    The Apache raiders killed her husband Alan. Though the grief has somewhat faded, a tired Abigail Madison raises their two children and runs the Flying M Ranch near Arivaca, Arizona with just the help of her two kind servants. The whites murdered apache Chino Whitehorse's family. He follows the spirits in his dreams seeking to avenge the deaths of his beloved family.

    His visions send Chino to Abby's ranch, but she wants this reminder of death to leave yet he acts so differently than the Apache killers of her beloved spouse. When he learns the identity of the individual pressuring Abby to sell her ranch, Chino offers to help her save the place because that same man ordered the execution of Chino's family. As Chino and Abby warily work together, they fall in love, but can they overcome the mistrust and prejudice each one feels for the other's people. Then there remains that odious common thread willing to do anything to own the land.

    APACHE DESTINY uses the lead female character to provide a fresh look at a common story line by having Abby make the first overture to the reluctant Chino. Abby owns the tale as a courageous and robust individual who goes after what she senses is right for her, her family, her memory of Alan, and her new beloved. The plot is well written though the villain adds little to a strong historical romance that is at its best when the magnetic energy of love flows between the lead couple.
