Lady Guardians Spotlight- Black Money (Mystic Belles) by Taisha Demay

Check out Taisha Demay’s story from the Lady Guardians’ serial, which is now available.

Losing her parents was hard, even for a tough biker chick like Ah-lay-yay Forster. It’s a double shock when she learns that they’ve bequeathed half their estate to her sworn enemy Kavan Black. Riding as a road captain for the Lady Guardians motorcycle club, she can temporarily forget her dilemma. But sooner or later she knows she’ll have to fight the entrepreneur to get what’s rightfully hers. 

Kavan is on Cloud Nine. He’s hit the jackpot by inheriting half the Forster’s substantial estate. True to his unsavory reputation, the mogul is ready to use every dirty trick in the book, including seduction to get Ah-lay-yay to sell her portion to him. But when a blizzard strands them in a remote mountain cabin, their rivalry morphs into a fierce passion. Kavan begins to have second thoughts about deceiving his new lover. To win her trust, he must convince Ah-lay-yay that they are better together as partners than as adversaries.

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today is the day for The Ultimate Risk to be released. This is the last book in the October cohort for the Lady Guardians series.

This book is all about Raven, a young woman who is not afraid to try new things, but is also pained by issues from her past.

When she meets Ryan, she has to reevaluate everything in her life, from her vested hobby to the sacrifices she has made for herself and her family.

https://amzn.to/2xU2SFt

Here’s the synopsis for the story:

Raven Howard has always lived life on the edge. No matter what, she is always willing to try new things and just enjoy life. While her personal life is adventurous, she does have a balance with her professional life by being a kindergarten teacher. She loves kids and hopes to have some one day.

Despite her family’s disapproval, one of the things Raven loves to do is ride her Street Triple R on the weekends. It’s a great way for her to relax and just be on the open road for a few hours.

When her friend, Tess, mentioned that a new Lady Guardian chapter would be opening in Houston, she was all for becoming a member.  A past incident involving her brother threatens to rekindle memories that she nor her family want to relive. She is willing to move on, but it could destroy the tenuous relationship she has with her family. Is Raven willing to make the choice that is best for her, or will she bend to please her family?

Ryan Baxter is going through a lot while being a single father to his five-year-old daughter, Kendall. His wife passed away a year ago and he is still trying to pick up the pieces of his life. This young father is trying to be strong for Kendall, but sometimes his shattered heart and soul make him question whether he can survive the emotional storm of his wife’s death.

When he meets Kendall’s teacher, Raven, during a parent/teacher conference, Ryan is instantly smitten with her. That’s a feeling he hasn’t felt for anyone since his wife’s passing. As the two slowly connect, the attraction they have is undeniable, but also scary.

When Ryan finds out about Raven’s passion for fast bikes and the open road, he immediately disapproves, which is an issue for Raven. Although Raven discovers Ryan’s reason for his disapproval, a war of wills ensues. If Raven wouldn’t stop riding for her family, then she won’t for Ryan. Will her decisions drive away the man that she has fallen in love with?

Raven has a lot to deal with from all directions. Will she be able to keep everything under control, or will it all come crashing down around her?

Unplanned Love

 

Here’s an excerpt: 

