In 1836 Texas, Alandra Sandoval is the lady of Rancho Sandoval, determined to prove to a doubting world that a woman alone can run a ranch as well as any man. But when Comanches attack her ranch and kidnap her, Alandra must admit she needs protection. A top hand at a nearby ranch, Scully Falconer, is chosen for the task and though Alandra tries to pretend she doesn't need his help, he quietly stays by her side.
Though they believe their paths to be worlds apart, the rugged American cowboy with a troubled past and the proud lady of Mexican descent are united when Alandra's greedy relatives burst into their lives. And when General Santa Anna's army crosses the Rio Grande—marching toward a rendezvous with destiny at the Alamo—Alandra and Scully are swept up together in the tide of history...and their world will never be the same.
This is the second of the Texas star of Destiny series. I love learning about history and these books have taught me alot about how Texas became a state. I never realized Texas was part of Mexico and at one stage the Mexican government invited people to come and settle Texas as most Mexicans didn't want to ranch there (I know its more complicated than I just said) I also love how the Alamo is mentioned and how Lyn has included real people from the day. I found the story very interesting and wanted to know what will happen. I can't wait till book 3 comes out.
this was one of my Birthday books (I had been given gift vouchers and this was on my list to buy)
