When you gamble with desire, be prepared to risk everything.... Unlike the rest of the Hell's Eight brotherhood, Ace Parker's home isn't on the range. This restless cowboy craves the hustle of Simple, Texas, a lawless town where he can sate his darker appetites without guilt. At least he could until Petunia Wayfield arrived. The prickly new teacher is insisting that Ace help her rid the town of drunkenness and card playing. For that kind of miracle, Ace demands a reward the spinster schoolmarm will surely never give. But Petunia isn't backing down. Not when the intense passion Ace offers shatters her to the core.
As soon as she can afford a ticket home back East, she'll leave Simple behind for good. Until then she'll match his sensual challenge with her own, daring him to give up his fiercely guarded self-control. And then real danger claims Petunia, forcing Ace to reveal the man he really is - even if it drives her away forever....

This is Book 7 of the Hell's Eight series.
Not deep enough
Continuation of the series - I hate to be left hanging, so come on, Sarah...you gotta have one more for us! Yes, I love series books and getting invested in the characters and combined story lines for the long haul. Hell's Eight has been a favorite and I'm hoping the author will favor us with another trip out with the boys. While this wasn't my favorite book of the series, I did enjoy it.
Don't know why this doesn't show up as part of the series in the catalog listing... Story line was true to the series although I wish there had been more exploration into the dominance/submission plotline as it could have played out in that time and locale. I get that 50 shades was the flavor of the day and this story takes a wispy pass at that, but it was not as deeply explored as some of the other aspects of the slightly edgier things that the men of Hell's Eight enjoy with their women. It is the raw intensity of the sexual exploration that hooked me on this series.
And even though there are only original boys of hell's eight - Tia needs a book, too!
