Destined to be strangers and enemies.
But the heart demands more—something dangerous.
1809. The Chumash tribe of California has always dwelled in harmony with the land, worshipping their gods and loyal to their spirits. Then heavily-armed Spanish invaders drive them from their homes, forcibly convert them to Christianity, and turn them into slaves under the control of priests and military commanders.
A determined colonel brings his wife and dark-eyed daughter Lucita to an isolated mission. Lucita spots a half-naked warrior. She's overwhelmed by the power in the savage's gaze. His connection to the wild land.
Black Wolf, once a captive of the priests, knows the colonel and his soldiers are determined to hunt him down. He longs to hide, but he must learn all he can about the enemy. He doesn't understand why he risked revealing himself to the beautiful young woman.
Lucita's father demands she marry a wealthy businessman, but Black Wolf hopes he can show her that there's more than one kind of faith and that love can unite two very different hearts.
"Vella Munn is one of the best writers of Native American historical romances. WIND WARRIOR is a fast-paced, action packed thriller that showcases two wonderful star-crossed lovers. Though the Spaniards seem more like caricatures without any redeeming qualities, Ms. Munn's brilliant homage to the lost culture of the Chumash makes this a fabulous historical romance." Harriet Klausner
