Together in the hills, Pilar and El Leon find their wills in constant battle and their hearts in secret accord.
I love this novel in Jennifer Blake's Louisiana History series. Each novel is a stand alone story and yet all tie in to the same period in history. l like the intricacy of each plot and the characters are fascinating.
