Twenty-five years later, Larry seems to have only one goal in life, to defeat his older sibling at everything though Troy always wins. This time it is cards and Troy wins everything including Larry's mail order bride Angela Dawn. When Red Feather and Soft Flower return to their people accompanied by Angela, Jon goes ballistic vowing vengeance and an acrimonious Larry sees the opportunity to defeat his hated sibling.

With over thirty “Savage” novels, award winning Cassie Edwards is one of the all time leaders of Indian romances. Her latest tale, SAVAGE DESTINY, is a chip off the old block, which will please the author's appreciative readers.
