Product description

Product Description

The last thing she needs after running from one monster is to land in the lair of the Devil.

Twenty-one year old Ember flees her past with soot on her face, ash in her hair, and a promise. She’ll never let another man take away her freedom and treat her like she means nothing.

But that is exactly what Maverick Gunn, leader of the notorious Harbingers of Chaos motorcycle club seeks to do from the moment his lethal gaze locks on her. He burns her with every look. Every touch. Every word.

Ember’s only hope is to convince him she’s nothing like the woman who blackened his soul before he drags her down into the darkness with him.

WARNING: For Mature Audience 18+
Contains Adult Sexual Situations & Language

"My saint and my sinner. My dark angel."

BURNING EMBER was fan-freakin-tastic in every single way possible!!! It was PERFECTION all wrapped up in this one book!!

This book had all the EPIC FEELS and sent me on an exquisite journey of passionate love, trust, loyalty, survival, and brotherhood. I was a maniac as I devoured this book within days, utterly spellbound and addicted to Darby Briar's beautiful prose. The storyline was fascinating and heartbreaking; her characters so complex with torturous pasts and demons; and the love between Maverick Gunn and Ember Pierce was electrifying, intense and soul deep.

I alternated between the ebook and audiobook as I immersed myself into the tumultuous love story of Mav and Ember. I absolutely ADORED the audiobook. The narrators breathed so much life into all of the characters in this book. If I closed my eyes, I could see scenes playing right in front of me - Ms. Briar's descriptions are so brilliantly written and when coupled with the talented narrators, I felt as if I was watching a movie unfold! Sheer brilliance!

To say that I was floored by this debut novel would be an understatement! My mind was blown away by this book! My heart broken into a million pieces (and put back together again!). I am in sheer awe and appreciation for Ms. Briar and her writing prowess. I still can't stop thinking about this book - I can still hear Mav's voice in my head, and I still feel the heart palpitations and goosebumps all over my body. This story has consumed me and will stay with me forever!

Omg i loved this! As soon as i started reading i was hooked from the first page, i couldnt put it down i got sucked in from the start. First i got the sample to see if i like it, by the end of chapter one i was one clickin it!
Mav is dammm HOT , i loved the gentle caring side but when Luce came out to play hold on to your panties cuz that man is sexy a sin.
Ember is strong, determined and been through so much in her life but never lets any of it break her completely evan after pain she went through.
Mav and Embers love is epic, its a bumpy, its heartbreaking and its sexy as hell.

If your tryin to decide to one click or not, im tellin you now dont evan think twice about just ONE CLICK, you will not be disappointed!
I cant wait for more, definitely looking foward to the next book n hopefully more after that on the men of Harbingers Of Chaos MC.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am speechless right now, even in writing this 30 August 2015
By Deborah - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow, what an epic story. I love MC books and this is hands down one of the best! It was a long book but not once did I feel like flipping through pages. I appreciate you giving us this in one book, not drawing it out into 2 or 3 segments like so many writers do now. Although I thought Mav was a jerk in the beginning, you gave us his story and made us understand why he was. But boy did he come full circle, by the 50% range I was absolutely in love with him. You made Ember so strong with what she went through, thanks for not giving us a doormat. This book had HOT sex, it was intense and a great start to what I hope is a series, I would like to see D get his HEA too. Thanks for an exciting and epic love story and they way you wrote, I felt like I was there with them the entire time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't sleep on Darcy Briar. 1 September 2015
By Romance Diva - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
New authors need reviews. I am a lazy reader, I like to read reviews but rarely do them. A book has to be either 1) Really good or 2) Really horrible for me to be pushed into doing a review. Darcy Briar's freshman effort was 'Really Good". I enjoyed the fact that she penned a full and robust story that wasn't littered with typos. I love that she created a world that you could get lost in. I love that she fully fleshed out the couples history and character makeup in terms of showing and telling.

We meet the heroine (Ember/Pumpkin/Doll) when she is on the run from someone and something horrid (her abusive ex). Ember literally had to burn her way out and he is looking for her. She nearly gets raped and is saved by (Ivy) who we never see after the first chapter, but Briar's writing is so nuanced that the impression is made there. She is rescued by Lily and taken to the clubhouse, where Lily spins a tale to stop her from being a "clubpiece".

