Heartache & Hoofbeats
by Maz Maddox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book surprised me. Really surprised me.
Don't get me wrong, I love shifter stories, paranormal stories and m/m stories but the idea of an alt paranormal Wild West with Centaurs? I admit it threw me for a bit. Maybe it was the idea of centaur 'size' vs. human size, maybe it's because it was set in the Wild West and I've never really gotten into historical romances. Whatever, I walked away thoroughly hooked and loving this series.
The premise is an interesting a twist on a Wild West love story. Instead of school marm and the bad guy with the heart of gold, it was a train robber who really did have have good intentions falling hard and fast for an honorable, stalwart sheriff. Throw in some serious sexual tension, snark, sass, really nasty bad guys and a bull-headed Minotaur... hehehe, bull-headed Minotaur... and it was an explosive group.
Off to read book 2. View all my reviews
