Description from the publisher:
Sometimes honor comes with a price. Sometimes it comes with love…

Doctor Parker MacSweeny treats the folks of Prospect Springs. He's well respected, has a reputation as being a fine doctor and tends to anyone who crosses his threshold—even if they aren't in good standing with the law. He's lived an adventurous life, bedding lots of ladies, never thinking of settling down with just one. He's been content with his practice and going several towns over to take advantage of the brothels there. He doesn't like mixing business and pleasure.

When a woman comes to town masquerading as someone from Parker's past, everything changes. She's not who she first claims to be—hell, she's not even who she says she is next. The beautiful, strong, amazingly talented woman gets his thoughts all jumbled and his groin hard. She's more than she appears to be and he damn well plans on uncovering all her secrets and then getting her to accept his claim. One proves easier than the other.

Warning: This novella contains strong language and shape shifting cowboys of the future who will melt your socks off. This novella also has explicit, graphic sexual content and is not for the faint of heart.

This is the second book in the Prospect Springs Shifters series.  Though it would stand alone, I believe it best to read both and in order.

While Jon and Molly were getting reacquainted (see Blaze of Glory), Parker MacSweeny is peeling back the layers to discover who Lynn is.  She isn’t Molly.  She also isn’t Lynn…, but she is his mate.  Though he has never had an interest in monogamy, his wolf has already claimed her.  Will she accept the claim?  Will he discover her deepest secrets?

I am not admitting how long I stayed on the treadmill with this one… if I admit it, I’ll be expected to walk that long every day!  Let me just say, I couldn’t quit until I knew the answers.  My only complaint is that the next book isn’t yet ready!!

I loved Molly in Blaze of Glory, just because of what she was willing to do for her friend.  Now I love her even more.  Her family story broke my heart; I just wanted to hug her and tell her that it’s not her fault what others may believe.  When you know the truth, the rest is petty jealousies or fear.  She is such a strong and smart girl.  We should all aspire to be her.  Doc/Parker needed to be clouted upside the head and I cheered when his mother finally did it!

I absolutely love this series and the quirky combination of futuristic cowboys on an Earth that has moved on.  Mandy M. Roth provides a little more of the background information about why the future is such an odd combination of steampunk cowboys and space aliens.  Excellent story, amazing characters, and creative history.
