She should never have stayed.

I should never have kept her.

Bad guys like me? We crave violence, danger, and someone warm in our beds. 

Someone like her? She is beautiful and surprisingly strong. 

But saving her was a mistake for both of us. It would have been easier if I'd let my MC kill her when they were getting revenge on her uncle. 

Now it's too late. 

I don't want sympathy or forgiveness. 

I just want her. 

Blow Out, a motorcycle romance set in the Steel Veins Motorcycle Club, is filled with heat, nail-biting violence, and heart-racing adventure. Blow Out has been reedited, packaged, and is complete with NEW material.

I felt it through his fingertips the first time he grabbed me, back when I hated him and everything burned around us. Yet, I couldn’t accept it then.
Then much later, I felt it again through every raised hair on the nape of my neck as we sped off that final time.
Hope.
The low, tumultuous vibrations of his bike pulsed their way throughout my chest. I squeezed him so tight that I thought my arms might squeeze him in half. He hardly noticed.
With that shithole bar slipping into the blackness behind us and the crisp night air whipping at my hair, I burrowed my head between his shoulder blades, feeling overwhelmed by this uncertainty. These feelings… they were too elusive to name but so overpowering when they hit.
It was scorching, violent, dirty joy in its purest form.
All that had raced through my head when they brought me in for questioning. What was Muse’s Place? How far away were they taking me? Would I ever see my parents again? But above all, who was this man, and why did he keep me alive?
Eventually, the questions stopped. Not because I found any real answers but because I started living. For the first time, I really felt alive.
It was horrible. I didn’t have time for questions because I couldn’t control anything around me anymore. All I could do was listen, watch, and pray.
I didn’t pray anymore.
I realized that back home when I was safe, I was always so pent up, so uptight. I felt like I was waiting for something or that I needed to start something. Whatever it was, I didn’t have it, so I filled my mind and heart with questions to distract myself from that... lingering emptiness I carried around. What time was my next shift? How the fuck was I going to make it through my accounting class this semester? Did I reach my step count for the day?
Looking back, it was all so meaningless. I can’t relate to that girl anymore. I used to know hermebut now... I wasn’t so certain. Did I even like the person I was turning into?
What would it take to survive in the world that I was now a prisoner of?
I was pretty sure that before all this was over, I was going to die. But there was something comforting in knowing that if I did, he’d be with me and we’d die together. So much had happened these past few days. There were so many things I didn’t knowlike where the hell we were going now or even if I could fully trust him.
But he was all I had. My only lifeline in this dark, dirty, and dangerous biker world.
And that was fucking terrifying.
We rode away from Muse’s Place faster than I’d ever experienced. His bike’s engine roared like Death’s hot laughter, reminding us of the decisions we’d made tonight and how they’d further change our lives forever.
But as hopeless as everything seemed in this one, fleeting moment, I had exactly what I’d always been searching for. The one thing I couldn’t ever even put into words.
He is Remy Daniels of the Steel Veins Motorcycle Club. He’s a cold, heartless, and cunning murderer. He’s the worst person I’ve ever known.
My name is Star, and I can’t stop thinking about him.
God help me… I think I’m in love.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Right? What if he’s my lover? What if he’s my enemy?

Secrets, double lives, and a hidden agenda collide with hope, humor, and adventure as the passion between two star-crossed lovers ignites.

Hawk is a biker driven by a singular purpose, fueled by an all-consuming need. A need for vengeance. He’s spent the last four years planning his retaliation, and it’s time to strike; it’s time to annihilate his enemy.

Zoe has one rule in life: no regrets. She lives on the edge and is willing to risk everything for her crusade. A crusade for justice. She’s spent the last four years on a crime spree of epic proportions, all for the good of the cause. All to destroy her enemy.

Escalating war consumes the underworld of Broadwater Bay, an underworld where Hawk and Zoe live on opposite sides, behind enemy lines. Will they be able to trust each other long enough to discover that they have the same enemy?

Because the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Or is it lover? Or is it another enemy?



