When Ethan Caine pulled the unconscious woman from the half-frozen creek, he had no idea that his world was about to explode. Dressed in quilled doeskin of Iroquois design, she was everything he feared, stirring up the dark secrets from his Indian fighting past. At the same time, she was everything he desired. But she was more Indian than white, and on the run for a murder she might have committed. He needed to know the truth. He needed to find it within himself to trust her.
Banished by the Seneca Indians who had adopted and raised her, ostracized by the whites in the settlement, Zara Grey wanted only to be accepted. The man “Ethancaine” treated her with kindness and concern. She found it easy to trust him. And yet she sensed within him a terrible secret. She also sensed his desire, his uncertainty. Her Indian ways disturbed him, but in her heart she would always be Seneca.
He would show her how to compromise. She would teach him how to trust. Together they would find a way to love.
