    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 diViere.

    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.
