✾ Synopsis ✾

A fallen hero reborn

Theo Taggart lost everything the night he died. His family, his beautiful Erin, and worst of all, he lost himself. A twisted doctor brought him back from the brink of death, but reprogrammed his identity to serve her will. Rescued by his brothers, he must fight to reclaim the man he was and the life, and love, that were stolen from him.

A love worth fighting for

Erin Argent thought she'd lost Theo forever. When he walked back into her life, it was nothing short of a miracle. Months of torture and conditioning at the hands of Dr. Hope McDonald have done damage to Theo that may never be mended. He has no memory of her or the life they shared. Breaking through to him, and helping him rediscover all he lost, will be the toughest mission she's ever faced. Luckily for Theo, Erin loves a good fight.

Their reunion under siege

Unfortunately, Hope is far from done with Theo Taggart. Obsessed with her prize experiment, she will do anything to get him back. If the only way to finally break him of his past life is to kill Erin and his son, then she's only too happy to oblige...

✿ Excerpt ✿

Theo took the stairs as quickly as he could. He knew where he was going, but he wasn't going to think about it. For the first time since he'd gotten home, he didn't care about his past or figuring out who he'd been. He wanted. He wanted something right now and that felt good.

She'd been right. There wasn't a place for guilt here.

He strode up the stairs, her weight comforting in his arms. Yeah, he wasn't going to think about that either. He was going to enjoy it, not wonder why his body remembered her when his mind would not.

"Hey, is everything okay?"

Damn it. Case was standing at the top of the stairs, obviously having come out of the privacy rooms. His wife was at his side, her face flushed. Mia had sex hair. Good for them. Red was about to have sex hair, too. Lots of filthy sex hair. "Everything's great. Night."

Case put a hand on his shoulder. "Whoa. I thought you were going to take this slow, brother."

"If you don't get your hand off him right this second, Taggart, I am going to ensure that you never have children," Red said, her eyes narrowing on his brother. "You won't be able to cock block anyone because you won't have a damn cock. Am I clear?"

Case's hands came up immediately as though he knew that tone and was not going there. "Trying to help."

"Three is clean and has plenty of condoms. We're taking a monitor turn up here. I checked all the rooms." Mia grinned at him. She actually was helpful. "Have fun and we'll see you at home."

He didn't bother to look back. Case could give him a lecture later. He wasn't waiting anymore. He'd waited forever. Even when he couldn't remember her face, he'd known she was there. He'd felt her, or rather he'd felt her absence.

Could he truly be with a woman whose name he couldn't think without hurting her?

It didn't matter. He wasn't making those decisions tonight. He was enjoying her. His sub. He was bringing her pleasure and he probably should do a good job of it because his sub was fucking mean.

And fragile. He'd seen the moment she'd thought he was rejecting her. He'd watch her skin flush and her body start to turn in on itself. She was such a mix of strength and need. It was intoxicating. He wanted so badly to be the man who gave her what she needed.

Affection. Pleasure. Comfort.

Love — he wasn't thinking that word tonight. Nope. Pleasure was way better.

He kicked out lightly at the partially open door number three. It looked like Mia had done her job. The room was perfectly clean, the lighting soft and romantic. The best thing about this room though was the complete lack of any of his friends or family being here.

It was him and her, and that was exactly what he wanted. No Ian. No Li. No Kai asking them hundreds of questions. Him and her and the night.

He tossed her on the bed and stood back, looking down at her. "Tell me why you thought I was rejecting you."

The instant she hit the bed, she was up on her knees. So graceful. So deadly. What the hell was this woman like out in the field? She moved like a predator, but the look on her face was pure sarcasm. "Uhm, your words. That's what sealed it for me. 'I don't want to do this' is generally considered a rejection."

Somehow she managed to put an unsaid "dumbass" on the end of her sentences. Not all of them. She’d been perfectly sweet most of the night, but she could turn it on when she wanted to. "I didn't mean that. When I said the words, I watched you change. Why? You're good at slapping people down. I wouldn't have said that until today."

"Because I've been careful around you," she admitted.

"Why? You think I'm delicate?"

Her lips curled up. "I don't think you're delicate. I think I'm a lot to take, but I also am starting to believe I was wrong. You like me rough."

"I like you a lot." More than he could ever tell her.

Bayonet Scars #7
J.C. Emery

Release Date: October 27, 2016

✾ Synopsis ✾

Death silences. Love echoes.

Ruby Buckley is no stranger to loss. She lost her twins in their infancy, lost her son to his demons, and lost herself to a life she never wanted.

Until him.

Jim Stone is lost. He's a father who doesn't know how to parent, a brother who doesn't know why he ever patched in, and is completely numb to everything around him.

Until her.

Craving normalcy, Ruby wants to live straight, but that's easier said than done when a member of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is determined to make her his old lady. She's plagued by a past she can't escape. He vows to give her a better future, even if means delivering the impossible.

But falling in love was only the beginning.

Twenty years later and they're still going strong, even if the world around them is crumbling. Jim's put his club on the line and given Ruby the impossible - her now adult twins she thought she'd lost forever. She has everything she's always wanted.

But at what cost?

Love is never more real than when it's forever.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Time after time, I never cease to be amazed at how deeply I can be hurt.

Just a flesh wound, Mama.

Jim's words echo in my mind over and over again. They're all I hear as I watch my husband — the man who taught me that men can be good — being lifted into the back of the van by his brothers. Blood pools at the bottom of his vest and drips to the pavement.

