Man‛s best friend has always been said to be his dog. Women know differently . . . there is nothing more dear to a man‛s heart than the roar of the true beast of the jungle. . . his Harley. Makes it hard for a woman to compete. Some ladies find if you can‛t beat them, then join them and teach the lads a trick or two.

The roaring thunder of powerful engines–and emotions!

Come along for the ride of your life . . .if you dare!

Love on a Harley is an anthology comprised of six delightful tales of love, alpha men and the Harleys they all seem to love.

In "Secrets and Lies," Wess McKade and Ella Preston haven’t seen each other for years. Suddenly, ten years later, the two find themselves thrust together again. Will they fight temptation, or give in to their hearts’ desires?

In "Leader of the Pack," straight-laced Charlotte Fox decided to let her hair down for her friend’s party, but a flat tire along the way thrusts her into the arms of Derek Eiken – bad boy biker; or something a little more? She can’t wait to find out!

In "Hitting Paydirt," roughneck Mary Victoria has long fought her attraction to her brother’s best friend, Craig. However, when Craig shows up at her oil rig, throws her over his shoulder, and takes her for a ride on his Harley, she has to wonder if she wants to fight her emotions or just go with the flow.

In "Teaching Love," teacher and widow Jen wrecks her car on a snowy night. Rescued by a Harley riding tree surgeon, her life is about to change. As Dan fills the ache in her heart, Jen finds herself wondering if it just might be possible to find love again after all.

In "The Man Rides a Harley," Susannah finds herself in a unique situation… long terrified of Harleys and the men who ride them, she’s allowed her sister to talk her into riding on the back of one of the big chrome monsters with its owner, Duke. To make matters worse, her over-active bladder once again gets the best of her… will her humiliation never end? Duke has some issues of his own to work through. Will the two be able to heal each other and find love?

In "Bad to the Bone," Gabriel has returned to the small sleepy town of his youth, unsure what to expect or what force drove him back to a place he’d sworn to avoid at all costs. Divorced and trying to unload the family home, Jocelyn is more than a little surprised to find Gabriel sitting on his Harley in the driveway. Will the bad boy and the princess finally get a chance to find love?

Anthologies are wonderful things… it’s always a plus to get more than one story in a book, especially when they’re good stories. The six talented women who wrote the stories that make up Love on a Harley should be proud of themselves. The writing styles were similar enough that the stories flowed from one to another. The characters were easy to like and the stories were interesting. What could possibly be better than six hunky alpha men and their Harley motorcycles?

As a woman who has enjoyed the occasional ride on one of man’s greatest inventions, I can say that the women did a good job describing the feel of riding on the impressive machines. Each of the men had that “bad boy” feel, but hid a good heart. The women were strong, yet pining for the love of a good man. I can honestly say that I would recommend this book hands down to anyone who enjoys alpha males.