We met the Hero (Maverick/Luce) at the club and he is angry, bitter and hates/lusts Ember on sight. He is mean, dismissive, cruel and abusive towards her. I think a reader should be prepared for that. Because that is what makes Darcy Briar one to watch. She takes all of these obstacles and she weaves a story that leaves you hopeful and entertained. Mav hates the fact that he feels lust and possessiveness over Ember. He hates the fact that he is jealous of his brother for wanting Ember. He hates the thought of ANYONE other than him touching her, but he can't trust his own judgement. It's let him down and caused his club too much in the past.

The rollercoaster is worth it, because while this book is clearly the first in the series, our couple gets an HEA. And let's be honest, to any authors reading this, that is ALL the audience wants.

5.0 out of 5 stars SMOKIN'! 27 August 2015
By American Girl! - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is so HOT - and not just because of the title. I won't repeat the blurb because you can read that for yourself, but wait until you start turing the pages. You will not be putting this bad boy down. Ms. Briar is excellent at her craft. She weaves an intricate story of suspense, murder, and steamy sex. She knows precisely how to tease her readers. How far to go. How close to the 'burning embers' to take her readers. Ember is surprisingly strong. Mav is deliciously brooding and dark. And you? Plain and simple, you're gonna want more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulously well-written adventure! 8 December 2015
By Helen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I cannot believe how good this book was. I read a lot and unfortunately I come across a fair amount of mediocre books. I was so in the mood for a great book and was lucky enough to stumble upon this treasure. Is this really the author's first book? Unbelievable. This book is fabulously well-written, interesting, exciting, intricate. Really I cannot say enough good things. I do not like sweet romance. I like action, adventure, and bloodshed with a great HEA! This book delivers. I can hardly wait for the next books featuring the HOC.

Spoiler alert: I almost missed this great book because I thought I would not like the plot so I wanted to warn you in case you are like me. It starts with our h homeless, penniless, and hiding from her evil ex and the police who are in his rich family's pocket. Great so far. Then she is befriended in a store by an old lady from the HOC MC who invites her to go back with her to the clubhouse. I am still good. Then while Lily, the old lady, is checking out, a corrupt policeman recognizes the h and threatens to arrest her unless she gathers information about the MC for him. I almost stopped right there. I did not think that was going to be a plot I liked. Fortunately the writing was so superb that I decided to keep going. Also fortunately this was really not a major plot issue but just a reason for the h to stay with the MC even though the H is less than inviting to her initially. She does not want to get arrested and she has no place to go. The corrupt policeman does show up much later in the plot for a different reason and the h never meets with him prior to that, never gathers any information for him, and is never accused of being a police mole. Yea! There are a lot of plot twists and turns and trust is a major issue with so much going on but the h never betrays the H's trust so I was happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST MC book EVER written! Hands down! PERIOD! And her writing style is....... simply fantastic! No comparison! 18 September 2015
By Jan Edling - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
by far the BEST MC book out there!!!!! And I've read hundreds. This author blew it out of the park! HUGE connection ... with everyone! Between the H and h for sure!!!! But all the side characters were fantastic to. This book had it all!!!!!!! It has been ages since I've read a book twice. I might even admit I read parts(my bookmarks) so many times I could quote them. The ONLY thing I am upset about is I can't read more from this author. This is her first (and only book at this time).
This book: great plot!!!!! Tons of action!!! Tons of suspense. Some angst (which I hate too much of but she did beautifully with this here). INTENSE heat between, hell, almost all the characters! But especially the H and h. In my opinion, the BEST H and h ever written!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let me put it this way.. I was on a vacation I had planned for months when I added this to my kindle. And I found myself ANXIOUS to get back to my hotel room so I could get back to this book! Poor hubby did not understand (or appreciate) this.
lastly, I never have given any book 5 stars. Because I think every book could have done a tiny bit better, somewhere in the book. This book...??? NOPE. Every damn sentence was written beautifully and could not have been better!
