Beautiful, flame-haired Mariah Temple is the daughter of a tyrannical father who despises all Indians and has given them every reason to hate him. Echohawk is the handsome Chippewa brave sworn to avenge the wrongs done to his father and his people. But when Mariah and Echohawk meet, something wonderful happens: suddenly their bloodlines do not seem to matter, their differences are swept away.
The two are inseparable... until a fiercely guarded secret is revealed and the shattering truth tears them apart. A future together would seem impossible, yet nothing can diminish the smoldering heat of their desire... the pure intensity of their passion that propels them over all barriers -- and lifts them to a love that defies all odds.
