Synopsis: Dante "Inferno" Jones is used to winning in the ring. But when the MMA fighter meets pretty Caitlyn Moore, he seems to be striking out left and right. The more Cait denies his advances, the more intrigued he becomes by the sharp-tongued beauty. She's a challenge he cannot resist. Comfortable with the average Joe, Cait doesn't get it when the ultra-masculine Dante walks into her life and expresses an interest in her. Sure, she's shed eighty pounds and her confidence is building, but there's nothing spectacular about her. Certainly not enough to hang onto a ripped babe-magnet like Dante, whose violent profession, catty groupies, and cruel competitors are already making her life a living hell. Dante's light-hearted pursuit quickly becomes a battle to win her heart as they find themselves thrown together again and again and it's affecting his training. Cait won't let him lose the biggest fight of his career because of her, but when her plan to keep him focused lands her in the dangerous clutches of Dante's vicious opponent, there is more at stake than just the championship belt.

Synopsis: Doctor Ella Watts wants her old life back. Desperately. But the past has returned for its rematch, and going back home—even telling anyone her real name—isn’t an option until she’s confident in her MMA abilities. Personal trainer Lance Black is the man to help her reach her goals. Not only is he toned, muscular, and gorgeous, he’s patient, a great teacher, and willing to treat her like a worthy opponent. Except his size makes her freeze whenever he gets too close. If Ella can’t learn how to overcome her fear of being attacked, she’ll never be able to move on with her life. Underground fighter Lance Black knows there’s more to the mysterious blonde ninja than a beautiful woman determined to improve her fighting skills. She can best anyone close to her size – man or woman – but insists on working out with him, even though he’s got a good 70 pounds and several inches on her. Despite her reticence, he’s determined to get her to open up so he can help her get over her mental block. And if that means he can get to know her outside the gym, all the better. As long as she never learns his secrets.

“And where did you meet someone like her? Isn’t she out of your league, man?” He looked at Austin, who was clearly enjoying trying to get a rise out of him. He never lost control, but if someone could make him go off the reservation, it was Ashlee Daniels. She awoke urges in him he didn’t even know he had, but when it came to her, there were a lot of things he didn’t understand.
“Shut up, Austin. She’s a friend of Trish’s, and we’ve attended some of the same charity functions over the years. She’s one of the top consultants in her field.” He didn’t give them the full story; if they knew he double-checked every guest list to see if she would attend, he would never hear the end of it.
“And how hot is this Ashlee Daniels?”
Sam’s whole body tensed at the idea of Austin making a move on her. The thought of another man touching her, or getting to know the woman behind the persona, made him sick to his stomach. He wanted to be that man. “She’s off-fucking-limits, Austin.”
If he were honest, he would tell them he was too scared to make a move on her. Austin was right; she was way out of his league.
Austin laughed and put his hands in the air. “That hot, huh? Well, shit, I’m all for it.”
“I’m serious, man. Off-limits.”
Austin nodded, his way of telling Sam to chill the fuck out. But Sam’s whole body was wired and ready to explode at the thought of Austin getting too friendly with Ashlee.

After five lonely years out west, Chad Butler spots a curvy beauty in the crowd at his hometown honky-tonk and knows he has to have her. He’s going to lasso this little filly straight into his bed – and into his life.
Rachel Sweeting enjoys the peace she’s found in the middle of miles of cornfields with her Aunt Jessie. Her new life keeps her safely tucked away from the pain and embarrassment of her past. But, when her truck breaks down in the middle of the night and a hunky cowboy rides to the rescue, she’s knocked straight out of her boots.
Her romance books have told her love-at-first-sight is real and for the first time, Rachel is a believer. But when a dangerous past connection threatens their ride into the sunset, will Chad’s devotion to his woman be enough to save the day?
Author's Note: This cowboy hasn’t touched a woman in years, and when he falls, it’s hard and fast, making for an instant love connection and obsessed alpha hotness. If you’re looking for love-at-first-sight, NO cheating and filthy sweetness, come sit a spell but bring a fan, it’s hot.
“Lean back. I just want to see something. I won’t hurt you. You know that, don’t you?”
“I don’t know anything about you,” she stutters but she leans back, her hands moving to support her body as she settles against the cotton feed sack behind her.
