The beautiful and tough tempered Vicenta Rigores is one of the most respected and feared “coyotes” of the border between Mexico and the United States. While U.S. officials have a warrant for her arrest, the other coyotes competing against her for business want her dead. One Homeland Security official in particular is following her path very closely. His name is Daniel Roberts. This honest, noble and rigorous man has one thing is common with the notorious coyote who risks her life daily to guard the individuals she helps across; he too defends his territory and fulfills his duty to those he protects.
Vicenta despises drug traffickers, never suspecting that she belongs to one of the most powerful drug-trafficking families of northern Mexico. She is the illegitimate daughter of the deceased Vicente Acero and half-sister of Salvador Acero, who keeps the family business alive following in the steps of his late mother Sara Aguilar de Acero. Vicenta will join his business in order to avenge the death of her mother. Her dominion of the lands and her ways make her invaluable to the trade. Her last name could be a salvation or a death sentence, but all that is clear now is that she is the new, and only, Señora Acero.
