[[ KINDLE ]] ❀ Tucker's Claim Author Sarah McCarty – Reliableradio.co.uk

Tucker's Claim 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 quite as wordy or disturbing as Caine s Reckoning, not quite 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 books.This 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 Quaker, as she is with him, even though his violent world is a 3.5 stars I think.I do actually really like this series, and I will continue it There were some things that bothered me about this one.There 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 too.Most 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 irritating.I 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 world 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 place.The story starts out with Tucker, who part Indian, wishing he could be with the widow Shermerhorn who s a Quaker 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 h h here pans out.I 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 sel I don t recall this being quite so OTT sexual as it really, really is.Novella 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 fun.Quaker 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 Quaker widow woman s first foray after mourning, but I just went with it.Lots of manly m 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 stuff.Summary Sally Mae is a widowed Quaker 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 pacifist.Tucker 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 nev 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 Quaker 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 trouble.I really enjoyed the development of the relationship It starts out with the decision to indulge in a single night together, but neither is satisfie 3.5 5 Reread Oct 2017 The heroes of Hell s Eight make me wish I lived in the old West Such alpha males, each toting emotional baggage, each convinced they have nothing to offer a good woman, each good
