Cover & Excerpt Reveal
Club Ties Book Two
The only thing keeping Ex-Marine Drake from drinking himself into an early grave is his love of leather, horsepower, and his motorcycle club. Battling to adapt to a world where he isn’t blowing everything up, he roams the highways to keep his mind off his past. But after a mission to kidnap the curvy, tattooed goddess, Delta, he finds avoiding the bottle a little easier. Especially since he can only dream of finding solace against her silky body.
Delta would do anything to escape a life where pain and fear control her. She’s lived as a slave and outsider since she could walk. When a scary biker clan storms into her life and introduces her to her long-lost sister, she’s shocked to find warmth and comfort. While Delta knows better than to hope for a life she can’t have, Drake refuses to let her slip back into the hell she knows.
Plunged into a world of gambling, guns, and drugs isn’t her idea of paradise, but hunky Drake makes her pulse pound. Is it too much to believe that Drake can save her from her torment? And what can she do about extinguishing that burning, haunted look in his eyes?

Excerpt & More
As he reached the roof, he tried to pick out shapes in the darkness. No man shapes, only a few vents and an air conditioning unit. He waited, and since he had time, replayed his actions, searching for inadequacies that might have gotten him killed.
Nothing came to mind, so he rested his elbows on his knees and let his head drop back to look at the sky.
Clouds boiled, purplish black bruises obscuring the stars and moonlight. When the quiet snick of a closing door reached him, all the hair on his forearms stood up. And his heartbeat skipped into a faster rhythm.
Straining to hear, he battled his discomposure, but with each step on the rung, he lost a bit more control. He pushed into a crouch, hand at his hip in preparation to pull his knife if it wasn’t Delta.
Her hair was so dark and shiny, it appeared wet.
He lunged forward and hauled her over the lip of the roof, locking a hand over her mouth before she could even grunt.
She tensed but didn’t fight.
“Shhh, it’s Drake. Don’t make a noise.”
She went wild, kicking and twisting until he released her. Scooting back, she threw out her hands, just as she had in the club to keep him at bay. It wouldn’t work this time.
He wrapped his gloved fingers around her wrist. She was bare-armed, her skin white between the flowers snaking up her arm.
“Come here.” His voice was rough gravel under a boot. He tugged, and she came against him, shuddering. He wrapped her tight against his chest and buried his nose in her hair as he’d wanted to since the moment he spotted her.
She crowded against him, sweet, fragrant woman with actions that made no sense to him. Goddammit, someone had flipped the turbo switch on his heart rate.
“You didn’t fight until you knew it was me. Why?”
She didn’t reply, only remained like stone in his hold. A goddess statue that needed brought to life. He was going to find out what was going on with her no matter what. Everything about Delta was off.
Using his knuckles under her chin, he raised her head to look at him. It was so dark, her features were a blur, but her eyes glittered. “Why?”
“I knew you wouldn’t hurt me.”
Hell. I knew it.
Heart in his throat, he threaded his hands under her hair, spreading the silky strands over his knuckles. “You have the most beautiful hair.”
She started. Then she leaned into his touch.
“I’m kissing you.”
She nodded a split second before he claimed her mouth.
Ripe lips crushed under his, he gathered her onto his lap and molded her to his body. She sighed, and he took immediate advantage as she parted her lips. He drove his tongue inside, learning her flavors, head spinning.
