Two arrows hit the horse's neck and a third one in the chest as the mount under Gilberto fell. Gilberto stepped off just in time to gain an arrow into the joint of his left upper arm, almost at his chest. Night Hawk had found his target. The land called Texas may mean 'friends,' but it is anything but friendly. When Gilberto returns from Spain, he finds things much changed from the Texas of his youth. Some of his Indian friends have left the mission and seek vigilante justice for the white man's lies. When he finds Josefina, the Lipan Apache girl whose blue eyes he cannot forget, he is determined not to let her go this time. Their path will not be an easy one though. When corrupt local officials murder part of her family, Josefina and Gilberto must try to bring peace. In a land torn apart by strife, will their love for each other and God hold strong? Josefina's mixed heritage places her far beneath Gilberto's royal blood, and her tribe is filled with hatred of the Spanish. Can they overcome their cultural differences and build a life together? In a land controlled by The Spirits of the Sword and the Spear, can love prove itself to be the greatest force of all?

I tuned out the world and was in historic Texas. So much so that it was hard to put the book down and get back to real life. I love historic fiction with a romance and suspense thrown in for good measure! Can't wait for the sequel.
I read the book and could not put it down. From cover to cover I was eagerly turning pages to know what would happen next. This story is combined with the danger of old Texas West and giving everything you have for love. The author has researched history diligently and brought it all together. A handsome, gallant, Spanish prince in love with a spirited Native American and all the problems that brings. I found myself totally involved with the characters of that era and am hoping there will be a sequel.
