Orphaned in a massacre, abused as a "half-breed" child, trained as a ruthless Texas Ranger, Tucker McCade's learned the hard way that you have to fight to survive. So he is shocked when he falls for Sally Mae, a Quaker nurse.

Unable to resist Tucker, Sally Mae throws herself into their torrid affair. Tucker's occupation, however, is the one thing she can't embrace. A staunch pacifist, she can't understand how his gentle hand can clench in fury or pull a trigger to take a life.

But when Sally Mae becomes pregnant, Tucker is willing to do whatever it takes to have his family--including hanging up his guns. Every night they spend together binds them ever closer--until the day his past comes calling....

8/2 - Tucker's Claim is just not clicking for me like Caine's Reckoning and Sam's Creed did. I don't like the language Sally Mae uses, ostensibly because she's a Quaker. I have no idea how Quaker's talk now, let alone 150 years ago, but I can't stand the constant thys, thees, and thous. It's really annoying and distracting from the flow of the narrative, especially during the sex scenes. I don't if I'll DNF this or not. I'm about to go overseas and I'm not sure I want to sacrifice good book space for mediocre books, plus it'll be due back while I'm away and I know it's not worth risking a fine if I can't renew it till I get back.

Reading a few of the low star reviews I'm seeing a theme and it looks to only get worse with sex toy anachronisms. I find it exceedingly hard to believe that sex toys were a big thing in the 1860s wild west or, that an uninitiated Quaker woman would be fine and dandy about them being introduced on her first night with a man other than her husband. To be continued...

10/2 - Read another 30 pages and I just couldn't be bothered with Sally Mae's language any longer. DNF on page 60.
