In 1846 Montana Territory, Trader Joe's daughter Marissa McHugh and Cree Chief Night Wolf meet for the first time when he makes some young bucks return stolen potatoes to Father Mulvaney. The two of them are instantly attracted to one another and could easily be in love at first sight. Both know they cannot acquiesce to their feelings. He must marry a Chippewa that will lead to an alliance that will help keep his people safe. Her father pressures her to marry a military officer from nearby Fort Harris.

As Night Wolf and Marissa struggle to do the right thing, she learns a biological family secret that shakes her to the core. She turns to the man she loves for solace. Now their passion is out in the open, but Night Wolf has a duty to perform that is more important than his personal feelings, making it impossible for a permanent relationship with the woman he loves.

Though the resolution of Night Wolf's dilemma occurs too easily and the plot lacks conflict between the lead couple (all troubles are external), fans will enjoy Cassie Edwards' latest Indian romance. The story line provides deep insight into the Cree lifestyle in the mid nineteenth century while also providing a well developed love story. Long time fans of Ms. Edwards will welcome NIGHT WOLF.
