Author: Kimberly Knight
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Fairytale

Blurb:
Before Zell was born, her fate was sealed.
Held captive in a high-rise overlooking New York City since the age of twelve, she had no friends her own age, no life outside of the penthouse, and absolutely no choices of her own. But what she didn’t realize was the tower where she lost her freedom would one day become her salvation. Her prince would arrive, they would fall in love, and they would come up with a plan for her to escape so they could live happily ever after.
If only it were that easy.
Every girl dreams of her life becoming a fairy tale, even Zell, who’s knowledge of romance was simply from the books she stole from other girls at the brothel.
In a world where sex, drugs, and manipulation is solely the life she knows, the only fairy tale poor Zell would endure would be a sinister one …
Because freedom always comes at a price.

Blurb:

They thought they had the upper hand… but they were wrong.

Since finding out her ex-boss is a diner owner turned kingpin, Juliana’s small-town life has been nothing short of unstable. A one-nighter in Vegas with a hot-as-sin bartender proves to be more than she bargained for when she strikes a deal just to scratch an itch. But with the constant danger lurking around The Pound, the temporary stability Derrick offers becomes a temptation she can’t resist.

The thrill of chasing a certain Latina hellcat is a pleasant distraction from the real world, but Derrick can’t shake the sense that there’s more to come from Diablo’s rapidly expanding empire. When the protection of the bar’s resident biker gang falls on shaky ground and the lines of who they can trust blur, the pair soon find themselves relying on unlikely allies.

Backed against the wall, they’re forced to make the first move, but how far will they go to bring this tyrant to his knees?

It’s time to make a deal with the devil.

Regrets. She has a few. 

Nothing went how Sparrow Malone planned. Her boyfriend didn’t get clean. She didn’t take the entrance exam, and the motorcycle club her father had been a part of is crumbling. To add insult to injury, Jacob didn’t stay in Montana. 

Screw him over once, shame on her. Do it twice, shame on him. Jacob gave up on Sparrow when he left without her two years ago. But Odin’s Fury Motorcycle Club still had business in Ohio, which meant he did too. 

The first time, it wasn’t their fault. Their second chance didn’t end well. While both swore never to repeat past mistakes, they can’t help themselves. 

With the two clubs merging into one, it’s either going to be third time’s a charm or three strikes and they’re out.

NOW LIVE!

A fling, a moment of weakness, a fond memory, those were the things Jacob Karolsson was supposed to be. He was supposed to stay in her goddamn fantasy and in fucking Montana.

Okay, one time. There was one time she’d allow him into Ohio. The rally. She’d concede that. He could come for the rally and she would avoid it like the plague. It shouldn’t be too hard. It was good to have a plan.

“You got any Jameson back there?” he asked once the crowd practically parted for him to walk to the bar. The whiteness of his teeth was a stark contrast to his dark beard as he put his elbows on the bar top, smiled, and leaned over it.

Frozen in place, Sparrow looked him over as though she wasn’t sure he was real. Enforcer. Blinking at him, she realized he’d gotten an officer position. When her gaze made it to his light blue eyes, she stuffed the lollipop in her mouth.

Jesus Christ those eyes.

Something jabbed her in the side, and the trance was broken. The hum of conversation over Aerosmith rushed to her ears, and she turned to see Kimber holding a bottle of Jameson, and peering at her questionably. Caught staring at him like a high school girl with a crush. Could she be any more pathetic?

Taking it, she offered a smile to Kimber first and then looked to Jacob. Still grinning, he seemed to have added a bit of smugness to it. Clearing her throat, she half-filled a lowball glass and placed it on a napkin for him.

Placing a twenty on the bar, he reached for his glass, allowing his digits to graze hers. Fire danced up her fingers, over her hand, and through her arm. She should have yanked her hand back. She should have looked away from him. She shouldn’t have turned into a puddle where she stood. 

“Thank you,” he mouthed before pulling the glass away from her and bringing it to his lips.

Could someone sip whiskey sexily? Was it possible? It shouldn’t be. As much as she wanted to fan herself, she couldn’t. So, she did the next best thing. “You got this?” She may have asked Kimber the question, but she had no intention of staying for the answer.

