When her father, chief of the Gypsies died, headstrong Etti lost her status, but none of her spirit. She’s the first woman to race her horse in Marseilles. She survives attacks by her drunken brothers, the very men who should have protected her, and she’s turned the head of Rafa, a delicious Gitano Gypsy from Spain with a tantalizing sense of adventure and breathtaking passion. She dares to break all the rules to pursue Rafa—and the exciting life she craves.
It will not be an easy journey. Sprightly and free-spirited, Etti has struggled to meet the behavioral demands and limitations of women in this time of travel and discovery—but failed.
As the tribe travels through the pristine Provence countryside for its annual marriage meeting, Etti is the least desired bride. She fears that the all-male council will match her to a domineering man from another tribe.
Then Rafa arrives and sparks a passion in her that surpasses the nightly tribal bonfires. The feeling is mutual. Unwilling to sacrifice his dreams for horse breeding, he has chosen not to wed—until he realizes that, in addition to the heart-stopping passion thjey share, he and Etti share the same enthusiasm for horses. Their romance splits the tribe, endangers her life and inspires Etti to fight for her own future in a time of total male dominance.
