Six years ago, Shaylene Alcott blackmailed her way out of the clutches of the Highway Hellions MC, and since then, she's fought like hell to build an existence as far from the outlaw biker world as possible. When she’s kidnapped by the Fallen Angels and stuck all alone in a cabin with Warren, her worst nightmare comes to life. She hates and fears anything and everything to do with depraved, violent monsters like him… now if she can only convince herself that Warren actually is a depraved, violent monster.

But will they choose to be together, always on the run from the Fallen Angels? And if they do make that choice, how long will it be before the demons of the past come knocking, looking for revenge and restitution?
Three years later, Ace was tapped as club Vice-President, and he ended things with Liam to keep them both safe. He walked away from the only person who really, truly knew him and loved him, and returned to a life of hiding and lies. Ace made that choice, and he made sure that Liam hated him for it… and Liam did. He still does, mostly.
But now Ace has royally screwed up, and his life and Liam’s are both in grave danger. The solution? For them to be stashed together in a safe house, until the coast is clear… much to Ace’s delight, and Liam’s disgust.
Ace sees this as a second chance with the man that he should never have left; Liam sees it as his personal definition of hell. Ace wants to make things right, any way that he can; Liam just wants Ace to go away. Now.

Ace thinks so, and he’s going to fight like hell for all of those chances, and more. He’s ready to fight for everything.
Even if his biggest opponent is the man that he loves more than his own life.
