THE WILDE ONE is the second novel in the spicy contemporary romance series about four sexy brothers, their small-town bar and their local country band. Each novel in the OLD TOWN COUNTRY ROMANCE series can be read as a STAND ALONE NOVEL or as part of the SERIES.


Tucker Wilde joined the United States Army right out of high school and was injured in Iraq. But more than just his leg was shattered in the Middle East. The war also crushed his spirit and damaged his soul. When a strange couple arrives at his family’s bar, Haymakers, Tucker can see signs of mental and emotional abuse and is immediately drawn to the lovely but fragile girl seated at his bar.

Gracie Parker has been a victim of abuse her entire life. When her boyfriend, Dex, beats her in the parking lot of Haymakers and abandons her, it’s almost too much for the nineteen-year-old to bear. That is until Tucker appears like a warrior knight from the darkness to save her.

Tucker and Gracie are two broken people who are immediately drawn together. But their relationship and even their very lives are threatened by Dex who will stop at nothing to get Gracie back.

If you like your trucks loud, your beer cold and your men'll love THE WILDE ONE.

This book is full of four, hot and sexy brothers. They are Connor, Jake, Tucker and the youngest being Hunter. The book features all of the brothers, although it focuses more on Tucker. Tucker is ex Army and was wounded by an explosive while serving in Afghanistan. He has a hard time dealing with his leg. He thinks that no one could bear to see how mangled it is, even his brothers. No one has seen his leg because he feels ashamed of it.

The brothers own a bar in town called the Haymakers and the also play in a band, called The Wilde Riders. Jake is a ladies man...more like a player, Connor is engaged and the other two don't have anyone to call theirs. Tucker does want a girlfriend, but he knows that she will run screaming for the hills as soon as she sees his leg. Damn leg.

One night, a man walks in with a thin woman who appears to be terrified of him. He orders himself a burger and a beer and he orders her a salad and water. Tucker notices how fearful she is to eat, or even look up. She's shaking and she's not eating. The man says his name is Dex and she is Gracie. She looks dirty. Tucker notices that something is off, it's just not right. Therefore, he stands up for Gracie and the man ends up dragging her out of the bar. Tucker can't shake the feeling that she needs protection. He walks outside and notices that Dex is beating Gracie by the dumpster. Once Dex notices Tucker, he takes off on his motorcycle, spitting gravel all over her.

Being the good, southern man that he is, Tucker offers his hand for support and decides right then and there that Dex will NEVER hurt Gracie again. 

That is all I can say, or else I will completely ruin the story for you. If you like a feel good romance, pick up your copy of The Wilde One today. This is actually the second book in the series, although it can also be read as a stand alone. Great story Savannah Young ... great story. Please enjoy and happy reading!


It’s a weeknight and the bar is almost deserted except for a few of the regulars. That’s why I’m surprised when I see a couple I don’t recognize walk in and look around. The guy’s wearing all leather and carrying two helmets, so he’s obviously a biker. He looks about my height, six feet two inches and he’s big. The girl looks tiny standing next to him. She’s the definition of the word waif. She looks like a strong wind could pick her up and blow her away. Not a good thing in Old Town where it’s windy most of the time.
The most interesting thing about her, though, is her coloring. I’ve never seen someone so fair in my life. I’m the only blond in my family but I’m not even close to this girl. Her long hair is so light it’s practically white. And her skin is the color of milk. She looks like a princess who just stepped out of a fairytale, as corny as that sounds.

I can’t help but notice that she doesn’t look like she wants to be here. Or maybe she doesn’t want to be with the guy. It’s hard to tell. But she doesn’t look happy. If anything, she looks scared.
As the couple steps closer to the bar, I can see the girl is shaking. I’m not sure whether she’s shaking because she’s scared, or because it’s January and it’s freezing outside and she’s wearing a tiny spring jacket that barely fits. It almost looks like a jacket for a kid it’s so small on her. Not that she’s much bigger than a kid herself.

Romance novelist Savannah Young grew up in rural northwest New Jersey in a place very similar to the fictional Old Town, which is featured in her books. When she's not at her computer creating spicy stories, Savannah is traveling to exotic locales or spending time with her husband and their bloodhounds.
