Title: Damaged & Dangerous
Series: The Sacred Hearts MC VI
Author: A.J. Downey
Release Date: September 27, 2015

She’s Damaged…
Dani Broussard never imagined that her life would turn out like this. She always thought that her grandfather would be there for her into adulthood and that her high school sweetheart, Jared, would be the man she would marry. That isn’t what happened though. Instead, her grandfather got sick and passed away before Dani saw the age of nineteen. It was just her and Jared until he hooked up with a local MC, The Suicide Kings… Then it was just her. Pig-Pen claimed her body, rules her life, but he would never hold her heart. Kept because of her looks and a particular set of skills unique only to her, Dani has been with The Suicide Kings for the last three years… three long damaging years. She hates it, all of it, the pain the humiliation, the fear… and as strong as Dani is, as clever as she can be, she is quickly finding that death may be the kinder, gentler option rather than live through any more of this hell.
He’s Dangerous…
Red-XIII is, and always will be, a Sacred Hearts man. But for now, he’s a Suicide Kings prospect. Tasked with providing intelligence on the King’s inner workings to his real club, Thirteen has been slowly, quietly and carefully dismantling the King’s operation from the inside out. The situation is dangerous, good thing Thirteen is a dangerous guy but even he can’t be everywhere at once and a couple of missteps have cost the Sacred Hearts dearly. Doubly determined to finish this with no more wreckage or damage to the SHMC, Thirteen is blindsided by his heart when he lays eyes on Dani. A pretty, little thing with long black hair and striking blue eyes. She slays him with one look from her damaged soul and now Thirteen has tasked himself with two missions… Take down The Suicide Kings and get both Dani and himself out alive.
For now those missions run parallel to each other but what happens if they ever end up at odds? The bigger question is, how can he get close to the VP’s Ol’ Lady as a Prospect and not get them both burned?

“How the hell you get that?” he demanded.

“Came through on my personal cell, someone mass-texted it. I have so many goddamned contacts, I didn’t realize I still had anybody from the club in it. No worries, my cover is secure. No one saw shit. I don’t leave things like that lyin’ around.”
D grunted into the phone, “Cops‘re still sittin’ on us. They still watching you?” he asked.
“If by ‘you’, you mean The Suicide Kings, then yeah. Unmarked tan cargo van when we pulled in from the run. It’s a good thing Gordy’s a paranoid fucker and sweeps for listening devices on the regular. Pretty sure they only got visual. They’ll get tired soon enough and fuck off onto something bigger and better.”
“Yeah. With our history, they ain’t investigatin’ or cryin’ too hard about our plight.” Dragon sounded both tired and downright pissed off at that. I didn’t blame him. Chandra deserved a lot better. Reave, too! Don’t get me wrong. But as a brother, you expect this shit to happen. No women and no children had been the SHMC motto from the beginning, even before our reformed ways. We did some gnarly and seriously rancid shit back in the day. Guns, drugs, gambling – you name it. But we always left the women and children out of it.

No prostituting, no hitting. Rape was liable to get your dick chopped off – which is why, no matter how fucking hard, no matter how often the Suicide Kings tried to get me to join in on one of their trains, it was no fucking dice. Because very rarely, if ever, were the chicks they were fucking at all clear-headed or into it.

It bothered me, a whole fuck of a lot, the way these animals treated their women and I found myself spilling it all. I told D everything I’d seen going on, everything I could garner about their operation, in effect, unburdening my soul from all the awful shit I’d been a party to in the name of the greater good. In the name of spying out our enemy. He was quiet for a long time on the other end and finally let out a sigh that made him sound like he felt every single year and every single mile. It’d been weeks since I last talked to him beyond a short text. The deeper I got in with these fuckers, the more I was around them, the less opportunity there was for full on communication.
“Do you need out?” he asked.
My thoughts drifted to Raccoon, to her sharp and calculating stare as she’d passed me my face mask.

“No man, I’m good. My work ain’t over yet. Not by a long, flat, mile. It’ll be done when every one of these fuckers is in the ground and the Suicide Kings ain’t nothin’ but the dust of fuckin’ memory.”

