Meet the Deacons of Bourbon Street, bad boy bikers who are hell on wheels—and heaven between the sheets. Megan Crane revs up an irresistible new series co-written with Rachael Johns, Jackie Ashenden, and Maisey Yates.
Sean “Ajax” Harding’s oaths are inked into his skin. Once second-in-command of the Deacons of Bourbon Street motorcycle club, he left New Orleans to protect the brotherhood, and only the death of his beloved mentor, Priest Lombard, could lure him back. Walking into the old hangout gives him a familiar thrill—especially when he gets an eyeful of the bar’s delectable new owner. A wild ride with her is just the welcome Ajax needs. Then he realizes that she’s Priest’s daughter, all grown up and totally off limits.
Sophie Lombard loved her father, not his lifestyle. She’s done with bikers . . . until Ajax roars into town—arrogant, tough, and sexy as ever. And although he treats her like the Catholic schoolgirl he once knew, Sophie’s daydreams tend to revolve around sin. With the very real possibility of heartbreak looming, Sophie knows better than to get too close to an outlaw. But every touch from Ajax is steamier than the Louisiana bayou—and heat like this may just be worth getting burned.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Launching a biker-themed contemporary series, Crane piles on the passion and danger while skimping on story. Sean "Ajax" Harding returns to his hometown of New Orleans when the death of Priest Lombard, president of the motorcycle called the Deacons of Bourbon Street, releases him from 10 years of exile. Sophie Lombard, Priest's daughter and a Southern spitfire, is looking for reckless ways to cope with her grief. Sophie and Ajax's reunion is instantly erotic, and they soon ignore the demands of planning the funeral and corralling the Deacons in favor of sexual escapades. Crane focuses on the erotic, sketching in characters and events without much detail. The plot is quickly abandoned, presumably to be resumed in future volumes. The narrative voice leaps from one character to another, leading to confusion as the point of view shifts. But all of this may be forgiven, as the sex scenes more than make up for the weakness of composition. While there is no resolution to speak of, this tough and dirty world is fascinating and satisfying in its own way.
