Sheriff Jonathan MacSweeny is in charge of keeping the peace in Prospect Springs. Frontier living isn't what it used to be. It's hard to survive in the New Old West and it's even harder when your area doesn't exactly embrace supernaturals - and you howl at the moon. That being said, he's good at his job and has a reputation with the ladies. When he learns his childhood sweetheart is to be married off to the town sleazebag, he goes in guns blazing to see to it she's his. Problem is, Molly isn't the same girl he remembers from 10 years prior. Now she's a gun-toting, foul-mouthed, vixen with a badge of her own.
Special Marshal Molly Cogan never planned to set foot back in Prospect Springs. When her friend gets the harebrained idea to steal her identity in an attempt to protect her from the bounty the outlaws have on her head, Molly finds herself standing right smack dab in the middle of chaos - or home in her case. It isn't long before Jonathan is there, flashing that famous MacSweeny boy smile and tempting her in ways she wasn't prepared for. This heart-hardened Marshal has her work cut out for her if she plans to face her past fears and her past sweetheart.
Warning: This novella contains strong language and shape shifting cowboys of the future who will melt your socks off. This novella also has explicit, graphic sexual content and is not for the faint of heart.

Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
This book is a tasty little bit of fun. Great snappy dialogue and many parts that will make you giggle.
Molly is a totally awesome chick who kicks serious butt. I loved her sass and all that attitude. She starts of strong but ends with a bit of a whimper. I am not saying she made the wrong decision, I am all about the HEA, but she lost some of that spunky sparkled I loved in the beginning. The banter with Jonathan and his brothers is great. He is super yummy, if a bit stuck on sex.
I would love to see this story expanded, more of her friends and the transformation. There was so much left unsaid about her job and the journey she underwent. I also really wanted the bad guy to get what was coming to him. I felt like Molly would have done something to him, it would have been justified. Her back story could have used more detail as well.
The story is a mixed narrative, you get both Molly and Jonathan in the POV. It really helps you understand them and the relationship.
There is of course yummy smexy scenes!! I could have used a bit more her too. Don't get me wrong, it is delicious, just wanted more.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Mason Lloyd, who is yummy. I really loved his tone and that he didn't try to get to high with the women's voices. He hits all the right notes. His energy is fantastic and really fits the action scenes. I will definitely be looking for more of his reads.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and hope to see more of the series. I need to know about Parker, Lynette, Eli and Cole. There are many delicious possibilities!
