    Very enjoyable read Took me a while to remember where the story left off with Shadow's situation this is not a stand alone read but once I got up to speed I started remembering why I like this series Sometimes I find Sarah McCarty's writing a little choppy and her dialogue is not always easy to follow but she does tell a good story In this book Shadow Ochoa who is wanted by the law for a crime he committed in Tracker's Sin is minutes away from being hung for stealing a horse until a brave and beautiful young ChineseAmerican Fei Yen Tseng woman steps in and saves him from the hangman's noose She needs a temporary husband to help her with her gold claim and Shadow will do just fine But what she doesn't count on is having an attraction and burning desire for a man who could never be in the life she's destined to leadLoved the heroine in this one Fei Yen 23 was brave smart and passionate I thought she clicked with Shadow her Dragon and taught him a thing or two about love Loved learning about her Chinese culture and the things that were expected of her and how she was 'limited' because of her mixed blood Enjoyed her relationship with her 'full blooded' Chinese cousin Lin too some nice scenes with the two of them I liked our hero too Shadow 31 had a tendency to try to protect the people who loved him by pushing them away He didn't think he had much to offer a woman because of the pain and violence in his past But that didn't work with Fei Yen or with the rest of his Hell's Eight 'brothers' I was so happy when they appeared in the story to save his butt and to kick it Nice bit of suspense at the end involving Fei Shadow the Hell's Eight guys a corrupt Army general a gold mine and some dynamitehad me biting my nails with worryThe love scenes? Not too many but steamy enough Definitely passionate and I could feel the love between the two Very sexy wedding night All right? he asked his voice harsher than he intendedYes oh yesWhat do you need?Nails digging into his shoulders she sighed More Just So a pretty good addition to the series Maybe not my favorite of the bunch I still like Sam's Creed the best but one that fans of the series should enjoy It kept me turning the pages which is enough for me A solid 4 stars I received this ARC from Netgalley

    57 I returned this to the library back on the 10th of June but somehow I managed to forget to review it I will attempt to write a comprehensive review despite the time gap35 stars better than the last Hell's Eight book I read but still not uite up to the level of Caine's story Fei Yen is my favourite heroine of the whole series She and Shadow were a great couple and I loved the way she brought out Shadow's softer side Why do these Hell's Eight men always think they're cold hearted bastards who will only bring pain and suffering to the women they love? They always sell themselves short and that gets so frustrating I loved Fei Yen's expertise with explosives and the enjoyment she seemed to get whilst using them Not a particularly comprehensive or cohesive now that I read back over it review but that's about all I can think of regarding memorable scenes and my feelings while reading them

    The hero and heroine in this book have really met their match Sparks fly There is a really sense of the West in this entry into the series as our Chinese American heroine who knows how to blow things up meets our badass Mexican Indian hero They heal each other and have awesome sexy times A great adventure

    Shadow half Mexican half Native American is the dark and brooding of the twins although Tracker's not exactly unicorns and rainbows Shadow love that name is on the run after killing the big bad guy at the end of Tracker's Sin that was after Desi and her twin whatserface Fei half Chinesehalf white is the pretty awesome dynamite throwing heroine who saves Shadow from being hung hanged???? She needs him to find some gold so she can rescue her fully Chinese cousin The book throws in nice tidbits of Chinese culture For example as a half caste Chinese Fei would basically get the bottom of the barrel on the marital roundup which is saying something as any arranged marriage would be bad enoughShadow falls for Fei and vice versa in a big ole case of insta lust I wasn't buying I liked each character uite a bit but just did not buy the love Like his twin Shadow kind of fell into a miring martyrdom that got in the way of the romance The Hell's Eight bunch show up at the end to kick some butt thank goodness They threaten to teach Shadow a lesson from running away from their bro love but that didn't go anywhere either A good brotherly smackdown is always funCould have been so much better with a little adventure character development and bathing Every time they jumped into bed all I could think of is they both really need a bathBarely sueaked by with three stars

    35 4 StarsGenre Historical Adult Romance Early American Heat Barometer 3 out of 5 flamesI started reading Sarah McCarty many years ago and fell in love with the Early American timeline she writes about in both Hell’s Eight and the Promises series They seem very realistic from the rough terrain to the rougher times Both are fantastic series with the kind of heroes I love and crave all alpha all possessive all honorable all loyal and above all sexy as hell They are REAL MEN strong and protective and they choose what is right over the lawI thoroughly enjoyed SHADOWS STAND in the audio version The narrator did a beautiful job with each character’s voice and distinguishing between male and female Also the Chinese women’s submissive culture and attitude came across loud and clear The story takes off uickly as Fei saves Shadow from the hangman’s noose She needs a man to marry so she can have a fresh start and collect her gold claim Since she is Chinese and a woman she has no rights Why she picked Shadow I don’t know but she lucked out because Shadow was a goldmineThis was a nice easy listen that kept my interest There were a few holes in the story line that I felt I needed closure view spoiler mainly the gold her father and what happen to her cousin Lin hide spoiler

    I do love the Hell's Eight series I thought that Shadow and Fei Yen were an intriguing couple Shadow who is on the run from the military after the last book is in Kansas He was caught horse stealing and is set to hang But pretty Fei Yen has other uses for Shadow and involkes a little used law that she will marry the convict She needs his help in keeping her gold claim from being jumped So our story goes on from there The storyline is kind of all over the place and her usual hot as a fire cracker love scenes seemed a bit toned down to me I did enjoy the story but it never seem to uite reach its full potential with me The editing however was much better than some of the books in the series have been I do look forward to the next one in the series Although the rest of Hell's Eight comes in at the very end of the book I don't think you would be lost if you hadn't read the other books in the series

    As a half Chinese woman in a white man's world Fei needs support and can think of only one way to get it by saving a man about to be hanged and marrying him She picks Shadow Ochoa because he's a half breed and less likely to look down on her mixed heritage but when she sees him for the first time her resolve falters Dragon She had enough dragons on her back She didn't need another one But Fei is desperate her cousin Lin is in danger her father is useless and it's illegal for her to own the gold claim she's foundShadow has no interest in marrying and and not even that much interest in staying alive But having accepted Fei's offer and gone through a wedding ceremony he finds himself drawn to her All he had to offer a woman was the pain and violence of his own upbringing and no decent woman deserved that and suddenly he was thinking of rights and possibilitiesThis was an interesting pairing because Fei in many ways is as dark and tough as Shadow is even uncomfortably ruthless at times Reuired by her culture to feign submissiveness she's become very skilled at manipulating people and situations through the use of guile and potions even drugging her beloved cousin to have an uninterrupted night with Shadow But though I found them intriguing as a couple the story overall never really gelled for me There seemed to be a lot of filler especially in the sort of dialogue that just goes back and forth and never really gets anywhereThis was my first time reading McCarty Although Shadow's Stand is clearly a direct seuel to the previous book in the series I didn't feel lost though I suspect I might have had a richer understanding of Shadow's character if I had read the previous books reviewed from e arc provided by netGalley
