"Dreams and destiny bring Chino and Abigail together"
Chino Whitehorse was 11 when he had a vision-dream of
saving the horses. Years later, he now sought vengeance
against the white man who ordered the murder of his wife
and son. The spirit of his dreams sent him to the valley
and he is surprised to see that his dream horse is on
Abby's ranch. When he learns the identity of the
individual pressuring Abby to sell her ranch, Chino sees
his destiny unfolding because the same man ordered the
execution of his family. But he never thought of his
destiny beyond revenge... until meeting Abby.
It has been two years since her husband's death by a band
of Apache warriors. Though the grief has somewhat faded,
Abigail Madison faces the difficulty of raising two
children and running the Flying M Ranch in Arizona.
Although he is different than she expected of an Apache,
how can she overcome her prejudice and grief to trust him.
Add what to do about the unexpected passion she feels for
this handsome warrior? Showing she is woman who knows what
she wants, Abby made the first sensual advances with
Chino. Again, the different cultural expectations of
romance are expressed in often sizzling interludes as they
discover more about each other and teach each other ways of
Apache life-way is discussed including Chino's experiences
with spirits and dream visions. Native American romance
readers will approve of the portrayal and it is presented
smoothly as part of their learning of each other. Those
who enjoy a more sensual romance will not be disappointed.
This is a well-written story with plenty of action in and
out of the bedroom. It will leave you with a satisfying
ending when love brings forgiveness, healing and
