A great short read set in the wild west. This time though it isn't a female that needs rescuing, it is her promised one, a wearwolf. Charlotte is not one woman to be stuck siting at home relying on others to save her man, she is going out to do it herself regardless the cost. This was a great read with very real characters written into a setting that was very lifelike. I was glad for once to see a woman take charge of the situation. This was a well written story and I have enjoyed most of what t ...more

Charlotte is brave and fearless in the face of her betrothed being taken from her. Joe is the love of her life and she will not stop until she gets him back. Joe longs to be with Charlotte again, but when he is, it is not what he had imagined. Will either of them survive?
I really enjoyed reading this story. Charlotte is such a strong female character. I received an A ARC of this book and am leaving my honest opinion.

Charlotte loves Joe but when she sees him get kidnapped and no-one helps to find him she tracks him to a silver mining camp using enslaved werewolves for labour. This is a short read that definitely kept my attention over a cuppa, loved the characters.

OMG I don't think i could adore this book any more, it was an amazing read!!! This is a novella that is a stand alone story. Although this is a novella it doesn't feel that way, it feels a lot longer than it actually is. The attention to detail and the descriptions of the world this book is set in, the plot line and the characters is brilliant and so detailed making this book feel extremely realistic to the reader.

The thing i loved most about this tale is Charlotte! Right from the beginning you

I loved this new Old West style shifter series.

When Joe is abducted by unknown men, Charlotte will go to any lengths to find her love, even go against her father and go out on her own to find him.

Joe is abducted and put to work in the mine fields with others like him. He knew there was predjudice against shifters and

A marriage between the wild west and the paranormal, Sarah has hitten this one right out of the ballpark! The proof that a woman will go to any lengths to rescue the man she loves is definitely front and centre when Charlotte witnesses her betrothed being beaten and taken away in the middle of the night. When no-one helps her to try and find Joe and tell her she's better off finding "someone nice and normal", she leaves the comfort of her home and begins her long search for the man she loves.

Charlotte was engaged to Joe who happened to be a werewolf. One night he was captured by a group of men that wanted him as laborer in a mine.

Charlotte had seen him get attacked and taken away and she vowed to herself that she would get him back.

I loved this book! Great characters so easy to connect too. Charlotte was a human in love with Joe a werewolf when one night he is taken. She trys to get him help but NO one will help her. So she will do it herself!

As time goes by she goes from a sweet young woman to a strong willed and amazing women, who will stop at nothing to get him back!

This was a great read the mystery and intrigue added to the twists and turns in this great story. I love how much Charlotte went though to overcome. Shift

Charlotte doesn't care that her beloved Joe is a werewolf. But then she has to watch as he is dragged away into a jail wagon. No one cares that he's been taken and she decides to find him herself.

Joe is brought to the Carver's Mining Camp and they collar him with silver and put him to work. He can't find an escape route and he is worried about what has happened to Charlotte.

Great wee read and deceptive paranormal story. Has the feel of a western and it's quite far into the story before you act

Love knows no prejudice
Charlotte is in love with her betrothed Joe, even though he’s a werewolf. After one of their nights of passion he leaves out the window to not get caught by her maid. But as Charlotte watches him leaving he’s attacked and captured by some bad guys. No one including the sheriff wants to do anything because he’s a werewolf. So she goes looking herself and gets more than she can handle. Well written and very entertaining to read this self-contained story.

I enjoyed this story of a woman determined to save her fiance. He is a wolf shifter and taken by others as slave labor. She won't give up even when others won't help her. It is a nice romance with characters that you really like and want to be happy. I am never disappointed by this author and recommend you check out her other books too.

I am voluntarily reviewing a copy I received.

I have to say while I didn't hate this fast paced story I really didn't care for it either. It was just okay!!! I really don't like leaving bad review but this story just didn't do it for me maybe the next book will be better. I voluntarily read and review this ARC I haven't been compensated in any way.

Seemed nobody wanted a were wolf even if it was turned against his will but when Joe Taylor was held captive Charlotte, was to risk her life to get him back. Interesting, entertaining and easy to read story with a decided and strong heroine, suspense, hot sex and a terrific fight that kept me fearing for the worst. Enjoyed the plot development and the HEA.
