Overview


Pheasant Gully, Dakota Territory, 1867

A fire made Matilda O'Brien a widow on her wedding day, and left her blind. It also took the Sight, a gift from her mother's people. Yet nothing will stop her from keeping her family together, not even the frightening incidents that suggest someone is trying to drive her and her siblings off their land. When her visions suddenly return, she knows the stranger with blue eyes is the one man who can help her...

Bounty hunter Reed Robertson is in town for one reason only: revenge against the men who killed his wife. He has no intention of getting tangled up in the threats against Mattie's family. But something about her draws him, fills him with hope, and calls to a part of himself he's tried to bury... Can he allow himself to accept the love of a woman he doesn't believe he deserves?

Read an Excerpt


Gray shrouded the land. Silvery clouds streaked with pewter hid the pale glow of the rising sun, while below moist air rose from the river. The dense yet cottony fog rose like so many ghosts soaring free from graves to glide up and over the banks. Thinning, merging, flowing, the mists wove as one around stands of grayish cottonwoods like satin ribbons before spilling across a sea of bright green grass.

Tendrils trailed outward as a gentle breath of wind swept across the land, molding the wispy fog into myriad images—some delicate and beautiful, others heavy and grotesque, mirroring the horrors of the world.

From high above, the brown blur of an owl dropped gracefully from the cloudy sky and swept across the river, parting the nearly translucent wisps with each downward thrust of its wide wings. The bird allowed the breath of Tate, the wind spirit, to guide him between the trunks of two towering cottonwoods, and to carry him toward a solitary cabin enveloped by the cold fog.

"She dreams," Tate whispered.

"It is time," Owl replied.

"Time for what?" The wind followed the small bird in its flight around the single-story dwelling.

"Truth."

The darkness within the home called to Owl. He spiraled down, lifted his wings high and landed on the rough-hewn porch railing at the rear of the house. Folding back his wings, he sidestepped until he could see through the window to the bed where a woman tossed and turned.

"She dreams," Tate said again. He ruffled the feathers of his friend.

Owl flapped his wings. Tate was irritated with him, but this was as it needed to be. "She must. The truth must be revealed." Guardian of Dreamtime, Owl knew that important things often hid deep inside the mind, revealing themselves only in the solace of sleep. But the restless movements of the woman's tossing and turning finally got to him.

"Enough! Awake!" he cried. The tip of one wing brushed against the cold pane of glass.

The woman, caught in the dark world of dreams, cried out. Tipping his head back, Owl sent up a shrill shriek into the morning air. It was time for the dark-haired beauty to wake.
