Yvette arrived in the West already disappointed and downtrodden. Her father had been killed by savages while they were enroute to the new land. His best friend has asked for her hand and on her father’s deathbed, she agreed to appease him. However, what her heart really wants is to jump the first train back to Boston. Until a freak accident finds her in the middle of an Indian encampment with Cloud Walker looking after her.

Cloud Walker is a man determined to keep the peace with the white people invading his people’s land. Thus, through this determination he decides to help a hurt Yvette heal and then she can explain he was her helper and not the cause of her accident. As the chain of events begin to unravel, Cloud keeps finding his emotions too tied up with the strange white woman in his tent.

Having read a lot of the Savage series, and loving some while being pickier with others, this is one installment of the series Edward’s fans won’t want to miss! This was told wonderfully and moves at a nice even pace. There is no “forced” trauma or over telling of the villain’s part in the story. The hero and heroine don’t spend the entire book fighting their attraction for each other and all in all this was a great read.

Yvette is a sensible woman that doesn’t go to extremes to prove she’s tougher than nails. So the reader can really relate to her character. Lovers of this genre will not be disappointed with this story!