Do you like to read in the dark?

Another quarter, another season, another book selling event! This time it’s just in time for my very favorite holiday, so I would like to welcome you all a little early to…

On tap for this event are several amazing authors, myself - A.J. Downey, Jeffrey Cook, Lee French, Sechin Tower, Tina Shelton, and a whole lot more. We’ll get to everyone in just a few.

Once again, the AFK Elixirs & Eatery will be hosting and as far as venues go, this one has it all! Great food, amazing atmosphere, games, and a certain notoriety for not only welcoming you, but inviting you to stay for a long while and get to know everyone.

The AFK E&E is conveniently located off Highway 167 at:

3750 E Valley Rd.
Renton, WA 98057

Reading in the Dark will run from 2:00pm to 9:00pm in the back left of the restaurant. Just come in the front door, turn left past the Fireplace, carry on past the game rental area and you’ll find us! If that’s too difficult, just follow the bloody footprints on the floor…

We’ll have a lot on offer back there, just have a look!

The Fireworks Novellas – The Fireworks novellas are short (about 20-35K words) and spicy, duel POV New Adult romances with a touch of suspense. They all center around holidays throughout the year.

The Fireworks novellas feature real characters facing real concerns that New Adults face – money problems, boring jobs, college choices etc. They have sensitive rather than aggressive heroes and strong but flawed heroines. The sex is always consensual and responsible, though sometimes a bit impulsive! The suspense elements of the stories come from current issues such as drugs, sex trafficking and cyber-stalking. The Fireworks series include racial, cultural, religious, gender or body diversity in the main couple as well as supporting characters.

The Vikings of Vinland Saga – The Vikings of Vinland Saga follows the story of twin sisters Katla and Gull Grímsdóttir, and their slave, Frey, as they escape from their brutal father and find their destinies in Medieval Europe and America.

The Sacred Hearts MC series – Hot, alpha male bikers, a few damsels in distress, some really steamy love stories… In this series, the good guys wear black and the white knights’ armor is leather rather than metal.

I Am The Alpha – The hero of this one puts the damsel in distress. Not only that, he turns furry once a month. Can William Reese, son of the murdered Alpha of the Pacific Northwest Territory make things right? He’s going to try, by kidnapping the daughter of the Pack’s sworn enemy… It was the perfect plan until it wasn’t. He never counted on falling in love with her.

Airs & Graces – This is not a romance. Addy’s having a record bad morning which goes from bad to worse when she walks into work to find her boss dying on the floor. Now she’s entrenched in the mother of all supernatural power struggles… What do you do when both Heaven & Hell want you dead and the only being on your side is The Angel of Free Will, who, by all accounts, just finds you to be a nuisance?

Dawn of Steam – Dawn of Steam is a trilogy of alt-history, emergent Steampunk epistolary novels. It chronicles the adventures of Gregory Conan Watts and the crew of the airship Dame Fortuna: war heroes, respectable ladies, disreputable entertainers, and a wilderness guide of debated sanity. From 1815 to 1819, they face the historic Year Without a Summer, dangers on six continents, and vast imperial conspiracies in a world in transition between the Napoleonic wars and a new age of enlightenment.

Mina Cortez: From Bouquets to Bullets – She never said “I want to join the Secret Police when I grow up.” Mina Cortez hadn’t even known there were secret police. But after trading her ambition to be a ballerina for resignation that she’d be a florist, she found herself neither – riding through a post-post cataclysmic Seattle on the trail of smugglers, kidnappers and murderers.

Sound & Fury: Shakespeare Goes Punk – Punk Writers present a most curious and notable book! Sound & Fury: Shakespeare Goes Punk. We took the bard and shook him up with the punk genres of literature. Steampunk, cyberpunk, anything punk! Find renditions of such tales as A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Merchant of Venice, The Winter’s Tale and much more. All decidedly more exciting and more adventuresome than their original inspirations!