“No! Wait, I…” Kimber’s voice trailed off as Sparrow made her way out the door of the bar. Dick move. She knew it, but if the woman knew what the hell it was about, she’d understand. Anyone who had any inkling of what had gone on between Sparrow and Jacob would understand why she’d just fled the bar.

The cool Ohio air chilled her heated skin as she walked along the side of the cinderblock building, heading for the back parking lot. She just needed to walk to her car and to drive away from all of it. It was too real.

Her car. Fuck. She didn’t have her car.

As the realization hit, she turned, and her back pressed against the bricks. Closing her eyes, her head hit the wall. She needed to figure out a way to handle these little pop-ups.

“I’m going to have to buy you a new shirt.” The deep timbre of his voice heated her just as much as the memory of his touch did.

“Why are you here?” she demanded without looking. The accusation in her tone wasn’t on purpose, but it was too late now. It’d been said.

The heat of his body close to hers tickled her skin. She might as well have been set on fire at the feel of his hands on her face. Before she could stop herself, she nuzzled into his palm. He made her lose her fucking head with the slightest of touches.

“Do you mean Ohio or the bar?” he whispered in her ear when he brushed his bearded cheek against hers. It looked coarse, but his facial hair was impossibly soft. The feel of it had her face tingling as much as his breath along her neck.

Memories aren’t enough. 

As the son of Odin’s Fury Motorcycle Club’s VP, Jacob “Romeo” Karolsson has a lot to live up to. Going to Ohio for club business is his opportunity to prove himself. If he does it right, he can also use it as his second chance with Sparrow Malone, the one that got away seven years ago. 

But Sparrow has goals and a life of her own. As the daughter of a fallen biker, she knows a woman’s place in an MC all too well. It’s her place within the club she’s not sure about. Then Jacob rides back into town and steals her self-control, her decency, and her morals. 

Amid lollipops, love letters, and a serenade, their undeniable connection draws them to each other. But their club obligations may keep them apart. In a world where loyalty is everything, they have to decide where theirs lie and what is worth sacrificing.

NOW LIVE!!

“You’re sorry?” The deep husky voice came from behind. Jolting, she dropped her apron in startled surprise. With her hand over her chest, trying to keep her heart from bursting through it pounded so hard, she turned.

 

Unprepared for what she saw, her mouth fell open and her heart lodged in her throat.

 

She didn’t immediately recognize him. For the first few seconds, all she saw was his height and facial hair. It wasn’t until she scanned up to his eyes. Those glacier-colored pools. She’d never forget them. The light blue irises burned as they bored into her.

 

The mohawk was gone. In its place, thick dark hair hung just past his chin. Or where she thought his chin would be. He wore a full beard trimmed neatly. It hid the beautiful features she remembered from his youth. Oh, his chin dimple. The little divot she wanted to poke so badly when he was a kid couldn’t be seen.

 

“Jacob?” she whispered, and her heart resumed its rapid beats for a completely new reason. Was it really him or just another dream of them meeting up again? If she moved, he might disappear. She might wake up. So, she stood perfectly still, staring at him.

 

He kept his distance, just inside the back room, with the door closed behind him. Muffled rock music came through the walls, along with inaudible conversations from the few patrons of the bar. However, in that room, the heavy silence weighed her down.

 

In her dreams, he’d speak, but often so softly, she barely heard him. Licking her bottom lip, she worried she’d forgotten his true voice. Then again, would he sound the same seven years later? She willed him to speak, silently pleading with him to say something, anything, just to hear him again. What he’d said before, when she had her back to him, it didn’t count. She wasn’t paying attention. She didn’t know it was him. She did now. He had her full attention. If he would just speak.

 

Instead, he remained stock-still. His tall, lean body blocked the only exit, but she didn’t feel trapped. If anything, there was far too much space between them. As though her feet were cemented to the floor, unable to move, she took the opportunity to assess him. The grown version of him.

 

Starting at his feet, scuffed motorcycle boots made her grin. She’d imagined him riding the long hours from Montana to Ohio with the wind ripping through the bit of hair that escaped the bottom of his helmet.

