Bad luck has driven half-breed Yakima Henry and Sheriff Jack Kelly into the town of Dead River during a severe mountain winter-where Yakima must weather a killer who's hell-bent on making the town as dead as its name.
Breaking horses in Arizona Territory, Colter Farrow is forced to kill a soldier in self-defense, sending him on a wild ride to Mexico where he helps the wild Bethel Strange find her missing father. But there's an outlaw on their trail, and the next ones to go missing just might be them...
Colster Farrow was just a skinny cow-puncher when the men came to Sapinero Valley and murdered his best friend, whose past as a gunfighter had caught up with him. Now, Cole must strap on his Remington revolver, deliver some justice, and make a reputation of his own.
Before he rode a black stallion, young Yakima Henry was a scout for the Arizona cavalry outpost Fort Hell, so named for its unforgiving desert locale and the many fearsome dangers that were all but routine….
When Chiricahua Apaches attack a stagecoach bound for Fort Hell, Yakima Henry and fellow scout Seth Barksdale rush to defend it—only to discover that one of the fallen Apache is a blond-haired, blue-eyed white boy. This is shocking news to the fort’s commanding officer, Colonel Ephraim Alexander. Years ago, his family was kidnapped during an Apache attack, and his desperate search was cut short by orders to evacuate. If this white Apache warrior is his son, can his wife and daughter still be alive?
The colonel charges Yakima and Seth to lead a search party. Riding as far as the forbidding Shadow Montañas in Mexico, they come up against a ruthless warrior queen—a beautiful blond white woman with cornflower blue eyes. Can this unlikely leader of the fierce Winter Wolf People and a pack of ex–Confederate desperadoes actually be the colonel’s long-lost daughter? As bullets fly and blood paints the desert red, Yakima and Seth grow ever more determined to find the truth.
Half-Cheyenne and half-white Yakima Henry won't tolerate incivility toward a lady, especially the comely former widow Beth Holgate. If her new husband doesn't stop giving her hell, Yakima may make her a widow all over again.
Yakima Henry has been dealt more than his share of trouble—even for a half-white, half- Indian in the west. Now he’s running a small Arizona horse ranch with his longtime love, Faith, and thinks he may have finally found his share of peace and prosperity. But his violent past is about to come calling.
Bill Thornton still carries the wound from where Faith—once his most valuable “entertainer”—shot him just before being carried away by that low-down breed Yakima. And the roadhouse proprietor, suffering from a bad case of blood poisoning, still carries a heart full of hatred for the both of them.
That’s why he’s sent a gang of sadistic bounty-hunters to ventilate Yakima and bring Faith back to him. And that’s why Yakima’s long-awaited peace will have to come at the end of a long, hard killing trail.
