Mandy Ashton fled a stifling existence for the glittering social whirl of California's state capital, trading childhood's innocence for a woman's burning desire. It was risky, masquerading as her flighty cousin, Julia, but Mandy was hardly faint of heart - as she would prove time and again on a journey fraught with deadly adventure and sublime temptation.
Travis Langly(Hawk in indian name) was a white man raised by the Cheyenne, making a difficult peace with his dual heritage. The last thing he needed was Julia, California Governor's spoiled daughter to chaperon. He thinks Mandy as Julia... But Mandy was spirited, captivating, and irresistibly sensuous... By journey's end, Mandy and Hawk were the helpless prisoners of a smoldering passion that nothing could kill - except, perhaps, the secret Mandy guarded so carefully throughout the arduous days, and ardent nights, of their long magnificent passage.
