I thought I could go back to normal.
Right now normal hurts.
I’ve seen things—done things—I’m not the same girl I was.
It changed me—he changed me.
The bar is locked up. The Horsemen clubhouse is no place for me, and I don’t belong anywhere that feels familiar.
I’m alone. I’m broken.
The only thing that feels right is my pain.
Our club is in ruins. It's left me at the helm.
Twists and turns took me down this path that lead to further destruction, and I know King had orchestrated it all.
Thing is, I’m no one’s pawn.
The club is all I have, and King won’t take us down. We'll play this out our way.
One way or another, he’ll pay for the damage to us, to them, to her…
The mafia has ruined my life…
Run. Hide. Repeat.
That has been my life for longer than I remember.
I know all it takes is one missed step…One person to recognize me.
When my car breaks down leaving me stranded in the middle of Louisiana, I thought that was the worst thing that could happen.
It was not.
It was him.
Ryker pulls no punches, he tells me how it is straight, and that frightens me.
He tempts me.
He makes me want to stop.
He makes me want more.
It can be my undoing.
When the mafia catches up, can I leave?
If I do, will I survive more heartache?
I swore I wouldn’t let it happen to me. I wouldn’t fall prey to his dangerous charisma, but standing at his race tent my resolve is waining.
It’ll take everything in me to win against his charm.
Did I think the rich racer that had everything could be so hollow? So broken inside? Ten minutes ago two women graced his bed and now he wants me. Everything he does is to fill the hole in his soul that he cannot repair. It’ll take more than a few sweet words to prove I’m worth more to him than a quick one night stand.
What happened when the champion Crashed…When the daredevil playboy didn’t win the girl.
Forgive me father for I have sinned. Oh, how I’ve sinned and sinned. Even my brother’s pious meddling can’t undo the damage I’ve done. As VP of the Broken Bows MC I’m content to be the devious, dark and dangerous twin. I love to cause mayhem. I enjoy destruction.
Truth though? I wish he was by my side. I’d do almost anything to pull him away from his flock and back to the darkness that I know resides within him. I will do it anything.
I see their evil, their malice. I see myself in them.
My brother and the MC want me to return to the club, though it’s not my home. It never was.
When an attack occurs on the club—my family—their request becomes my undoing.
They use her.
She is my desire.
Scarlet is True’s though I covet her.
I’ve fought their pull like the taught string of the bow.
Like me, a single shot will ruin everything.
Read the novella that bridges the continuation of King to Pawn.
Oubliette’s a job I intend to complete.
He wants something I won’t give. Even if it means my release. Even if it can help others.
I don’t want to be a part of this hell, though I can’t see a way out.
He’s arrogant, ruthless, harsh, and a complete prick. Busta is an asshole.
Though there’s something about him that feels redeemable. I need to find a chink in his armor.
I lie to everyone. I’m so good at it now, I don’t know where the truth starts.
As Enforcer of the MC my job is to protect the club at all costs.
The day they ask me to watch over Oubliette—the sexy bartender from the Four Horsemen—I knew this would be difficult. That she’d be hard to resist.
I thought it would be simple; I thought I could get the intel. That I could save her and contain the lie. I was wrong.
She ignites a fire within me that I cannot hope to control, and her strength in the face of defeat consumes me.
To save her, I may chance everything. My life, my future….my club.
Who will win this war of wills?
