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

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.

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.

Meet Wes Brand, half Comanche, trying to get in touch with his spiritual nature with the help of Turtle, an old shaman medicine man of the tribe. Enter one lovely archeologist, who is also Comanche but was not raised in the Comanche culture, who also happens to be digging on site of an ancient burial place, looking for proof that it exits there. Legends say that Wolf Shadow, a powerful shaman from the past buried his lost love Little Sparrow before they could marry on this land. Their spirits are forever cursed to this world until the ancestress of both find each other and fall in love to release Wolfe Shadow and Little Sparrow spirits to move on to the Great Spirit in the sky. Want to know more?? READ the book!! I loved it myself and author Maggie Shayne captures your imagination right fri

I'm hooked on this series and will now be ordering book 4. After many years of reading one knows that two people will end up together but the best part of reading is how it all comes about. This story of a loving family holds your interest, easy ready, very few cuss words which is nice but in this story the sex scene didn't leave anything to ones imagination which I wish they had so I just skipped a few paragraphs and continued on with the story. Enjoy! GAB
