Anna is a beautiful Ph.D. student whose older brother is a notorious badass in the Wind Dragons MC. Of course she loves Rake, who’s looked out for her since their troubled childhood. But he’s still protecting her—to the extreme. She can’t make a move without a Wind Dragons motorcycle escort. Potential boyfriends flee, for fear of her ass-kicking sibling. And Rake’s made it clear that his biker brothers are trouble of the worst kind, and strictly off-limits. But one of these tattooed bad boys has already pierced her heart: Arrow, the bearded, darkly brooding rider with the body of a Greek God and eyes that betray a wounded soul. He’s sent to whisk her off campus on his thundering steel stallion. And when Anna wraps her arms around his rock-hard torso, it’s too late for caution: she’ll ride as far as the road takes them—unless Rake stops Arrow in his flight. . . .

KFF’s 4.5 ★ review by Claire Rose
Let’s start by saying I just loved Dragon’s Lair. Therefore, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this novel, and was over the moon to be given the opportunity to receive and review this ARC. The events in this book have taken place five years after Dragon’s Lair, so please read book one.
Chantal has written a fantastic story that pulls on your heartstrings. The characters in this novel are all about family, caring, loving, and most importantly, always have each other’s back. There doesn’t come a time where you don’t feel the love flowing through this book, and I found myself smiling or laughing at many points in this read.
The prologue starts us off with Arrow having a serious think about what’s happened in his life. So he is trying to drown his sorrows with a bottle of whiskey. In walks his MC brother and his baby sister. Instantly Arrow is having feelings for the young Anna; feelings he doesn’t want. My poor darling Arrow! He is a strong, sexy, dominant, and a fun loving male who is fighting his demons while at the same time, fighting his attraction for Anna. Until events occur putting Anna in danger and placing her at the protection of the club house. Arrow decides to stop pushing Anna away; however, he ends up hurting her with the quilt of the past. And Janet is trying her hardest to cause a few problems for the both of them which doesn’t help matters. With secrets that only he knows, will he lose the one woman for him? Can he hold on, or will he succumb to the darkness again?
Anna! What a strong, feisty, independent young woman. She knows who she wants, what she wants, and can’t stand being told what to do. She’s brought into the MC world when she moves back home to her brother who belongs to the Wind Dragons MC. While trying to accept her new MC family, her brother’s relationship with the other members of the club is causing jealous emotions hard to control. She’s also fighting her strong feelings for Arrow. Looking into his eyes, she can see the lust he has for her, so why is he pushing her away… hurting her? When she overhears her brother’s and Arrow’s conversation, suddenly she feels very confused. She realises that there are secrets being kept from her. Hurt replaces the love she has, so she does the one thing she said she would never do. She runs! She runs to the somebody who holds all the answers. Answers that make her more confused, hurt, shocked and angry. I say confused because she doesn’t know what to think or feel. All Anna wanted was to finish college, rebuild her relationship with her brother and maybe fall in love. Can these two characters overcome everything? Can they put the past behind them and move forward? Read it and find out!
I loved all characters in this novel, and I do have to say that Chantal has developed Anna’s character to perfection. I loved the way she stands up for herself and won’t take any rubbish from anyone. The story is written well throughout; nevertheless, I felt that it was a little too rushed towards the end. I would have liked more detail about what happened to Janet. So for this reason, I’ve rated the book four and half stars.
Wind Dragons MC Series
When Faye discovers her boyfriend in bed with another woman, she does something incredibly stupid: she sleeps with his brother, Dexter Black. He’s the boy next door who grew up to be one sexy biker dude, pure alpha male to the core. A tattooed muscle-bound fantasy in the flesh, Dex is now vice president of the notorious Wind Dragons MC. And now Faye’s really screwed. . . . She’s a law student with a future. He’s a criminal with a past. She’s a good girl from a strict family. He’s a bad boy who breaks all the rules. But once Faye straddles the back of Dex’s bike—and experiences the thrill of the open road, the rush of pure adrenaline, and the roar of unbridled lust—there’s no turning back. This good girl and her hot-blooded biker are in for the ride of their lives. . .
