The biker gangs passing through Lobo Norte don’t scare Ofelia anymore. All those men are the same: scarred, homeless, and broken…just like Ofelia. They’ve become a blur of forgettable faces watching her strip. She takes off her clothes, takes their money, and wipes them from her memory instantly.
But Trouble is different. A biker with a wolf tattoo and tortured eyes, he sees beyond Ofelia’s tough disguise to a more fragile woman within. She’s drawn to him like she’s never been drawn to a man before—at least, not since she survived hideous torture at the hands of her ex-boyfriend that left her scarred physically and emotionally. She can’t forget Trouble. And she definitely can’t push him away.
There’s magic between them that neither understands. But maybe if Ofelia and Trouble can find the truth, they can release each other from the chains that bind them to Lobo Norte, to the Fang Brothers biker gang, and to the dark secrets in their pasts…

About SM Reine
(off author’s site)
You would think that writing about myself shouldn’t feel awkward after producing a few books, but it is.
I’m an Air Force brat who was born in the midwest, lived overseas for a few years, and came back to the United States to settle down in beautiful, barren Nevada. I’ve known that I wanted to be a writer for almost my entire life, after I finally gave up on becoming a velociraptor, and I wrote my very first book when I was twelve.
When I’m not writing–which is seldom–I’m nose-deep in geek culture. I am insane about movies. My favorite part is arguing about them, because whatever opinion you have is definitely not as good as mine. I’m also a big dork for video games. My Steam library is a force to be reckoned with, and my favorite game of the week is Kerbal Space Program.
Other hobbies include tickling my son until he passes out from giggling, cuddling my army of black kitties, and eating the delicious Italian food my husband’s restaurant makes. I’m also a strict meatarian and eat bacon for two meals every day.
For the record, because I do get asked all the time–I was born in 1988, so I’m not as young as I look, but younger than I have any right to be. My cheeks are frequently described as “pinchable,” but I’d like to see you try.
Happy reading. :)
