Book Blurb


For me, growing up did not imply independence. My whole life has been paved before me like a well-traveled road. My twenty-first birthday signaled the end of my father’s rule, and the beginning of my husband’s—where I am expected to churn out infinite children with a smile.

As I stare at the oversized Temple doors, weighed down by more than yards of heavy, white lace, I do what I have never done before.

I make a decision for myself.

I decide to run.


Being in a motorcycle club is in my DNA, as is the military requirement to join. I served, I fought, and I survived the crucible of grueling training and intense combat. I returned to my club with newfound respect for right, wrong, and the shades of gray that connect them.

By day, I work at Ronin Auto, pulling things apart, fixing the problem, and putting them back together.

Grace and her nonfunctioning, little sedan prove to be a hiccup in a well-oiled machine.

Because by night, I smuggle soft felons into Mexico.

With things heating up at the border, and a missing MC family member, the last thing I need is an innocent to worry about.

But something about Grace makes me want to take apart all of her pieces to figure out how someone so beautiful has never even been kissed.

Against my better judgment, I strike a bargain with the little, blue-eyed beauty, and it changes everything I thought I knew. About women. About the club. About the man I’ve become.


noun, plural ronin, ronins. Japanese History

1. A samurai who no longer serves a daimyo, or feudal lord; a master-less Samurai.

My name is Tread, and I'm the lead mechanic for Ronin Auto. I'm also either one of the baddest motherfuckers you'll ever meet, or the answer to your prayers. Just depends on which way your compass is pointing. Literally.

Most motorcycle clubs give you a handle when you prospect. My MC is different. We were given our handles at birth.

Our fathers founded the club after coming home from Panama, having participated in Operation Just Cause, to one members inherited land on New Mexico's southern border.

After seeing what the cartels were capable of in Central America, the founding members saw the opportunity to help our country while helping themselves. They sent the mules back, but kept the drugs as their prize in a sometimes lethal game of hide and seek. They charged a king's ransom to get wanted felons safely out of the country. By the time these men started having children, there was a legacy and a duty driving them to plan ahead.

Once the next generation was old enough to enlist we were on a bus out of town. Defended our nation's freedom with pride. We went Airborne, Air Assault, and Special Forces, earning the pins and tabs that we would wear for the rest of our lives.

When our enlistments were up, we came back to our sleepy town with knowledge, honor, and righteous indignation. Arizona and Texas had walls, surveillance, and patrols, while the vast majority of New Mexico went unguarded still.

While we risked our lives and lost brothers to protect our people, illegals were walking onto U.S. soil with guns and drugs seemingly with the United States’ blessing. One hundred and eighty miles.Seven government run surveillance towers.

Ronin has controlled the border for over twenty years.

The second generation was born to this fight.

We became a dynasty.

This was my first book co written by a man and a woman together. The fact it was a husband and wife teaming up really made it a special read. 
Tread at first came off as the typical man whore biker. But he also had issues from his time in the military. 

Being a Marine mom this story hit close to home with the PTSD flashbacks. It's so hard to accept the reality that war comes home with our loved ones and is continuously fought out in their dreams for years to come. I for one don't take for granted their sacrifice. I really feel these authors touched this subject with grace and  compassion but also with reality.
 First real introduction (besides a glimpse of each other)  to Tread by our heroine Grace was when he was in a compromising situation to put it mildly. He had to grow on me. But what made this work for me was that the attraction and relationship between these two was a slow build. They weren't even sure if they liked each other at first. But when things started heating up it was pretty much a blaze. Grace was so innocent in so many ways yet her bravery came through so strongly with how she faced everything with fists up and a ready for anything personality. I loved that about her. Tread was adorable with how he didn't even know how hard he was falling as he'd never felt like this before. This big strong biker was brought low by a innocent slip of a girl and he didn't fight it at all. He loved her with everything he had.
Suspense is a key factor in this story with the lifestyle of the club a big part of the plot.
Things in the MC are about to change and Tread is ready for that change. There were some pretty scary times and I for a moment thought I might need to put this book down to regroup but I simply couldn't and that made this a book I'll not forget anytime soon. It wasn't so much a love story as a survival story with some romance thrown in that heated things up and made it even more gripping. It clearly laid down the footwork for future story lines. I only hope that this author team keep these heroes loyal to their women.. That is something that is hard to find in MC romance. Really looking forward to more.






Meet the Author

Brandace and Justin Morrow have been through 10 years of the Army life, including three deployments and four children. They met in seventh grade, where they had scandalous hand-holding rendezvous in the gym before school. The courtship was brief however, only lasting a week, given his aversion to the telephone. Five years later he proposed to her on the steps of that middle school weeks before it would be demolished. Through the years, there have been laughter and tears, more time apart than together. Writing is an escape for them in an all too real world. Justin still hates the telephone.
