Heather Long has brought us the much anticipated sequel of Marshall of Hel Dorado with the release of BRAVE ARE THE LONELY. We finally get to see behind the mystery that is surrounding Cody and his wolf. The battle of wills that dominates this character leads to an exciting adventure that will make is almost impossible to put down. I was reading this book during a large reader’s conference and I was picking it up during every spare moment I could find. Being able to experience Cody’s struggle of keeping control over his domineering wolf personality was intense at moments and hilarious at others. Our heroine, Mariska, was just strong enough of a female character to fit perfectly with the Alpha male without being overpowering. We also get to see more of the other characters we grew to love in the first book of the Fevered Hearts series. Having a taste of these other personalities makes me want to scream for more. If you want a read that will give you the best of mystery, suspense, and steamy romance, you do not have to look further then BRAVE ARE THE LONELY. I cannot wait until the next book in the Fevered Hearts is released so I can dive into this imaginative world once again.
The chemistry between Cody and Mariska is electric. Heather Long knows how to grab the reader right from the first sentence. You will be unable to put this book down. Highly recommended read. You will love this book.
This was better than the first book. Scarlett and Sam's story was great reading, but the story of Mariska and Cody was riveting. Can't wait for Wyatt's book. Great series!!!
Posted on Romancing the Book's blog Reviewed by Sherri Review Copy Provided by the Author Cody Morningstar’s wolf is in mourning for a lost love. Cody the man is struggling with the balance of man and wolf when the stakes are raised and he encounters Mariska, a fiery traveler. Their relationship burns up the pages as they are stalked by Distain seeking revenge against Cody’s wolf. In the final encounter we learn that Distain has a secret of his own that tests both man and wolf. Kid Kane features well in this story as the ever present brother and supporter of Cody. Not without his own fair share of getting into trouble, Ms. Long weaves in Kid’s similar conflicts of loneliness and isolation. The bonding and brotherhood between Kid and Cody deepens as questions about Kid are confirmed and his story is left queued up for a future book. The second book in the Fevered Hearts line up continues the strong alpha males with themes of family, love, and independence. Cody’s internal conflict and its impact on those around them are well done creating a suspenseful page turner. The encounters between Cody’s dual personalities and Mariska are erotic and explosive. The banter and commitment that grows between Kid and Cody defines the brotherhood between them. Brave Are the Lonely is highly recommended.
This book is about Cody (a wolf shifter) and Mariska (a gyspy princess). It is full of emotion, romance, and struggle—Oh, and don’t let me forget the amazing SEX! Cody is licking wounds or a broken heart when he comes across Mariska and even though they fight it there is no denying it. Brave are the Lonely is book 2 in Heather Long’s Fevered Hearts series. I absolutely enjoyed book 1 Marshal of Hel Dorado, her writing twists really intrigued me and kept it exciting to read. Ms. Long has kept me reading and wanting more with book 2. This is not a series you want to miss! If you’re into Western, Paranormal, and/or Historical you’re gonna love this. You get a bit of everything with this series and the writing, characters, and story line all keep you coming back for more and wishing that Ms. Long could write faster!!
