From the back cover:(2nd of sequel Cheyenne Splendor.)
Before the white man came, the vast plains belonged to the Cheyenne. And boston debutante Summer Van Scuyler belonged to the magnificent half-breed, Iron Knife. She'd come to him as a captive, defying her heritage to stay by his side. But war clouds were gathering on the horizon...and tragedy soon force Summer to return to her privileged world. With sorrow in her heart, she left her wilderness paradise and Iron Knife's loving arms...unaware that treachery would keep them apart. Iron Knife had two passions: his freedom and Summer. Now he'd risk capture in an alien territory to find her again. The trail was fraught with danger; the journey challenged his heart and soul. But the proud warrior knew that the aristocratic beauty was his destiny...and he'd fight to the death for the splendor of her forbidden love.
