Publisher's Summary

Shadow Ochoa is lying low in the Kansas Territory, waiting for his fellow Texas Rangers—the Hell's Eight brotherhood—to clear his name. That is, until he's unjustly strung up for horse thieving... and pretty Fei Yen intervenes. Invoking a seldomused law, the exotic lady prospector claims Shadow as her husband and rides off with the bridegroom shackled to her buckboard.
Savvy, fearless Fei is singlemindedly devoted to her hidden claim and all it promises: wealth, security and freedom. A husband is just a necessary inconvenience and a name on paper to hold the claim she cannot.
Shadow isn't a man to take orders from anyone, especially from lovely Fei—except the friction between them ignites into nightly blazes of allconsuming passion. Soon Shadow is dreaming a little himself: of the life they could have if Fei could see past the lure of independence. If bounty hunters weren't closing in on him. If he's left standing when the impending showdown has ended....

The thrill has gone away...sorta

Well, nothing good lasts forever. This Hell's 8 story just didn't do it for me like the other previous 4 Hell's 8 stories. It wasn't as sensual and erotic. It didn't make as much sense or have as much depth. I never got how Shadow and Fei Yen fell in love. It was too fast and never explained. Even the attraction--at least to the degree required to want to stay married-- seemed unexplainable. And Shadow's desire to be committed to someone all-of-a-sudden just didn't make sense. Why Fei Yen? Why now? And if I don't hear "son-of-a-b****" again, ever, it'll be too soon! I don't have a problem with the phrase, just the monumental number of times Shadow says it one story. I was disappointed, but McCarty has given me much to enjoy over the previous 4. So she's allowed to not be 100% all of the time. No one is. I also haven't taken to her new Shadow Wrangler series. So I don't think it's me. I think something is changing in her writing, and the shift is making me wonder if I'll continue to be so excited and so quick to jump for her next release. Time will tell.

Best one yet!

I tried the Hell's Eight series, but after the third one, decided i wasn't going to continue. I don't mind steamy, erotic sex scenes, but the obsession with anal sex turned me off.
But when I saw that one of my favorite narrators was reading this one, I couldn't resist and tried it. I'm so glad I did, because it was the most enjoyable one yet.
