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 best bucking bulls are rank… and so are the cowboys who ride them

I’m super excited to announce that RANK released with HarperCollins Publishers today!

When I was about four years old, I followed my older sister and cousins for a walk across our grandparents’ acreage in Regina, Saskatchewan. We reached the south fence as the sun started to set. I was convinced that we, or at least I, wasn’t going to be able to make it back to the ranch house before it got dark. That’s when my Papa rode up on his white horse. He extended his hand down to me and swooped me up to sit on his lap. Then he said, “Shall we gallop?” and we rode, literally, off into the sunset. This type of chivalry is why I dedicated RANK to my Papa and every other cowboy with heart and try.

Although romantic and set against the backdrop of the rodeo, RANK is also a serious family drama. As a counsellor by profession, I wanted to write a story about how mental illness impacts siblings, and that psychological angle is where the story for RANK began. I made the characters cowboys because I grew up spending summers in the country, and who doesn’t love a cowboy?

rank hick teaser

Rodeo is all Billy Ryan and his brother Cole have ever known — until one deadly wreck changes everything. With their mom requiring full-time care and Cole dealing with his own demons, Billy needs to step up to take care of his family. So he walks away from his future as a champion bull rider. Convincing himself he didn’t quit because he lost his nerve…

Barrel racer Shae-Lynn, the sweet good-girl-next-door, grew up with the boys on the rodeo circuit. She’s the only person who knows Billy better than he knows himself. She could help him get back in the ring, but there’s a limit to how many times she’ll watch him make the same mistakes. Especially when it comes to her heart.

When Cole’s gambling debts get out of control and the bills at home pile up, Billy has no choice but to enter a winner takes all bull riding event. He needs Shae-Lynn by his side, but that isn’t going to happen unless he figures out a way to cowboy up and prove he’s good enough for a woman like her.

Intense, emotional and complex, RANK is Friday Night Lights meets Nicholas Sparks’ The Longest Ride… with edge!rank teaser

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.
