They were a crack team of Confederate raiders, striking behind enemy lines under cover of darkness, operating with one mind, one heart. Until one of their number betrayed them all. In the aftermath of tragedy, they swore they would live to hunt down the traitor. But to each, life would bring first a woman and then a revelation: Far sweeter then revenge is love.
Cade … Captain of the Night Riders, he led the survivors home to Texas to make a fresh start. His grandfather still lived, his ranch still stood, and waiting there was a dark-eyed temptress who made him all too glad to be alive. When he took Pilar in his arms, his blood surged hotly and he felt like the wild young man who’d once abducted her for a lark. But the war had changed them all and now he would allow nothing to come between them – not her family, not his heritage, not even her turncoat of a brother.
This is the first book in the Night Riders series.

Very good story. Worth the $3.99 268 pages
The Night Riders series is very good. Texas Homecoming, Texas Pride, and Heart of a Texan was my favorite, but read all of the series.
I am a devoted fan of Leigh Greenwood but I was disappointed in TEXAS HOMECOMING. The plot line was repeated over and over with no new exciting ''twists''. I plan to read the next Night Riders books - hopefully they will be more exciting!!
By 1864 Confederate Captain Cade Wheeler is tired of the war and the successful raids he has led. Perhaps his wariness is born of the treachery suffered by Cade and his men when one of their alleged most loyal followers diViere betrayed them, leaving many dead from the Northern ambush. The war is over so Cade leads the survivors back to their Texas home to start anew in a radically different world. However, foremost in most of their minds is vengeance on diViere. Cade takes over his family ranch from his feisty grandfather. Already staying at the spread is diViere¿s sister Pilar and their grandmother because squatters have forced them out of the family home. Cade plans to use Pilar to get to diViere, but as Cade and Pilar argue they fall in love. However, she is the sibling of the person he detests so much that he wants to personally kill the man. Leigh Greenwood raises the heat and tension with his latest tale, TEXAS HOMECOMING. The story line is loaded with action and two strong lead characters. Cade struggles between his obsessive thirst for vengeance and his need to nurture his beloved. Pilar is a fiery individual who loves her captain, but when she learns why he courts her, all hell breaks out. Few authors provide a vivid descriptive Americana romance filled with realistic angst-laden protagonists as this author can. Harriet Klausner
