And the winner is…RIDE DIRTY!

And the winner is…CAINE MCKANNON!

That’s right! You voted, and Caine won 38% of the vote (with Phoenix coming in second and Jagger third) to be the hero of my last official Raven Riders story, coming March 13, 2018! Now, I say last official because I won’t rule out writing more – I hear you! (And, guys, I love these characters, too! It means so much to me that you all were so passionate in your choices!) Now, here’s more about Caine’s book:

 

Add Caine to your Goodreads

– cover and preorder coming soon!

 

Caine McKannon is all about rules. As the Raven Riders Sergeant-at-Arms, he prizes loyalty to his brothers and protection of his club. As a man, he takes pleasure wherever he can get it but allows no one close—because distance is the only way to ensure people can’t hurt you. And he’s had enough pain for a lifetime.

And then he rescues a beautiful woman from an attack.

Kids and school are kindergarten teacher Emma Kerry’s whole life, so she’s stunned to realize she has an enemy—and even more surprised to find a protector in the intimidating man who saved her. Tall, dark, and tattooed, Caine is unlike any man Emma’s ever known, and she’s as uncertain of him as she is attracted. As the danger escalates, Caine is in her house more and more – until one night of passion lands him in her bed.

But breaking the rules comes at a price, forcing Caine to fight dirty to earn a chance at love.

Thanks for voting – and reading!

VOTE for the next Raven Riders Hero!

So many of you have told me you want more Raven Riders – and I hear you! I have adored writing in this world, and these guys are as real to me as they could be! So I’d be only too happy to write more. The problem is, I can’t decide which of the remaining completely awesome and totally sex remaining characters should get the book!

Should it be the silent, mysterious, and intimidating Caine McKannon? Or should Jagger Locke, the sexy, brilliant, musical, and wrongfully accused brother, get the book? OR should it be Phoenix Creed, the scorching-hot smart-ass with the heart of gold?

I can’t decide. So it’s up to you. That’s right. You get to vote.

VOTE HERE!

And once you’re done, tell your friends to vote, too! For even more fun, share the graphic of the Raven you want to win, or make it your avatar. But do it all by November 15, because that’s when the voting ends and I make the big announcement on Facebook about who’s next!

How fun is this??? So go go! And comment down below to tell me who you hope wins! 😀

And grab all the Raven Riders books if you haven’t already!

Thanks for reading – and hopefully voting!

Washington Post Picks Ride Wild as Best Romance of the Month!

OMGOMGOMG! LOL! That’s pretty much the only reaction I can manage to the fact that the Washington Post chose Ride Wild as one of the three best romances of the month!

“Suspenseful and emotion, this is a romance that is more about love and family in its many forms than anything else. Kaye writes beautifully of parental devotion, love of animals, friendship and the wild, wonderful family that Slider and Cora create.”

See the full review – and the other two picks – here!

New Release! RIDE WILD is now available!

It’s here it’s here! RIDE WILD is now here! I hope you’ll grab your copy because I adored writing Slider and Cora’s story – plus it’s a standalone so you can jump right in!

And, did you hear the news? I’m doing something super special with Ride Wild! Part of the storyline of the book involves a heroine who is an aspiring veterinarian and works at an animal shelter, and that got me thinking about an organization I’ve admired for a while. Noah’s Arks Rescue provides emergency, rehabilitation, and adoption services to abused and neglected dogs – and I think that’s pretty amazing. So I’m donating a portion of all preorders and sales of the book through 11/5 to Noah’s Arks. Which means you can help me make a difference just by grabbing or gifting your copy of the book!

And don’t forget – you can also receive a bonus story for preordering, too – so there’s so much win here! I hope you’ll grab your copy of this standalone romance that’s already getting so many amazing reviews (see here and here)!

About RIDE WILD:

Wild with grief over the death of his wife, Sam “Slider” Evans merely lives for his two sons. Nothing holds his interest anymore—not even riding his bike or his membership in the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. But that all changes when he hires a new babysitter.

Recently freed from a bad situation by the Ravens, Cora Campbell is determined to bury the past. When Slider offers her a nanny position, she accepts, needing the security and time to figure out what she wants from life. Cora adores his sweet boys, but never expected the red-hot attraction to their brooding, sexy father. If only he would notice her…

Slider does see the beautiful, fun-loving woman he invited into his home. She makes him feel too much, and he both hates it and yearns for it. But when Cora witnesses something she shouldn’t have, the new lives they’ve only just discovered are threatened. Now Slider must claim—and protect—what’s his before it’s too late.

What people are saying:

  • “Kaye consistently delivers layered characters, sizzling love scenes, and smart, fresh plot […] A sexy, textured, and wholly satisfying romance.” ~ Kirkus Reviews on Ride Rough
  • “Top Pick! Cora Campbell and Slider Evans both have serious pain and darkness in their pasts, but watching them reach for the light is wonderful and moving. A terrific read!” ~ RT Book Reviews
  • “Cora and Slider’s corrosive histories make them question their worth and their relationships, and their combined vulnerabilities will rip readers’ hearts out. Kaye’s sassy dialogue and inner narration are hilarious and her taut plotting easily carries readers through the story. Though part of a series, this tale can be read as a standalone. Fans who are just discovering the series will undoubtedly search out the other books set in this rough-and-tumble world. This story honors a powerful definition of family: “perhaps not related by blood, but people who claimed you, no matter what.” ~ STARRED Review, Publishers Weekly
  • “Incredible chemistry and so much heart! Ride Wild is a must read!” ~ NYT Bestselling Author Melissa Foster
  • “I adore Laura Kaye. She writes HOT and emotional, and always delivers! Ride Wild is my kind of book – hello, sexy single dad!” ~ #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely
Thanks for reading! I hope you’ll check out the book!

