    Review Copy Provided By~Author

    When ruggedly handsome Marshal Sam Kane discovers Scarlett Morning Star and her brothers robbing his bank you quickly realize this is not going to be your typical western romance. Ms. Long weaves paranormal elements into the Wild West so gracefully that shape shifting, fire-starting and psychic ability naturally blend into the rough and tumble town of Hel Dorado.

    Sam Kane and his brothers are quintessential cowboys; every bit the alpha-male with a swagger and strength that define the Marlboro man. But don’t write off Scarlett and her band of brothers who are equally strong and defiant. The firestorm between Sam and Scarlett scorches through the pages. Rivalries ensue among both sets of brothers waging a war to keep and protect family names.

    This is the first in a series and I fell in love with the Kane’s and the Morning Star’s. Not since Bonanza has there been such an interesting group of brothers (on each side). Sam and Scarlett’s tale is so rich that it leaves the reader longing for the next brother’s story. And once you meet them, it’s clear that each has a story waiting to be told.

    I highly recommend this book even if western’s aren’t your normal read. WARNING: Bring water. It’s awfully hot out in Hel Dorado.

    Don't miss the old west boys!

    1850. Sam is the marshal of Dorado, and one of the Kane brothers, he’s in charge of keeping the peace. When the vault of his town is broken into and gold stolen he find only the redheaded vixen is his hands. While the others run away with the gold, some of the town people want the girl stringed up and hanged. Taking the girl, Scarlett, to the Kane family ranch for safe keeping until she can be judged doesn’t work the way Sam would like. Riding to the ranch with her awakes desires he thought he’d already gotten out of his system, but she’s different, not to mention beautiful, strong and curvy as hell.

    Scarlett and her brothers are different, marked with unearthly abilities, so when Scarlett is captured the gloves come off and it bodes ill for the small town of Dorado. Scarlett and Sam butt heads but their attraction is undeniable, so what does Scarlett truly want? Her freedom, her brothers or perhaps something that only Sam, her warden, can give her?

    A sexy western where the rules of physic don’t apply!

    Set in the old west where men are men and women are in a less favorable position comes a romance with a paranormal twist, werewolves, fire starters, psychics and cowboys how can you ask for more? Well you don’t, because this books great!

    You easily slip into the roll of the story, and find it hard to stop reading, especially when things spice up with Scarlett and Sam. With thread approaching Horado in the aftermath of Scarlett's capture it’s up to the Kane family to protect it, and the Kane brothers are nothing if not honorable.

    I loved Sam, loved his struggle to set his emotions about Scarlett right, he tries so hard to be rude and indifferent but his walls keep cracking showing he wants so much more from her. Scarlett is a great heroine, strong willed during the time of timid women, and not to mention powerful if she could control her power. The Kane brothers were such a pleasure to read, they are though, playful in the hot brotherly way.

    I truly liked this story, it had that western feel to it with sexy cowboys and one hot marshal and great supporting cast of brothers on both sides of the couple! This is definitely one of my favorite western romances I’ve read in ages!

    If you like your men little rough around the edges, honest and handsome - with handsome brothers! - and your stories with a paranormal twist then this book is for you! Don’t miss these men of the old west!

    It took me a bit to get into this one but I'm glad I stuck it through. I'm normally not into reading westerns but the paranormal aspect intrigued me. The heat between the 2 main characters Sam and Scarlett is tangible from the start. Her brothers and her were robbing the bank and she was the only one caught. To keep her safe from the towns people stringing her up Sam decides to take her to his family home, The Flying K.

    Sam's trying to fight his attraction to her since she's an outlaw and Scarlett who has never really left her family home is excited for the adventure but is worried for Sam and his family when her brothers will come looking for her.

    The banter between the two was very fun. Scarlett is such a sassy character who has a big heart and doesn't want anyone to get hurt, but does not take well to people making decisions for her. And Sam is a Marshall who has to up hold the law, but fighting his attraction for her and wanting to trust in her.

    The sexual tension between the two is a slow burn through out the whole book. If your looking for lots of sex, then this one isn't it. There were a few sexual scenes but the main two don't have a fast hook up. It was still a very hot read all together. The anticipation of it and the build up was great. I absolutely adored Scarlett and Sam's brothers. Though there were too many too remember and who had what ability, out of Scarlett's family.

    Overall it was very sweet and still steamy enough that I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to read more in the series and explore the other brothers. They really helped make the story.
