Benny Jones loves making music, lives for it, even. Blessed with movie star good looks, he doesn't lack for female attention, but his track record in love isn't the greatest. He's riding high, living the rock and roll life, filled with belief that he's got everything he wants. Then it all crashes around him, leaving him navigating life as a suddenly sober artist, chasing the one woman who matters.

Full description:
Benny Jones grew up fast, much faster than anyone in his family realized, in the backwoods sticks of Wyoming. Blessed with movie star good looks he didn’t lack for female attention, and his first girlfriend set the tone for his romantic life. Older, beautiful, rich, and generous, she wanted to have a pretty toy to play with, and a prettier boy on her arm. His worth became defined by her needs, which left him feeling empty and hollow.

Ben found an escape from the sordidness of his world with music, and frequently lost himself in the sounds and rhythms he could create, trying to set aside the increasing feelings of worthlessness and betrayal. He knew eventually it would all catch up with him, and he was right. It did, the night he nearly died. Fortunately for Ben his older brother was there to save him. Again.

Now, he's attempting to navigate the world as a sober artist, digging in and holding onto his dreams by sheer determination alone when Lucia walks into his life. Sweet, beautiful, caring, and oh-so off limits Luce makes him think there are better things in store for him. There are problems, though. Not only doesn’t she fit the mold of his previous ladies, but her father is one of his brother’s best friends. No problem, right?

Mica, Vol 1
When Mica Scott moved into a quiet Chicago suburb, she wasn’t ready for what she found. Her new neighbor is bossy, kinda scary, and defines hotness. Sure, he’s a hunky alpha male, the kind most women secretly long for, but the man oozes danger. And Mica isn’t most women. After a chance encounter brings a new man to her door, Mica struggles to find a path between what she wants, and what she needs.

Slate, Vol 2
Andrew Jones sets off from Wyoming to find work, restlessly traveling from job to job, looking for something he cannot define. He meets Davis Mason, president of the Rebel Wayfarers MC in Chicago, and as Slate, he finds the brotherhood he’s longed for, the sense of connection and belonging. Then he finds his romantic match in a daughter of the club, working to gain her trust and affection. Ghosts from their previous lives threaten to ruin everything, and he struggles to save his woman and their love.

Bear, Vol 3
Rob Crew had purpose in his life. He was a devoted husband, doting father, and committed Navy man…then his life changed forever. Cast adrift, he finds friendships in the Rebel Wayfarers Motorcycle Club and fulfillment as he transitions into the role of loyal and supportive club member. He becomes Bear, a man who fills an important position in this brotherhood of bikers. A caregiver by nature, Eddie’s chosen career focuses on helping the most vulnerable – advocating for those with special needs. Surrounded by loving friends and well away from her controlling family, she is content with what she considers her full and satisfying life…until she meets Bear, an enforcer for the local MC. Can Eddie convince Bear that it is okay to move past his pain and love again? Will he give in to his desire for her in time?

Book 4
A new standalone romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Lynn Raye Harris. Sexy, action-packed, and thrilling!

Sold to the highest bidder…

For the past fourteen years, Princess Antonella Rossi has been a virtual prisoner. She has no friends, no fun, and she’s not allowed to leave her aunt and uncle’s Virginia compound without an escort.

But today is her wedding day. A rich sheikh has bought her virginity, and with it her freedom. Any hope of independence Ella’s ever cherished will disappear the instant she faces him across the altar. With time running out and the wedding party gathering, Ella seizes the opportunity to run as far and fast as she can.

Navy SEAL Cash “Money” McQuaid isn’t looking for trouble, but trouble always seems to find him. This time trouble is five foot four and wearing a wedding dress. Rescuing a runaway princess has consequences though, and with his face plastered on the evening news and his career on the line, he realizes there’s only one way out of this mess—he has to marry her!

It’s a marriage in name only, just until he can clear his name and win Ella the freedom she seeks. But shacking up with a gorgeous virgin isn’t as easy as it seems, especially when the sparks snapping between them are hotter and more dangerous than anything Cash has ever experienced. By the time he realizes it’s too late to resist his virgin bride, an unseen enemy is intent on taking her away from him.

Cash is gonna need all his skills—and his friends on the Hostile Operations Team—in order to rescue his princess bride and give her the happily-ever-after she deserves.

The Hostile Operations Team is a covert military Black Ops unit. Their motto is Where None Dare. H.O.T. operators come from all branches of the military. The only criteria for membership: they must be the best of the best!

BOOK 4: JASE - Meet Jase Spencer. Just your everyday kinda guy, a hard-partying, hard-living professional hockey player. Nothin’ special. Good-looking and ripped, the man has moves, on and off the ice. Then he met HER. Now, he’s about to turn his life upside down because of HER. Jase is on a mission to show her what they have together is worth fighting for, to convince her to take a chance on him. His attempts will bring him squarely into the path of a motorcycle club, earning him the attention of Mason, president of the Rebel Wayfarers MC. Jase says, “Bring it on.”

BOOK 5: GUNNY - Shattered following a devastating betrayal, Lane Robinson finds himself in Fort Wayne, Indiana, a world away from his previous life as a Marine. Robinson meets a member of the Rebel Wayfarers motorcycle club, and with an introduction into the biker’s circle of friends, finds that elusive sense of home that has been missing from his life for too long. Into this meticulously constructed life dances Sharon Elkins, the first person who sees beyond his surface façade, the first he’s let get close in so long…but can he trust the emotions she stirs in his soul?

