They came together in mutual need and during the dangerous and exhausting journey to his homestead, his admiration and desire for Cherish grew. She fought by his side during Indian attack, never complaining about the lack of food and the tiring night travel.

And finally, when Sloan awakened her wild searing passion, teaching her the art of love like she had never imagined, she became for him, the precious gift of life, the magnificent all-giving woman whom he would always LOVE and CHERISH . . .
