Wednesday Words: Anger

wurkn-on-mai-plan-for-word-domination-caleb-pupI wasn’t going to post today. I’ve got so much going on and the Toaster Box (my computer) is giving me fits. I fear a new computer is in the cards. 😦 But then I realized today’s #1lineWed theme is perfect to introduce REMEMBER THE NIGHT (A Nightriders MC Novella), because in the opening? Yeah, Lucky Malone, the hero, is just a little upset with the situation. Not to mention that the woman standing there is one he’s never forgotten…

Here’s the cover and the opening scene:

Remember the Night 680Lucky
Watching her stand there shaking with cold and shock while a callous cop asked questions pissed me right the hell off. She’d sacrificed her wool muffler as a tourniquet on Tag’s leg and her coat to keep him warm. A firefighter poured bottled water over her bloody hands as she struggled through her answers.

“He—the motorcyclist I mean, was in the southbound left turn lane, a few cars back. The arrow changed to green and everybody in the turn lanes moved. He’d cleared the intersection when the light turned green. I was going north and started forward but this black SUV came from the west and cut me off.” Her eyes slid over to the rust-red stain where Tag had almost lost his leg and sniffled. “It hit him. Deliberately.”

The firefighter pressed a wad of paper towels in her hands and walked away. Fuck. Her lips were as blue as my balls. Gemma West. I’d walked away from her ten years ago when she’d been a scrawny sixteen-year-old. She damn sure wasn’t a kid anymore.

“Deliberately? How do you know their intent?”

Gemma huffed out a breath and started to wrap her arms around her chest. She stopped when she realized her shirt was bloody. “Because after they ran the red light, they pulled up next to him. He was in the left lane, they were in the right. The SUV swerved right into him.”

“Why were you paying such close attention?”

Her expression went all What the hell? as she answered. “Because I laid down skid marks to keep from hitting them and while I was stopped, I turned to watch as I was reaching for my phone to call 911.”

Dancer Calhoun, vice president of the Oklahoma Chapter of the Nightriders MC and one of my best friends, stood beside me, also listening to the cop’s interrogation. We’re Wolves—shape shifters—and even in human form, our hearing’s preternatural. Without considering the consequences, I shrugged out of my leather jacket. I ignored the cop’s sneer as I walked up behind Gemma and dropped the coat over her shoulders.

Back of the Book Blurb:
Everybody knows you don’t mess with a big, bad Wolf. Well, everyone except Gemma West…

If a Wolf plays his cards right, he might get lucky in love…
Ten years ago, Lucas “Lucky” Malone ran from charges of murder, leaving behind the girl destined to be his mate. Now he makes his own odds as president of the Oklahoma Chapter of the Nightriders.

When a girl’s luck runs out…
Bad luck follows Gemma West like a black cloud. She just wants to go home but when she witnesses a horrific car crash, she can’t turn her back. Coming face-to-face with the only man she’s ever loved might be the worst luck of all.

An accident brought them together, but an MC war is brewing and the last thing Lucky needs is to take a gamble on the one woman guaranteed to make him howl at the moon. How can this moonstruck Wolf walk away from her a second time?

Warning: Down and dirty sex, extreme violence of the blood and guts kind, alpha MC members, and a moonstruck Wolf looking to win it all. This is the dark side of the Moonstruck world where sex is rough, death is brutal, and laws don’t mean jack.

  1. Ooo, love it!

    I’m brainfarting out today. I got nothing. Too much brainpower spent on trying to come up with a heroine name for the next SCIU book.

Got something to say?
