Lookie what we got, my fellow biker/MC romance book lovers!! One of our queens of biker-books has just sent over an exclusive excerpt from he upcoming bad-boy release, Reaper’s Stand (Reapers Motorcycle Club Book 4). And!! Five fun facts (yay insider info)!!! Annnnnnndddd!!! She’s giving away one signed copy (an ARC!!) to a lucky commenter, here!

Oh you guys!! It already sounds so good, and you know I was really into her other men… Picnic, though. Sounds like he’s gonna be a heartbreaker. Just the way I like ‘em. Here’s the blurb:

As Reapers Motorcycle Club president, Reese “Picnic” Hayes has given his entire life to the club. After losing his wife, he knew he’d never love another woman. And with two daughters to raise and a club to manage, that was just fine with him. These days, Reese keeps his relationships free and easy–he definitely doesn’t want to waste his time on a glorified cleaning lady like London Armstrong

Too bad he’s completely obsessed with her.

Besides running her own business, London’s got her junkie cousin’s daughter to look after–a more reckless than average eighteen-year-old. Sure she’s attracted to the Reapers’ president, but she’s not stupid. Reese Hayes is a criminal and a thug. But when her young cousin gets caught up with a ruthless drug cartel, Reese might be the only man who can help her. Now London has to make the hardest decision of her life–how far will she go to save her family?

Haven’t started the series yet? You MUST!! These can all be read as standalones, so start where ya want, but why not start from the beginning, since they are all equally fun (and steamy!!). And the book before this one also features “Picnic”, so definitely read it before this one, for maximum enjoyment. Here is Joanna Wylde’s Reapers Motorcycle Club Series Reading Order. And just to give you an idea, here are my book reviews for #1 (Reaper’s Property) & #2 (Reaper’s Legacy).

So ya ready for some insider info? This comes from the author herself:

Hey Maryse – here are five fun facts about the Reapers MC series for you to share with your readers:

1) I never expected the Reapers MC series to take off, which is sort of how I wound up with a hero named Picnic. If I’d truly been considering him as a future writing project, I might have picked something more heroic… On the other hand, I did name the first hero Horse (not exactly heroic), which was initially a placeholder name inspired by my daughter’s stuffed toy. The more I wrote about him as Horse (and the more I learned about real road names) the less I could imagine him with any other name

2) I initially wanted to call Reaper’s Legacy “Fear the Reaper” based off a Blue Oyster Cult song I listened to a lot while I was writing it. That got nixed, because people were concerned it would sound like a horror book instead of a romance.

3)The little town where Marie lived in Reaper’s Property (located in the Yakima valley of Washington state) is based loosely on a combo of Prosser and Union Gap. I was born in the area and still have tons of family there. In that book, I had Picnic bring Marie a box of chocolate covered cherries – those are based on a real product produced in Prosser. Chukkar Cherries makes beautiful, gourmet chocolates using dried fruit grown in the area. Stopping by their tasting room is always a highlight on our trips through the valley. I was there this past weekend

4) Sometimes you hear authors joke that they take revenge by writing characters based on real people who have wronged them and then destroying them in fiction. I wouldn’t say that’s true… but… I have a very good friend who called me up laughing and crying with joy after she read about what happened to “Gary” in Reaper’s Property. For reasons I couldn’t possibly speculate, he reminded her very much of her ex husband. What a coincidence, hmmm?

5) The Reapers MC series would never have happened if it wasn’t for Maryse’s blog. I had written some stories in 2002, but had pretty much given up on fiction after that. Then I got a Kindle for Christmas in 2011 and discovered Maryse’s Facebook page. The amazing indie books I kept finding through the page (and the incredible community inhabiting it!) inspired me to give fiction another shot, and in fall 2012 I wrote Reaper’s Property. It changed my life. Thanks so much to Maryse, but thanks also to the incredible friends I’ve made along the way. Those people I talked books with obsessively right from the beginning are still very close to me… We still talk books all the time, too.

