Welcome to Northern Nevada. The scenery is idyllic, the people are friendly and three Motorcycle Clubs rule the tri-city area between Reno, Carson City, and Lake Tahoe with an iron fist. Gisela wasn’t introduced to the thug life, she was born into it. The daughter of an American gangster, her life has been carefully orchestrated with private education, a law degree and now a respectable law firm she co-founded with Kyra Hughes, her best friend. Life is good until her high school sweetheart walks through the door of Jackson & Hughes and decides to turn her world upside down. Cillian is not an average criminal, he was brought up in the Lucifer’s Saints MC and is now V.P. of a powerful criminal enterprise. He’s no stranger to mayhem yet only one woman has ever made him feel worthy of redemption. He’s a survivor and luck has always been on his side until he is arrested and charged with the murder of an undercover ATF agent. His complicated life becomes more than he can handle when he is forced to face the only woman who has ever turned him inside out. An unconventional love story, unfinished business between these two passionate people—physical, emotional and professional—will spark a fuse that will leave a path of death and destruction in its wake.


The more of this motorcycle club that I read about the more they seem to become real to me.  With the way that Selene Chardou writes her books about the Lucifer Saints MC you will become attached to her characters the way that it seems that she has.  You will find yourself wanting to follow more of them and wanting to keep up with what is happening within the MC directly as well as the two bands Scarlet Fever and Winters Rayne.

This book is about Cillian Cox reuniting with the love of his life Gisela Jackson.  These two lovers meet when they were just teen and due to factors that their parents chose to rule they were torn apart.  After years of paths crossing and many lovers an incident involving Cillian causes him to seek our Gisela for her legal services.  After some other issues are resolved you  follow the journey that these two finally get to take together.  Will they get to become the family that they have longed to be or will Cillian's trial for murder take him away from her again.  This time though they are adults and are willing to fight to keep each other and have the support of their friends and families.

I loved the way that Selene takes us back and forth and gives us a look into how they met. The things that lead up to their separation, and how life has kept them longing for the touch of the other.  When two souls find their mates, they will not accept anything less, and this is what she shows us in this story. I can not wait to see the next step in the future book of Cillian and Gisela's.


Now, I found myself in the same position with Cillian, and I couldn’t do it again. Not only because of Brianna but because I was in love with the fucking guy.
“Leave Brianna and we’ll pick up this conversation at another time. Until that happens…I don’t think I can do this.” My voice was small but firm.
He crawled over my body so he could face me. “Now you’re not playing fair. I told you I would leave her and I will. You can’t deny me—I won’t be able to do this without knowing you’re by my side.”
“And I will be when that Irish bitch is out of your life.” I gritted my teeth together. “You left me in a foreign country for her, and drop kicked my ass outta your life. Now, I’m supposed to drop everything because you give me a few empty promises after mind blowing sex? I want to believe you but we’ve got too damn much history between us, babe. I need to see some actions before I commit to anything.”
Cillian smiled wryly. “Always the fucking attorney. Fine, I’ll show you actions but you better keep up your end of the bargain.”
I turned over onto my side away from him. “Don’t worry about me. Unlike you, I don’t make promises I can’t keep.”
