For twenty-one years, Rose Darnell’s family dedicated their lives to the Anathema MC. For twenty-one years, she’s searched for a way out.
Bound to a world of bloodied knuckles and drug money, Rose believes her musical talent will rescue her from an abusive father and overbearing brothers. A chance audition and promising gig would free Rose from the outlaw 1%, but her brothers won’t let her escape the club’s shadow.
A rival chapter threatens Rose, and only Anathema’s president, Thorne Radek, can protect her.
A traitor lurks within Anathema’s brotherhood, and Thorne will burn the world to scorch the rat. When an innocent diva with baby-bunny eyes and dark secrets needs his help, Thorne offers his protection and is rewarded with the ultimate bait. He may be the only man to distract Rose from her music, but helping him find the traitor will damn more than the club.
It will tear her family apart.
“I might be able to keep you alive long enough to get some use out of you.”
He backed away, and I sucked in a relieved breath. The air caught in my lungs and I lost myself within Thorne’s wild scent.
He was serious. Absolutely serious. Not only did he think I was in danger, he thought he would protect me from it. He offered to save me from the demons lurking in the shadows.
And I believed him.
He trapped me within the heart of Pixie. In the very lair of the beast, tucked inside the darkest corners and under the gaze of the dangerous man balancing loyalty, anarchy, and violence. No one dared challenge Pixie, not even during the worst battles with Exorcist.
His gaze seared through me, trailing heat everywhere it looked. I couldn’t speak. My throat burned over my questions. He liked that. Reducing me to silence. Stealing my song. Proving him right and me wrong and savoring all the confusion in its wake.
The victorious smile suited him. Predatory. An amused crack in the mask of hardened rage. He didn’t offer it with kindness. He transformed a vulnerable quirk into a hostile threat, and, despite the darkness hardening his expression, even the cruelest of smiles only enhanced his features. It was a look that fractured pavement and ricocheted a bullet, and the unwanted heat burning low in my belly had no defense.
My pulse quickened. The halo of understanding cracked, and what should have blessed me in sweet offering instead tormented me with profane truth.
I feared Thorne.
But so did everyone else.
And that made him my greatest ally.
Lana Grayson On Criminals As Heroes
Romance seems to be getting darker and darker, and the male protagonists? Harder, arrogant, and more dangerous than ever before.
And I love it!
Let’s be honest. I work an eight-to-four job during the day, and park my butt on the couch at night to write. That doesn’t leave a lot of time to get into trouble…unless you count forgetting to switch over the laundry. My most recent brush with the law? The time I drove around for a day without the new registration sticker on my license plate.
So, I’m not the wildest girl out there. But when I’m reading? Give me the 1% bikers and made men, the criminal masterminds and the MMA fighters, and don’t forget the sinister and devilish billionaires with dungeons in their basement and helipads on their roof.
These are men who live outside the norms of society. The alpha males who not only seize life—they conquer it with a flash of a blade or the curl of their fist. They’re ruthless and brutal, pulsing with masculine energy, and they want nothing more than to dominate, punish, and reveal their desires to those wide-eyed heroines trapped in their web.
These “heroes” are the men our mothers warned us about, the stereotypes Tumblr posts about, and the featured criminals on the FBI Most Wanted list.
So why do we love them so much?
I think it’s just a combination of the danger and the unknown. Growing up, we yearned for Prince Charming to kiss us awake. Gallant and brave and perfect.
But where’s the passion in perfection? It’s the flaws, the danger, the darkness that offer the most excitement and danger and hope. Redeeming the unredeemable, and loving the unlovable. Whether it’s Christian Grey or Jethro Hawk, the criminals, bad boys, and dangerous men are the ones who make a book fun, thrilling, and super sexy.
Who is your favorite bad boy?
