Treading the Traitor's Path: Out Bad

MLK Publishing
Free sample

Fate is a fickle mistress. No matter a man's desires, she tends to give with one hand, and take with the other. Good or bad, it doesn't matter to her, as long as there’s balance.

Ralph Lewis, otherwise known as Po'Boy, made one decision that changed the trajectory of his entire life. On the losing end of a schoolyard fight, he'd been on his back in the dust, glaring up at the boy who'd flattened him. Had watched unbelieving as that same boy stretched out his hand, offering to help Ralph to his feet. Against every instinct, he had accepted.

In that instant, he went from friendless pariah to having a partner and ally. For the first time in his life, he was respected... and feared. Po'Boy spent the next decade defending his position at his best friend's side. Life was good. Fate has a way of taking back the reins, though.

A long-ago action places him directly in the crosshairs of their enemies, and circumstances force Po'Boy's hand. Members of motorcycle clubs, men like him who live an outlaw's life don’t treat kindly with traitors, and in their world, that is what Po'Boy has become.

With events threatening to pull him away from everything he holds dear, he's made to walk a careful line to keep those he loves safe. Bound by silence, for his brothers' sake, he'll suffer through the worst thing that can happen to a man who lives and breathes the brotherhood. Out Bad.

About the author

Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library, devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she says "I've always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and found I adored that, too. For reading...if nothing else is available, I've been known to read the back of the cereal box."

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
