Blaze of Glory is set in 2807. The Earth is not how we know it today. Catastrophic events have left the planet a very different place. It is now a place where people ride steel steeds, pack law trumps human laws, Special Marshalls hunt paranormal beings and women are always owned by either their father or their spouse.

Molly ran from the town she grew up in. She ran from a man who harmed her. In running she also ran from the one man she ever loved. It has been years since she ran and she is no longer that scared girl. She is now a hellcat of a Special Marshall. She wears a badge, totes a gun and doesn’t let anyone harm her. She has grown in to one tough woman. She’s a tough woman who won’t let a man make her decisions for her.

Jonathan gets the best news and the worst news of his life all in one sentence. Molly has returned home to marry. The problem is her father has not married her off to him. Molly’s father has married her off to the man who harmed her and thus ran her off. Jonathan only sees one solution, go get his woman. He’s not going to let either of her two fiancées stand in his way.

This novella is full of action, a futuristic twist on the old west complete with cowboys and shifters. Roth has introduced her readers to an entire family of hot shifter men to keep the series going and a Special Marshall sidekick in the form of Cole to keep you salivating for the next book. I enjoyed the futuristic twist on the old west. I have every intention of continuing reading this series.

My only dislike is the complete personality change that Molly did. She starts out fighting tough, foul mouthed, ass kicking law enforcement official who makes her own rules consequences be damned. When the readers are given the final climatic fight scene where the man her father betrothed her to comes to collect her, she just hangs back on the front porch in a dress and lets Jonathan and Cole handle the majority of the situation.
