I’ve spent ten years as the ink man for the Black Dog MC. When a member needs ink, he comes to me — and I always obey. Because even when you’re not a brother, disobeying the Black Dog is deadly. So they own me.
And they also own her.
Dani. Beautiful, sweetly sensual, temptation incarnate. The president’s woman — completely off-limits. But when she comes to me to get inked, and begs me to get her out of the Black Dog before he kills her, my blood starts to burn for the first time in a decade. And when I realize my own reason for getting out — an inheritance from nowhere that will make me obscenely rich — I have to decide.
Stay, and we’ll both be sacrificed.
Run, and we’ll both have a price on our heads.
Take Dani, like she begs me to, and I might not live to see the morning.
Some things, I hear, are worth dying for.
Tonight is the night I find out.
It isn’t so easy. I dress more like a biker than a lawyer, and I have friends in low places. As for women, ten years ago the divorce from hell left me scarred - I live alone, I sleep alone. Trust me, it’s for the good of womankind.
Then Charlotte showed up on my doorstep. Willing to work as my assistant to pay off her brother’s legal bill. Beautiful and determined, even against the men trying to hurt her. She tells me I drive her crazy. She drives me crazy right back.
I hired her.
I watched her turn my life upside down.
I saved her.
I knocked her up.
And then I fell for her.
They say a a bad boy can’t be a good man. But they’ve never met me. And they don’t know how determined I can be.
Bryce Simpson did the only thing he could. He spurned Marjorie Steel. Even though he’ll be living on her ranch, he is determined to stay away from her. She’s worthy of more than he can even think about giving, especially now that long-buried memories are surfacing and he’s learning that his father’s sins may go even deeper than he imagined.
Bryce’s rejection destroys Marjorie, and she descends to a dark place she thought she’d abandoned forever. She emerges stronger, though, and is determined not to let heartbreak rule her life. Change is the answer, she’s sure, so she makes plans—plans that include a handsome personal trainer she meets at the gym.
When Bryce and Marjorie are thrown together, though, their ravenous hunger for each other takes over, leaving both of them more vulnerable than they realize.
