A new city. A new start.
That’s what I told myself when I moved to New Orleans. With my baby girl in college, this single mama demolished the empty nest and started fresh.
Then I met Raze. A silver fox with a voice like thunder and dangerously dark eyes.
He gave me shelter in the middle of a hurricane, but fate has a strange way of throwing people together and one look in his eyes tells me…
Maybe I’m meant to save him.
Tonight of all nights, she had to crack her head on my doorstep.
I built my clan with my own blood, sweat, and tears. I gave us a tattoo shop, Black Claw Ink. Made us a family. And then I smashed it all to pieces with one careless mistake. My pride is going to cost me my life.
I made my peace with that. Until she showed up. Now her neck is on the line too.
My clan is coming for me. Well, they can have me. But I’ll be damned if I let them touch a hair on her precious head.
Maxine is mine. And I’ll protect her hell or high water.
Even if that water sure is getting high…
