Abstract:

Desperate to save her family from financial ruin, Edwina Moody accepts a precarious job, putting her in the path of an intimidating biker gang-and one member in particular, Diablo, with whom she strikes a bold bargainAfter Edwina Moody's father skips town, deserting his family and leaving behind massive debts, the task of escaping financial ruin falls to Edwina. Forced to abandon her dreams, she accepts the difficult job of tracking down the missing heir of the wealthy Holt family, armed only with a photo of Christopher Holt at fourteen and a tip that he's hanging out with a rough biker crowd. Edwina begins her search at Blackie's Bar, notorious for its dangerous clientele. She's a ripe, tempting target for the bikers, but luckily Diablo, the most intimidating one in the place, rescues her from an alarming altercation. Drawn to Edwina, Diablo takes her for an unforgettable ride on his motorcycle, during which she's confronted by his rippling muscles and threatening allure. The two strike a precarious bargain when Edwina implores him to help her find Holt. In return, Diablo has a few compromising conditions of his own. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Suzanne Forster including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
