"Special Author's Cut Edition - a Matthews/Hampshire Novel Originally published by Ballantine Books Daniel "Fox" Matthews received the 1992 K.I.S.S.

An absolutely wonderful read." ̃ Kathe Robin, ROMANTIC TIMES Daniel "Fox" Matthews, sent to Little Bighorn by the president to keep an eye on the hot-headed General Custer, is haunted by guilt for a battle outcome he couldn't prevent. The raucous gold town of Deadwood, South Dakota seems like the perfect refuge, even though it's located in the Black Hills, sacred land to the same Sioux Indians who massacred Custer's troops. Madeleine Avery, raised to be a lady in Philadelphia, is horrified when she arrives in Deadwood with her family. Slowly she unbends, coaxed out of her shell by a powerful attraction to Fox and a journey into the world of the Sioux Indians. FIREBLOSSOM is a fascinating story of cultures colliding and the bittersweet, tender journey of Fox and Maddie as they discover the secrets of their own hearts.

Cynthia Wright’S book Fireblossom is a sweeping historical novel that includes Custer, Crazy Horse, Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane, Deadwood, gold prospecting, Chinese living in Deadwood, soiled doves, saloons, and a prim and proper lady that ends up in Deadwood. There is a wagon trip across open country and a stay with an Indian village with the man she loves. A half-sister to find, bad guys to thwart, gunfights and more are presented as sidebars in this story of Madeleine and Dan. In some ways more of a saga than a novel but a simple love story all in all. ( )
