Doctor Logan Kincade is every Bostonian's guest of choice--not because of his rugged good looks, his wit or his renown as a surgeon, but because his blood isn't blue like theirs. It's red. Apache Red. But the social darling fast becomes a pariah when his modern techniques are rejected by the medical community. Meanwhile, a plea from his brother summons him home to the Arizona Territory; his sister is coming of age, and he must keep a vow he made long ago to bring the White man's medicine to his people. But like Boston, home offers no hope for Logan: neither the White man nor the Apache will accept him or his medicine. After Sadie Davenport's supernatural healing power is discovered by her greedy aunt and uncle, she faces two options--allow them to exploit her ability for profit, or run away. So, when she sees an ad from a local doctor calling for a sturdy teacher to accompany him to the Arizona Territory, she jumps at the chance. Her one problem? Logan sets her heart on fire upon first sight, but because of her homely disguise he's unaware of the devastating beauty he just hired. When their journey becomes embroiled in the clashing world of the Apaches and White man, Logan and Sadie must unite in order to survive. They quickly learn that despite their surface differences, their hearts beat with shared heat and longings--and both conceal intimate secrets. Mysteries that only fuel their increasing desire for one another. As those secrets start to unravel, they realize the truth can either save their lives or destroy their future...

Major Jim Garrity needed a clean slate. After being unjustly court-martialed for the murder of four Yankee soldiers and narrowly escaping the hangman's noose, he sheds his identity and heads west to live among the Apache. As Shatto, he finds solace among his adopted brethren. But the new influx of settlers and soldiers into the Arizona Territory spells danger for the Apache people. Independence Taylor blames herself for bringing the small pox into her home that led to her mother and brother's deaths. Abandoned by her grief-stricken father, she undertakes a dangerous journey to join him at his military outpost to beg forgiveness. En route, her military escort is attacked by Apaches. She has been advised to take her own life rather than be captured, but Shatto intervenes before she can pull the trigger. Indy's initial fear of the mysterious Shatto is tempered by the bargain he strikes with her father to subdue the warriors by training a select group of troopers in Apache warfare. Imbued with the power of the wind spirit, Shatto attempts to bring peace to the troubled land. As tensions mount between the settlers and Apache, so does the undeniable attraction between Shatto and Indy. Can the would-be lovers broker peace...or will chaos rule and destroy their burgeoning passion?
Arizona Territory. Tucson. A town ruled by greed and prejudice. Half-breed Bonner Kincaid lived between two worlds. With skin light enough to allow him to act as an army interpreter, he sought tirelessly to help his Apache people live in peace with the white man. Empowered by the wind spirit, Bonner's mission was the only thing that mattered. Until Ginny Sinclair. For here was a white woman dedicated to uncovering lies and unearthing passions Bonner knew could only lead to danger. Ginny had traveled to Tucson to help with her father's newspaper but soon realized she had a lot to learn, especially from Bonner. The townspeople called the tall, handsome half-breed Apache trouble, someone to be feared. But Ginny saw a different man, one who filled her with troubling emotions, raging desires and a need to write the truth even if it destroyed her. Would their fiery union put their very lives in peril...or allow them a future not even fate could destroy?