5 STARS from Cara’s Book Boudoir! “Ride Wild is my favorite MC Romance book of all time! There I said it! Review over! But in all honesty, to me it is perfection! And as a professional nanny myself, it is truly one of the best nanny romances out there! I have read it at least 30 times!! The writing is fantastic, plot is delicious, and in my case, hard to ever let go!”

5 STARS from Addicted to Romance! “One Of The Best Books Of The Year – what a story Ride Wild turned out to be and I just couldn’t put this one down! This book will take you on twists and turns, adventures and thrills, with some dangers along the way and a wonderful blend of passion, true love and the great unit that is the Raven Riders. Buckle your seats because this is a ride you won’t want to miss!! BREATHTAKING IN EVERY WAY!

5 STARS from Monique Daoust! “Seldom does an author write exactly the book you wanted to read, and with RIDE WILD, Laura Kaye did just that. RIDE WILD is an extraordinary book, a romance for the ages, and Laura Kaye at her very best; this is the real deal! This is the book I have been waiting for, the book I was hoping for, and I am ecstatic at that Laura Kaye gave me everything I wanted and more!”

4 STARS from Cocktails and Books! “Laura Kaye gives us a to die for slow burn between these two that you don’t want to miss.”

5 STARS from About that Story! “This series keeps getting better and better (and I already thought it was pretty fantastic)! Slider and Cora coming together was amazing. I loved the story, the kids (hello single father!), and the transformation of healing that love brings. It was sweet and sexy with just the right amount of drama, and it was filled with so much emotion. Excellent read!”

5 STARS from Book Munchies! “Whether it’s read as a standalone or as part of the Raven Riders series, Ride Wild is a romance that does not disappoint. Laura Kaye seamlessly weaves together a story of acceptance, healing, and family, plus some devastatingly sexy moments, a bit of intrigue/action, and hot guys on bikes. This story is everything I didn’t know I needed from Ms. Kaye. If you’ve read her Hard Ink series, you know to expect a steamy hot romance and a great story. With Ride Wild, she takes it to a new level by adding this ready made family, just waiting to tug on your heartstrings. Highly recommended!”

5 STARS from Reads All the Books! “LOVED. I loved the pace of Ride Wild, this isn’t a fast paced insta-love.  This is a love that develops over time and through the interactions of the couple with each other and with Slider’s boys.  This is the way you think of love happening to ‘real people’.  It’s thoughtful and passionate and consuming. There is plenty of romance, suspense, and swoon worthiness in Ride Wild, you will not be disappointed. You can read this as a standalone so if this is your first time picking up a Raven Riders book don’t hesitate to start but get ready to head back to your book seller for the rest of them!”

5 STARS from FMR Book Grind! “Loved every minute of this book, it was sweet, heartbreaking, drama, and some scary parts, some hot and steamy parts and some totally WTF parts. Definitely one of my all time favorite series.”

5 STARS from Ebook Indulgence! “Ride Wild is my favorite title in the series so far. It had the danger, drama, intrigue, action and twists and turns i’ve come to expect from Laura Kaye, but it was so much more. Ride Wild is a story of healing and love. I loved this title, and cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who has enjoyed the previous books in the Raven Riders series.”

5 STARS from Take Me Away to a Great Read!: “5 STARS from Take Me Away To A Great Read: “This book has romance, mystery and is oh so sexy!!! The chemistry between Cora and Slider is a perfect slow burn. Ride Wild is a fast paced, hot, intense read!!! It was a perfect ending to the journey, that was so satisfying! I definitely recommend this book and am giving it 5 out 5 stars.”

5 STARS from Romance as a First Language! “Their connection is so strong that it is impossible to deny it. You will love this book.”

4.5 STARS in two reviews from Reviews by Tammy and Kim!: Review 1: “This is a slow burn, emotional, second-chance romance between two damaged people who never expected to find a connection.” Review 2: “This book kept me riveted.”

4 STARS from Becky on Books and Quilts! “Ride Wild continues the romantic suspense I-must-keep-turning-the-pages feel we’ve come to expect from this series, making me glad that there are many more single “brothers” left in this motorcycle club!”

4.5 STARS from Thoughts Of A Blonde! ” loved her and Slider together, and most of all, I enjoyed the little family they made for his boys. I hope there will be more in the series!”

GREAT REVIEW from Romancing the Readers!: “I’m not a fan of the motorcycle themed romance and yet here I am reviewing Ride Wild. Kaye does a wonderful job weaving together a love story that celebrates what was and what can be. She also adds some suspense that will keep you turning the pages. Ride Wild is all around a great story that’s perfect for the Raven Riders series.”

5 STARS from Night Owl Reviews!: “Laura Kaye takes the MC romance and turns it on its head! These aren’t your typical bikers, and you can’t help but fall in love with these hot and sexy alphas! (Their women are pretty special too!) You need to grab this series. You won’t be sorry!”

 

Thanks for reading!
