Hell on wheels meets hell in high heels . . .

Macho mechanic Josh Stone likes to get his hands dirty any way he can. Ever since his wife walked out on him and their young son, he’s only had room for two loves: the kid and cars.

While pretending to be his best buddy’s gay lover during a romance writers convention, the player meets the girl who’s gonna rock his world. Leelee Songchild. She blushes at the drop of a hat yet writes hardcore smut to rival Penthouse Forum. To Josh she’s a killer combination. But when the truth comes out all hell breaks loose.

Too bad romance is just for books.


In the fast lane . . .

New York Times bestselling paranormal author, Nicky—Nick—Love is anything but successful in love. This super hot alpha male’s been too busy running from his past and a pack of rabid female fans. Everything comes to a head when he meets the Wildcat of his dreams. Cool-as-ice Catarina “Wildcat” Steele is utterly untouchable until Nicky ignites a spark she can’t control. Their electric attraction explodes as Nicky pursues her, but he comes bearing the baggage of a family tragedy he’s hidden from everyone. Their passionate romance falls apart when Nicky discovers Cat’s secret rivals his own. Will they be torn apart . . . or tamed by love?


What happens at Bike Week stays at Bike Week . . .

Brodie Steele is a badass biker dude. Ashe Kingston is a hot cop with one helluva a ’tude. Their bad blood runs deep but their attraction runs too hot too handle. They make a pact. Sex. No strings attached. One week only. What happens at Bike Week stays at Bike Week. Yeah, right.
Ashe annoys the ever lovin’ hell out of Brodie and turns him on so much he can’t see straight. He keeps coming back for more. Ashe wants no part of Brodie outside of their no-strings-attached fling. But he’s hard to resist with his inked sleeves and rebellious ways, not to mention piercings in places that make Ashe melt. Brodie Steele is dangerous, delicious, and suddenly determined to have her.

Can their hot bond win out over the bad blood of years past? Or will Ashe be taken from Brodie before she lets him into her heart?

4 of 5 Stars
When I started reading I couldn't believe this alpha mechanic was going to pretend to be gay to help out his best friend. The more we get to know Josh and Nicky I understood the level of friendship they share. It is special and not everyone has that.

Leave it to Stone to find a woman that catches his interest when he is supposed to be gay. Try as he might he just can't get her out of his mind. I think he was worried if he didn't get a chance there that weekend he never would. Talk about being in between a rock and a hard place.

Mr. Alpha shows his soft side as well. Still emotional over the loss of his dad even after all these years, show you the kind of bond that they had. His love and caring towards JJ is something else. Funny how kids can crack even the biggest tough guys.

Leelee is a brilliant up and coming writer who is trying to do it all on her own. Hating to be the center of attention makes signing a difficult thing for her. She is poised with her shield of wig and outfits. Being hurt by fiance when he left her for a man. She has trouble letting people in but she can't seem to keep her guard up with Stone. Sure to be hurt yet again

Will they be able to get past the secret that have been told? Will she find a way to trust him and gice him a shot? How will he manage if she shuts him out for good.

Excited to read more of this series.

I love these series where everyone is intertwined and we continue to see everyone grow even though the focus is on a new character set. It is a feeling of home and comfort.

Nick has spent the bigger part of his life with this heart wrenching secret. We experienced his bond with Josh in Stone. In all purposes he considers Josh and Gigi his extended family. The only real family he has know for the past 14 years aside from Mimi. Turning to his writing to give him the extra he needed in his life to continue. When the "Wildcat" Cat Steele shows up at Stone's he knows he is well out of his league. He has stuck to one night stands and always kept people at arms length because the people you love will leave you. They always do.

Cat has hidden behind the walls for so long just in order to survive. It is easier to no do than to fight the urges of her past. There is so much going on behind those beautiful blue eyes. She is thrown for a loop when Nick seems to start sneaking behind those walls. Is it possible? Is she really capable of having these things? Has she lost her marbles in thinking so? She is torn between keeping her secrets so she won't hurt anyone else and telling them so she has not secrets with Nick. He promised never to leave her.....will he keep that promise.

I am excited for STEELE... I can't wait to see where Rie is taking us next.

Rie has completely sucked me into this wonderful family of misfits. This book is emotional in a completely different way Love was about healing and moving forward from your past, Steele is more about realizing you are worthy and capable to move forward.

Steele was the rock all those years ago when his parents were killed in that horrible crash. Stepping up and taking charge while helping Cat to turn her life around. Even though he is the middle child, he is the glue that has help everyone together. Loving his work at Chrome & Steele, getting to use his hand and create. Being the VP of the Retribution MC make it hard to show your heart but we pretty quickly see that he has one of the biggest around. Stepping out on a limb and putting himself out there while away on bike week, he gets more than he bargained for. 

Ashe Kinsgton is just looking to get away from the reality of life while she rides off to bike week. She surely didn't expect Brodie Steele in her wake. She is one of MPPD's finest but she is so... much more. Strong, determined, courageous, loving are just a few words that come to mind when thinking of Ashe. You can clearly see her teetering between want and what she thinks is right. Always worried about how thing will affect her daughter Cara and putting Cara first along with her job.

Thankfully Brodie doesn't give up easy. Watching this family grow through hard struggles and happy times, was something else. 

A wonderful well rounded series that is full of excitement of all kinds. Never a dull moment in Mount Pleasant that is for sure. Some damn hot MC fellas with some pretty emotional challenges ahead. Boomer is very deserving of a strong addition to the series and I can't wait til November.....

With a Heart Forged in Steele

Boomer Steele is big. He’s bad. He’s the Retribution MC pres. He’s been dealt the worst hand imaginable and bears the scars inside and out. Not that anyone knows it. He’s watched his younger brother and sister hook up and hitch up with the loves of their lives, and now he’s the last Steele standing alone. Maybe he should keep it that way.

Then one feisty honey makes him feel, gets in his grill, pisses him off.

She goes by the name of Rayce. And that’s exactly what she does on her motocross bike when she’s not busy getting her hands dirty with her fellow grease monkeys as the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage. She’s into fixing bikes, racing hers, and making Boomer’s life a living hell just for the fun of it. Oh, and she hates being treated like a girl.

Sparks flying? That’s an understatement where these two are concerned. Yet when Rayce needs a place to live, and Boomer offers her a room in his house, their unquenchable attraction wins out over antagonism. Sometimes. Rayce’s crappy upbringing makes her think love is for stupid fools asking for heartbreak. She’s not willing to go there for any man. Not even Boomer Steele.
The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
