    15 Eye rolling Stars SpoilersI am sorry but this book had me rolling my eyes so much I'm surprised they didn't roll right outta my head I'm going to try to keep this rant mini while still getting out everything that didn't work for me Let me start with Sally Mae the uaker She drove me bat shit crazy with all the old English Thy thou and thee crap Sally was a religious uaker woman who had only been with her husband in very vanilla ways it was hard to believe that a couple pages into the book she was A ready to have an affair instead of saving sex for marriage as religious people back in the 1800s tended to do and B not only had sex right away but gave blow jobs like a lady of the night and had butt sex her first time with Tucker Just sayin' Now at this point in the book which was like only the 25% mark I am thinking I should just DNF this read because I am not feeling a connection with the couple and felt that Sally's character was unbelievable I pushed on because I wanted to get to Ari's book and I didn't want to miss anything that might add to the ongoing plot of the series But the book just got absurd as the pages turned Tucker pulls out an 18th century dildo and jeweled vag clamp He sticks the dildo up Sally's ass and makes her keep it up there and wear the vag clamp on her clit for 3 hours Now call me crazy but I didn't know that dildos and jeweled vag clamps were so accessible in the wild west but hey I didn't live back then Also I'm suppose to believe that Sally Mae the religious uaker woman took a dildo in the ass and kept it there and wore a vag clamp for hours while singing a church hymn It was just so ridiculous I couldn't take any of it serious Which means I didn't get into this book My brain just shut off after reading about dildos and church hymns Sorry but I just couldn't Nope Now I don't even want to read Ari's book I think I will take a break from this series and come back

    This third book in Sarah McCarty's Hell's Eight series was a very enjoyable sweetly erotic and mildly suspenseful read and moved along at a pretty good pace that made me want to keep turning the pages Not uite as wordy or disturbing as Caine's Reckoning not uite as erotic as Sam's Creed but a great effort with two pretty likable leads and the welcome return of a bunch of characters from previous booksThis one picks up a few months after Sam's Creed left off in Texas around 1859 with the members of Hell's Eight still looking for Desi's Caine's Reckoning kidnapped sister Ari Tucker McCade who is also a Texas Ranger is hanging around Lindos Texas waiting to see if a lead will pan out but also keeping a watchful eye on the widow Sally Mae Schermerhorn Sally Mae has recently lost her doctor husband to murder in this wild Texas town and she has come to taking up where he left off providing her own formidable nursing skills to those in need The half breed Tucker is smitten with the willowy blonde uaker as she is with him even though his violent world is against everything she believes in His long black hair silver eyes ripped physiue he can't fit in sleeves and gentle way with her sets her mind to fantasizing she's lonely and has a thirst for adventure that would be against her uaker beliefs Lonely lacking in faith Tucker whose whole family and town were wiped out in a Mexican raid when he was 16 leaving only eight young boys who survived Hell's Eight bent on vengeance longs to have what he thinks he can't have a woman to love him for what he is like Bella loves Sam and Desi loves Caine But he's part Indian and an Indian with a white woman in those days is unthinkable But that doesn't stop Sally MaeSally Mae decides to give in to temptation enjoy the now and not look to the future and enjoy the pleasure of Tucker's company They meet in the woods behind her house and Tucker shows her a thing or two about passion and lovemaking hothothot Sally Mae is a uaker? Well what starts as a one time thing turns into a months long passionate affair hidden from the townsfolk of course because if they found out Sally Mae would be scorned and Tucker would be hanged And although Tucker and Sally Mae have no problems setting the sheets on fire Sally Mae being a pacifist has big problems with the violence in Tucker's world Sally Mae keeps insisting that Tucker has a choice that he doesn't have to settle differences or threats against himself with violence Tucker insists that there's no other way in untamed Texas Eventually it comes down to a choice for Sally Mae and her long held beliefs are put on the line Will she choose violence if it means saving herself and the people she loves?Good story even though at times I was wondering where the author was going with it Not that it was slow or anything since it wasn't but I kept waiting to see if something '' was going to happen There was a lot of disagreements about what Sally Mae thought was unnecessary violence on Tucker's part but I thought she was being a bit unreasonable and naive I mean she was a pacifist yet she came to the most violent place in the country what did she expect? I don't think that turn the other cheek was going to work here That was the main focus of the book would Sally Mae's religious beliefs get in the way of her relationship with a man whose profession was something she abhored? And of course there was the taboo relationship between a half breed and a white woman and how was that going to work out there was a little complication to the relationship that forced them to take a good hard look at where it was heading The book really started to pick up when Bella and Sam came on the scene I enjoyed the conversations that Bella and Sally Mae had as well as Tucker's interaction with Sam and Tracker and Shadow I liked how Shadow's advice to Tucker put everything about the relationship into perspective The book built up to an exciting gripping conclusion that had Sally Mae making a choice and also finding her place among the Hell's EightNow the love scenes? Not as many as you would expect but well placed throughout the book and plenty hot Of course the obligatory anal scene and the use of some sex toys in 1850s? helped to push this to the erotic romance category but by no means was it a sex fest There was plenty of story to go with it especially towards the final third of the bookI did have the feeling while I was reading the book that I knew a lot about Tucker who I loved and just wanted to give a big ol' hug but wasn't so sure about how well I knew Sally Mae I kept thinking that maybe I had missed something about her that was in the previous book? I had uestions about her background before she married her husband and wasn't uite sure that SM was going to satisfy my curiosity Thankfully she did address my uestions even though she did wait until near the end of the book so be patient and you'll find out howwhy Sally Mae became a uakerFans of this series should be pretty pleased with this one Little spoiler coming hereno Ari hasn't been found yet but I feel like they're getting closer This book had some violence some steamy romance and a bit of harrowing suspense And aside from dealing with Sally Mae's speech pattern she substitues thee for you which at first was a little jarring the book flows very smoothly and provides a very nice HEA yet leaves you wondering what's going to happen next I for one can't wait to find out 4 12 stars

