Publication Date: September 1, 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, MC-Bikers
Can a scorching affair with a bohemian beauty tame a motorcycle man with a dark side? Rachael Johns takes the wheel in the sexy series co-written with Megan Crane, Jackie Ashenden, and Maisey Yates.
Travis “Cash” Sinclair values only two things from his days with the Deacons of Bourbon Street: his prized Harley Davidson and the man who gave it to him. But now Priest Lombard is gone, and Cash has inherited the Deacons’ clubhouse—not to mentions its unexpected tenant. She’s exactly the type of woman he tries to avoid: all incense and art, with a sharp tongue that promises trouble. So why does Cash want to push aside those flowing skirts and lose himself between her legs?
Billie Taylor fled a bad marriage to start a new life among the grit and glamour of the French Quarter. She refuses to let another man distract her from her dreams, especially an outlaw biker with nothing to offer except hot sex and an eviction notice. Cash is dangerous, with an untamed streak he tries desperately to conceal. He drives Billie wild, sending her too close to the edge for her own good. And she won’t fall under his spell—or into his bed—without a fight.

Now this is the second book in the Deacons of Bourbon Street series and I liked this book so much more than the previous book. It was fun, sexy and suck a quick read. This book can obviously read as a standalone but I would recommend you read the first novel first!
Travis “Cash” Sinclair left Bourbon Street all those years ago and never looked back. That was until the president of the Deacons died in a motorcycle accident, to say his good byes. What should have been just a quick stay turns into weeks after he learns that he and his “brothers” each got a piece of the clubhouse that was willed to them. Cash wants to sell the property as soon as possible and head back home. He does not want anything to do with the biker life anymore, he is now a successful business man who wears suits instead of leathers but things change after he goes back to the old clubhouse to check things out. Let me tell you surprise does not even cover how he feels at what happened to the old clubhouse. He saw it turned into a funky art gallery but what surprises him the most is the owner of the lovely art gallery.
Billie was not born in NOLA but actually she ended up there after fleeing a bad marriage. She always dreamed of living in Nola and owning her own art gallery amidst the bright buildings, colourful array of people and the legends. She is living her dreams, well that is until Travis “Cash” Sinclair struts into her gallery. Cash is sexy, bossy and as you know one of the original bikers of the Deacons of Bourbon Street. Then she also finds out he is her landlord and he plans on selling the gallery Billie has started. Billie is obviously stunned but she is not as stunned until he announces he is her new roommate while in town. Billie refuses to give up her gallery without a fight but her gallery might not be the only this she may loses with a man like Cash.
These characters were explosive together which made for a very enjoyable read and I would love to reread it.
