A man like Johnny Chino …was impossible to forget…although for five long years Bridget Donovan had certainly tried. But when the proud Apache asked for help, Bridget's job as a doctor wouldn't let her say no. Being so close to the man who'd broken her heart would be a trial, and she vowed never to fall for him again. Johnny was certain he'd done the right thing in breaking it off with Bridget. She deserved so much more than someone like him. Yet having her near reminded him of all he'd given up when he'd pushed her away. And those feelings—no matter how much he ignored them—weren't going away. Sometimes, what's meant to be just can't be denied.

In 1866, a Chiricahua Apache girl, Dah-zhonne, was eleven years old when a Mexican army unit attacked and decimated her band’s village. The horrible affair changed her life forever and she swore vengeance on the Mexican colonel, Lorenzo Garcia, who led the attack. Orphaned in the massacre, Dah-zhonne was rescued by American troops and adopted by an army surgeon, Jack Morgan. Morgan and his wife, Mary, soon moved to Philadelphia with the Indian girl they renamed Jada Morgan. Jada lived the upscale life of a wealthy young woman; apprenticed in Dr. Morgan’s medical practice; and received her MD degree from the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania. After two failed love affairs, she returned to the Southwest and became involved in a series of thrilling but sometimes dangerous adventures. Forced into Mexico by tribal dissidents where she was captured by Garcia, the man who killed her parents years earlier, she faces a lifetime as the colonel’s sex slave. But Jada escapes with six other women, and this daring breakout brings more unexpected dangers than they imagined. Includes Readers Guide.
