New York Times bestselling author Catherine Anderson presents the first novel in her Comache series—a powerful historical romance about a man and a woman caught between two worlds… Orphaned seven years ago after witnessing the brutal murder of her parents at the hands of the Comanche people, golden-haired Loretta Simpson still lives in terror that the warriors will return—her fear so powerful, she is no longer able to speak a word. Called the U.S. Army’s most cunning adversary, Hunter of the Wolf believes that Loretta is the “honey-haired woman with no voice” of ancient prophecy—the one he must honor for all eternity. But Loretta can only see Hunter as the enemy who has stolen her, refusing to succumb to his control, or his touch. Despite the hatred intensifying between their peoples, Loretta and Hunter gradually find their prejudices giving way to respect, then flaring into feelings too dangerous to express. In the midst of such conflict, it will take all the force of their extraordinary love to find a safe place... From the Paperback edition.

"Mama," Jane's voice quavered, "I hear Injuns up on the roof. Can they come down the chimney?" So began one of the many dangers faced by Jane McGregor and her mother, Caroline, in Comanche County, Texas in 1872. A band of Comanche Indians captured two small neighbor children. Jane's father, Robert, and other area ranchers, had to find them and negotiate their release --avoiding bloodshed if possible. But there were good times, too. When she was 13, Jane's father gave her a beautiful roan mare named Clover, and the two formed an unbreakable, loving bond. Together they shared adventures and understanding. When Jane's brother, Allen, married Maggie under an arch covered with vines and flowers, Jane had a sister at last. She even caught the bouquet. By 1876, Comanche County had advanced and prospered, and the pioneer McGregor family grew and prospered with it. That same year, Jane fell in love and began planning her wedding.
