Jade Moore was no stranger to the MC lifestyle. Growing up the daughter of the President of the Satan's Rebels, she knew all about family and loyalty. Her world slowly crumbles when she loses not only her parents, but her brother and best friend. Her Uncle steps in and becomes the family she so desperately needs. But what happens when the only family you have left betrays everything you have ever known?
Jade is dragged into the Condemned Warrior's world where she is imprisoned for four agonizing years. Beaten and brutalized, she wishes for death, but it never comes. Reaper inherited the MC from his brother, Halo, and will do whatever it takes to keep the club safe. Anything, including handing over his niece to the club's enemy. All he has to do is convince her brother, Tank, and best friend, Shadow, that she has run away. Easy. But what Reaper never expects is for Tank and Shadow to come home looking for answers years later and discovering the truth.
Tank and Shadow return to their hometown to investigate missing funds. It's when they begin digging for the evidence, they discover a much darker secret that Reaper has been hiding. Enlisting the help of the club's Sergeant at Arms, Viper, they set out to rescue Jade and bring her home where she belongs.
Viper's reputation is well known both inside and out of the MC. He is a cold-blooded killer, incapable of any feeling but hatred. His allegiance lies with Tank and the club. He will do whatever it takes to bring Jade home, even if it means crossing enemy lines to save her. What he doesn't expect is to fall for her.

Lady Lisabeth Montague is grateful to set aside mourning for her late husband. The match had been a mistake from the beginning, for she had been young and naïve enough to believe the court-promises of Frederick Montague, a rakehell viscount. Now her abusive, unfaithful husband is dead, and she is anxious to begin her life anew. She is shocked when a request comes from Frederick’s cousin, Norton Radcliffe. Norton wishes her to tutor his own cousin Tristan Radcliffe, a marquess, in the ways of the ton. But Lord Radcliffe is no young boy. He is a veteran, who was wounded during the war and clearly has a mind of his own. Radcliffe, as he asks Lisabeth to call him, shares her uncertainty. It is a most peculiar feeling, one he has seldom known before. Kind but strict, Lisabeth helps him not only with the ways of the Polite World, but to walk again. That astounds him, because he was told she was a flirt who made her husband miserable. But the truth is in front of his eyes. Which is the real Lisabeth? He needs to know the truth as he falls in love, even though he knows she doesn’t want to marry again. Maybe he needs to turn the tables and become her instructor . . . in how sweet kisses can be.

The beautiful red-headed Druscilla Morley has been cruelly misused and abused by so-called 'gentlemen' all her young life.
And most recently by the lecherous Lord Walden whose children she was appointed the Governess to.
Not only had he forced himself upon her. Worse still he has told his wife that Druscilla was the louche philanderer and so she was summarily dismissed from their employment without any reference.
Little wonder then that she now dresses in the dowdiest of clothes with her hair in a matronly bun, anything to make herself unattractive to men, all of whom she despises, loathes and fears.
Now employed as Governess to another noble household, Druscilla is startled to meet her older second cousin Valdo, the Marquis of Lynche, now a famously dashing and handsome 'ladies' man' in London Society and a considerable catch for ambitious debutantes. And she is even more startled to find that he is engaged in an illicit affair with her employer.
Facing likely death in a duel with his lover's furious husband, the Marquis is forced to propose a marriage of convenience to Druscilla, who sees it as an escape from her misery loneliness.
They are summarily married with a Special Licence and Druscilla's life now changes completely as she becomes the new Marchioness of Lynche.
Little does she know that her audacious adventure means that she risks losing her life – or that she is about to lose her heart.
