Maverick: Satan’s Fury MC by L Wilder and Marci Ponce

New York Times and USA Today Best Seller, L Wilder:
“A good liar knows that the most efficient lie is always a truth that has had a key piece removed from it.”
Carlos Riuzzafon

Maverick is a man scarred by a past full of deceit. He was forced to make a choice… a choice that now keeps him held in the darkness — a prisoner of his own doubt and regret. The Satan’s Fury MC is the only thing he lives for. Being their new Sergeant of Arms gives him the distraction he desperately needs to endure. He knows that he will never forget, but with the help of his brothers, he’ll try to move forward.

Henley’s life was just as she’d always planned. All of her hard work and studying had finally paid off with a full-ride to college. Everything seemed to be right on track… until the night she witnesses a crime that puts her in danger. She suddenly finds herself needing the protection of Satan’s Fury and an enigmatic biker named Maverick.

Henley is immediately drawn to Maverick. The pain and anger in his eyes hides something. Despite the walls he keeps throwing up, she knows there is more to him than just the brooding biker who makes her body crave his touch. She will stop at nothing until she makes all of those walls come crashing down.

When the lies of Maverick’s past unfold, will Henley be the light that pulls him from the darkness?

Warning: This book is intended for readers 18 years or older due to bad language, violence, and explicit sex scenes. Maverick is a standalone romance, but you may be interested in reading Summer Storm, the first book in this series.

Trick Question: A Hard-Boiled New Orleans Legal Thriller (Tubby Dubonnet #3) (The Tubby Dubonnet Series) by Tony Dunbar

Trick Question is the THIRD mouth-watering mystery in Edgar- and Anthony-nominated author Tony Dunbar’s beloved TUBBY DUBONNET series.

“A real work of mystery art.” -New Orleans Times-Picayune

“(Tubby Dubonnet) makes a charming guide to a side of New Orleans few see.” -Booklist

DUNBAR’S INVENTED A NEW GENRE: CALL IT CREOLE-FOODIE-NOIR.

For the discerning reader who enjoys a knowing chuckle, a sazerac, a bit of pompano en papillote, and a running travelogue of New Orleans along with his murders…

Medical lab janitor Cletus Busters is caught red-handed in a restricted area with the frozen head of Dr. Whitney Valentine, one of the lab’s most prestigious researchers. Busters won’t say much, except that he’s innocent. But given his conspicuous record and past as a voodoo guru, all signs point to life in prison.

Calling Tubby Dubonnet!

With the trial less than a week away, Busters’ lawyer has made exactly two motions – heading to the bar for several rounds of Wild Turkey and begging Tubby for help. Meanwhile, Tubby’s taken on a new client – a female boxer with an abusive boyfriend – and also has to referee the romantic entanglements of his ex-wife and three teenage daughters.

But as Buster’s trial proceeds, and the jury savors the startling evidence (alongside Dunbar’s succulent descriptions of Crescent City cuisine), the danger mounts. Revealing the murderer could prove to be Tubby’s biggest triumph – or his last case ever.

Warning: Do not attempt to read this book without a handy snack – preferably a Hubig’s pie or a pack of Zapp’s potato chips. Both would be better.

“Dunbar’s understated, syncopated delivery makes you wonder if there are enough honest men in New Orleans for a rubber of bridge” -Kirkus

“Dunbar weaves together the many strands of his highly entertaining tale with much skill and wit.” -Publisher’s Weekly
