Brotherhood. Club. Family.
They live and ride by their own rules.
These are the Raven Riders . . .
Raven Riders Motorcycle Club President Dare Kenyon rides hard and values loyalty above all else. He’ll do anything to protect the brotherhood of bikers—the only family he’s got—as well as those who can’t defend themselves. So when mistrustful Haven Randall lands on the club’s doorstep scared that she’s being hunted, Dare takes her in, swears to keep her safe, and pushes to learn the secrets overshadowing her pretty smile.
Haven fled from years of abuse at the hands of her criminal father and is suspicious of any man’s promises, including those of the darkly sexy and overwhelmingly intense Ravens’ leader. But as the powerful attraction between them flares to life, Dare pushes her boundaries and tempts her to want things she never thought she could.
The past never dies without a fight, but Dare Kenyon’s never backed down before . . .

Raven Riders My New Fav Series!
Haven Randall had no idea what safe and secure feels like. But her time spent with the motorcycle club, The Raven Riders, has now shown her how wonderful those things can feel. As the Ravens work toward making her and her friend, Cora, safe, she slowly comes out of her shell. Opening herself up to friendships and finally, love. Dare Kenyon is President of the Raven Riders. And he takes that position seriously. One look at Haven, and he is completely confused on his mission to send her away. He knows it's for her own safety, but the more time spent together, the more he realizes that letting her go may be the hardest things he has done.
With this spin off of Hard Ink by Laura Kaye, you will delve into a world of a motorcycle club that stands for something more than meets the eye. The author makes you believe there are good bikers and in the prospect of love in any situation! Awesome read!
This is her best book yet!!
Haven and Dare hooked me from the beginning and their story wouldn't let me go until the very end. Truly, truly great read! A standalone story, you don't have to know anything of her Hard Ink series but the characters got their start from that story line.
On the run from her abusive, mob boss of a father, Haven and her friend Cora got caught in a crossfire war between another mob gang and the 'good guys'. The good guys here being a group of veterans trying to avenge the loss of their brother and a motorcycle gang as their hired guns. Haven's mind is spinning as she's taken in by the MC gang/Raven Riders to heal and find a new life for herself. For a girl that has always had to 'hide' herself and be wary of her father's strong hand and worse from his associates, going into a place where the men are loud and like to party but act like no family she's ever seen has her thrown way off balance. Add to this Dare Kenyon, head of the Raven Riders, and a man she can stop watching and Haven knows she'll either crumble or become someone she never thought possible.
Dare is a man of many faces. He's the tough, doesn't take sh*t off anyone, leader of a biker gang, yet this gang is one that takes in and shelters women and children in bad situations and helps them find new lives. Its a different kind of motorcycle gang on purpose as he does not want to follow in the illegal proclivities his father chose. Though the Raven Riders' halos may be tilted (they're not perfectly above board), all of the men in the group stand for the downtrodden and do what they can to help out. Dare is drawn to Haven like no one else before her and he can't stay away. He draws her out of her shell and shows her how strong she really is. He's determined to do his best by her, knowing he'll have to let her go in the end so that she can start a new life. But before he lets her go, the sheets will burn and burn and burn!!
Before she can leave, the problems with her father will surface and another fight will break out. The tension is so good between Dare and Haven and Dare and her father that the book is impossible to set down!
New characters are introduced and hints of future story lines/ships given. It looks like the start to another great series from Laura Kaye!
I have purchased her prior books but was given an ARC of this one for an honest review.
Holy Crap!!! If I could give a book more than 5-stars, It.Would.Be - RIDE HARD!
My heart broke several times for Haven and Dare. I loved how Haven developed with Dare being her strength and in return she helped Dare face issues from his past. Then my heart was shredded, only to be put back together in one happy piece.
Love this new series and can't wait for the release of Ride Rough.
