., her
friends and colleagues, in this fast
paced edgy novel.
A master story teller, she inserts
factual procedural police work,
great forensics, shoot 'em up
action, on and off horse back,
sizzling romance and more, are
delivered one great book.
The reader treks along with Dr. T
and the characters inner dialog, on
everything from types of firearms
used and why,rescue ops, GSWs to
reality based visits into the morgue.
Not to worry, M.H.Madrid-Null is an
artist when it comes to breaking
high tension at critical intervals. At
just the right moment she offers
brief breaths of relief, with humor
and bits light hearted tender prose.
Drawing upon her many areas of
knowledge, Ms. Madrid-Null pulls
the reader in fast.
Buckle your seat belts, as you are
off and racing with Navajo Heat's
action plus information packed
I look forward to a series from this

"Navajo Heat is intense",
October 29, 2006 by Mia
McDonald (Enumclaw, Wa USA)
I am an avid reader and I haven't
read a book that grabbed my
attention so quickly. From the first
page you begin to feel like you've
known the characters personally.
You feel their joys, their sorrows,
their deep abiding love for one
another, the sexual tension that
culminates in some of the most
sensual love scenes I've read. Mary
Helen Madrid-Null writes these
characters from her heart. You
begin to feel as though you're a part
of the story as it leaps from the
pages to pull you in. Mary Helen
Madrid-Null is truly a gifted writer,
knowledgeable and sensitive to the
Navajo culture and it's customs.
Using her own past experiences in
critical care, and end of life issues,
as well as being a Death Specialist
herself, she uses these
experiences to bring the story of
Ben and Theresa to life, making
both the characters and story 3
dimensional instead of just
characters on a page. I am truly
excited to see what the next stage
will be for these characters as they
continue on the path that has been
destined for them.
