He can’t change the scars on her body…
but fate will give him a second chance to mend the scars he put on her heart.

Riley Sullivan and the Ex Ops Team are headed to Miami undercover… as bikers. Following up a lead, the men will perform their investigation acting as members of the Regulators Motorcycle Club with the club’s permission. Surrounded by hardcore bikers and investigating missing strippers, Riley finds the last person he ever expected to see again—his ex-wife.

Kara Sullivan left the man she loved after a tragic accident cost them their unborn son. After years of therapy, she’s come to grips with the loss and has re-emerged from the pain a brand new person. That doesn’t mean she’s ready to face the man who inadvertently broke her heart, and who she’s hurt in return.

Riley has never stopped loving her and he never will. He’s ready to fix their marriage and move on with their lives, however Kara’s reluctance to renew their relationship isn’t their only problem. Danger lurks just around the corner… and there’s a chance she could disappear permanently.



Scanning over the building, I watched as a leggy, bottle blonde walked out of the alley in an outfit so tiny it should have been illegal. Her large, fake breasts were close to popping out of the thinly stretched top, and I doubted she’d be able to bend forward, three inches without flashing the whole world her ass. The logical part of my brain informed me that she was one hot woman, the perfect candidate to end the self-imposed celibacy I’d put myself through these last couple of months. My less than enthusiastic dick told me to forget about it. Nothing was happening down there, as usual.

After eight years, you’d think I’d be a bit more enthusiastic about getting off. Unfortunately, unless liquor was involved, it was almost impossible to get hard for a woman. That didn’t even count how the emotional side of me would feel after another attempted hook up with someone who wasn’t the woman I really wanted underneath me. Sometimes, tying your heart and soul to one person seriously fucking sucked.

The leggy blonde walked through the large double doors in the front of After Midnight that were constantly closed, as per protocol. Bouncers were stationed both on the inside and outside of those doors. And although there were dozens of large windows dotting both floors of the tall building, no one would be able to see inside because they were all mirror tinted. It allowed patrons on the inside of the club to see out; however, allowing those inside the ultimate privacy because no one on the outside of the club would be able to see in. Dec liked to call them “wdws” or “Wife Detector Windows.” He’d informed me they were the ultimate warning system for any miserable, married bastard to use in case the old ball in chain tried to sneak up on him. My opinion from that little lesson was that my brother spent entirely too much time in strip clubs.

A little bit of heaven is about to meet a whole lot of hell.
