In the sequel to Comanche Moon, a devastating loss drives a woman to seek revenge. But she never expected to find love along the way. After a Comanche war party kills her husband and infant son and steals her young daughter, Annie Bryce has nothing left to live for. Held captive herself by a brutal warrior, merely surviving every day is the only act of defiance she can muster. Haunted by guilt for not preventing the Comanche attack on the Bryce family, Texas Ranger Hap Walker is surprised when he stumbles across the captive Annie three years later. Hardly recognizing the beaten down woman at first, he eventually brings her back to the "civilized" world, where she's met with scorn and gossip by the townsfolk suspicious of her survival. Free of her bonds, Annie finds a new reason to live with the realization her daughter is still missing but alive. Hap agrees to accompany her through treacherous Indian Territory, hopeful to be a part of the new life Annie struggles to build. In a time and place of savagey and splendor, a saga of passion and courage comes flaming to life.
