Azrael Thunder Horse has spent a long time looking for a suitable Native American Studies teacher at the reservation's school. So when he hires Cheyenne Red Wolf, the last thing he expects is a feisty redhead without a drop of Indian blood in her. When trying to fire her doesn't work, he instead invites her home and offers her a place to stay until she finds her own place, since she just moved to town. Although he's sworn off Anglo women, he's finding it harder and harder to keep his hands to himself. Good thing she seems to be having the same problem, even though she's made it clear she doesn't like him very much.
Cheyenne can't believe how drop-dead gorgeous her new boss is. Too bad he shattered her fantasy by opening his mouth. The nerve of him, trying to fire her because she's not a real Indian! Still, she can't help but fantasize what all that browned skin would feel like as she runs her hands over that sculpted chest. Despite his prickly attitude, she can't help but feel that she's seen him before somewhere. Oh, well. Maybe a hot and heavy interlude or two with him will help jog her memory.
This was a hot quick story about two people that dislike each other at first, before taking the time to learn about each other's past. Azrael used to be a famous movie actor, who nearly spiraled out of control until he quit and got his act together. All Cheyenne ever wanted was to be an Indian, but her red hair says otherwise. Prejudices must be overcome before they can move forward. It was fun watching the two flounder around trying to figure out the intensity of their feelings. Good book.
