The Synopsis for ‘LAST RIDE’:

The Wind Dragons MC couple who started it all is back! We met the stars of Chantal Fernando’s bestselling series in Dragon’s Lair, and now Sin and Faye are ready for more—and with these two, that means more passion, more action, and more of the best kind of trouble.

Sin, president of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club, doesn’t mind that things have quieted down since he got married—with Faye at his side, he’ll never be bored. Plus, they’ve got their little girl Clover to keep them on their toes. But when new MC brother Talon needs help rooting out a traitor in his old club, Faye’s the first to volunteer. She’s more determined than ever to get involved and put her law degree to good use, but Sin soon finds himself riding to the rescue. Because he’ll kill anybody who touches a hair on Faye’s head—if she doesn’t get to them first. One way or another, tonight’s going to be someone’s last ride….

 

__________________________________________________

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘LAST RIDE’ by Chantal Fernando:

After reading the final installment of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club Series titled “Last Ride”, and know it all started with ‘Dragon’s Lair’ by Chantal Fernando, I’m left feeling fulfilled and sad to see it end. This novel and the entire series is absolutely worth reading! The biker brothers of the Wind Dragons M.C., and the beautiful and strong women in their lives, all get their cameos and make their memorable appearances in this exciting conclusion. Dex “Sin” and Faye continue to be dynamic, solid as a couple, as well as fantastic characters in Last Ride. This novel is written in the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Dex “Sin” Black and Faye Black.

The Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club has had its fair share of proven loyalty, strong bonds developed as well as dealt with heartbreak, tragedies, and the need for vengeance. Everything in the MC has become bonded like a family and has grown in many ways. When someone comes along to disrupt their unity, all hell will break loose. Dexter “Sin” Black, the President of the Wind Dragons MC, is married to one of the strongest women he’s ever met. Faye Black is a tough as nails woman, an attorney, a mother, and the wife of the man who holds her heart. Unfortunately, the MC world is never at peace for long when you have unknown enemies lurking around the corner.

When a person from Faye and Dex’s past makes a dangerous play that comes unexpectedly, Faye must do her best to stay alive and keep those she loves alive, too. When Dex “Sin” Black discovers who is tied to the ordeal he’s faced with, he will hunt this person down and flip the world upside down to find one of the most valuable things in his life. There’s a traitor in the Wind Dragon MC’s midst. Who is the traitor and how will they be dealt with once they are discovered? And how will Dex “Sin” handle it, when he finds out that he’s also been betrayed by someone he didn’t expect?

How will Dex “Sin” feel once he learns that true family may not always be blood? This novel is a bittersweet tailspin of suspense, gripping romance, and everything you’d want in the conclusion of an amazing biker series. Sin and Faye’s relationship is a ride-or-die kind of love, and it will be put to the test in the final installment of the Wind Dragons MC novel series. You’ll get the pleasure of seeing how all of the characters in this series is doing and past relationships. Who will survive, who will leave this world- one way or another, and who will ride their last ride? I definitely recommend this novel for those who adore and can appreciate a thrilling and hot biker novel that delivers on the goods! 😉 Add “Last Ride” and the entire series to your TBR list because you won’t be disappointed! I’ll miss this series! ❤

Wind Dragons 2 Arrows Hell by Chantal Fernando

⭐★⭐

The Synopsis for ‘ARROW’S HELL’:

Being the younger sister of a Wind Dragons MC member isn’t as great as you’d think it would be.

I can’t escape the details of my brother’s exploits.
No one tells me anything.
Men who know who I am tend to stay away from me.

And worst of all:
The members of the MC are off-limits.

When Arrow catches my eye, I make it my mission to make him happy again.

When I fall head over heels in love with him, I just hope he will be there to catch me.
And that my brother doesn’t kill him.

 

__________________________________________________

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘ARROW’S HELL’ by author Chantal Fernando:

After reading the first novel of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club Series titled ‘Dragon’s Lair’ by Chantal Fernando, I was looking forward to reading the next novel of the series. I was gifted the opportunity to read and review the second long-awaited novel in this series “Arrow’s Hell” and I have to say it was absolutely worth the wait! This story follows the brothers of the Wind Dragons M.C. while focusing on the main characters of this sequel novel, Anna “Anna-Bell” and M.C. member Arrow. Readers, Arrow’s Hell is written in mostly the main female character’s P.O.V.(point of view) but we also get a little glimpse into Arrow’s P.O.V. as well. 

This novel picks up five years later. Faye and Dex “Sin”- the President of the Wind Dragons M.C. are still together. Tension between the Wind Dragons and a rival M.C. grew into a war which ended up taking lives, one was the sweet and caring woman Mary that spent her time with the Wind Dragon’s member Killian “Arrow”. Even after five years, Arrow still carries a heavy amount of guilt, anger and sadness even after taking revenge by killing the President of the rival M.C. that murdered Mary. He now drowns himself in his M.C., alcohol and visiting the strip club. To the outside and his brothers, he’s just fine but he’s hiding so many dark feelings that are slowly tearing him up inside. When his M.C. brother Rake brings his younger sister Anna to the club, she instantly makes him feel horrible. He can’t allow himself to be attracted to someone new, he doesn’t deserve it but something about her is frustratingly confusing the hell out of his feelings.

Anna recently reunited with her brother Adam, known as Rake to his motorcycle club brothers. She’s lived on her own for a while and after the childhood they came from, they both had to learn to survive mostly on their own. Anna is beautiful and in her twenties so when she finds out that being the sister of a member in the Wind Dragons M.C. means having more eyes on her and protection she didn’t ask for, she feels the need to fight the overbearing change to her life. And it’s all thanks to her brother and his M.C family. There is one brother who always seems broody, mean and hard to read but he is the only one that seems to draw her in. Arrow is sexy, tall, with a beard that she just finds so damn sexy but his moodiness is not always a comfort to be around.

With an attraction that is so strong and hard to fight at times, Anna and Arrow find themselves constantly battling that pull and the baggage of their pasts. Will Arrow always hold himself responsible for Mary’s death? Will he ever give Anna a chance? Can Anna survive being a part of her brother Rake’s biker lifestyle or will it cause problems between them? Will Anna always see Arrow as just another biker womanizer? If you’re familiar with all of the dynamic characters of this series, you’ll be happy to know that we also get a glimpse at them as well. And readers will also get a very good look into what may be developing between Lana(Anna’s best friend) and the fun M.C. brother Tracker, who is also dealing with his rocky relationship with Allie.

The Wind Dragons M.C. takes care of their own and those they care for no matter what. Dealing their illegal business, sometimes using violence when necessary and loving hard, they are a sexy bunch of alpha-males. Not only are the males sexy and protective but there are also strong female characters in the mix, giving us awesome characters to love and hate. This storyline continues to be dangerously good and steamy in such an intense way. Just like the first novel in the Wind Dragons M.C. series, this one continues with the same texture as far as not being too gritty like other biker/M.C. novels. But it still continues to keep a dark and dramatic tone to the storyline with a sizable amount of suspense. Author Chantal Fernando again gives cameos and appearances to some of the awesome characters from her amazing ‘Maybe Series’, which include Reid Knox, Summer, Ryan, Dash, and Tag. I love when she does that! I recommend this gripping novel to readers who love a good, dark romance with hot M.C. bikers. If you’re looking for something to read, this is a definite “Must Read!”  🙂

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘ARROW’S HELL′

Anna’s thoughts:  Sure, my heart races whenever he is near, but I try to ignore that little factor as best as I can. It doesn’t change anything. Arrow is my guilty pleasure, something I know I shouldn’t want but want anyway. The thing is, I’ve seen little glimpses of him that makes me believe he is more than he shows the world.

Arrow’s thoughts:  The clubhouse moves around me, people talking, laughing and carrying on, but I feel like I’m frozen. Like the world is moving around me, but I’m stuck in place. I know I’m held back by my own demons, my own guilt, but I don’t deserve any redemption.

Anna’s thoughts:   Luckily for me, I’m not a young, insecure girl anymore and there’s only a handful of people in the world whose opinion I actually care about. Likely they think I’m a biker groupie, or something along those lines. In reality, I’m just a twenty-five-year-old PhD student and a girl who happens to be the younger sister of a Wind Dragons M.C. member. If people want to judge me, that’s their prerogative, and I couldn’t care less.

