Breed True, the next story in my journey through the Old West, involves two unlikely lovers who make an unwholesome pact with each other. Grady Hawke is a half-Kiowa rancher who finds his land ownership being challenged because of his Indian blood.
Julie Fulton Rossiter is a gambler's widow who has finally discovered something more important than herself--her twin daughters, Amethyst and Emerald.
The things people will take a chance on. Hmmmm...Grady Hawke bets on the red-haired ancestry of his father, a Scottish immigrant, to cover his Kiowa blood. He proposes that auburn haired Julie, marry him and let him breed a son from her.
With questions about her involvment in the death of her recently deceased husband threatening to separate her from her children, Julie agrees. And in so doing, she wagers her life that she can handle the ruthless savage she takes to her bed. And, as they say, there lies the tale.
