While her beloved family struggles to put down stakes in the harsh Minnesota territory, Lorinda Odell is in St. Paul to get a proper education. But the bustling city is not without its own hazards, especially for a young woman as lovely as Lorinda. Her fiery red hair and seductive curves have caught the eye of a vicious trapper who hungers to make her his own. Before Lorinda can settle into city life, she finds herself orphaned by a brutal Indian attack and kidnapped by the trapper. Lorinda is rescued by a steely Chippewa brave.

To the Crow people the land was a gift from the First Maker, a place of snowy mountains and sunny plains, where elk and antelope grazed by brightly tumbling streams. But Chief Brave Wolf knew that proud heritage was threatened by the pony soldiers under Yellow Hair's command, for they spread death and destruction wherever they rode. To Mary Beth Wilson, Custer's Last Stand meant the end of her marrieage and a lonely trek back east with her young son David. When renegades attacked her wagon train, carrying off her beloved child, she thought her heart would break, until rescue came in the form she least expected: a powerful Crow warrior whose gentle eyes promised she would know nothing but tenderness at his hands. This beautiful man was both her savior and her enemy, her ... Savage Hero.
