A kidnapped young woman finds she has nothing to fear but her own heart
The toast of Chicago society at eighteen, Martay Kidd is too wild to be satisfied with a life spent in parlors and ballrooms. Bored with the big city, the slender beauty hops a westbound train to join her army general father in the frontier country of Colorado. But when she arrives in Denver, she becomes the unwitting target of a Sioux warrior named Night Sun, who seeks revenge against Martay’s father for slaughtering his family years before. Night Sun abducts the general’s daughter, stealing her away to a world that is far rougher, and far more exciting, than she could have ever imagined.  Though stubborn, strange, and violent, Night Sun is no match for the fiery Midwestern debutante. And it will not be long before the mistress of the ballroom has him dancing to whatever tune she calls.

About the author (2012)

Nan Ryan (1936–2017) was an award-winning historical romance author. She was born in Graham, Texas, to Glen Henderson, a rancher postmaster, and Roxy Bost. She began writing when she was inspired by a Newsweek article about women who traded corporate careers for the craft of romantic fiction. She immediately wrote a first draft that she refused to let see the light of day, and was off and running with the success of her second novel Kathleen’s Surrender (1983), a story about a Southern belle’s passionate affair with a mysterious gambler. Her husband, Joe Ryan, was a television executive, and his career took them all over the country, with each new town providing fodder for Ryan’s stories. A USA Today bestseller, she enjoyed critical success the Literary Guild called “incomparable.” When she wasn’t writing, she was an avid sports handicapper, and a supporter and contributor to the Shriners Hospitals for Children and Juvenile Diabetes since the 1980s. Ryan passed away peacefully in her sleep, surrounded by her proud and loving family.
