In the early morning of March 6, 1836, the Mexican army storms the Alamo and kills every one of the
defenders except William Barret Travis's young black slave named Joe. Although General Santa Anna
vows to keep him alive, a fearful Joe escapes away in the night carrying a prize far more valuable
than anything inside the creaky Spanish mission.
Fast forward to September 2013. Joe's modern descendant, a 93-year-old World War II veteran living
alone in Brewton, Alabama is dying after being attacked by intruders. With his last breath, the old
man defiantly shouts, "Come and take it!" And with his death, the last living person who knows
about Joe's prize is gone forever.
While investigating the old man's death, grandson Nat uncovers clues about a long-hidden secret
dating back to the Alamo. With the help of a beautiful history professor named Renee, Nat begins to
unravel the mystery of his grandfather's murder, and in the process discovers another mystery of
far greater scale--the long lost treasure of the Alamo.

I don't have any - that's not a very common subject.

I like the off-limits ex, like in this story. Also, I like when there's a connection
between two people who are supposed to be "enemies" or rivals.

Forbidden love between close cousins whose relationship is
meaningful and misunderstood.

I too like the enemy or rival forbidden love. I haven't read a well written step-sibling story, but would like to read one.

I like love stories between rivals or between aristocrat
and commoner or rich and poor.
