After the debacle of his failed military career, Sam forgot his dreams and headed to Texas where he became an Army scout. Roxana headed west, too, trying to prove herself as a cub reporter. She hoped to gain an interview with the revolutionary Pancho Villa, but there was much competition from reporters gathering to report on Mexico’s insurgency.
Together, Roxana and Sam take on the Mexican desert and the rebel army.
This is a well-written tale of adventure and reluctant love set in a time of revolution in a foreign land. Bonds brings you right into that time, and you see the beauty of the Sierra Madre mountains, the Mexican desert with its blowing sands, heat, and vicious Indians and revolutionaries, and the meager rations of an army on the move. Some historic figures are characters, including General Pershing and Lt. George Patton, both of whom would become war heroes in the years to follow.

Sam wanted the sweet, manipulating Rowena, but what a man like Sam—a leader of men—really needed was a woman like Roxana. And he found her in the Mexican desert with a view of the Sierra Madre Mountains. You’ll love this story, I promise!
