Thirteen years later, Assiniboine Chief Storm Rider visits Blue Thunder on a quest for peace between the two tribes. Storm Rider knows of the fierce warrior reputation of Talking Rain, but that pales to the real person. When Talking Rain tries to steal Storm Rider's horse, he captures her. While he keeps her his prisoner, an attraction between them surfaces. However, a snake in the grass plans to destroy the fragile peace wrecking havoc on these two tribes whose unity is symbolized by the love between Talking Rain and Storm Rider.

Though STORM RIDER contains the typical Cassie Edwards background, the theme is somewhat different, as this is not a novel of star-crossed lovers, but more of the prisoner-warden variety. The story line is filled with a feel for the era through mostly the eyes of the Native American tribes as Ms. Edwards does what she is so good at providing insight into a culture interwoven into her plot. Ms. Edwards' innumerable fans will enjoy her latest nineteenth century Indian romance as she once again gives sub-genre readers what they want and more.
