Exclusive Excerpt

Tristan tilted his head, a faint smile playing on his lips. “You don’t recognize me, do you?”

The guy hesitated. “To tell you the truth, I feel like I’ve seen you somewhere before.”

“It wasn’t on America’s Most Wanted, if that’s what you’re thinking,” Tristan drawled. “I was one of the best men at Carter and Elijah’s wedding.”

The guy’s eyes rounded.

“Oh. You’re one of the Terrible Seven,” he blurted out.

Tristan winced. “Yes, I am, for my sins.”

The guy flushed. “Sorry.”

Tristan smiled. “It’s okay. I’m Tristan. Tristan Hart.” He offered the guy his hand.

The man looked at it blankly for a moment. The color highlighting his cheekbones deepened when he realized what he was doing.

He recovered and shook Tristan’s hand. “Sorry. James. James Lang.”

Electricity sparked along Tristan’s nerve endings at the contact.


James stiffened, the way his lips parted and his breathing accelerated slightly a tell-tale sign he’d felt the same thing. The faintest hint of disappointment darkened his eyes when Tristan let go of his hand.

Tristan pretended he hadn’t noticed and headed over to the Harley to get his spare helmet. “You should put your suit jacket on. It’s gonna get chilly during the ride.”

James faltered before nodding. He retrieved his jacket from the Jag, locked up, and joined Tristan. He chewed his lip as he studied the helmet Tristan handed him.

“It won’t bite,” Tristan said, poker-faced.

James narrowed his eyes a little and yanked the helmet over his head.

“Sorry. It’s not an exact fit, but it’s better than nothing. Here, let me.” Tristan reached up and adjusted the straps under James’s chin.

James froze when Tristan’s fingers grazed his neck.

Tristan’s belly clenched on a wave of more than just awareness. Attraction sizzled through his veins when he noticed the quickening pulse at the base of James’s throat. He finished securing James’s helmet and slipped his own back on, his face inscrutable.

It wasn’t like him to have just an immediate reaction to a man.

But there was no denying what his body was telling him.

He wanted to do more than just fix James Lang’s car.

Tristan forced that compelling realization to the back of his mind to ponder later, climbed on the Harley, and started the engine. The motorbike sank a little when James got on the back.

“You ever ridden a bike before?”


Tristan couldn’t help smiling at the false bravado in James’s voice.

“It would be best if you put your arms around me,” he advised. “Just to be safe.”

“Okay,” James said reluctantly.

He wrapped his arms gingerly around Tristan’s waist and clasped his hands over his midriff. His thighs framed Tristan’s hips as his chest pressed up against Tristan’s back.

Damn, he smells good.

It took all of Tristan’s willpower not to shiver as James’s heat and intoxicating scent enveloped him. His dick came to life with a vengeance, so much so he was grateful it was dark and he was facing forward.

“Hang on tight.”


tristan coverHe’s a brooding, tattooed mechanic. He’s the suave manager of a famous rock band. Can opposites really attract?

The last thing Tristan Hart expects when he goes for a ride on his Harley one afternoon is that he’d pick up a gorgeous, stranded stranger on the side of the road. One who pushes his buttons in all the right ways. But James Lang isn’t the kinda of guy he’s used to dating and Tristan resigns himself to never seeing him again after he fixes his car and sends him on his way.

James is used to being in control of his life. As the manager of one of the most popular rock bands on the planet, he’s navigated plenty of storms, including the very public breakdown of the lead singer of Crazyknot. But all it takes is one soul-stirring kiss from Tristan to shatter his cool composure and make him ache for something he never thought he could have.

When circumstances beyond their control make Tristan and James’s worlds collide, their physical attraction deepens into something neither man expected. But the dark secrets James and Crazyknot have kept from the world soon come to light and the ensuing scandal threatens to ruin the lives of James’s best friend and one of Tristan’s closest childhood friend.

Can Tristan and James’s burgeoning relationship weather this latest storm? And will James finally open his heart to the man who has captivated his body, mind, and soul?
