Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.
As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business—and Jace Stone always gets what he wants.
When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn’t looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?
Dixie has always been an intriguing character for me. She’s so tough but so soft at the same time. It was definitely going to need a special type of man to keep make her happy and content. Jace Stone was that man, no doubt. He is such a mans man, then you realize he has a gooey center. When it comes to kids and his sisters, there is no sweeter man.
There are plenty of times, throughout this story, that Dixie’s “I chase no man” attitude and Jace’s “no roots” view of life drove me crazy. Most especially Dixie. I got that she didn’t want to show vulnerability. She knew the score from the beginning with Jace and didn’t want to show her belly or, worse, be the clingy woman who is oblivious to the way things are. While Dixie had an issue with Jace’s lack of communication, it was really a problem for both of them. She was so concerned with smothering Jace that she was keeping far too much to herself.
Their communication issues aside, Jace and Dixie were fire when together. There was never any denying their connection and I love how in tune they were with each other. When they weren’t together, I was wishing they were…just like Dixie. This story came alive whenever they shared the pages.
As always, it’s wonderful to catch up with this family. I got a bit too excited when I realized that Quincy will be getting his HEA next. I have a soft spot for all of the Whiskeys, but the Gritt boys will always have a special place with me.
