Some dangerous souls lead lives like loaded guns.
Captain Samuel McCord is such a man. His nature was that of a poet and a philosopher. Until the day he witnessed his family dying in a Comanche raid.
Violence and death have stalked him since that day. Then, becoming blood brother to a not fully human Apache shaman, further changed McCord.
By 1853, he has become a pariah among the Texas Rangers, given assignments with certain death. Traveling the world, McCord saves Princess Victoria's life, sets Napoleon III on his throne, and fights on both sides in the Chinese Opium War. Every crown prince of Europe and the Orient has set a bounty on his life...
Then, the one thing he never expected comes into his life, love. Love in the deadly form of an alien, born of stardust and the sea. McCord can fight any enemy, but can he survive the love of a deadly goddess?
