But in the West, the rules aren’t always played according to Hoyle. I hope the author writes the sequel, the story certainly lends itself to it, even if our two couples are happily paired off at the end.

They have a very popular series that I could barely get through the first book of because of its overuse of dialogue tags and adverbs. Dec 30, Kathleen rated it agigail was amazing Shelves: A Few Good Fish.

Smashwords – According to Hoyle – A book by Abigail Roux – page 1

Louis, all as the marshals transport their prisoners to trial in Louisiana. A few minor anachronisms abjgail quibble over to which only the most curmudgeonly soul could take exception.

There were quite a few funny moments like: Baird wants them to steal a native artifact from the army for him.


The line between heroes and villains is narrow and indistinct. Cage has terrible secrets, which come to light in captivity, but it’s Gabriel’s affection that wins out. Such a fun western romp! Even if there is more action than romance, the feelings of the protagonists are always important and they lead their actions and color their motives, so I didn’t feel the romance was lacking and I also think the infrequent sex was perfectly substituted by the sizzling anticipation.

That makes for an interesting interaction. I listen once before and this 2d time o fully Apreciate the story and the rich characters.

Somebody enlighten me please. Then end was also a bit disappointing. Flynn harbors his secret love; Wash is a man of the law, but he is also compassionate and a romantic at heart; Cage hides his past; Gabriel is a puzzle, from his cultivated accent to his cold killer instinct, but also ready to give his heart away. His gruff voice and range was spot on for a western.

This was such a well written book with great pace, character development and plot. But, mostly Wash They four men build a tight comaraderie over the course of this book–and the resolution is clearly meant to build into a new adventure. A past volleyball star who specializes in sarcasm and painful historical accuracy, she currently spends her time coaching high rouux volleyball and investigating the mysteries of single motherhood.

May 20, Tami rated it it was amazing Shelves: Men are out to kill Rose, ever since he refused to get involved in a heist of a mysterious artifact, but Flynn is determined to deliver him, regardless of how unsure Wash is.


I really enjoyed this even though I’m not a huge Western fan.

I’m not a fan of older westerns but I thoroughly enjoy Abigail Roux so I reluctantly got this read because I was tired of listening to sap and had read Cut and Run for the 5th time recently. And who will find themselves accorving possession of what he treasures most? It was just that good even with a few smaller issues! It was reissued because it was previously at a different publisher Dreamspinner and is now with Riptide. He will do abiggail job regardless of how interesting he finds the prisoners, but they make him think hard about his own secret attraction for his riding buddy, Wash.

He struggles against the feelings that want Wash as more than a friend. It can’t be over!!!! Unfortunately or fortunately for him, he has very perceptive company. The characters are written in such a way that the reader thinks they know these guys and that would be true, but there are layers.
