“Cynthia Wright magically intertwines passion and history.” ~ RT Book Reviews
HAUNTED BY GUILT
Sent to Little Bighorn by President Grant to keep an eye on hot-headed General Custer, Fox Matthews must live with a decision that left him alive after the rest of Custer’s men were killed by Sioux warriors. Struggling with survivor’s guilt, Fox takes refuge in a place where he’s a stranger – the raucous gold town of Deadwood, located deep in the Black Hills, sacred land to the same Sioux Indians who decimated Custer’s troops.
BECOMING A WOMAN
Madeleine Avery, raised to be a lady in Philadelphia, is appalled when she arrives in unrefined Deadwood with her family. Slowly she learns to bend, coaxed out of her shell by a powerful attraction to Fox and a journey into the world of the Sioux Indians.
IN A RENEGADE’S EMBRACE is an unforgettable tale of cultures colliding and the passionate, tender journey of Fox and Maddie as they discover the secrets of their own hearts.

Fox Matthews is a ROMANTIC TIMES WINNER for K.I.S.S. HERO OF THE YEAR!
“Wright weaves history and fiction together skillfully. Maddie is a proper lady who must learn to unbend. Fox is the presidential adviser who’s undercover and left with survivor’s guilt after he survives the Battle of Little Bighorn. Like ‘Dances With Wolves,’ IN A RENEGADE’S EMBRACE paints the Sioux as an idyllic people faced with the end of life as they know it. Wright creates sympathetic Indian characters and populates Deadwood with an array of real-life eccentrics. IN A RENEGADE’S EMBRACE again shows why Wright is one of the country’s most popular romance novelists.” ~ THE SIOUX FALLS ARGUS LEADER
