Wilcox has heard a rumor; a 1957 Mannhof is up for sale at
an auction. The custom-made motorcycles are the epitome of
German engineering and design. Each bike is exclusively
created for one owner. What the tough CEO does not realize
is that Will changes from machine to a man. He exists for
her. In order to reciprocate, Claire must first learn to
open her heart and allow Will to heal her soul.
Gaines’ writing is stark and clear in “One Owner, Lady
Driven.” I appreciated the precision and control the author
exerts in her narrative and the way she carefully draws you
into Claire and Will’s world. Her characters are placed in
a setting that erupts into colorful life from the moment
they are introduced in a tale that’s top grade.

choices have placed her at a dead end. Jake’s innocence and
determination is refreshing, a contrast to the seedy
debauchery and sinister aura of The Pit, where Dagger
circles them like a vicious ball of anger. The outcome and
the resolution are gratifying. Lauren proves that everyone
deserves a second chance, especially when putting forth an
effort to improve.

motorcycle cop because the stress is making her a job
liability. The memory of what happened to her is still

she does not know is that Nick is her destiny, sent from his

the perpetrators to justice.
story, “Driven to Justice” is the darkest of three due to
the subject matter. Charley struggles daily to deal with
her assault, and I wondered how Nick would win her love and
trust. The threads of desire entwine her while the chords
of intimacy seize hold of her heart and mind. She comes
alive and is able to work through the rage, pain, and
sorrow. Charley never gives up and what I like most about
her is that she is fighter. Nick helps to drive away her
demons, and later, she is able to be there when he must face

Gaines takes you on a hot journey that is literally a dream
come true for riders. I’m certain after reading these
stories, this author is sure to convert lots of non-riders,
too. The fact that these sensual hunks live to please their
women in every way adds dimension (and all types of extra
wicked thoughts) to the term sex machine.
