Product Description

In Across Borders, Lawson Caine, an eight year veteran of the Border Patrol, is stationed in Presidio Texas with legendary lawman Capt. James Garrett. Lawson, who is from a long linage of lawmen, has gained the respect and reverence from his team, Dale Chanson, Terry Bennet, and the crazy member, Alex Sweeny. Together as a team their mission is to protect the US by patrolling the borders of Mexico for illegal aliens and the never ending drug trade.
James Garrett, who goes by the name Cap, has trained many young rookies from the academy and served as a father figure before turning them over to other stations within the four states that border Mexico. Their greatest task and personal vendetta is to capture a famous smuggling lord who is barbaric and callous leaving many Mexicans to die in the rugged terrain of West Texas. Over the last few years Lawson and Sweeny have built a brotherhood and together they work through the struggle of Sweeny becoming a widower and raising his eight year old daughter all while keeping a guarded eye on the border.
Lawson never expected anything to come between his dedication with the Border Patrol and his brotherhood with Sweeny until he meets local pharmacy owner, Lia Gonzales. Against her father’s wishes and the dissension she causes with her family Lia continues to see Lawson not realizing the inevitable consequences. Love blind, Lawson leads his team into a dangerous situation with Lia’s brother, who works for the smuggling lord, and loses more than his relationship with Lia.
Will Lawson see the mistake he is making by continuing a relationship with Lia? Will Lia defy her father and keep a deep and passionate relationship with the Border Patrol Agent? In this story of protecting others on the border and the heartache of relationships you will find yourself in the lives of those who have sworn to uphold the law, no matter the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserving of the 5 stars 20 July 2017

I rarely give 5 stars...
I was only a few pages in and two things crossed my mind
I am gonna love this
Someone is gonna die and I won't like it
I was right on both thoughts.
This was a super fast pace thrilling road across the dusty roads of Texas and Mexico.
I immediately feel in love with all the characters. Back to those first thoughts. I knew one of them wasn't gonna make it to the end. A very small part of me didn't want to find out who. But another
part the bigger part didn't want the story to end.
Even at the very end I wished that there was more.

The subject/plot of the book is about Texas Border Agents fight against immigrants and the despicable Coyote's that prey on the poor people that are trying, praying and willing to do anything for a better.
About 3/4's in the is a part that describes a ritual that the Coyote's
perform. It is graphic in nature. But the subject is unsettling because it is true and really happens.

There is way more to this plot/story than the fight to control the borders.

There is a reverence and respect to God that I was not expecting.
Although the main character Lawson and a few his buddies played basketball on Sunday instead of going to church. (until a couple of girls 'lured"them into the services) And didn't really have much of a practising faith their Captain 'Cap' who considered the 5 men on his 'team' encouraged them.

This underlying theme made the book even that much more appealing to me. I love suspense. I love thrillers. And I love romance. Across Borders was much more than I expected it was a story filled with suspense and romance and was just a great book to read.
The best party? The good guys win.

The publisher places Across Borders in the categories of Fiction/Thriller/Crime. The book is available at online retailers.

I would like to see the book available also at CBC and at christian book retailers as well.

I received a complimentary copy from Lola's Blog Tours.
5.0 out of 5 stars Reality gets an A+ 11 June 2016

Wow! What a story. This book is chock-full of realism through the action, detail, and emotion of being a border patrol agent. Lawson, Cap, Sweeny, Dale, and Terry sure had their hands full. Lia and Erica had an interesting part in the story. Leah's complex family was an integral part of what happens. I especially liked her grandmother. Her dreamcatchers add authenticity to her Medicine Woman ways. Grab a pile of tissues as once you get to a certain point, you will need them 'til the end. So good.

ARC provided in exchange for honest review.
5.0 out of 5 stars If you enjoy a suspense 9 February 2016
By Alexia Janie Evans - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"Across Borders" by Lee DuCote is my first read by this author but it will not be my last. If you enjoy a suspense, love, novel you will really enjoy this book. We have Lawson Caine who has been working for the border patrol who gets involved with Lia Gonzales who owns a local pharmacy in Presidio, TX. There is a problem with their love story in that Lia's brother works for a drug Lord, and that will cause problems with Lawson and his fellow border patrol agents. This is just one aspect of the nook. There is so much to this story that it deserves to be read.
