Major Jim Garrity needed a clean slate. After being unjustly court-martialed for the murder of four Yankee soldiers and narrowly escaping the hangman's noose, he sheds his identity and heads west to live among the Apache. As Shatto, he finds solace among his adopted brethren. But the new influx of settlers and soldiers into the Arizona Territory spells danger for the Apache people.
Independence Taylor blames herself for bringing the small pox into her home that led to her mother and brother's deaths. Abandoned by her grief-stricken father, she undertakes a dangerous journey to join him at his military outpost to beg forgiveness. En route, her military escort is attacked by Apaches. She has been advised to take her own life rather than be captured, but Shatto intervenes before she can pull the trigger.
Indy's initial fear of the mysterious Shatto is tempered by the bargain he strikes with her father to subdue the warriors by training a select group of troopers in Apache warfare. Imbued with the power of the wind spirit, Shatto attempts to bring peace to the troubled land.
As tensions mount between the settlers and Apache, so does the undeniable attraction between Shatto and Indy. Can the would-be lovers broker peace...or will chaos rule and destroy their burgeoning passion?
The Seeker was inspired by the true story of the Camp Grant Massacre of 1871, the blackest day in the pages of Arizona history.
Ginny Sinclair didn't know anything about the Southwest or Apaches—except that both were wilder than she ever dreamed. Newly arrived in Tucson to help her father start a newspaper, Ginny had a lot to learn, especially from Bonner Kincaid, an army interpreter. The townspeople called the tall, handsome half-breed Apache trouble, someone to be feared. But Ginny saw a different man, one who filled her with troubling emotions, raging desires and a need to write the truth even if destroyed her.
Empowered by the wind spirit, Bonner Kincaid vowed to help the Apache face the inevitable: defeat and surrender. Only then could the Apache and the white man live in peace. His attraction to Ginny Sinclair was a surprise he didn’t see coming. He was quick to believe she would write the same old lies and was even more surprised when she went out of her way to write the truth.
Bonner knew the risks of loving a white woman and was determined to stay away from her, but Fate kept bringing them together until neither could deny their passion or their love.
Tucson was a town gone mad with hate, a town ruled by greed and prejudice. Would love be Bonner and Ginny’s destiny or their doom?
