Publisher's Summary

Tucker McCade has known violence his whole life: orphaned in a massacre, abused as a "half-breed" child, trained as a ruthless Texas Ranger, he's learned the hard way that might makes right.

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.

Excellent Story

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.

Another great listen from Sarah McCarty

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!!

Tucker's Claim is GREAT

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.

Close runner up to Sam's book

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.

I had to stop listening

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.

Boring and Pointless

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.

Another Great Hell's Eight

If you could sum up Tucker's Claim in three words, what would they be?

ExcitingEntertainingExtraordinary

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tucker and Sally. Who would think a Quaker nurse would fall for a Mixed race wild man. Who hunts killers for a living. But their story is wonderful.

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

She draws you into the book and actually makes you see the drama as it unfolds.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Okay, but glad it was over!

What did you like best about Tucker's Claim? What did you like least?

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

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

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.

Good story BUT

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.
