Hi, All!

I've read the first books in the Hell's Eight series - Caine's Reckoning, Sam's Creed, Tucker's Claim, and Tracker's Sin.  I loved 3 of them, but Tucker's Claim was not my taste - the heroine drove me nuts.  I've put Shadow's Stand on my Wish List but is wondering if it's any good.  Anyone read it yet?

I have read it. My review is up on Goodreads. I thought it was good. Didn't blow me away, but it was a good story and the sex was a bit more toned down that in other books.

Yeah, didn't dig on Tucker's Claim either.

I've liked them all, but it kind of sucked (for me) that Caine's Reckoning was the best.  They've all sort of been downhill from there after that one because I loved it (him) so much.  I haven't read Shadow's Stand yet, though.  It's supposed to be on the way to me, but I think by now it's lost in the mail!

Keri,  can you post a link to your Goodreads review?

 

Michelle, I agree that so far, Caine has been the best hero, although Desi's PTSD was a little too much for me.  Somehow, Ari's dissociative amnesia made for better reading.  I think Bella has been my favorite heroine in the series.  I hope Shadow's Stand arrives soon.

i'm still on book 2..sam's I think..not sure why I stopped - probably a combination of burned out on erotica(at one time I never thought that would be possible LOL!), the violence mentioned(I'm a wuss) and historical(not my fave) but I plan to get back to them - I liked her Promises books in spite of the violence - and Asa is still my fave hero of that group I think though they were all pretty hot!
