When the War Between the States came to its end, the battle inside Isaiah Jones raged on. Neither fully human nor fully wolf, he found his peace-and the passion his inner wolf craved-with Adelaide Cameron. Though their union was forbidden by the werewolf soldiers, Isaiah satisfied his urges by guarding her from afar. But when Adelaide is abducted, Isaiah must not only expose his dark nature, but invite her into the shadows with him.

Love Sarah McCarty books - haven't found one that has disappointed me and this one is no exception. Brilliant new take on the werewolf shifter type books. Isaiah is a Reaper - after the Civil War torture and experiments were done on a group of Soldiers which changed them into werewolves with shattered memories.
Isaiah is drawn to Adelaide (who has issues of her own) but he believes he is a monster and is undeserving of her so he never approaches her - he just keeps her safe by watching over her from afar. That is, until she is kidnapped and then he has no choice but to let his dark side out in the hope of saving her.
It's an enjoyable paranormal western romance, not as 'hot' as some of her previous series, but it has it's moments and it's a must have for her fans.
Worth the credit? Yup.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of red and the sun. That's heaven.
From the opening lines, to the final passages this story IS exciting. It's a wonderful treatment of the post civil war days combined with werewolves. I can't begin to express how very much I enjoyed the intellegent and heart warming effects the actions of the different characters gave me. I natually was looking for something with a western flavor after the "Hells Eight Series", which I followed up with "The Shadow Wrangler Series". The first book in this series of books delivers.
I only listened to the book, therefore I can't comment. I did enjoy the audio. The narrator wasn't bad and wasn't great. I think there room for improvement but I think the book is well worth the listen. If you enjoy Sarah McCarty. I can't say I really enjoyed the Hell's gate series. But the other about the brothers rocks.
I like Addy. She grew into herself throughout the story.
Addy when she realizes she'll need to eat her food with her fingers.
The first coupling between Addy and Isiah
I would have liked the author to have spent a little more time on the interplay between Addy, Isiah and Blade. The little that there was,is entertaining.
I liked this book. I agree with the other reviewers that this book isn't as "hot" as the Hells Eight Series or the Shadow Wranglers but I enjoyed the struggle for understanding between the man, the wolf and the woman. I look forward to the books in the series.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
After SM's cowboy vampire series I just finished up I expected so much more of this book, but unfortunately it's not as good as those. Maybe the next book in this series will be better but this is just a OK listen for me.
