So even he is shocked when he falls for Sally Mae, a Quaker nurse. Unable to resist Tucker's charm, character and chiseled body, she throws herself into their torrid affair, indulging every one of her wildest sexual fantasies. Tuckerï¿¿ï¿¿s occupation, however, is the one thing about him she can't embrace. A staunch pacifist, Sally Mae can't understand how his strong, caressing hand can clench in fury or pull a trigger to take a life.
In this lawless land, Tucker knows you have to fight to survive. But when Sally Mae becomes pregnant, he's willing to do whatever it takes to have his family - including hanging up his guns.
Every night they spend together exploring new heights of ecstasy binds them ever closer, slowly erasing their differences...until the day Tucker's past comes calling, precipitating an explosive showdown between her faith, his promise, and the need for revenge.

Personally, I enjoyed every minute of this wonderful book. The adventure was well paced and gripping; the sex was hot and fun; and the characters were well-rounded and believable (even with the 'thee' and thou's). :) This book is worth a listen, or at least a trip to your local library.
I love the Hell's Eight Series and can't wait for the next one!!
Great story. Have to agree with others that the "thees and thous" being misused was distracting. The narrator was okay, not great. I feel Sallie Mae was a whiner. More than once I wished I was there so I could smack her and say "shut up and wise up". Tucker's character is wonderful as is the story and I love the ending, which is why it gets the 5 stars.
I have listened to all her books that they have on audible which is only 3 but I loved them all.
I wish they would get more of her books on audible. It's more than romance and is very sexual so if you don't like that kind of stuff, this book is not for you. As for me I can't wait for audible to get more of her books.
I'm addicted to audiobooks. I've listened to probably 300 (maybe more) audiobooks most of which are historical romances. Listening is much easier than reading and you can do other things while listening. When reading you can't do anything but read.
I like Tucker as he is a brute of a guy, but a real teddy bear for the most part. I hated the author's use of
I would have made Sallie Mae talk like a normal person instead of a someone lost in another world. Sallie Mae's speech made it difficult for me to listen to the whole book.
After waiting so long for this next installment in the series, it is heartbreaking to be given a novel that is such a disappointment. Sallie Mae's character was ridiculous in constantly using her religious convictions as a shield against accepting Tucker for who he was when she was more than willing to overlook those convictions to have hot, wild monkey sex with the man at every possible occasion. How can you take someone like that seriously? Another irritant was the way Sallie Mae spoke. Perhaps I am just being trivial, but I found all of her "thee's" and "thy's" to be more than a little annoying. And to me, the chemistry between the two of them just seemed off -- nothing like the heat that existed between Caine and Desi. Then there was the problem of the narrator, who couldn't simulate a convincing male voice to save her life.
My advice is to not waste a perfectly good credit on this one. Save it and spend it wisely elsewhere.
I love Sarah McCarty's Hell's Eight books, but this one's Quaker main character doesn't use 'thee' correctly so I had to stop listening. FYI, Sarah, 'thee' is the objective case, the subject of a sentence should be the word 'thou'. As in, "Thou art a good dancer, I have to hand it to thee." Dangit. I love Tucker's character in the other books too, so I'm disappointed to miss what happens to him.
Yes, I enjoy the

This one is a close second to Sam's book. They went back to a female narrator and she does a nice job. I found the female characters way of speech a bit annoying but fitting to her character. Although I liked the characters they seemed a bit mismatched. The inclusion of Bella and Sam from book two occasionally helped make the book fun. Still a good book overall.
Sarah McCartly didn't do her research on the usage of "thee" and "thou" it was very disturbing to the ear to hear it used incorrectly. Here are the correct examples.
Thee = I, Me
Thou - You, Your
Thy - My
Thine - Mine
So you can understand when she keeps saying thee, meaning thou it is frustrating to anyone who knows old English. Other wise the stories are much like her other ones. I had to agree with Ann in St. Louis, MO. Sarah McCartly should have done her homework.on Quakers.
Go out and read something!
Before you even THINK about purchasing this book be prepared to know that it is just NOT worth it. I have an open mind, but nothing could make me like this book. First off. The main character Sallie Mae is a quaker who's husband dies and even though she's in morning, she falls in love with the 1/2 Indian Tucker. He's gorgeous, wild, untamed, and believes in violence. He's a ranger. And even though Sallie hates violence of any kind, she lusts for him, and the consume that lust, over and over again.
The sex is the ONLY thing that redeems this stupid book.
Another thing you should know is that Sarah McCarty likes to beat a dead horse. She goes on and on and on reminding us how Tucker thinks that no one could love him. He resents his 1/2 Indian heritage, yada yada yada. After a while, you're annoyed and you want him to either accept who he is, or get into a gun fight and die. Ms. McCarty doesn't make Sallie Mae a likable character either. The most annoying thing about Sallie is that she talks so annoyingly that you really just want her to shut up. She replaces 'thee' for YOU, and she says it ALL OF THE TIME. In addition, she talks in some strange monotone and its so aggrivating. You want to fast fwd her speaking bits and allow her to only moan when she and Tucker have sex. Seriously. I couldn't like her if I tried. She also is presented as a strong willed woman who's so smart and believes in her convictions, yada yada yada... Let me be clear. SALLIE MAE IS A WEAK, FOOLISH WOMAN. I hate reading books about stupid women. I can't condone it. She's all "no violence' blah blah blah and she continues with her convictions even as a man is about to kill her. Really? Or how about how she's all "I won't get married. I'm in mourning..." blah blah blah and yet, because of how society sees her, she allows this drunkard to carry her supplies home, walking ALL through the town, which symbolizes that she's out of mourning and actually letting this drunkard court her. I kept hoping she'd be killed. I would have enjoyed the book more.
Anyone who tells you this book is good is lying to YOU and THEMSELVES. It's a waste of money and time. The book rambles on and on reitterating the same points. It's so foolish.
