Rough Justice

Sarah Castille. St. Martin’s Paperbacks, $7.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-1-250-05660-3

Most bikers are hobbyists or businessmen, but Army vet Jagger is that rare bird: a motorcycle-riding ruthless criminal. As president of the Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club, which dominates the illegal gun trade in Montana, it’s his responsibility to deliver violence and vigilante justice to protect his and the club’s interests. Personal relationships offer too many vulnerabilities to risk. But Jagger is surprised by the lengths he will go to dominate, protect, and win the heart of Arianne, whom he captures after a rival club burns down his headquarters. Tough Arianne may have been raised in the biker world, but all she wants is to escape to a civilian life, regardless of the protection and sex Jagger offers. Castille dials up the biker slang to 11, and at times it’s hard to root for a couple enmeshed in an illegal, misogynist lifestyle. Even Castille’s fans will wish that some of the lighter moments from her Redemption series had snuck into this rough, tough contemporary. [em](Feb.) [/em]
