"Great post Civil War Romance"
By 1864 Confederate Captain Cade Wheeler is tired of the
war and the successful raids he has led. Perhaps his
wariness is born of the treachery suffered by Cade and his
men when one of their alleged most loyal followers diViere
betrayed them, leaving many dead from the Northern ambush.
The war is over so Cade leads the survivors back to their
Texas home to start anew in a radically different world.
However, foremost in most of their minds is vengeance on
Cade takes over his family ranch from his feisty
grandfather. Already staying at the spread is diViere's
sister Pilar and their grandmother because squatters have
forced them out of the family home. Cade plans to use
Pilar to get to diViere, but as Cade and Pilar argue they
fall in love. However, she is the sibling of the person he
detests so much that he wants to personally kill the man.
Leigh Greenwood raises the heat and tension with his latest
tale, TEXAS HOMECOMING. The story line is loaded with
action and two strong lead characters. Cade struggles
between his obsessive thirst for vengeance and his need to
nurture his beloved. Pilar is a fiery individual who loves
her captain, but when she learns why he courts her, all
hell breaks out. Few authors provide a vivid descriptive
Americana romance filled with realistic angst-laden
protagonists as this author can.
