The Wild West of 1876 was no Place for a Lady
And Madeleine Avery was every inch a fine Philadelphia lady, from the top of her tidy head to the tips of her ivory kid shoes. gold had lured her to the Black Hills-but with neighbors like Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and a Little Bighorn survivor, Maddie just didn't fit in. Then she met Fox daniel, rugged, strong, proud-and something began to stir within her.
A quest for the truth about her family led Maddie from bawdy Deadwood to the wide Dakota Plains roamed by Crazy Horse and the last free band of Sioux. Along the way, she found herself yearning for a man who wouldn't accept her love, and she discovered that Fox was not quite what he seemed. he hid too many secrets, too much guilt, and a past that was chasing him. Yet Fox's hungry, stolen caress told her heartwhat his words refused to say.
Madeline Avery, every inch a fine Philadelphia lady, is confused by her new life in the Black Hills where she does not fit in with the likes of Calamity Jane, and her confusion is heightened when she starts getting mixed messages from Fox Daniel.
