(Iroquois Series, #1)
Leslie Michaels is a visionary, and only those close to her know of her special gift and visions. Fate has a way of righting many wrongs, and for Leslie it is a destiny that changes her life dramatically, but not before she is forced to flee into the wilderness to escape a murderous trapper bent on claiming her for his very own.
Faith and a strong will to survive are her only companions, until she encounters Winnokin, the handsome Seneca war chief, who first came to her in her dreams. Not only does he prove to be her rescuer and protector, he teaches her that tragedy can breed happiness and the passion to live and love deeply once more.

A poignant tale, CAPTIVE HEART, the second book in talented author Cynthia Roberts' IROQUOIS series, is a warm, passionate historical romance that will transport you back to colonial America. This tale of spiritual rebirth and passionate love gives insight into the Indian people, who are often thought of as savage, but in reality only seek to peacefully coexist with the white man. There are lessons that we could take from them. They live off the land, not depleting it, but honoring it and live close to their God, thanking Him for their blessings and seeking His guidance in their every action. This beautifully written story will touch your heart as it gives a perception into another way of life. By combining love, passion, hatred, danger, spiritual guidance, kidnapping, violence, remorse, Indian customs and legends as well as second chances, Ms. Roberts has penned a story that is unforgettable. Whether you are a fan of colonial and Indian romances or not, I believe you will enjoy this story. This book can be read as a standalone, but for additional enjoyment, do not miss the first book in this series, WIND WARRIOR, the tale of Winnokin and White Dove. I recommend CAPTIVE HEART and look forward to reading more of Cynthia Roberts' works.
CAPTIVE WARRIOR -
(Iroquois Series, #3)
There were certain standards the beautiful, Mohawk maiden Mayla was expected to live up to as the daughter of their powerful Tribal Chief. Showing kindness to a sworn enemy, was certainly not one of them. But, when she faces saving the life of a wounded brave over letting him die, she chooses compassion over hatred.
Washke, is a handsome and virile war leader of the Quendake (known as the Huron by the French). He awakens, finding himself under the care of an enemy shaman and medicine man instead of experiencing a torturous death at the hands of his captors. It is a surprising turn of events, but one he is extremely thankful for. Time proves his greatest challenge as he battles whether to seek out his own people and the sister he misses and adores, or stay and conform to the customs of the woman who has captured his warrior heart.
Their journey together does not prove easy as centuries of hatred between their two warring tribes creates a wedge that seems impenetrable. Time has a way of healing much, and they create a bond, strengthened by understanding, patience, passion, and a love so strong, even hatred can not pull them apart.
