Rebel Wayfarers MC. Having forever been a stranger to love, he was stunned when
it beckoned to him from a darkened room in faraway Oz. The route to hold the
woman of his dreams might be turbulent, but now that he’s found her, he’s
determined to keep her…no matter the cost.
Douglas Tatum was a decorated police officer and considered himself a community
servant loyal to the shield … back before he lost the faith. Betrayed by a man
he considered a brother, he cut all ties with his past existence, drifting
until he found a home with the Rebel Wayfarers MC, and their president, Mason.
With renewed purpose, Gypsy, as he’s now known, threw himself into building a
new life, earning his way into a trusted position in the club.
Dispatched overseas to help fulfill a club debt, Gypsy didn’t expect to find
his destiny under an unfamiliar canopy of stars. It took just a single
trembling glance for the dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty to own his heart.

days of living moment to moment, in darkness and pain, she had given up hope of

fearless for the first time she could remember.
Now fate has thrown them another curve, and they’ll have to partner with an
unlikely crew to help save another girl. In the series timeline, this story

Baxter?” Gypsy shook his head in counterfeit distress, pushing to his feet from
the low couch. Everything about the room screamed Baxter’s need to put himself
in a superior position, and that only echoed the self-important details about
the kidnapper’s compound far in the country. His men were strolling the grounds
with visible weapons, but Gypsy could read the men’s unease with having so much
firepower. If it came down to a fight, they wouldn’t be anything near a match
for the Hawks. Now he had to talk Baxter into bringing him the girl so he could
communicate the plan. Stoke and Talon both swore she had a steady head on her
shoulders, and they were confident if he could tell her what was going down,
she’d find a way to help. Fuck, I hope they’re right.

known about the camera, but it was validation for Myron’s info. The Hawks were
able to hear everything he did, thanks to some tech the Hawks’ member Beast had
handed over. They’d claimed it was undetectable, and so far, they’d been proven

filth. He didn’t know if he’d ever had to fight such a strong an urge to kill a
man. Here sat a wealthy beast, someone who appeared to be any businessman you’d
meet on the street, but his trade was flesh. And not willing flesh, either.

at the forced proximity to one of her jailers. Clearly, the man had put his
hands on her in a damaging way, and Gypsy casually marked him for death. Her
face was bruised and scabbed, and she carried a hell of a scar there that
thankfully appeared to predate her abduction. She looked at Gypsy and her chin
lifted even as her eyes blinked rapidly, forcing back tears. A fighter, just
like her father had said.

Hawks knew he had her within reach, they’d begin executing the plan for
extraction, and he didn’t have long to prep her. For an instant, he wasn’t
certain his words had registered, but when he pulled back, making another crass
remark to keep the illusion of the callous high-dollar purchase going, in her
eyes was a glint that told him she wasn’t done fighting. Good girl.
