Author’s Note

 

Welcome back to Hell, Texas! This is the second book (and first full-length novel) in the Four Horsemen MC series and several others are in the works. This book is darker in tone than the first, Sweet Perdition. The third book, Damned, will be darker still. However, my characters overcome their considerable issues and the overall tone is hopeful.

 

Trigger Warning:
This book contains scenes of attempted sexual assault, off-screen torture, and violence. The excerpt from the next book in the series contains references to self-injurious behavior and homophobia.

Chapter One

I want her.

Cowboy tried to shake the mental hold the stripper had on his dick. Something about the blonde tempted him
and it should have been hard to keep his interest. After all, he’d bellied up to a busty bar full of options.

Far as his cock knew, she was the only woman in the club.

 He tried to focus on his surroundings, instead of the woman dancing on stage. Not much to report. Although his twenty-something self would have loved the Pussycat Palace’s brothel vibe, he had outgrown that stupid shit for the most part.

The place left a lot to be desired. Cheetah fabric covered the booths, with cheap black acrylic tables. Fake gold stripper poles lined the stage and the long catwalk. The Palace waitresses walked around in tight white tank tops which featured a nearly naked woman in a cat costume, along with black Daisy Dukes that showed a generous amount of ass.

Well, the outfits weren’t that bad.

The music sucked though. Cowboy pressed a hand to his forehead, trying to fight off a headache as the DJ started up George Michael ’s
I Want Your Sex
. He’d never really cared for 80s artists because all of the music sounded the same to him. He loved old school country, Johnny Cash in particular.

Cowboy needed to get some info and he’d hoped the dancers or the waitresses would be a bit more chatty on such a slow night. But they’d been skittish, dodging his questions and giving him a wide berth. Other than the club owner, the bouncers, and himself? No bikers. Only a passel of drunken, horny military dudes crowded around the main stage hooting and hollering at the women.

That and a man in a very expensive suit.

He kept to himself in the corner, scribbling away in some leather bound notebook. Somethin’ about Suit Guy bugged the shit out of him. All buttoned up and squared shoulders, he didn’t react to the dancers. What man comes to a strip club and ignores the main attraction? And while Cowboy glanced in his direction, the dude actually yawned. Yawned?!

Cowboy shrugged. Weird as it was, it didn’t happen to be his business and he had much more pressing concerns. Like sneaking a glance at the stripper again.

Great rack. He could get lost between those big tits.
Damn
. She had just been fucked hair, a blond tumble of curls surrounded her pretty face, like she’d left some lucky bastard’s bed moments ago and he’d been running his hands through it all night. Her tight ass cheeks peeked from beneath a tiny skirt. She’d topped off the outfit with red, fuck me heels, and black thigh highs trimmed with crimson bows.

He loved the tat on her shoulder. A lioness growling, with teeth bared, and claws out. It extended down the line of her back, and then disappeared beneath a red corset. It made him wonder if she was a wildcat in bed or a sweet purring pussy.

When he tore his attention away from her, he noted the rest of her co-workers were in a daze. Sure, strippers usually regarded horny guys with bored expressions as they danced. But these girls? Lifeless. Nothing but a row of pretty painted zombies shuffling around the catwalk as George crooned about gettin’ some. He supposed they could be junkies. Cowboy recognized the signs. They had red-rimmed, spaced out eyes, dull hair and skin, slowed reaction time. Not to mention they were skinny as understuffed scarecrows.

His girl didn’t look bored though.

She eyed the crowd, evaluating them, and then marched down the catwalk like a drill sergeant traipsing by the new recruits. All obey my commands and kiss my boots attitude. He had no clue why she had come to the Palace, but he’d bet his blue Harley Fat Boy, she hadn’t come here to strip.

When she reached the edge of the stage, she launched herself at the pole and spun on it like a wild thing. Women usually seduced the pole, treated it like a lover to be gently rubbed against. Not his girl. She attacked it and then forced it into submission, upending her body on the rod, and then clenching it with her strong thighs. Squeezing.

Holy fuckin’ shit.

Cowboy had a boner the size of Texas in his Levis. He’d love nothing more than to explore every single inch of her long, powerful legs. He couldn’t help but think of them wrapped around his waist as he fucked her.

Oh hell yes.
He could back her up against a wall, drive into her while she clawed up his back, coming for him again and again.

He drained the rest of his lukewarm beer and tried to pull his shit together. He had a job to do. He’d come to question the girls since the Raptors were out on a run and he shouldn’t be sitting here getting his motor revved.

