Lists with This Book. I highly recommend and give this 4.
Dec 30, Kathleen rated it it was amazing Shelves: No eBook available Amazon. The plot itself is intriguing enough to keep pulling me along, and if the artifact never really got explored well, I was okay with that, because it was about the journey rkux get there, not the actual goal.
So much fun with a dash of romance thrown in. Down on the Farm. It was all very exciting and kept me guessing. By the close ofthe inhabitants of the American West had earned their reputation as rohx and dangerous. The mystery is supposed to be part of the fun. Dec 28, Ruth rated it really liked it. The story opens with US Marshal Eli Flynn and his fellow marshal, William Henry ‘Wash’ Washington sent to pick up prisoners and transport them for their appointment with court and probably the noose.
I had wished for more steam, and to better understand this Native artifact, but it seems that will be reserved for the next story.
Very different from what I usually read from Roux, According To Hoyle is very much about the story and not so much about the romantic relationship s. He did a remarkable job with four main characters and a handful of minor characters, three perspectives.
I’d never heard it before and I appreciated how Roux incorporated it into this story. Six Degrees of Separation. In the midst of all this is the man who actually took on the artifact job, the evil Stringer. Finding sentences like this, Cage blinked rapidly at him and Gabriel smiled crookedly. This was such a well written book with great pace, character development and plot. Tastes change Probably more like 2.
See my review title. Feb 13, Heather K dentist in my spare time added it Shelves: They are all very interesting men, very different from each other, and the interaction between them is amazing.
He’s hunted out for use by the Secret Service for information about a Native artifact he may or may not have, but he doesn’t wish to cooperate and is subsequently jailed for trial–it seems folks are always attacking Gabriel, hoping to be faster on the draw than the legendary killer.
Can’t Hide From Me. December 29, ISBN: Tantor Audio Whispersync for Voice-ready. Westerns aren’t normally my thing, but this one – everything from the unusual setting on a Mississippi steamer to the characters is just perfect, the tension and the characters building alongside each other.
Now, Cage is a mute so I was really glad to get his narrative so I could know what he was thinking even though he couldn’t speak. The characters are written in such a way that the reader thinks they know these guys and that would be true, but there are layers.
Baird can’t have loose ends so tells Stringer to take Rose.
The story left things in a good place for all the heroes. It’s worth every minute. Flynn is in love with Wash, but he doesn’t know if he can share his feelings with his friend, or if he is able to.

It would have been great if Wash had been more pronounced. He will do his job regardless of how interesting he finds the prisoners, but they make him think hard about his own secret attraction for his riding buddy, Wash.
How does this one compare? The story winds along abigaill fascinating development to fascinating development, abigqil by characters that rise above Western archetypes to become fully fleshed, entertaining people. I really enjoyed this even though I’m not a huge Western fan. There had to have been at least some frontierswomen on the boat since she later mentions it being full of people from the West.
I’m not good at the comparison game, but that’s what it felt like, to me. Women on the frontier weren’t like women on the cities. My thanks to Riptide Publishing for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review. I am both sorry and glad for waiting this long to read this story. While Wash and Flynn along with their prisoners head toward New Orleans others seek out a powerful artifact and will do whatever it takes to possess it.
The relationships that were forged between these four men were great to see grow in either cacording or love. Louis, all as the marshals transport their prisoners to trial in Louisiana. Cage though he is my favorite. The richness and complexity of the plotting hlyle as a kind of extended magic trick, seducing the reader into a balls-out showdown that kept me reading far accordinng the wee hours. The concept that a man may only kill if backed into a corner is antiquated.
Cage was easily my favorite character.
