Lakota Chief Running Fox doesn't expect to fall for the woman he kidnaps when he attempts to teach her father, a whiskey peddler, a lesson. Nancy Partain's life improves while living with Running Fox. She no longer fears humiliation at the local saloon where her stepfather forces her to sing. Now, she worries about her mother, alone under the control of Joseph Brock.

It is 1879 in pioneer Michigan. Joseph Brock trades his whiskey directly to young Indian braves for valuable pelts. By day, he requires his beautiful stepdaughter, Nancy, to accompany him on his whiskey runs. Joe not only cheats the youths, but he introduces them to a substance that damages their lives. Chief Running Fox warns Joe to stay away and confronts him in Nancy's presence. She admires the chief's concern for the young members of his tribe and his self- control in dealing with her devious stepfather.
***
Nancy misses her real father and feels her mother remarried in haste. In the evenings, Joe demands that Nancy sing for drunken men at his saloon where he introduces her as Naughty Nancy. Her eyesight is poor without her glasses. She intentionally doesn't wear them in order to avoid eye contact with the boisterous men who humiliate her with their chants.

The flow of whiskey from Joe to the Lakota and Chippewa braves increases. Tragedy results when two drunken young men rape a young Indian maiden. The Lakota and Chippewa tribes are rival tribes, but when Running Fox punishes the braves, the Chippewa Chief supports him. Running Fox must curtail Joe's underhanded trading schemes. A single arrow would do it, but Running Fox must protect Indian land from white settlers without inflaming the entire white community. In an act of vengeance, he kidnaps Joseph's daughter, Nancy.

For anyone who love tales of the western frontier, this is a must read. It's full of drama, love & such wonderful sex scenes. I'd read every book by Cassie Edwards involving Indian tales. It almost makes you feel your are living the story and keeps your interest throughout.

I can't read this. I tried, I really did, but the prose is painful, and the plot is pathetically telegraphed in every thought and action of the cardboard cutout hero, and limp dishrag heroine. The writing is barely what I was consider a 6th grade level, and the dialogue feels awkward and forced, particularly between the women. The third person omni perspective means you can never be quite sure whose thoughts or words you're following at any given moment, and it's painfully clear the author did only the sketchiest research possibly on the Native American peoples she's attempting to portray, and then only so she can sprinkle Indian-sounding words into her story to try and make it sound... More intelligent? More authentic? In any case, she failed in both attempts. Her portrayal of native peoples in particular borders on offensive at best.

I've read fanfic better than this. I've WRITTEN fanfic better than this. The only value I got from this book was an evening's amusement, reading some of the truly awful lines aloud to friends for laughs. Maybe I'm being overcritical of what amounts to soft core porn for bored housewives, but I like my erotica with at least a modicum of intelligence. This falls far short of the mark. Don't waste your time.

This is the third book I have tried to read by Cassie Edwards. I haven't made it through one yet! This one got chucked across the room in disgust when the same line was used for both characters. (she knew that she was lost, heart and soul, to him..... he knew that he was lost, heart and soul, to her...) this was all within a couple paragraphs of each other and all because she got stung by some wasps? The other thing I really don't like about any of Cassie Edwards books is that the women are all "librarian" typed. Glasses, or conservative, etc. Shy, meager women. I like to read about women that are sure of what they want and go for it even though it's dangerous. This book was unbelievable as a native american novel especially because everyone spoke perfect English. I would not recommend this book to my worst enemy.

I must say, even though Running Fox took Nancy away to Ghost Island and caused her mother to become worried sick, they both became the best of friends.

One of my favorite parts about this book is saving Nancy's mother, killed the stepfather, Joe and best of all - marriage.

I want to say that all of her series that she has (Wild Series, Savage Series and more) are great, love the native american theme in those and have read a few of the others. Thank you for being such a great writer!!!
