Hawks MC: Ballarat Charter
Come meet Talon, Griz, Killer, Blue, Stoke and Julian
Zara Edgingway is a twenty-six-year-old secretary. She has a daughter that apparently knows-it-all and a best friend that could possibly have the mouth of Satan, but she's been with her through hell and back. Then there's the hunk'a'licious biker neighbour finally showing interest in her.
If only she isn't about to face her next obstacle in life, the one she ran from six years ago: her ex husband.
Talon Marcus is the president of the Hawks Motorcycle Club. For two years, he's had his eye on the quiet, reclusive, yet sassy, neighbour Zara. Finally, he has the chance to claim her as his woman. Just when her past catches up with her, she'll need, not only his protection, but the help from his biker brothers.
Now, if only she'd stop fighting him along the way.
Deanna Drake has a past she longs to forget, but won't ever be able to. She's always been the tough one. No one, but her best friend Zara has ever been able to penetrate her cold, hard, shell.
Griz— a.k.a Grady Daniels, Hawks Motorcycle Club second in command, also has a past that he wishes he could undo...all except one part.
It's her past that brings them together. Only will it be forever?
In a moment of weakness, Ivy Morrison tells a lie, a lie which will leave her scrambling for a solution and quick. The perfect solution comes well-packaged in the form of broody and sinfully sext Fox Kilpatrick, courtesy of Find Your Soul Mate online dating service. Desperate times is most definitely a call for desperate measures. With no other choice, Ivy convinces passionate yet possessive Fox to help her in her time of need.
Fox 'Killer' Kilpatrick is still caught up in his past, a past of anger and death, which his biker brothers desperately want him to recover from. Losing a bet, Killer finds himself on a blind date with Ivy, the woman who is set to turn his world upside down.
Following your heart is never easy, neither is following an unknown path, but finding out may just be worth the journey to possibility. Only together, will Ivy and Killer discover if it was worth the risk after all.
At twenty-four, Clarinda James has lived a traumatic life. One of the last images she saw before losing her sight was that of her parents' death. The nightmares of that time still haunt her every night.
Taken in at nineteen by her sister, Clary didn’t know there was going to be a price to pay, a price far greater than her blindness. It’s not until Blue walks into her life, she realizes it’s possible to experience the joy of warmth. In her darkness, Blue will become her beacon, her guide. Little does she know that she’ll need to count on Blue more than she thought she would.
She has to…if she wants to stay alive.
Blue Skies is on the lookout for a woman. Always there to support his brothers, Talon and Griz, he’s not a stranger to the craziness of love or life. Nor is he a stranger to making it clear that comments surrounding his name are out of bounds. Despite the often effed-up situations his brothers find themselves in as a result of their women, he’s more than happy to settle down when he finds his missing piece.
After three weeks of seeing a gorgeous redhead in a café, he refuses to let the opportunity pass him by. Building a tentative relationship with Clary is no easy task; she’s damaged. It’s not until he discovers the truth behind her darkness that he willingly lays claim to her. He is determined to protect her, no matter the cost. She is irrefutably his.
Trapped in a marriage since the age of twenty-one, Malinda May is finally free. Having lost her biker husband, she is determined to keep her two teenage children as far away from the MC lifestyle as possible, a lifestyle which has brought her nothing but heartache and fear.
Life is never that simple.
Relentless in their mission to prove to Malinda that not all bikers are bad, the Hawks’ women are determined to support Malinda and her family, whether she wants it or not. In her struggle to keep her distance, Malinda soon battles her desire to keep her family safe or relent and begin to trust the MC.
Tired of women and their mind games, Declan Stoke knows women are only good for keeping his bed warm for a night. Having once thought he’d found the one, he’s no longer willing to put his heart on the line. Even when faced with the temptation of a wounded, sexy woman, he steers clear…well, tries to.
Malinda and Stoke find themselves at an impasse, one seemingly impossible to navigate through. With trouble brewing, life is going to get complicated, and for Malinda, she’s trapped with no way out.
Living a lie, Matthew ‘Mattie’ Alexander is exhausted. It’s not easy to keep up the pretence, the deceit, but it’s safer. Coming out to a world who so easily hate takes a courage he’s yet to find, so he pretends – pretends to be into women – pretends to love being a part of the university’s football team. It keeps him safe, hidden.
Until he meets Julian.
From the moment they first meet, Mattie knows life is about to change. He’s yet to determine if it is for the better or worse.
Living life through laughter, Julian is lonely. Without the jokes, the humour, he would be living on the edge of depression. Succumbing to his controlling father’s demands, Julian finds no joy in the path laid out before him.
Until he meets Mattie.
As soon as they cross paths, Mattie has the power to drive Julian’s man parts crazy with lust. But can lust be enough to help Mattie out of the closet, and guide Julian into a happier place?
Limits will be pushed. Rules will be broken. But it’s only together, that they will have the strength to overpower fear, fear of themselves and fear of others. Just how far are they willing to go in the aim of coming out?
No Way Out

“Kitten, I don’t know why you’re botherin’ with so much fuckin’ food. We ate a shit load at breakfast,” I said and leaned back against the bench taking a sip of my coffee. My woman smiled at me and swayed her hips as she made her way slowly over to me. I fuckin’ loved my woman, with every breath I took. I smirked as she curled her arms around my neck and brought my mouth down to meet hers.
