The daughter of a wealthy rancher, Marianne Phillips has
never agreed with her fatherâ€™s harsh treatment of the
mestizos who first called Texas their home. When
she is kidnapped by rebels who hope that her father will
trade back their land for her freedom, Marianne realizes her
loyalty lies with her abductors, not her father, who plans
to marry her off to the don of a nearby estate.
Armando Garcia is the localsâ€™ reluctant leader, but he does
not approve of the latest attempt to manipulate their enemy.
When he learns that Marianne actually speaks his language,
of her loyalty to his people, and of the faith that keeps
her strong, Armando is faced with a difficult decision. Will
his newfound love keep him from letting her go? Or will he
set her free and risk losing everything?
