In the shadows of the Old West, that untamed land, live bands of outlaws and outsiders. In a time when fevers could fell whole towns, these few survivors are marked. Marked…and forever changed.

Sam Kane is the oldest brother, the steadfast son and the confident marshal. He’s never met a problem too hot to handle until a gang behind a string of robberies across the territory set their sights on his town. Now with the bank’s gold inexplicably missing from a locked safe, the town hunting the elusive thieves and a passionate redhead with a fiery secret in his jail, Sam has his hands full.

Scarlett Morning Star lived in seclusion in the mountains of West Texas most of her life. She longs for adventure, but with seven very protective older brothers, adventure is hard to come by. When she tags along uninvited on their latest escapade, she is left behind during a bank robbery and finds herself in the custody of the very sexy town marshal.

The town wants to lynch her, the Marshal wants answers and her brothers want her back, can Scarlett keep it together or will her explosive secret burn them all?

Her life. His badge. Their fight.

Marshal of Hel Dorado is Heather Long‘s first book in her Fevered Hearts series.  I truly devoured this story.  Long pulled me into the cowboy world of Marshal Samuel Kane and his family.  It scuked me into the past with such brilliant clarity, I could smell the horse sweat and hay.  *sigh* It was a beautiful ride.

Marshal of Hel Dorado made me warm and fuzzy all over.  With SO many great characters and a plot that is original and amazing  – there wasn’t anything I didn’t like about Marshal of Hel Dorado.   Typically cowboy reads are not my forte, but Long’s story telling painted  vivid images through her writing that will be forever unforgettable.  The old southern charm is alive and well and worked its magic on this reader.  *fans self*

With a ribbon of paranormal woven through it, Marshal of Hel Dorado will satisfy any paranormal romance fan.  Refreshing and brilliant, I will be quick to pick up the next book in this series.  I should make a special rating for “kindle in the bathtub good’.  Seriously, VERY few books are worth bringing my kindle close to the risk of certain death by bath salts and bubbles.  Well, bitches this book was that good…that is right.  I took the Marshal into the bath with me!! 😉

Writing about horses is NOT something authors should take lightly.  I am fully confident in saying that this author knows horses.  Any horse fanatic would be comfortable in reading this story as it is very accurate.  Sometimes it is hard to recomend book to my horse loving friends when horses are part of the story.  They would all be pleasantly pleased with Marshal of Hel Dorado!

Currently Marshal of Hel Dorado is $.99 on Amazon (buy HERE) it might be the best dollar I have ever spent.

I rate Marshal of Hel Dorado 5 out of 5 Bullets!

5 Bullet Rating
