Risking her life to save cavalry officer Zach Mercer so that she could make him her slave, vengeful Cheyenne Tears Like Rain could not anticipate that her captive would incite a desire for him as strong as her hate.
As untamed as the prairie, as free as the wind, she hated what white men were doing to the Cheyenne. But spirited Tears Like Rain risked her life to save a cavalry officer and make him her slave.
Although the Indians had beaten and stabbed Zach Mercer to the brink of death, the real torture didn't begin until Tears Like Rain rescued him. Never had Mercer ached so desperately for a woman who scorned him. Zach longed to make his beautiful virgin captor desire him as fiercely as she now despised him, but he wouldn't succeed until they both learned a different lesson: that only the bonds of love are unbreakable.
