Meet Buck. Spirit brother, dreamwalker, shaman’s son—he’s never been at the mercy of his abilities nor hungered for violence…until her.
When the spirit fever struck a town, a village or an outpost, it left few, if any, survivors. The white man blamed the Indian saying they used their mojo on them. The Indians blamed the white man for angering the spirits. The survivors knew it didn’t matter. The Fevered were forever changed.
Rebuilding Dorado is only the first challenge…
Surviving a vicious attack by their enemies and an outbreak of the fever has left Dorado in ruins and the Flying K under siege, now all their resources are devoted to rebuilding their town and protecting the newborn Fevered in their midst. Buck Morning Star and his siblings divide their time between training their new family members and avoiding the threat of detection the arrival of soldiers constructing a new fort pose, but Delilah haunts the spirit walker’s dreams. When Jason Kane threatens to come between them, Buck’s obsession may drive him to madness.
Her secrets could destroy them all…
Rescued from a whorehouse in Fort Courage, Delilah Rinaldi never expected to find a sanctuary populated by Fevered and their allies. Silent since her arrival at the ranch, she longs to believe in Buck and the passionate dreams they share. But she keeps dangerous knowledge of the enemy hunting them all close to her heart—information Jason may reveal and cost her the only home and man she loves.
Primitive, primal and provocative, their struggle is intensely personal…
Close contact arouses a soul-stirring passion and love. But it may not be enough to sustain a relationship forbidden by their power and the tempest it can unleash.
His dream. Her words. Their destiny.
This is not your typical western series. This is a complicated, plot twisting, hold your breath adventure.
Buck has been attracted to Delilah since she came to the Flying K. She never speaks, but he has occasionally heard her softly humming to herself. Unable to help himself he enters her dreams and listens to her sing. He becomes enthralled and Jason who was in her mind kicks him out of the dream.
Here is a favorite passage as Buck tells the others of Delilah’s powers.
“Because her power lies in her voice. She sings and anyone who hears it falls under her spell. I don’t know whether it’s a devotion to her that makes you want to do anything for her or she can implant other ideas, but it’s the most enchantingly beautiful sound you’ll ever hear.” The admission left him mildly embarrassed, but he’d had time to think on his reactions. He went into her dreams because he liked her—because he wanted to know her better—not because of her song.
The song made him want to go back.
“So she sang for you?” Skepticism ruffled Cody’s expression. “Out of nowhere?”
“No. She sang in her dreams.” Jimmy worked his knife against a piece of wood, whittling it into some shape only he could see. “Brother dreamwalker, there, was peeping.”
Scowling, Buck bit back a retort. Hard to deny the truth. “Why would you spy on her?” Scarlett, however, had no problems taking him to task.
“I wasn’t spying.” Buck ignored Cody’s nudge to Jimmy and Jimmy’s quick, amused grin. “I felt bad for her. She seemed very lonely, she wouldn’t talk, and we didn’t know what happened to her after Kid and Cody sent her on the journey from the New Mexico territory. So I wanted—I wanted to get to know her better. I thought maybe in her dreams…”
“She would be more comfortable.” Surprisingly, Sam saw his side of it. “Not an unfair assessment. But if her voice is enchanting, I take it you’re under some kind of duress now?”
The question brought everyone’s attention to him and Buck shook his head slowly. “Not anymore. When she realized what was happening, she did—something—sang me free? I’m not sure I entirely understand it. I will ask our father about it tonight after we talk.”
“You’re sure you’re okay?” Scarlett’s censure shifted to concern.
“I’m fine.” He gave her what he hoped was a reassuring smile. “Honestly, my feelings for her remain what they were—concern. I want to help her. I told her we would help her.”
