Author: Karen Renee
Series: A Riot MC Novel #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Mallory Pierce, a thirty-one-year-old widow, has been hiding from life after losing her husband and son to a drunk driving accident a year and a half ago. Friends tried to get Mallory to get back into the swing of things; but it isn’t until she meets Riot MC biker, Cal Robertson, when Mallory begins to live again. The chemistry between Mallory and Cal is volatile from the beginning, and when Cal offers her a ride on his motorcycle, Mallory cannot refuse. Soon after meeting Cal, Mallory’s home is burglarized. Police attribute it to teenage gang activity, but Cal Robertson finds out about the home invasion and insists on helping Mallory put the pieces back together. Mallory agrees to a date with Cal, which goes awry when Cal must take Mallory to his club’s compound so he can fulfill his duty as the club’s Sergeant at Arms. Even though Mallory is physically attracted to Cal, she knows she doesn’t fit in with his biker lifestyle.
Mallory’s relationship with Cal has a rough start, but the two of them cannot stay away from one another. After an attempt by a rival MC to abduct Mallory she finds herself all but living with Cal. There are many things she doesn’t understand about his lifestyle and his world, but she understands she’s quickly developing feelings for this over-protective alpha male.
Cal “Callous” Robertson has been a patched member of the Riot MC for the past nineteen years, and the Sergeant-at-Arms for the last eight. He’s fascinated by the spunky brunette, Mallory Pierce, who is one of the only women to push his buttons. He doesn’t believe the police explanation of teenagers being behind the burglary, mainly because after eleven years in the foster care system he knows about being a troubled teen. He thinks Mallory’s mother-in-law is behind the break-in, but at such an early point in their relationship Cal keeps that to himself. When a member of a rival MC shows interest in Mallory, Cal can no longer deny his attraction to her. Cal is determined to protect Mallory, and get to know her better along the way. The more he finds out, the more he wants her in his life. Permanently. When Mallory is abducted from Bike Week right under Cal’s nose, he finds he cannot live without this spitfire woman in his life, and he’ll do whatever he has to in order to get her back.
Karen Renee has wanted to be a writer since she was eight years old, but it’s taken the last twenty years for her to amass enough courage and overall life experience to bring that dream to life. Some of those life experiences came from the wonderful world of advertising, banking, and local television media research. She is a proud wife and mother, and a Jacksonville native. When she’s not at the soccer field or cooking, you can find her at her local library, the grocery store, in her car jamming out to some tunes, or hibernating while she writes and/or reads books.
