Elizabeth Johansen lives her life by a specific code of values. She has worked hard to obtain everything she owns, and she wants nothing from anyone. But now, she faces a dilemma when an unexpected inheritance from her Great-aunt Edna forces her to reexamine her values and embrace the culture she has long since forsaken.

Rohan is the son of an Athabaskan chief. At twenty-six, he is more focused on amassing his fortune and preserving the land of his ancestors. So, when he learns the large parcel of acreage adjourning his property has been left to a woman who has no interest in preserving their customs, he sets out to convince her to sell.

But Rohan finds the independent beauty irresistible and sets out to win her. Elizabeth, proud and self-sufficient, soon discovers that the man of her dreams is part of the culture she abandoned. Can they each find a way to meet the other halfway between his life and hers?

Secret, Pulsing Romance…The Bearwalker’s Daughter

~The strange awareness inside Karin grew, like a summons urging her to an untamed place. His gaze drew her almost against her will. She leaned toward him.

“Someone seeks you,¬†Shequenor’s¬†dahnaithah.”
The message rippled through her. And she knew–his was the inviting summons in¬†the wind.~
Karin McNeal hasn’t¬†grasped who she really is or her fierce birthright. A tragic secret from the
past haunts the young Scots-Irish woman longing to learn more of her mother’s¬†death and the mysterious father no one will name. The elusive voices she hears¬†in the wind hint at the dramatic changes soon to unfold in the mist-shrouded Alleghenies¬†in Autumn, 1784.
Jack McCray, the wounded stranger who staggers¬†through the door on the eve of her twentieth birthday and anniversary of her¬†mother’s death, holds the key to unlock the past. Will Karin let this handsome¬†frontiersman lead her to the truth and into his arms, or seek the shelter of¬†her fiercely possessive kinsmen? Is it only her imagination or does someone, or¬†something, wait beyond the brooding ridges–for¬†her?

(The Bearwalker’s Daughter is a revised version of romance novel Daughter of the Wind)
