Tony “Flyboy” Amara and David “Preacher” Cummings never desired to have ol’ ladies. As a matter of fact, they had spent their entire adult lives avoiding it. They even held on to their single statuses as their closest friends, men who were much more than club brothers, succumbed along with their own sons.

Edie Stevens and Eliza Tate lost their husbands several years ago and had given up on a second chance at love. When their older sister took a tumble and landed in a cast—the two widowed women sold their homes, closed their specialty shop on the east coast, and moved to Shades Valley to make a new start.

The day the two women witnessed two silver-headed men dressed in leather dismounting motorcycles in front of their store—the decision to relocate never looked better.

Catch up with the other men and women of the Black Hawk MC and their children as Flyboy and Preacher take the fall.

Four years ago, a tragic accident not only changed Tess Bowen’s life but her daughter’s. She often wondered if she had the strength to deal with the curveball life had thrown her way. Now with a job as a nurse and a thriving daughter, those earlier worries were pushed aside—Tess finally felt her life was back on track.

Dirk Minton always knew he would be a soldier. No job or career called to him like the military. He had planned to be a lifer. Instead, as a Master Sergeant, he was faced with the obstacles an injury presented and a looming medical discharge.

Fueled by anger, Dirt felt lost and left without a purpose in life. Until an encounter with a little girl and her reminder that even battle scarred didn’t take away a soldier’s worth.

Abby Drake is starting to feel as if she’s being chased by fire. So far, she has been able to stay ahead of the flames but worries one day, they might just catch up to her. She can already feel the heat, or maybe the sexy fireman she keeps encountering is the reason for it.

All Abby knows is, either way, she could end up getting burned.

Cian O’Shea is a third-generation firefighter. He has never shied away from heat—whether it has to do with his job or personal life. However, he refuses to feel guilty about still being single instead of married and giving his parents the grandchildren, which frequently gets mentioned to whoever will listen.

The only consolation is he isn’t alone in his parents’ quest to populate the South Side of Chicago. Cian’s three brothers and four cousins are also on the receiving end of the same speech. Though he would never admit to it – he looks forward to seeing who folds first under pressure. He only knows it won’t be him.

Merit “Crank” Michaels grew up in the foster care system. He had spent his youth moving from one house to another, never finding a real home. Once he aged out, he joined the Navy and became a SEAL. He planned to make the Navy his home, but a training accident changed that for him, leaving him once again searching for a place to call his own. When Crank joined the Haven MC, he knew he had found what he was looking for. Though he hadn’t expected or planned on meeting Madison Wetzel, his best friend’s baby sister.

Out of respect for his best friend and club brother, who had warned him off Madison, Crank initially fought his feelings for her.  However, one night with her had led to another, and now he needed to confess the truth to Pinch—everything that happened in Crank’s life had led him to her, and he had no plans to give her up.

Madison Wetzel loved her brother. How could she not? Cal had barely been nineteen and new to the military when their parents died, yet he fought and changed his life to take her in. But now, as an adult with an education and a good-paying job, she wanted her brother back, not the parent he had become out of necessity.

At first, she had slowly pushed back on his absurd overprotective inclinations because nothing had meant enough to have a fight over—until Merit “Crank” Michaels.

Madison hadn’t wanted to be the cause of any conflict between Pinch and Crank, so she had kept her involvement with Crank private. Even when he pushed her about coming clean with Pinch, she told him they had plenty of time.

Of course, that was before Madison was shot during a bank robbery. Sent to the hospital and then ordered to surgery right after the doctor dropped a bomb. A bomb which left the two men she cared most about in the world standing stunned as they wheeled her down the hall.

Who could plan for that?
