Tammy, Publisher’s Weekly
Love on a Harley, is an amazing romantic anthology featuring six
amazing stories by six very talented ladies. Each story was
heartwarming, tear jerking, and so perfect. I got tied to each one
wanting them to continue on forever. Lost love, rekindling love, and
learning to love are all expressed within these pages beautifully. I
couldn’t ask for a better romance anthology, each author brings that
sensual, longing sort of love that every woman dreams of. Great job
Crystal, Crystal Reviews
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 wee interesting. What
could possibly be better than six hunky alpha men and their Harley
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.

Secrets and Lies
by Rebecca Andrews
Wess McKade is ex-Special Forces with his own security business.
When Wess receives a call from his friend, "Bobby" Preston, he finds
himself agreeing to protect Bobby's sister, Ella. It seems that
Bobby is being blackmailed for something that happened ten years ago
at a party (involving all three of them). Unless Bobby pays, Ella
will be harmed. That night at the party had been the last time Wess
saw Ella. Could Wess make Ella forgive him for disappearing?
**** Great story, but I could tell a lot was cut out (so it could be
a short story). Because of this, it did not flow smoothly. But the
plot is really good. This one deserves to be a full-length novel.
Leader of the Pack by Debi Farr
Charlotte "Charlie" Fox is en route to a Come-As-You-Aren't party,
dressed as a call girl, when her car gets a flat tire on a country
road. After managing to fall into a ditch, she is rescued by Derek
***** This very short story is fun, witty, and humorous. Well done!
Hitting Paydirt by Billie Warren Chai
"MaryVic" Abbott may look fragile, but she is anything but. She is a
drilling engineer for an oil rig outside of town. Due to a series of
(ahem) unfortunate incidents happening to the oil well, the team is
behind schedule. MaryVic is seriously considering skipping the
rehearsal for her brother's (Jack) wedding so she can oversee the
drilling. That is, until Marine Major Craig Ferguson shows up,
tosses her over his shoulder, and takes her to it. The attraction
between MaryVic and Craig is as hot as ever. They are ready to take
a chance on love, but first they must deal with an oil rival who is
out to cause MaryVic some serious trouble.
**** From the beginning this story overflows with romance, family
ties, and danger. But due to the story having to be short, the
danger has no time to build up and I never felt as though it were
real. This plot and cast of characters deserve a full-length novel.
Teaching Love by Patricia Frank
"Jen" Marlowe is returning from a day of skiing on Christmas Eve
when her car hits black ice and ends up in a ditch. All auto shops
have already closed. Dan Giovanni gives Jen a lift to her home just
before a snow storm hits. The pair become snowed in and afterward
begins dating. However, Dan cannot give into his heart's desire for
Jen until he can come to terms with his feelings of guilt about
something in his past.
***** This one is pure romance, must like a Harlequin Romance novel,
and threatened to dance upon my heart strings. *****
The Man Rides a Harley by Diane Davis White
Susannah Davis has never rode on a motorcycle before and is
terrified to be sitting on the back of a Harley during a parade.
"Duke" Mansfield, the cold and rough-looking biker, takes her to his
parents' house to clean up after it. This is when she learns that
her twin, Samantha, has already discussed Susannah's problem with
the three Mansfields. Susannah is an accountant, accused of
embezzlement. Duke may very well be her only hope.
***** A well written story, even though Duke is too cold, arrogant,
and rude almost the entire length of it. In my opinion, this is
another tale that deserves to be a full-length novel. I believe that
I could have come to actually like Duke if the author were allowed
more pages to slowly melt the chips off his shoulder. *****
Bad to the Bone by Deborah MacGillivray
Twenty years ago Jocelyn Bouchard had been the granddaughter of
Carrie Boivin Bouchard. Jocelyn, on the top of society, had been
untouchable for someone on the very bottom of the ranking status,
such as "Gabe" Sinclair. When Gabe rode out of town on his
motorcycle he never looked back. If he had, he would have seen young
Jocelyn crying on the balcony of Watch Hill, Dame Carrie's mansion.
Now Dane Carrie is dead. Her elegant mansion on the hill is closed
up. Gabe, now a self-made millionaire, returns to purchase Watch
Hill from the only living Bouchard, Jocelyn. In this magical town,
where a certain restaurant's jukebox has a mind of its own, Jocelyn
and Gabe will get a second chance.
***** This restaurant seems to be stuck in the 1960's and the
jukebox could very well be sentient. I definitely feel as though
ghosts are watching Gabe and Jocelyn. Three interesting cats break
the tension and spookiness with their antics. (One fat cat wears its
own leather jacket and helmet as he rides with Gabe on the bike.)
This haunting romance is the purr-fect ending for this wonderful
anthology of novellas! *****
