The Hunter of the Hinterland . . .
As powerful and untamed as the majestic Mississippi, Yellow Thunder hated the white men who were selling his people into bondage. Determined to keep the notorious slaver Calvin Wyatt from destroying his tribe, the Osage brave traveled to New Orleans, and there he fell under the spell of the only woman who would ever master him -- Wyatt's stepsister.
Young and beautiful, Ashley Bradley knew nothing of her stepbrother's slave trading, or of his lust for her. Fleeing his seduction, she was captured by his vicious cohorts and threatened with a life in chains. Rescued by Yellow Thunder, Ashley soon yearned to forsake civilized society for the warrior's tender loving and wild spirit. But both knew that until their enemy was stopped they would never be free to enjoy the glory of another savage sunrise . . .
