In the USA Today bestselling Ralph Compton series, love can be the most dangerous frontier...
Hardened ex-gunslinger Taos Tommy Navarro turned away Karla Vannorsdell, a rancher’s granddaugther, when she needed him most. Now, angry and full of guilt, Navarro must track down Karla in the desert before the Apaches catch her, which won’t be easy. And all that’s certain is that things are going to get very rough—and very bloody.
Nothing will make Karla return to her arrogant, meddling grandfather now that he’s run off the vaquero she was going to marry. To bring her lover back, Karla will endure the parched, blazing desert, the venomous diamondbacks, the ferocious Apaches—and the buzzards circling overhead. And she’ll learn the cruelest lesson of all: In a brutal land, love can mean killing the thing you cherish…
