Kathleen Eagle's compelling novels of unexpected love and powerful passion have touched the hearts of countless readers. Now, this award-winning writer has created her most unforgettable novel yet — a tale about the love between a man and a woman of very different backgrounds, who find common ground in their determination to do what's right ... discovering love despite all the odds.

Kole Kills Crow . . . his name was once on everybody's lips and his determination to fight for the rights of Native Americans — combined with his movie-star good looks — had once made him a media darling. Women loved him, and the television cameras couldn't get enough of him. But after a disastrous brush with the law and the tragic death of his wife and child, Kole left it all behind. He'd been betrayed by his closest friend, and he knew that the "accident" that had befallen his family was really meant for him ... so he dropped so far out of sight that it was as if he'd never existed at all.

As a reporter, Heather Reardon has learned to expect the unexpected ... and to look for the truth behind the masks so many of her subjects wear. For years she's been seeking to discover the truth about Kole's disappearance, but when she finally finds him in a run-down bar, she is shocked that the outspoken hero of her idealistic fantasies claims he wants nothing to do with his colorful past. But Heather knows that he's lying....

Soon, animosity gives way to unexpected passion, bringing Kole and Heather ever closer together. She is determined to turn him back into the man he had once been — proud, fierce, and afraid of nothing. Then the time comes for Kole to reclaim his place in the public eye as he encourages his friends to take a stand for what they believe is right.

At first, they're just a ragtag group of Native Americans who have banded together to travel from the isolation of the reservation to the bright lights of Los Angeles. But as the small group travels across the land, they gain support along the way. Kole, thrust back into the spotlight, must face down the demons that have haunted him. And Heather must make the decision of her life — can she stay at the side of a man who will never be completely hers?

You Never Can Tell is a story for anyone who believes that love can overcome all the odds. It's a book you'll never forget.

Kole Kills Crow is a perfect romance hero—brooding, dangerous, "other"—cast in the same mold as a gypsy from the wild moors, or a rogue who is no longer received in Charleston.
