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 One of the Best MC Books 31 August 2015
By Sassy Southern Book Blog - Published on
This is the first book from Darby Briar. I loved this book. This is a really hard review to write because I want to say so much about it but without giving to much away! Ember is running from her past well rather trying to escape her past. She has been brought to clubhouse of an MC. The acting president, Maverick really doesn't want her there because she reminds him of his past and everything he felt like he lost. Maverick treats her like she is the maid of the clubhouse and makes her clean everything and cook. The guys love her cooking and set alarms just to get up and eat breakfast. Maverick thinks she is naive to the world and calls her Doll.

Ember thinks Maverick is the devil himself and nicknames him Lucifer. Everyone treats her with respect except Maverick. She does everything he ask but still treats her bad. She knows that is not her but him and his past that makes him this way. As time goes on the chemistry between the two of them becomes hotter and hotter. But can Maverick get over his past to have a real future? Can Ember really escape her past to have a future when so many people are looking for her?

I loved this book and it is one of those I wish I could read over again for the first time. It was just that GOOD! It has definitely made my top 10 of 2015!

4.0 out of 5 stars Which way will Ember burn! 28 August 2015
By Avidrunner - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Gifted an ARC for an honest review. Burning Ember is an MC read that has an interesting twist to it. Ember is strong, has a sharp tongue and woman that is a survivor. On the flip side of that she has a chose to make. Either be helpful to one man or be truthful with the other. Whatever her decision there will be a consequence. Maverick, Maverick, Maverick: He comes at you like a bull seeing red. Oh my there is so much more to this alpha. You get involved with these characters and the story. What will Embers final decision be and what are the deep layers to Maverick? Great start and I am looking forward to book #2.
