Amanda Lennox, blond, green eyed and intelligent, at least she thought she was intelligent until she lied to get this job of bringing Roger Thornton Bannister III home. The little monster was making the already rough trip through the western countryside unbearable. Amanda has always prided herself on her even temper but now, stuck in the river, with the spoiled Roger splashing her and demanding lunch, Amanda is ready to blow. Even Roger realizes that perhaps he's pushed her too far and goes rushing off into the forest to find someone to help Amanda.

To Amanda's surprise and relief, Roger comes back with a man. But after just a few minutes with this man, Amanda's wondering if maybe being trapped in the river wasn't better than having to put up with this man.

Jacob Blackhawk Chandler is no one's idea of a hero, including himself. A half breed Indian with a chip the size of the Rockies on his shoulder, Jake doesn't want to get involved with Amanda and Roger but since there is no one else around to get Amanda out of the hole she's in, he steps up.

Getting out of the river requires a lot more body contact then Amanda was prepared for. She's thankful that Jake was there to help but is uneasy with the new thoughts crowding her head. She just wants to get back on the trail and get Roger home.

Ready to leave Amanda and Roger to find their way through the country side is fine with him until Roger comes up missing. Amanda turns again to him for help and against his better judgement, Jake agrees to help find Roger. He tells himself it's because of the money that Amanda has offered him and nothing else.

As Amanda and Jake trek through the countryside on Roger's trail, they find themselves drawn to each other. But what kind of life can a angry half breed offer a proper Bostonian white woman specially in a country where Indians and white people don't mix, and being caught together can cause death?

I really enjoyed this novel. With wonderful commentary on the western countryside, the tiny towns and the relationships between people of different races this was a very readable novel. The characters are well rounded, with some flaws which helps to make them believable. The story clips along at a steady pace.
