In the shadows of the Old West, that untamed land, live bands of outlaws and outsiders. In a time when fevers could fell whole towns, these few survivors are marked. Marked…and forever changed.

Sam Kane is the oldest brother, the steadfast son and the confident marshal.  He’s never met a problem too hot to handle until a gang behind a string of robberies across the territory set their sights on his town.  Now with the bank’s gold inexplicably missing from a locked safe, the town hunting the elusive thieves and a passionate redhead with a fiery secret in his jail, Sam has his hands full.

Scarlett Morning Star lived in seclusion in the mountains of West Texas most of her life.  She longs for adventure, but with seven very protective older brothers, adventure is hard to come by.  When she tags along uninvited on their latest escapade, she is left behind during a bank robbery and finds herself in the custody of the very sexy town marshal.

The town wants to lynch her, the Marshal wants answers and her brothers want her back, can Scarlett keep it together or will her explosive secret burn them all?

Her life.  His badge.  Their fight.

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 you’re 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 to 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.