BOOK 6: MASON - Davis Mason grew up dirt-floor poor in the rolling hills of rural Kentucky, escaping that life only to find himself adrift on the hard streets of Chicago in his teens. Introduced to what seemed a perfect brotherhood within a motorcycle club, Mason slowly works his way up the ranks to gain control of the club, and he’s resolved to make it better…stronger, able to withstand any challenge. Flirting with happiness time and again, just when Mason believes it’s finally within his grasp, he’s torn between what he wants…and what he knows he should do. He finally has the security and family he’s always wanted, but will Mason ever find the love and passion he craves?

Shattered following a devastating betrayal that results in the death of his friends, Lane Robinson finds himself in Fort Wayne, Indiana, a world away from his previous life as a Marine. Robinson is trying to forget the past, but healing from the deadly deceit that cut blood deep is hard, and memories of that treachery taint every interaction in his life. He misses the comradery and bond he had with his brothers in arms, and now can't help but view everyone around him with mistrust and suspicion.

Robinson meets a member of the Rebel Wayfarers motorcycle club, and with an introduction into the biker's circle of friends, he finds that elusive sense of home that has been missing from his life for too long. Initiated into the club and now called Gunny, Robinson buries himself in his new life as a Rebel member.

Secure within his newfound family, Gunny fills his days with solitary work and finds he possesses a gift for motorcycle restoration, forming a career out of this exacting passion. Trying to leave behind the man he was before the club, unfortunately his feelings of cynicism aren't so easy to set aside. Even within the club, surrounded by members he readily calls brother, he grants his trust to only a few. One of those is Davis Mason, national president, and a man he is proud to call friend.

Into this meticulously constructed life dances Sharon Elkins, the one woman who seems to possess the ability to tear down the walls he has spent so long building. She is the first person who sees beyond his surface facade, the first he's let get close in so long...can he trust the emotions she stirs in his soul?

As she becomes an ever more important part of his world, darkness from their former lives collides in a dangerous cascade of conspiracy and schemes. Can he protect the woman he has come to love, and will they be able to fight their way clear of the chaos that threatens to entrap them?

When Mica Scott moved into a quiet Chicago suburb, she wasn’t ready for what she found. Her new neighbor is bossy, kinda scary, and defines hotness. Sure, he’s a hunky alpha male, the kind most women secretly long for, but the man oozes danger. And Mica isn’t most women. After a chance encounter brings a new man to her door, Mica struggles to find a path between what she wants, and what she needs.

Mica was raised on a ranch in Northeast Texas. Life was hard, but not impossible...until she met her own personal nightmare one night at a rodeo. She escaped his abuse by putting things behind her, isolating herself by moving to Chicago for college and work.

Davis Mason is the hard-living president of the Rebel Wayfarers, a motorcycle club operating out of Chicago. With just one encounter, he becomes determined to keep Mica safe...whether she wants him to or not. He will use every asset in his control to manage Mica, while holding himself aloof from taking the one thing he really wants...her.

Daniel Rupert is a successful businessman. He owns a trucking company and a hockey team, for which he is the star forward. Meeting Mica and Mason when he helped foil an attempt on her life, he began working jointly with Mason to keep her safe. But unlike Mason, Daniel is not satisfied with a platonic relationship. He insinuates himself into Mica's life, and he only wants...everything.

Events escalate and Mica's very life hangs in the balance as old threats resurface and the men in her life scramble to keep her alive.

Gunny and Sharon have been through a lot together, coming out stronger in the end. Fate throws them a bone, so to speak, in a mastiff by the name of Tank.

Adopting a dog means taking on all that animal’s troubles, large or small. When the dog in question stands nearly three-feet at the shoulder and weighs more than 150 pounds? All the problems are big!

Lane Robinson has always had a soft spot for dogs. All breeds and sizes; if it’s a furbaby, he’s a big pushover. Gunny loves his pups. Persuaded into helping a Rebel member sort out a difficult situation, Gunny didn’t expect to find a new family member in the form of an enormous mastiff. With a child on the way about to add more chaos to his life, he thought the big guy would be a temporary house guest. Take the monster-sized dog home, foster him for a little while, then place the critter with a loving family. Piece of cake.

But, when he came through for Sharon in an important way, helping her through a difficult time, Gunny decided the dog had found a forever home. Remember those big problems? They’re about to get even bigger! This novella sits alongside Rebel Wayfarers MC book #10, Bones.

Sexy as hell chef.
Rough and ready biker.
Controlling and determined … Dom?

This book is the pairing of a novella and short story set into the Rebel Wayfarers MC world featuring Kevin Hartley, Road Runner (of Road Runner's Ride), and Kris Clarke, Goose (of Never Settle). You're going to want to read all about their alpha beginnings!

What happens when we begin living out our dreams? Are you brave enough to push past society's barriers to see who you are? Kevin is, and he's willing to take us along on his path of discovery, promising to grant glimpses into secret worlds.

Road Runner's Ride is a novella in the Rebel Wayfarers MC book series, and the timeline matches book #10, Bones. Road Runner’s Ride was first released as an 18-installment serial sent out in my emailed newsletter. This version is greatly expanded, and I hope everyone enjoys seeing even more of Kevin and his Aurelie.

Also included is the short story, Never Settle. Goose’s story cried out to be told, and a one-sided short featuring Kris and Francine was originally published in one of the Biker Chicks anthology books. This version is expanded, too. Hope you enjoy this small vision into his part of the RWMC.
