The Darkest Flame by Christina Lee


Vaughn O’Keefe has been part owner of the Hog’s Den for years. 
Privy to plenty of Disciples of the Road business, he’s never been more ruffled as when a new recruit named “Smoke” walks through the door. 
Something about the man gets his blood pumping, but he knows to keep his preferences under wraps around the club.

“Smoke” Callahan has done a couple of rehab stints and is finally clean, thanks to help from the Disciples. 
He’s on the right path and isn’t about to get sidetracked, no matter how much the guy who manages the bar gets beneath his skin. 
Besides, his last relationship with a man left him scared, alone, and with a nightmare of an addiction.

When the Hog’s Den becomes shorthanded, and Smoke is ordered to help out the one man he can’t have, his longing for the bartender reaches blistering proportions. 
Vaughn figures a night together should be enough to satisfy their mutual attraction. But neither banks on just how scorching hot it might be.

As Smoke’s past unravels and the one person he hopes never to lay eyes on again messes with all he holds sacred, it’s time to involve the Disciples. 
Problem is, he’ll have to risk his membership, his heart, and his own hide to keep everyone he cares about safe​


The biker world isn't always a hearts and flowers, open and accepting place. They usually don't stray from their norm. 

Both Smoke and Vaughn struggle with their openness in the club. 
They also struggle with their attraction to each other.

There's a somewhat melancholy feel to this story, without the actual  tears.
Imagine being a big, rough and tough biker, in a biker gang and being bi-sexual. Having to keep your sexual preferences to yourself.
Both of these men finally feel as though they belong somewhere, with a 'family' of sorts, yet they can't be their true selves. That sucks!
And their true selves? Lusting after each other!

"Maybe people should be free to love whoever and however they want." "And it shouldn't be anybody's business."

There's heat, there's steam and there's get down on your knees and take me sex.
There's also mystery and intrigue. 
Something is going on, someone is threatening one of their own. 

This story to me, ultimately is about discovery and acceptance.
Feeling part of a family, a brotherhood and not wanting to mess that up.
Finding your happily ever after, a place where you belong and they've both found that in each other.

Rough and tough bikers want love too!
