Silver Valley Series, Book 1

Paperback, 448 pages
Expected publication: April 7th 2015 by Berkley




First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels

Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward—full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That’s when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from… But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can’t ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her—the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.

Puck will help her again, but this time it’ll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants…



5 Stars


Becca is the textbook definition of a survivor. The poor girl has been to hell and back more times than she can probably count.   Suffering from horrors that no one, let alone a teenager should have to go through.  Used as a pawn as to whatever means to met her sadistic parents wants or needs for the moment. I would say Becca has good reasons for her anger issues, her temper and the fact that those memories still haunt her.  Underneath all the anger is a sweet, soft and loving woman, who will take you down if she must.


Puck had just become my new favorite biker. Too wise for his age, an old soul in a hot sexy body.  The best day of Pucks life just so happens to coincide with the worst. Hours after getting his patch, he indulges in temptation risking his new freedom.  The dominating, hard-core, bad ass is no saint. He will get what he wants, how and when he wants. Not caring how it has to happen. Alpha biker, born and bred. His loyalty and devotion, not only for the club but for those he feels he needs to protect is truly remarkable and immeasurable.


Joanna Wylde kicks off her new Silver Valley series with the intensity raw and sinfully gratifying, Silver Bastard.


A connection made in a messed up situation has left Becca and Puck in a fantasy filled, tense, watching at a distance dance for years.

When worlds collide, sparks will fly.  A heavy storyline that takes deception to a whole new level. Sexual tension that will rise goosebumps on your skin and grabbing a fan to cool down. The ever present humor and wit, one the the biggest reason I love Joanna’s stories, is at its best. Emotional can’t even begin to describe the full throttle ride that is Silver Bastard.


Silver Valley is a tight knit community where ties and blood run deep.  Ms. Wylde enriches the story by including true facts and history of the area. Introducing the readers to people, factions and group that make up area. Setting the tone for what I believe to be a very intriguing set of stories to come.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via netgalley for an honest review.
