When Angela Barnes is captured and held hostage by the Apaches, she has no idea that the fate of a nation rests on her shoulders. She wants only her freedom - even if it means the fragile peace between settlers and the Apache tribe will be shattered once and for all. As an adopted member of the Apache, Matt Colton understands the devastation war would mean for his beloved tribe. But if Angela agrees to marry him - and never tell what happened to her - order can be kept.
What starts as a marriage of convenience quickly turns into something more as sparks of passion ignite on their wedding night, and the promise of forever burns bright in their hearts.