“Yes you do. You know a lot about me.” I flip the final few inches of her skirt up to her waist, my eyes dropping from her parted, pink lips to see the matching hush of cotton panties covering what’s now mine. “You watched me tonight as much as I watched you. You can learn a lot about someone from watching.”
“I wasn’t watching you.” She does her best to sound indignant and I stifle my chuckle.
“See, like right now.” I drag my fingertips over the slip of fabric between her legs, feeling the warmth and the wetness that’s seeped through. “You’re watching me.” I give her a little grin. Even under my thick beard, I know she sees me.
Fuck, her panties are soaked through and I rasp my fingers over where her clit is hiding under there, listening to the way her breathing hitches and catches with each slight movement of my hand.
I keep my fingers moving, my eyes on hers as I groan the words that fill my throat. “That feels good. So good.” Even my crazy ass knuckles are happy right now just because they get to touch her. That’s how good she feels. My eyes move from her face to watch my hand and the sight makes another few drops of cum drip out of my dick.
“I shouldn’t do this.” Her words don’t match the needy shiver in her voice.
“You’re not doing this, I’m doing this. You’re thanking me. And I told you what I want.”
“What?” Her voice shakes as my fingers trace around the elastic between her pussy and the sensitive crease of her inner thigh making her twitch under my touch.
I push the offending fabric away, slipping the backs of my fingers inside. When my touch meets the first soft brush of her hairless lips I think I might lose my shit right there.
“I said, I want to know how you taste. And that, my sweet Dove, is going to require you spreading your legs and my tongue licking right here.” I dip a fingertip into her folds. She’s hot and dripping as I caress just inside her juicy cunt.
“These have to go,” I mutter, my other hand pulling her panties down a bit more, then reaching into my pocket and flipping open my knife. In one swift motion, before she even knows what’s happening, I slice the blade through the soft fabric and it falls free, still caught under her luscious ass but her slick bare pussy is on full display and I’m captivated.
I snap the blade closed and slip it back into my pocket as her wide eyes look down to see her naked flesh exposed to me.
She shudders, her head falling back and her hair cascades off her shoulders and down her back as she loses the last few inches of her upright position and melts against the feed sacks.
When I do put my cock inside her where it belongs, she will own my ass forever, but I’m pretty sure she already does. “You’re going to cum on my fingers, Dove, so I can taste you on them for the rest of the night. Then, it’s going to be my tongue. You want that, don’t you? You want my tongue inside this pretty cunt.”
I massage her hard little button and she collapses the rest of the way, boneless onto the sacks of feed. Her hands fly to her face, her palms pressing to cover her eyes as her mouth opens. She likes my filthy talk, and that’s good, because I’m going to tell her exactly how much I want her and all the things I intend to do to her. I may be a soft spoken country boy, but she’s released every filthy, depraved thought I’ve stored up and in my mind and it’s poetry.
I explore, shifting my thumb to rub in easy, smooth circles around her clit, reaching two long fingers low to scoop out the nectar that is already streaming from her. “Jesus, you’re so wet. It’s so fucking beautiful.” A little more pressure from my calloused thumb and I slip a finger into her heat. She’s tight as fuck, and my mind can’t stop playing over and over how she will feel the first time I sink my dick into her.
My hard-on is painful, but I know I would lose all control if I let him out, and my little dove isn’t going to have her first time with me in the back of a pickup truck on the side of the road. No, she deserves so much more, and I’m the man who is going to give it to her, just not tonight.
She presses herself upward into my fingers and lets out a whimper, throwing her hands off her eyes and above her head. Her body is tight, like a bow string ready to release.
“Spread your legs, Dove. Wider.” I push my finger into her until she gasps. “Let me see how pretty that pussy is in the moonlight.” Her breath halts, then she does as I say and that bow string pulls back tighter and tighter. When she finally opens her legs to me, I give her what she needs.

Series: Vipers Creed MC #1
Author: Ryan Michele
Genre: MC Romance
I get what’s mine.
As the gun lay heavily in his hand, the weight of it was nothing compared to the pressure his father had put on him and the club year after year, dragging them all down in the process.
Cade had two choices: the club or his father.
The club won.
Cade Baker sacrificed everything for the Vipers Creed Motorcycle Club, bringing the club back to what it was supposed to be—a family—even when it meant taking out his own father.
