9780061376016: Awaken My Heart (Avon Inspire)

1803, the colony of Texas Marianne Phillips, the daughter of a wealthy rancher, has never agreed with her father's harsh treatment of the poor mestizos who first inhabited the colony of Texas. When rebels kidnap Marianne, in hopes her father will trade back their land for her freedom, she realizes her loyalty lies with her abductors, not her father, who plans to marry her off to the don of a nearby estate.

Armando Garcia is the locals' reluctant leader, but his people revere and depend on him. Knowing that without his leadership they'd be forced from their land, Armando accepts his role, but does not approve of the latest attempt to manipulate their enemy. When he learns that Marianne actually speaks his language, of her loyalty to his people, and of the faith that keeps her strong, Armando is faced with a difficult decision. Will his newfound love keep him from letting her go? Or will he set her free and risk losing their land forever?

From the Back Cover:

Can two people hold on to their love and faith in a world that considers them enemies? Set in 19th century Texas, Awaken My Heart tells the story of Marianne Phillips, the daughter of a wealthy rancher. Weston Phillips is in the midst of a struggle with the 'mestizos' who have long held the land that Phillips now claims to own. His insistence that they abandon their homeland leads to a rebellion. When the rebels kidnap Marianne, in hopes that Phillips will trade the land for her freedom, she meets the infamous rebel leader, Armando Garcia. Unaware of what his people were plotting, Armando hates that the struggle has come to this. He arranges for Marianne's escape, but not before becoming enchanted with this brave young woman who has taken it upon herself to learn his language and whose faith seems to guide her through the most difficult situations. When Marianne returns to her father, Phillips' only concern is that the man who has promised to marry Marianne, an eldery don of a nearby estate, will still have her as his wife. When Marianne runs into Armando while out riding one afternoon, she cannot escape the joy that she feels upon seeing him again, and it is clear he feels the same way. Yet as Armando learns to lean on the faith that keeps Marianne strong, they must ask themselves how much they are willing to risk to give their love a chance.
