Anno 1865. Three deadly regional conflicts, three conflicted hearts.
As the Indian Wars rage in Colorado, Ute hunter Tókwar – Black Wolf – travels without purpose after finding his wife and unborn child murdered and mutilated by Unionist militia. Sick with grief, he’s about to leave for the Spirit World when he witnesses a joint Arapaho/Cheyenne attack on a white convoy.
Dog soldier Hevo thirsts for blood. With his band of warriors on the prowl, he aims to avenge the innocents slaughtered at Sand Creek and wipe out all Pale Faces. His plan comes to an abrupt halt during a raid gone wrong, where he is wounded and asked to help assist the dramatic childbirth of a surviving enemy.
Annabelle is the daughter of a wealthy cotton plantation owner and his black slave. Though pregnant, she flees the Civil War-ravaged Arkansas with a group of settlers to build a new home, but finds herself the sole survivor of an Indian assault at the western frontier. Now young mother captive of the hostile terrain, she depends on the goodwill of two savages to stay alive. May her fiancé, a renegade Confederate soldier, survive imprisonment at Camp Douglas and come to her rescue!
Tókwar knows his newfound solace is temporary. The beautiful, feisty mixed-blood woman he calls Belle is restless, and despite his growing attraction for her and fatherly love for her son, he and Hevo must travel east and return her safely to her man. But how will he enter the Pale Faces’ war zone without risking his life—or once more losing his heart?
