With this instalment in the series McCarty brings together some very different cultures and outlooks on life to create a brilliant, racy, and intriguing tale. In this one Hell’s Eight wasn’t all guns blazing all the time. The audience got to see some compromise and reconciling of differences but it was still a very captivating and racy read. Personally, I loved seeing a bit of a Dom/sub relationship in a historical romance. It took me by surprise as I didn’t see it coming but it fit with the characters perfectly.
There’s lots of character development in the first few chapters of this novel. It slows the story itself down a bit, but allows for a brilliant, exciting story once we get to know the main cast. The shocking contrast between Quakers and the extreme version of the Texas rangers really adds to the intensity of the story. Seeing Tucker and Sally Mae overcome their differences and decide they are stronger together was heart-warming amidst the chaos they found themselves in.
As a whole this was a story that I couldn’t put down. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it and can’t wait to see and read more.
I didn't mind the "thee's" because that is how the Quakers spoke in those days. I just wish her stories had more story and less sex. Sex in a story is the icing on the cake a good writer like Jeanine Frost/Amanda Quick/Beverly Jenkins/Julie Garwood/Mary Balogh just to name a few know how to build a story and sprinkle the sex in but focus on developing the characters. Other wise it is just erotica. Which has its place but it is not romance. I like this story what there was of it. The second half had more story then just the physical aspects in it. I want to finish the series but I find myself fast forwarding through the sex to get to the story and that makes it less valuable to me. I enjoyed this one the best so far. But not sure if I will continue. My recommendation would be if you are seeking more erotica and less story this is a good book for that. But seek out one of the above authors for a real good romance.
Hell's 8 has great potential for multiple story lines and has been gripping enough to want to read to see how the others fare in their own story lines. But this one - just killed me to listen to and to read!! First off - the relationship between them really didnt hit the heart strings tugging that it needed and that was offered in the first two. Additionally the steamy scenes to me were really more of today's genre then in the year these were about. It really was a turn off for me. Lastly, the narrator really ruined it..... perhaps i was spoiled by the narratory for Sam's Creed -he was phenomenal!! He shoud narrate all of this series because he deep southern voice just really made the book for me.... This narrator was horrible just yuk.
I love audiobooks! They allow me to do my daily chores and get a book read at the same time.
The only reason I kept listening to this book is because I really like this series. I did not care for Lola's narration at all. I love the characters though and I will keep on listening to the rest of the series.
I got this book because it did give us an intro to this female character in the last book. I liked her character a little more then Tucker. The narrator was good on both female and male parts. The story starts fast and it's just a matter of how to get those people together. I think the character of Tucker is bigger and stronger then this book allowed him to be.
Yes, I enjoy the

Two readers - one male, one female.
The use of
This is not exactly neurosurgeon reading, but for its purpose, to get you off, I give it 5 stars. For a woman, like myself, I find the author gives enough credence to the developement of the intimancy of the relationship between the couples in the story. Therefore, that makes the sex especially hot. Nicely done.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
love the men in this series but this book can try your nerves. the book over all is good would have been great if the female lead did not talk the way she does with all those thes. what happen to words like you? other then that it was a good book. cant wait for the next one...just hope she talks normal.
This was my favorite book out of the three but I preferred the narrator for book 2 (Sam's Creed) more.
I rated this three stars as I didn't completely dislike it. On the contrary, I rather enjoyed it. I love Sarah McCarty's characters and the world she has created. It's wonderfully written. I was wary when I turned it on however due to the narration. If you can overlook the fact that the female narrator was rather breathy when speaking the male roles then you'll have no problem enjoying this audiobook.