She pulled back and grinned right before her palm connected to the back of my head. “Not another word, Talon Marcus. Nothing more about how much I cook, clean and panic about how I want everything to be perfect for Christmas lunch or I will cut off my most favourite part of you.” She pushed back. “And then imagine how cranky I’d be if I didn’t get a bit of hanky-panky off my pain-in-the-butt alpha biker man. You know I love Christmas, you know I love to cook and want everything perfect. So if I get stressed over it, so be it, it’s one day of the year where I’ll be out of sorts, but it’s the best day because we get all our family to come together—”
“Kitten.” She stopped her rant and glared at me. “I don’t give a fuck, have at it, I just like playin’ with you. “ I chuckled. My woman rolled her eyes, shook her head and went back to whatever the hell she’d been doing. I wasn’t sure what is was there was crap everywhere I looked. “So who is actually comin’ today?”
“Mum, siblings, their tribes and they all should be here soon to help me in the kitchen. Then everyone from Hawks is coming at twelve.”
Fuck me. The house was gonna be packed.
“Honey, before you panic. I’ve asked Cody to wrangle the kids and set up outside.”
“I should go see if they need any help,” I said sitting my mug in the sink.
“Or to see if they’re killing each other.”
I chuckled. “That also.”
“Mum, Dad,” was bellowed from down the hall.
“Kitchen, Maya and stop yellin’,” I called.
Quick footsteps sounded before her sixteen-year-old head popped around the corner. The fuckin’ years had flown by all of them unreal. Still, all of them came with a new situation. Whether it was from the twins gettin’ into fights at school or to Cody’s women comin’ around to cause shit or somethin’ new happenin’ at one of the Hawks charters.
Then there was Maya.
Our girl was a treasure. A true princess within the club. She studied hard, met her curfew, never got in trouble and didn’t fight back on house rules.
“What do you need, sweetie?” Zara asked. I curled my arm around my woman’s shoulders and brought her close to my side.
“Just needed to know if my boyfriend can come to lunch?”
My body tensed. My heart fuckin’ stopped and I took back everything I just thought. I was surprised all my hair didn’t fall out from the shock while my mind chanted over and over kill, kill, kill.
“Boyfriend?” I snarled. “You’re sixteen, why in the fuck you thinkin’ about dating? You’re too young. Who in the fuck is this punk thinkin’ he can date my daughter? My sixteen-year-old daughter. No way in hell, kid.”
“Dad,” she whined. “Cody was dating at fifteen. All my friends are dating.”
“So?” I yelled and stood straight. “They gonna get high on dope you gonna follow them and do the same? My girl does not date or I’ll kill the fucker who thinks he can—”
“Talon,” Zara warned.
“What?” I snapped. “Jesus.” I sighed and rubbed my chest. Maya, my sweet Maya dating some snivelling little cocksucker. Not gonna fuckin’ happen.
“Honey,” Zara said in sweet tone, a tone that told me she thought I was being cute-stupid and overeating. “She’s sixteen, it was bound to happen sooner or later.”
Shaking my head, I glared. “Later, much, much later.”
Zara snorted and turned to Maya. “He can come.”
“What?” I barked. “Kitten,” I growled low and then I studied my woman. “Fuck. Fuckin’ hell. You knew about this? You knew she was dating? How long you been keepin’ this from me?” I demanded.
“It’s only new. She was scared to tell you because,”—she gestured to all of me with her hands—“of how you’d react.”
“Who?” I bit out and watched my woman’s mouth twitch.
“Texas,” Maya supplied.
My eye widened.
Texas. That shit. He was six years older that my girl.
“No. Fuck me.” I grabbed my hair between my hands and pulled, then thrusted them out in the air before they landed on my hips. “He’s twenty-two for fuck sake. I know. I remember what twenty-two year old biker guys are like. I’d been one and that shit is fucked up. My daughter is not dating some older fuckface. ”
“Honey,” Zara said softly and then started giggling.
“What?” I snapped and looked to Maya to see her hand covering her mouth.
“Dad, I’m sorry. So sorry, but I had to see how you’d react if I was to start dating anyone.”
“What?” I barked.
My daughter walked over to me and wrapped her arms around my waist, her head rested against my chest. I was still tense to hug her back.
“One day, Dad, I will start dating. I just need you to be prepared for it.”
“Fuckin’ hell. My head nearly exploded off my head. You’re still and will always be my little girl, like Ruby is also. I don’t know if I can handle you both dating.”
She pulled back and asked, “But it’s okay if Drake and Cody do?”
I raised a brow. “Ah, yeah, it’s different for a guy.”
“Talon.” Zara warned. “That is exactly why I told Maya to test you out. Double standards in this house will not do.”
I pointed at my woman. “You put her up to this?”
She balked. “Well, no, not really, um…she came to me and told me she liked someone—”
“Mum,” Maya cried.
Turning my glare to my daughter, I asked, “You like someone?”
“No,” she said with her own glare.
“Who?” I demanded.
“I’m not telling you. He doesn’t even know so there is no way—”
“Texas,” I snarled. “Or else you wouldn’t have said his name in the first place.”
Maya blushed and stomped her foot. “Dad, don’t you dare do or say anything. If you do—”
“Hello?” was called from the front room before Josie, Pick and Billy walked in. “We’re extra early, but I knew you’d need some help.” Josie smiled. My woman rushed over to her sister and kissed her cheek before stealing Josie’s kid outta her arms. “I also brought some extra help.”
Pick and Billy moved further in the room to make room for Dodge, Low, Rommy and…fuckin’ Texas.
“Dang,” Zara whispered with wide eyes going from Texas to me.
“Dad, don’t,” Maya snapped out the corner of her mouth before walking off to greet her aunt and uncles.
Eyeing Texas I waited for his gaze to meet mine and when it did he paled when I mouthed, “I’m watching you.”
I hated the thought of my kids growing up feelin’ pain and dealin’ with bad shit. Though, as much as it killed me, mistakes happened in life and sometimes it’d be good if they’d learn from it. Which was I wasn’t burying Texas’s body already.
The End...for now.
Eventually I will be looking at doing novels for all Hawks children!
