    4.5 out of 5. A complicated, engaging story that is a continuation of the Shadow Wranglers series. As I had not read the first two books in the series I was somewhat lost when encountering ideas and happenings and characters that were carry-overs. That being said, it was a delightful read for anyone who likes paranormal romance and who is a Sarah McCarty fan. It might be characterized as a love-lost-love-found kind of story, but there is far more to it than that. Embracing the tensions that have existed between the vampire community and wolf-shifters, this story also deals with the deep wounds caused by unscrupulous scientists who have imprisoned a wolf-shifter in the attempt to use her as a breeder. Now rescued, Miri and her vampire mate have a lot of baggage to wade through as they seek to find their way back to one another while discovering the location of their lost baby daughter--a child daddy didn't even know existed. Add in the tensions between the two communities and you have a multi-layered story that keeps the curiosity of the reader never quite satisfied. As always, this author manages to make a really good story rise to the level of a great one with characters that are compelling and the knack of bringing fictional characters assume life-like quality. Just a truly terrific story!!

    Después de dos años (y mucho más) terminé este libro (más o menos). No estoy muy segura de lo que pasó (pff) pero va, va. Ya estoy lista para terminar la serie con Slade.

    Well, this one started out on a good foot - the H is at a raid, rescuing his mate, and the were with him is supposed to be around a cave miles away, assisting his brothers with one of them's mate. Ummm… did we forget who was with whom, where?And then I read the book. I still don't know what it means to be a were. That's ok, because I don't think they do either.Supposedly only mated pairs can reproduce but… a male won't accept another male's offspring with his mate (like if she gets kidnapped or whatever). (right)Mating isn't a choice('kay)There are different degrees of mating(and you're going where with this?)A mating for reproduction, with parties looking elsewhere for affection(And elsewhere is ok with the female carrying her mate's kid?)Full-on mating where she bites him(ooooKay.)Alpha status is granted by virtue of being mated to an alpha woman(but…the head alpha isn't mated…)If the pack doesn't like the mate, they'll take him out and any female child from the union(Errr…)Then they'll look to replace him with one of their own choosing(But you said…)The female makes the choice(Aren't you contra…heck, who cares anymore. I'll just read the book for the romance, thankyouverymuch)And that…inability to keep the laws of their nature straight is why this book, which is otherwise pretty good, rates a mere 3. I don't do inconsistency.

    This outing picks up as Jared ended. Vampire shifter Jace Johnson and his friend wolf shifter Derek are inside the Sanctuary enclave searching for Jace's secret and forbidden mate, wolf shifter Miri while his family and more friends hold off the sanctuary forces. When they find Miri, she's in a battle for her life Miri sets her sights on the obstacle between them and lets Jace know they have a child to save. After Sanctuary's team is beaten back, the trio make to escape and Derek's mating instinct kicked in hard for a trapped human on their route. As if being parted a year wasn't issue enough, Jared and Miri's new reality is they're no longer a new secretly mated vampire/were pair with only hope ahead of them. Their 5 month old daughter, Faith's hidden and theoretically defenseless in the human community. On the way to safety, Jace flexed all his hero muscles to help traumatized, broken and disparate, Miri be strong enough to take their next steps. As family and friends help the parents search it becomes apparent they may be racing the Sanctuary vampires to reach Faith. This installment is the best to date in this reader's opinion with excitement, romance drama and adventure in the read. Rating: 4.25stars

    Well, this one wasn't as good I as I was hoping it was going to be but was still good. Miri got on my nerves for a bit but she got better. She did go through a rough time of things. I'm actually quite surprised that the fact that she was raped again and again by different vampire's wasn't addressed more. I suppose we were supposed to understand that she was a strong woman. Anyway, I wanted more focus on that. Also, when they did finally find their daughter it was the very end and there just wasn't as much emotion as I thought there would be.I like Sarah McCarty but I wouldn't say I am a die hard fan.

    I'm afraid I'm going to piss some readers off with this review. I did not like this book, the fact that Miri was rescued where she had been raped and tortured and gods only know what else left a sour taste in my mouth. Jace was the only saving grace for the book, he was a wonderful hero with so muc love in him it broke my heart. He gave up everything for Miri and in the end I just don't think she fully comprehended it, she was a distant and broken herione.

    Finally we get to see Jace's reunion with Miri. The author does a very good job of showing, rather than telling, the reaons for their behavior in the past and during this story. Loved to see the resolution but thought it a bit easy, after all the build-up. It was good to get glimpses of Caleb and Jared, too. Love this series, the combination of cowboy and vampire does it for me!

    This book started right were book #2 ended with Jace and the Were's of the Dnally pack break into Sanctuary to rescue Jaces mate Werewolf Alpha female, Miri. She has been held prisoner for a year and has given birth to her and Jace's daughter. All the plans and they don't turn out the way they were meant to. This book was exciting and can't wait to read #4 Slade. If you like Vampire and Werewolf books you will love this one. They should read in order. They stand alone kinda. Enjoy!

    Jace by Sarah McCartyParanormal Western –May 3rd, 20114 ½ starsJace is the third in the vampire series called the Shadow Wranglers about brothers who are vampires.Jace is a powerful vampire who longs for his pregnant mate, Mori. She left him and disappeared. Since then he has been searching for her. Now Jace has finally found Mori and is determined to never let her leave him again! But Mori has changed from the carefree werewolf that he knew. When she was kidnapped, she was ‘experimented’ on by vampire in a place known as Sanctuary. These unspeakable horrors haunt her. Mori does not trust Jace and feels that he abandoned her but he may be the only person who can find their lost daughter. Can Mori heal enough that they can ever have a meaningful relationship again? Will they ever recover their daughter or is she dead?No one write sexy westerns like Sarah McCarty! This is an emotional and steamy romance. Jace is an enthralling character. I loved how he was prepared to do anything to protect his mate. Although he is an alpha male and ready to jump into any battle, with Mori he gives her time and space to find herself again. He is truly a gentle giant. Mori is courageous, she suffered terribly at Sanctuary and I really wanted her to find happiness. As they search for their daughter the story becomes more dramatic and tense. I enjoyed reading about the all the characters in the series and was especially intrigued with the alpha werewolf Derek who helps rescue Mori. He finds a trapped, dying woman and realizes she is his mate. The only way to save her is to convert her into a vampire but a having vampire as a mate is taboo for an alpha. Will he choose his mate or his pack? I hope the author will write a book about Derek. I also would love to read more about the mysterious Enforcer Tobias. Enthralling, moving and sensual if you don’t love westerns Sarah McCatry’s books will convert you. Especially if you love well-written paranormal romances with appealing alpha heroes!Reviewed by Steph from the Bookaholics Romance Book Club

    This is a book about love and heartbreak, about losing oneself and finding oneself again because of the love of one’s mate. It is also an exciting story about what happens if an Alpha female werewolf mates with a vampire and they return to her pack, which has been almost destroyed by the greed of it’s leader who did not care for his pack properly. That leader is now dead so Jace is appointed Alpha of the pack, despite the fact he is a vampire, not a werewolf. There is controversy and tension about this throughout the book.Jace is my favorite of the three Shadow Wrangler series. I really loved this book and recommend it. I can’t say that it can be read as a stand-alone because to understand the motivations of all of the various werewolf packs, vampire clans and the Johnson family you really need to have read the first two books. I can say it is totally worth it to invest time in reading all three novels, especially since the last brother’s book, Slade, is due out December 6 (and is now available for pre-order).

    Third in the Shadow Wranglers series. Jace is one of the Johnson brothers, vampires who are slowly making their their presence known, and who have set themselves apart from the evil vampire scientists at Sanctuary. Jace has mated with Miri but is unaware of all of the rules of pack behavior and does not realize her position within her werewolf pack of Tragallions. Her unwise decision to flee after he leaves her results in her being tortured and their daughter being removed from her care. Jace must prove to Miri that he is worthy of her love even as he seeks to protect her, retrieve their child and deal with the problem of succession in her pack. A great addition to the series although I am still confused about the timing and mission that caused Jace to leave for a year. There are mentions of the civil war but then Miri and Jace are in a house that has an alarm with a keypad, freezer and a ice dispenser? Impressive look at the dynamics of packs as well as the interactions between weres and vampires.

    It has been a long time since I last read from this series. Thank goodness the story is written so well, it's as if I just finished the last one yesterday. All the characters are essentially reintroduced, but not in a redundant way...simply as part of the story. Jace and Miri are great. Jace the tough and stubborn vampire and Miri the were-vampire. After a long and horrific kidnapping by the Sanctuary, Jace was finally able to rescue Miri. While that was a great reunion there was another that needed help...their daughter Faith. Miri is suffering from her torture in Sanctuary, her concern that she was mated to a Vampire, their daughter was missing and there was an Enforcer, Tobias,in their mist. She didn't know who she could trust or love. In the end they find a home and a place to raise their family. Fun story...can't wait to read about Slade!

    After being kidnapped for over a year Jace gets Miri back. The woman he finds is not the woman he knew, but still one he wants. Jace treads carefully around the new fragile Miri, but still doesn't put up with any crap from her. Miri bucks things with Jace, but slowly sees that she can trust Jace again after seeing him keep one promise after another to her and his family. Jace's frustrations with Miri seem to roll off his back. Her answer for issues that come that he is not a were drive him crazy, as Miri thinks that explaination should explain it all. Watching Jace win over Miri, along with all the other were's was fun. They all thought a vampire could not possibly be up to the task before him. Being that Jace was a vampire he didn't do things the way were's did and this is just what seemed to help him win the were's over.I can't wait for the next brother's story!

But they do help a baby that is near death and Jace wants Miriam to help the baby survive, she was born deformed and left to die, Miri will have mixed emotions with little Peanut. And would have thought a vampire would be Alpha male to a pack of were's, and catch up with Calab his wife Allie, their son, and Jarad and his mate Rasia.

    Not sure why I'm continuing to read this series. I just looked back and I haven't rated any of them higher than a 3. The story lines are long and drawn out. The passion is luke warm. The plots seem to be repeats over and over. So basically what I think I'm saying is that this is a good series to read when you are caught up on all the really good ones and need something new. But I would never choose this over a Lora Leigh, Jaci Burton, Stephanie Laurens, or Larissa Ione. These books are just too tame for my liking. But I notice everyone else has given them 4 and 5 stars so maybe its just me.

    I didn't like this as much as the other two in this series. Jace I loved, but Miri just got on my nerve after a bit. Yes, a lot of horrible stuff happened to her, but at some point, she being an Alpha female, you have to suck it up. Then for this being an erotic story, there wasn't much erotica until mostly the end. And there were 'other things' that were involved that I felt made it feel awkward to me.However, this is not stopping me from anticipating the next book in the series, Slade.

    I started reading this book and it was like being dropped into the middle of a story already started. I realize this is a series but this is definitely not a stand-alone story. Jace rescues Miri from the Sanctuary after searching for her for a year and then they must find their daughter. There is so much small talk throughout the book that when they do find their daughter in about the last ten pages, it is almost an afterthought. I like werewolves and vamps but I am crossing this series of my list.

    The latest Shadow Wranglers Texas fantasy is an intriguing tale due to Miri's doubts and hesitations towards her soulmate who had treated her with love and respect before she was abused. That element brings a psychological reality to a complex story line containing several subplots and a seemingly horde of paranormal Texans. Series fans will enjoy the reunion of Jace and Mira; as the tough vampire must go slow and be tender and nurturing with his beloved emotionally fraught, fragile and forlorn werewolf spouse.

    Vampire Cowboys! What's not to love? Unfortunately, Miri was so annoying that I just could not love this book. Jace did something off book and she couldn't decide if she should forgive him or not. She would be angry, then not angry, then back to being angry again. It was so frustrating. I kept wishing she would just yell at Jace and they could put it behind them. But that's not what happened.

    If you've never read the previous novels in this series, the first fifty to one hundred pages are going to be confusing; they were for me. The story wasn't that great, more complicated than anything. I don't think I'll read anymore of her books, but Jace did keep me enthralled from beginning to end. If that's all you're looking for in a book then its great. Story was not up to par with other paranormal romances I have read.

    A continuation of the Shadow Wrangler books. The story of Jace and Miri. Jace is a vampire while Miri is a werewolf. They get together and Miri gets pregnant. Then Miri is captured by the Sanctuary that wants to do experiments and torture on her. Her baby is taken away and Miri remains in captivity for a year. Then Jace finds her but she is not the same. The rest of the story is the two of them trying to rebuild trust and finding their baby.

    I liked this book, but I had serious trouble getting into it with the way the beginning just dumps into the middle of a situation. I love McCarty's Promises series, but her habit of starting a book in the middle of a situation makes them feel a bit incomplete. That minor problem aside, I was not disappointed with 'Jace'. The story kept me reading beyond the rough start and just got better and better!

    I agree with another reveiw that this book is hard to follow if you haven't read the others defiantly not a stand alone . I'm giving up bec I'm bored. Maybe I need to try the first book. Then we will see. I got Slade from the library bec of the hot cover and grabbed Jace too but they were the only ones of the series on the shelf and thought I'd try and tea them in order. Now I'm just taking them back. And I never do that. Sigh.

    I actually enjoyed this one. This is old school McCarty, heavy on the emotion and occasional smexy. And the world is actually interesting and reasonably drawn out. (Which as much as I loved the old EC books, this is a new thing for SM)Though it is definitely heavily borrowed from her Others series which was started in EC back in the day. Tho it not a re-write, there is just recognisable elements and/or character traits.
