Raven Riders Book One; Standalone
Releasing: April 26, 2016
Brotherhood. Club. Family.
They live and ride by their own rules.
These are the Raven Riders…
Raven Riders Motorcycle Club President Dare Kenyon rides hard and values loyalty above all else. He’ll do anything to protect the brotherhood of bikers—the only family he’s got—as well as those who can’t defend themselves. So when mistrustful Haven Randall lands on the club’s doorstep scared that she’s being hunted, Dare takes her in, swears to keep her safe, and pushes to learn the secrets overshadowing her pretty smile.
Haven fled from years of abuse at the hands of her criminal father and is suspicious of any man’s promises, including those of the darkly sexy and overwhelmingly intense Ravens’ leader. But as the powerful attraction between them flares to life, Dare pushes her boundaries and tempts her to want things she never thought she could.
The past never dies without a fight, but Dare Kenyon’s never backed down before…
RIDE HARD was incredibly erotic and completely engrossing. It had an intensely addictive connection between Dare and Haven that couldn’t be stopped; the age difference and the sheer fact that she was his client created such a sexy tension that I found myself overheating quite often. Add in the fact he’s a big, handsome man who’s rugged and a bit of a bad boy alongside Haven’s demure, naive self that has been severely held back by her father’s hand, and you have one heck of a story. Plus, we all know Ms. Kaye writes fabulous romantic suspense.
With Haven under the Ravens’ protection, and their vow to keep her safe, the shy, demure young woman blossoms. Having been under such strict restrictions, her first time tasting freedom gives her the courage to reach for things she never would dream of. And Dare’s inner strength to fight for women’s rights and his magnetic charm are the perfect storm for Haven to lose herself in. RIDE HARD is more than a love story. It’s also about a woman finding herself in a world where she never could and the man good enough to open the way. Aside from it being very inner-thought heavy at times, this was a great start to a series and a beautiful love story. It paired a hero and heroine that had contrasting personalities, but blended them together perfectly. Also, with the way that Ms. Kaye built up the surrounding characters, I am more than excited to see where each of them goes.
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! I hope you enjoy this excerpt from the book!:
His left hand dragged down her body, over the small mounds of her breasts and the flat plane of her stomach. His fingers settled on the button to her jeans. “Because you realize now I have to exact my revenge.” He paused there, giving her the chance to tell him to back off.
She shivered beneath him. “I guess fair’s only fair,” she whispered.
That’s my girl, he thought, even though the sentiment was really problematic. On all kinds of levels. “You want me to stop, Haven, you just say the word.”
“Don’t stop,” she said, her lips parting, her breathing coming faster.
On a groan, Dare claimed her mouth with his. He tugged the button to her jeans free, yanked down the zipper, and pushed his hand beneath the snug material to find her hot and so damn slick.
Her tongue stroked against his, and he swallowed her moans as his fingers stroked her folds. She rocked her hips and parted her legs without him having to ask, pulling a growl of approval from low in his throat—and making him know that fingering her wasn’t going to be enough.
Not for him.
Not this time. And not that it had really been last time, either.
Dare wanted more of Haven. He wanted to taste her, drink her down, wear her on his skin. On his mouth.
Kissing her long and hard and deep, he gently withdrew his hand from between her legs and pushed at the denim around her waist. Haven clued in to what he was doing and helped him push down the material until she was bared to her knees.
And then Dare shoved down her body, gripped her hips in his hands, and planted his face against the triangle of blond hair at the junction of her thighs.
