A Texas bride crosses Mexico in search of the man who stole her heart

His name is Maguire. Half Mexican, half Irish, he is equally at home at a society ball, at a cockfight, and on the driest plains of the Southern desert. Once he was an orphan, taken in by a Texas family that raised him until he was old enough to make his way in the world. He became a mercenary, battling his way across the South Pacific until disease and injury forced him home. There he reconnected with the lady of the house, Corinne, beginning an affair that destroyed her husband and forced Maguire back into the wilderness.

Twelve years later, he is a notorious adventurer, known as one of the most dangerous men in Mexico, and Corinne cannot get him off her mind. Accompanied by an American reporter, she ventures south to find the man she loved—a quest that will sweep her off her feet all over again.
