Raney is determined to find her brother whom is on the run from the law. Due to family circumstances, she is sure her father will be upset by his recent imprisonment. This is all the result of a town feud. She meets up with her spurned beau, Creed, on her way to find him. Creed wants her to go home, when she refuses he accepts his fate and drags her with him.


Headed for Dodge City with Raney, is the last thing on earth Creed wants to be doing. He was done with the helpless woman the minute she turned down his wedding proposal over his Indian heritage. Little does he know she will worm her way back into the one place he swore she’d never touch - his heart.


This was a very cute story. The action keeps moving and the characters when they talk or think may as well be in your own home you can picture them so clearly. Not overdone with the conflict or constantly bogged down with repetitive thoughts and phrases, this was a very refreshing story to read. Thinking after having read a few dozen Indian stories, there’s nothing left to tell, this book should prove the theory wrong.


Without over dwelling on his heritage, she does a nice job of making a story believable. The twists and turns it takes as it leads you down the road for the missing brother, whom you almost begin to hope they don’t find because despite his endearment to his sister he has few redeemable qualities to the reader, are well worth the time spent reading this story. Shove the books aside, if you’re a fan of westerns/Indian romances your going to want to make room for this one!
