Summary

"Day Crosser" highlights a poor migrant farming family from Mexico looking to escape the ruthless violence of the drug cartels. With a baby on the way, the couple hopes to start a new life in America – free from the fear and retribution by local crime lords. 
A parallel storyline follows a recently discharged Afghanistan veteran suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and his journey for normalcy for his wife and young daughter. After being rejected for a career as a border patrol guard, he's persuaded to join the local militia group headed by a retired LAPD police officer with a questionable past.  
When these opposite worlds collide on a hot, desert mountain overlooking the Mexican/Arizona border, tragedy ensues, followed by an empathetic display of humanity and mercy.

    For close to three thousand years the imposing, impossibly handsome Santo Notte has fought in armies across the world and battled his own, more personal enemies. Of all the places he might expect to encounter his life mate, a quiet corner of upstate New York doesn’t seem likely. But as soon as he makes contact with history professor Petronella Stone, while hunting down a suspected rogue immortal, he knows that she will be the greatest adventure of his eternal life. 
    He expects her to be surprised, confused, even overwhelmed. What he doesn’t expect is that Pet has a secret history of her own. There’s no mistaking the mind-blowing, mutual pleasure they share. But as Pet struggles to protect her nephew from a danger lurking too close to home, Santo realizes there’s another threat to her safety—him. And claiming their passionate future will be impossible until he leaves his past behind, forever…