It took a particular kind of man to kill his blood, but Cade had always believed in doing what was right for the club. To him, it was a small sacrifice to make things normal for him and his brothers. Then, when Trixie strode into his club, full of demanding attitude, his normal was shot straight to hell.
He vowed to have Trixie.
No matter the cost.
Nobody steals from me
Trix Lamasters was nobody’s fool. Raised by a con man, she lived by her own set of rules. Mainly, take care of herself first because no one else was going to do it.
When an employee stole from her, she could have let it go. She could have let the thief fade into the background and chalk up the missing cash as a loss. She was Trix, after all—she always landed on her feet. But that wasn’t her style. She was too stubborn, too damn proud. No one stole from her and lived to tell about it.
With pride, though, came consequences, and Cade Baker was hers.
Trix gave something to Cade when she was a girl, something sacred. And she could never get it back. She had loved and trusted him, and he had left her.
Now he was making her crazy … because he wanted her.
And hell, she wanted him, too.
But how is she supposed to trust the man who broke every single one of her rules, not to mention, her heart?
"This MC book has sex (hot all-consuming sex), lies, deceit & a history amongst the characters Cade aka Spook and Trix that leaves you holding on to the handle bars while enjoying the ride of your life as you read Challenged!" ~DMHoltry of Wicked Tales of Racy Reads
"At heart this gritty biker romance is about love and trust and how hard it is to earn your way back. It had me captivated from beginning to end." ~Debra Taylor Reads Too Much
"This book is dark, gritty, suspenseful and also includes a sexy alpha male biker with a cocky attitude and a smart mouth independent woman who isn’t afraid to back down. Spook and Trix stole my heart." ~Nikki from Saint and Sinners Books
Challenged by Ryan Michele
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Great book!! I think this is my first second chance MC book and it was wonderful.
Cade and Trixie were high school sweethearts, after she gave him get virginity he bailed on her. With a broken heart Trix swore she would never give her heart away again.
Fifteen years later Trix and Cade come together. He is determined to right the wrong he did years ago and she is determined not to let him back in.
This book has it all! Sex,lies and betrayal. I am in love with the characters, the story was great and the writing was wonderful. Can't wait for the next book.

Blake âMurphyâ O'Callaghan, Road Captain of the Lost Kings MC, has the world by the balls. Everything he wantsâ¦except the one girl whoâs off limits. The only girl heâs ever loved. His best friendâs little sister, Heidi.
Now that sheâs eighteen, itâs time to claim her as his. Problem is, sheâs in love with her high-school boyfriend, Axel, a prospect for the Lost Kings MC.
Can Murphy convince Heidi that all the hard roads theyâve traveled lead to their happy ending, or is he destined to ride the open road alone?
For reasons I donât want to think about, Iâm anxious while I wait downstairs. Sparkyâs hanging out in the living room, so I end up talking to him while I wait.
Itâs my brother who finally comes downstairs. Not Blake.
Marcel ushers me out the door without speaking. Outside, in the parking lot, I shake out of his hold. âWait a second. Whereâs Blake?â
âUpstairs. Heâs tired.â
He pushes me into his truck and shuts the door.
Tired of being manhandled, I hop right back out. âWhat do you mean heâs tired? We were going toââ
âGet back in the truck.â
âHeidi,â he warns. âLeave him alone and get in the truck.â
I donât answer, but I hoist myself back inside his big, jacked-up ride.
âWhat are you compensating for with this monster truck?â I ask when he slams his door.
âYou didnât hit Blake, did you?â
âNo. Should I have?â
âNo! Why are you being such aââ
âCareful, little sister.â
I hate this. I hate when he pushes me into acting like a brat. Iâve been trying so hard lately, but sometimes he pushes all my bratty-little-sister buttons.
âHe said you fell at the park. You okay?â
Unsure of just how much Blake told my brother, I say as little as possible. âIâm fine.â
âWhy were you up in his room?â
âJeez. I already told you. I helped him bandage up his arms.â
âAre you hurt?â
My shoulder still burns from the Tiger Balm, and I replay the few brief seconds with my shirt off while Blake tended to me, our kiss, our second kiss after he tenderly wiped my face clean. Iâm not sharing any of those moments with my brother, though.
