About the Author

SHIRL HENKE lives in St. Louis, where she enjoys gardening in her yard and greenhouse, cooking holiday dinners for her family and listening to jazz. In addition to helping brainstorm and research her books, her husband Jim is “lion tamer” for their two wild young tomcats, Pewter and Sooty, geniuses at pillage and destruction.
Shirl has been a RITA finalist twice, and has won three Career Achievement Awards, an Industry Award and three Reviewer’s Choice Awards from Romantic Times.
“I wrote my first twenty-two novels in longhand with a ballpoint pen—it’s hard to get good quills these days,” she says. Dragged into the twenty-first century by her son Matt, a telecommunication specialist, Shirl now uses two of those “devil machines.” Another troglodyte bites the dust. Please visit her at

In this story set in Montana in the 1880s, both the hero and heroine are sort of victims of a thoroughly ruthless man, Noah Sinclair. Noah hates and fears his half-breed son, Hawk. And with good reason, the old man has destroyed Hawk's Cheyenne mother, his first wife. When one of the other characters says something to the effect that the old SOB ought to be shot, Hawk says, "the only reason that old man is alive is because he's my father." And that's a lot more family feeling than Noah has for his son. He plans to use Hawk's lethal skills to protect his empire and then get rid of him. Also, Carrie is nothing more to Noah than the means of getting himself a white heir. As she grows stronger throughout the story and begins to stand up for herself, the old buzzard begins to hate her as much as he does his son. When she does her "duty" by him, Noah will get rid of her too. But that is not fated to be. In the beginning of the book, the medicine dream that they both share-although they do not yet know each other and are a thousand miles apart at the time-is a guarantee that the couple are destined to be together. I loved this book. My only complaint is that I would have liked to have learned a lot more detail about the Cheyenne way of life. Henke's books are really good at that sort of thing. But I have hopes. This is only one in a series of books that will touch on the Cheyenne. And by the way, a truly dynamite read.

This is the story of two outcasts literally destined by the stars to be lovers. Hawk possesses the handsome aristocratic features that probably belonged to his father as a young man before Noah Sinclair became this hateful, embittered old man. And from his Cheyenne mother, Hawk inherited this sexy coppery complexion. So he's an outcast because of his mixed blood. The heroine, Carrie, ironically, is an outcast because she's just too fair and beautiful. But you won't hate her for it. Her aunt and uncle marry her off to Noah because they don't want her around as competition for their own less attractive daughters. But far from being the opposites they appear, both Hawk and Carrie are survivors - tough and gutsy. Although they have a hard time doing it, they outlast a host of vicious enemies (including a dandy villainess, a real "bad girl") only to finally confront each other - their own worst enemies. This is a western, but not a typical shoot-em-up (although of course there is some of that). Rather, this is a relationship story of two young people obsessed with one another, a typical romance theme but here complicated by a cultural divide. A very good read!
