Liam ‘Viking’ Callahan is the ex-body man for The Road Devils MC, and by a series of horrible circumstances, he finds himself over in the mountains in Utah, disposing of yet another piece of evidence. He drives away and thinks that the mess is over, his obligation to his club and brothers met. What he doesn’t know is that he has a stowaway hidden in the back of his van, a woman desperately fleeing her personal hell on earth.
Iris has been planning her escape from Gideon and The Garden of Divine Light for six months, and is nothing but horrified when she comes across a man in the forest, smack in her escape route, clearly up to nothing good… but he’s still better than what she’s running from, so into the van she goes.
When the Road Devils discover Iris, they start to put the pieces together about who she is, what she’s been through, and why she ran into the winter night wearing only a nightgown and men’s boots. She’s down but not out, and she’s fiercely determined to start her life again – on her own terms this time – and part of that is her desire to not fear a man’s touch, a man’s kiss, a man’s body. And the only man that she feels safe around is the six-foot-seven, gentle, wildly-handsome Viking.
Viking and Iris slowly move towards each other, learning to trust each other, completely unaware that danger is coming their way. Gideon wants his property back, and he will stop at nothing to make sure that happens…
