BRAVO to Lea on her 15th Story!!

I loved both Stevie and Ragab!! Stevie is a motorcycle racer who is tough as nails, completely independent and has no trouble competing with the boys. She takes on a race in the Sahara desert where she meets up with Ragab. Neither one really wants to fall for the other but this is a Lea Bronsen book so Yes, they absolutely do. I enjoyed this couple, the desert aspects, the cultural aspects and the story.
If you haven't read any of Lea's work, you really should. S

First of all, make sure you clear your schedule before reading this because you will want to drop everything and book the first flight to Morocco, and that can be inconvenient you have other plans.

Oh yes, the hotties. Ragab, deary me *fans herself*.
And Stevie! I know nothing, absolutely nothing about motorbikes or rallies, but I immediately related to th

Award-winning author Lea Bronsen likes her reads hot, fast, and edgy, and strives to give her own stories the same intensity. After a deep dive on the unforgiving world of gangsters with her debut novel Wild Hearted, she divides her writing time between romantic suspenses, dark erotic romances, and crime thrillers.

She's signed with Evernight Publishing, Decadent Publishing, and Insatiable Press.
