Robbed and beaten by outlaws, stagecoach guard James Colton vows justice and recovery of his grandfather's watch. Determined to find his heirloom, James hunts the outlaws, only to face an immoral sheriff who gives him no choice but to shoot.
It's 1860 in southern New Mexico. Border Ambush exposes the American Southwest for what it really was--rough, tough, and brutal.

"Melody Groves has created a couple of characters, James and Trace Colton, that you'll really care about. She spins a Western story that reads like a Western should--full of hair-raising adventures and some really bad villains." —Bill Pinnell, author of Terror on the Border
"The action never flags, and Groves has surely found her true calling...her cast of characters, their habits and idiosyncrasies is distinctly rich and right-on. A rip-snorting adventure yarn." —Albuquerque Journal review, October '09