It was a Thursday night and Quad was leaving the Stadium Sports Bar & Grill. He had just left his brothers whom he met up with for a around of drinks. As Quad walked to his car he noticed a woman trying to change her car tire. He walked toward her and tried his best not to frighten her as he walked slowly.
She pitched. “Oh, my word!”
She almost lost her balance, but Quad was able to catch her.
“Are you okay?” He asked with hit of concern in his voice.
She shook her head. “Yes, I’m okay. You just scared the hell out of me.”
He gave her a half smile. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you.”
“That’s okay.”
Quad looked around and saw that she had the jack out and one lug nut. He thought to himself she didn’t do too bad because it’s clear that she has an idea on how to change a tire. Probably more than most women knew how to.
“Okay, it’s looks like you started to change the tire already.”
“Yeah, but I’ve only been able to get one of those round things off. Also, I’m hot as hell.” She said softly, looking down at her nails.
Quad laughed. He agreed with her one hundred percent because it was close to ninety degrees tonight.
“I see that, however, it’s not bad at all. I’ll finish changing the tire for you.” He said reaching for the jack.
The woman placed her hand up. “Hold on, wait a minute! Before you start changing anything, what’s your name?”
The woman needed to know the basic facts about this very handsome man who was about to change her car tire. Where does he live, his occupation, his blood type, is he single or married? Then she thought maybe she should call her best friends Elle or Rashaun so she could keep them on the line.
“My bad, my name is Quad.” He said extending his right hand.
“Nice to meet you Quad, I’m MJ.” She said shaking his hand.
He held her hand for a moment. He felt something between them, but he couldn’t explain it. He was curious what MJ stood for.
“It’s nice to meet you too, MJ. If it makes you feel any better you can call someone while I change the tire. It shouldn’t take me more than twenty minutes if that long.”
He studied her face, realizing she looked familiar, but he wasn’t sure from where but that wasn’t important right now.
“Oh, that won’t be necessary. I’m a pretty good judge of character.” She said.
Quad stood about six feet tall, with a dark complexion. With both dark brown eyes and hair which was closely cropped to his scrap. MJ could also tell that he’s a member of a fraternity, but couldn’t tell which one because it was too dark to make out his ring.
He looked familiar to her as he favored Levi McKnight the attorney. Then again, she could be wrong because he could be his nephew or something because the McKnight family was sizable.
“Okay, I’m also a pretty good judge myself.” Quad said as he started to change the tire.
He could tell she just came from work by the way she was dressed. However, he wondered why she was out here changing her tire by herself. Didn’t she have a boyfriend or bother she could have called? Then again it wasn’t his business. He knew if he was her man it’s no way in hell she would be out here this time of night changing her own tire, especially in this heat.
MJ played with her phone while Quad finished changing her tire. She started to wonder what would have happened if Quad didn’t show up. MJ knew she would probably still be struggling to change it. For the life of her, her roadside assistance call wouldn’t go through, so she made a mental note to call and email them about it.
“All done, Miss MJ,” Quad said and placed the tire in the back trunk. He finally got a good look at her; first thing that came to his mind was that she was beautiful.
MJ stood about five feet-three-inches tall, had smooth mocha complexion, with hazel eyes, and golden brownish hair, which she wore in a bun. She had high cheekbones and dimples on both side of her cheeks.
“Thank you so much, Quad. I don’t know what I would have done without you,” she said.
“You’re most welcomed beautiful.” He said and helped her into her car.
“Thanks once again.”
“No big deal. I know you don’t know me from a can of paint, but I want you to message me once you get home. I would feel much better.” Quad said.
Honestly, he didn’t know what got into him; she could be married with three kids waiting for her at home.
Maya arched her eyebrow. “That’s not necessary, Quad. I’ll be fine, I’m a big girl.” She said as she hands him her cell phone. She knew he wasn’t going to take no for an answer. Beside she felt he was harmless; that’s what her gut was telling her.
“It’s necessary, MJ” He said as he put his number into her cell phone.
When their hands touched once again it felt electric. He held onto her hand for a few minutes before letting it go. Quad looked into her hazel eyes; it was like a spell of desire was unleashed because all he wanted to do was kiss her, but he fought it as quickly as possible.
“I’ll let you go now.”
“Thanks again Quad. I’ll make sure to massage you once I’m home.” She said with a smile.
“You’re most welcome.”
Quad waited until he could no longer see the taillight of her car before getting into his own. On the drive home, he kept looking at his cell phone to see if MJ had messaged him. It usually took him twenty–five minutes for him to get home, but he got there in twenty-minutes with great anticipation. Still no message from MJ. He wasn’t stressing if she didn’t messaged him.
***
MJ pulled into the drive way of her three-story home. She picked up her cell phone to look for Quad’s number to message him:
Once again thanks. I’m home safe and sound.
Just as Quad came out of the shower, he checked his phone. A sense of relief came through him when he saw a message from her.
You’re most welcome. I’m glad you’re home safe and sound. Good Night, MJ …

She knew he was trouble when he walked into her shop.
Being a mechanic and part of an all-female bike club means, Antoinette ‘Toni’ Keys is used to men looking at her and saying, “Hey pretty girl, you sure you can fix that engine?” Or, “Hey doll, you sure you can handle all that bike?” So, when an outlaw biker name Dirt steps into her shop and refuses to allow a female to work on his bike, she’s determined to show him she’s the best mechanic for the job.
What she doesn’t plan on, is the instant attraction she has for him. She’s not looking for love. She doesn’t have time for a tattooed bad boy and the trouble that follows him everywhere he goes. She has her own problems with a rival bike club. Yet, she’s finding it hard to resist his wicked smile and his sexy tattoos.

He knew he was in trouble the moment he laid eyes on her.
Dietrich Tate, aka Dirt, is a third generation Reaper. His club is the most important thing in his life. He’s loyal to his brothers. When one of them goes rogue with the club’s money, Dirt is the one chosen to hunt him down. Instead of finding his target, he finds a sexy brown-skinned mechanic with the prettiest smile he’s ever seen.
He knows his club wouldn’t approve of him seeing her. Yet, he can’t resist her. Spending time with her makes him forget his troubled past. However, it also brings trouble to her doorstep. Trouble she wants no part of. Trouble that puts her entire club and her family in danger. Trouble that makes her not want to be around him. Dirt vows to protect her from his vicious crew. Imagine his surprise when he learns she can be just as vicious as they are.
That only makes him want her more.
