(Devils Fury MC)
Publication date: September 24th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Suspense
Mariah — I knew my dad, a Dixie Reaper, wouldnt understand why I wanted to date a cop. Its why Id planned to elope with Ty, until it all went so very wrong. My dad caught me, tossed me into the car, and drove me hours away to the Devils Fury. I didnt know hed already promised me to someone else. Savage. The Devils Fury MC Treasurer. A man who set butterflies loose in my stomach at first sight.
The man might have claimed me as his, but he runs every time were in the same room together. I cant tell if hes just that turned off by me, or if theres another woman. Whatever it is, he either needs to let me go, or make me his — in all ways. I just never expected the surprise left at the gates, and the way it would make my heart break, or the fact my ex would be a lunatic. I should have known life would throw me a curveball. Or two. Nothing is ever easy.
Savage — Claiming a woman sight unseen didnt seem like such a bad thing. It wasnt like I had anyone I wanted to settle down with. The fact shes two decades younger than me might have given me pause at one point, but not anymore. Then she arrives, spitting and hissing like an angry kitten. I try to do the right thing and give her time. Except clearly that was the wrong thing to do.
Ill make her realize shes the only one I want, claim her in every way possible, but first… I need to take care of business. The dirty cop who preys on women and children will be taught a lesson he wont soon forget. Should have known the daughter of Dixie Reaper wouldnt shy away from getting her hands dirty and wouldnt need saving. Not sure how I got so lucky to call her mine, but Im holding on tight to Mariah. Shes the best thing to ever happen to me.
WARNING: Savage is part of the Devils Fury MC and contains bad language, adult situations, dark content, and violence some may find difficult to read. But theres a guaranteed happily-ever-after, no cliffhanger, no cheating, a super cute little girl, and some adorable kittens.
My jaw ached from grinding my teeth. I stared out the window, refusing to even look at my dad. I couldnt believe hed hauled me away from Tyson. Another few minutes, and wed have been gone. I wondered whod told. Could have been the Prospect at the gate, or any of my dads spies around town. I should have waited until dark. Even though Id begged Ty to wait, he hadnt listened.
Cant ignore me forever,” my dad said.
Want to bet?
We crossed the Alabama state line and entered Florida. He hadnt said exactly where we were going. Devils Boneyard? They werent far from our current location. I wanted to ask. Pressing my lips together, I forced myself to remain silent.
Fine. Pout like a damn kid, Mariah, but its not going to change anything. Settle in. We still have a bit of a drive.”
I looked over at him. What the hell did that mean? The Devils Boneyard was only another hour, if that. So where were we going? When he took the ramp to head north into Georgia, my stomach knotted. Oh, shit.
Were going to see Farrah?” I asked before I could stop myself.
Nope, but same location.”
Shit. If we werent going to see Farrah, then who? Did my dad want my brother-in-law, Demon, to scare the hell out of me? Because it wouldnt be hard. Just being in his presence was enough to make me pee myself. I knew he doted on my sister, but it didnt change his scare factor. Id heard the stories of what hed done when people crossed him or the Devils Fury.
I tried not to fidget as the truck ate up the miles. My nerves were shot by the time we arrived. Expecting my dad to stop at Farrahs or even the clubhouse, I couldnt hold back my gasp as he kept going. Bile rose in my throat, and I scanned the area, not having a damn clue whose house wed be visiting. The fact hed packed my clothes and a box of my books didnt bode well for this being a quick stop.
Since my dad had taken my phone, I couldnt even text Ty to let him know my current location. I knew hed have come for me. We may not have made our flight today, but we could have gotten another one.
We came to a stop outside a sprawling home. It might have only been one-story, but I could tell it was far from small inside. I got out and stood by the truck, not knowing what to expect. The front door opened and when I saw the large man who strolled out to meet us, my stomach flipped.
You made good time,” Savage said, holding his hand out to my dad.
Needed to get her out of there immediately. Caught her trying to run off with the cop.” My dad glared at me. Nothing to say, Mariah?”
Why am I here?” I asked.
Savages eyebrows rose and he rocked back on his feet. Damn. Im guessing this is a conversation we should have inside. Yall come in. Need me to get anything from the truck?”
I threw a box of her books in the back seat, and she has a bag of clothes. I can send the rest in a few days.” My dad started walking to the house. Getting olds a bitch. Im using your bathroom.”
My dad tossed a phone at him. Thats hers. She can have it back, but Im not giving it to her. She may call that shithead cop.”
Savage caught the phone, looked at it a moment, then handed it to me. No calls or texts until we talk. Dont make me regret letting you have that back.”
He opened the back door of the truck and hauled my stuff out like it didnt weigh anything. I had no choice but to follow him into the house. He set my things down inside the door and motioned for me to have a seat in the living room. Gray slate floors stretched in every direction, and the light gray walls added to the drab color scheme.
I sank onto a black leather sofa and eyed the unusual coffee table. It had to be custom-made. The base looked like a large cut tree trunk. Etched into the top were the colors for the Devils Fury, and a piece of glass set over the top, cut to match the edges. I hadnt ever seen anything like it. The wood had been distressed or stained to a dark charcoal.
To my left, a flat screen TV hung from the wall. It had to be at least sixty inches or more. Across from the couch and table were two chairs, and a smaller table set between the two. An ottoman sat catty-corner to one of them, and I figured it must be where Savage usually sat. The chair looked more worn than the other one.
My dad entered the room, his arms folded, and he glared at me. I narrowed my eyes right back and waited to see why hed brought me here.
What did you mean you caught her trying to leave with the cop?” Savage asked, sinking into one of two leather chairs, the one Id thought would be his. He sprawled, reminding me of a big jungle cat.
Ty and I are getting married,” I said.
Savage tensed. That right?”
I didnt tell her,” Dad said. I should have, but I was biding my time.”
Savage arched an eyebrow. That worked out well, didnt it?”
The look they shared told me something was up. Why had my dad brought me here? What had he kept from me?
Tell me what?” I asked.
Casper VanHorne arranged for Savage to claim you as his old lady. Youre already promised to him, Mariah, so you cant marry the damn cop.”
