by Glynnis Campbell
Free-spirited artist Mattie Hardwicke flees New York society to be a mail order bride in Gold Rush California. But her dreams of starting over are crushed when her husband-to-be is killed by one of the local tribe of Konkows, to whom the invading whites are a threat. Tribal custom, however, requires the Konkows look after the victim’s widow. Sakote, the fierce native who appoints himself her guardian, is soon enchanted by the beautiful artist, who has not only captured his world in her drawings, but also his heart. Together they must fight for a forbidden love more precious than gold.
