CHEROKEE WARRIORS: THE CAPTIVE
Raney Childress has done everything her father has ever told her to do, including refusing to marry lawman Creed Sixkiller because he's half Cherokee.
But not this time. Now she's tracking down her younger brother, who fled after escaping arrest by Creed.
Finding Raney on the road without protection, Creed can't offer to escort her. Ever since her rejection of his proposal, he's ignored her. But he soon finds his heart in danger again as they head for San Antonio to find the truth about her younger brother.
Some delicious tension begins to build between Raney and Creed once she smartens up and stops doing what the men in her life tell her to do. Watching Raney go from spoiled brat to self-assured woman makes this uncomplicated story worth spending a long evening on. SENSUAL (Nov., 384 pp., $5.99)
