Tulsa, Oklahoma, 2001.
Caleb Mathews is caught between two worlds: Osage Nation, the world of his ancestors, and the Brazen Bulls MC, the world of his brothers. Straddling both, he struggles to be steady in either. The pull he feels most strongly is to his club. There, he knows he'll someday find his place to stand. But to choose them is to betray his blood.
After her father's violent death, Cecily Nielsen turned her back on the Brazen Bulls—the world that her father helped create, and the only family she'd ever known. Now, she's lost in the dark, unsure of what she has or who she is. Going nowhere, toward nothing, and spiraling out of control.
When Cecily finds herself in danger, it's the Bulls she calls for rescue, and Caleb who answers. She doesn't want to need the Bulls, whom she blames for her father's death—and she especially doesn't want to need Caleb, who's seen her at her worst. But in her lowest moment, she calls out for the family she remembers, and Caleb brings her home.
At Cecily's side as she finds her footing, Caleb finds his as well. Together, they stand on solid ground, and they keep each other steady when the club and the world itself fall into chaos.
The one who's seen the worst of you and stays strong at your side is the one to hold close.
