Men of the White Sandy: The Complete Series - Men of the White Sandy
Publisher: Sarah M. Anderson
Welcome back to the White Sandy, where the cowboys are the Indians, but they also drive pickup trucks, have cell phones and occasionally advanced degrees. Change is coming to the White Sandy reservation--will the men of the Lakota tribe find their place in this new world with their women by their sides?
The Medicine Man: The White Sandy Reservation needs a doctor, and Madeline Mitchell needs to do a little good in the world. It seems like a perfect fit, until she meets the medicine man, Rebel Runs Fast. As far as Madeline can tell, Rebel's sole mission is to convince her patients that modern medicine can't help them. And the fact that he makes her heart race every time he looks at her only irritates her more. Rebel's never met a woman like Dr. Mitchell. He tries to convince himself that his tribe doesn't need her, but when patients start getting sick with strange symptoms, he realizes that he needs her more than ever.
The Rancher: Mary Beth goes west to start over as a large-animal vet.

Fascinated by the masked cowboy and drawn to defend the girl, Mary Beth finds herself in the middle of a decades-old power struggle that only she could talk her way out of.
