Will the man of mixed blood save her life, or will she save his?
When Sarah Collins sets her sights on California for a new beginning, she never dreams a war party will attack the wagon train she travels on. She and her new-found friend Molly are the sole survivors, but when Molly succumbs to her injuries, Sarah is left alone to find her way back to civilization. While trying to mount a stolen horse, she suffers a rattlesnake bite that threatens to accomplish what the Indians failed. Is it her time to die or does Sarah have a purpose she's yet to discover?
Now, Sarah awakens in modern day Manhattan, a dream so real in her mind that tears still dampen her cheeks. The goodbye kiss she shared with Grey Wolf (Nathaniel Elder) still burns on her lips. How could a dream cause her heart to hurt so much? Imagine her amazement when she answers a knock on her door and finds the man from her dream is a new neighbor coming to borrow a cup of sugar. She remembers everything about him, even his name, but there isn't even a flicker of recognition in his beautiful hazel eyes.
Here's my six for the week:
“Nathaniel Elder.” Sarah Collins leaned her elbows atop the manuscript spread across her desk and rested her chin between her raised palms. Her editing chore forgotten, she stared into space, picturing “Wolf’s” handsome face and puzzling over the amazement that led him to her doorstep directly from a dream so real she awoke with tears still wet on her cheeks.
“Something wrong, Miss Collins?” A brusque voice sliced through her thoughts.
Sarah jerked upright and stared into the face of her supervisor, Mr. Crane, who stood in her doorway, his unibrow crooked upward with piqued curiosity.
