Tackling My TBR Thursday is a new weekly feature at Once Upon a Chapter. I’ve used a feature before to highlight books in my TBR pile. The difference with this feature is that once a week I am going to highlight a book from my TBR “pile” (any book listed in my GoodReads profile before 2/7/13; clearly preorders do not count) that is going to be an upcoming read. I have a goal to get my TBR down. Even if it isn’t a drastic amount, down in general would be good. To meet that goal, I’m hoping to read at least one TBR book a week.
Tucker McCade has known violence his whole life: orphaned in a massacre, abused as a “half-breed” child, trained as a ruthless Texas Ranger, he’s learned the hard way that might makes right.
So even he is shocked when he falls for Sallie Mae Reynolds, a Quaker nurse. Unable to resist Tucker’s charm, character and chiseled body, she throws herself into their torrid affair, indulging every one of her wildest sexual fantasies. Tucker’s occupation, however, is the one thing about him she can’t embrace. A staunch pacifist, Sallie Mae can’t understand how his strong, caressing hand can clench in fury or pull a trigger to take a life. In this lawless land, Tucker knows you have to fight to survive. But when Sallie Mae becomes pregnant, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to have his family — including hanging up his guns.
Every night they spend together exploring new heights of ecstasy binds them ever closer, slowly erasing their differences…until the day Tucker’s past comes calling, precipitating an explosive showdown between her faith, his promise and the need for revenge… – via GoodReads
