I’m the head of the Hell Raisers MC. I have a code of honor, even if I keep it hidden. So when I see some of my guys roughing up a runaway, I step in. I just don’t expect to want her for myself.

People think I’m crazy. They’re right. They just don’t know why. Nobody knows the truth about me, but she sees right through me with her big blue eyes.

I’m reckless and wild. But when I see her, I want something different. For the first time in nearly a decade, I start thinking about what happens after.

After I catch my brother’s killer.

She doesn’t seem to care that I’m a merciless criminal who will stop at nothing for revenge. She softens me, and that’s a luxury I can’t afford.

She’s the most dangerous thing for a guy like me, but I can’t seem to stay away.

I gave up everything to find out the truth about what happened to my brother. It’s been years since his murder, and it’s taken me that long to get this close. I need to end it, once and for all.

My demons are big, but when she gets in the way, I find out my need for her is even bigger.

Hard Road is Book 4 in the Untouchables MC series. It can be read as a standalone. There is no cheating and a guaranteed happily ever after.

 Read an excerpt 


When two childhood sweethearts find themselves together after years apart, does their romance have a chance to be rekindled now that he’s a duke and she’s a governess? Olivia Drake’s new Unlikely Duchesses series begins with The Duke I Once Knew, where first love is always the sweetest…

For years, Abigail Linton devoted herself to caring for her parents and her siblings’ children. Now, eager to create a life of her own, Abby seizes upon a position as a governess on a neighboring estate. Unfortunately, her absentee employer is Maxwell Bryce, the Duke of Rothwell, the notorious rake who once broke her youthful heart. But since he hasn’t set foot on his estate for fifteen years, Abby assumes she’ll never have to lay eyes on him ever again. Then, from out of nowhere, Max appears. He is stunned to come face to face with the girl next door he fell for years ago―before he went away, and she stopped writing to him. . .even though Abby swears that he is the one who left her without a word. Could it be that this spirited, witty spinster has won Max’s heart all over again―and that they may have a second chance at love?

My Thoughts:

When two childhood sweethearts find themselves together after years apart, does their romance have a chance to be rekindled now that he’s a duke and she’s a governess?
Misunderstandings abound in this lovely second chance romance. Communications between our hero and heroine were misdirected so when neither one heard from the other they rightly or wrongly decided that there was nothing to be pursued.
Now they are grown and he has come into his title as Duke. Far from what they were as childhood sweethearts this interesting pair are still very attracted to each other.
His sister needs a new governess and she wants the position. Her family takes her for granted and making her own way is just the ticket to get her out of that mess and as they say from the frying pan right into the fire!
This book is well written and the characters are engaging. Olivia Drake has done a masterful job with this second chance romance title.
I gave this book 4.5(rounded up to 5) of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development. It contains some sizzling intimate scenes and gets a medium intimate rating.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book through NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
