|Plot Summary of White Deception|
Leisure, Nov 2004, 6.99, 321 pp.
In the Dakota Territory, three years have passed since the fatal barn fire killed her spouse of a few hours and left half-breed Mathilda Morning Moon O'Brien blind and unable to see visions. The nightmares that haunted her at first when she realized her husband died trying to rescue her stopped for a while, but have just returned as if the spirits are trying to communicate with her.
The new visions are more like what she used to “see” and quite different from the immediate post fire nightmares. In several of them Mattie observes half breed Reed Robertson, a bounty hunter who has embraced his white side fully. Reed has come to the area seeking to bring to justice the surviving two murderers who killed his wife. Though he wants to refuse to help Mattie save her family ranch from nasty people, Reed cannot resist her lure. As they work together and their similar situations merge into one case, they fall in love, but the enemy is powerful and has killed their loved ones without regret several times already.