LOL on #4!!! Now THAT is insider info. ;)

Awwwww Joanna!!! I (and so many of us) are thrilled you’re writing these, and delighted at how they’ve taken off. We simply can’t resist your bad boys. You (and they) rock!

You guys ready for that excerpt?


Excerpt from Reaper’s Stand by Joanna Wylde


Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

Present day


Should I look him in the eye when I killed him or just shoot him in the back?

Tough call.

I crouched in the kitchen, digging through my purse as if searching for keys. I knew right where the gun was, of course, but pulling it straight out just seemed so . . . obscene. The smell of dinner on the stove filled my nose. Chicken chili, with whole-grain cornbread in the oven for a side because it’s healthier.

It’d been baking for ten minutes already, which meant I had about twelve more minutes to end his life before the bread burned.

Reese sat out in the dining room, reading one of his motorcycle magazines and drinking his favorite beer while he waited for food. I’d been sure to buy a half rack of it earlier, and I’d met him at the door with a cold one open and ready to go. He was on his second now. I wasn’t under any illusions—two beers wouldn’t be enough to slow him down if he came after me, or ease his pain if my aim was off.

Still, a man deserves a beer before dying, right?

My fingers brushed the cold metal of the gun. I pulled out my phone instead and looked at Jessica’s picture, studying her pretty, smiling face on graduation day. So full of hope and promise. She’d raised her right arm to wave at the camera. Her pinkie curled forward, offering a glimpse of the sparkling tips on her new acrylics. She’d wanted them for graduation so badly. They hadn’t been in the budget, but I couldn’t tell her no.

You have to understand—none of us ever expected Jessica to graduate.

Hell, she shouldn’t even be alive. My b!tch of a cousin had done drugs all through both pregnancies, yet somehow Jessie pulled through. Not unscathed. She had the usual developmental quirks . . . poor impulse control, bad judgment. Quick to anger. They came from fetal drug effects—the gift that keeps on giving for a child’s whole life. But at least she had a life. Her little sister died in the NICU two days after her birth. Never had a chance.

F#@k you, Amber. F#@k you very much for doing that to your kids.

I glanced up at the oven timer and realized I’d wasted nearly three minutes thinking about Jess. I supposed I could kill him after pulling out the bread, but putting it off would just make things harder.

Or maybe I should feed him first?

No. He’d had his beer, but if I had to sit across from Reese over a meal I’d never make it. I couldn’t look into those blue eyes and laugh. I’d never been a good liar. This past month had been heaven and hell rolled into one big bad joke.

Right. Time for the punch line.

I pulled out the small pistol and stuck it into the pocket of the loose sweater I’d picked so carefully for just this moment. I also took out my keys, my ID, and my cash, stuffing them into my jeans. Just in case. I didn’t really expect to survive the night, but it never hurts to hope. The van was even gassed up and ready to go, on the off chance that I managed to get away.

Of course, I had no idea where I’d drive. Burn that bridge when you get to it . . .

Things started going wrong as soon as I walked into the dining room. Reese wasn’t sitting at the head of the table, where I’d left him. Damn. I could’ve shot him in the back without warning if he’d just stayed put. Now he sat facing me, leaning casually in his chair, beer in hand. The magazine lay open before him and he looked up, offering me that mocking smile of his. God, I loved that smile, despite the fact that it could be cruel as all f#@k.

“Something you want to talk about?” he asked, cocking his head.

“No,” I murmured, wondering what he’d say if I shared my thoughts. Gee, Reese, I’m so sorry I’m about to kill you, but if it makes you feel any better I hate myself for doing it—not a hundred percent sure I won’t shoot myself next.

I wouldn’t, though. Not yet. Not until I saw Jessica for myself, made sure they’d kept their promises and she was safe and sound. After that?

Well. We’d just have to see.

He sighed, eyes flickering to my pocket, where my hand shifted nervously on the gun.

Paranoia hit yet again.

He knew. He knew all about it, I could see it in his face. F#@k. I’d failed her . . . Don’t be ridiculous. How could he possibly know?

“Babe, you look like you could use a day off,” he said finally. “Have you considered hitting the spa? Maybe get a massage?”