 

Loose-fitting, faded jeans were torn at his left knee with a chain attached to his belt loop. The left side of her mouth curled upward in an involuntary half grin as she spotted the small—considering he was from Montana, home to many a cowboy—belt buckle.

 

He wore a faded Metallica t-shirt, which he’d loosely tucked into his jeans. Over it, as was the tradition for every biker, was his cut. Those leather vests were a second skin, only coming off to sleep, and that was if they didn’t pass out first.

 

She took a moment to appreciate his club’s little patches. Some were standard, like the four F’s he had on his side. Every club had a version of it. She guessed he stood for “Fury forever, forever Fury.” Her father’s was RFFR which stood for “Roughnecks forever, forever Roughnecks.” The diamond on his left shoulder with “1%” in it was far too familiar. His club was an outlaw club, too.

 

The American Motorcyclist Association commented forever ago that 99% of motorcyclists were law-abiding citizens, the implication being the last one percent were outlaws. It became a badge of honor to clubs like the Roughneck Riders and, apparently, Odin’s Fury.

 

Beneath his outlaw patch, a “Member” tag was stitched under his road name: Romeo. Immediately that half-smile she had for his belt buckle dropped. Heat flamed in her cheeks. What did that mean? A spike of irrational jealousy rippled through her. The idea of him earning a reputation for seducing women had her clenching her jaw, despite knowing it was a ridiculous reaction.

 

“Why’d you stop writing?” His voice sounded restrained.

 

His question, his voice—deeper than she remembered, yanked her out of her insecurity. She had no business caring. She had no claim on him. He wanted to be Romeo, some Lothario biker thinking he’s God’s gift to women, let him. It wasn’t any skin off her nose.

OUTLAW LOVE – Book 1

1

Put these two combustible personalities together on Sam’s ranch, both with a bent toward the outlaw way, in a place where life rests on the edge and a marriage begun for all the wrong reasons, and you are reading “Outlaw Way” Rain’s fast moving introduction to Arizona Hearts western historical romance series.

A heavy gun belt hung on his hip, slung low. It identified him as clearly as her plain cotton dress and tightly bound hair identified her. He was a gunfighter; she was a spinster.

Buy now to start your journey through a fictional version of Arizona history.

Setting Tucson, 1883 Wells Fargo office: “You should come inside.” “It’s not cooler.” “Abigail, ladies do not stand on boardwalks.” Martin’s eyes reflected nervousness as he glanced down the street and back at her. “I must insist you come into the office.” “No.” “No?” She turned her gaze to the street where she noticed for the first time, men coming out of the Pedrales Bar. If she hadn’t known that to go into the office now would make Martin believe he had won, when she saw several of the men mount their horses and wheel them up the street, she might have ducked inside. Their route would take them past her. A tall man, garbed in black, strode from the cantina, cast a laughing comment behind him, and gave a quick running leap to vault into his saddle. The whole movement had been like that of a big cat. She found her attention held by the grace of the man’s seat on a large black horse that showed its spirit by rearing up, then settling down under a sure hand on the reins. In seconds, the man had wheeled his horse and was heading toward her at a fast canter. Abigail pressed herself against the wall. She could not explain the mix of emotions– repulsion and fascination– in equal parts. She didn’t turn her gaze away even when she saw his head turn toward her. He wouldn’t see her, wouldn’t notice a mousy woman like her even if he had, but she felt a surprising apprehension. Startled, she saw him pull his horse to an abrupt halt in front of her. Good Lord. His black shirt was open almost to his waist and she saw through the opening a bare chest. My lord. She should look away, but she couldn’t tear her eyes from him. He took his hat from his head, ran a muscular forearm across his forehead as he turned and looked straight at her. No gentleman would have done such a thing; he would’ve pretended not to see her. Their gazes met and then to her shock, he looked her up and down, giving her a clear view of an angular face. Beneath his bold stroke of a mustache and heavy beard, she could not tell if he was smiling. She sensed for one wild moment that he was considering coming toward her, saying something, but he settled his hat onto his head and kicked his horse into a gallop, leaving a cloud of dust and hundreds of tiny dust devils in his wake. She watched until the desert haze swallowed every sign that they had passed. Only then did she go into the office. “It’s about time,” Martin snapped, his expression disapproving. “Didn’t it occur to you men such as those could snatch a woman, carry her off into the desert, and she’d never be seen or heard from again?” Abigail laughed with genuine amusement. “I think they could do better than me if that was their desire.” He ignored her logic. “Who would have to save you if you were kidnapped?” She realized then that he must have seen the men coming from the bar, and it explained his own quick retreat. She sighed. “Martin, are you reading dime novels again?” “Tucson is a dangerous place.“

Try it. You will not be disappointed.

