Where it all began… The Noir et Bleu

netb-cover_orig“What would you do if you had to choose between doing something bad but right and doing something good but wrong?”

Being the youngest of the four Desrochers brothers, illegitimate or not, means Len has always been loyal to the Noir et Bleu Motorcycle Club, but he never wanted to be an outlaw biker. When the club pulls strings to get him out of a long prison sentence for a crime he didn’t commit, he ends up indebted to the brotherhood and trapped in the world of organized crime. He owes the club another week of service before he can walk away. But when the club and his family are the same thing, walking away becomes a life or death decision…for everyone he cares about.

The Noir et Bleu Motorcycle Club Series consist of four standalone novels that can be read in any order. The Noir et Bleu takes place six years before It Is What It Is and thirteen years before One Percenter and The Handler, spanning from one generation to the next of the Desrochers and Gyllenhall families.

The Handler (Noir et Bleu Motorcycle Club)

Today, I’m celebrating the release of THE HANDLER. Unlike most biker romances, it’s actually a sweetheart love story, so, even your teens can read this biker book. And, I’m pretty sure Cain will make a swoon worthy book boyfriend for a few of them. TH_1600For a limited time it is only .99 cents.

 

He promised he would never be an outlaw . . .

While searching for the member of an outlaw motorcycle gang who murdered his dad, Cain Allen is offered a boatload of cash to “handle” the stunning teen popstar Lincoln Todd. Although he doesn’t need the headache of a high-maintenance celebrity, getting out of town will help him keep a low profile until he testifies against the other two killers.

Touring Europe with Lincoln proves to be more complicated than Cain anticipated, and despite his efforts, the line between their personal and professional lives blurs. She’s sweet, smart, and totally unpredictable. And he loves it.

But Lincoln’s association with Cain puts her in more danger than anyone could have imagined. When he joins forces with the Noir et Bleu Motorcycle Club to protect her, Cain discovers the lengths he’s willing to go, and the person he’s willing to become to protect the people he loves…

In case anyone is keeping track, yth billboard walles, THE HANDLER is my third book published in three months. It’s unusual. I know. It just worked out that way because I’m working for two different publishers, and this is how the release schedule turned out.

The great part is that readers don’t have to wait years for me to write my next book. And since the Noir et Bleu MC series books are all stand alones that can be read in any order, a reader can pick up on the series at any point.

I have to admit, it is a little tricky to keep track of all of my books. So, to make it easy, here’s a run-down of the new releases available as of today:

Coming soon…

The next two books of the Noir et Bleu Motorcycle Club Series, and a three-book sweet romance series for young adults titled Brampton Beach.

ONE PERCENTER Book Release

netb bannerPhew. It’s taken a couple of years, but ONE PERCENTER (Book #1 in the NOIR ET BLEU MOTORCYCLE CLUB series) is finally here. I’m really excited to share it with everyone and I hope you love it. It’s a psychological and emotional story about what it is like to grow up loving the people the rest of the world is terrified of. It’s geared toward 18-25 year old new adults, but mature young adult readers will also enjoy it. If you are missing your Sons of Anarchy, this will be up your alley.

99% of bikers obey the law. The other 1% make their own…

Eighteen-year-old Tienne Desrochers grew up in the rough world of the Noir et Bleu Motorcycle Club. Bikers. Family. Outlaws. But after her dad’s murder, she decides she’s had enough. Refusing to end up like her drug-addicted mom, Tienne grabs her younger brother and leaves it all behind…including her boyfriend, Aiden Gyllenhall.

More comfortable in the middle of a bar fight than at a country club, living with her wealthy aunt and uncle is an adjustment, to say the least. No swearing. Designer shoes that pinch. And charming, corporate types like Leland Crofton instead of super-sexy, tattooed Aiden. But even the upper class can’t escape the toxic touch of underworld violence. And this time, Tienne won’t just learn who she really is—she’ll learn who has her back.

Here is the feature in USA TODAY if you want to read more about the story behind the book.

It’s going to be a whirlwind for the next little while because I am also releasing a book with HarperCollins, titled RANK, on April 2nd. It is available for pre-orders now. Then THE HANDLER (Book #2 in the NOIR ET BLEU MOTORCYCLE CLUB series) releases April 27th.

The 6th Annual No Kiss Blogfest

You know what some of the hottest parts of a romance novel are?

