Love conquers all in Heather Graham's Civil War series, as a delicate love--born from the bitter aftermath of war--is destined to bloom on the untamed frontier.
As the dust settles in the South, Christa Cameron emerges from the Confederacy's bitter defeat bent but not broken, her spirit unvanquished, and her sense of outrage inflamed. To save her family's plantation, Christa hopes to marry a Yankee officer . . . so she coaxes one into a legal union. But Christa vows not to compromise her pride or her purity--no matter how far her virile new husband carries her from home.
Though she might not think much of him, Colonel Jeremy McCauley has fallen hard for the stunning, stubborn Christa. As the cavalry heads west with the stampeding buffalo, Jeremy insists that she play the part of loyal army wife and join him, intending to build a new world on the ashes of the old. But when Christa is taken hostage by a dangerous Indian tribe, Jeremy must prove the startling depths of his devotion--and fulfill the promise of a love as fierce as the American wilderness.
