The Black Hills, 1876
It was a land where a man could ride for days without seeing anything but fragrant pines, an occasional deer, or a lone eagle soaring in the limitless blue sky…a land where the Indian still roamed wild and free…an land that drew together two lovers to embrace a passionate destiny neither could have foreseen.
Accustomed to the ways of the white man, he returned to his tribe in search of a vision quest, to share with his people the glory and heartache of the last golden days before the Battle of the Little Big Horn, and to find the beautiful woman who haunted his dreams.
Sheltered and innocent, she shared every civilized woman’s fear of the Indian, until she was kidnapped by the darkly handsome Cheyenne. Slowly, her disdain changed to desire beneath his hard, bronzed body, until she would make any sacrifice to keep him by her side forever. [from back cover]