The Four Horsemen, his MC, had gotten wind that the Raptors had been trafficking in women, using them for profit. From what he’d pieced together from the night of the living dead strippers on stage, there had to be some truth to the stories. That sort of shit didn’t sit well with the Four Horsemen. He’d bring the info back to his club and they’d sort this out, preferably the hard way.

The Horsemen were something of an anomaly in the MC world. They had many ways to earn, but none of them involved using women. By far their favorite business, a very lucrative one at that, involved
karmic facilitation,
a Horsemen term for meting out some richly deserved vigilante justice. Usually for profit and hell, sometimes just for fun. In other words? What goes around comes around to bite you on the ass.

The club motto wasn’t
Think on Your Sins
for nothing.

Unfortunately, he had to stay in a holding pattern until he conferred with his brothers. Cowboy felt naked without his Four Horsemen cut, the leather vest which marked him as a member of the MC. He wanted to shut this thing down. Tonight. He fantasized about drawing his Colt, rounding every single one of these dickheads up, and then making an example of them, all by his Lone Ranger self. But he knew it would be suicide.

And he’d gotten over his death wish a couple of years ago.

He scanned the back of the club. Two big guys served as bouncers. They both had to be pushing three hundred and fifty pounds, easily six and a half feet. Both of them wore Raptor prospect cuts, so they hadn’t been officially let into the club. Like a fraternity, potential members had to pledge before they became full members.

Down the hallway, to the left of the stage, he spied the Raptor meeting room. The club symbol, a bird of prey with talons bared, had been carved into the wooden doors. Took some balls, to put your MC’s club house in a strip joint funded by drugged women.

He couldn’t help but eye the pretty stripper again.

And damn if she didn’t look good enough to eat. From the way his dick reacted, you’d think he hadn’t seen a woman in years. Even though he’d gotten a blow job this morning from one of the hellions, naughty girls who hung around his club. Nothing special, but it had drained his balls and cleared his head. Well, until he saw the stripper.

Wildcat locked eyes with him and wrapped one, long, lean leg around the pole, held on tight. Then bucked against it. Hard. Again and again as he watched every fucking movement. He imagined her thrusting against him like that, as she rode his cock.

He clutched the empty beer bottle in his hand, worried he might bust the fucking thing.

She shimmied away from the pole, teasing him with more glimpses of her panties beneath the fabric of that short skirt. Then, turned and rocked her ass back and forth to Warrant’s
Cherry Pie
, pausing only to glance at him over her shoulder and then she winked.

Oh fuck me.

She glided down the stage steps, but snubbed the military douchebags and Suit Guy, eyes completely focused on Cowboy alone. The boys frantically tried to flag her down with dollar bills, but she strutted to his table instead. Then eased her arms up over her head and danced for him.

She swung her hips, shook that ass. Then, she leaned over, giving him a real good view of those big tits, straining to break free from her corset.

 Cowboy clenched his jaw.

She leaned down and whispered to him, her cherry mouth against his ear. “What do you say, baby? Take me to the champagne room?”

Christ.
His cock reared at her words, stood up in his pants like the stripper pole she’d twirled on. He knew she had only offered him an invitation to buy a lap dance, a poor imitation of what he really craved but his cock didn’t seem to give a shit about the circumstances.

Mentally, he said no. However, his dick, the traitorous fucker, made him say yes.

 Before he could stop himself, he’d gotten to his feet and followed her down a very narrow hallway to a small, empty room. Discreet, and off the beaten, the room had red velvet chairs, a private pole, and a big black coffee table that could serve as a tiny stage.

Another thought suddenly occurred to him.

What if the Raptors used the dancers as prostitutes as well? Maybe the club had the girls proposition men for sex on site. It made sense. The club didn’t have to buy or rent a separate facility or even secure a hotel room. The bouncers could even protect their “merchandise” from dudes who might damage their investment.

And this situation put Cowboy securely on the horns of a real fucking dilemma.

When it came to Wildcat, he didn’t know if his moral compass currently pointed due north. Could he pass up the chance to fuck her if she offered it up? He swallowed thickly.

Dear fluffy Lord, I hope so.

He’d never paid for sex.
Never
. He considered it a point of pride. The women he slept with craved him as well. Nothing but mutual lust, attraction and never a business arrangement.

Cowboy argued with himself. He’d just look, okay, maybe touch, but
definitely
not fuck. Because it wouldn’t be right. He needed to know exactly what kind of bullshit the Raptors were into. That’s it! If she offered, he’d pony up the cash and make her turn on the dickheads and blab all the details.
