Review: Disobedience (Harker’s Hell # 1) by Alvania Scarborough

Harker’s Hell. Early settlers thought they’d found a western re-creationist’s heaven. Instead this new world became a hellish version of the Old West.

And now the seeds of long-ago conflict are stirring to life… 


Dissonance Walker is in a world of trouble. Sold by her parents for the price of a cookstove, she is used as a lab rat by a secret organization. Even though her ability to disobey was ripped away by a brutal experiment, she isn’t ready to give up. When she escapes her captors, Dissonance believes the worst is over. She’s dead wrong. She’s captured again… and this time, sold as a pleasure slave.

The key to reversing the experiment lies hidden in the stretch of arid waste called the Badlands. Only the too-sexy bounty hunter who bought her stands in her way. 


Bram Spencer is sure the heat has baked his brains. With his friend murdered and his ranch under attack, he has a little unfinished business he needs to attend. Buying some fool woman because she pokes at scabs he thought long healed hadn’t been part of the plan. Then he discovers the only way to set her free is to marry her.

Secrets have a long life. Sometimes decades. Now the past is about to slam into the present. Only trust in each other can save them from a shocking evil… but trust is a hard commodity to come by on the frontier.

Bram and Dissonance must trust each other if they want to survive a shocking evil, but trust is hard to come by on the frontier in this thrilling fantasy romance. Dissonance Walker was betrayed, forced into obedience and then sold as a pleasures slave. Bram Spencer has unfinished business he needs to take care of what he doesn’t need is to be rescuing woman by buying her, but that’s exactly what he’s done.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of action, suspense, drama and romance. The story comes to life with the well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated drama and suspense draw the reader deeper into the story ensuring that they can’t put it down until they have turned the very last page.  The characters are strong, compelling, easily related to and invite the reader to join them in Harker’s Hell.

The attraction between Dis and Bram explodes from the pages and the sex scenes burn up the pages with vibrant red hot passion.  The relationship however is hampered by secrets and evil that threatens every time they turn around.  The reader can’t help but get caught up in their story and how these two got to where they are and Dis captures the heart ensuring the reader cheers for the strong young woman with the spunky attitude throughout the story and Bram well he makes the heart pound with excitement.

The author has created an old west setting seamlessly blended with futuristic elements that is fascinating and has some intriguing and refreshingly different elements that grab the reader’s attention and doesn’t let go. I was completely caught up in this entertaining tale from the very beginning and I must say that I fell in love with the intriguing and charming characters, so I can’t wait to read the next story in this unusual and engaging new world.