When famous painter, Patrick Jamison arrives in Tucson, Lily is eager to take lessons and improve her work. But, she isn’t looking for love.
Slow from birth, Jesse Taggert lives on the desert as he trains horses and works for a large ranch. Jesse knows animals and finds the further he is from people, the better—especially beautiful woman, but how can he refuse his brother’s request that he teach his sister-in-law, Lily, how to ride the horse he has trained? Once these two meet, sparks fly. A woman like Lily would never want a man like Jesse, someone who can’t even read. If that hasn’t been enough reason to avoid her, the dangers his father is bringing onto him will be. Lily isn’t listening. She sees things in Jesse he does not see in himself. Some loves are worth fighting to hold onto. Lands of Fire is a love story not only of two people but also of the desert. Danger walks with this land, but the passion it stirs can make it all worthwhile—if one survives. 85,058 words. Heat level #4

DESTINY’S CALL – Book 7

7

She created a fictional outlaw hero — or so she thought. 1905, San Francisco, English Literature professor, Wilhelmina Agatha Tremaine Butler heads to Arizona’s White Mountains to write a novel she can respect more than the dime novels that paid her way through school. She wrote as, Will Tremaine, to protect her reputation from the disdain she is sure would be her lot if her colleagues knew she has been writing potboilers. In the wilderness, she is confident that she can write a novel worthy of respect. Asked by his worried sister-in-law, Holly, to check on her college friend, Cole Taggert assumes her friend is an over educated, naive, idiot to head into the wilderness. Cole has used his ability with a gun to keep the peace, attempting to escape the reputation of his outlaw family. He isn’t helped by the dime novels that have become so popular with a Taggert, outlaw hero. Worst, his own family like the books. If he can just find that Will Tremaine, he’ll give him a lesson in using other-people’s name. When Cole arrives at Willy’s rented cabin, he sees her swimming in the lake. Her life isn’t the only one about to get redirected. Sometimes when destiny calls, we don’t hear it; but we can’t avoid the path it sets us on. For Willy, it will involve unexpected action, adopting strays (man and beast), physical attraction to a man and a land– plus a journal that reveals dangerous secrets. Love must find a way when someone with evil intent wants to end any chance for a happily ever after. Originally released as ‘Bound for the Hills’. 111,200 words.

A simple, “May I help you, Ma’am” can change a man’s life forever.
She came to Tucson to find her daughter. Christmas and an old outlaw are going to give her a lot more than she expected.
1905– Frederica Windsor steps off the train in Tucson, Arizona and enters a world, unlike any she’d ever known—where the Old West has yet to be tamed. She has come to find why her daughter mysteriously left Boston. She does not expect she is about to launch herself into an adventure with a man who seems to have come from the pages of one of the dime novels she’s been reading. Jeremiah Taggert finds this Bostonian lady temptingly beautiful but has no intention of taking it further. He had lived a reckless, outlaw life before recognizing that world was gone forever, and those who denied it were going to be strung up, shot or in a prison cell. With his three sons settled in Tucson, he wants to be close enough to help in their lives, as a way to make up for the years he’d not been much of a father. Together Jeremiah and Frederica are about to find something they felt had passed them by. The problem will be surviving an enemy with a long reach. Leaving Tucson and heading south toward the border and the Circle O ranch, the flavor and beauty of the desert become part of their story as it takes them to a family Christmas, with danger on its way. Novella. No sex Originally released as Sonoran Christmas and Frederica’s Heart until it found its most fitting title– Frederica’s Outlaw.
