Raven Riders Trilogy by Laura Kaye
Brotherhood. Club. Family.
They live and ride by their own rules.
These are the Raven Riders...
Raven Riders Motorcycle Club President Dare Kenyon rides hard and values loyalty above all else. He'll do anything to protect the brotherhood of bikers--the only family he's got--as well as those who can't defend themselves. So when mistrustful Haven Randall lands on the club's doorstep scared that she's being hunted, Dare takes her in, swears to keep her safe, and pushes to learn the secrets overshadowing her pretty smile.
Haven fled from years of abuse at the hands of her criminal father and is suspicious of any man's promises, including those of the darkly sexy and overwhelmingly intense Ravens' leader. But as the powerful attraction between them flares to life, Dare pushes her boundaries and tempts her to want things she never thought she could.
The past never dies without a fight, but Date Kenyon's never backed down before...
He shifted toward the window that looked out over the clubhouse's big back porch. The darkness kept him from seeing much, but the sound - definitely a woman humming - was coming from someone out there for sure. He stretched further, far enough to see the moonlight reflect off of long blond hair. Haven. Sitting with her head lying on folded arms on the porch railing. Her face was totally in shadows, but her humming continued on. Soft. Sweet. Peaceful.
Maverick Rylan won't apologize for who he is--the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club Vice-President, a sought-after custom bike builder, and a man dedicated to protecting those he loves. So when he learns that the only woman who has ever held his heart is in trouble, he'll move heaven and earth to save her.
Alexa Harmon thought she had it all--the security of a good job, a beautiful home, and a powerful, charming fiancé who offered the life she never had growing up. But when her dream quickly turns into a nightmare, Alexa realizes she's fallen for a façade she can't escape--until sexy, dangerous Maverick offers her a way out.
Forced together to keep Alexa safe, their powerful attraction reignites and Maverick determines to do whatever it takes to earn a second chance--one Alexa is tempted to give. But her ex-fiancé isn't going to let her go without a fight, one that will threaten everything they both hold dear.
With his longish sandy-blond hair and his square jaw and his ruthlessly masculine features and his Raven Riders cutoff jacket hanging on those broad shoulders, Maverick was the sexiest man she'd ever known. Had been when they were together five years before, still was even now. No, he was hotter now. More muscular. More rugged somehow. More self-possessed. Utterly desirable.
Wild with grief over the death of his wife, Sam "Slider" Evans merely lives for his two sons. Nothing holds his interest anymore--not even riding his bike or his membership in the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. But that all changes when he hires a new babysitter.
Recently freed from a bad situation by the Ravens, Cora Campbell is determined to bury the past. When Slider offers her a nanny position, she accepts, needing the security and time to figure out what she wants from life. Cora adores his sweet boys, but never expected the red-hot attraction to their brooding, sexy father. If only he would notice her...
Slider does see the beautiful, fun-loving woman he invited into his home. She makes him feel too much, and he both hates it and years for it. But when Cora witnesses something she shouldn't have, the new lives they've only just discovered are threated. Now Slider must claim-and protect-what's his before it's too late.
For being wrecked, broken, and more than a little lost, Slider Evans had a well of sweetness so deep that Cora wasn't sure how she'd ever find her way out. Or if she even wanted to.
Brotherhood. Club. Family. The Raven Riders Motorcycle Club is unlike any other. Together, the men of the Raven Riders MC use their connections to help women and children who are victims of domestic violence find new lives. I particularly enjoyed and continue to enjoy (I've reread this series multiple times) this trilogy because it is unlike any other MC book/series that I've read before. While not everything the Raven Riders do is technically legal, their mission is to help others have a chance at better lives than the ones they currently have. When Dare meets Haven, he knows right away he's someone special...then he realizes that he has to coordinate a new life for Haven and send her away from the trouble that's following her...and away from him. Maverick has only ever loved one woman his entire life, Alexa, and she walked out of his life five years ago. That was the case until she shows up on the Raven Riders doorstep with bruises on her face and a coincidental story on how they got there. Now that Alexa is back and seems to need Maverick's help, nothing will keep him away from her, not even her fiancé who seems determined to bring an end to the Raven Riders. Slider lost his wife to cancer 3+ years ago and has been drifting through life since with his focus solely on his sons, Sam and Ben. Since being rescued by the Raven Riders, Cora has wondered aimlessly trying to figure out what she should do with her life now that she's free. The mission of the men of the Raven Riders MC is to protect and defend others and now their mission becomes even more personal. I cannot recommend this series enough, it is an MC book but I guarantee it is completely unique and different from other MC books out there.