My daughter — the precious baby I thought I'd lost forever — is being carried to the van by the boy who became my son at the age of eight. She's lost so much blood. The dark red liquid completely covers her face, neck, and chest. My heart falls into my stomach as I catch sight of the blood smeared all over Ryan's cut and his face.

My husband's been gutted and my daughter's been sliced open.

Both bleeding.

One dying.

Maybe two.

Hopefully none.

And all I can think about is my own selfish need to keep them with me. If I'm not a mother to my daughter or a wife to my husband, then I don't know who I am. I'll still have my sons — all three of them — but it's not the same. My boys don't need me the way my man and my girl do. I won't get to hang on to Michael for much longer. He's a Mancuso and he'll be staying in New York to take over the family — and it doesn't matter how I feel about that. Ian, my eldest, has his wife Mindy. He thinks he still needs me, but he doesn't. Ryan, the boy I have to remind myself isn't really mine, has Alex. My daughter.

If we lose her, there's nothing anyone can do to make it better. Ryan will never recover and neither will I. He'll shut down, just like Rage did when we lost Sylvia, and even I won't be able to reach him then.

If we lose Jim, we lose our rock. I lose the only person I ever trusted enough to give my whole heart to besides my children.

I won't survive it.

Bayonet Scars #1

✾ Synopsis ✾

Ryan and Alex

Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.

Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can't take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.

Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He's sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he's also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he's forbidden to be her lover.

Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn't have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn't allowed on the back of his bike — or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she's done hearing the word "no" and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn't dare cross.

Love is never more tempting than when it's forbidden.

✾ Synopsis ✾

Duke and Nic

Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.

As a Lost Girl to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club, Nicole Whelan knows how to party. She's not cut-out for relationships and her life is way too complicated for anything more than casual encounters. But one night when she falls into Duke's bed at the clubhouse, he sees something in her that he can't let go of — no matter how many times she tries to run.

Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she's already got her hands full and isn't looking for anymore complications. But Duke's just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn't have, and then almost lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he's more determined than ever to break down Nic's walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he's got a bad track record and she's got a bad temper. Changing his ways isn't easy when he's not sure what he's even changing for.

The violence and turmoil are at an all-time high, and Forsaken is in a vulnerable place when a twist of fate breathes new life into the club. It's a much-needed beacon of hope for the embattled biker family, even if everyone's not exactly on board. With Duke and Nic's relationship already on shaky ground, and something even more important at stake, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club will fight like hell to keep their family together and whole.

Love is never more precious than when it's new.

✾ Synopsis ✾

Grady and Holly

With the looming threat from the Mancuso Crime Family, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is preparing for a war that could destroy them. Grady, the club's Sergeant-at-Arms, knows that love makes you weak, and he has zero interest in adding to his liabilities – especially now. He's already got his teenage daughter who keeps him on his toes and a beef within the club that could fracture his relationship with a fellow brother for good.

For Holly Mercer, her life is finally getting on track and the last thing she wants is trouble from her hometown's resident outlaws. Keeping her nose clean is easier said than done, when suddenly she finds herself embroiled in club business. Holly might like the idea of being with a real-life bad boy, but even being in the same room with tough-as-nails Grady flusters her.

When Holly inadvertently finds herself on Mancuso's radar, she has two choices: trust that Grady will protect her, or continue to refuse the club's help. Both roads are dangerous, but only one has the chance to damage her beyond repair.

Love is never more dangerous than when it can destroy you.

She's funny, and kind, and she just wants that deep, earth-shattering love like her dad has with her school secretary, Holly. But Cheyenne's been looking in the wrong direction, because the only good that can come from the way she looks at Jeremy Whelan is a lesson in heartbreak.

Jeremy always wanted to prospect for the Forsaken Motorcycle Club and wear the same patch as his father. When a life-long dream becomes reality, Jeremy realizes that the outlaw lifestyle is not for the faint of heart. Nor is it easy on relationships. He wants to be a good man, but temptation is everywhere.

Cheyenne is beautiful, and strong, and exactly what Jeremy could have forever. As long as he doesn't screw it up.

Love is never more powerful than the first time.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Watching her place her perfect lips on the side of Logan's face made me cringe. I know I have no right to feel this way, but those two have something that I can't quite understand, and I'm jealous. The question is, what do I do about it? As she walks toward me with a huge smile on her face, all my craziness evaporates into the evening sky.

"You ready?" she asks.

"As I'll ever be," I reply.

After swinging my leg over my bike, I pass Chauna a helmet, and we put them on together. As she swings her leg over, I hold still and wait for the moment she wraps her arms around me. I take a deep breath as she eases into me and rev the engine to life; all eyes are on us.

"Hold on tight," I say, and she pulls herself even closer. We take the driveway slow, but when we hit the main road, I pull the throttle and we pick up speed as we make our way toward Sammy's. As we approach the drive-in, I realize that Chauna is completely right; this place is nothing like it was earlier today. The Sammy's Drive-In light is lit up like Christmas, and it reminds me of Flo's Café in the movie Cars. There0s so much neon, and instead of cars, there are monster trucks everywhere. Pulling the bike in, we park, and I look to Chauna for direction as country music plays in the background.

"Welcome to Barber. Where the trucks are hot, but the girls are hotter," she says with pure sexiness. In this moment, I know that this is just the beginning of an epic, new chapter in my life.
