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.
When I was contacted with an offer to read this for free in exchange for a honest review…I was more than excited but also feeling a bit sad too since this is the last book of the series (although maybe Laura Kaye will add some more novella’s down the road—maybe Jagger and Phonexix…*crossing fingers*) I have had such a blast with this series and don’t want to say goodbye to the Raven Riders but I couldn’t wait to pick up Caine’s book.
Caine is the sergeant at arms for the club, and he keeps himself distanced socially. He doesn’t like being around people very much. Caine has a painful past and doesn’t like to get emotionaly involved. But when he rescues a woman getting attacked he starts to realize that Emma is the one person that may get too close.
Emma is a kindergarten teacher, who lives alone with just her dog for company. She doesn’t have any family to speak of, and finds herself envious at times of Caine’s adopted family of the “Raven Riders”. But when she starts to find Caine around more, and with signs of someone stalking her, she is relieved to have Caine by her side.
I truly had a blast with this novella…Caine and Emma made such a darling couple that you find yourself drawn to and man they had a great connection. I have always been intrigued by Caine through the series, he is so closed off so I was really loving seeing the hidden depths to him and seeing him find his happy ever after and Emma was such a sweet and kind heroine. She is playful and fun and she has the right personality for Caine. I adored the way that these two come together…their relationship is sexy and poignant. Highly recommend if you are a fan of the series.