“That costs too much,” I said automatically, biting back a hysterical laugh. Because money mattered now, right?

“I wasn’t suggesting that you pay for it,” he said, frowning at me.

“I don’t want your money—”

“Yeah, I know, you’re totally independent and you like it that way. Blah, blah. Just let me do something for you, for once. F#@k’s sake.”

Sh!t. Why did he have to be so nice?

I felt my eyes start to water and I looked away, forcing myself to detach again and focus. I needed to kill him, and I couldn’t give him any warning. But he was facing me and all the way across the room, which was a bigger problem than it sounds. Pistols aren’t exactly known for accuracy, and it’s not like I had much in the way of experience.

I needed to get closer.

If I came up behind him, rubbed his shoulders . . . That would be close enough. I hated myself.

“The food won’t be ready for another ten minutes,” I said. “You look sort of tense. Want a neck rub?”

He raised a brow as I circled the table.

“I think you should stay back,” he said slowly. I paused.

“What do you mean?”

“Well, I’d hate to make it too easy for you, sweetheart.”

My chest tightened. I offered a weak smile, because like I said—I’m a sh!t liar.

“I don’t understand.”

“I’m assuming you’re planning to shoot me in the back of the head,” he said quietly, and that’s when I realized he wasn’t relaxed at all. He might be leaning back casually, but every one of those solid muscles roping his body had drawn tight, poised to attack. “That’s a bad idea. You shoot that close, you’ll be all covered in blood spatter. Means you’ll have to risk tracking more evidence out of the house or taking time to clean up. Either way, complicates things.”

Well. At least it was all finally out in the open. Almost a relief. I pulled out the gun and held it up, using my left hand to brace my right as I carefully sighted on him. I expected him to explode up at me, to fight back. Instead he just sat, waiting.

“Go ahead, do it,” he said, a sad smile toying with the corners of his mouth. “Show me what you’re made of.”

“I’m so sorry,” I whispered. “You’ll never know how much I wish this weren’t happening.”

“Then don’t do it. Whatever it is, we can work through it. I’ll help you.”

“You can’t.”

He sighed, then looked past me and jerked his chin.

“It’s over, babe,” I heard a man say from behind. Huh. I guess it was. Fortunately, I had just enough time to pull the trigger before he hit me.

Oh boy. This is quite possibly the hardest ever book question there is. I have to say, my favourite type of bad boy over the last year is biker boys, and Ruger is my favourite, though I’m also loving Picnic. DILF!!! The ‘sexy carrot’ scene in Devil’s Game nearly killed me with laughter.

Becky August 7, 2014 at 8:12 PM

I love the Reapers series!! I love Ruger and Tack… Mr. Motorcycle Man!

Jane Jackson August 7, 2014 at 8:14 PM

Holy Chit!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I’m going to be seriously strung out until I can get and read Picnic’s story and find out what happens next!! lol Favorite Bad Boy… Picnic, of course. (but if I had to choose one that wasn’t in Reaper’s, it would be Shade from Shade’s Fall by Jamie Begley.

Asmaa Qayyum August 7, 2014 at 8:15 PM

I’ve got two favorite book bad boys these days. One is Ruger and the other is Shade from Jamie Begley’s last riders series. Cannot wait for reapers stand.

Mic August 7, 2014 at 8:16 PM

Holy crap! It’s a 50/50 split between Deuce (Madeline Sheehan’s Undeniable) and Horse

Crystal S. August 7, 2014 at 9:59 PM

Hard choice between Horse & Ruger but love both of their dirty mouths but leaning more towards Ruger because of his piercing’s.

Allison August 7, 2014 at 10:13 PM

Oh boy did it to myself again.The wait will take forever now lol. My fave Bad Boy Horse forever.

Amanda August 7, 2014 at 10:29 PM

Well I don’t have just one bad boy lol…I love me some bad boys which I dated a few myself lol…but if I had to say there is three bad boys… from this series it would be Horse all the way…loved him in the first book and he is always been my favorite lol but hopefully Picnic can change my mind for me ;) … from a different series it is Deuce from Undeniable by Madeline Sheehan and Christopher “Outlaw” Caldwell in Misled by Kathryn Kelly….I do have to say though out of all the books I have read my all time favorite series is still the Reapers :) !!! And so far nothing can compare to them lol…no matter how many books I have tried to find to compare to them, its nothing like them lol..

Deb V August 7, 2014 at 10:36 PM

I do love the Reapers, but there is a special place for Tack

Shelby F. August 7, 2014 at 10:40 PM

It has to be Picnic. I just love his character!

Denise torres August 7, 2014 at 10:41 PM

My favorite bad boy Is Travis Maddox, I choose him because he is the first bad by who made me read the book more than one time… I could feel his pain and happiness…

Carolin August 7, 2014 at 11:01 PM

Can’t wait to read this book.
I love the Reapers, esp. Ruger.
Would love to win an ARC. I’m moving next month and I have to buy a kitchen and stuff, so money’s a bit tight right now.
Thanks for giving us a first look at Pinic’s story.

Laura August 7, 2014 at 11:06 PM

Decisions, Decisions…torn between 2, Horse or Shade from Jamie Begley’s Last Riders series. I wouldn’t turn either of them away!!

Marleen August 7, 2014 at 11:07 PM

Cage, Ruger, Tack, but now comes Joseph “Havoc” Mariano. So so many.

Tanja August 7, 2014 at 11:19 PM

I can’t wait for this one!!! Having withdrawal symptoms!

Feifei August 7, 2014 at 11:39 PM

I don’t really have a favorite…there are so many! :D But if I had to choose someone from this series, it’d be Hunter!

Mollie W August 7, 2014 at 11:48 PM

Travis is the ultimate bad boy!!

Dawn Doyle August 7, 2014 at 11:55 PM


Rizos August 8, 2014 at 12:13 AM

Do I have to choose just one? There’s Kaleb Krycheck from the Psy-Changeling series, Zsadist from BDD, Cadeon Woede from IAD, Wraith from Demonica series… From this one it’s a toss up between Ruger and Hunter.

Marie Andersson August 8, 2014 at 12:28 AM

Horse is my favorite bad boy!:)

Stephanie M August 8, 2014 at 12:32 AM

Loved that and Horse will always be my favorite. I read him one night randomly and after that I started reading on the regular again.

Billi Wisecup August 8, 2014 at 12:32 AM

Still think Horses is the Baddest!!!!

Lauren M August 8, 2014 at 12:34 AM

Remington Tate

Trudy August 8, 2014 at 12:48 AM

I have lots of favorite bad boys. However I have really enjoyed Jani Kay’s series with Ryder, Scorpio Stingers VP, and Harrison, detective.

Betty Lopez August 8, 2014 at 12:54 AM

Hmm…my favorite book bad boy is.. ahh but there are so many. But honestly Joanna made me fall for horse. Although I also love viper from the Last Riders series

jeanette hofseth August 8, 2014 at 1:03 AM

Cant wait. I have so many fav bad boys. But from this one its ruger ;)

barb hough August 8, 2014 at 1:04 AM

Oh my!!! Can’t wait for picnic’s story!! So far horse is my fave bad boy.

Stephanie F. August 8, 2014 at 1:04 AM

Remington Tate is high up on the list with Ruger right behind. Both are such sexy bad boys that you can’t help but fall for.
I’m so excited for this book, this is definitely one of my favorite series.

susan beamon August 8, 2014 at 1:32 AM

My favorite book bad boy is not from romances, but science fiction. I met him when I was 12. Not telling you how long ago that was. Some others have come close, but nobody has been him. Northwest Smith is his name.

Amanda Pruissen August 8, 2014 at 1:54 AM

Hmmm… Tough one to decide, but favourite bad boy is by far ZZ in Madeline Sheehan’s Undeniable Series..

Suzanne August 8, 2014 at 3:58 AM

Kane ‘Tack’ Allen…What can I say, he was my first!
Horse, Deuce, Cage, Ripper and the honour roll goes on, all keep that ‘smile’ on my face that Tack put there first :D
Can’t wait for the next Reapers!

