Title: Diablo
Series: Night Rebels MC #3
Author: Chiah Wilder
Genre: MC Romance (can be standalone)
Release: June 20, 2017
Diablo, Sergeant-At-Arms of the Night Rebels MC, doesn’t chase women the way his fellow brothers do. Women flock to the ripped, bearded, tatted biker, but he pushes them away. His past haunts him and rage burns deep inside him. His only focus is the club, his Harley, and his shots of whiskey. He doesn’t want a woman messing with his life. He doesn’t trust them. Then he sees her. Her hazel eyes reflect sadness and regret. He’s drawn to the loneliness that fills her up—it haunts him. She’s his employer’s daughter. He knows he should stay away from her, but he can’t. He wants to take her in his arms and protect her, but she won’t even talk to him. Diablo’s not the type to give up. He wants her, and he’ll do everything he can to make her his. Fallon Richardson can’t stand a man’s touch. Ever since her mother left her when she was a young girl, she’s been living in hell. Her father is the kingpin in illegal underground fighting. She tries to make herself inconspicuous so the men won’t notice her and the women won’t make fun of her, but it never works. She hates being at the fights, but her father demands her presence. Then she sees him across the room. His penetrating stare pulls her in no matter how hard she resists. The tall, muscled man stirs feelings in her she has shut off for years. Her body wants him, yet, she can’t give herself to him. Men are cruel, animalistic, and not to be trusted. But the tattooed man has a softness beneath his rough exterior that speaks to her. Then shadows from years ago emerge from the darkness, and soon Fallon doesn’t know who to trust. Her world is turned upside down, and she fears not only for her sanity but for her life. Can Diablo and Fallon gain each other’s trust in time for him to protect her? The Night Rebels MC series are standalone gritty romance novels. DIABLO is Book Three in the series. This book contains violence, strong language, sexual assault (not graphic), and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. HEA. No cliffhangers. 18+.

4 unexpected stars

MC genred novels are some of my favourite. Add the fact that they are dark, and I find them irresistible. Why? Probably because the possibilities are endless and there's so much that an author can do with that kind of story that my curiosity is more than a little piqued, heck, I have this itching in my fingers that make me HAVE to read the book just to find out what happens to their characters and whether or not they were able to redeem themselves in the end. It's absolutely thrilling and something that makes me want to read more and more from the author. So when Chiah Wilder, a new author for me, wrote a dark MC romance about two broken individuals who suffer from their past, I just had to get my hands on it.

4 breath taking dreams

Diablo was nothing like I expected. As part of a series, I was happy to realize that I didn't need to have read the previous instalments to know what's going on. Honestly, it felt like an entire new story that even though it was set in a motorcycle club, it was easy as a standalone. These characters are broken, so damaged from their past that trust doesn't happen easily for them, and yet, when it came to one another, it just seemed as though the big things disappeared. They could laugh, live, forget and even hope for something they never thought they could: to be loved in return. Fallon was a conundrum. As the daughter of a man responsible for an underground illegal fight club, i didn't expect her to be so shy or as brusque as she was when she's laid a compliment. The reason for her limp was a secret for quite some time, but I did enjoy the fact that it was a mystery for as long as it was so that you could get to know the woman before feeling bad that rolls treated her horribly after what happened. When it came to Diablo, he was more of a straightforward man ~ either he liked you or he didn't, but there wasn't really any middle ground.

While the way that the story was developed allowed you to get to know these two characters, my mind did manage to wander every so often on who the other characters were ~ those that are part of the MC, and I did wonder what their story is and whether they found their very own HEA or at least their HEAFN. While I liked he premise of the story and the development of it as well, I had a bit more troubles connecting with these two characters, and that could be because I wasn't aware of what the previous life stories was about, but that doesn't go to say that I didn't like this book, because I did. I'd be curious to read more from Chiah Wilder in the future and see if each book in her series can be read as a standalone.

Chiah Wilder is the author of Hawk’s Property, the first book in the Insurgents MC Series. It is a full length, standalone novel. Its release date is set for October 27, 2015.

Always a lover of books, she began writing at a young age and continued through college with collections of short stories. Figuring she had to grow up and get a “real” job, her writing was placed on the back burner. 

Her love of reading has always be center front in her life. Chiah’s love of bad boys both in and out of fiction has inspired her Insurgents series. She loves an alpha male whose softer side is brought out by a passionate, spirited woman. In fiction there are no rules or boundaries, and fantasies can go as far as the characters want to take them. Steamy, biker romances with rough, sexy bad boys are her guilty pleasure along with brownies, cheddar cheese, and movie marathons. 

Returning to writing has been a dream come true. Writing and publishing Hawk’s Property has been an amazing journey, and she is happy to share the Insurgents family with her readers. She is busy writing her next book in the series.

Chiah would love to hear from you. You can contact her at:
