Final main book in the Rebel Wayfarers MC saga.
For years, agoraphobic Cassandra Williamson has struggled to keep her world from collapsing entirely by pushing to do things that bring her pleasure, even as they carry fear. Acquiring art is one outlet she doggedly pursues, determined to bring compelling pieces into her life, even at the cost of nerve-racking visits to crowded gallery showings.
A long-time admirer of reclusive artist Isaiah Rogers, Cassie has made a point to snap up what she can of the increasingly rare pieces of artwork the biker-turned-painter makes publicly available. Any evening spent at one of his showings becomes a longed-for escape from her ever-narrowing world. The thing with these showings though, is to see…you must also be seen.
After organizing a meeting with the pretty, blonde art-lover Hoss found so intriguing, his emotions are stirred for the first time in years by a curiosity that feels inexplicably more. He’s been alone for such a long time, could this be his chance to find love again?
Even with many enemies defeated, life in an outlaw MC is never easy, or safe, and Hoss is forced to make a choice: His happiness, or perhaps her very life.

About the Author
Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library, devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she says "I've always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and found I adored that, too. For reading...if nothing else is available, I've been known to read the back of the cereal box." Oatmeal is her comfort food. She hates gardening but loves flowers; not cut arrangements, but in the wild, outside. She has a deep and abiding respect for our military. Her dad was career Air Force and parades make her cry. Walking Dead is about the only TV she watches anymore, don't bother her on Walking Dead night, when she's been known to shout, "Go Team Darryl!" Yes, she's still sad about Firefly. She's a hockey fan, like ... a serious hockey fan. She's loyal to the Edmonton Oilers, but asks that we don't judge her about that. She also likes the Nashville Predators and Ottawa Senators. The local ECHL team, the Fort Wayne Komets, are a fav of hers, and she has season tickets. She'll also generally try to hit the road games within a hundred-mile radius. She's a wanna-be hiker, working on a "bucket list" of hikes like Knobstone (completed in four days mid-April 2014 - whoooo!), sectioning parts of the AT, and now and then looking west towards PCT. She embraces her inner geek; MariaLisa has been working in the tech field for a couple decades. A sometime PC gamer, she still plays EverQuest after all these years. She says, "What can I say, I'm loyal (see above, I'm an Oilers fan LOL). Yes, I've heard of WoW, and have a coupla toons there, too." On music, she says, "I love music of nearly any genre -- jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap, hip hop...you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars [read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection of premium tequila, then that's a plus!" Her short bio reads, "Plate-spinner / cat herder at work; totally geeked author; single mom in the thick of autism at home; hockey freak; wanna-be hiker; usta-be/on-again EQ gamer."

I’ve always wondered if Hoss would get another HEA after his wife dies...I’m so glad that he does! He was a good husband and an even better father, he deserved to find happiness and I’m thrilled he finds it with Cassie! Cassie...what a strange chick. It’s very obvious that something horrible happened to her to, as traumatized as she is. Broke my heart when she finally tells her story. Why all the anxiety to the point where she had it was a bit confusing as she wasn’t like that before her incident, I totally understand some quirks, but not even able to order at a restaurant...strange thing for someone who was basically normal for most of her life. Equating that with her incident doesn’t really compute to me, but as with Hoss, Cassie deserved love and to trust. Hoss gave her that, heck the entire club gave her that! Overall a great addition to RWMC series! Best Bikers ever!!! (MdM...is there going to be a spinoff? Too many things were left up in the air...just wondering!)
Not ML's best work. It might be the last Rebel Wayfarers book but there were so many loose ends. So, overall, very frustrating. A few misses on the editing. Mostly, bouncing perspectives, from 1st person to 3rd person, in the last chapter. Not a horrible book, just not what I've come to expect from ML. Again, so many, many unexplained, left behind, scenes and just loose ends. Very frustrating. Very.
