After Spirit Warrior leaves, Mole and his renegade Indians attack the Russler camp killing Denise's father. Spirit Warrior and his braves locate and attack a renegade camp. Spirit Warrior captures a unique looking horse from the Indians, but that steed happens to be one stolen from the Russlers. At first Denise believes Spirit Warrior sent the raiders, but decides her heart would not desire a villain and she wants Spirit Warrior with her every breath. As they share more adventures, the white woman and the shaman chief fall in love, but must overcome enemies who have other plans for the duo.

As expected from award winning Cassie Edwards, SPIRIT WARRIOR is a strong Indian romance. The story line focuses on the growing relationship between the lead protagonists in spite of external interference to the contrary. Denise's brother is a unique character as he fully accepts Spirit Warrior as his brother. Though the heroes are too perfect and have little personal conflict between them, the love between Denise and Spirit Warrior turns this western romance into a stirring read.
