THE CLUBHOUSE IS buzzing with life tonight. Every member and
their ol’ lady came out for the cage fight. No other MC members are allowed on
a night like this. It’s in-house and exclusive. Keeps the outcome private and
the bruised egos of the losers contained. I plan on bruising more than their
egos. I want them carried out on a fucking stretcher.
These men aren’t my brothers. They don’t know loyalty,
honor, or respect the patch and the brotherhood it stands for. They’re weak
men. Men who get off on torturing and raping a woman who couldn’t defend
herself against them. I don’t see them as equals. I’ll never see them as
Through the church room is another set of double doors. This
is where we have our fight cage and private bar. Wooden benches line two walls,
the cage taking up the other two. Between the benches and the fight cage are
high top and low top tables with bar stools and chairs. Every seat is filled
and the liquor is pouring heavily. A few bucks make their rounds on who’s going
to win the fight. It’s fun play for my brothers, but for me, tonight is about
so much more.
Lighting dim, it makes the blood stains on the cage mat
harder to see, but it’s there as a lingering memory of previous fights. Fights
I’ve been a part of. Blood I’ve contributed myself. You don’t last in the
Serpents as long as I have without shedding some.
Across the cage, between the bars, I can see Drake and Levi
getting themselves worked up for the fight. A slap to the face, some words for
courage, a shot glass thrown back. Next to me are Mercy, John, Tex and RJ, some
of my closest brothers. Mercy slaps my bare back and hands me a shot.
“Fuck ‘em up.”
With the shot thrown back, I bob my head. Shirt in my hands,
I pull it over my head and toss it on a chair. Reaching into my pocket, I
retrieve the brass knuckles I brought. That’s an advantage with the cage
fights—there are no rules.
Christian opens the cage door and dips his head, indicating
Drake and Levi need to enter. Shirts off and in their jeans, they go into the
cage, bouncing on the tips of their feet. They’re wired and ready, probably
high on coke too. Another advantage for me. With intent steps, I flex my
muscles and give Christian a hard stare as I enter the cage.
The door locks behind us and I measure my opponents. Levi is
tall and gangly, has speed, but will easily be put off balance. Drake has
muscles, a solid core, slightly shorter than I am, but he always steps before
he punches. It’s been engrained in me to study the way every man I know fights,
especially the ones closest to you.
Bloodshot eyes and their hyper energy are telltale signs
they’re high. The corner of my mouth raises when the circling starts. They’ll
come at me together at first, in hopes to overpower me, wear me down. Then once
I’m tired, they’ll split up and go for individual attacks to give themselves
breaks and ensure I remain exhausted. They’re dumb fucks if they think the
fight will last that long.
They both charge and I slam into Levi. Hand to his throat, I
ram him into the cage bars, knocking the wind out of him. Grip tight on his
throat, I bring the brass knuckles down on his face. Blood spurts from his
nose, then again from his busted lips.
“Fuuuck!” the word roars from my chest.
The cold steal slices across the lower left side of my back.
Enraged, I turn on Drake and see him holding the bloody switchblade.
If blood is what they want, blood is what I’ll give them.
Fast hand to his wrist, I wrap my elbow around his arm and
kick his leg out from under him. The blade drops and I flip him over slamming
him to the ground. No hesitation, I snatch the blade and whip it across his
cheek. Blood pours from the thin, neat cut. Flicking the blade into my other
hand, I nail it into his thigh.
With the painkiller effects of the coke running through his
system, he bellows from the wound, but still has a lot of fight. Seeing Levi
come at me with a set of spiked knuckles, I get one brass-knuckled punch to
Drake’s face before I duck and roll, dodging the swing of Levi’s arm.
Quick on my feet, I feel the warmth of my own blood running
down my skin on the inside of my jeans. That’s gonna need stitches. I need to
move fast before I lose too much blood. Drake pulls the blade from his thigh
and limps to his feet, holding the bars of the cage.
Circling one another, the crowd is alive with energy, screaming
and hollering inaudible words at us. They’re hungry for more.
Waving my fingers, I encourage their attack. Levi’s got good
legs, so he comes at me first. With an uppercut of the brass knuckles, he lands
on his back. One hard boot to his face and he’s lights out.
Drake circles me, blade in hand. With a fast swing, he
grazes my arm, slicing it enough to make me bleed, but not enough to make me
give a fuck. The fresh scent of copper fills my nostrils. Crimson red covers
Drake’s face and stains his jeans. Watching his feet, he lunges again, and I
grab his hand, lock onto it, turn inside his arm and elbow his face, breaking
his nose. Pulling his hand backward, the blade drops. With one swift turn, I
put brass to bone, knocking him on his ass.
I only stop when I see his eyelids. He’s out cold, and I
heave a breath, controlling my fury before I murder him here in front of
everyone. Rising to my feet, I pull the brass knuckles from my bloodied hand.
The cage door opens for me, and I step out to hoots, hollers, pats on the back,
and shots shoved into my hands. I down two for the pain.
All the faces are an adrenaline pumping blur until I see
her—my Sparrow. Running to me, I enfold her in my arms, kissing her hard and

