DRAGON’S BLOOD: Book Three in the Dragon & Hawk series

      The massive influx of Anglos to the Arizona Territory by 1904 has brought a flood of people with inflexible, bigoted attitudes.  Jamie Jones strongly resembles his Mexican mother, marking him as a target for racial bias and taunts – and leading to frequent fistfights.  But he also has his Welsh father’s stubborn persistence: he refuses to give up on winning the attentions of Iris Crawford, an alluring young Anglo woman newly arrived from Meadville, Pa. 

      Percy Kindall lives a privileged, lavish lifestyle in San Diego – until the horrible morning he discovers his father has put a pistol in his mouth and pulled the trigger.  The only clue to his father’s last act lies in a letter sent to a Reyna Jones in Tucson, A.T.  His journey to comprehend his father’s suicide leads to far more than Percy bargained for. 

      Unaware of greedy machinations by the beautiful Miss Crawford, Jamie and Percy’s lives intertwine, connected by destiny – and Dragon’s Blood.
