The gypsies have always been subject to ridicule by the non-gypsy communities. Aisley Smith knew of the dangers from an early age as her family and the clan traveled from one area to the next. When they settled on Caddo Lake in east Texas, she spied a young, golden skin man. Her mind took her to places her body would not be allowed to go if he were a gaje. Sam Grey remembered Aisley Smith as a child. But when his father sent him to request they be allowed to join her clan, he soon found she had grown into a beautiful temptress. How could he ever protect her from the gaje when he couldn't stop his own heart from her mystical love?
