A silver mining heiress and a Texas Ranger find love on the run in this epic tale of romance and high adventure “bursting with the flavor of Mexico” (RT Book Reviews).
Aurelia Mazón is determined to escape her high-mountain town and head for the big city—even though her father owns the town silver mine. When he vows to send Aurelia and her mother to Guanajuato if the silver thefts continue, Aurelia sets a plan in motion to make her dreams come true.
But just when her plan begins to work, the unthinkable happens: a handsome Texas lawman is arrested for the thefts. Desperate to keep her big city dreams alive, Aurelia has no choice but to break the gringo out and escape with him into the Sierra Madres, where sparks fly between the two strong-willed strangers.
Chased through the Sierras by the Federales, Carson Jarrett realizes that his budding, passionate romance with Aurelia cannot come to pass: the Mazón family will never allow her to marry a gringo. But Aurelia’s indomitable spirit say otherwise—and Carson has never met a woman he believes in more.
