After five years of solitude, Drew Tucker, the grieving, sadistic president of The Hounds of Babylon MC is finally out of prison with only one thing on his mind: revenge for the death of his brother.
But everything has changed since he left the small town of Babylon, Texas, and where he once owned the world around him, he now feels misguided, misplaced, and misunderstood.
That only gets worse when he crosses paths with Ayda Hanagan, legal guardian to her teenage brother. Over worked and underpaid, she’s clinging to her sanity by the skin of her teeth. She should be easy for Drew to beat down and manipulate.
She should be easy to keep quiet.
She should definitely be easy to forget.
Determined to stay on the road he was born to travel and reign supreme once more, Drew is willing to fight whoever gets in his way, even the blue-eyed blonde who seems to have more mouth than sense. His actions are about to shake up the whole damn town, and Drew doesn’t care whether that comes with or without consequences. Or what the hell that means for the likes of Ayda Hanagan.
AAyda Hanagan’s life has taken a whole new road to Hell since she agreed to lie down beside Babylon’s very own devil in disguise, Drew Tucker.
Lost in the screwed-up perfection of their new fairy tale, Drew and Ayda think they can handle anything life throws at them. But not all their enemies wear patches on their chests, and before they can even see the eyes of the wolves in the shadows waiting to bring them to their knees, they’re all out of places to run.
With everything they've ever believed in suddenly at risk, fear is no longer an option, and Drew and Ayda soon find themselves in the middle of a war that looks impossible to get out of alive. In order to survive, they have to learn how to fight together.
Even if that means sacrificing everything they’ve worked for, including each other.
Determined to be a better man, Drew Tucker is trying to turn over a new leaf as the president of his MC. With Ayda by his side, and the enemy he once feared now gone, he can finally see a glimmer of hope on the horizon for their future together.
With Ayda more adamant than ever to save her man from any more pain, she’s seeking guidance from unlikely allies, keeping a secret of her own to gain strength to protect the unexpected family she’s come to love.
But secrets never stay secrets for long in Babylon, and when the shadows begin to step out into the light, Drew and Ayda are faced with a hundred new challenges neither one of them could have predicted.
Lies are no longer an option.
Not for Drew, Ayda, or any of The Hounds of Babylon MC.
No matter what happens when the truth is finally set free.
Drew Tucker is gone.
The man Ayda Hanagan loves has disappeared into the darkness once again, his mind buried in the torture of grief, his body cold and hard, and his heart completely switched off. Nothing matters to him anymore. Not his brothers, his club, and definitely not the woman he vowed to spend the rest of his life worshipping. The only thing he craves now is blood.
Stuck in a one-way love affair, Ayda knows she only has so much time left to bring him back, and she’s willing to do anything she can to show Drew just how much he means to her, even if that means hurting him the way he’s hurt her.
The battles have been fought, and now the war is on the horizon.
With fires being started all around them, the heart of Babylon is in trouble. The enemies are circling more than ever, and The Hounds need their leader to return so they can fight together without shame.
Before the whole damn place is burned to the ground.
Loyalty is dying.
Trust has been extinguished.
Too many enemies are waiting at every turn, wanting the blood of The Hounds of Babylon MC and everyone they’ve ever loved. With nowhere left to run, Drew Tucker finally understands that the only way out of the war is to go through it.
Despite wanting to protect Ayda Hanagan with everything he has, Drew also knows that she, of all people, belongs by his side. He needs her with him in the midst of battle, holding on tight, right where he can protect her beautiful heart, her precious body, and their dreams of a peaceful future together—a future every man Drew has ever crossed now wants to destroy.
It all comes down to this.
To their passion.
To their ability to survive.
To their need to fight for a peaceful forever.
And their desire to hold onto the kind of love no amount of blood, tears, or death could ever break apart.
