A sexy pair of scoundrels run from the law—shackled together by an unbreakable iron chain.

Nicholas Brogan is an ex-pirate with years of sin branded on his soul. Samantha Delafield is a high-born lady turned devious thief.

    I have just finished reading RUN WILD written by Shelly Thacker

    I have just finished reading RUN WILD written by Shelly Thacker and found it a captivating adventure!
    I love the cover, a beautiful heroine shackled to her hero, it really reflects her captivating story!
    It's filled with action and two strong minded characters; Nicholas is an ex-pirate and Samantha a thief. This exciting adventure starts when Nicholas and Samantha are being shackled together and transported for trial to London. Will they try to escape? The runs starts.....he gets shot and she takes care of him for a full week, always shackled together. Trust will be of most importance for them to escape and be free. But for Samantha, it is difficult to trust any men. Will she trust him enough to share secrets with him? Will they fall in love while sparks flare all around them? Beautiful sexy chemistry between them! Steamy love scenes! Shelly Tacker is a very descriptive writer! The intrigue is very well written. It's fast paced! I like her style of writing. I could not put it down. I am looking forward to her next book! I highly recommend this book! Beware, her books are highly addictive! Ms. Thacker is an author to watch!

    Loved this book!



    Loved the characters, and their redemption. Great adventure, surprises, and romance. Having them shackled together was great, and their adventures because of those shackles.

    I loved this book from start to finish!!  This book had everything you could want in a romance book and more. Nick and Sam had sad tortured pasts, of which both were running from.
    The author wrote a beautiful believable story. There was lots of romance, great adventure and twists and turns that you could not figure out how it was all gonna play out in the end. 
    If i had to be leg shackled to anyone, it would definately be Nick!!  I wish there were more stars that i could give this book, it was that good.
    So grab this book and shared Nick and Sam's amazing journey, you will not be dissappointed!!  Thank you Shelly Thacker for writing this book and now you are on my list of favorite authors!!

    This is my 4th book from this author & I really like her writing. This particular book was wonderful (as were the other 3 of her books that I've read). I found it beautifully written; I loved how the hero/heroine grew from strangers & rather hostile ones at that who didn't trust each other at all (with good reason) to slowly develop feelings for each other. I especially liked how the hero who is quite bitter & thinks himself unlovable & an nonredeemable person because of his sins; learns to love Sam, the heroine. Every small thing which showed his burgeoning feelings for her gave me the tingles. Their 1st intimate encounter left me breathless. Both characters were so well written & their connection & chemistry was beautiful to read. I could hardly put the book down.

    This book was so fun to read. I was drawn in from the first chapter and found myself "sneaking away" from real life to continue reading. I even took the book to the gym with me and read while on the treadmill...I never do this! I highly recommend this book and can't wait to read more books from Shelley Thacker.
