With marriage, there are things you can and can't live with.
Harry, my abusive husband, made that clear enough when he beat me like a dog, forced a miscarriage on me, and tried posing me as a hostage to my father's notorious biker gang, The Reapers. I was lucky enough to get out of my marriage in one piece but it's only a matter of time before he picks up my trail and hunts me down. Blackjack swears he'll kill him the second he steps foot in town. I know he means well but there's something about his stare when he tells me I deserve better. A part of me wants to believe I deserve someone like him and yet my bruises are telling me never to trust another man again. But Blackjack isn't like any other man. Is he?
When I enlisted into the army, I didn't think I'd have anything or anyone to lose—except for her. Ashley Monroe, the blond wild-child of Montana's Reapers MC. It shouldn't have been a surprise when I came back home years later to find out that she left town and ended up married. Life went on of course and I was fortunate enough to have Dex, a son of my own. Three years later, Ashley came back beaten and broken from her marriage. I've never wanted to kill a man so bad in my entire life. Just one look at her and I'm drowning with the urge to hold her in my arms and tell her that she's safe with me, truly. Sometimes I wonder if there's still enough strength in both of us for a second shot in life.
