Lucas Greywolf is a desperate man. His grandfather is dying, and Lucas has to see him first. But the prison board wouldn`t let him out, so he escaped. And found himself in Aislinn Andrews` home.
Aislinn knows who he is, his face was all over the news. But instead of fear of this proud American Indian, she felt something else, but didn`t dare name it while she was in his company.
Using her to get to his grandfather, they fight each other and the undeniable attraction that they feel for each other. He plans to turn himself in after seeing his grandfather, expecting Aislinn to press charges against him.
When she doesn`t, he`s more than surprised, but when he`s released he goes to her home and thanks her. And finds that she`d had his child. He wants Aislinn to marry him then so that he can have his son, or he`ll take the baby away. Because he`s Native American, she knows that he`ll win and consents to marry him.
Now their son is ill, and they face the greatest challenge of all. Will they be able to overcome their differences and let love win?
This is the first Sandra Brown I ever read. And it was more than good enough to have me searching through bookstores for more. Aislinn and Lucas are well suited for each other. A proud couple with many differences but a passion that can`t be denied. I tell you, this is probably one of the best books I`ll ever read. (I know I say that all the time, but there`s more than enough room for one more on the mountain!) I really do recommend this book to any reader of Native American books as it points out the social challenges that Native Americans face in today`s society, even in the politically correct world.
