After waiting years for her estranged father to come home,
Emma O'Brien decides to brave the wilderness to fetch him
herself. But the journey takes a detour when her party is
attacked by Arikara warriors, and Emma is taken captive.
Rescue comes in the form of Sioux chief Striking Thunderâ€”but
to Emma's shock, instead of releasing her, he claims her as
his slave. Emma is not sure what is more infuriating: the
arrogant brave, or the way he awakens her passions...
Striking Thunder seeks revenge on the men he holds
responsible for his wife's death, and the feisty redhead is
the perfect bait. He cannot believe the spirits have
destined her to be his brideâ€”but nor can he deny she stirs
something within him that no other woman ever has. Though
his duty to his people is clear, it is not long before
Striking Thunder's heart is enslaved by his own captive...