âHeidi, you know youâre the most important person in the world to me, right? Everything Iâve done. Everything I do. Itâs to make sure you end up okay. You know that, right?â
His words drive splinters of guilt through my chest. âYes.â
He sighs and reaches over to squeeze my hand. âHow much do you remember about living with mom?â
âI donât know. Not much. I remember hanging out at the club with you guys more.â
âShe left us alone a lot.â
âI know.â Iâm tempted to tell him to get to the point, but Iâm also curious about where heâs going with this.
âYou remember any of the guys she used to bring home?â
If I think really hard, I do. Sort of. âI remember you sleeping in my room when she had guys over. You used to sleep in front of the door.â
Iâm watching him closely, so I notice the way his mouth twists down right away. âYeah.â His hands squeeze the steering wheel. âYou were so little. And trusting. And sweet.â
âAre you trying to say Iâm a big, suspicious, bitter teenager now?â
He huffs out a laugh and glances over at me. âAnd so fucking smart.â
âSmart ass you mean.â
âNot that I donât enjoy strolling down crappy childhood memory lane, but do you have a point?â
âWhat did we always say when we were younger? Whatever Mom didââ
âWeâd do the opposite when we were adults.â
âYou still happy with Axel?â
Confused and suspicious of the change in conversation, I take a second to answer. âYes, why?â A shiver of excitement races over me. âWhy? You think the clubâs going to vote him in soon?â
âHeidi, you know I canât talk to you about that stuff.â
âYeah, yeah,â I grumble and cross my arms over my chest.
He chuckles then turns serious again. âIf youâre with Axel, be with him. But stop messing with Blake.â
The familiar tingle of my blood boiling starts up. âWhatâs that supposed to mean?â
âExactly what I said. Heâs too old for you.â
âIâm not messing with him.â If anything, Blake keeps messing with my head. My heart. But I wonât rat him out to my brother and cause problems between them. I love both of them too much.
Heâs silent for the next few miles and his words replay in my head. âAre you trying to say Iâm like Mom?â
âNo. Fuck no. Youâre nothing like her. I just donât want you making her mistakes.â
âWhat would those be?â
âAxelâs my only boyfriend.â
âGood. I know you and Blake are friends, too. Just, be careful.â
âWhy? He wouldnât hurt me.â
âYouâre not a two-guy type of girl, Heidi.â
âHow do you know?â
He takes his eyes off the road for a second to glare at me. âI know you.â
âYouâre saying that because Iâm your sister.â
âHow would you feel if you knew Axel had girls on the side?â
An uneasy prickle slides through my stomach at the thought. Axel spends a lot of hours at the club. Marcel knows my boyfriend in a whole different way than I do. âYou havenât seen him. . .he doesnât mess around with other girls, does he?â
He chuckles because I fell for the bait. âHave I ever kicked his ass?â
I snort and shake my head.
âI wonât tolerate anyone disrespecting my sister. Club or not.â
A tight smile forms at the corners of my mouth, but I donât say anything right away.
âHave you ever considered those girls you mess with? Club girls. Maybe theyâre someoneâs little sister?â
âMaybe theyâve got big brothers warning them away from guys like you?â
His jaw tightens. âYouâre too smart for your own good.â

About DL GallieI’m from Queensland in Australia but I have lived all around the world. I’m currently living in Gladstone with my husband and two kids. I’ve been with my husband since I was 16, and even though we drive each other nuts at times, I couldn’t imagine my life without him. I got back into reading just after I had my son and with some encouragement from my husband I started to write, and now the voices won’t stop. I enjoy listening to music, drinking white wine in Summer, Red wine in Winter, beer all year round, I won’t say no to a cocktail either (specifically a margarita), reading and now writing.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm loving this series! It's exactly what great MC books should be. I fell in love with the first book and this one doesn't disappoint.
Darcy is heart broken after the death of her husband Jagger. Being left to raise two boys and pregnant with another child leaves her wanting revenge. She knows she's not getting the whole story, that she is being lied to. She is determined to find out what happened to her husband and make whoever is responsible pay.
Raze is the President of the Heavens Rejects and one of Jagger's closest friends. He hates lying to his wife Darcy about the circumstances of Jagger's death but knows telling her the truth won't change anything.
Raze has watched Darcy for years. Even though he was happy for his brother to find love in a beautiful woman he was still jealous of their life and family. When the club goes into lock down and Darcy is forced to move into the club house, he can't seem to stay away from her. And she doesn't want him to.
This is such a amazing series, the story lines are great, you fall in love with the characters and the writing is wonderful!