Arrow’s thoughts: There’s no jealousy in her eyes, no hurt.
Only understanding.
How the fuck did I get so lucky?
Me, a fuckin’ sinner.
A tainted man.
A guilty man.

The Synopsis for ‘Time Will Tell’:

Be spontaneous, they say.
That’s how I ended up on the back of a stranger’s bike.

A sexy, tall, tattooed stranger, but a stranger nonetheless.

How was I to know that a chance meeting with this man, Xander Kane, was going to change my life?

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ for ‘TIME WILL TELL'(Maybe Series – book #3) by Author Chantal Fernando:

The wait for the third novel of the Maybe Series was long awaited but truly well worth it! In the first two novels of this series, we were introduced to the twin-brothers Reid and Ryan Knox. This story follows Xander Kane and Trillian and readers will get to enjoy the story in both main character’s P.O.V’s(point of views).

Xander Kane is heartbroken. The loss of someone very important in his life has brought him down and he needs time away. Tall, handsome, tattooed, and swoon-worthy Xander decides to take a road trip to meet up with his longtime friend Zach in another town to just take a break. The pain from the loss of a loved one is just beneath the surface and he just plans to try his best to get his mind right but when he arrives to Channon he meets a girl that he instantly is drawn to.

Trillian lives alone and has for the past two years since her father passed away. She doesn’t have much family but her best-friend April, her good friend/neighbor Zach and his dad Grim, who both happen to be a part of the Wind Dragon’s MC, are the closest people she has to family in her life now. When Trill goes out with April for a night of fun, she comes across a very gorgeous guy that makes her feel an attraction that she’s never felt toward a man before. As the night progresses, they both find out that they have a connection in more ways than one.

I absolutely enjoyed this novel and loved the chemistry between all of the characters! The friendship between Trillian and Zach is adorable; the growing chemistry between Xander and Trillian is so pleasing. From the moment Trillian and Xander meet and reading what may develop, it all is sweet and captivating. Will the friendship between Trillian and Zach make Xander think there is more between them? Will ex’s ruin things for Trillian and Xander? “Time Will Tell” is full of entertaining moments in the story as well as a perfect mix of romance and steamy-hotness with alpha-male galore. This one does not disappoint and I recommend it for anyone looking for something great to read next. This series is worth the read. 🙂

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘TIME WILL TELL′

Xander’s thoughts:  He was my hero. He was rough around the edges, hung around with bikers, and drank and swore a lot. But he was tough and had a heart of gold. Now he is six feet under. I stand and pace the hallway, running my fingers through my hair and tugging on the ends. And then I make a decision. For the first time in my life, I just need to leave. To get away. Be somewhere else. I need to be free. Does time heal all wounds? I guess only time will tell.

Tillian’s thoughts:  Zach and I became friends, and the two of them had kept an eye on me ever since my dad passed away. An extremely unlikely friendship, considering Zach’s dad, Grim, is the president of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club. Zach is my age and also in the MC. I call him the biker prince whenever I want to piss him off.

Xander and Tillian: “Do you want to be around me? That’s all it really comes down to. After spending tonight with you, I don’t think I could sit at Zach’s without wanting to be here.”
She scrapes her teeth along her bottom lip. “I do want to be around you.”

Xander and Tillian: He kissed my mouth again then pulls back. “I haven’t been a saint, Trill, you need to know that. I’m young, and yeah, I’ve had my share of women, but like I said, you’re different.”
“Why?” I ask.
His gaze lowers to my mouth. “Fuck if I know. I just want you more than I’ve ever wanted someone before. That’s all I know.”

Xander’s thoughts:  The kiss isn’t polite or reserved.
No, it’s hot, all consuming, and demanding.
It’s hungry. It’s needy.
It’s teeth clashing, biting and sucking.
Licking. Tasting. I devour her mouth.

The Synopsis for ‘Dragon’s Lair’ via Goodreads.com:

When I found my boyfriend cheating on me, I did something stupid.

Or should I say, someone?

Because of that mistake, I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong in.

I’m a law student. They’re criminals.
He’s the Vice President of a MC. I’m a good girl with a strict upbringing.

He’s my ex-boyfriend’s brother.
And I’m screwed.