    Not at all what I was expecting or anticipating and that can sometimes be a good thing but not this time McCarty set this story up really well at the end of Sam’s Creed and had me itching to get my hands on it Well I was sorely disappointed because I didn’t like Tucker and I didn’t like the BDSM side of the story because it didn’t seem to have its placeThe story starts out with Tucker who’ part Indian wishing he could be with the widow Shermerhorn who’s a uaker He protects her and admires her from afar The Widow is also an “admirer” of Tucker’s They get together right from the start of the book practically in a moment of passion Sounds all good but I think you have to like reading BDSM stories to like how the relationship between the hh here pans outI don’t like a hero whose first thing is to shove his thingy in the heroine’s mouth the first time they’re going at it before doing anything else really He’s supposed to want her badly and that just didn’t seem like the best way to show that He came across as selfish and very domineering –not that she was complaining or anything however she was very passive and accepting of just about everything For a woman who’s led a very proper life and has had pretty much vanilla sex throughout her marriage this jumping in with both feet at the first encounter seemed unlikely and unbelievable Later some sex toys are introduced with a lot of anal sex and then I gave up I didn’t feel the intimacy or the emotion really between these two Tucker was The Boss and Sally Mae just took it all sometimes apprehensively too Now hey maybe she liked to be dominated but I just didn’t get that feeling in the book It felt like he was convincing her too much to do what he wantedSally Mae is also a weird bird She’s a pacifist in love with a Ranger and she’s constantly lecturing him about how she doesn’t like what he does because it involves violence –he kills outlaws She’s extremely naive and has some major TSTL moments that make you want to whack her one There are some points where she’s being threatened and smacked around and she’s all with this forgiveness crap Makes you want to scream “wake the hell up lady”I didn’t think this story was developed as well as her previous ones in the Hell’s 8 series It didn’t really go anywhere there was too much filler and there was sex for the sake of putting in some sex McCarty can write some scorcher sex scenes like in her Promises series and nearly all those books had a very well developed relationship btw the hh so it all fit it just didn’t cut it here Her uaker lingo didn’t seem very believable either compared to some other stories I’ve read with uaker speak A few characters from the other books make an appearance Caine was the worst What a loser that guy is No heart wrenching tale here about forbidden love the way you’re led to believe More like erotica without emotion which was too bad because McCarty can kill you at the end of a story with so much feeling that you’re ready to burst Here’s hoping that Tracker and Shadow’s story is better

