Desert Willow by Patricia Beal
After a failed engagement, Captain Andrew Lee James has focused on building a career in the Army he loves. That commitment includes helping a feisty, out-of-work ballerina whose devotion to her grandmother’s dying wish immediately grabs his heart. She’s the one, but will he be able to win the heart of a woman who has vowed to never be involved with a soldier?

College graduate Clara Malone swore to never love anyone in the military again but when her dying grandmother asks her to deliver a love letter to the general who broke her heart decades ago, she agrees and finds herself escorted by a handsome Army captain whose kindness challenges her beliefs. Surrounded by desert willows that shower her path with pretty pink flowers and sing with the buzzing of hummingbirds, Clara enjoys the wild beauty of El Paso—and her time with Andrew—more than expected.

Can she deliver her grandmother’s last love letter without losing her heart to a man who represents everything she fears?

GUEST POST : Top 5 Things to do in El Paso

  1. Watch the El Paso Ballet Theatre at the Magoffin Auditorium at UTEP. Walk around UTEP while you’re at it 😉 

  2. Visit the El Paso Zoo. Not too big, not too small. Just perfect.

  3. Visit the Placita Santa Fe and eat at The Magic Bistro. Go to Tippi Teas too!
  4. Watch the El Paso Symphony Orchestra (or anything) at the Plaza Theatre.  I don’t own any images of the interior, but hold your jaw and click here to see what I mean: Spanish Colonial Revival architecture at it’s best. Totally wow. My little girl was 7 when we went to the Plaza for the first time. She asked me, “Mom, is this a palace?” 😊
  5. Go to the west side via Scenic Drive and See the Star on the Mountain. You can have it light up for a cause or a person without even being there. I should have it light up for Clara and Andrew! Details here:
