Before I met Smoke I'd never been kissed, really kissed, by a man, let alone a biker sex god bent on taking my virginity and my heart.
I got dragged into the deadly world of the Iron Horse MC by my crazy twin sister who is engaged to the club's President and even crazier mom who only cares about herself. Smoke has been assigned by the club to keep me safe even though he's everything that I should be afraid of. He's the kind of man who lives by his own rules and does whatever he wants whenever he wants, but he treats me like I'm something rare and precious, not a socially dysfunctional basket case who has no idea how to love, but needs him more than her next breath.
Not that my feelings matter, because if we don't find my mother soon, the only thing I'll have to be worried about is who is going to kill me first.
NOTE- This is Part One of a Two Part book with a 'Happy for Now' ending. Book Two, Exquisite Danger'(the final book in Swan and Smoke's story) will be out this fall.
A virgin meets a sexy biker god and is dragged into the deadly world of the Iron Horse MC by her crazy twin sister in this riveting erotic romance.
This fast paced plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of action, suspense, drama and romance. The author describes every scene with well written scenes that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated suspense and drama draws the reader deeper into the story. The dangerous MC world provides lots of excitement for the strong characters that grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.
The attraction between Smoke and Swan is extremely hot before the two even really meet and only gets hotter with some frequent scorching hot sex scenes including BDSM. The relationship is hampered by the danger and Swan’s emotional issues and the way Swan and her twin sister were raised adds lots of drama to the story. Swan has a complex personality that the reader may or may not like - naïve and innocent but yet kick ass sometimes. And the Iron Horse bad boys especially Smoke has the readers shivering in passion and forging red hot and dirty fantasies.
The story starts off with a bang and the excitement continues to escalate throughout the story keeping the reader on the edge of their seat. The story has some surprising twists and lots of steamy passion, touches of humor, mystery and sexy motorcycle riding heroes. The story certainly has lots going for it and is enjoyable and entertaining but there were a couple of things I wasn’t crazy about this one. I wasn’t real crazy about the way Swan’s character handled a few things because it seemed a little unrealistic to me and it seemed like I was dropped into the middle of the story at the beginning. This didn’t keep me from enjoying the story however and while Swan and Smoke have a ‘Happy for Now’ ending, they still have more to their story to look forward to.

About Ann Mayburn:
(Off author’s site)
Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.
From a young age she's been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.
Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby.
