Anouk - He's a killer who took me with him. Although he was sweet, tender, and yet so very dominating a moment ago; that's all insignificant now.

Ronin - I answer to no one. As the Prez of Lost Valkyries MC, people answer to me, not the other way around. Even if they place an order for a hit, I'm in charge and can flip the order back in their face along with their last

3.5 stars

I am liking these short MC stories from Esther Schmidt. While they aren't perfection, I like the instalust/ love aspect. Ronin and Anouk meet during a less than ideal situation and Ronin knows he must have her.

Ronin is the President of the Lost Valkyries. He's a scarred killer. He is definitely no "Prince Charming" referring to women as "c**ts"- (that was for Amazon) and being callous. He sees Anouk and he wants her.

Anouk is

Okay. I'm claiming Ronin. I practically say it every time when I finish Esther books. By now I have a freakn harem, thanks to her and her guys. But seriously. Ronin was rough and dangerous, but he had this sweet side for his old lady. Ronin was so cherishing her. And add his dirty mouth... *add dreamy look on my face* Yeah, Ronin is the whole package. And I want him just for myself. I don't care that it makes me selfish. I'm not sharing him. He's all mine.

Hero and hitman, Ronin is the Prez of Lost Valkyries MC. While on a job where he's killed two, no three men, he discovers the smart-mouth sassy heroine, Anouk with ties on her arms and legs. Too bad those dead men didn't tape her mouth shut before she accidentally knocks herself out cold trying to hit Ronin-- lol! He decides to take her with him and her story is revealed along with their connection- fast!

I loved these two because they were flawed yes, but together they were a perfect couple! The

Another great read from this author. I absolutely loved it. I love how they loved each other. For safety folks: there is talk of rape of the h's mom, but it's not detailed. Can't wait for the next story. https://storiesinreview971130128.word...

...and she does it again.

Ronin and Anouk's story was a great read. Alpha male and fiesty heroine. I absolutely love the way the main character's in this series find each other. These two are really great for each other.

This is a quick read, totally perfect for a lazy afternoon relaxing...well except for the heart palpation's it will cause

I'm really loving this series,
This series is all short books but they really pack in a great story that captures your attention.
When I finished this one, I couldn't believe I had read it so quickly. It was so full it felt like I had read a longer novel.
Book 3 here I come.

I know this is only book 2 of this series but Oh My Gosh. These guys are pure hunk on a stick and then some. And I dont just mean in the looks department. They are raw, hardcore, tough as nails, bikers and no one crosses these guys. No one even gives them lip except the women that seem to capture their hearts at the most outrageous of times. Leave it to Ms. Schmidt to give us all of that and so much more.

Ronin is the prez of the Lost Valkyries MC and does what must be done. He doesnt shy away

In true Esther E. Schmidt style, you open this book, and you are captured by the words, story, characters and fast pace of the ride. No wasting any time, the characters on in action right from page one and do not stop until you reach "the end". Ronin is one tough biker, President of his MC; Lost Valeyries, and has just met his future in the one and only Anouk, who literally stumbles into his life immediately following his small killing spree in the room that she was apparently being held ...more

Awesome story, it hooks you in and keeps you there to the end. Contains some violence and explicit sexual content but all in context to the story. I have already pre ordered a copy of this book but received this as a prize in a competition which in no way affects my review. I enjoy this authors books she always gives me an exciting and interesting book and this one is no exception. Always surprising and different, I love the cover it gave me a good idea of how the main character looked so I ...more

This is the second book in the Lost Valkyries MC series by Esther E. Schmidt. If you read Crane then you're familiar with Ronin and if you didn't read it then you definitely should. Ronin is the President of the Lost Valkyries MC, he's also a killer for hire. He's just finished killing three people in a motel and it's bad enough there was a third and extra person there that he had to kill too because he couldn't leave loose ends. All of a sudden a fiesty redhead comes hopping out of the bathroom ...more

I love Ronin!!! Can I keep him? He's rough, dangerous but after one look at Anouk she sparks something inside of him. He wants her like none other.

Anouk doesn't have a great history, then in comes Ronin and practically sweeps her off her feet. He's a dirty talking biker.

I couldn't get enough of these two characters. They will heat up your Kindle, make you swoon, and your heart break when you know what their pasts were like.

I don't think I say it enough (just every review) but Esther Schmidt

Damn I want a Ronin for myself! In Cranes book Ronin made a comment about finding a woman like Faya and he definitely found his equal. He was dangerous, tuff, and not someone you want to mess with especially when it comes to Anouk. I loved how their relationship started as lust but then turned into something amazing. I loved when he told her, Throw it out, Anouk, give me all that dark shit that happened to you in your past so I can carry that shit with you. I will make fucking sure you will ...more

Ronin is Prez of the Lost Valkyries MC. He is a physically scarred, killer for hire. Always in control and never does relationships. That is until he meets Anouk.
Anouk is a redheaded, smartass who is hogged tied in a bathroom when Robin meets her. The are immediately drawn to each other and let me tell you, forget sparks, think combustion!!!!
Once again Esther provides us with unforgettable characters that draw you in from page one and take you on one hell of a ride. Can't wait for next book!!!!

Ronin and Anouk's story was perfect. The sparks between them was off the charts. I really loved getting to know both of these characters and the backgrounds they came from..I love when a bad ass hero has a scar on his face, it just shows his strength and he doesn't care what anybody thinks and a heroine who is a strong woman who doesn't hold her tongue! I can't wait to read Bark's story!!

Hot fricken DAMN!!! I knew Ronin was going to be good but man I cant find the words to describe how great a read this was. Book Two in the Lost Valkyries series has been well worth the wait. I could lick um read this bad boy multiple times and itll feel like it was the first time. A short, hot as (insert bad word here) read has made a hot and steamy night even hotter. Great job Esther! ...more

This was a hot, dirty and sexy novella that I read in mere hours. Ronin is the President of the Lost Valkyries MC and while out doing a job(hit) he gets the surprise of his life in the form of Anouk already tied up might I add. Anouk is a spitfire heroine who after all the downs in her life is no longer afraid to give as good as she's gets. Ronin is use to things going his way but Anouk becomes an exception to his rules. The chemistry is

Let me just say that I love this cover, very hot. This is another winner for Esther. Ronin and Anouks chemistry was off the charts. He was a bada** alpha that fell instantly. I like these short stories but always finish wanting more. ...more

Esther is the queen of instalove stories and what I think I love about them is that it could so easily be a full length novel, but she gives us everything we need to make it a great read quickly and then done! She gave us exactly that with Ronin! This couples story comes in hot and fast but leaves you wanting more. I highly recommend checking out this book and the rest of the series too!

A short story that gives you all the feels!
Anouk had a sad, sad past and Ronin came in and swept her off her feet, literally. Together the two of them set my kindle on fire, Ronin with his dirty talk shut her sassy mouth right up. Then the story comes full circle when his painful past plays out again only this time it warmed my heart and brought a tear to my eye. Another great story from Esther Schmidt.
