Shadow's Stand | [Sarah McCarty]

Shadow's Stand

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.

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....

    "I really enjoyed this book."

    This story keeps you on your toes all the way through. Shadow is true to form looking good and sporting an attitude. The heroine did not wine or simper like women in similar stories, which was refreshing. In all...good book, good narrator and worth your credit.

    "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.

    "The Best of the Hell's Eight Series"

    I love this series, and enjoyed the fact that all the characters stayed connected throughout the series. What made this audiobook most enjoyable was the narrator, she did a outstanding job

    Story
    "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.

    I listed to audiobooks when I run and the books in this series always make me want to run longer so that I can hear more. Happily

    Story
    "A Good Listen!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow's Stand to be better than the print version?

    I don't really know. I think they would rate pretty much the same.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow's Stand?

    When Tracker confronted Shadow and tried to convince him that his life was worth something. I also liked when Hell's Eight broke Shadow out of jail and they made camp for the night and several of the eight gave Shadow a hard time about how much he had fallen in love. It was nice to see that these hard as hell guys have a good sense of humor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Fei blew up the house of the man that her cousin was sold too. Shadow was so impressed by her bravery that he was speechless.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Ahh - maybe two or three sittings.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was good. There are some inconsistencies between this book and the previous books, but I'm still looking forward to the rest of the Hell's Eight books. I can't believe that it will take 3 more years to finish the series. I wonder if I'll move on and miss the last three books in the series.

    Also, the author hasn't brought at least two of the Hell's Eight into any of the books or they've only had a line or two which I think will make it hard to draw them into the series. I'm not so sure that writing a series of 8 books over a period of 8 years is really a smart move because it does lead to inconsistencies and makes tying characters together between books a bit harder.

    "Trashy Romance with a twist"
    Where does Shadow's Stand rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I actually enjoyed this book. It's not the most intellectual I've ever read, but for a steamy romance book, it actually is pretty deep.

    "Another Great one in the series!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow's Stand to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was actually quite humorous - from the beginning premise...going to a hanging to buy a husband!


    What does Savannah Richards bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed her performance...it was good and her characters were well performed and defined.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was a really good story along with the hot, sexually erotica.


    Any additional comments?

    What has happened to Sarah McCarthy - I cannot find any current information about her writing. I'm desperate for the rest of the series to be released on audio!
