Twelve years ago, Erin O'Neill had left South Dakota and Hunter Brave Wolf. Though she loved him, she had seen no future for them, but her heart had never been the same.
The death of her sister under mysterious circumstances brought her back to the reservation, determined to find out the truth. Beneath the western sky, surrounded by hills that kept the secrets of the ages, she found the truth she sought along with one she might have preferred not to face: no matter who far she ran, she would never truly leave Hunter behind. She had been his woman once - and would be for all time.
