Those of you who will read this, i just want to let you know that the new book called desperado by rebecca b. is the same as this one. it is a wonderful story of a woman with untold strengh. she leaves her home of new york to come to texas and live with her senile old grandfather, where she meets her grandfather's godson judd whose parents may have been married, but he was just a bastard. she also meets judd's and gramp's enemy, rigo. rigo is kind of the answer to araminta's prayers. i say that because he kind of rescues her from judd, but the reason he did it is not so noble. he is a little too commanding for my tastes, but he is perfect for her.
