Accustomed to a pampered lifestyle, Olivia St. Etienne dreams of love and romance despite her guardian's desire to seek an advantageous marriage for her. When her guardian sells her to the very man she thought she might be falling in love with, Olivia does the only thing she can-- she runs away. Unfortunately for her, she ends up in the very place she doesn't want to be, with Samuel Shelby. Worse still, she has to rely on him to protect her. Colonel Samuel Shelby is a married man and knows better than to fall for a spoiled young French girl. His work has always been his refuge and he is anxious to get on with his mission of making peace with the Osage Indians. But his marriage is a sham and there is something about the willful Olivia that makes him throw caution to the wind. More than once they are brought together by fate and Samuel can't resist the temptation Olivia offers. As opposite as day and night, Samuel and Olivia are destined to be together, but first they must survive the dangers and deceptions they face. Shirl Henke has woven many fascinating characters - some of them historical figures - into a tapestry that is Deep As the Rivers. Readers might remember Samuel Shelby from one of the author's earlier books, White Apache's Woman.

She changes point of view frequently and often incorporates several scenes into each action-packed chapter.

Shirl Henke is a master at creating memorable characters and passionate love scenes! A richly textured historical romance!
