They call him ‘War’. Growing up without a family to call his own, Xander Cole spent a lot of time on the streets. Time had changed him. Hardened him. But his inner turmoil—the war inside—always raged on, eventually leading him to Satan’s Pride, the Motorcycle Club and band of brothers he came to consider family. They patched him in as War for his loyalty and willingness to fight for the Pride. Life with the MC is everything he’s ever wanted, and the only thing he thinks he’ll ever need—until he meets Maddie Holden, and suddenly, there’s something he needs even more.
Music has been Maddie’s solace for as long as she can remember. After a turbulent upbringing, Maddie left home at seventeen to form the band, The Smoking Guns, with her brother, Paul. But just as their band starts taking off, Maddie suffers a traumatic experience at the hands of a crazed fan, who obsesses over her, stalks her, and ultimately holds her against her will. Maddie retreats from performing in the band. Until one day, Guard, the President of the Satan’s Pride MC, approaches the band with a request. He wants The Smoking Guns to perform for his wedding anniversary, and that includes Maddie.
Guard assigns War as Maddie’s bodyguard, to protect her and keep her safe from a stalker –a job War is ever so eager to manage. With War at her side, Maddie’s confidence, passion for life and provocative side blossoms. Will War find the one thing he needs?