    I don't recall this being uite so OTT sexual as it really really isNovella fantasy fiction as in this version of the wild Wild West has about as much reality to it as Gidget does to being a teenager in the 50s Still lots of funuaker widow woman falls for half breed hero despite townspeople's white prejudices First night sex is OTT and than a little kinky which is hard to believe for a uaker widow woman's first foray after mourning but I just went with itLots of manly men saving women pushing boundaries and demonstrating their honorI have a feeling that the author based the H on this character which is not a bad thing

    35 stars I thinkI do actually really like this series and I will continue it There were some things that bothered me about this oneThere is the typical stuff like the blatant racism sexism and general ugh ness of the time period but there was other stuff that bothered me tooMost annoying Thee and thy I wanted to just scream I tried to train myself to replace the thee with you but I couldn't trick my brain Its awful Less annoying but still irritating Sally Mae's pacifist mentality Now I'm not saying she should be blood thirsty or that there's anything wrong with being a pacifist I'm all for peace and all but she crossed idealism into denial of reality That was irritatingI did like Tucker I liked her and Tucker together I liked seeing the other characters and that Sally had some issues with who she was and her place in the worldsociety She was strong and smart except when she was being naive and stupidThere was hotness Mixed with sweetnessThings kind of fell apart a bit for me there at the end Overall I enjoyed and will continue with the series

    Good book with two storylines The main one is the romance between Tucker and Sallie Mae with some inroads into the ongoing mystery of what happened to the Hell's Eight's sister in law Ari Sallie Mae is a widowed uaker woman who has continued her late husband's medical work The townspeople have no problem using her services but they also look at her somewhat askance because of her independence Especially since she has Tucker staying in her barn whenever he's in town Tucker is a Texas Ranger which gains him some respect but he is also half Indian which makes him despised and distrusted by most people Tucker and Sallie Mae are drawn to each other despite all logic Sallie Mae is attracted to his hot body his occasional charm and the good man she sees underneath the violent surface However his violent lifestyle makes it hard to think of anything permanent with him Tucker fell hard and fast for Sallie Mae but knows that because of who and what he is he can't have her That doesn't stop him from wanting her and discovering that she wants him too puts them on a collision course with troubleI really enjoyed the development of the relationship It starts out with the decision to indulge in a single night together but neither is satisfied with that They easily slip into being together whenever possible The passion between them is incredible though I have to admit that some of their activities were not to my taste Both find themselves wishing for than just an affair But Sallie Mae can't reconcile her beliefs and his lifestyle choices and Tucker just doesn't believe that there is any way for them to be togetherI liked Sallie Mae but she also frustrated me In a time period when you did not associate with anyone bearing Indian blood she is completely without prejudice She believes that everyone is one of God's children I liked the way that she saw his honor his kindness and his gentleness But I also had a problem with the way she was so fixated on the violence He is a Ranger so it isn't that he has a whole lot of choice in what he does He is very protective of those he cares about and he will do anything to keep them safe As they got closer she does begin to soften her stance a little asking him to try I also thought she was rather naive about her own safety around the men of the town until it was almost too lateI really liked Tucker He is a man with a pretty deep sense of honor though most people don't look past his Indian blood to see it His relationship with his family is close as they have been there for each other since their families were killed He has fallen hard for Sallie Mae but because of who he is he does his best to protect her reputation I loved seeing how tender and gentle he could be when he wanted to but also pretty forceful when he was trying to get her to see things his way When Sallie Mae ended up pregnant not really a surprise I loved that Tucker was immediately ready to take the next step However he is also well aware of the danger once it becomes known that she is pregnant with his child I loved his determination to marry immediately and take her back to his home It was at this point that Sallie Mae's insecurities became visible as she worried about finding her own place in his worldOn their way to Hell's Eight they run into trouble related to the search for Ari as their group is attacked The attackers believe that Sallie Mae is either Desi or Ari and are determined to capture her There are some intense moments as she tries to protect the others and nearly gets herself killed in the process She learns something about her own capabilities which in turn opens her eyes to Tucker's life Then a crisis at Hell's Eight brings out her strengths though not without some rather amusing confrontations with other members of the family I loved the ending and seeing how they were figuring out the best way to make their beliefs work together