Before I can second guess myself, my right hand slides to the small of my back, fingertips brushing along the rough grip as I latch onto my Glock. Whipping my arm around and bringing my other hand up to stabilize the butt, I aim my weapon square at the chest of the man who wears the colors of my sworn enemies.
"Yep, you got balls, and you're stupid." He laughs at me.
Laughs!
"You think this is a joke?" I challenge him.
"You tell me, Princess. When it comes down to it, do you really have it in you to pull the trigger?" the biker asks, seeming to be completely at ease as he stares down the barrel of my gun.
"Do you really want to find out?" I bluff.
"Gotta say, the idea of taking another bullet isn't top of my to-do list; it hurts like a bitch."
"I know." The words of agreement escape my mouth.
The biker's eyes widen for a fraction of a second before his mask of amusement settles back into place.
"The recovery though"—he sends me an enigmatic grin—"let's just say the girls around here are fuckin' good at taking care of a man who's been injured in the line of duty, almost makes it worth it."
It's taking everything in me to keep a steady hand, keep the steel in my eyes, hold my ground, and I'm doing it. So why is this guy treating me like a joke?
It takes less than ten seconds before I receive my answer.
Movement shifts across my peripheral vision. I don't take my eyes off my target, not for a second, but I don't need Kenzi's superpower to tell me that at least five people, possibly six, are moving around me and taking position.
Two men step into my direct line of sight. One of them trains a gun on me. My eyes stare down the barrel and then to the man aiming it. He's got a jagged scar running down the side of his face. Starting at his hairline, it bisects his right eyebrow, stopping there, and picking up again on his cheekbone, then it swoops down and outward across his cheek all the way to his jawline. It's mesmerizing in its beauty, and more terrifying than the weapon the man holds.
Instinctively, I know he's the least dangerous of the two men who now flank the hulk on the bike. The second man is unarmed, but his presence sends chills down my spine. He levels me with an icy stare, which holds me immobile.
"Venom, nice of you to join the party." The man on the bike grins up at the lethal biker who's taken position on his left. "Have you met Zoe? She's got spunk. I think I'm a little jealous of Hawk."



Ivy Lucas writes romantic suspense novels that feature a healthy dash of humor, kickass heroines, and hot alpha men. She is a dreamer, professional reality-escape-artist, and has a serious coffee addiction.

Ivy has always been obsessed with reading, and when she didn’t have her face buried in a book, which was often because she devoured them, she would make up her own stories to fill the void. Ivy’s imagination is a crazy and dangerous place to be, even for her independent, sassy female characters. It’s also the best place to meet sexy men who have that panty-dropping, anti-hero thing going on.

A woman of the world, Ivy was born in Holland, grew up in New Zealand, and spent a year living in Europe when she was a teenager. She traveled to Australia not long after finishing school for a one-year working holiday and never left. She now lives in sunny Queensland with her soul mate, their two kids, and a fluffy white cat.

Over the years Ivy has been a jack of all trades and master of none - until the day she decided to write down one of those stories she had floating around in her head. That was when she realized her passion for books was about more than just reading them. She had stories to tell and they were demanding to be told.

Staring down the barrel of a loaded 9mm is a wake-up call, especially when it’s your husband’s finger on the trigger. Brooklyn James’s only thought is to take her baby and run. It's better to end up on the streets than suffer one more day beneath her husband's hand.

Finally back on her feet, Brooklyn is stronger, better prepared, and determined not to run. That is until she gets the call that her husband has been released from prison after serving his three years for DWI.

Cain James has his wife on his mind, always. With his friend Donovan at his side, anything is possible. He can find her, bring her home, make her love him again. While Cain has serious anger issues, Donovan is much worse. Cain can’t control his friend's sick, twisted mind and even sicker actions.

Donovan has Cain's best interest at heart, and he'll do whatever it takes to help Cain bring his wife home—including murder. After his time in prison, Cain doesn’t want to hurt his wife again and becomes a man torn—divided between the darkness inside him, his twisted love, and his lifelong protector, Donovan.

As Cain tries to convince his wife that he’s changed, he watches the bodies hit the floor one by one at the hands of his sidekick. Enraged by his estranged wife’s new love and conflicted by his own anger and need to protect his family, Cain unravels.

He can’t live without her, and he won’t let her live without him.

Unable to resist the knowledge that my family is only separated from me by an apartment door, I pocket my keys and rush to the door. After knocking, I duck just out of view of the peephole, hoping she might open the door.   

The door flies open, and I’m not faced with my wife, but my child.  She stands wide-eyed and curious, looking up at me. “Hi, baby, remember me?” I crouch to her level.     

Brooklyn comes around the corner, freezing when she sees me in her open door.  “Carissa, why did you answer the door? I told you…,” she starts with a tremble in her voice.   

“Mama, it’s Daddy! Daddy’s back!”   

She remembers me. I laugh with tears in my eyes, accepting the child that rushes into my arms in a hug. “You remember!” I laugh, standing and lifting her off the floor. I don’t wait to be asked in, knowing I won’t be. Stepping inside, I shut the door behind me with a kick.    

Brooklyn is pale, gaping at me as if I’m not real. My heart pounds in my chest and I want to touch her, but she looks completely terrified.     

Can't blame her for that.    

“What are you doing here?” Her voice is strangled, hushed.   

“Baby, we need to talk. I need to tell you some things. Please don’t be scared.” I step toward her, she steps back. I don't want to hurt you, not  this time.    

Carissa hugs me tighter, and I kiss her cheek. “Daddy, where did you go?”   

I swallow. Brooklyn didn’t tell her. I want to thank her. It gives me hope to know she didn’t bad mouth me to our daughter.     

“I had to go away for a bit, but I’m back now.”   

“Are you going to stay?”
