Clover could give in to the little girl forever and feel secure but unfulfilled, or fight every day for that balance between the woman she needs to be and the little girl she longs to be. Can she do both? Would he let her?
When her protector abandoned her to go into the Army, leaving fourteen-year-old Clover Sweet Medicine to go through high school virtually unsupervised, she felt as though her spirit had died. She survived the loss, and now she is eighteen and graduating. However, grad night turns into a life-changing event, complete with an arrest and loss of adult status. Suddenly, Clover needs a guardian, and the tribal council chooses the only person who cares enough to make her follow the rules: Jared. Will he be willing to reassure the little girl inside and still want the woman outside?
Jared Little Fox is a man of his word, and when he left to join the Army, it was to gain skills, a college degree and to earn money. He was going to fulfill his destiny with his tribe, and he was going to marry Clover Sweet Medicine. He tried to explain all this to Clover before he left but she’d turned a deaf ear. Now he worries that four years might have been too long, considering the changes in his girl. His Clover is a woman-child who is out of control, angry, scared, reckless, and desperate for love. She has lost all the security he had worked so hard to give her, ensuring she was happy, safe, and healthy since her early childhood.
Now, instead of letting them start their adult lives together, the council wants to kick her off the reservation. They charge him with the task of saving her once again – or else. He claimed her once. He could do it again. But will Clover be able to submit to a man she proclaims to hate? Can Jared help Clover find her security, see that he is her only hope for freedom, and she his only path to happiness, before it’s too late?
