Series: Freebirds #4
Author:  Lani Lynn Vale
Published: June 30, 2014
Genre: Contemporary MC Romance



She's been known as Jane for the last seven years.  Have you ever felt lost?  Well she knows lost.  She’s the definition of lost.  Cruelly beaten within an inch of her life?  Check.  No memory of anything that's happened since she woke up from that beating?  Check.  Losing a child, especially one she didn’t remember conceiving?  Check.  Jane has been sent away from her home of the past seven years by a hot older biker that tells her that her life’s in danger.  His solution is to send her to a place that’s the home of a man that she feels a connection with instantly.  A bone deep connection.


Jacks spent the last seven years in a depression.  After the death of his young wife while on his first tour of duty in Afghanistan, he hasn't seen the appeal of participating in the world around him.  He’s lost everyone that’s ever meant anything to him.  His mom.  His dad.  His sister.  His wife.  Why make any more connections?  They’re just going to die.  The only things keeping him on this earth with boots firmly planted are his brothers who fought with him during hell on earth, and his best friend, the man that was there for his wife when he couldn't be.  The one who promised to keep her safe, and didn’t.  Then he loses one of those things, and Jack really has nothing left.  He comes home to an empty bed, and dreams of what used to be, caught up in a never ending nightmare that never ends.  Until she screams his name, that is.


A name is the first memory that has surfaced in her brain in the last seven years.  That name is Jackopa.  Her husband.

Excerpt #2

It was so quiet that I had to move closer to him to be able to hear what he said next. “I’m a fucking failure.”

Tears sprung to my eyes, and I walked up to him and wrapped my arms underneath his. My head lay against his wildly thumping heart. His breathing was fast and erratic, but his arms went around me anyway. “You were my lifeline. I knew something was keeping me here. I was dead, Jack. So dead, in fact, that I remember a weird place that had fields and fields of Bluebonnets. I had a dog there that was running and playing. A young girl with black hair and black eyes was chasing after the dog, squealing in laughter. Something held me back from chasing after them, though, and that was a man with black hair and black eyes. That was you.”

“Some fucking lifeline. I left you to whatever fate happened to you. We lost our child. Fuck. I didn’t even fucking look for you in the last two years. After I moved here from San Antonio, I couldn’t find it in myself to look anymore. When my dad died, I didn’t have that constant reminder anymore.”  He replied dejectedly.

“Jack. You’re a smart man. Whatever happened must have been so very real. So real that it fooled everyone. Now, I need to piss like a racehorse. Where’s the bathroom?”  I said, trying not to dance from foot to foot.

He laughed softly and pointed to the hallway that yawned behind me. Making my way, I used the facilities, and then being the nosy busybody that I was, I snooped.

Opening the medicine cabinet first, I found the usual of shaving cream, toothpaste, toothbrush, and razor. Just as I was about to open the drawers, an amused voice drifted through the door. “You won’t find my condoms in there.”

I slammed the drawer so quick that I caught my finger in it, and then proceeded to see stars as the throbbing of my finger left me breathless. “Fuck me. Mother fucker. Dirty rotten cock sucker.”

“I see you still have that colorful mouth, too.”  Jack said, as he slipped in the door and picked up my hand.

He gave it a kiss and held it firmly in the palm of his hand, adding pressure to the sting, bringing it down to a six on the scale of zero and ‘I just stepped on a Lego’ ten.

Turning out the light in the bathroom, he led me back to the kitchen table where he sat me down and then gave me an ice pack for my hand. He cracked open a Corona, then placed a glass of iced tea down in front of me with a box of Ritz Crackers and a bottle of squirt cheese.

I fell on the sacrifice like a starved maniac. It was when I was about ten crackers in that I saw Jack silently laughing at me from across the table. “What?”  I asked around a mouthful.

Incidentally, I spewed cracker crumbs. My face flamed, and he laughed even harder.

“My God. It’s as if we picked up exactly where we left off. What the hell is your fascination with cheese?”  He asked with a smile.
