A beautiful spirit woman and a hardened drifter embark on a perilous quest for gold. And in this spellbinding novel of romance and adventure from bestselling author Sandra Chastain, they discover the rarest gem of all: true love.
He first comes to her in a dream, taking the form of a sleek and tawny cougar with the power to protect her. So when Raven Alexander awakes to find herself lying beside the rugged stranger, she isn’t afraid. He may be an unruly cowboy with a checkered past, but Raven knows that he was sent to help her find the sacred Araphao treasure. Yet soon she finds herself caught between duty to her people and the longings of her heart.
As a rule, Tucker Farrell doesn’t trust anyone, especially not women, and especially not a woman like Raven who believes in spirit guides and animal power—no matter how enticing she looks in her buckskin dress. Raven thinks he can lead her to a treasure he knows nothing about . . . but she’s not the only one. With bloodthirsty bandits on their trail, Tucker has no choice but to take this wise, wild woman’s life into his hands—and put his heart in hers.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Ride with Me, See How They Run, and Ivy Secrets.
About Sandra Chastain
As a child I made up fantasy lives for my paper dolls, never knowing that I would use these same creative skills later as a writer. I only knew that I became those dolls and lived their lives. Later came amateur stage shows for the neighborhood children to perform, my first Nancy Drew mystery, a one-act play, and finally a musical performed by high school students on an auditorium stage. From the Indian tepee that Santa brought when I was a ten-year-old, to the living room I've recently converted into my office, I'm still stretching the boundaries of my imagination.
After twenty years of working together, my husband and I sold our small-animal veterinary practice. Now he consults and practices part-time while I write full-time. Our three daughters are married, and we have grandchildren who always want Gran to tell them a story. And Gran always complies.
I wouldn't change a thing about my life, for my family is a living expression of the love I write about. When I create a romance for you, I'm telling stories of love and commitment, and I can't tell you how much pleasure I get from writing about happily ever after. --Sandra Chastain
