He caught sight of something on her palm and grabbed her wrist, bending her arm. Amongst the words Columbia, Lewis, Puyallup, and Nisqually Rivers, he read his name.
Chief, written in blue ink.
He rubbed his thumb over her palm and watched her fingers curl. "Last I knew, there was no river named Chief," he whispered.
She laughed softly, and her eyes lightened. His chest warmed. Along with her looks, her personality had changed. Her giggles more a seductive breathy caress that got his attention. Her blush highlighted her cheeks, drawing attention to her full bottom lip that was more times than not clamped between her teeth.
"Why did you write my name on your hand?" He let go of her.
She shrugged and propped her chin on her hand. "I write your name on everything."
"Like what?"
"My folders, my backpack, and stuff." A little line creased the area between her brows. "If I ever end up away from Tacoma, other people will know who I belong to and help me get back to you."
Not Karla or Brikken or an address, only his name. He swallowed hard. Her fear of waking up somewhere else, away from everyone she knew, caused anxiety for her. He'd known that since he'd removed her from the apartment years ago.
"If I ever lost you, I'd find you, bug. There's nowhere that you could go that I wouldn't get you back." He lowered his upper body to the grass and looked up at the tree above him. "You're mine, and I keep what's mine."

8 years or so ago, I met a lady at a signing in Portland, who belonged to a book club. She wasn't there to meet me. In fact, her book club only read women's fiction, not romance. I remember we bonded over our dislike for public restrooms, and one thing led to another and I told her I'd send some paperback books her way. A few months later, she contacted me and asked if there was a way I could speak with her club about the book. They actually read a romance! We ended up having a chat...I have a by-reservation-only chat room on my website. That was the start of a wonderful relationship with the six ladies in the Milwaukie Book Club. I send them arc paperbacks (no digital readers in this group) and afterward, we chat.

Last week, we chatted about Chief.

Title: Chief
Series: A Brikken Motorcycle Club Saga
Release Date: March 1, 2018
Goodreads: http://bit.ly/2BLgItP


A deadly mistake in an otherwise routine crime for Brikken Motorcycle Club puts an eight-year-old girl in front of Chief.

Just why Chief steps up to become Johanna's guardian escapes his reasoning, nor has he wasted time trying to find an excuse beyond protecting a child's innocence from the club's criminal activities. He only knows that when he looks down into her sweet, innocent face full of curiosity instead of fear, she moves him. Her eyes are more expressive, her personality more addictive, than anything he's ever experienced.

Johanna fills a void inside of him in a way that being president of Brikken, the son of Rollo, the leader of hundreds of the roughest men, fails to satisfy.

And so, he plants Johanna in his life. He provides and gives, and makes her feel special. She isn't only his taste of freedom from the hard life he lives, but his spring, summer, fall, winter. She becomes his breath of fresh air in a world where betrayal, enemies, and a knife in the back can happen at any moment.

Through building Brikken Motorcycle Club and continuing his father's legacy, Chief deals with heartache, incarceration, secrets. Determined not to repeat his father's mistakes, he creates and manipulates the world around him, including those he permits into his life.

He does everything for Brikken.
For Rollo.
For his sons— Jett, Olin, and Thorn.
For Johanna, the child, the woman, who makes it all possible.

Johanna's earliest memories center around a big man who picks her up, changes her life, and the way his beard tickles her skin. At a young age, she learned there are two kinds of people in the world. Those who love forever and those who love—or maybe can't love—and leave. Her mom left her with strangers. Nene sent her away. Karla would eventually push her away. But, from the moment Chief walks into Johanna's life, he promises to stay. No one has given her the comfort, security, and pleasure that she fearfully needs, until Chief.

He gives her everything.

Through the tribulations of her childhood, the awakening of her womanhood, and a new world filled with bikers, she learns to survive on promises, trust, and the love of one man, through the biggest struggles of her life.
