A woman with no roots...
Naomi fled the cult-like nightmare of her childhood and learned to rely on one person-herself. Her resourcefulness keeps her alive during a catastrophe in the mountains, but it's no help at all when it comes to Chaska Belcourt, the sexy EMT who saves her life. Raised to feel shame about her body and sex, she is putty in Chaska's hands as he strips away her armor, exposing the vulnerable woman beneath, awakening desires in her that she'd been taught to ignore.
A kiss that changes everything...
Chaska Belcourt grew up on the reservation, the son of a hereditary Sun Dance chief. He left all of that behind for a new life in Colorado as an engineer with an aerospace firm and a member of the elite Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team. He doesn't share his sister's belief that fate led him to find Naomi. But from the first moment their lips touch, he can't get enough of her.
A love that transforms...
As the passion between them turns into something more, Chaska is forced to admit that his sister is right. There's no other way to explain the depth of his feelings for Naomi-or the fact that he and his people might hold the key to unraveling the mysteries of her past. But she will have to learn to trust again before the two of them can find the answers she needs-and claim this once-in-a-lifetime love.
