MORE THAN JUST A GOOD READ April 18 1998
By S. Chris Mikalson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Who of us hasn't, at one time or another, lost trust in those we love most? How we deal with that feeling of betrayal can overshadow our lives. This is the theme of Maggie Shayne's "Badland's Bad Boy"; how to trust, who to trust. Do you receive trust and then return it, or does it have to be given unconditionaly in order that it be returned? Taylor McCoy is a Comanche who was raised in a white society. Given away by her birth mother, lied to by her adoptive parents, she trusts nothing but her own gut instincts. When she is hired to excavate a Comanche site at Emerald Flat, she meets Wolf Shadow who claims to be a spirit from the past. He tells her that she is desecrating sacred ground and must stop. Wes Brand is a half-breed Comanche who has been raised by the Brands. He has become close to Turtle, an ancient shaman, and has learned from him the legend of Wolf Shadow and Little Sparrow. He has dressed as Wolf Shadow, hoping to drive Taylor McCoy from the site. But as he stays close to her, she wins his heart. Should he drive her from the site and save the land, as the old shaman has asked, or should he tell her the truth and betray his friend, Turtle? This is a beautifully, touching story of love in two realms, earth and spirit. Maggie Shayne has delved into the dark recesses of man's troubled psyche, pulling forth the emotions he conceals, exposing them to the light of truth.

Extremely good! May 7 2014
By CINDY F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This story was not only a extremely good romantic book, but it was also very educational, too. I found myself so mesmerized by the Indian cultures, as well as their way of life. I've always felt the same exact way, whenever I've read books written by Kathleen Eagle, too. I especially love 'Turtle' what a fascinating man. He's the type of person I could sit down and talk with for hours on end, and never become bored. Of course I feel that way about all of the older generation. They lived long fascinating lives, and they have seen so many things throughout their lifetimes that we'd never know about unless we are willing to sit down and listen.

I am really and truly starting to fall in love with this series, as well as with all the characters involved. They're not a bunch of wealthy people setting out to set the world on fire; they're just a bunch of close nit family members who choose to stand behind one another 100%, through thick and thin. IMO- It's the way all family should be.

I would highly recommend not only this book, but this whole series. They are all filled with lots of romance, a heart heart-break or two, fun filled mystery, and exciting suspense. But most of all they show a close nit family, that really and truly love & respect one another for who they really are, good or bad.

I often brag on Maggie Shayne and The Littlest Cowboy just gives me more to talk about. Shayne flawlessly combines all of my favorite attributes in a book. She gives us a lot of amazing characters with great personalities and physical descriptions. Then there is the deep suspense, a ton of action, and a great romance. When Shayne tells you a story, you’re there. You can feel the tension and smell the gunpowder.
The book and the entire series are “romantic suspense” so my warnings for them seem obvious. There is graphic violence, a lot, in many forms. Also, it contains graphic language and some sex. The sex isn't extremely graphic, nor is there a lot of it but it is there. Last, this is not a light fun happy read. It's tense and emotion packed. I know I had a tear or two come to eye.
The Littlest Cowboy is the first novel in The Texas Brands Series. The Series revolves around the Brand family, brothers Garrett, Wes, Elliot, Adam, and Ben and their sister Jessi and a bunch of cousins. I really loved this book, and want to get the rest of the series! Oh, and this was a FREE download for Kindle on Amazon.

**UPDATE 3/17/15** I have now read this ENTIRE series and I love all of the book as much as I did the first one. Each book brings you a new story with new love, tension, and suspense but still involves the other characters as well. Each book can be read stand alone, but you will want to read them all!

3.5-4 stars...

Yes, some of this one was kinda corny and yes, some of the things that Wes did seemed totally out of character. Even though some of this one was a little far-fetched… at least in the beginning, I still loved Badlands Bad Boy. It’s those darn Brand guys, gals and kids. They pull me in every time. *sigh*

Wes may be the black sheep of the Brand family for obvious reasons, but that’s just the people from the outside looking in. To every one of his brothers and sisters, he’s their brother. He’s spent most of his life avoiding his Comanche roots and now it’s his turn to open the mind of another person trying to do the same thing. His love and respect for Turtle makes him do things that he would never consider.

If not for the magic in this one, I might not have enjoyed it as much. That aspect made this more than a simple love story. As crazy as it sounds, it made it more real. It also took me a while to really like Taylor, but once again, I have the Brands to thank for that. By the end of the story I was kind of hoping that readers would see more of Wes and Taylor because I have a feeling that their story is far from over.

Next up for the Texas Brand is Long Gone Lonesome Blues and I have no doubt that this one is going to be a heart breaker.
the Badlands Bad Boys didn't meet up to expectations March 13 2015
By Trisha Ellis - Published on Amazon.com

Hereeeees Wes,. Firstly, the Badlands Bad Boys didn't meet up to expectations. Wes's character as a bad boy, or one who has a temper was a down played, his character did't come across that way at all. I was looking forward Taylor taming the bad boy Wes , maybe more drama. Although I liked Wes storyline with him dressing up as a Indian spirit to scare off Taylor. Her character was on point for the story as it was done, left me hoping more was coming, Turtle as a shaman , was really awesome. As Turtle tried to convinced Wes to learn of his ancestors, was well written.

The romance twist and history of the shaman keeps you interested. There were very few run-on areas, ...(.with lots of writing with nothing really being said ). I like this book as a family oriented piece of writing with a little romance to keep it from being historical. Secretly though, I have never heard of a Ghost getting an erection....lol, but it was funny and a little romantic seeing it from Wes's point of view. Knowing he was only pretending to be a Spirit. over all, I am still following the lives as they unfold. You haven't lost me as a follower yet.
