Set against the mountains and high plains of northeastern New Mexico during the decline of Spanish power in the New World, The Double Cross is a story of loss and love regained. A widower, Marco Mondragon lives a predictable life, working as an inspector of livestock brands spending his days among the cattle. Occasional raids by the fierce Comanche Indians interrupt the steady flow of work, but Marco is sensible and always avoids unnecessary risks. Once a year, his work takes him to Santa Fe. In the autumn of 1780, his journey brings more than just business - it brings the prospect of romance and great danger.

Paloma Vega is young and beautiful, but she is being used by cruel relatives. Marco suspects that Paloma's uncle may have stolen a brand from her deceased parents, forcing the pair to contend with many challenges that threaten their safety.

Life becomes less than predictable for Marco Mondragon as he works to change Paloma's fortune while the ever-dangerous Comanches become a more dangerous problem.