“Why am I here?” I ask, wanting to get this over
Cole takes the bottle from my hand and brings it
to his lips, taking a big gulp. His Adam’s apple working as he swallows.
I cross my arms over my chest, trying to look
unaffected. But I’m having trouble breathing.
“We’ve been thinking …” he says, rubbing his chin.
“We want you to be a part of our group,” Deke
finishes his sentence.
I look among the five of them and start laughing
nervously. “You’re joking, right?”
“Not one bit,” Deke says, shaking his head.
“No thanks,” I say and turn to the door. I twist
the handle and start to pull it open, but a hand slaps on the door above my
head, holding it shut.
I jump back to look at Cole. He leans against it
casually, getting comfortable and blocking my only exit. “It wasn’t an offer,
My eyes narrow on him. “What makes you think I
want anything to do with you guys?”
“Deke,” Cole says, lifting the bottle to his lips
I spin around to see Deke step up to us, his phone
in his hand facing Cole and me. A video plays, and it’s of me driving Cole’s
car away from the warehouse after he stole the red car.
“How did you get that?” I demand.
He just chuckles, placing the phone in his pocket.
“I don’t kiss and tell, baby.”
My eyes narrow on him calling me baby. I turn back to face Cole. “You’re
blackmailing me. Again.”
He shrugs carelessly. “You can call it whatever
you want.”
“I’m calling it what it is,” I snap. “You know
damn well that I had no idea what you had planned.”
He pushes off the wall and leans down, his face
inches from mine. I can smell the cinnamon on his lips and can’t help the
shudder that runs through me. “I dare you to prove it.”
“You son of a—”
“In order to join,” Deke interrupts me, “you have
to pass a test.” He crosses his arms over his broad chest.
“I’m not interested …”
“Initiation,” he corrects himself.
“I don’t want to be involved with whatever
fucked-up shit you guys are in.” How many
different ways do I have to say it?
“Let her out,” Kellan says, but no one listens to
Deke continues. “You have to fuck one of us while
we all watch.”
My heart starts to pound at his words. And my eyes
widen when he takes a step toward me.
This is a joke. It has to be.
He arches a brow in challenge when I just stand
there staring at him. “You want me, baby? I’m ready.” He licks his lips as his
blue eyes settle on my legs. Then he reaches down to his jeans and unbuttons
My eyes immediately shoot to Cole.
His eyes hold their usual anger as they glare down
at me, but a slow, devious smile spreads across his face, and the guys start
laughing. “Well, there’s your answer, man,” one of them calls out from behind
My jaw tightens. “I don’t want to …”
“Leave us,” Cole orders, interrupting me. And like
the trained sheep they are, they all walk out. I can still hear their laughter
as they walk down the hall, the door slowly shutting behind them.
I plop down on one of the lounge chairs, trying to
slow my racing heart. “You can’t force my hand, Cole. Not with this.”
He walks over to where I sit. Reaching out, he
runs his busted knuckles along my cheek. I swat his hand away, afraid of what
will come out of my mouth if he touches me.
His hand grips my hair and yanks me to stand. I
cry out as he shoves my back
against the closed door. He towers over me,
pushing his body into mine. I’m panting while he holds me still. He dips his
head to whisper in my ear. “Are you a virgin, Austin?”
“No,” I growl. My hands come up to push him off
me, but he grabs them and pins them above my head. I whimper, and my thighs
“That’s a shame.” He sighs, and his breath skims
across my skin making me shudder. “I like to take pretty, innocent things and
destroy them.”
“You’re sick,” I say, panting.
He chuckles but doesn’t deny it. “But that doesn’t
make you want me any less. I saw the way you stared at me in the car. The way
you licked your lips when I thought about kissing you. The way you whispered my
name. How you stared at me when I got out of the pool. And let’s not forget the
way you allowed me to touch you last night. Tell me, were you disappointed when
I didn’t throw you on the bed and fuck you right then?” I moan. “I bet you’re
wet right now.”
“Cole,” I growl his name, not wanting him to see
how right he is.
But he ignores my warning. “You wore red for me
again, sweetheart. You wanted my attention, and you got it. Now what are you
gonna do with it?”

