Maverick Wild gave me many hours of entertainment this weekend. It is the second story in the Morgan brothers duo by Stacey Kayne.

Chance Morgan is eager to continue his carefree bachelor existence and not at all eager to get married. However, meeting Cora Mae Tindale again puts a wrench in those plans. Cora is the daughter of his hated stepmother. When they were kids, she was a boon companion who Chance and his brother enjoyed corrupting. Many times they got the young girl in trouble with her me

I honestly wanted to like this book, and the setup was great, but I could not stand Chance, the "hero."

Chance and his twin brother Tucker hated their stepmother, who disrupted their home, drove their father away with her bad personality, and frequently had them whipped for no reason. When they were twelve, they ran away to join the war. They left behind their nine year old stepsister, Cora Mae. Chance and Cora Mae were especially close and she made him promise to come back for her when he could.
I'm not one for historical romances but I've made some exceptions.

I'm so happy I made an exception here. This story was one of the teasing stories where the two characters get close then spring apart, get close, spring apart, etc etc. As the reader we know about the issues plaguing both characters and see when a button has been pushed, but the characters have no idea and are then hurt and confused by the hot and cold game.

It's difficult to pull off one of these types of stories because it can fe

Recommends it for: I recommend every book by Stacey Kayne
Stacey Kayne writes the best Western stories, with unforgettable characters.
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED everything about this Historical romance....Call me WEIRD but LOVED that Tucker (and his twin) were so protective of their little step-sis. LOVED how she, Cora Mae (yuck too the name though)came back. Tuck promised to come back for her. And they ended up falling in LOVE!!! I would DEFINITELY read another book by Stacey Kayne!
A nice story that kept my interest. A quick and easy read but probably not something that I'll remember much about for long. Some of the situations just seemed glossed over. So a fairly light read.
Anothr good one. At the beginning I didn't like Cora so much. She seemed to me not sincere but she paid a high price for having such a horrible mother. He was great and so likeable! I love Tucker family.
this is a really cool and hot book
4.5 stars!!
I like the heroine in this book but unfortunately cannot warm up to the hero as much. I do not understand his "denial" and his need of distance to the heroine. In the prologue chapter with those few interactions between the hero, his twin brother and the heroine, I can tell the hero truly cared for the heroine a lot when they were children where his twin brother is less affectionate towards the heroine. I understand the hero gone through hardship and a very tough life, but why did he find it har ...more
The second in the Wild series blowed me away. It all started with a 12 year old boys promise to a 9 year old girl.

Chase and Tucker at the tender age of 12 decided after their dad took off for war that they were not going to stick around with their God awful step mother. Even though they adore their 9 year old step sister Cora.

"You can't leave me!" was what Chase got as they were ready to ride out from the girl he really cares for.

"We'll come for you when the fighting's over"
"Soon as we
I thought I would like this book more because the plot seemed like something I'd enjoy.

The plot is wonderful and goes something like this: Chance has always liked/loved his stepsister Cora Mae. He and his brother however despised her mother and ran away from home just to get away from her.

Many years later Chance and Cora Mae are reunited when she runs away from her mother and goes to live on Chance and Tucker's ranch.

Of course sparks fly because Chance does not trust Cora Mae anymore and she has
Chance is stepbrother to Cora Mae. He and his twin brother (Tucker) left her, running away from Cora Mae’s mother, but he swears to come back to her. Only he doesn’t, and more than ten years later is Cora Mae who goes to find Chance at his and Tucker’s ranch.

This looked promising, but then, when Cora Mae meets Chance again, nothing is left of his caring stepbrother, and he is now a paranoid distrustful being. And Cora Mae is... I don’t really get to know her; she wasn’t really well drawn up, pr
I liked this book it was a fun read. Although, I didn't read the first one this one was easy to understand, so you don't have to read the first to understand the second book but it would be helpful if you want to learn more about Tucker and Skyler. I liked Garreth he was such a sweet kid but felt bad for him. Poor kid he had a crush on our heroine and wanted to marry her but of course he was sixteen and our hero would kick his ass if he did lolz. This was a good book overall. I hated Winfred she ...more
Another exciting adventure this one featuring Chance & he's not particularly nice to his step sister/child hood friend. Hatred for his step mother is clouding his reasoning & guiding him to be foolish he nearly winds up dead.

Action packed and a page turner.
This was just as good as the last. Stacey Kayne's got the plotting of stories down to an art~ Can't wait for more in the Wild series! Duce should get his story, but that's probably unlikely, since the next book is Garrett's and by then, Duce would be too old. =b aww
Head in the clouds
It's 4.5 stars for enjoyment but I wasn't completely satisfied with the plot and the characters - especially Chance. I keep stressing this point but BALANCE IN RELATIONSHIPS PEOPLE.
"Hero" was a giant crybaby jerk. It made it really hard to warm up to him or to the idea of a romance between him and the heroine when I just spent every damn page of the book wanting to smack the crap out of him.

How are we supposed to believe a handsome rugged western man is this much of a spoiled angsty child.

One of the best romance novels I have read in quite a long time. The story was gripping (and realistic, I might add). The characters were very real and believable. I could not put this book down. My full review can be found at
This was so good! Cora and Chase were wonderful together. And boy, her mother was a piece of work. I haven't hated a character that much in a long, long time. I'm glad I remembered I still had to read this one to finish off the trilogy.
Ivy Deluca
Sweet typical Western romance which is a change of pace for me. Nothing earth shattering in this story and the plot is fairly standard. I liked the H/h and I enjoyed their chemistry, but overall it wasn't particularly memorable.

4.5 stars! I like this series, and this book was better than Book 1 (which I also liked a lot). This isn't just a repeat with similar heroines. On to Book 3!

Read again... 05/08/2012 - 05/09/2012
Even better the second time.
Another good book, i am liking these kind of stories, cowboys with lot of land in an estate, can be bit rad, its good for me :)
At least it was a little different in the middle and I liked the setting and the side characters too.

It's a great read but it took more then a couple of chapters to get into the story.
This one made me mad thru most of it!!
Really enjoyed it!
