When Marisa Lacoste goes to the Cascades she never expects to end up running for her life. Betrayed. Terrified. Her pursuers close behind, she scrambles along a canyon wall until she's sent hurtling downward.
Left to die, she regains consciousness to find herself in a cave with a warrior whose every touch and glance signals that she belongs to him. Ukiah cares for her. Makes love to her. Conquers her with pleasure. But when a decision on her part puts Marisa back in danger, he's forced to act, to test her courage and the strength of their new relationship by showing himself for what he is -- a creation of magic and belief whose spirit takes flight in the storm.
