When I first picked up the book, I wasn't sure the Texas fight for independence and The Alamo was going to thrill me. Boy, was I wrong!! It just goes to show that any created situation can be successful and enjoyed if it is compassionate, well written and compelling. Ms. Sutcliffe gives us unforgettable characters in a unique setting with a forward moving ,active plot. I just loved the heroine and hero- Angelique Duhon and Alejandro de Bastitas. As their realtionship progresses the author leaves few emotions untapped. In this historical tale we have great elements of love, honor, family secrets, betrayal, loyalty, patriotism and war. The war threatens not only the love between Angelique and Alejandro but tests the strength and foundation of the De Bastitas family- a family torn apart by love and loyalty. Add to the mix murder,family betrayal and abuse and you have a thouroughly captivating novel.
Commanche terror on the Texas Plains. Alejandro is betrothed to another but cannot forget Angelique. But he conniot have because of the dark secrets of his past. Pas ions are a blazing inferno as Alejandro is needed to save his love.
This is the prequel to "renagade love". I loved them both.
