A half-breed illegitimate, Sinclair Sullivan knows he has no place in the world. Not with white men, not with the Comanche - and certainly not with beautiful Eden Rourke, the sister of one of his only friends. But when Eden meets him on the road to Rock Creek, she insists that he accompany her to town. With two orphaned waifs in her wagon, and enough determination to fell a much more stubborn man, Eden's demand is irresistible - and once in Rock Creek, Sullivan finds himself unable to resist stealing more than one kiss. She's certain that their love is written in the stars, despite her brother's objections... and yet, Sullivan must first convince himself that he's the man his lovely Eden deserves.
