Reaper’s Fire: Exclusive Excerpt

Joanna Wylde

Joanna Wylde's Reaper's Fire

The club comes first.

I’ve lived by those words my whole life—assumed I’d die by them, too, and I never had a problem with that. My Reaper brothers took my back and I took theirs and it was enough. Then I met her. Tinker Garrett. She’s beautiful, she’s loyal, and she works so damned hard it scares me sometimes . . . She deserves a good man—one better than me. I can’t take her yet because the club still needs me. There’s another woman, another job, another fight just ahead.

Now she’ll learn I’ve been lying to her all along. None of it’s real. Not my name, not my job, not even the clothes I wear. She thinks I’m nice. She pretends we’re just friends, that I’ve still got a soul . . . Mine’s been dead for years. Now I’m on fire for this woman, and a man can only burn for so long before he destroys everything around him.

I’m coming for you, Tinker.

Get a sneak peek at Joanna Wylde's Reaper's Fire (available August 9, 2016) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

“Gonna be a long night,” I told Reese “Picnic” Hayes through the phone.

I’d been checking in with my club’s president at least once a day, on the theory that if I didn’t call, he might send someone to save me. Now I was leaning against the side of the diner where I’d parked my bike before going in for lunch. I’d walked over to check out Tinker’s store afterward on a whim. Now I had a job and a cover. Make that a job, a cover, and balls bluer than a Smurf in the dead of winter.

Fact or Fiction: Women in Motorcycle Clubs

Reaper's Legacy by Joanna WyldeToday we're pleased to welcome author Joanna Wylde to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Joanna's newest release, Reaper's Legacy, is about a woman whose only way to protect her young son is to live with an outlaw biker gang. Joanna is here today to discuss the true role of women in motorcycle clubs. Thanks, Joanna!

Is it real?

I think that’s the first thing that readers wonder when they pick up a motorcycle club (MC) romance, and it’s a good question. MC culture is fascinating, terrifying and utterly foreign to the average reader—and right now it seems to be everywhere we look.

The recent boom in MC romances was probably sparked by the success of Sons of Anarchy, a show that follows the exploits of a fictional club in California. I know that’s how my interest started.

The first time I watched the show, I thought it was ridiculous. Motorcycle clubs are gangs—why on earth would they have officers or vote? Seriously—an official gang secretary? That was counter to everything I believed about gangs, and as a former journalist, I just couldn’t let it go. I had to start researching.
