About the Book:

Marshal Caleb Maynard has been charged by the Order of Rules to fortify the Southwest town of Dalton against a possible annexation by the Kingdom of the Pacific coast. He is intelligent and disciplined, and would be wholeheartedly focused on building a mechanized defense system around Dalton, if only he could keep the erratic little wisp of a healer out of his mind, and out of trouble. Mirasol Sombra, town healer and spirit-talker, does not care for the big, rough marshal or his violent ways. It doesn't help that he mistook her for a witch the day he arrived and sent her to a pillory in the town square. But evil is streaming into Dalton almost daily, and the spirits are telling her to trust the marshal. The survival of her town and all its residents may depend on it.

About the Author:
