Gunslinger Caden Miller is getting itchy feet his best friends and the rest of Hells Eight (apart from Ace)are married and settled. So he decides to leave and go Kansas to find gold at a mine that was blown up in the last book.

this was not a bad read much better than the last two books and I am looking foward to reading Ace's book how ever long that may take.
By this point in the series everyone is so real & alive to me that I feel as if I’ve lived alongside them on Hell’s Eight. These men, this family, has become part of me, as has the thought that family is the people who will always stand for you, no matter what. The main couple in this novel definitely stood out in this one. The growth and change in Maddie throughout was fantastic. The way that McCarty developed her really gave a sense of all that she’d been through, and who she really is. Caden’s reactions were so priceless and genuine that you can’t help but love him, even when you want to call him out for being a dolt.
This exciting story held me in its grips throughout. McCarty’s continued development throughout this fantastic series had definitely held me in its grips. It was a joy to read & I can’t wait to see what happens next.
The main conflict occurs when Caden finds himself marrying Maddie at the end of a shotgun. He feels betrayed by Maddie. He says some pretty hurtful things to her as a result. I thought that the forgivness was glossed over. It was more like they just gave up being hurt rather than having actually talked it over and forgiven each other.
I have really loved all the books in the series up to this point. While I didn't dislike this book, I also didn't like it nearly as much as the others. If I had read this book, without having read the others in the series, I might have given it a four star rating. The others have set such a high standard, however, that this book really pales by comparison.