Title: Tantrum
A Kenshaw Ranch Novel
Author: Piper Frost
Genre: Western Romance
Release Date: April 27, 2018



My luck’s never been the best when it comes to anything
other than women. Hell, even women deal me a bad hand every now and then. Like
the time I slept with my boss’s wife. That was my last day of employment in Sin

I’m Chase Haring and if you ask my friends they’ll tell you
I don’t have the best track record. 
Now that I’m back, I’m taking it in stride. I’ve got my
tattoo shop. I’ve got the bar. And I’ve had damn near any woman I wanted in
this small town. That means I want out of here for good. 
When a smiling redhead walks into the bar, I know I
definitely haven’t had her.
This town doesn’t create people like her. 
One sexy night in a haunted house is all it takes. And now
we’re inseparable and thoughts of leaving for good become less
She’s what I need in my life.  
Positive. Refreshing.
Interest moves to lust and straight to love before anyone
expects it. Before I even get to know any layer but the happy-go-lucky girl she
lets everyone see. She’s refusing to let the negative world get to her. She’s
also refusing to forget the saying ‘everything happens for a reason’. That’s
why when I walk away, she watches me go without a blink of an eye.  
I’m good at a tantrum, especially when you rip up my heart
like only she’s capable of doing. I’m bad at figuring out how to move on,
especially when it’s Kaydence I have to move on from.

Author Bio
Thelma and Louise. Boris and Natasha. H.Q. Frost and M. Piper. When these
two teamed up to form Piper Frost, they never knew how amazing it would be
working together to create wonderful masterpieces of joy, tears, humor, and
heartbreak. Piper’s favorite part about Frost? The fact that she puts up with
her. Period. Also the fact that she makes her writing better every damn time.
She’s friggin’ brilliant. Frosts favorite thing about Piper? Frost loves the
fact that when they get together to create it becomes a tornado of brilliance
that Frost couldn’t be more grateful to be caught up in with Piper. Piper’s
artistic abilities and mad skills make Frost so proud to be associated with her
(it makes her look good too). Also if Piper didn’t adult for the both of them,
not much would get done.

What they both know as true, however, is that creating babies together
has been the best adventure either of them has ever been on.

Companion to The Doctor and the Addict

Benen Trelayne has worked hard to make Assistant Detective by age 27, but protecting the city of Jewylle on Ilben is no easy job. When Benen removes a mysterious puzzle box from a murder scene, he isn’t expecting to have to deal with anything more than cracking the case.

But while attempting to stop a robbery, the curious box is activated, and Benen’s stuck trying to figure his way out of a puzzle spell with only a thief who calls himself Gus for help. Benen is sure Gus knows more about the murder than he’s saying, but can’t arrest him unless they can work together enough to escape.


“This isn’t something you and I can solve stuck in a magical corridor with no exits,” said Benen, peeling himself off the wall and moving toward Gus, who eyed him.

“The magic does not actually care whether we solve the murder, it cares whether we get along. I, however, care if it means I’ll be locked up on exiting.”

“I can’t make promises,” said Benen.

“Of course you can.”

“You’re nobody at the moment. I don’t even have a family name I can wave at Thea. You need influence to get out of shit like what I caught you doing. Don’t — I like the way you scowl.”

Narrated By: Charlie David

From EPIC Award winning author and multiple Lambda Finalist L.A. Witt comes the re-release of three hot contemporary novellas — Getting off the Ground, Infinity Pools, and On The List.

After being stood up at the altar, compulsive over-planner Elliott Chandler decides to turn his honeymoon on Oahu into a vacation for one. Fate puts a hitch in his plans, however, when the airport is snowed in and his flight is delayed.

In the terminal, the jilted groom catches the eye of another stranded traveler: the laidback and very sexy Derek Windsor. Derek breaks the ice and strikes up a conversation, and as the temperature drops outside, the heat between them rises. Pity they’re both going to different islands, but if their flight doesn’t get off the ground fast, Mr. Calm-and-Cool may just tempt Mr. Play-It-Safe into doing something reckless.

And that plane isn’t going anywhere any time soon…

April 26 – Queerly Reads, OMG Reads

And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut…
