The Soviets consider telepathy to be a crime, but are willing to use Rinn's talents for their own benefit. She helps them repair their trade relations with alien merchants. Rinn's job is complicated by the telepath Enclaves who brand Rinn as a renegade and demand that she returns to their rigid control.

In The Devil's Crescent, hardened bounty hunter Diego Montoya descends upon a small Texas village in the midst of a cloudburst and boldly plunges into the life of beautiful, small time cattle rancher, Maggie MacNaughton. Diego is a man haunted by a past filled with death and disappointment, a nobleman fleeing from the dictates of his demanding father and an arranged marriage. When a U.S. Marshall asks Diego to infiltrate a gun runner's operation, Diego reluctantly agrees, shadowing the powerful land baron, Morgan Lansing. Morgan's efforts play into the hands of a group of Mexican nationalists, who quickly claim the land vacated by the terrified settlers until only one parcel stands in the way of their march toward the border -- the one occupied by Maggie MacNaughton. Diego and Maggie match wits and wills as the danger mounts. Only their reliance upon each other has the power to save them from a swift and certain death.
