When the daughters of Rachael Wheeldon are abducted by Cheyenne Indians, she is tricked into following on foot by the leader of the kidnappers only to be left alone and defenceless in the wilderness. After reaching the point of no return, she is left with no option than to doggedly, push ahead across the vast plains and try to locate her children. After days with little water and no food, she finally succumbs to exhaustion, dehydration and near death. So it is to her complete, surprise that her savior turns out to be the impressive leader of the Cheyenne kidnappers, Tall Bull.
Later, Tall Bull, saves Rachael and her daughter from a fate worse than death after they are captured and abused by the violent and repulsive killers who had shot and scalped his friends. The grateful woman and her daughter, form an unlikely alliance with the Indian in their quest to prevent an army of killers from massacring the women and children of an entire Cheyenne village.
During their journey, Rachael finds that she is drawn to the impressive and ruggedly handsome, Indian more than she cares to admit. To Rachael, he is a complete enigma but one she finds disturbingly, attractive. That is when he is not tossing her into freezing cold rivers or spanking her butt just for the hell of it, whilst the next, he is tenderly and lovingly, taking care of her. However, they both come to realize that a spark has been kindled and as their journey progresses so does the fire that is beginning to burn in both their hearts.
This is the story of a woman’s search to find her children and the unlikely alliance she forms with their kidnapper as they make an epic journey with many adventures, across the Great Plains of Kansas and Colorado. The longer they dwell in each other’s company, the closer they become as the three of them journey west facing danger at every turn.
Although violent and often harrowing, this is essentially a love story set in 1875 when there was much resentment between Native American and white settlers, resulting in more than one massacre of innocent women and children of various tribes of Indians. Although this is a work of fiction, history tells us that such atrocities happened. One notable example was Custer’s raid on peaceful Cheyenne people in Colorado, resulting in the deaths of numerous women and children.
This is a sequel to, “Revenge and Chameli Gonzales.” But is also a complete story in its own right.
