From the Spur Award-winning author of Summer of Pearls
When broken-hearted Honore Greenwood leaves New Orleans-and the woman he loves-to build a fort right in the heart of Comanche Country, he knows he has volunteered for a most dangerous project. With the Mexican War and the California Gold Rush bringing chaos across the plains, Honoree will have to work hard to earn the trust of the proud, powerful, and unpredictable Comanche people. But the vile whiskey trader Bill Snakehead Jackson is happy corrupting and breeding violence between the Comanches and their ancient enemies, the Apache. And when Honore's old love cries desperately for help, Honore will risk it all for the woman he loves.
