Lady Alexandra Winthrop, the toast of London and beloved granddaughter of the Duke of Leicester, was an Indian captive. She had daringly traveled to the Canadian colonies to forget Dominic, the dark-eyed Frenchman who had showed her brief rapture - only to disappear and break her heart. Now she had plunged into a world of unimaginable brutality, facing a journey from primeval forests to war-torn Montreal, from a war chief's dark desires to the man who was her destiny...
Dominic Jolliet promised himself two things when he left Paris for the New World - respectability and revenge. He had never loved a woman before Alexandra Winthrop, yet her grandfather had called him a bastard, sneering at his royal but illegitimate birth. What Dominic wanted from the Canadian wilderness was its riches; what he found was Alexandra, her body imprisoned in a savage's arms, her golden eyes pleading for Dominic to save her, to take her, to make her his - today, tomorrow, and forever.
