When the biker who broke her heart rides into town, a woman must choose between passion and duty. Jackie Ashenden ups the ante in a seductive series co-written with Megan Crane, Rachael Johns, and Maisey Yates.
Leonidas “Blue” Delacroix might be the prodigal son of New Orleans aristocrats, but the Deacons of Bourbon Street are his real family. And with their patriarch murdered, Blue wants nothing more than to unleash hell on the motorcycle club’s enemies—even if it means taking up arms against the girl who used to be his best friend. She’s done quite a bit of growing up, and suddenly their chemistry is red-hot. But where’s the line between ruthless seduction and sweet temptation?
For Alice Day, loyalty is everything. When Blue skipped town, she had no choice but to adopt a new family: their rivals, the Graveyard Ministry. Seeing him again reawakens old feelings . . . and fiery fantasies. Alice could never forget the scent of leather on his skin—just as she could never forgive the sting of his betrayal. But while the Ministry has treated her like one of their own, Blue is part of her soul. And as their liaisons hit the boiling point, Alice trusts her heart with the deadliest choice of her life.
Praise for Hold Me Down
“Ashenden’s contribution to the Deacons of Bourbon Street series is full of all the elements that make her books so irresistibly compelling: characters with dark, complicated histories; high stakes and higher tension; and an emotional, gripping plot that isn’t afraid to test both protagonists’ hearts and mettle. Though her hero is all alpha, the heroine’s self-assurance and resolve make her a perfect, if contentious, match for him, and their fiery exchanges make this story something to savor. A pitch-perfect setting and a keen eye for detail round out a story that is sure to please Ashenden fans and series devotees alike.”—RT Book Reviews

Netgalley for an honest review.
This MC romance novel had angst, alpha male, strong heroine and was very hot!!!
Our hero is Blue who has been away from the MC Deacon's for ten years. He's back to find out who murdered Priest,the former president of the MC.
When he left, he also left his best friend behind who he never forgot, Alice.
Alice our heroine has to be one of the strongest heroines I've read in a while. She beautiful, independent, but also a women who experienced a lot of hurt. She Love Blue and was heart broken when he left the MC.
After ten years these two meet up again and the chemistry and sexual tension between these two jumps off the pages. We have some hostility between the two the first couple meetings due to some misunderstandings. Alice joined a rival MC in the years that Blue was gone and now works in a Motorcycle shop. Blue was a great hero who was totally alpha (be warned) but also sweet and caring. He was protective and determined to win Alice back. They decided to work together to try and find out who murdered Priest.
This was an intense, sexually charged read. These two characters played off each other well and the development of the relationship was excellent. Well written and fast paced. You reconnect with some of the characters from past books. I have to say these authors have done an excellent job in connecting and continuing the story.