    This was one of those books I'm kind of undecided what I thought of it It wasn't really bad but I didn't love it in any way There were things I liked and things that annoyed me So I guess it's a split down the middle between good stuff and bad stuffSummarySally Mae is a widowed uaker nurse living in a wild western town When her husband a doctor was alive she assisted him in his duties and learned to help the sick and injured Now that he's dead she's been doing what she could for the town But now everyone believes she should be getting married again women just did not live alone and the men are becoming a problem Sally Mae knows she needs to do something but her heart is hooked on half breed Indian Tucker McCadesomeone totally wrong for her After all he's a Texas Ranger a gunslinger and she's a staunch pacifistTucker is a member of the infamous Hell's Eight group As a half breed he's barely of member of society Which is why he tries to hold back his feelings for Sally Mae They could never have a relationship But their passion gets the best of them and they give in Now both must decide what they are willing to do to be togetherReviewThe first bunch of pages of this book nearly had me deciding to put off reading the rest for a while There's like 13 pages of narrative to start things off Just page after page paragraph after paragraph of character introspection and I was so bored It was just a really slow way to start the bookAnd for the first half of the book I continued to be fairly bored There's not really much action at all and you just sort of keep going around in circles about Sally Mae's pacifist beliefs and Tucker's half breed status And how that pushes them apart and their passion pulls them together Not much in the first half of the book engagedPlus like some other reviewers have said the whole thing with Sally Mae's speechusing thee and thy and whatnot was really distracting in the beginning It gets better as you read but it was still irritatingThe storyline picks up as the book moves along More things start to happen and as a reader I got engaged in the story It made up some for the lackluster beginning but overall it still wasn't a plot that really sucked me in It was nice to get to catch up with past charactersbut what the hell was up with Caine? He was such a jerk I didn't get why he was so freaked out of Sally Mae That whole thing was weirdAnd on the sex frontI have to say I was rather surprised at the fact that there were only a couple sex scenes in the book The first scene was a little abbreviated because they do a few things then it skips to the morning and talks about all the wild and kinky stuff they did after that first timethat was kinda cheap But anyway having read McCarty before this one has a lot less sex than past books And I do feel like Sally Mae's character and personality didn't really match with what she did sexually but that's just my opinionAll in allso so book Fairly average on all ends Not bad not great just kinda in the middle I think people who have read the other books in this series would probably want to read it thoughWARNING this book contains explicit sex and language oral sex anal sex ass play toys a little dominance and submission very mild

    Tucker's Claim3 StarsHalf Native American half white Tucker McCade has only ever felt a sense of belonging with Hell’s Eight the men with whom he came of age in a time of destruction Now an adult Tucker is a Texas Ranger at home with violence and danger Unfortunately his life is anathema for Sally Mae Schermerhorn the woman he has come to love and desire As a uaker and a nurse Sally Mae knows that Tucker is the last person she should love but the heart wants what the heart wants if only Sally Mae can reconcile her mind to itThe story begins after Tucker and Sally Mae have already met and admitted their attraction to themselves if not to each other Their backstory is provided but it would have been better had this been shown rather than told as it feels like the reader is coming into a film in the middleSally Mae’s dialogue is replete with “thous” and thys” which might have been the manner of speech for uakers at the time but it feels forced in this book especially considering the erotic nature of the story and Sally Mae’s action in this regardThat said Sally Mae and Tucker’s romance is sweet although the conflict with the townsfolk over Tucker’s origins is underdeveloped and Sally Mae’s issues with Tucker’s profession are resolved much too easilyAll in all not a bad love story if a little incongruous with the setting

    This third book in Sarah McCarty's Hell's Eight series was a very enjoyable sweetly erotic and mildly suspenseful read and moved along at a pretty good pace that made me want to keep turning the pages I do actually really like this series and I will continue itI liked this one much better than the previous book which puzzles me because I really liked Bella and Sam in their book When I picked up Tucker's Claim I wasn't entirely sure what to expectI liked this book but Tucker's tastes in sex are a little bit extreme for me blush I liked this one not as much as the first but it was enjoyableThis is my favorite kind of erotic romance where the emotions generated during the extreme sex scenes actually serve to move the plot forward and engage the protagonists in character growth This was a wonderful historical western portraying the a story of a widowed nurse Sally and a ranger Tucker who by any normal rights should not be atracked to each otherVery interesting continuation to this series I love the Hell's Eight series and menthe ultimate bad guys protecting what's theirs and loving their women to the moon and backWow Tucker was a dirty boy I still like this series and loved Tucker but wasn't crazy about the heroineThis is Tucker and Sally Mae's story and it was goodGreat recommendations D
