Titles By A.W. Hart
Concho Ten-Wolves is a Texas Ranger working the Rio Grande border between Mexico and the U.S.. His father was black, his mother a full-blood member of the Kickapoo Traditional Tribe of Texas. He remembers neither of them. Both disappeared soon after Concho’s birth and his Kickapoo grandmother raised him on the tribal reservation just outside Eagle Pass, Texas.
Often bullied as a youth for his differences, Concho soon grew into the promise of his big hands and wide shoulders. Hatred of him remained in some; fear joined that emotion in others. Concho learned to walk a solitary path, which first took him away to college and then to Afghanistan as an Army Ranger.
Now, a group of Neo-Nazi terrorists have taken over a mall in Eagle Pass. One hostage is the woman Concho loves. The only path Concho can see is straight ahead and through.

He settled that score and now he’s headed home for the Kickapoo reservation in Eagle Pass, Texas where he lives. His Captain doesn’t like him and has suspended him without pay. He’s riding a Greyhound bus and all he wants at Christmas time is some peace. He’s not going to get it.

Not on his watch!

He considers himself completely alone, with no close blood relatives, and he’s content with that.
Until…an invitation comes to meet a near stranger in New Orleans. The stranger shares a rumor, Concho’s mother might still be alive. Concho is a trained skeptic; he doesn’t believe it. But he has to check it out, and now people are trying to kill him to keep him from asking questions.
They can hunt Ten-Wolves all they want – he won’t be stopped.

He plans to one day flee the beatings delivered by his hulking older brothers and lazy pa. But he knows if he does, he must take his twin sister Abby—who is not always right in the head—with him.
He gets his chance when River Hicks, a man wanted for the murder of a policeman in Fort Worth, rides in with a pack of bounty hunters on his trail. When the gun smoke clears, Connor has killed men for the first time, but he also knows this is his and Abby’s time to escape their life of abuse.
