The hits just keep on coming for Tessie Marie Harlow. She has never had an easy life. Her mom disabled, her dad long gone, and a single mom raising a rambunctious little boy, that's her world.
Her childhood aspirations to be a nurse disappeared after a college spring fling both blessed and burdened her with a baby boy. Dropping out of school, she returns to her hometown and begins to settle in. Getting the only job she can as a bartender, she spends her days caring for her son and nights serving the Hellions Motorcycle Club and their affiliates.
Andy "Shooter" Jenkins has always been around. Too wrapped up with raising Rex, Tessie has never really noticed him before. He has never been loud or known to have the girls hanging all over him. He is a mystery. A chance encounter brings him to her rescue not once but twice.
The members of the Desert Ghosts Motorcycle Club are in town and bring their own brand of chaos right to Tessie's door. Forced into her day-to-day life, Shooter is doing everything he can to shelter and protect her as lines are crossed and a war between two clubs begins.
Contains mature themes.
