Back Cover Blurb:

Before his trade became his name, "Tracker" Ochoa was a scrawny mestizo runaway. Now as fearsome as he once was frightened, he's joined the notorious Hell's Eight...and they have a job for him.

He must rescue kidnapped heiress Ari Blake and deliver her safely to the Hell's Eight compound--by any means necessary. Turns out that includes marrying her, if he means to escort her and her infant daughter across the Texas territory. Tracker hadn't bargained on a wife--especially such a fair, blue-eyed beauty. But the pleasures of the marriage bed more than make up for the surprise. 

Tracker's well-muscled body and dark, dangerous eyes are far more exciting than any of Ari's former debutante dreams. In the light of day, though, his deep scars and brooding intensity terrify her. But with the frontier against them and mercenary bandits at their heels, her fearsome husband may be the only protection she's got.

My Review:

McCarty brings the Wild West to life in a big way with this one. Action & adventure, romance & suspense, heroes & damsels in distress all make their appearance. I thoroughly enjoyed McCarty’s vivid storytelling. Her picturesque descriptions bring all parts of this story to life in a very memorable way. The ways of life in the Texas territories are centre to the story, while at the same time, explosive chemistry takes centre stage.

Getting to know Tracker on a much deeper level here was fantastic. I have a whole new appreciation for how he sees himself and the values that he holds. He has depths that I would have never imagined, making him a complexly loveable hero for this tale. Finally meeting Ari was also a treat. Her strength of character alongside her trials and fears were quite revealing. She was a formidable woman & the perfect partner for Tracker. Surrounded by the rest of Hell’s Eight you have a cast of characters that will capture your heart & soul.

This novel was definitely a great addition to the Hell’s Eight series. It was captivating in its own right and even more so in the context of the series as a whole.
