Love and Adventure...
Graduating from her prim Philadelphia finishing school, Anna Willow McKnight eagerly heads west to the wilds of the Kentucky territory where she will see her father, a Scots fur trader, and visit the place her lovely Delaware Indian mother, who died in childbirth, had called home. It is there, too, that the chestnut-haired beauty will be reunited with her beloved Stuart, the brave soldier-turned-schoolteacher, whose kisses ignite her with overwhelming desire.
In a Wild New World
Frontier life holds promise and peril far greater than any Anna could ever imagine, for the growing conflict
between native tribes and white settlers threatens to erupt in bloodshed. And in this untamed land is a sister Anna doesn't even know exists, a twin named Willow, hidden at birth and raised among the Indians. As settlers and Indians clash, fate will bring Anna together with her unknown sister...and lead her to a passion beyond her wildest fantasies.

Kay Cornelius is the author of nine novels. She has taught English and creative writing in Tennessee and Alabama and now writes full time. She is also president of the Alabama State Council on the Arts and an active member of the Dixie and Georgia RWA chapters. She and her husband, Don, live in Huntsville, Alabama.From Publishers Weekly:
In this post-Revolutionary War story, the identical twin daughters of a fiery Scotsman and a beautiful Delaware woman are separated at birth. Anna grows up in Philadelphia, while Willow is raised in a Shawnee village. Once Anna finishes her studies, she joins her father in Kentucky, where he settled after the war. Meanwhile, Willow is anxious to leave her village because of an ardent suitor who won't take no for an answer. She's on her way to a sister village in Kentucky when she comes upon the Shawnee warrior White Eagle and it's love at first sight. They marry quickly, but their happiness is cut short by the ongoing war between the Indians and the whites. During an Indian raid, Anna is mistaken for Willow and ends up with the Shawnee; Willow, in turn, is mistaken for Anna and is left behind with the whites. And so begins the chain of events that draws the two sisters together at last. Unfortunately, despite the clever premise, Cornelius's newest (after Love's Gentle Journey) contains little conflict or believable romance.
