This month, Cindy Holby continues her Native American saga, which began with Chase the Wind. Jamie Duncan and his sister, Jenny, have settled into Jason Lynch's huge spread like they were family. With Jenny and Chase happily married, the eclectic family of cowboys and their women pass their days waiting to see if the election of Lincoln will start a war.

Life is sweet for all: Jenny is expecting but keeping it secret, and Jamie meets and weds the love of his life. But tragedy strikes on their wedding day. Jamie is shot and killed by Jenny's old enemy, Logan. Chase doesn't wait to see his blood brother buried, so he tracks Logan with plans to kill him.

Long flashback passages and the lovers' extended separation slow the pace and lessen the emotional intensity of this romance. SWEET (Jun., 352 pp. $5.99)
