Political intrigue sets the stage for the War with Mexico. The last thing an army officer needs on a secret assignment is a nosy civilian, especially a woman with troubles of her own. A clash of wills results when a merchant's daughter insists on involving herself in Major O'Donnell's scheme to smuggle arms during the Texas Revolution. He may have the authority of the military behind him, but she owns the freight wagons, and they're not rolling anywhere without her. Who can they trust? The riverboat gambler, the Cajun with the fast knife, or the exiled Spanish Royalist with dark secrets of his own? Secret enemies endanger their quest from New Orleans to St. Louis, and spies dog them along the Santa Fe Trail to the wild frontier where few have ever laid eyes on a white woman, and it's hard as the devil to tell friend from foe.
