The first in a new sexy romance series from bestselling author Chantal Fernando about the bad boys of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and the women who fall in love with them.

When I found my boyfriend cheating on me, I did something stupid.

Or should I say, someone?

Because of that mistake, I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong in.

I’m a law student. They’re criminals. He’s the vice president of a motorcycle club. I’m a good girl with a strict upbringing. He’s my ex-boyfriend’s brother.

And I’m screwed.


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I really loved Dragon’s Lair. It is a lighter MC read, granted, but I believe this was done deliberately so I am rating accordingly. 

What I like foremost in a book is the feeling I get when I connect with the main characters. If I don’t have that, I got nothing. 

I loved, Dex aka Sin, Tracker, Arrow, Rake, Irish and also prospect, Vinnie.

These lads all make an entrance and show us a little bit more of their personality in this first instalment.

They are fun, yet there is still this dangerous don’t fark with me, about them.

I did get a twist in the story I didn’t see coming, and I like when that happens.

There are fun moments and there are deeper moments. 

This was a super quick read for me about the same time it takes me to read an Abbi Glines , Sea Breeze novel.

I have been reading a lot of looonnnggg books lately and Dragon's Lair arrived on my doorstep from the publisher and I cracked it open late that night. 

Chantal kept me up until 2.49am and I finished it off in the morning. It was only like a three to four hour read for me.

What I liked about this MC read was Chantal made it her own. She wasn’t afraid to have Faye behave the way she did around the Wind Dragons members, even Jimbo, LOL! 

I will leave you to work that out.

I am really looking forward to reading Arrow’s Hell next.

Here’s a taste of Arrow. 

I walk out into the kitchen the next morning rubbing my eyes. I stop in my tracks as I see a man standing over the stove.

Naked.

He has an extremely white ass and is frying something in the pan.

“There goes my appetite,” I mutter to myself. Arrow turns around, completely unabashed.

“Mornin’,” he says, checking out my pajamas. I stare at his huge penis in horror but am unable to move my eyes away. Suddenly, it gets hard, pointing right at me. Like an arrow.

Lightbulb moment.

“Seriously?” I say, covering my eyes with my hand.

“Bit late for that,” he says, chuckling. “I saw you looking.”

“And I saw you saw me looking,” I reply, pouring myself some juice and averting my gaze.

“I think I had the wrong idea about you...” he says, turning back to the stove.

“How so?”

He shrugs. “Thought you were some tramp trying to trap Dex.”

“And how do you know I’m not?” I ask him.

“Good sense of character,” he says. “I’m never wrong.”

“Bold claim,” I say as he turns around. My eyes straight away lower. I can’t even help it.

I point at it when he takes a step in my direction. “Don’t being that thing near me!”

He laughs. “It won’t bite you; don’t worry.”

“You’re weird,” I announce.

He shakes his head. “Do you just say the first thing that pops up into your fuckin’ head?”

I think it over. “Pretty much. Is that going to be a problem?”

“Probably.”



Just for the record, I would have peeked too.

  1. Arrow is really manning up to his name. I get wary with MC books, I don't like it when they treat their women like chattel, cheat and cuss them out, then promise them forever next time. Does this have that?

    1. Matey!! No it doesn't. I do hear you with what you are saying. This is a much lighter MC read. Very quick read and I think the lads personalities are fun. :)
