Back cover: Delicate and elegantly dressed Samara Labonte is the prettiest passenger on the train to Kansas City. Fleeing Paris and a tumultuous past, she dares to hope that her new life in America will bring happiness...and even love. But as the train winds through its final miles toward the booming prairie town, bloodcurdling cries fill the air and wildly painted savages sweep Samara from the train. She fears her young life will soon be over, but fear cannot quell the attraction she feels for her mysterious bronze-skinned captor. Enchanted by his blue eyes, Samara soon learns that this man who calls himself Wild Spirit is actually Cade Ramsey, a federal agent sent to help the Indians. Just as Samara is awakening to desires she has never know, her future is threatened by a jealous con man and a crooked frontier judge. Suddenly, Samara faces the possibility that she and Cade might be torn apart forever.
