Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.
As a Lost Girl to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club, Nicole Whelan knows how to party. She’s not cut-out for relationships and her life is way too complicated for anything more than casual encounters. But one night when she falls into Duke’s bed at the clubhouse, he sees something in her that he can’t let go of—no matter how many times she tries to run.
Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she’s already got her hands full and isn’t looking for anymore complications. But Duke’s just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn't have, and then lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he’s more determined than ever to break down Nic’s walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he’s got a bad track record and she’s got a bad temper. Changing his ways isn’t easy when he’s not sure what he’s even changing for.
The violence and turmoil are at an all-time high, and Forsaken is in a vulnerable place when a twist of fate breathes new life into the club. It’s a much-needed beacon of hope for the embattled biker family, even if everyone’s not exactly on board. With Duke and Nic’s relationship already on shaky ground, and something even more important at stake, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club will fight like hell to keep their family together and whole.
Love is never more precious than when it’s new.
As a child, JC was fascinated by things that went bump in the night. As they say, some things never change. Now, as an adult, she divides her time between the sexy law men, mythical creatures, and kick-ass heroines that live inside her head and pursuing her bachelor's degree in English. JC is a San Francisco Bay Area native, but has also called both Texas and Louisiana home. These days she rocks her flip flops year round in Northern California and can't imagine a climate more beautiful.
JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries, yet she is most enthralled by supernatural stories-- and everything has at least a splash of romance.

This one was told from dual POV's so I never really had to guess what the other was thinking. Nicole is a lost girl that is honestly trying to make the best of her situation. A situation that has left her scraping to make ends meet, mothering her half brother, and abused mentally/physically. She is one tough cookie but her circumstances In life have made her that way. She has always loved duke but his whorish ways wont let her give herself to him completely. Well the good news is like most men the realization of what they have hits them between the eyes when they no longer have it in reach. Oh men!!! Duke was no different. It was an interesting read To see the chase between Nicole and duke. It's amazing how we tend judge people before really getting to know them. The term leave no stone unturned rings true in this one. The more stones turned over in the Nicole/duke saga the more they learned about each other and grew. I enjoyed this one but i still think book 1 is my favorite of this series so far. Great job mrs. Emery! I can't wait to read more from you!
