Shanndel Lynn has lived all her life in the white world. Then a group of Shawnee stop in town to spend the winter, and when she glimpses their handsome chief, Panther, she is instantly drawn to him. She knows she has to meet the dark stranger, for he awakens her senses as no white man ever could.
When Panther first sees the Indian maiden, he thinks she is a vision of his dead wife. Once he realizes she is real, he longs to take her in his arms. They are from different worlds -- and enemy tribes -- but Panther knows that she might be the only one who can turn his tears of sorrow into sighs of... SAVAGE JOY.
