What Shiloh doesn’t expect is for the feared war chief, Shadowhawk to be Moon Song’s brother.

Shadowhawk never expected to owe anyone a debt of honor for saving his sister’s life. After accepting the fact that he owes Shiloh his gratitude for his sister, he never expected to feel more than that for her. As he gets to know Shiloh more his feelings for her get stronger every day. He also knows that he will do whatever he needs to protect Shiloh from harm.

Someone is trying to insure that Shiloh and her brother, Luke lose their ranch. They just have to find a way to stop those after their ranch and also prove to everyone that they may be young but they are completely capable of running their ranch. They only just beginning to realize is that Shadowhawk may be the only one they can completely trust. Shadowhawk is going to do whatever he needs to so the siblings can keep their ranch.

This is a fast paced story that keeps you involved in the story until the very end. It shows Texas in the early days and gives you a glimpse into the life of the Comanche when they still rode the plains and lived free. This is a very well written book that keeps you reading until the end. This book also gives you a peek into the hardships that families faced during this time period. It brings the history of Texas alive for the reader.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
