While Shy is still getting used to being Gravedigger’s old lady and everything that entails–like bonding with the other old ladies, she has discovered that the gals are big fans of this dip when they have a Girls’ Night In. After the first fiasco where Digger ate the whole thing the moment she turned her back, she got smart. She hides the dip for the old ladies and leaves one (or ten) with Digger for him and the boys because she’s learned that Wolves have big ol’ sweet tooths to go with their growls. If you haven’t read NIGHT FALL, you should! Because Shy returns to Kansas City seeking revenge on the man who murdered her sister. Too bad he’s the one man destined to be hers… Gosh, Fate is all fickle like that. 😉 Anyway, you can grab their story at all sorts of on-line retailers for less than a fancy cup of coffee–and it’s a much better cure for your hangover. 😉 Of course, if you’re new to the world of the Wolves who ride for the Nightriders MC, start at the beginning with NIGHT SHIFT.
