In the darkness came an eerie howling only she could hear. And with it the knowledge that tragedy would soon follow. This time, Letty Wolf would obey the teachings of her Kiowa heritage and bring back to New York her three estranged daughters ... before it was too late.
Though her father had lost his life pursuing the dream of striking it rich in Arizona, Johanna is determined to succeed where he had failed. Instead, she comes close to losing her virtue on the trail west. Rescued by a dark-eyed, dangerous-looking stranger, she has no choice but to hire him to drive her wagon. Wade Mitchell, she discovers, is hiding something. But then, her mother had raised her on secrets, and now Johanna has one of her own: her powerful attraction to the rugged gunman. Wade can claim her body and soul if he will just give her his heart.
