Love and cultural values collide.
Forty-year-old Braden Elkhorn has everything a wealthy, successful man needs—except a wife. As the oldest of four brothers (none of whom are dating Native American women), he feels an obligation to help preserve his Cherokee heritage by marrying a Native American woman. His problem? He’s fallen hard for a shy, full-figured, African-American beauty.
Neida Armstrong can’t seem to get love right. Her first love left her to teach in third world countries. After ending a relationship with a second man who felt more than she did, she meets and instantly falls for Braden. To her dismay he only wants a summer fling. Landing him will require her to fight for him.
