The powerful sensuality of Creed Sixkiller makes Raney's heart race ... the same as it did three years ago when he proposed to her. But she refused him then, for her family was too finely bred to allow her to marry an Indian. Now, to save her brother who has escaped from prison, Raney must stick close to the proud, handsome half-breed Cherokee ... no matter how scandalous it will be for them to travel alone together ... no matter how much she aches for his touch.
Creed never wants to see Raney Childress again, not after she told him he wasn't good enough to live in her world. But he is determined to put her baby brother back in jail where he belongs, and Raney is not letting Creed out of her sight. Her delicate beauty and gentility only bring back the searing memories of their hopeless romance, but as he leads them both down a dangerous path, Creed is beginning to realize that the greatest peril of all is a love that never truly vanished ... and a wild desire that could not be tamed.
