Shift
Disciples' Daughters #2
by
Drew Elyse

Release Date: April 19, 2016

Genre: Contemporary/MC Romance





✾ Synopsis ✾


Once a Disciple, forever a Disciple.

After the death of her father, Ash learned an important lesson: being a Disciple is dangerous. The club her father had loved, the club that had been their family, took him from her. She couldn't stay and wait for the day it would take the man she loved from her, too. So, she left.
Now, she's the one in danger, and the Disciples are the only ones that can keep her safe. She has no choice but to return to the club and the man she left behind.

A Disciple will fight like a savage for what is his.

Sketch has what he needs: his tattooing, the club, and his bike. Anything else would require a heart, and his was ripped out of his chest a long time ago. It wasn't coming back.
At least, not until she did.
His heart isn't the only thing Ash brings with her, though. She has a daughter. A daughter old enough to be his. A daughter Ash claims might not be. But in his heart, Sketch knows the truth. That little girl is his... just like her mom.

This biker knows one thing: a Disciple's daughter's return is about to make his whole world shift.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Prologue

Gabe

5 Years Ago

"You can't be serious."

I said the words, but looking at the girl in front of me, I could tell she was. My Ash was reserved. Her emotions were always hiding beneath the surface. They broke through only sometimes.

In that moment, her desperation wasn't hidden at all.

"It's dangerous," she insisted.

I tried to stay calm, to reason with her. "Ash, babe, just last week you were as excited as I was about me getting a prospect patch. I've always wanted to be a Disciple, and it was what you wanted, too."

"That was before they killed my dad!"

Fuck.

Her head was totally fucked over this.

"You know they didn't. They're mourning Indian as much as I am, as much as you are. He died, and it's fucking terrible, but you know any of those men would give their own life to bring him back to you. If you just calm down, you know it's true."

Tears fell from her blue eyes — eyes that had been stained red for over a week. Nothing made a man feel more fucking impotent than watching his woman cry constantly and not being able to do a damn thing about it. I hadn't lied; any of the Savage Disciples MC men would give up their lives in an instant to bring their fallen brother back, to give Ash back her dad. I would take a bullet right then and there just to make her stop hurting.

"They might not have meant for him to die, but it's their fault. The fucking club is the reason he's gone!" She went right on working herself up.

In that moment, I wanted to be able to rewind more than I could put in to words. Just over a week before, we were happy. Everything was good. Fuck, everything was going exactly as it should.

I'd been made a prospect for the club, the first step to my fucking life-long dream of being a member. My uncle, Gunner, put the cut on me himself. It was everything I'd wanted since I could remember, since the first time Gunner brought me around the club as a kid.

The first thing I did? I went to Ash.

My girl, the daughter of a Disciple, grew up with the club. The brothers were her family, just like they were mine. Since I was six years old and I first met her, she'd known having that patch was all I wanted. Fourteen years later, it was real.

Ash was fucking thrilled. My firefly beamed as bright as I'd ever seen her. She’d thrown herself into my arms. She couldn't stop looking at the cut on my shoulders, the visual proof it was really happening. At least, she couldn't stop looking until I got her to take it off me so we could really get to celebrating.

But that night, with Ash curled up next to me in my bed, my cell rang. The first bad sign was the three a.m. call. The second was the way Gunner greeted me.

"Is Ash with you?"

I didn't know why he would need to ask that. Ash was nearly always with me. Indian might not have liked it, but his daughter was eighteen. And anyway, she'd been staying the night with me on occasion even before that. So yeah, if she weren't at home with Indian, she was in my bed.

I hadn't expected him to be asking because there was no way for Indian to tell them she wasn't home.

I hadn't expected that I would need to wake my girl in the middle of the night.

I hadn't expected that it would fall on me to tell her her only family member was gone.

I did, however, expect the way Ash had fallen apart at the news. I was even prepared for the fact that she wouldn't bounce back from it right away. Moving forward was going to be a long road for her, I knew that.

Still, I never could have guessed she'd even think the things she was saying to me.

"So what, Ash? You want me to leave the club? Give up being a prospect and just take off?" She couldn't mean that.

"Yes." Not even a moment's hesitation.

"The club is family."

"I know your uncle is—"

"No. Ash, the club is family. All of them, not just my uncle. The brothers are our family."

She looked at me and something about her eyes scared the shit out of me. "No. I don't have a family anymore."

Fuck. It was so much worse than I thought.

"Baby, the brothers are still your family. They helped raise you. Can you honestly say Roadrunner, Tank, Gunner, Stone — none of those men are your family? They love you."

Her tears came harder, but there was no surrender in her. "It doesn't matter. I can't stay here and wait for the club to take anyone else from me." A sob rocked her before she could say, "I can't stay here and wait until it takes you."

