A hot new Desert Dogs novel from the author of Lay It Down
Keep your friends close—and your enemies closer....
Bar owner Raina Harper can’t say for sure what Duncan Welch is to her. With her small Nevada town under siege by a ruthless casino development and still reeling from a spate of murders, she knows that trusting the public face of the corporate invaders is risky to say the least. Though, damn, it’s one fine-looking face.…
Duncan may be a mercenary when it comes to getting the job done, but he’s no villain. In fact, the calculating fixer soon finds himself in the bad guys’ crosshairs, framed and facing professional ruin. To clear his name, he’ll need help from Raina and her roughneck motorcycle club, the Desert Dogs. Gaining their trust won’t be easy, and the molten sexual tension between Raina and Duncan only makes things more complicated—especially since Miah Church, Raina’s friend and ex-lover, would sooner strangle Duncan than shake his hand.
One thing’s certain, though: If they don’t deal with their incendiary attraction soon, the whole damn town might go up in flames.…
McKenna's second Desert Dogs contemporary (after Lay It Down) is an engrossing romantic thriller. Bar owner Raina Harper is on edge. It's only been six weeks since a childhood friend was killed near the casino that's being erected in her small Nevada town, and a mysterious set of bones has gone missing. With the help of the local motorcycle club, Desert Dogs, she's hoping to stay safe. Uptight British businessman Duncan Welch, employed by the casino's owners, is ostensibly in town to help make sure construction goes as planned. When he's accused of causing trouble, he claims to be framed, but Raina isn't sure she can believe him. While Raina and Duncan appear to be as different as oil and water, a sizzling sexual chemistry arcs between them. McKenna's deft plotting and endearingly flawed characters will keep readers coming back for more.
