He never meant to hurt her.
Levi -Painter- Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty--a loyalty that's tested when he's caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.
Melanie Tucker may have had a rough start, but along the way she's learned to fight for her future. She's escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can't forget. It all started out so innocently--just a series of letters to a lonely man in prison. Friendly. Harmless. Safe.
Now Painter Brooks is coming home... and Melanie's about to learn that there's no room for innocence in the Reapers MC.

Wyldes fifth Idaho-set Reapers Motorcycle Club contemporary (after Reapers Stand) starts out strong but runs out of gas just shy of the end. Melanie Tucker was just a teen when handsome biker Painter went to jail. Her letters to him started just as a way to say thank you for loaning her his car, but they eventually turned into a lifeline for both of them. Once hes released, they find their way to each other, despite everyone warning each of them away. The sparks predictably fly, but sometimes simple sparks are never enough. The world of the club is well developed and lovingly described, but some of the effort expended there might have been better used on characterization and a less stereotypical ending. There are several nice twists to keep things interesting, but Melanie and Painter both come across as somewhat flat. Fortunately, the supporting cast is wonderfully larger than life. Agent: Amy Tannenbaum, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Nov.)
