Tarnished Lies and Dead Ends by MariaLisa deMora

Wildman learned a long time ago that trust in others wasn’t healthy and might not lend itself to a long life. Blind trust gave a man false confidence and could get a man dead. His first experience in a club told him only a twist of fate would determine if that ending came quick—or slow. It took being brought into the Incoherent MC to overcome his beliefs, and he came to learn that his patch brothers of the IMC were his only allies. Then, in an instant, everything changed. A flash of lightning, shadows on a wall, blood on his fists—and a beautiful woman on her knees. His life would never be the same.

Justine LaPorte had been born MC royalty. Daughter of Justice Morgan, sister of Davis Mason, she thought she’d fought free long ago. Justine had focused on carving her own path, becoming the antithesis of everything any MC stood for—including her brother’s beloved Rebel Wayfarers—carrying her federal badge with pride. Then a federal investigation puts her in harm’s way, and she finds herself deeply embroiled in club politics when she’s rescued by an officer from Incoherent. The IMC is a southern club at odds with all of the organizations in her past. Just her luck, that man who did the rescuing? He has the potential to fulfill all her desires, in and out of bed.

 

In Search of Solace by MariaLisa deMora

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

Myrtle’s life had been filled with pain and anguish. Forced to take things into her own hands, she disappeared into the Kentucky mountainside, shrouded in darkness with only the little she could squeeze inside a bag. Days, and hundreds of miles later, in a different kind of tough spot, Myrt finds herself rescued by a woman who seems too good to be true. Ignoring Myrt’s bruising and desperation, Vanna offered both a place to stay and a hand up.

Slowly settling into her new, charmed life, Myrt’s world is rocked when a van rolls to a stop in the front drive, and out steps a stranger. Dark and rough on the outside, he still makes Myrt feel safer than she’s been in years. Could she offer her trust to such a man? Her heart?

Bane was slowly settling into his role in the Freed Riders MC based out of Northeast Texas. His brothers have his back, and with his evolving responsibilities all intended to foster good relations with other clubs, life is never boring. Witness his most recent assignment. The wife and kids of an officer in a friendly club needed roadside assistance, and Bane had been hand-selected for the rescue.

Easy breezy, Bane headed across state lines, scooped the family off the side of the road, and—as ordered—stuck with them through the rest of their trip. The destination was no hardship, either, even if Baker, Florida, was a tiny dead-ass town along a no man’s land section of the Gulf Coast. Good times.

Bane had anticipated a few no-stress days filled with sleep and relaxation, but expectations been blown sideways the instant his gaze met a pair of unfamiliar ones through the glass of a window. Myrt. Once he’d seen and spoken to her, met her, held her in his arms, Bane found himself filled with an overriding need to protect her. Myrt, a woman under the protection of that same friendly club that was the reason he was in the area in the first place.

Well, this is gonna be fun.

An Embarrassment of Monsters (Alace Sweets, #3) by MariaLisa deMora

💗 NOW AVAILABLE 💗

Owen Marcus has been damaged in the most magnificent ways.

When a naked, beaten boy stumbles into his campground in the Pine Barrens, Owen doesn’t stop to think. His instincts are to comfort and protect, and he does—then the boy mentions a name, tells a story, and asks for his help. In an instant, Owen is granted a mission—save the boy’s sister, shut down a child trafficker, and somehow bar his heart from being broken yet again.

Recent events conspire to throw him back into the devastating mindset Owen occupied years ago, when he’d come home from a covert mission to find his only daughter the target of killers. The rage and grief he felt over her abduction, torture, and murder have transformed the man he was into the hunter he’s become. The sense of helplessness any parent would feel was exacerbated by his guilt. “If only” haunted his every breath, until he’d found an outlet: seeking out those who prey on the most innocent of victims.

Now he works alongside one of the most talented retributionists in the business—Alace Sweets.

In the midst of evil among us, Owen knows he and Alace are counted as monsters. But it is here he hopes to be redeemed.

This is Angelo Dobbs’ worst nightmare. A good man lies dead, and with the Borderline Freaks MC’s president and founding member gone, the leadership position within the club falls to him.

It’s not that he can’t manage the easy task of leading a group of good men; he would just have preferred to stay a little farther out of the spotlight. But when his brothers issue the call, he answers.

Carly Gibson, daughter of his dead friend, is an unexpected—but not unwelcome—complication for his new role. She’s the most intriguing woman he’s ever met, capable and filled with a strength of character. He finds himself instinctively drawn to her. Could he have found the woman meant to complete him, finally?

Over the past couple of years, Dobbs—Neptune to the men of the BFMC—has watched as his closest friends found their soulmates. Now, their women are an integral part of the club. When they and Carly are threatened, Neptune will do anything to ensure their safety—and, just maybe, his future.

When you can’t count on anyone else to save you, there’s only one real choice.

Amanda lost her husband to war. Alex lost part of himself. Through a series of glancing encounters, Amanda and Alex find reasons to continue on. And together, they’ll discover hope and peace can be found in the most unexpected of places.

Bet On Us by MariaLisa deMora

💗 BOOK REVIEW 💗

Jericho Conway is the type of son most people would be proud of. He doesn’t cause trouble, keeps his head down, does whatever’s asked of him, contributes to the family, and doesn’t talk back to his mom. They’ve been on their own for as long as he can remember, and he’s always done his best to take care of her—lately that’s in spite of his stepdad.

Jericho’s a way-too-mature-for-his-age fifteen (and a half), and he’s feeling stuck in the small community outside Knoxville where they live. Stuck, because no one here is quite like him. He’s different from his classmates, has been all his life, but what sets him apart is one of those secrets that can’t ever be brought to the light of day.

Then his stepfather stumbles onto his secret. And Jericho’s right. There’s hell to pay.

Eeerrrrkkk. <–That’s the sound of a screeching halt.

Okay, okay. As the person writing the description, I know Bet On Us might not sound like a totally romantic story right off the bat, but it really is! On the one hand, there’s Jericho himself. He’s amazing, promise. And strong, so very strong. Then we’ve got his uncles, who would do anything for him. In Trent and Jacob, we get to see this dynamic, resilient, and loving couple with deep family ties, especially when you factor in Jacob’s sister and her family. (That’s Jaime, Connor, Nate, and Matt from With My Whole Heart. Oh, and Jordan, Nate’s best friend.) Jericho is finally exposed to the kind of fierce and loyal example for how incredibly sweet love should be, and thinks he might see an echo of the thing that’s always set him apart. Here’s hoping his Coming Out Day gives this precious boy exactly what he needs.

Continuing on …

It’s been two years since Trent first watched his husband’s eyes grow misty as they talked seriously about babies. Two years of Trent and Jacob searching for the right clinic, then the right surrogate, and then the ever-elusive “right time.” However, all of their tentative plans come tumbling down when Trent receives a phone call from his hometown. A place he’d long ago left in his rearview mirror, stuffing all the memories associated with his personal Coming Out Day into a deep, dark hole never to be revisited.

Only now, Trent is forced to return, because the call is about the murder of his estranged sister and the health and welfare of a half-grown nephew he didn’t know existed. Thrust into guardianship of Jericho, Trent and Jacob struggle to help the damaged teen deal with his grief and the hidden reasons behind his mother’s death.

*Set in the world of With My Whole Heart, this story is a continuation of characters first introduced there, and while it can be read as a standalone, is best enjoyed as a follow-on to that story.

 

No Man’s Land (A Rebel Wayfarers MC & Incoherent MC Crossover Novel, #2) by MariaLisa deMora

💗 BOOK REVIEW 💗

Members of the Incoherent MC are no strangers to the pull and tug of disagreements with other clubs in their territory. But waking awash in the bloody aftermath of war’s opening salvo wasn’t typical.

After the slaughter of Hitch’s brothers, he has two goals.

One, keep breathing long enough to avenge them.

Two, learn all there is to know about the angel who saved his life.

Talia had successfully wedged her way into the fringes of her brother Ewell’s motorcycle club despite his attempts to keep her out. Her EMT skills come into play more often than she’d like, and when the IMC, a friendly rival club, asks the Jailbreakers MC for a favor, Ewell—and Talia—can’t turn them down. Even if the aftermath means Talia could be drawn into the maelstrom of war.

Going Down Easy (A Rebel Wayfarers MC & Incoherent MC Crossover Novel, #1) by MariaLisa deMora

💗 BOOK REVIEW 💗

Former Marine Jacob Tinney found a new life within the Rebel Wayfarers MC in Fort Wayne. The club’s members took in Jacob, known as Jock, watched over him as their own, and sustained him with reasons to hold his PTSD at bay for another day.

Into this good life sashayed Silly, Sylvia Perez, a quirky tattoo artist, friend of the club, and woman who hid so much of herself behind a façade. Jock was first intrigued, then enamored, and finally, consumed with lust—and love.

But when Silly is offered the chance of a lifetime to run her own tattoo shop down near the Big Easy, there’s little he can do except tell her goodbye. Until an unexpected suggestion comes his way. 

What if he could keep the brotherhood of a club, the camaraderie he needed, and transfer that to another patch? 

Could he leave the RWMC and patch over?

✦ #ReleaseBlitz ✦ #Excerpt ✦ #Review ✦ #BadassBikerAlert ✦

In the rough realm of bikers, there are no shortcuts to win a place among the old guard. It’s a world where respect can only be earned, trust is painfully gained, and loyalty will be fiercely returned. 

Jerry Rogers lived his life bound to those firm tenets which anchored his brotherhood. MHL&R was more than a patch on a leather cut, it ran thick as blood through Retro’s veins as he worked to better things for his club, and family.

Locked for years in a loveless marriage, Retro still found a sense of pleasure and peace knowing he’d at least always done his best to buffer their children from his single mistake. 

Confronted by evidence that what happened in the past wouldn’t remain quietly buried any longer, Retro embarks on what might become his most important journey down memory lane. One that can only end in blood…and death.
He will prove this to her, one date at a time.

Christmas Doings (Rebel Wayfarers MC) by MariaLisa deMora

💗 BOOK REVIEW 💗

Ester has become adept at taking what life handed her and figuring out how to make the best of a bad situation. Lemonade made from lemons with a quick twist of the wrist and judicious application of whatever sweetener happened to be at hand. Dogs, birds, kids, and every day being Bonesday—these were the best in the history of everything when it came to making her happy.

And when her old man—a big bad biker named Bones—is on a mission to give her everything she ever wanted, she quickly learns to accept the inevitable and hold on for the ride.

Along the way, there are club whores, pups, ride-or-die brothers, and tiny humans. And love. So much love. Is there a better kind of holiday story than one of true love?

Cassie (Rebel Wayfarers MC, #12) by MariaLisa deMora

✦ #NewRelease ✦ #Review ✦ #BadassBikerAlert ✦

Final main book in the Rebel Wayfarers MC saga. 

For years, agoraphobic Cassandra Williamson has struggled to keep her world from collapsing entirely by pushing to do things that bring her pleasure, even as they carry fear. Acquiring art is one outlet she doggedly pursues, determined to bring compelling pieces into her life, even at the cost of nerve-racking visits to crowded gallery showings. 

A long-time admirer of reclusive artist Isaiah Rogers, Cassie has made a point to snap up what she can of the increasingly rare pieces of artwork the biker-turned-painter makes publicly available. Any evening spent at one of his showings becomes a longed-for escape from her ever-narrowing world. The thing with these showings though, is to see…you must also be seen. 

After organizing a meeting with the pretty, blonde art-lover Hoss found so intriguing, his emotions are stirred for the first time in years by a curiosity that feels inexplicably more. He’s been alone for such a long time, could this be his chance to find love again? 

Even with many enemies defeated, life in an outlaw MC is never easy, or safe, and Hoss is forced to make a choice: His happiness, or perhaps her very life.

Hard Focus by MariaLisa deMora

✦ #NewRelease ✦ #Review

This is an intense page-turner, a gut-punch twist-filled story about a woman who has confidence in herself, believes she’s a good judge of character, and has filled her life with people she can trust. She’s right, but she’s also very, very wrong. Readers will have a time of it trying to decide who to watch closest.

Where do you place your trust when your own instincts betray you? 

Connie Rowe is a receptionist at a respected legal firm. She’s a little bit sassy, a lotta bit happy, has good friends, and is adored by her neighbors. 

Life is good. 

She’s got a boyfriend she enjoys spending time with. He can be a little intense, but he’s got a lot going on in his own life, sorting out his young daughter and nightmare of an ex. 

Life is grand. 

“Trust your gut.” That’s what Connie’s police officer father told her often, training his daughter to believe in herself through the years. 

But … what happens when you can’t? When your intuition lies? 

What happens when things come into Hard Focus?

