Black Otter, Lenape
chieftain, swore he’d return to his
children, his land, his life. There was little to value in the white
man’s realm— except for one regal, openhearted woman of courage.
Rowena alone gave him strength and hope—
awakened the possibility of love.
Rowena Thornhill knew
nothing of passion, her days being filled instead with study and family duty.
But when she joined her fate with that
of “her” captive, Black Otter,
her proper English life became a
whirlwind of danger and desire.
