His family thought him dead. Returning home to confront his past, the bastard bandito, Hermano, finds a future he never dared to hope for. Book 3 of the Malloy family series. Hermano is more than the bandito you met in The Bounty. He's Malcolm Ross y Zarza half-Spanish, half-Scottish bastard son of a Texas hacienda owner who has hidden in the guise of a Mexican bandito for half his life. Malcolm left home at eighteen fueled by rage at his half-brother Damasco and the abuse he received at the hands of Damasco's mother, Isabella. Hermano returns home at age thirty-five hoping to find his mother, the Scottish cook that fell under the spell of Don Alejandro Zarza. But instead he finds his childhood friend, Leigh Wynne, a widow and owner of the neighboring ranch. Leigh is in heaven and hell. She finally has a chance to be with Malcolm, the man she's always loved, but someone is deliberately trying to destroy her ranch, and take her life in the process. Together, Leigh and Malcolm forge a bond to find out the truth behind the treachery and murder. Bullets will fly, and Malcolm and Leigh must stand and fight, for their love, their lives, and their future.
