A bomb-strapped body
A rookie cop caught in the inferno

After barely escaping a deadly explosion, Officer Alma Majors has one clue to identify the victim and solve the case: a sliver of bone. But it’s going to take more than shrapnel to expose the culprit. Bomb expert Cree Gregson will risk everything to protect his neighbor from a killer determined to avoid exposure. Protecting his heart may prove more difficult…


High intensity intrigue! With the third book in the Defenders of Battle Mountain series we are quickly thrust into the middle of danger and the action is intense throughout. I wanted more relationship development and a bit more details in their back stories would have been ideal, but the impact of the mystery and danger was top notch.

Alma is sincere and kind and looking to turn over a new beginning for herself in a new town, but she doesn’t expect her first case with Battle Mountain PD to overtake her life so much.

Cree is adept and knowledgeable in ways that are in demand even though he’s only passing through Battle Mountain.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a fast paced mystery filled with action, danger and a hint of romance.

I’m Angel, the President of the Royal Harlots MC. My role is clear: take care of my club sisters and help defend our brothers in the Royal Bastards when needed.

When women start to go missing off the streets of the city, it takes the joint resources of both our clubs to find out why.

I never expected a Private Investigator to get in my way.

Joel is working on this case too. I want to protect him, just as much as he wants to protect me, but there is nowhere we can hide from the danger that is coming. All I can hope is that we both survive the oncoming storm.

*This book contains upsetting themes. It is a crossover between Royal Harlots MC and Royal Bastards MC


A fresh take on a tough and dangerous motorcycle club romance! I really enjoyed digging my teeth into this book of corruption and danger with the women being the enforcers for a change. The characters are interesting and the plot moved quickly and held my attention. A bit more development here and there and it would have been perfect. I’m looking forward to more in the series!

Angel is tough yet tender to those she takes into her heart. As the leader of the Royal Harlots MC she sees a lot in her life and isn’t afraid of doing what she has to in order to get results for those close to her.

Joel is kind-hearted and dedicated to helping families like his. He never expects to fall for the one person he has to ask for help.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a gritty MC romance with a lot of heart mixed into the danger and menace.

Series: A Haven Novella

Small-town landscaper Chance Monroe is a hands-on kind of guy. There’s nothing he can’t create or build, and he has a vision like no other. So when he and his best friend are tasked with spearheading Haven’s annual fall carnival, he’s ready to tackle this project head on.

Dance instructor Eden Clark doesn’t know how she got sucked into this volunteer position, but she is willing to help Chance make the fall carnival the best event their town has ever seen.

When too many late nights together stir up unexpected attraction, will they risk years of friendship for the chance at something more? Or will they play it safe and remain in the friend zone?


A delightful dive back into small town Haven, Georgia for a sweet friends to lovers romance! When best friends are forced to admit their attraction to one another, it makes for a tender romance filled with the love they already have for one another, plus the excitement and hesitance as they step into the unknown together. I love this series, so it’s always fun to jump back in … I would like more interaction with the characters we already know and love though so that it feels more complete.
