Publisher's Summary

His past has haunted him for a lifetime…but one woman could be his salvation

Gunslinger Caden Miller's compadres are becoming a bit too domesticated for his liking. So he's off to Kansas territory to carve out a living and a space of his own - alone, just the way he likes it.

Maddie O'Hare has been drawn to Caden ever since she escaped to the Hell's Eight compound from the brothel where she was born and raised. And she's not ready to let him go so easily…until she's captured by his new neighbors.

When Caden discovers that Maddie is being held by a rival at a nearby ranch, his plan to rescue her backfires, and he finds himself the groom in what's literally a shotgun wedding. As shocked as Caden is by the bizarre turn of events, Maddie's grateful kiss holds a fiery promise that's far more unexpected. But with old enemies catching up with him, Caden and Maddie will face a danger that tests their passion - and will either bind them together forever or break them apart for good.

#6 of Hell’s Eight

McCarty’s strength is in her characters, and devising situations that both bring together, and set against each other, the male and female leads. If the larger story arc of Hell’s Eight were integrated better into the individual books, they would be just about perfect. This book brings together Caden and Maddie. We get to see Maddie growing out of her fantasies when stressed, and learning to deal with the real world, without turning into a psychological exposition. McCarty leaves out a lot of what motivates Caden, if he has any success with the gold mine, if he added to Hell’s Eight financially, how he overcomes his demons. Sarah, just tuck in a sentence here or there.
Hoffman was ok as narrator, but definitely not one of the best of the series. The publisher/ editor would have served this series better by having a single, better narrator for all Hell’s Eight books to add that link, the continuity that would add so much more to the writing.

Hard to listen to.

The Narrator's voice was too feminine to represent male characters. Really detracted from the story.

Not as good as the others 😞

I was really looking forward to Molly's story and also to learn a little about Caden but this book was just lacking something. I wasn't crazy about the male voices but Molly was good. It was worth listening to and was a great ending but It just wasn't the best .

Please please find a decent narrator!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. So disappointed in the choice of narrators, AGAIN! These are good stories, have listened to all and one point is very apparent to me.......why would a fake Texas accent on a squeaky, whiney young woman's voice work for a story about a ruff, tuff, Texas Ranger????. Only one book was narrated by a man? Much appreciated. Too late now, but hopefully Ms McCarty will hold firm for a change with her next novel.

What was most disappointing about Sarah McCarty’s story?

The story was weak, dialogue even weaker but narrating made it all irritating!

What didn’t you like about Paula Hoffman’s performance?

She has NO understanding of the Texan accent. She reAds through her nose and whines instead of delivering! I am done with her work.

Could you see Caden's Vow being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

NEVER.....story not stemg enough.

Good Book - Terrible Narrator

I enjoyed the story. I've like all the books in the series, but this narrator was really hard to hear. She was rushed in the wrong places and when the direction was saying 'low voice' she was shouting and talking fast. I almost gave up on listening but I wanted to hear the story.

Keep Them Coming I Love This Series

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, it was an interesting storyline with memorable characters.

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

I like most narrators, this one is no exception-good job.

Was Caden's Vow worth the listening time?

It sure was. I've listened a few times.

Any additional comments?

Some reviewers are disappointed, I'm not sure why. It seems to be similar to the rest of the series.<br/><br/>I'm not a 'historical' romance fan however this series is an exception! Good plots, hot romance-language & scenes for adult readers.
