Running from the past, Quinn had no intention of becoming entangled with the haughty female who hired him to guide her down the Camino Real to Santa Fe. So much for good intentions. The raven-haired beauty was an enigma at best, at worst a fatal distraction. Elise's cool violet eyes betrayed none of her secrets, but her warm, willing body came alive under his touch. She mystified the renegade. She would risk imprisonment by the Spanish, capture by the Indians, and death in a tornado, but she would not risk her vulnerable heart. Eventually, the only thing Quinn was sure of was that, in spite of his enemies and hers, he would make this elusive, mysterious, maddening creature the...

    If you like books with strong heroines, you should love this one.

    The year is 1807 and Elise Lourois, a spy for the president, is on an unauthorized mission to find her younger brother who is also a spy, and to possibly stop a war between Spain and the United States. She hires a reluctant Santiago Quinn, the White Apache, to take her to Santa Fe. Before she can leave St. Louis she is almost killed by a couple of assassins but is saved by Quinn. She soon returns the favor when Quinn is in a fight to the death with another killer. She jams a pistol in the man's back and blows a hole in him. On the trail across the plains, as the adventures become more exciting and dangerous (a tornado, a visit to an Osage village where Santiago is almost killed) the sexual tension between Elise and her renegade builds to a white-hot pitch. These two characters, cautious, cynical and worldly, are a wonderful pairing. And the story abounds with intrigue and quirky characters like Santiago's partner, Spy Buck, a Muskogee Indian who speaks with a flawless British accent. Henke delivers an exciting read with passionate, interesting lovers.
