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

This book was ok. I saw the cover and immediately thought "yes please!" I didn't realize it was set in the 1800s. Not that I mind because I love historical but the cover is totally misleading. No Bueno!

Anywho moving on...

The book started off interesting Cora Mae had secrets and Chance was a the biggest asshole. Love books like that. I was getting into it. I was hoping there was a good reason for his foul treatment against Cora Mae and Cora's secret was juicy that I was speed reading just to find

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

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.

Chance Morgan has sworn never to marry and definitely never to give his heart away, the only ones he loves are his twin brother and his brood. He watched his father's life torn apart by his step mother and he won't allow the same to happen to him. His only regret: Cora Mae, his step sister, she was just as caught up in his step mothers cruelty as he was, only when he managed to escape he had to leave her behind. However, Cora Mae has turned up in his life again, no longer an adorable eight year ...more

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.

I'm sorry, but this book just frustrated me to the point, that I didn't finish it. I really hated Chance in this book, he was such a jerk! I expected something completely different. Something where a new friendship would be built and over time they would fall in love, but that wasn't the case at all (Though that's my fault, I should have read the description.)
So mostly the plot sucked + the two main characters were kinda meh and one rude af.
I still love her writing style though and I loved seein

Maverick Wild

Alright, let me start by saying I picked this up somehow not know it was an old western period piece, or whatever you call those. I honestly hate them. I'm a contemporary girl. Nothing wrong with the others they are just not for me. That being said I paid for this so I read it. Although this is not my favorite type of book, it was well written and had some great plot. Would I read more books like this? Probably not. Am I glad I finished it? Yup. It was really good for a type of book

This one had a plot that made absolutely no sense to me, plus it had none of the fantastically funny dialogue of Mountain Wild, the third volume of this lightweight historical romance series about brother ranchers in post Civil-War Wyoming. I know I am reading this series backwards but it has no bearing on my understanding of the plot of Maverick Wild because they are each self-contained stories that could be read as stand-alones. The only time there was life in the book was when one of my favor ...more

Cora and Chance. I haven't read the first book, but it didn't effect my enjoyment of this one. Chance and his twin brother have bad memories of Cora's mother. When she'd married their father, life had become unbearable. At the age of 13, they ran away to join the rebel forces in the civil war. Twenty years later, Cora shows up at their ranch to a mixed welcome. Chance's brother welcomes her back, but Chance can only seem to think of her as their evil step mom's kid and not as the little red head ...more

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"
"Promise?"

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

"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 http://danienewcomb.blogspot.com/2013....

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

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.

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.
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.
