Vaughn is now a patched member of the Steel Bandits and his world is dangerous, especially for Lily now that his enemies know what she means to him...

Why do I enjoy being an Indie author?
A lot of people asked me why I remain Indie. It's not that I haven't ever been offered a traditional publishing contract. I have. Especially in the very beginning, after writing my Zombie Games series (yes, I wrote horror and fantasy long before my steamy biker stories). But, after publishing twenty-nine books, I feel like I've accomplished a hell of a lot on my own and it's an exhilarating feeling.
*I don't have to answer to anyone but myself. I am my own boss. For some writers it doesn't always work well. Yes, I still have deadlines and need to remain focused, but at the end of the day, I'm answering to myself. Whether I fail or succeed is in my hands.
* I can write what I want and when I want. In fact, I write several different genres, including horror, fantasy, romance, and YA. My pen names are Cassie Alexandra, K.L. Middleton, and Kristen Middleton.
*I'm leaving it up to the readers as to whether my books are enjoyable, and not someone at a publishing house who just might not "get" my writing. Not everyone is going to like my books. I respect that. But, I want to publish something that I've enjoyed writing and not get any road-blocks or forced to make plot or character changes.
*I am making the decisions on my book covers, my pricing, and where I want to sell my work. I can also hire my own editors, pay for my own advertising, and market the way that I want to market. I'm in charge and if I fail, I learn from the experience and move forward.
*I've motivated others to publish their own work. There are so many people out there who have wonderful stories to tell and do not realize that they can bypass a traditional publisher. Especially if they've been turned down. No, you might not be able to make a living on your self-published book, but on the other hand, if you do have a real talent for storytelling, you just never know what the future might bring.
I've always loved reading, especially horror stories. From early on, I had my nose buried in Stephen King, Dean Koontz, F. Paul Wilson, and Peter Straub's books. I can still remember how disturbed I was, at the young age of nine, after reading Ghost Story. To this day, I don't think I've ever read anything so creepy and fantastic. Now, over thirty years later, I'm writing and publishing my own books, which is something I would have never dreamed possible. It's a dream come true and if it wasn't for Amazon's self-publishing platform, I'd never be where I am today. I am so very grateful and honored to be included in Amazon's Powered By Indie this October. They have changed the writing industry and for me, it's been nothing but joy and success.

If you've been wondering what's next in The Biker series, it will be this book, Loving The Biker. I do not have a publishing date, but it should be available early summer and it will wrap up anything that has loose ends, in the series. Will it be my last biker book? At this point, I'm really not sure. I have been thinking about writing a series about ultimate fighters or even secret agents. Both sound fun to write.
Loving The Biker synopsis -
When Detective Terin O’Brien is assigned to an investigation involving the Gold Vipers, she is blind-sided by the strong attraction she has for Cole Johnson. Not only is he the main suspect in the case, but he’s also a man who once came to her rescue, during a botched arrest. Now Terin is caught between wanting Cole behind bars and wanting him as a man, which she knows is wrong, stupid, and above all else… dangerous.
Cole Johnson will do anything to protect his club and the person responsible for the murder he’s being questioned for. When he comes face-to-face with Terin O’Brien, a familiar face and the lead investigator in the case, he soon realizes that she’s fighting an obvious attraction for him. Using this to his advantage, he turns on the charm to steer the beautiful detective away from the investigation and into his bed.
Yeah, it’s a tough job, but Cole’s willing to take one for the club…

Taming the Biker is now live on most ebook stores. If you were one of the first people to download it on Amazon and ran into problems (you received Resisting The Biker instead), you should have received an update from Amazon with the correct story by now. If you haven't and are tired of waiting, you can refund the original and get this one instead. You will get the correct version (I tested it myself earlier). Sorry about the mishap and thanks for all of your patience!
