Phoenix is hot but the bikers are even hotter and Samantha finds this out firsthand after partnering with her cousin to run Dr. Doug’s Mobile Dyno. Spurned by an ex-fiancĂ© and resolved to taking care of her aging father, romance is the last thing Samantha’s looking for.

Along comes opportunity in the form of Linc Montgomery, a tough, business-savvy, ex-Harley racer and new owner of Full Throttle Custom Cycles in Phoenix. Linc is used to having gorgeous women fall at his feet. When he meets Samantha and agrees to contract her company, he quickly realizes she isn’t one of those brainless bimbos he normally dates.

Samantha knows more about servicing Harley bikes than she does about feminine wiles. She's independant, stubborn and trusts men about as much as she would an angry rattler. Linc Montgomery is a man who thrives on a challenge. When Candace Morehouse puts these two firecrackers together it's inevitable the sparks will fly.

With a full complement of strong secondary characters, Ms Morehouse steers her hero and heroine along the very rocky road to a HEA. But it is the situations, challenges, threats and dangers she puts in their way that grabs the readers' attention. Both main characters represent people we meet everyday, people the reader can equate with. They are stong, they are flawed. They have lessons to learn.

For Harley Bike fans this book is a must. For the rest of us, the book stands on the strength of the characters and the the unusual environment. It's a fantastic, entertaining read that I highly recommend.
