Adi McLaurin is competent, capable, responsible, and the sole heir to her fathers kingdom. She would do whatever necessary to protect it for her sisters and brother, including marrying a man she doesnt love.

But theres a slight hitch in the plan. She is already married to Grayson Renaux. Grayson is the uncle of her newest responsibility, Katherine (Kit) McLaurin, daughter of her recently deceased Choctaw brother and Graysons deceased sister. As per her brothers wishes, she agreed to a simple ceremony to join the tribe with Grayson. Little did she know it was a wedding ceremony!

Adi and Grayson are two people who are willing to do whatever it takes to preserve their families. They are at seemingly cross purposes, but find through deep, abiding love that even the obstacles from beyond the grave can be overcome.

This traditional western is full of twists, turns and changes. A real page turner. (Jan., 300 pp., $7.99)