Aleksandra A August 8, 2014 at 5:01 AM

Hmmm…favorite book bad boy? Ohhh, this is a tough one, I think I`ll pick Travis Maddox. After all he was my “first”. Beautiful Disaster was my first indie and first NA book. And Travis was such a bad boy that I fell in love with him immediately. And you never forget your first, right? ;)

Thank you for the chance! I ADORE Joanna Wylde <3

Lauren August 8, 2014 at 5:19 AM

Oh I have so many favs. But Kellen from Thoughtless was one of my first all time favs and that story sticks with me.

sandy August 8, 2014 at 6:37 AM

Oh I have so many but will go with Ruger in honor of the Reapers series :)

Tracie Dickinson August 8, 2014 at 6:41 AM

Gotta be Horse. I don’t think I have to explain why :-)

Lisa A. August 8, 2014 at 7:10 AM

Love all the Reaper’s Bad Boys but “Horse” is my favorite so far! Can’t wait for Reaper’s Stand to come out! Thanks for this giveaway! :-)

Teresa H. August 8, 2014 at 7:34 AM

I love this series and can’t wait for the next book. Travis is my favorite bad boy.

Sandy Jones August 8, 2014 at 7:38 AM

I have not read any of these yet. They are on my Large TBR list!! So obviously I do not know who my favorite is yet!

Iveta August 8, 2014 at 7:43 AM

Raw by Belle Aurora :)

Jessica August 8, 2014 at 8:06 AM

I LOVE Hunter.. Total bad boy but yet a sweetheart!

Shenita August 8, 2014 at 8:10 AM

My favorite bad boy is probably Dorian from the Dark Light Series or Max from Beautiful Stranger. Kinda tame I know :) .

Lori Moore August 8, 2014 at 8:32 AM

Kellan Kyle, Colton Donovan or more recently Ryan Campbell

Diane F. August 8, 2014 at 8:45 AM

So hard to choose. ROARK, Adam hauptman, Dax Lahn or maybe Curran, Curran is right up there with Roark cause I’m reading Kate Daniels Series right now. No it’s gotta be Roark

Donya August 8, 2014 at 8:45 AM

WOW! Just freaking WOW! I cannot wait! You know I love so many bad boys, too many to name actually – Colton from “The Driven Trilogy”, Hawk from “Mystery Man”, Zadist from BDB, but if I have to choose, then I would have to start with the one that started my love of all things MC – and that would be Horse. I’d never read an MC book before and after reading that first book and meeting Joanne Wylde, I was hooked!

Julie N. August 8, 2014 at 8:54 AM

I like Horse! He’s pretty bad but so sexy! Just something about a guy on a motorcycle and the name Horse.

Laura Mendez August 8, 2014 at 9:08 AM

I love me some Hawk Delgado from Mystery Man. OMG… I need to meet him and have his babies. Well the version of him ;) I’m sure I can use my hall pass on him :)

Kim Peckitt August 8, 2014 at 9:17 AM

I have a thing for Bikers, Billionaires and Rockstars. Love them hot, moody and totally alpha. With that said, Horse is the man! Love this series. Long live The Reapers!!

Myra N August 8, 2014 at 10:59 AM

BDB’s Zsadist!

Jennifer W August 8, 2014 at 11:08 AM

Wow! That is a hard thing to try and do!!!! I LOVE Travis and Zadist, Ty (Lady Luck) and Horse. To me they are all so different and I can’t pick just one.
Thank you so much Joanna for taking another chance at writing. I have been reading your series since the first release date and could not imagine not having this series to look forward to. You are truly a very talented author that I have recommended to so many friends.

amanda August 8, 2014 at 11:36 AM

all the reaper men are my fav bad boys

Shaneen August 8, 2014 at 12:12 PM

Amanda August 9, 2014 at 6:46 AM

Wow now that’s just plain mean….making us wait after a prologue like that! Also mean to make us choose just one bad boy. But I’d have to go with Ripper. Yup I’m a Ripper girl!

BellaBookaholic August 9, 2014 at 7:23 AM
