"Historical Romance to Sweep You Back in Time!"

The Sacred Council of Arrows chooses time wanderers to aid the Cheyenne in times of trouble. They cannot change the past, only influence with hope that their advice will be put to good use.

Ethan Gray of modern time is chosen to go back to 1864 because of his knowledge of the people. He's known as Meko in this time, the leader of the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers. When Meko captures Francesca (Cesca) Duvall, he never thought he would be in jeopardy of losing his heart. His stay in the past will eventually come to an end when the Council decides he has fulfilled his mission. Or if he is on the threshold of death, he must then let the power of the raven course through his veins and take him to the heavens and back to the present. Only now he fears he cannot do as the Council bids when his heart and soul belongs to Cesca.

When Cesca is first taken, she bravely stands up to Meko, stating she will never accept her life among the Cheyenne. Brave words, but her heart has other plans and she finds herself longing for Meko's touch.

Marsh Duvall, Cesca's brother is also taken in the raid, but his captor, Choking Wolf takes great delight in abusing him. Cesca can't stand by and see her little brother hurt. She vows to see him safely away from the Cheyenne, even if it means her death.

Through the lives of these three people, Ms. Bryan spins a vivid account of how grueling and sometimes brutal the life of a Dog Soldier could be. I loved how she wove the rituals and beliefs of the Cheyenne people throughout the tale as if you were there seeing it first hand. The passion between Cesca and Meko is endearing as they learn to trust and accept each other for who they truly are. Marsh's acceptance of the Cheyenne ways is believable, giving a full account of the ordeal expected of him to become a Dog Soldier. I also liked her secondary characters. Brown Wing, the old woman who befriends Cesca and Strikes First's, who is loyal to Meko.

This is a historical romance sure to magically sweep you back in time. A must read!

But she never counted on falling in love with the man whose smoldering sapphire eyes cause her to tremble with unbridled passion. Ethan Gray, the man, is a curator at a famous museum . . . most of the time, that is. At other times, he's Meko, a savage warrior hurtled into the past to help his beloved people, the Cheyenne. A Rebellious Beauty Though their worlds are decades apart, Meko, can't resist the dark-haired, green-eyed beauty he kidnaps during a raid. A brutal, savage leader of the Dog Soldiers, he has many battles to fight to save his people, but none he wants to win more than the one that will capture Cesca's heart forever.
