Ida Meade is out of her element. A Pittsburgh debutante, she travels alone ahead of her fiance to begin setting up an Indian school. Her family is blissfully unaware that the outwardly obedient Ida led a double life in Pittsburgh, consorting with the servants and their families, which fed her desire for daring adventure.
Alone in the Oklahoma Territory, with the promised Indian agent nowhere in sight, Ida must manage to do everything on her own, including living in a house the town folk claim is haunted. She longs for the day her reserved fiance will finally finish his business obligations to join her and begin their married life. But despite having to do without servants for the first time in her life, Ida is energized by the wildness of her surroundings.
Jeremiah Griggs, the Indian agent is disconcerted to find Ida alone in the remote schoolhouse. He can't figure out why her fiance would send such a beautiful woman alone into the wilderness. Jeremiah fights his attraction to Ida, knowing she's off limits. But as mysterious occurrences build into outright danger, Ida needs him more than she realizes, and far more than she's willing to admit.
Taming the Wild Wind is the best kind of historical romance. Highly recommended!