The parts where they don’t kiss. Think about it. All that tension, flirting, those not-quite-accidental touches, the teasing, and you’re just about to explode because why haven’t they kissed yet, damn it? Epic build up, which makes the ultimate kiss that much better when it happens.
no kiss
Here is a no kiss excerpt from my upcoming New Adult book releasing in April 2015 with Entangled Publishing:

THE HANDLER

Book Two in The Noir et Bleu MC Series

At one o’clock in the morning, Lincoln’s eyelids drooped heavily and she yawned every two seconds.

I walked over to her. “Hey, you can barely keep your eyes open. Let’s go.”

She leaned her head on my shoulder and mumbled, “I can’t go until Hal says.”

Hal was lounged on a couch with a bottle of Jack Daniels in one hand and a chesty blonde on his knee. “Screw Hal. He didn’t just perform for two hours. I say it’s time for you to go to sleep.”

Her hand slid into mine and she let me lead her away. Tim opened the backstage door for us and spoke into the headset to let Stan and Aaron know we were on the move. Hal obviously noticed because he shouted, “Cain!”

I didn’t stop. I rushed Lincoln along the concrete corridor towards the ramp that lead to the stadium airlock.

Footsteps followed us. We ran and were already near the tour bus when Hal shouted again, “Hey, Cain.”

With my hands rested on her hips, I guided Lincoln up the steps ahead of me then closed the door behind us, which made her laugh. “You’re going to give him an aneurism making him chase us.”

I chuckled and watched through the window as he jogged closer. “Whatever. It’s good for him to get some exercise.”

He opened the door, climbed the steps, panting. “Hey. You can’t, uh.” He sucked in a heavy breath. “There are more sponsors on their way.” He coughed. “They want to meet Lincoln.”

I blocked him from fully entering the bus. “She’s been up for almost thirty hours. She’s done. If they wanted to meet her they should have shown up before one in the morning.”

He produced a lame attempt at a puppy dog face. “Linny, you can do another half an hour, right?”

She bit her bottom lip. I waited for her to speak up, but she just stood there. I finally answered for her, “You hired me to take care of her. She’s tired. Do you want me to do my job or not?”

Hal’s face turned the same purple color as the day of the video shoot. Sweat rolled down his temple in unnatural amounts. “She has responsibilities.”

“Yeah, to perform. She just did that and she did an unreal job. She did enough ass kissing with greasy old dudes in suits while you sat around with a whore riding your leg. She’s done for tonight.”

He pointed at my chest and his spit sprayed out when he yelled, “Listen, you little punk, I make the decisions around here. Don’t piss me off.”

“Don’t piss me off or I’ll walk.” I swiped his hand away. “At this point, she’ll probably walk with me.”

He glared at me then glanced at Lincoln. She was struggling to keep her watery eyes open.

I stretched my arm across her shoulder and said to Hal, “My suggestion is that you tell her what a great job she did and say good night.”

After a tense pause, he asked her, “Do you want to go to sleep?”

She nodded wearily.

“Okay.” He leaned forward and kissed her on the forehead. “You were amazing tonight. Have a good sleep.” He eyeballed me in a cautionary way then left.

I checked her expression, but couldn’t tell how she was feeling. “Are you okay?”

“Yes,” she said tentatively. Then, as if she was nervous to hear my answer, she looked down and asked, “Do you really think I did an unreal job?”

I ran my fingertip along her jaw and lifted her chin. She saw my expression and must have known without a doubt how I felt. My pulse raced as I stared at her mouth. Her eyes widened and her lips parted slightly as she waited for my response. Under any other circumstances it would have been the perfect moment to kiss her, but no matter how much I wanted to, I couldn’t take the risk. I leaned in and brushed my cheek against hers before I whispered in her ear, “You blew me away.”

She wrapped her arms around my neck and I pulled her in tightly to hug her. “Thank you.” Her body relaxed into mine. “For everything.”

We stood that way for a while with her heart beating against my chest. It was the most comforting feeling that I had ever felt.

Eventually, she stepped back and smiled, almost shyly. “Night.”

I nodded, not wanting the moment to end. It had to though, so I said, “Night.” I watched her disappear into her bedroom. Then I exhaled in an attempt to remind my body that I worked for her.

One day handled. Forty-two days to go. It wasn’t going to be easy.
