HaBO-thon: Tohav, the Native American

Donna wrote in with this HaBO request, but I’m not sure she’s remembering the hero’s name correctly.

Okay so about a year ago i read a novel, and i’m pretty sure it was old-ish
as i found it in my freinds mother’s collection. i absolutly cannot for the
life of me remember the title of it all i know is that i loved it and it was
the first romance novel i had ever read.I do remember the plotline though as
well as the leading man’s name if you could help me that would be great.

its a historical romance set during the expansion into the west. and
the guys name is “Tohav” and he’s native american i’m not sure if there
is an e at the end or not.

the main woman in the story is 19ish and white
and was forced to marry this guy who moves her out west,during one scene she
passes out in the sun and Tohav rescues her and they start a love affair a
bit later on, she gets pregnant with her husbands child and Tohav gets shot
by some soldiers.

she thinks he’s dead but it turns out that he wasn’t
dead at all she just doesnt know that yet. during the winter,while tohav is
still supposed to be dead her husband dies and a while later she finds out
tohav isnt dead and they ride off into the sunset.please help me.

I bet there’s a sequel, with his brother, Tohold, right? Does he get together with Cherish? Seriously, anyone remember this one? Sounds like a very old novel.

    Wow. It really is Tohave. Is this a legit NA name, or did Bittner pull it out of her ass?

    …Who am I kidding. Proper research? Pssh.

    “Tohave” is not actually all that farfetched an NA name; it’s worth noting that “Mohave” is recognized as an alternate spelling for “Mojave”, referring both to the desert and to a tribal group of that region.  (Spelling of Indian names is extremely flexible, in part because very few of the Native American languages existed in written form prior to European contact, and partly because there wasn’t a lot of consistency in the transliteration when the languages were put into written forms.)

    Well, if it was a name-the-white-idiots can pronounce kind of name, Tohave makes as much sense as anything I have seen. Many of the older black* people I work with also have this type of name as a second name (Prince, Granny, etc.). Most of the younger black people in the office have them too, but they rarely use them. Which is a bit of a no-brainer as:
    – Rejecting a name that was given to you to appease an oppressive regime is a pretty normal reaction. 
    – If you had to choose between using Nothemba or Granny, you wouldn’t take long to make up your mind either.

    *I use the word black because this is the politically correct word in South Africa. I know that the American tendency is to use the terms Person of Color or African American. Neither of these apply. In South Africa the term Person of Color would apply to a totally different racial and cultural group than the term black would. As for as calling a black South African African, well it is both redundant and confusing because all South Africans are African.
