Endorsed by best selling frontier romance authors Laura Frantz, Shannon McNear, and Michelle Griep, Bent Tree Bride provides it all for readers--swoon-worthy romance, intrigue, and the struggle for honor as the excitement of the frontier collides with a forbidden romance. One man fights to prove his inner warrior and scholar can co-exist while one woman struggles to guard her heart.

Susanna Moore can't get him out of her mind-the learned lieutenant who delivered the commission from Andrew Jackson making her father colonel of the Cherokee Regiment. But the next time she sees Lieutenant Sam Hicks, he's leading a string of prisoners into a frontier fort, and he's wearing the garb of a Cherokee scout rather than the suit of a white gentleman.

As both Susanna's father and Sam's commanding officer, Colonel Moore couldn't have made his directive to stay away from his daughter clearer to Sam. He wants a better match for Susanna-like the stuffy doctor who escorted her to Creek Territory. Then a suspected spy forces Moore to rely on Sam for military intelligence and Susanna's protection, making it impossible for either to guard their heart.

Review quote

Bent Tree Bride is an intriguing story of love and family set against the backdrop of the War of 1812. Susanna, daughter of a white captain, is promised by her father to wed a man she doesn't love. Sam, a mixed-blood Cherokee, struggles to understand his ancestors' long-held customs. When Susanna and Sam fall in love, they are forced to grapple with clashing cultures that threaten to keep them apart. Denise is a masterful storyteller who weaves fictional characters with historical events to touch readers' hearts while presenting enlightening glimpses into our nation's past.
