Mary C. Findleyabout this book: I wanted to write about the Southwest because the desolate beauty there still inspires me, even though I only lived there six years over twenty years ago. I love a dose of romance, mystery and suspense, too, and having a kind of "mail order bride" heroine who steps into an assassination attempt with her brother as the prime suspect appealed to me.
This also isn't a dry, perfect inspirational romance or a stereotype western. I've got men who cry, a bowie-knife versus cavalry saber battle, and plenty of knocking down pride and self-sufficiency. The hero spends most of the book flat on his back and the heroine only sees him three times before the climax.
The cover is a tribute to Santa Fe and the two strong female characters in the book, rather than a stock photo of a romantic couple. I researched southwestern culture, how often firearms really were and weren't used in the "wild west," and had a Spanish language consultant help me put in some Hispanic flavor.
