About the Book

Heading out west to Nebraska becomes a nightmare when Aiden Conner’s fiance deserts her. Having a knife held to her throat by a blond-haired Cheyenne warrior only adds to her terror. All she wants is to return home to her family in St. Louis, but a blizzard traps her and her wounded captor in a cabin in the wilderness. After the betrayal of his mother’s people, Stone Heart has sworn to never again speak the language of his white father. He vows to see that the surviving Northern Cheyenne, the Beautiful People, are allowed to return to their home. But the red-haired Irish woman will surely die if he abandons her. As they weather the storm and fight together to survive, they find that, despite their different worlds, their hearts are one and the same. When Stone Heart leaves her to free his people imprisoned at Ft. Robinson, Aiden determines to help him in any way she can. Only then can she truly be Stone Heart’s Woman.

From the Author

This book was long in coming. It was first written as a western historical, but then I realized that I’d been writing western historical romances for so long the genre crept in. So I completely rewrote it, leaving out a lot of the back story scenes and adding romantic scenes for the readers I knew followed my books.

This multi-cultural love story is enmeshed within one of the most tragic occurrences in American history. The Northern Cheyenne were dying out on the reservation in Indian Territory, and with their two leaders, Little Wolf and Dull Knife (Morning Star) broke out and headed north for home. Fifteen hundred miles of walking, the men, women and children fled soldiers who picked them off at every turn. At Fort Robinson, in Nebraska they were penned up, and here they made their final break out.
Here begins the story of Stone Heart and the red-haired Irish Aiden Connor.
I spent a lot of time in tears while writing this story. I credit writer Maria Sandoz and her deeply researched book Cheyenne Autumn for most of the information about the experiences of the Cheyenne during this time. And I thank The Wild Rose Press and Rhonda Penders for seeing the value of my story and publishing it in their Cactus Rose line.
