Good read in the Hell's Eight historical western series. This one has an action plot - Sam rescues Isabella from the site of a massacre. She says she wants to go San Antonio and very little else. Sam knows there is more going on but takes her along with him. [He is actually looking for Desi's sister from the previous book.] Bit by bit the story comes out - Isabella is in really big trouble. As they travel, they keep running into bands of thugs who want to kill him and take Isabella. Virginal Isabella decides she wants our hero to make love to her so her first time won't be rape when the chief thug gets her back [she figures this is inevitable]. Sam tries to be noble, he tries really, really hard...

I enjoyed the book and the plot kept me turning the pages. There are fun bits; mostly having to do with Isabella's attitude and occasional mangling of slang phrases. Sam is another strong male character with issues. Isabella is managing woman who could give stubborn lessons... It doesn't have the horrific elements found in the first book; although the theme is touched on.
