about

Brotherhood. Club. Family.

They live and ride by their own rules.

These are the Raven Riders . . .

Raven Riders Motorcycle Club President Dare Kenyon rides hard and values loyalty above all else. He’ll do anything to protect the brotherhood of bikers—the only family he’s got—as well as those who can’t defend themselves. So when mistrustful Haven Randall lands on the club’s doorstep scared that she’s being hunted, Dare takes her in, swears to keep her safe, and pushes to learn the secrets overshadowing her pretty smile.

Haven fled from years of abuse at the hands of her criminal father and is suspicious of any man’s promises, including those of the darkly sexy and overwhelmingly intense Ravens’ leader. But as the powerful attraction between them flares to life, Dare pushes her boundaries and tempts her to want things she never thought she could.

The past never dies without a fight, but Dare Kenyon’s never backed down before . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't put it down! From beginning to end it was amazing. I could not put the book down!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.25 stars-great start to a new series 4.25 stars-- RIDE HARD is the first full-length installment in Laura Kaye’s contemporary adult RAVEN RIDERS MC erotic, romance series focusing on the men and women of Raven Riders MC. This is Club president Dare Kenyon, and Haven Randall’s story line. There is a prequel novella-HARD AS STEEL- that can be found in the 1001 Dark Nights multi authored novella series. The Raven Riders is a spin off from Laura’s Hard Ink series. Told from dual third person perspectives (Dare and Haven) RIDE HARD follows Haven Randall, and her best friend Cora-on the run. Haven has had to endure years of abuse and neglect at the hands of her father-a small time crime lord who had plans for his only child. When Haven and Cora ran, they found themselves prisoners of the Church Gang MC, only to be rescued by the Hard Ink warriors, and finally finding asylum with the Raven Riders MC. What ensues is a building relationship between Dare and Haven, and the Raven Riders’ struggle to ensure Haven and Cora’s future safety. With an inflated price on her head, Haven becomes the number one target in a war between rival MCs. Dare is a bit of an enigma-he is the Raven Rider Club president-a tough alpha male-who finds himself falling for the quiet and reserved Haven Randall. Haven is a woman who presents as weak, fragile and demure-her earlier years are fraught with abuse at the hands of her father and his men; she has been witness to all number of atrocities and evil. We learn a little bit about their pasts: the darkness, the damage and the heartbreaking losses. The relationship between Haven and Dare is one of immediate attraction but Dare believes their age difference is too wide to overcome, and that her presumed innocence is not for his taking. When Dare finds Haven’s ‘bucket list’ of things to do, he is the man who is going to make all of Haven’s wishes come true. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense. For someone with little experience Haven is a woman who knows how to please her man. RIDE HARD is a slow building storyline where two women find refuge and comfort with a motorcycle club that is all about helping those who are unable to help themselves. The Raven Riders fight against abuse and neglect, and protect the woman and children who have suffered at the hands of abusive men. RIDE HARD is a bit of a vanilla MC, in that most of the violence and action takes place behind the scenes. The conflict resolution was quick-I was hoping for something more powerful and dark. There are a couple of familiar scenarios that may pay homage to Laura’s favorite author (whether intentional or not)- the similarity and resemblance to the other story line has been noted by this reader. RIDE HARD is a wonderful and exciting start to a new series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from meh Really wanted to enjoy this book but it was boring in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Motorcycle gang-lite, but very suspense heavy. I wasn’t sure how much I was going to like Laura Kaye’s Ride Hard. After all, it seems that many of my favourite authors are delving into the motorcycle gang genre, with mixed results. Also, I wasn’t sure if it was going to be on the dark side of the motorcycle genre (i.e., women sharing, abuse for those who don’t fall in line, and women not having a voice in the gang). For my part, I was happy to discover that this book was more on the suspense/protector side of things with less of a focus on the unsavoury side of a motorcycle gang (at least to me). Written by the author of the Hard Ink series (which was a lot of fun), this book starts off a new series; it tells the story of Haven Randall, a woman trying to escape from the brutal clutches of her father, the leader of a motorcycle gang. In her quest for freedom she runs into Dare Kenyon, the president of the Raven Riders. Dare was already introduced in another book by Kaye, but you don’t need to read it to understand him here. He offers Haven and her best friend Cora sanctuary and the chance to become new people and escape her father. Kara has lived her life under severe restrictions, unable to forge her own path or have any independence. One of the first things she does when free is to make a list of things she wants to experience. Dare finds the list and offers to help her cross everything off. He is generally understanding of Kara’s past although he does say some really dumb things, which of course lead to misunderstandings. Overall though he’s a wonderfully protective love interest who helps Kara come out of her shell and experience all that life has to offer. I rate this book 4.5 stars!

Editorial Reviews

The powerful chemistry between sweet, barely experienced Haven and seen-it-all Dare is off the charts, and the strong cast of supporting characters fuels the fire. Kaye’s deft plotting will keep readers guessing as they root for a successful, happy romance between Haven and Dare .
