Book Spotlight: The Devil's Ride (Sex & Mayhem Series, #2) by K. A. Merikan...

The Devil's Ride (Sex & Mayhem Series, #2) by K. A. Merikan....

Hop on the bitch seat and ride with Tooth, the feared vice president of the Coffin Nails motorcycle club. No one wants to end up in his dentist’s chair, deep underneath the club compound, but his bed? That might be another matter. Lucifer, the bastard son of Tooth’s friend, is used to doing things his way, and being under supervision of the most intimidating man he ever met is the last thing he wants. At least until he understands that there’s no place safer than the mattress at the feet of Tooth’s bed.

I enjoy stories with plenty sexual tension that for one reason or another can’t be resolved right away. That’s the case with The Devil’s Ride. Tooth and Luci can’t, or rather may not be together for a variety of reasons, and with danger lurking right behind the corner, the stakes are getting higher with every chapter. 

The book is out December 5th, and if you want to know more, here’s the blurb and an excerpt :) There’s also a pinterest with some inspiration for the book:

Sometimes, even the smallest details can count. In our newest book, The Devil’s Ride, one character’s blood type plays a major role in the plot. When talking about those matters, people tend to focus on blood groups (A, B, AB, O) as they are associated with particular characteristics and even dietary needs. But blood is also grouped according to the Rh antigen, which might be present (positive) or not (negative). Those two blood grouping systems are extremely important as they allow us to transfuse blood without a high risk of killing the patient, as a bad blood match can lead to a quick and painful death.

Lucifer’s blood is O negative, which means that he’s among the 5 - 9% of the population, depending on the source. This blood type is one of the rarest, but that’s not what makes it special. Because O negative lacks both A, B, and Rh antigens, it can be transfused to any person. That’s why O negative is frequently carried by emergency helicopters and given to people whose state is too critical to wait for proper blood testing, as well as to newborn babies - it’s the easiest to tolerate for an underdeveloped immune system.

Sadly, being O negative has one major disadvantage - people with this blood type generally cannot be transfused any other blood type, and same goes for organ transplants. 

Here’s what’s Luci’s perspective on the matter (Excerpt from the book):

The nurse smiled at him again. “You know, in some places people believe blood is an indicator of character. It’s even used in matchmaking,” she said, clearly to distract him, but he went with it anyway.
“Mine’s O negative. It’s so rare no one would want a match with me.”

--- You don’t fuck with the club president's son. ---

Vice President of the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club. On a neverending quest for vengeance. The last thing he needs is becoming a permanent babysitter for a male hooker.

Fallen. Lost. Alone.

After a childhood filled with neglect and abuse, followed by his mother’s suicide, Lucifer set out into the world alone. There was nothing for him out there other than taking it one day at a time. As the bastard son of the Coffin Nails club president, Lucifer never got much fatherly love. So when the Nails show up at the strip joint Lucifer works in, the last thing he expects is to be put in the custody of Tooth, the Nails Vice President famous for his gruesome interrogation techniques. The man proves to be the sexiest beast Lucifer has ever met. He’s also older, straight, and an itch Luci can’t ever scratch.

Tooth’s life came to a halt twelve years ago. His lover got brutally murdered, police never found the perpetrators, and all leads were dead ends. To find peace and his own justice, Tooth joined the Coffin Nails, but years on, he’s gotten nowhere with the case, yet still lives on with the burning fire for revenge.
Babysitting a deeply scarred teenager with a talent for disappearing is the last thing on his bucket list. He promised himself to never get attached to someone like him again. To make sure the openly gay boy is safe in the clubhouse, Tooth is stuck keeping an eye on him. The big, blue, attention seeking gaze is drawing Tooth in, but fucking the president’s son is a complete no-go, even when both their feelings go beyond lust.

What Tooth doesn’t know is that Lucifer might hold the key to the closure Tooth so desperately needs.

Book #1

K. A. Merikan are a team of writers, who are taken for sisters with surprising regularity. Kat’s the mean sergeant and survival specialist of the duo, never hesitating to kick Agnes’s ass when she’s slacking off. Her memory works like an easy-access catalogue, which allows her to keep up with both book details and social media. Also works as the emergency GPS. Agnes is the Merikan nitpicker, usually found busy with formatting and research. Her attention tends to be scattered, and despite pushing thirty, she needs to apply makeup to buy alcohol. Self-proclaimed queen of the roads.

They love the weird and wonderful, stepping out of the box, and bending stereotypes both in life and books. When you pick up a Merikan book, one thing you can be sure of - it will be full of surprises.

Inspiration never failed them so far, but they are ready to hunt down the exotic and unique. Kat and Agnes are pursuing their dream of becoming full fledged virtual nomads. Having gotten rid of their apartment and with most of their belongings put in storage, they are choosing their own path in life, ready to experience all the world has to offer while working on their books.