 

Gypsy’s Lady (Rebel Wayfarers MC, #11.5) by MariaLisa deMora

✦ #ReleaseBlitz ✦ #Excerpt ✦ #Review ✦

Gypsy had lost faith in his fellow man and was drifting through life when he found the Rebel Wayfarers MC. Having forever been a stranger to love, he was stunned when it beckoned to him from a darkened room in faraway Oz. The route to hold the woman of his dreams might be turbulent, but now that he’s found her, he’s determined to keep her…no matter the cost.

Full description:
Douglas Tatum was a decorated police officer and considered himself a community servant loyal to the shield … back before he lost the faith. Betrayed by a man he considered a brother, he cut all ties with his past existence, drifting until he found a home with the Rebel Wayfarers MC, and their president, Mason. With renewed purpose, Gypsy, as he’s now known, threw himself into building a new life, earning his way into a trusted position in the club. 

Dispatched overseas to help fulfill a club debt, Gypsy didn’t expect to find his destiny under an unfamiliar canopy of stars. It took just a single trembling glance for the dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty to own his heart.

Kelsey had spent months in captivity, serving men’s sadistic whims. Endless days of living moment to moment, in darkness and pain, she had given up hope of escape until Gypsy walked through the door. With one word from him, her heart settled in her chest, and she knew she was safe. From that moment he had taken control, dispatching her enemies and her nightmares, giving her a chance to be fearless for the first time she could remember. 

Now fate has thrown them another curve, and they’ll have to partner with an unlikely crew to help save another girl. In the series timeline, this story sits alongside ‘Fury’ (book #11).

Fury (Rebel Wayfarers MC, #11) by MariaLisa deMora

✦ #ReleaseBlitz ✦ #Excerpt ✦ #Review ✦

Fury has made a name for himself in club life as a member and officer who calls things like he sees ‘em, and not a man to put up with lies and deceit. When he takes time to think about it, he finds the reputation amusing considering the kind of guy he used to be.

Full description:
As soon as he could, Gabe Ledbetter fled his family’s home in the mountains of Kentucky. Those hills and valleys were undeniably beautiful, but they masked a painful legacy of loss and betrayal. Gabe counted himself fortunate to have gotten out, his scream-filled nightmares a reminder that not everyone had been as lucky.

Gabe, now called Fury, has built a family for himself with the men he calls brothers. Over time, he worked his way from club to club, managing to climb the ladder of responsibility until in his small world he was the top dog. Big man, but one with an empty bed.

Bethany Mason-Taylor has lived her whole life in survival mode. From her first memories of a traumatic childhood, it always felt as if she were skating a mere stone’s throw ahead of disaster. Everything finally seems to be on track for success, and now that she’s put her most embarrassing fiasco behind her, managing the come-back tour for a band signed by her brother’s record label should be a breeze.

That is until one gloriously handsome redhead slipped into her hotel room and derailed all of Bethy’s carefully laid plans. She’s the forbidden fruit, sister of his MC president. He’s her ultimate weakness. Oh yeah, this is gonna be fun.

18+ due to explicit content.

Treading the Traitor’s Path: Out Bad (Neither This, Nor That, #2) by MariaLisa deMora

✦ #ReleaseBlitz ✦ #Excerpts ✦ #Review ✦

Fate is a fickle mistress. No matter a man’s desires, she tends to give with one hand, and take with the other. Good or bad, it doesn’t matter to her, as long as there’s balance.

Ralph Lewis, otherwise known as Po’Boy, made one decision that changed the trajectory of his entire life. On the losing end of a schoolyard fight, he’d been on his back in the dust, glaring up at the boy who’d flattened him. Had watched unbelieving as that same boy stretched out his hand, offering to help Ralph to his feet. Against every instinct, he had accepted.

In that instant, he went from friendless pariah to having a partner and ally. For the first time in his life, he was respected… and feared. Po’Boy spent the next decade defending his position at his best friend’s side. Life was good. Fate has a way of taking back the reins, though.

A long-ago action places him directly in the crosshairs of their enemies, and circumstances force Po’Boy’s hand. Members of motorcycle clubs, men like him who live an outlaw’s life don’t treat kindly with traitors, and in their world, that is what Po’Boy has become.

With events threatening to pull him away from everything he holds dear, he’s made to walk a careful line to keep those he loves safe. Bound by silence, for his brothers’ sake, he’ll suffer through the worst thing that can happen to a man who lives and breathes the brotherhood. Out Bad.
