Readers will like this book as I did, if they go into it with the mindset that is was originally written in 1988 when romance was the name but the perspective was completely different. Kat Martin in these early books show you the greatness that was waiting to be developed in her future writing.
Reviewer: Mary Gramlich, The Reading Reviewer
Kat Martin employs many tried and true themes, adding twists and sensuality to an adventurous read that will satisfy western romance fans. Reviewer: Romantic Times 1988A hero and heroine who love each other timelessly.
Martin is a new writer in this field, with additional books lined up for publication. Her first try, while short on plot and historical texture and flavor, is long on the one main ingredient romance readers demand: a hero and heroine who love each other timelessly.Reviewer L.A. LIFE 1988
From the Back Cover
Mandy Ashton fled a stifling frontier existence for the glittering social whirl of Sacramento City, California's state capital, trading childhood innocence for a woman's burning desire. Though it's risky to masquerade as her flighty cousin, Julia, Mandy is determined to give her cousin a chance at happiness with the man she loves. But Mandy is hardly faint of heart--proven time and again on a journey fraught with deadly adventure and sublime temptation.Travis Langley, known by his Indian name, Hawk, is a white man raised by the Cheyenne, a man trying to make peace with his dual heritage. The last thing he needs is a job chaperoning Julia Aston, the California governor's spoiled daughter. But Mandy--posing as Julia--is spirited, captivating, and irresistibly sensuous. By journey's end, Mandy and Hawk have become helpless prisoners of a smoldering passion that nothing can kill--except, perhaps, the secret Mandy has guarded so carefully throughout the arduous days and passionate nights of their long, magnificent passage.
