Hayden certainly knows how to take the reader on a roller-coaster ride with plenty of suspense and surprises. Also, nice tension in the romance department. A twist around every corner.

Hayden once again delivers a story for our time – a battle of wills over Native American culture and the universality of love. Characters to cheer for and a trail worth the ride. Read it.
