Wounded and left for dead, Blue Hawk is prepared to die even though it means abandoning all hope of avenging himself on the white men who betrayed him. While waiting for death, he receives a startling vision before losing consciousness. On awaking, he finds himself being tended by the white woman in his vision.
When he's strong enough to return home, Blue Hawk steals a horse and takes Kaylee with him, intending to trade her back to her family for weapons for his tribe. But somewhere along the way, distrust turns to love and attraction turns to desire, leaving them to wonder if they can heal old hurts and find a way to bridge the differences between them.

However, Kaylee takes to the lifestyle of the Lakota, leading to happiness for these star-crossed lovers. However, her people are coming to not only rescue her, but to destroy his. The warm romance between the stars of LAKOTA LOVE STORY is set amidst a panoramic look at the Lakota nation as only Madeline Baker could so vividly describe the era. The story line is exciting; never slowing down as the action continues non-stop throughout the plot. Though the characters are typical of the sub-genre in terms of extreme prejudice or tolerance, the lead couple is a charming pair. The author bakes a powerful novel that sub-genre fans will appreciate. Harriet Klausner
