Review - Heartaches & Hoofbeats by Maz Maddox

My rating:

Desperate to make money to help pay off his brother’s gambling debts, Jesse joins the “iron bandits” gang of train robbers. They’re a ruthless bunch, but once he falls in with them, Jesse is trapped. The gang is just about to pull off another heist when they’re intercepted by a group of lawmen lead by the centaur sheriff of Stallion Ridge. The rest of the outlaws escape, but Jesse is captured and hauled off to the jail in Stallion Ridge, where he seems destined to the gallows.

Review - The Celestial

My rating:

This review originally appeared on Speak Its Name. As “The Celestial” opens, Todd is working his claim in the mountains near Truckee, about 90 miles northeast of Sacramento. It’s about 20 years after the California gold rush started, but there are still a lot of men like Todd staking claims and hoping to strike it rich. Egged on by his irascible uncle, who was invalided in the civil war, Todd has stole away in the night, leaving his mother to care for her brother on their tumble-down farm near Sacramento.

Review - Three Men and a Bounty

My rating:

This review originally appeared on BDSM Book Reviews. Well, partner, what ya got here is a tale of the old west, about three men who find they have a right powerful hankering for each other. As if a menage wasn’t complicated enough, one of the men is a US Marshall, and a former slave. In the post civil war period, that’s a big complication. But wait, the author apparently thought, let’s make it even more complicated.
