Jack "Preacher" Prior is at a crossroads -- literally. Left for dead in the Badlands, he's managed to survive. He's stolen a truck, but where can he go? Body broken, mind reeling from betrayal from his own MC brothers, he knows he won't last a day back in Rapid City in his current condition.

Two roads stretch out in front of him. One leads to the city and one deep into the black hills where no one knows him as the former President of the Badlands Buzzards. Revenge is not a question; it's an absolute. Preacher will get his due soon enough or die trying.

Erin Walker is at a crossroads of her own. Dealt a bad hand by being the daughter of Buck Walker, ex-Rodeo Champ, she's made her own way in the world without his help. She owns Thunder Ridge Ranch outright, and she's carved out a piece of paradise for herself with her own two hands. She's not giving it up without a fight, but she's alone in the world with no one to trust.

In Erin, Preacher finds something that doesn't exist in his own world: a smart, fierce independent woman who sets his blood on fire. For Erin, the mysterious man who threatens her life might very well be the only one who can save it.

Can Preacher put aside his desire for revenge against his old MC and accept what's in front of him: a woman who needs him and a future worth having? Erin knows in her heart that Preacher is a bad, dangerous man, but can she trust him anyway?

Not every choice is theirs to make, though, and in Rapid City the past never stays buried.



Dorsey’s Review

4 Preacher Loving Stars!!

Jack “Preacher” Prior is the President of the Badlands Buzzards MC, and he was betrayed by his MC brothers and left for dead. Jack’s journey back to the living is intense, heartbreaking and yet heartwarming at the same time.

Erin Walker is the owner of a small rehab horse ranch, she loves what she does but it seems nothing is going well for her, however she determined to make her rehab ranch a success!! Then her world tilts with a betrayal and a mysterious wounded stranger who comes to her aid when needed. Jack winds up staying on the ranch to help Erin out, but more importantly heal.

Jack is cold and distant, and determined not to form attachments, especially with Erin. He is also determined to heal to exact revenge on everyone who betrayed him. Needless to say, the longer he’s on the ranch and around Erin things change between them and soon she’s under his skin.

When its discovered that he is still alive, the Buzzards attempt to take care of him once for all, and unfortunately Erin gets caught up in his troubles and  learns exactly how ruthless and cold he can be.

I really enjoyed this book, I don’t normally read MC books but this is not your run of the mill MC book. It’s not dark and gritty, not that it was all sappy sweet,  so it totally worked for me plus there was a fantastic epilogue.
