Shadow's Stand

Husband of convenience Lover by choiceShadow Ochoa is lying low in the western Kansas Territory waiting for his fellow Texas Rangers the Hell's Eight brotherhood to clear his name That is until he's unjustly strung up for horse thievingand pretty Fei Yen intervenes Invoking a seldom used law the exotic lady prospector claims Shadow as her. Very enjoyable read Took me a while to remember where the story left off with Shadow s situation this is not a stand alone read but once I got up to speed I started remembering why I like this series Sometimes I find Sarah McCarty s writing a little choppy and her dialogue is not always easy to follow but she does tell a good story In this book Shadow Ochoa who is wanted by the law for a crime he committed in Tracker s Sin is minutes away from being hung for stealing a horse until a brave and beautiful young ChineseAmerican Fei Yen Tseng woman steps in and saves him from the hangman s noose She needs a temporary husband to help her with her gold claim and Shadow will do just fine But what she doesn t count on is having an attraction and burning desire for a man who could never be in the life she s destined to leadLoved the heroine in this one Fei Yen 23 was brave smart and passionate I thought she clicked with Shadow her Dragon and taught him a thing or two about love Loved learning about her Chinese culture and the things that were expected of her and how she was limited because of her mixed blood Enjoyed her relationship with her full blooded Chinese cousin Lin too some nice scenes with the two of them I liked our hero too Shadow 31 had a tendency to try to protect the people who loved him by pushing them away He didn t think he had much to offer a woman because of the pain and violence in his past But that didn t work with Fei Yen or with the rest of his Hell s Eight brothers I was so happy when they appeared in the story to save his butt and to kick it Nice bit of suspense at the end involving Fei Shadow the Hell s Eight guys a corrupt Army general a gold mine and some dynamitehad me biting my nails with worryThe love scenes Not too many but steamy enough Definitely passionate and I could feel the love between the two Very sexy wedding night All right he asked his voice harsher than he intendedYes oh yesWhat do you needNails digging into his shoulders she sighed More Just So a pretty good addition to the series Maybe not my favorite of the bunch I still like Sam s Creed the best but one that fans of the series should enjoy It kept me turning the pages which is enough for me A solid 4 stars I received this ARC from Netgalley PHP Pocket Reference lying Winds of Enchantment lady prospector claims Shadow as her.

Vely Fei except that the daily friction between them ignites into nightly blazes of all consuming passion Soon Shadow is dreaming a little himself of the life they could have if only Fei could see past the lure of independence If only bounty hunters weren't closing in on him If only he's left standing when the impending showdown has ended.
