FRANCESCA ~
Cole “Deuce” West from UNDENIABLE by Madeline Sheehan

charlie-hunnam-20

Deuce is THE jerk.  When you talk about bad boys, Deuce is at the top of the list.  He is THE bad boy.  He is the leader of a motorcycle club, he gets things done.  Yes, that means bad things sometimes.  And when it comes to love, he’s not the roses kind of guy.  But he loves deep and intense.  Just what you would want your bad boy to do.

“He was a simple man. He liked kegs, country music, and down home pussy. He didn’t see the need to dress up the fact that he was getting drunk and laid. It was all the same in the end. Sloppy kissing, skin slapping, and a nasty hangover. Why the fuck put a decorative umbrella on it?”

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000448_00034]

Warning: This is not a “typical love story”. This is an all-consuming, soul-crushing, tear-your-heart-into-pieces story. It’s intense, gritty and raw, dark and disturbing, and it doesn’t happen overnight. This is an epic love story that knows no boundaries and has no time limits. It grows and develops—with hurt, sacrifice, and heartache—over the span of a lifetime.

Eva Fox is the princess of the Silver Demons Motorcycle Club. Growing up with bikers in the club lifestyle is all that she knows. When she’s a young girl, Eva meets the reason for her existence. Deuce West is the sexy, biker bad-ass of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. Like Eva, he was born and raised in the club—but that’s where the similarities end. Their first meeting is innocent, but as Eva matures into a woman, their chance reunions evolve into a fit of lust and love. Fate continues to bring them together time and time again, but their twisted journey is filled with pain, betrayal, and bloodshed that could tear them apart. Eva sees in Deuce what he cannot see in himself—a man worthy of love—and Eva spends her lifetime proving to him that her undeniable love is the one thing he can’t live without.

This is Eva and Deuce’s story.

It wasn’t easy.
Nothing worth doing ever is.
And love is worth everything.

 

ANNIE ~ Dallas O’Kane  from BEYOND CONTROL BY KIT ROCHA

dallasokane The kingpin of Sector Four, Dallas O’Kane runs circles around other bad boy wannabes. Even hardcore thugs give him a wide berth. It’s that unfaltering confidence, his loyalty to the O’Kanes and that dash of “Say my name” that sets him apart from all alpha males. He’s a killer and a lover. And sometimes, part of the thrill is not knowing which he’ll be tonight. 

“I’ve always loved you.” A shudder worked through him, and he pulled her closer. “I’ve always wanted you. They don’t have a word for how much I need you. Everything good I am, everything good I’ve ever done…it’s all you. You make me a king. Without you, I’m just another psychotic thug.”

 

beyond control

 

She refuses to be owned. Alexa Parrino escaped a life of servitude and survived danger on the streets to become one of the most trusted, influential people in Sector Four, where the O’Kanes rule with a hedonistic but iron fist. Lex has been at the top for years, and there’s almost nothing she wouldn’t do for the gang…and for its leader. Lie, steal, kill—but she bows to no one, not even Dallas O’Kane. He’ll settle for nothing less. Dallas fought long and hard to carve a slice of order out of the chaos of the sectors. Dangers both large and small threaten his people, but it’s nothing he can’t handle. His liquor business is flourishing, and new opportunities fuel his ambition. Lex could help him expand his empire, something he wants almost as much as he wants her. And no one says no to the king of Sector Four. Falling into bed is easy, but their sexual games are anything but casual. Attraction quickly turns to obsession, and their careful dance of heady dominance and sweet submission uncovers a need so deep, so strong, it could crush them both.

 

 ANGELA ~ Sloane Michaels from The Proposition by Jennifer Lyons

photoThere a few on my Bad Boy of Romance list but my most recent addition is Sloane Michaels from The Plus One Chronicles series. From my review of The Proposition, “I knew he belonged to my book-boyfriend-list. He is sexy, strong, possessive, protective, rich, determined and every other cliché you can think of that an alpha male can possess. Sloane Michaels is an alpha male personified and I love him!!!”. In Possession, he showed us all that but he went from scorching hot to super nova.  Here’s a quote that explains what I mean:  “Are you my depraved baker girl who needs her pu**y spanked?”  This guy is just naughty to the core!!!

 Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.

Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.

**The Proposition is an adult contemporary novel and is not intended for younger readers due to mature content.**

SUZANNE ~ Lord St. Vincent from THE DEVIL IN WINTER by Lisa Kleypas

gabriel-aubry-1-sizedWhenever a bad boy is mentioned, my mind always pings straight to Sebastian St. Vincent. His ruthlessness, his cutting wit, his ability to make me weak at the knees (and wet in the knickers) with just a few lines and a smouldering look. He may be a Lord, but he is no gentleman.
devilinwinter

A DEVIL’S BARGAIN Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage! Sebastian’s reputation is so dangerous that thirty seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden’s good name. Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse. But Evie’s proposal comes with a condition: no lovemaking after their wedding night. She will never become just another of the dashing libertine’s callously discarded broken hearts — which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions … or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.
