(back cover) Bound and helpless, the blue-eyed prisoner was an enemy of her people. One who was going to die. But his powerful gaze told Hope his spirit was strong, and suddenly she knew this man had a part in her future. Baron's will to live had fled during the Civil War, during an act so unforgivable he'd been punishing himself ever since. He didn't want mercy at the hands of his captors, but he was granted a second chance by an old woman and a beautiful Lakota girl. Could a sacred ritual and a loving heart make him whole again, give him the right, at long last, to take Hope?
