As Chief Proud Eagle, of the Makah Indians, looks at the three-story mansion of the lumber baron that has caused him and his tribe so much loss and pain, he notices a woman coming out of the house. The woman is all dressed in black and a veil covers her head and face, and she walks in the direction of what he knew was the family cemetery. The lumber baron had passed away, but Proud Eagle had vowed there would not be another tragedy in his peopleís land. Who is this woman?

Billie Shaugnessy has come all the way from Seattle with the intention of taking over her fatherís lumber business. Her parents had separated when Billieís father decided to move his business to Eagle Bay. He had even constructed a mansion for his wife and Billie, however, Billieís mother had a fragile health and didnít want to move. Although she had the choice of continuing her motherís business, she opted to take over her fatherís, despite the fact that it wasnít exactly the sort of business that a woman could easily take over.

Now alone, as both her parents have passed away, Billie is facing what seems to be an even bigger challenge than she had expected ... and the handsome Chief Proud Eagle certainly was a completely unexpected complication.

In Proud Eagle Cassie Edwards once more brings the reader a wonderfully romantic historical tale. Proud Eagle is a rather uncomplicated love story about two people from two different cultures, brought together by circumstances. The story is pretty easy to follow, in a way it could even be classified as predictable; however, I found it to be an engaging romance. I think it will particularly appeal to those of you who are seeking a romantic and sweet story without complications, likeable characters, and a nice HEA (happily-ever-after) ending. This is the sort of romance suitable for romance readers of any age.