The Fair Folk Chronicles – Normality was always a struggle for Megan O’Reilly, a 16 year old artist with ADHD. But when she finds out her long-lost father is a Faerie king – and now more lost than usual – normality isn’t even an option. Somehow, living in a faerie story is a lot more complicated than Megan would have ever thought.

The Mad Science Institute – What happens 100 years after Nikola Tesla founded a secret school for mad scientists? Robots! Rail guns! Jet packs! Lizard monsters! Fist fights! Doomsday machines!

If you need more explosions and mayhem in your life, come join the Mad Science Institute!

Audacious & Capricious – Sixteen year old Raphaelle is that girl who says the wrong thing, who crosses the wrong person, who has the wrong hair, the wrong body, the wrong attitude, the totally wrong clothes. She can’t do anything right, but in these two verse novels readers get to learn from Ella's mistakes.

The Frail Days – Sixteen-year-old drummer Stella, guitarist Jacob and bassist Miles need a wild singer for their old-school rock band. When they discover nerdy Tamara Donnelly, who nails the national anthem at a baseball game, Stella is not convinced Tamara's sound is right for the band. Stella wants to turn Tamara into a rock goddess, but Tamara proves to be a confident performer who has her own ideas about music and what it means to be epic cool.

When their band, the Frail Days, starts to build a local following, Stella and Tamara clash over the direction the band should take, forcing them to consider what true musical collaboration means.

The Gray Hat Series – In order to evade a long prison sentence, a con artist and a vigilante hacker must work together with the law to bring down a circle of body thieves that almost no one knows exists.

Dragons In Pieces - Bobby's life isn’t awesome, but he’s okay with it. One thrown punch cascades into a series of events that culminate with him discovering he has a superpower. A weird superpower. Not only that, but he’s just one of thirty-five new superheroes. How did it happen? Why are there men in dark suits trying to grab them all? What good are hundreds of tiny robot dragons?

The Fallen - A fortune teller and a Seer, Chavali has the gift of prophecy and a growing talent with crafting illusions. Jaded and cynical, nothing surprises her...until it does. Fate drags her kicking and screaming into a battle for the future of her people and forces her to deal with far too many idiots.

Damsel In Distress - Swept into a high fantasy adventure that may save her even as it damns her, Sabetia must dig deep to find the courage to persevere--and to survive. She'll face demons of every kind imaginable as she learns that sometimes, damsels have to save themselves. Because no one else will.

Girls Can't Be Knights - The Spirit Knights have been a boys’ club for a long time–over a thousand years. No one, not even Claire, believes it when she shows all the signs of becoming one. Worse yet, she has to dive into this ghost-hunting job before she can get access to the Knights’ toys. Fortunately, she has Justin to learn from. Brash and prone to dumb ideas, he can handle taking her under his wing. With a little luck, they both might survive long enough for her to learn it all.

Al-Kabar - Without a Sultan, corrupt Fire Dancers and their pompous Caliphs abuse power and wage pointless wars across the parched sands of Serescine. The Waters choose only one Champion to stand against them, only one woman to serve justice on those who consider themselves above it. Fakhira might just settle for revenge. If she can survive long enough to dish it out.

The Flower Fang Series - In the Kin-Jegera Empire the strength of your magic or your claws determines your destiny - too bad our heroes are short on both!

Prince Se’ls, one of the magical flower Kin and only child of Queen Se’uan, has a terrible secret – he has no magic. Forced by his mother, the Queen, to tour the empire to search for his magical companion, Se’ls is terrified of returning home empty handed.

Arara, long-furred runt and joke of her pack, is dreading the upcoming hunt, where the young Jegera show off their strength by taking down one of the fearsome armored hukra by claw alone. Arara is terrified that her superstitious pack will tear her apart if they learn her secret, that she was born telepathic and telekinetic.

With assassins and dark plots threatening the empire, Prince Se’ls and Arara must band together to save it, or perhaps to destroy it.


Well that's the full list of authors we will have on offer on October 10th, as well as a little taste of what they are bringing to their tables!

Speaking of tastes, the AFK has a lot of fabulous food and drink enough to whet any appetite or slake any thirst, so come on down, peruse some books, stay for a while and have some lunch or dinner and come play a game or two! If mother nature gets her act together, it's bound to be rainy and chill anyways. We all look forward to seeing you there!

I'm super excited to share the details of a FREE deal this week on one of the books from the fabulous series, the Fireworks Novellas: Objectify Me.

Here's a video about the Fireworks Novellas


Seattle law student Levi Borovski has been ceremonially dispatched from his family home to “get over himself” as his mother not so politely puts it. For the last year he’s been experimenting with living by orthodox Jewish traditions and it’s driven his liberal secular parents crazy. To make matters worse, the nice Jewish medical student for whom he put in all this effort has just gotten engaged to someone else. Why Levi’s mother thinks spending Mardi Gras in New Orleans will improve his mood is something of a mystery, but at this stage he’s pretty much ready to try anything. So when his frat buddies ditch him to take off on some drug dealer’s riverboat Levi is left to his own devices in the Big Easy, determined, despite everything to let the good times roll.

Charlotte Gibbs doesn’t exactly hate her demeaning job as a lap dancer in the high end French Quarter gentlemen’s club, Objections. It’s good money and the attention she gets from her mostly rich lawyer clientele satisfies her ego enough that her perpetual singlehood no longer feels like a voodoo curse. Tourists can be a pain though, and Mardi Gras week is especially bad. Still, a hard-working girl like Charlotte is entitled to have a little fun sometimes. So when an adorably drunk but sincere West Coast college boy invites her for a drink, Charlotte decides to take a chance.

Neither of this mismatched set of misfits imagines that the magic of Mardi Gras will rub off on them in quite such a sexy, dramatic and life changing way. When the sun comes up on New Orleans will they find a way to make this unexpected magic last?

She tastes like lime and sugar, and her mouth is warm and soft. My cock throbs as I think about what other parts of her might be warm and soft, too. Just when I think I might slide down on the ground with her legs wrapped around me, she pulls back. I sneak a look down at her cleavage which is moving up and down as she breathes heavily.
“So…what’s your hotel like?” She looks back over my shoulder to the hotel a block away.
“It’s nice. Pretty quiet. Quaint, I guess you’d say. It’s decorated with antiques and stuff.”
She looks up at me through her eyelashes, nodding, a twinkle in her eye. “And your room? That’s nice?”
“Yeah, good. It’s like a two-bedroom suite, because I came with two friends. So they let me have the bigger room because I organized the trip. There’s a balcony over Bourbon Street. It’s pretty cool.”
She nods some more, her mouth slowly breaking into a grin.
“Oh God,” I say. “I really suck at this. You’re looking for an invitation, right?”
“Unless you feel strongly about another cocktail.”
“Hell, no.” I grab her hand and we practically run the block and half back to the LaFleur. By the time we get there, we’re out of breath and laughing. And I can’t quite believe what’s happening. I’m glad I didn’t have another cocktail. This is the kind of situation that can go south in about a thousand different ways when too much alcohol in involved.
I sneak a little kiss as I dig the key out of my pocket.
The doorman looks up as we walk in. I wink at him and lead Charlotte to the staircase.
“Boy, you been gone five minutes!” he calls after us.
Charlotte trails her hand along the wooden bannister as we climb up to the second floor. “I’ve walked past this place about a thousand times, and I’ve always wanted to see inside.”
“Is it what you expected?”
“It’s clean,” she says pausing at the top of the stairs to look at a painting of a pirate. “I dunno. I think I expected these places to be like haunted houses or something. All old and dusty.”
I tug her across the landing to the door of our suite. “Not haunted at all. We even have WiFi.” I pause as I unlock and open the door, taking her hand. This whole situation is so crazy and surreal, I need to make sure I don’t epically screw it up. “I want you to know something,” I say. “I’m not one of those guys who thinks that just because a girl comes to your hotel room, it means she agrees to sex.”
Charlotte grins and touches the tip of her nose onto mine. “But I do agree to sex.” She grabs the front of my shirt and pulls me through the door, slamming it behind us.
