Summary (From the publisher):

Born from a cursed line, Talli of the Turtle clan of the Jeaga is unworthy to marry her love Akoma, son of the Turtle cacique and future leader of the clan. But Talli allows herself to dream of becoming Akoma's wife. Until, under threat of an enemy tribe, the Turtle must strengthen their alliance with another Jeaga clan, the Panther. Talli is given to a Panther warrior, while Akoma is forced to choose a Panther woman as his wife.

Though heartbroken, Talli realizes that her sacrifice may be a way to redeem her shameful legacy. She fulfills her duty to the spirits, but never stops longing for the touch of Akoma. And when the Panther cacique betrays the Turtle clan in a reckless quest for power, Talli must risk her new life and family to save the only man she has ever loved...
