Spotlight of Wings of Diablo by Rae B. Lake

Wire
Wings of Diablo MC Book 1
by Rae B. Lake
Genre: MC Romantic Suspense
Wire-
I am the pain manager at the Wings of Diablo MC Club. What’s that
mean? It means that if my brothers need information they call on me
to get it out of you. You should see the art I can create with a blow
torch or a serrated blade or my favorite, barbed wire. I have been
known to have a cold fearless heart. To stand in the middle of a gun
fight without a care in the world, tear flesh from bodies and not
even blink when my mark would scream and cry. Nothing reached me, I
was numb to the world. Chaos was my meditation. That was until I met
Keeley. Now one small piece of false information, one wrong victim
and one war later she is completely under my skin.
Keeley-
He just showed up in my backyard pointing a gun in my face and bleeding
profusely. If I would have known at that precise moment my world
would turn on its head I would have never let him in. I left my home
to get away from the violence and the wars yet here I am back in a
world I don’t want to be in. I would run but no one excites me like
Dillon does, no one protects me like Dillon does, and no one makes me
scream in pleasure like him either. As hard as his life is and even
with my own life in danger there is no where I would rather be than
in his arms, I am his.
Archer
Wings of Diablo Book 2
Archer-
I am the master marksman at the Wings of Diablo MC Club. Any target my
brothers need me to take down, I will. I am a magician with a fire
arm no matter the class, from the small and simple Glock 36 to the
powerful .44 Magnum, the big bad shotgun to the sleek and sexy M2010.
I have been known to be stoic and calculated. To lay above the rest
and smile as each bullet sailed through my target. Once you were in
my sights, you go down for the long nap. I used to believe that my
fate was sealed by the bullet and my gun, come to find out my life
would be turned on its head by Daria. A woman in the wrong place at
the wrong time. A woman who is seared into my soul.
Daria-
My whole life I stayed to myself, never wanted to get anyone upset or be
a burden to those around me. So when my roommates strong arm me into
going to a party at the Rolling Cobras MC Club house I try to stay as
far away from the action as possible. Not that it did me any good, my
favorite shirt was ruined, I got hit on by a man missing his two
front teeth, oh and I got shot in the chest. Talk about a party.
There was one good thing that came from that horrible experience, the
hospital set up a trauma counselor, Archer. There is something about
his haunted eyes that makes me believe that I can trust again. No one
makes my pulse race like he does, makes my body surrender like he
does. Even with secrets all around him I have no choice but to submit
to him.
Rae is a daydreamer, nurse, bookworm, nature enthusiast, wife, momma,
animal activist and an optimist. She has lived her entire life in NYC
and loves to travel with her family. She believes that sweets should
have a larger piece of the nutritional pyramid and that Buffy the
Vampire Slayer was one of the best TV shows ever invented. When she
is not working as a nurse in her community, she can either be found
reading, writing, or taking a walk while listening to music. She has
been writing books in her mind for as long as she can remember but
decided that maybe there were others out in the world that would find
joy in the words she would put down on the page.

First Lines Friday #10

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. I first saw this on Life of A Literary Nerd  and decided this would be fun to start adding to my blog. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

*Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page

*Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first

*Finally… reveal the book!

Exact Time Unknown

When the stairs leading down to the basement creaked, the young woman struggled to her feet. She pressed one hand to her very pregnant belly and gripped a metal pipe with the other as she listened to the steady, purposeful steps approaching the locked door.

Cut and Run by Mary Burton

Mary Burton is a thriller writer who knows how to capture her readers. This book was suspenseful with exciting twists and turns.

Back Cover

Trauma victims are not new to medical examiner Faith McIntyre, but this one is different. The unconscious woman clinging to life after a hit and run is FBI agent Macy Crow. What the woman from Quantico was doing in a dark alley after midnight is just one mystery. The other is more unsettling: Macy is Faith’s mirror image—the twin sister she never knew she had.

