DRAGON’S LAIR (Wind Dragons MC Series #1)
Re-Release Date: April 21, 2015


Blurb:

When Faye discovers her boyfriend in bed with another woman, she does something incredibly stupid: she sleeps with his brother, Dexter Black. He’s the boy next door who grew up to be one sexy biker dude, pure alpha male to the core. A tattooed muscle-bound fantasy in the flesh, Dex is now vice president of the notorious Wind Dragons MC. And now Faye’s really screwed. . . . She’s a law student with a future. He’s a criminal with a past. She’s a good girl from a strict family. He’s a bad boy who breaks all the rules. But once Faye straddles the back of Dex’s bike—and experiences the thrill of the open road, the rush of pure adrenaline, and the roar of unbridled lust—there’s no turning back. This good girl and her hot-blooded biker are in for the ride of their lives. . .

*Note: this version is a revised and expanded edition of the indie version. It can be read as a stand alone.



5- Revamped & Fabulous -Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

Why does he want me to go with him? What good can come from it? What I need to do is move on with my life and settle down somewhere quiet and safe. Somewhere without sex-on-a-stick bikers and their douche-lord cheating brothers. Somewhere where my parents aren't around, and I can be myself.

Faye Conner thought she had her whole life laid out and planned-she knew exactly where she was going and who she was going to be with, til it all fell apart. Walking in on her boyfriend screwing one of her friends was bad enough, but it lead to a decision that would change her whole life.... Dexter Black, her now ex-boyfriend's brother and long-time crush. She's know Dex most of her life, has had a crush on him since she was old enough to recognize what the butterflies in her stomach meant-but being five years older than her, the towns bad boy was always out of reach. One night, one fantasy finally fulfilled, one decision she cannot take back even if she's unsure if she wants to, changes everything. Now she's thrown into a world she doesn't understand-a law student surrounded by criminals, under the watchful eyes of the man who is turning her world upside down and her heart inside out.

I don't get this club”
“You don't have to, honey. Love the man, love the club; that's just how it goes. Dex was pissed at Arrow for letting you see what you did.”
Love?”
“Oh, I've seen how the two of you look at each other.”
“Do you need glasses?”
“Oh, come on, anyone can see it. He's crazy over you.”

I read this book the first time it was published and was hooked-so when the chance to read a revamped version came around-I jumped on it. I was not disappointed. We get a brand new prologue and extended scenes-tons of new stuff that just made what I already loved even better. These characters are AhMazing - watching the changes Faye goes through from the time she lands at the MC til the very end was nothing short of fascinating, sometimes harsh and painful and often sexy and hilarious. Her interactions with the other bikers was always unpredictable and never failed to make me laugh. Especially her first encounters with Arrow, her banter with Rake, her relationship with Tracer was actually kinda sweet most times, everyone just falls in love with her quirky personality regardless of their first impressions of her. She certainly took them all by surprise. And then there was Dex. While he had his dark and dangerous side-one you would expect from the VP of an MC-he also had a soft spot for Faye, one he has harbored for awhile. He was sexy-as-hell, protective and possessive, and he definitely had his douche moments with his quick to anger temper and lack of brain to mouth filter. He stepped in and took care of Faye when she had no one else, even if he didn't quite understand the feelings she was pulling out of him. The pace from start to finish never slowed down, the story and characters steadily progressed, the dialogue was fabulous and funny, there was plenty of drama, minimal angst, some violence and action, steamy hott sex, and a ton of people to fall in love with. I was left with a big ass smile on my face, no cliffhanger but just a tease of what's to come. I am more than ready for more from this series -Arrow is up next- if this introduction to the Wind Dragons MC is anything to go by, than the rest of the series will be just as fantastic. Chantal Fernando has earned her spot on my MC One-Click-Addiction List one blush and giggle at a time and I cannot wait to see what she brings us next.

I've known you forever, Faye. You've always meant something to me, first as a punk kid, then as a friend... now it's more. Oh, and you're fucking hot, with a talented mouth.”



ARROW’S HELL (Wind Dragons MC Series #2)
Release Date: June 16, 2015


Blurb:

Anna is a beautiful Ph.D. student whose older brother is a notorious badass in the Wind Dragons MC. Of course she loves Rake, who’s looked out for her since their troubled childhood. But he’s still protecting her—to the extreme. She can’t make a move without a Wind Dragons motorcycle escort. Potential boyfriends flee, for fear of her ass-kicking sibling. And Rake’s made it clear that his biker brothers are trouble of the worst kind, and strictly off-limits. But one of these tattooed bad boys has already pierced her heart: Arrow, the bearded, darkly brooding rider with the body of a Greek God and eyes that betray a wounded soul. He’s sent to whisk her off campus on his thundering steel stallion. And when Anna wraps her arms around his rock-hard torso, it’s too late for caution: she’ll ride as far as the road takes them—unless Rake stops Arrow in his flight. . . .

Release Date: August 11, 2015


Blurb:

Sweet, shy, and studious, Lana was the perfect student in high school—and the perfect target for a horny jock. After being seduced and humiliated, she swears she’ll never trust a man again. But when a friend draws her into the circle of the Wind Dragons MC, Lana’s steel-walled defenses are put to the test. The bikers are so sexy, so masculine and assured, they’re hard to resist—especially the gorgeous one called Tracker…
From the moment he meets Lana, Tracker feels the chemistry between them—and it’s highly explosive. A part of him wants to protect this angel on earth from the hell-on-wheels bikers’ world. But another part of him wants to take her in his arms, put her on his bike, and ride off into the sunset together. Lana wants the same thing—even though she knows it will set off a firestorm of trouble. She also knows that when a woman want something, she has to fight for it. And Tracker is definitely worth fighting for…
