New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.
Or maybe not.
Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.
Right from the first.

♦4-STAR REVIEW♦

I have a love/hate relationship with novellas because, a) they’re great for a quick read, but, b) they end too soon. Both are the case with Shade’s Lady because I wanted so much more than what we were given as I’m completely selfish and love being in Wylde’s Reapers world. This novel starts us at the top, with the National President of the Reapers MC and his love story.

Mandy, our heroine, had a palpable quality to her. Her hesitance and raw survivor strength gripped me and endeared me to her. Her unabashed realness and humorous inner dialogue were their own character within this novel and I loved her because of (and for) it. She made no qualms or excuses for who she was and what’s she’s done, but her moral compass was always pointed in the right direction. Shade’s raw attraction to her and the reciprocation she felt, along with the buildup of their sexual tension, created a sexy, but lust-filled novel.

Wylde managed to pack in quite a bit into this novella, giving us two fully rounded characters and their love story, in Shade’s Lady and it felt incredibly good to be back with an MC that I’ve come to know and love. But if I could be greedy, I would want more of these two. As it is, it’s the perfect introduction to the series if you haven’t yet taken the plunge and a great addition to the series if you’re a veteran. Wylde’s writing, as always, pulls you in and carries you through to the last page. I can’t wait for more from this MC.


♦EXCERPT♦

“Nope. That’s not how it works,” Shade said, sliding his hand up into my hair. “It was about a member of a support club lying to the national president of the Reapers. He tried to cheat me out of five hundred bucks by promising something he didn’t own. We can’t let guys like Rebel get away with that shit. Wouldn’t matter what it was about, the principle’s the same.”

“There are so many things wrong with that statement that I don’t even know where to start. I…I literally can’t figure out what I want to argue with you about because it’s all wrong. All of it.”

“It’s how our world works,” he said, rubbing up and down my lower back. He might’ve been trying to soothe me but my thoughts were spinning too fast. “There’s good and bad. Part of the good is that when you belong to someone in a club, it’s not just his job to protect you, it’s the whole club’s. I’d die for Dopey’s old lady and I don’t even like the bitch. He’s my brother, though, and she’s his property. It is what it is.”

Dear Reader,

Isabelle “Belle” March is a nobody. A nothing. A Peasant. No one even knew who she was until one of the Royals, Adam “Beast” Castle, decided she was hot enough to ignore the hierarchy at our school—a hierarchy I myself set in place. I run this school, and the Upper East Side, too. Here at H.E.A., we stick to a strict social status, something most of Manhattan does, too. So when Beast starts dating Belle? All hell breaks loose.

Royals shouldn’t date Peasants, and you’re about to see why.

Oh, and please don’t buy this thinking you know how this story is going to end. You know nothing. Nobody here at H.E.A. plays by the rules, or follows the books. The only one who knows anything around here is me…

And I’m not telling anyone a thing.

XOXO,
Elsa
