Jessica is the quintessential 1920s wealthy bad girl from Montana with a penchant for running away from home if things don't go her way. As her brother's wedding to the sugary sweet Chastity nears, Jessica grows stir-crazy yet again. This time, however, fleeing south to Wyoming turns out to be much more dangerous than she ever could have predicted. When her brother hires skilled tracker Sleeping Fox to find her and bring her home, her life is forever changed.
Sleeping Fox is a man between worlds--half Blackfoot, with a white mother. Orphaned to the Indian School as a child, he grows up with a chip on his shoulder as wide as the Montana sky. A quiet man, the one thing he is known for in the small town of Wedlock is his skill as a tracker. When the wealthy rancher hires him to find his missing sister, Sleeping Fox bargains for a share of his tribe's ancestral homeland--but ends up with much more in the end.
This is the long-awaited second book in the Montana Brides series, but can be read as a stand-alone adventure romance. Through the Rocky Mountains, the rodeo circuit, brushes with Prohibition era gangsters, Russian fur traders, and wild wolves, follow the adventure of a lifetime for two star-crossed lovers from the same town, but different worlds.
