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....

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.
