With her seventeen-year-old hormones running amok and propriety and good sense consequently abandoned, Lacey Longbaugh heads into the Oklahoma Territory of the 1860s and finds dangerous romance with part-Cherokee Ridge Chekote.
A PASSION BEYOND HER WILDEST DREAMS ...
At seventeen, beautiful Lacey Longbaugh had a child's adventurous spirit --- and a woman's sensuous yearnings, and as the deadly tides of civil war swept across the vast Oklahoma territory, she burned for the one man who could set free her imprisoned desires: the handsome part-Cherokee, Ridge Chekote.
He was as bold and as stirring as an Indian battle cry --- and in his bronzed, muscular arms Lacey discovered true ecstasy. But amid the flames of conflict, Ridge would face his most bitter challenge --- a vengeful and dangerous rival who would fight to the death to possess the woman who tamed the warrior's heart.
