Sixteen years ago, after a tragedy, Colin “Irish” Mckenna returned to his hometown. Once the grief waned and the anger lessened, he founded the Desert Phoenix MC, becoming the youngest president on record.
Trouble from the past surfaces, renewing the pain and anguish along with it. While Irish’s son is left fighting for his life—Irish struggles to keep from drifting back into the same despair that had almost destroyed him. When he feels as though he is losing the battle, she walks into the hospital room.
Phoenix “Nix” Ellison is familiar with life’s struggles. She went from being raised in the foster care system after her mother walked away and her dad was sent to prison to being abandoned by her boyfriend while pregnant. After the child was born with medical issues, the weight of the world pressed even more onto her shoulders. When it would have been easier to give up, Nix put herself through nursing school. Not only did she do it to support herself and her daughter financially, she did it to obtain the knowledge to help her daughter medically.
As the daughter’s condition worsens, Nix uses every bit of her strength to keep going. She refuses to show any weakness or allow life to beat her down. Even with people around willing to help her, her past experiences make it hard to trust. Until she walks into the room and sees him.