__________________________________________________

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ of ‘DRAGON’S LAIR’ by author Chantal Fernando:

I finished reading ‘Dragon’s Lair’ by Chantal Fernando in such a short amount of time because it was that enjoyable.  Could not put it down.  You’ll meet a hot biker named Dexter ‘Sin’ Black and twenty-year-old Faye. Readers, in case you’re wondering, ‘Dragon’s Lair’ is written in Faye’s P.O.V.(point of view).  The main female character, Faye, comes to the realization that no matter how much she plans her life, things sometimes go in a whole different direction.  And it usually turns out to be for the best. 

After getting her heart broken when she discovers that her longtime boyfriend is a cheater and having parents concerned more about image than about their daughter Faye’s happiness,  she decides to do something out of the norm.  With her long term plans ruined thanks to her now ex-boyfriend Eric,  she throws caution to the wind and heads out for a night of fun at a familiar bar by the name of ‘Knox’s Tavern'(familiar from Chantal Fernando’s ‘Maybe Series’).  Faye is a beautiful twenty-year-old law student with long-auburn hair and hazel eyes. On her night out, she runs into someone she hasn’t seen in five years, her childhood crush. He was a cute bad boy when she knew him then but he has grown up to be a sexy biker.  He invites her to enjoy the night with him and she agrees.

After one night of bliss and fantasy fulfillment with a guy named Dexter Black, whom she never thought she’d get to know in such an intimate way, she can’t seem to get him off of her mind.  Faye has no idea how much her life will change after that night.

Dexter Black, who is known simply as ‘Sin’ to his biker brothers in the ‘Wind Dragons MC(motorcycle club)’ is tall, with dark hair, blue eyes and delicious good-looks. His life is all about sex, illegal business, violence when necessary and handling M.C. business as the club’s Vice President of the MC.  After having one hot night with his younger brother’s ex-girlfriend Faye, he goes back to his regular bad-boy-biker life.  But soon after, he finds out something from his brother Eric about Faye. He sets out to search for her.

Faye now must go from law-student raised by strict parents to being under the protection of her fantasy guy, Dex ‘Sin’ Black in the midst of his biker lifestyle.  How will Faye deal with all of the changes in her life? Can she handle being around Sin’s biker brothers or will the dangers of the biker world be too much for her? This story is dangerously good. It’s not as gritty as many other biker/MC novels I’ve read but it still keeps a dramatic and dark tone to the storyline with entertaining characters.  I enjoyed how author Chantal Fernando gave characters from her ‘Maybe Series’ a few ‘name-cameos’ in this story, which include Reid Knox, Jack Kane and Xander Kane.  Nice touch, for those familiar with that fantastic series! I do recommend this fantastic novel.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this novel to become a series because there are some supporting characters that I would love to read their stories too.  If you’re looking for something to read, check this one out.  🙂

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘DRAGON’S LAIR′

Faye’s thoughts:  What I need to do is move on with my life, and settle down somewhere quiet and safe.  Somewhere without sex-on-a-stick bikers and their douche lord cheating brother.  Somewhere where my parents aren’t around and I can be myself.

Faye’s thoughts:   I haven’t seen him in five years.  The years have been very good to him.  In fact, he seems to have gotten even sexier with age.  Dex.  I’ve had a crush on Dex for as long as I can remember.  A silly, childhood crush.  He was the local bad boy, but to me he was always sweet and patient.

Faye’s thoughts on Dex’s tattoo:  The dragon’s face tattooed on his back is staring right at me, its body coiled tightly behind it.  It’s beautiful, intricate, and deadly.  Just like the man standing before me.

Faye and Dex ‘Sin’: “So how did you find yourself in an MC?”-(Faye)
“Sometimes you need to make your own family.”-(Dex)
“Maybe I could do that.”-(Faye)
“You already are babe. You aren’t getting rid of me so easily.”-(Dex)
“Who would have thought we’d be here right now?”-(Faye)
“Not me, that’s for sure.  But I don’t regret it.  Any of it.”-(Dex)

Dex ‘Sin’ and Faye: “Don’t look at me like that,” he growls, hand cupping my jaw.
“Like what?” I ask breathlessly.
“Like you want me more than anything else in the world,” he says, his eyes on my lips.
“Right now I do,” I say, slightly leaning forward until our lips touch.
