DEAREST ENEMY…

For two decades, Adam Tallchief's heart had insisted on no other woman but Jillian O'Malley. Now his first love had returned to Amen Flats, but not to kiss and make up. Jillian was on a revenge mission to destroy the Tallchiefs, and Adam was bent on derailing her. But one look at his lost love, and fierce wanting surged; brooding Adam battled an immense desire to kiss the lips that had once trembled beneath his. Instincts told this ultra-masculine hunter that Jillian was destined to be his Tallchief bride. Now he had only to convince the spitfire that he was not her enemy…but her answer to everlasting happiness!

Meet the Author

Bestselling author Cait London now enjoys life in Missouri, but was raised in rural Washington state. Much of her writing includes that early background amid the sage and sand and the wheat and apple crops.

With rumors of an Austrian princess in her ancestry, Cait is of German–Russian heritage, and is the only member of her family who is not bilingual. However, like Cait, every member of her family has achieved in the creative arts.

"I usually teach myself," she says. "And that is what I did with writing. I believed then, and still do, that artistic elements are translatable -- that given dedication and the eagerness to learn, one can move from one art form to another....

"In some ways, that untrained, do-it-yourself creativity is more pure than when it is taught. 'Live and learn' has always served me well. I have been an artist since I was 10, so it seemed only natural to move into writing, that is, creating pictures on pages instead of canvas."

A reader of mythology, folklore, epic poetry, and history, Cait incorporates her life experiences into her books. She believes that experience in life makes a good writer and those experiences, woven into her books, range from painting houses, gardening, canning, and sewing to researching computer software.

She loves computers, the Internet, creating bookmarks and newsletters, and reading everything, and she attends museums, festivals, powwows, and other rendezvous for research.

Writing historical romance under another pseudonym, Cait enjoyed doing research driving the full length of historic Western trails. She has driven the entire Oregon Trail and loved that experience. She uses this historic background in her contemporary romances.

This love of historical research is especially found in the popular Tallchief series from Silhouette. The original five-book series was designed as a complete unit, and her editor at the time said she had never seen anything like it. Cait designed the Tallchief logo, the genealogy chart, and of course the ancestral stories and the additional Tallchief books.

Where does she get her ideas? "All I have to do is take a long drive, look at an old house or a windmill missing a paddle, and a story unfolds to me," she says. "So those long drives across the West are very profitable, stories sticking to me like lint."

The mother of three daughters, Cait says that three is her lucky number.

She enjoys raising herbs and scented geraniums, driving cross-country, photography, cooking, and generally experiencing life. On her list of future experiences are updating her ballroom, Latin American, and folk dancing, and traveling abroad (and having Robert Duvall as a tango teacher).

Cait creates and maintains her innovative web site at caitlondon.com. Cait enjoys the friendship of many readers who write or email her. She hopes that you will write to her, too.

The grim reaper seems to have always visited Liam. When he was six, his beloved mother died. Years later, his loving wife Karen passed away while giving birth to their son, Jacob ¿J.T.¿ Thomas. Now Liam¿s cold, impatient father just died. However, with this death Liam discovers a shocker about his heritage. His mother ¿adopted¿ Liam when he was two weeks old because his biological parents, the Tallchiefs, died in a river accident.

Not wanting anything associated with his so-called dad, Liam changes his name to Tallchief and moves to Amen Flats to start fresh. As the two newcomers begin to meet his family, Michelle Fassell enters their lives. Noted for filing people into neat categories, Liam destroys Michelle¿s efficient system as they begin to fall in love with one another. However, her world is rapidly decaying and he rejects her because his son comes first and last.

TALLCHIEF: THE HOMECOMING is an emotional roller coaster, contemporary romance. Readers will taste the gut wrenching feelings of the lead couple and even the infant J.T. The story line is fast-paced and characters from previous tales in the series appear to make important contributions to the novel. Cait London¿s latest ¿TALLCHIEF¿ saga provides fans a fresh look at the extended Wyoming family while new readers will scramble for previous novels.
