(From the publisher):
Hondo Lane was a man who'd come to terms with the hard land in which he lived. On the way to deliver an important message about an imminent Apache raid, he came upon an isolated ranch, defended by a lone woman and her young son.
But Angie Lowe wasn't just any woman. She, too, had carved out a place in this hard and beautiful land, and she wasn't about to leave it without making a stand - for her beliefs, her son, and for the future.
With the forces of history swirling around them, Hondo and Angie will have to protect themselves against an uprising led by the great Vittoro, a noble Apache driven by his own fierce code of honor - and another, far more ruthless enemy, driven by hatred, greed, and jealousy, who'll betray any principle, commit any atrocity to destroy them all...