Faith knew that she was adopted, but now she’s finding that her childhood concealed other secrets. Following the trail of clues Macy left behind, Faith and Texas Ranger Mitchell Hayden make a shocking discovery on an isolated country ranch—a burial ground for three women who disappeared thirty years before.

They weren’t the only victims in a killer’s twisted plot. And they won’t be the last.

As the missing pieces of Faith’s and Macy’s dark lives snap into place, Faith is becoming more terrified by what she sees—and by what she must do to save her sister and herself from the past.

Get To Know Author Sheila L. Jackson:

How does your faith fit into your books? 

There is no way that I could write Christian Fiction if my faith didn’t play a huge part in it. I have faced many obstacles in my life and it shows through my writing. The characters I created each have to face some type of difficulties in their lives, but it is their faith that brings them through.

What is your favorite positive saying or motivational phrase? 

 I coined this one myself years ago to help keep me inspired, “I want more out of life than just to exist.”

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Yes. Never allow anyone to extinguish your dreams. God anointed you with the gift, not others.

How much of yourself is hidden in the characters in your book? 

 A lot, some are lovable, witty, corny, dramatic, and aggressive. I have all these characteristics rolled up in one body, each shows up in my life when needed.

What is the most pivotal point of a writer’s life?

For me, when readers express how my stories helped them through difficult situations in their lives.  It’s a sign of validation, knowing that the words God has inspired me to write is reaching and helping others.

What do you like the most about being an author?

Knowing that lives are changed and life lessons are learned through the stories that I tell, is a blessing as well as rewarding. Whenever I want to give up on writing, there is always a reader that will send me a letter about how my books have changed his or her life. It fuels my spirit to continue on this uncertain journey as a writer.

Why did you write, Chasing A Dream?

For others to know that there is no age limit when wanting to start on a new career path. When God gives you the vision, it’s for you. Stop looking for validation from those who cannot see it.

A family…a career…a dream…can a woman really have it all?

Florence Kinkaid is content as a small town clothing designer and seamstress. Married to her high school sweetheart and the mother of two sets of twins, she’s certain her life is complete. But deep in her heart a forgotten dream waits. A dream she tries to ignore. When a noted fashion mogul undertakes a nationwide contest to discover America’s next fashion designer, Flo wonders…what if?

Flo secretly enters the contest and is thrilled when she is named one of the top five finalists. When she tells her husband William, she’s shocked to find opposition in her own home. William wants things to stay as they are and does his best to discourage her from leaving. He calls her opportunity a pipe dream. Hurt, but determined to get a second chance at her dream, Flo decides to prove her husband wrong and follow her heart. But in doing so, will it cost her more than she’s willing to pay?

Excerpt:

“William, we need to get away, just the two of us,” she said, seductively, staring at him chomping down on his food. He never looked up at her, making her feel some type of way. “There is a life outside of Gomer, you know.”

Chewing in rapid motion, he commented, “People are going crazy with these mass shootings and driving trucks with bombs into crowds, baby. We need to wait until things get better, then we’ll see the world.”

She rolled her eyes, tired of hearing the same old yadda, yadda.

“And besides, we can’t afford it right now.” He pushed his plate forward, sucked his teeth, and said, “Are you going through…um, what they call it?”

She cut her eyes over at him, annoyed, knowing what he was about to say.

“A mid-life crisis.”

“Are you serious, Will? It’s been years since the two of us have gone anywhere alone. And no, I’m not going through a mid-life crisis. I’m tired of coming in last place in this house.”

She stood from her seat, hands on hip, continuing her complaint.

“It’s bad enough that I’ve had to put my dreams on hold. And so have you.” She didn’t mean for that to slip out, but his cheapskate ways made her lash out and say what she’d been holding in.

“Look, I have to go.” He pushed from the table, wiping his mouth.  He tried leaning in to kiss her goodbye.

She winced, turning her face away from him.

He tried once more to touch her but she remained stiff as a board. “Flo, we’re not kids anymore and we’re certainly not getting any younger. It’s time we let go of these pipe dreams.”
