Brotherhood. Club. Family.

They live and ride by their own rules.

These are the Raven Riders . . .

Raven Riders Motorcycle Club President Dare Kenyon rides hard and values loyalty above all else. He’ll do anything to protect the brotherhood of bikers—the only family he’s got—as well as those who can’t defend themselves. So when mistrustful Haven Randall lands on the club’s doorstep scared that she’s being hunted, Dare takes her in, swears to keep her safe, and pushes to learn the secrets overshadowing her pretty smile.

Haven fled from years of abuse at the hands of her criminal father and is suspicious of any man’s promises, including those of the darkly sexy and overwhelmingly intense Ravens’ leader. But as the powerful attraction between them flares to life, Dare pushes her boundaries and tempts her to want things she never thought she could.

The past never dies without a fight, but Dare Kenyon’s never backed down before . . .

I love getting the chance to read authors who are new-to-me and LOVING the heck out of the first story I read from them. Ride Hard was so freaking good! I can’t wait to continue this series and discover all of the nuances and stories of its characters.

It was very easy to fall in love with Dare and Haven’s story. Dare was the President of the Raven Riders MC and their mission included helping the less fortunate. They provided safety and security to victims of domestic abuse and aided in developing a new life for survivors. Who wouldn’t love that? Haven was their latest client. She had recently run away from her father, who was the head of a criminal enterprise in Georgia, and was hoping to start fresh as far away from him as possible. She never expected to fall for one of the most dangerous men she’d ever seen. But one look into his eyes told her that his heart was gold and his soul called to her, making trusting him an easy feat. Dare had never intended on settling down. A tragic event from his past had instilled in him the belief that it was better to not form attachments. But he honestly couldn’t resist the sweetness that was Haven. Unfortunately, their time together was finite because she needed to start her new life, which would be away from Dare. Falling in love is never easy, huh? And when trouble comes calling, will these lovers even make it out alive?

"He’d told her once that she could find beauty in the world, and he’d been right. It was him, all along."

I really liked this story. It had suspense, drama, action and plenty of heart. I loved the brotherhood amongst the club members and the passion and commitment they each shared. Maverick, Dare’s cousin, seems to be in love and I’m eager to continue this series with his story, Ride Rough.
