Before his trade became his name, "Tracker" Ochoa was a scrawny Mestizo runaway. Now as fearsome as he once was frightened, he's joined the notorious Hell's Eight, and they have a job for him: he must rescue kidnapped heiress Ari Blake and deliver her safely to the Hell's Eight compound by any means necessary. Turns out that includes marrying her, if he means to escort her and her infant daughter across the Texas Territory.
Tracker hadn't bargained on a wife - especially such a fair, blue-eyed beauty. But the erotic pleasures of the marriage bed more than make up for the surprise.
Tracker's well-muscled bronze skin and dark, dangerous eyes are far more exciting than any of Ari's former debutante dreams. In the light of day, though, his deep scars and brooding intensity terrify her. But he's her husband and she's at his mercy. With the frontier against them and mercenary bandits at their heels, Ari fears she'll never feel safe again.
Tracker, too, remembers what fear feels like. Though he burns to protect Ari, to keep her for himself always, he knows that money, history - and especially the truth - can tear them apart.

Nothing exceptional, but enjoyable. I didn't mind the narrator the way others seemed to. She had a lazy way of speaking that I think was supposed to be sensual. I was ok with it.
You'll have to like erotica if you want to like this author - which I do, for the most part. But be warned, she's a little too kinky at times. The language is overly crude (she loves the "P" word way too much) and repetitive. The last scene was offensive and turned what should have been a glorious conclusion into something downright disturbing. I mean, what would you do if on your wedding night your new husband told you your VJ just wasn't enough for him and anal sex turned into the ultimate expression of love? UGG. Experimenting at some point, may-be, but that was just SO wrong.
I've read the other books in this series and enjoyed them much more than this book. I think the problem was more with the narration than the story. The reader made it difficult to focus on the story because I found myself being distracted by her intonation.
I have the softest spot for Tracker. I am so happy Ari was for him. They complimented each other very well. I loved it. Cant wait for Shadow's story.
This was a great book. I've listened to all 4 Hell's Eight books and loved every one of them. Hope Audible gets more Sarah McCarty books. The Promises series would be a good start. Can't wait for Shadow's Stand to come out.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
I love the combination of period and erotica and those sexy boyz deliver every time
The narration of this book was awful! I had to stop listening several times, just because it was so boring. It's almost like Ari has NO personality at all...its bizarre. The characters don't develop in a way that you feel like you know or enjoy them. If you like sex scenes its alright, but sounds like every other that the author writes so of course you know whats coming...apparently the author has a "thing" for anal stuff. So far I have listened to two books of hers and both make the biggest deal out of anal sex. Needless to say I'm glad its over, and that I don't have to listen again, and won't be buying any more McCarty books.
This is a great story...but the narrator is TERRIBLE! I would suggest reading the book rather than listening. The narrator seems to phrase all of her sentences kind of like a question and draws the words out. I would have rated with 5 stars if it weren't for the narrator.
Love the Hell's Eight boys. I so looked forward to finding Ari and this would have been a fantastic Audible book except for the narrator. Every sentence spoken sounded like a question. Very irritating.
While Tracker's Sin isn't as bad as the Tucker's Claim ( the previous book of this series - awful! ), it still doesn't live up to the quality of Caine's Reckoning (the first book). For me, this book teetered between just ok and boring. I guess I was expecting more since the female lead in Tracker's Sin (Ari) was the twin sister of the female lead in Caine's Reckoning (Desi). But this book lacked the spark of the first story. I see other reviewers don't agree with me on this, but I was disappointed with this installment (again!).
The narration was also off, which certainly didn't help matters. These "Hell's Eight" characters are supposed to be the epitome of rugged cowboys, and yet the narrator portrays them like rejects from Gunsmoke or Bonanza. Shouldn't those issues be addressed in production?
Agree with other reviewers that while this story was good, it needed more story development. At this point in the series, it would have been good to extend the story once they returned to Hell's 8. Tracker and Ari's relationship needed more time as did Ari and Desi. Plus the whole storyline around killing the bad guy was short changed.
