Nick Red Shield, who is Sioux, comes across an injured white woman in the bushes. He thinks he’s
responsible, and offers her shelter. The woman is travelling under an assumed name, as her son
has been kidnapped by his father. The woman, Lauren, turns out to be a former jockey; she and
Nick fall in love, and Lauren starts to work his new paint horse, True Colors. However, Lauren still
has a mission: to find her son.
Kathleen Eagle is a writer of romances. Born in Virginia, and raised “an Air Force brat”, she was educated at Mount Holyoke College and Northern State University. She taught for 17 years, and is the author of over 40 novels. Her first, in 1984, was a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award winner. At least two of her books have a horsey theme: it’s quite possible there are more.
Finding the books: easy to find: both appear to be obtainable new on both sides of the Atlantic, and there are plenty available secondhand.
