I love Sarah McCarty and paranormal romance so I really wanted to love Caleb but just never got there. It starts out pretty good but then falls flat and I found myself skipping over parts just to get finished. The heroine is extremly annoying and I really didn't get the hero. I will read the next one in the series because I like the premise and am hoping it gets better.
It was an okay book. It was a little hard to follow at some points, jumping forward in time without tell you. I've read other books by same author and loved them. Story was okay. Romance scene were mediocre. Overall not a bad book just a little on the boring side. Series might pick up with 2nd one, who knows.
Currently 1.5/5 Stars.

I wanted to enjoy this book. But I just couldn't handle the math. Caleb has been a vampire for 250 years. Yet he was human in the 1860's. First time I cam across the math error, I just ignored it. But by the 3rd time, forget it - this book was not that exciting and I would not characterize the sex scenes as "erotica". Too boring.
This is the first of a new series and the author is setting the scene for future novels while trying to tell the story of Allie and Caleb. This is my first book by Sarah McCarty, so I didn't have any "expectations" when I started it. I didn't think it was boring, just a normal first series novel and look forward to reading about the other characters mentioned in the book.
I started the series by reading them right. This is the first. I enjoyed reading the book overall but following the chain of events was hard to do at best. I will read the second book and hope it is better just because I want to see all the stories about the four brothers and how they meet their mates. But I would not really recommend this series. One thing I really did not like about the book is there were hundreds of pages leading up to the climax and then the end happened in 3 or 4 pages. I give it two stars.
4 brothers, all ranchers and vampires. This book is a story of Celeb the oldest Johnson brothers. He falls for a local baker Allie Sanders. He comes to her rescure from the D'Nally were wolves that were set out to kill her for some reason. Little did Celeb know when he save her, she does the same from him. But the bad thing that happened that changed both of there lives. She has secerets that Allie and Celeb have to figure out and Celeb has to fight aginst his possiveness.