I tried to give her distance. I tried to stand across the room from her like she'd asked so she could talk, but I wasn't doing that shit anymore. The second I had my arms around her, her face burrowed into my chest and she sobbed. It was a position we'd become all too familiar with.

"Firefly, listen to me," I said into her hair, "I know you're hurting, but this isn't right. I can't leave the club. I won't. Once this pain isn't so fresh, you won't want to either. We'll get through this, babe. Just hold onto me."

She didn't say anything. She didn't argue any more. I got her into bed thinking I talked her off the ledge. She was staying. We were staying right where we were supposed to be.

I woke in the morning to find out I was very, very wrong.

Release Date: September 15, 2015

Genre: Contemporary/MC Romance





✾ Synopsis ✾


Once a Disciple, forever a Disciple.

Cami was born into the Savage Disciples MC, but she ventured out to build a life of her own away from the club. She’s engaged now, living a new life despite missing the bikers that raised her. Overall, she’s… fine.

Sure, fine. She’s fine with the fiancé who is more interested in position and image than the woman in his life. She’s fine with the fake people around and the suffocating passive aggression. She’s fine with the fact that she is turning to drugs to self-medicate.

A Disciple will fight like a savage for what he wants. When Gauge tags along to visit his club brother’s daughter, he can’t believe the two women he meets: the fiery daughter of a biker and the puppet with the blank affect. And yet, they’re both Cami.

He sees the fire beneath surface, and he wants to watch it burn. He wants to rip away the man smothering her like a wet blanket. He wants to see the flames consume that cookie-cutter future-wife facade to the ground and dance with her in the flames.

When this biker clutches onto a Disciple’s daughter, there is no letting go.

✿ Guest Post ✿


I'm thrilled to be celebrating the release of my 25th novel, Ride Hard, the first book in my Raven Riders Motorcycle Club series about a new kind of MC with a protective mission. You might've first met the Ravens in the Hard Ink world, but this series stands on its own and is even sexier, edgier, and grittier! I can’t wait for you to get to know Dare, Haven, and everyone in the Raven world! And see down below for a giveaway and a bonus story offer!

One of the things that surprised me about Ride Hard was that food became a major theme throughout the book. Haven suffers from insomnia and baking is one of the things that calms and distracts her, so sometimes she sneaks down to the clubhouse's kitchen in the middle of the night and bakes whatever sweet thing comes to mind. Cinnamon rolls and peanut butter cookies are two of her favorites (and Dare's, too!), and she loves leaving these treats for the guys in the club to devour in the morning. Because you might find yourself hungry while reading *winks*, I thought you might enjoy Haven's recipe for cinnamon rolls — and since I am not much of a cook LOL, I turned to my good friend and fellow author Christi Barth, who is an excellent cook, for her take on cinnamon rolls, very similar to what I describe in the book.

What makes these cinnamon rolls super easy is that they have to sit overnight - which means you don't have to get up at the crack of dawn to start cooking for a crowd of hungry bikers.


Ingredients:

1 package quick rise yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water
4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ounces evaporated milk (I like to use evaporated skim milk - it won't change the texture or flavor, just the guilt you feel for eating a second roll)
1/4 cup water
1 egg


Filling

1/4 cup softened butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 tablespoon cinnamon


Glaze

1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk


Dissolve yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar & the warm water in a bowl and let stand for five minutes or until small bubbles foam on the top of it. In a large bowl, blend flour, 1/4 cup sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and salt. In another bowl combine 2/3 cup milk, water and egg. Once thoroughly mixed, add yeast and flour mixture (1 cup at a time) into it until it forms a dough ball.

Lightly flour your counter, and then knead dough on it for about 6 minutes. Coat a bowl with non-stick spray, put dough in it and cover. Let dough rise until doubled (at least an hour).

Roll dough out to an approximate 10" x 20" rectangle. Gently spread the butter over the dough, then sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. If you like nuts, you could add 3/4 cup chopped pecans. Roll up, starting with the long side. Slice roll (a bread knife works best) into 12 1" thick pieces. Put in two buttered cake pans, with 1 slice in the middle and 5 ringing it. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in the refrigerator at least overnight, but up to an entire day ahead. Bake at 375 degrees for 24 minutes.

Whisk together powdered sugar and milk with a fork. Drizzle over rolls while still hot.


Who can say yum????? Enjoy!

I was born and raised in Northeastern, Pennsylvania where I still live today with my husband and three beautiful children. Like everyone, I have had my ups and downs and have seen my life take a complete change. Previously, I was a working mom putting in 60 hours a week as a Financial Advisor but with the sudden loss of my mom who was my best friend I found myself giving up the suits and meetings for jeans and snack time. I have always had the passion for reading and found an escape through the words of all the talented authors I have read. My passion allowed me the opportunity to blog and to get a wonderful insight into the indie world. I have enormous pride and stay true to the characters and their stories as they reveal themselves to me. I am so excited to have this opportunity to share my stories and hope you love them as much as I do.
