It's 1875, and half-native Chase Wolf has vowed to take vengeance on the rancher he believes enslaved his grandmother twelve years ago. When the rancher's runaway daughter Claire practically falls into his lap, he kidnaps her instead, deciding the perfect revenge is at hand…that is, until he sobers up, realizes he's stolen an innocent white woman, and can't figure out how to give her back. Winsome Claire Parker, raised on rip-roaring dime novels, is sure that the bold Red-Skin who steals her is after her scalp or her virtue. But once she learns who Chase is, and when she discovers the handsome savage has a soft heart, she begins to fall in love with her gallant captor and doesn't want him to give her back. Now, with a posse hot on their trail, they'll have to mend the broken past if their love is to survive.
