Cheyenne, WY (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
Sonoran Rage, Melody Groves' compelling novel of warring Apaches, U.S. Army troops determined to kill them, and the Colton brothers trapped in between, is now available in bookstores and through the University of New Mexico Press' Web site at http://www.unmpress.com, announced Mike Harris, publisher for La Frontera Publishing (http://www.lafronterapublishing.com).
Stranded in the rugged Sonoran Desert, stagecoach drivers James Colton and older brother, Trace, are captured by Apaches. Tortured and driven to the breaking point, James is used as a bargaining chip by the great Apache Chief Cochise. James will die if Trace can't win freedom for Cochise's brother, imprisoned by the Army. Trace rushes to negotiate a trade, but a glory-driven Army lieutenant has other plans--attack Cochise and his warriors at Apache Pass. It's New Mexico Territory, 1861. Tempers rage across the Sonoran Desert, and blood stains the sand. Will the Colton brothers survive?
"Melody Groves takes readers on a memorable adventure into the Sonoran Desert," said Cotton Smith, author of several Western novels, including Blood of Bass Tillman. "Unexpected plot twists, realistic descriptions and vivid writing keep you on edge--and turning the pages--as young stagecoach drivers James and Trace Colton face Cochise and his Apaches in a life-changing challenge for survival."
Sonoran Rage is one of the novels in the Colton Brothers Saga.
"This is the second book in Melody Groves' gripping series about the Southwest frontier during the 1860s," said Harris. "Sonoran Rage, a Colton Brothers Saga, is historical fiction that will keep you turning pages, and we at La Frontera Publishing are pleased to bring another of her Colton Brothers novels to fans of the American West."
