The Cherokee Trilogy:
Tempting the Wolf
Erica Gallatin felt her spirit rise to the challenge and fury in James Tall Wolf's eyes. The brilliant renegade Cherokee who'd played pro football was pure threatening masculinity: fierce, dangerous, with a heart-stopping physique--and utterly irresistible! He refused to believe that the shy Amazon with glorious red hair had any Cherokee blood, and when Erica arrived on the Carolina reservation he called home, he still insisted she'd never belong. He knew too well how it felt to be an outsider and was determined to drive the tantalizing lady away before she uncovered his secrets--and suspected the fierce anguish of his need to possess her. Erica accepted his bargain, agreed to stay with the Indians until James surrendered her land, but was determined to lose the battle for her innocence. Could she gentle the restless wanderer who drove her wicked and wild, and persuade this man who stood in her soul that a wolf must find his mate, no matter where she roamed?
