Product Description

Ryder Axton

I always fight hard, f*ck harder, and never let myself get personally involved. But my assignment to apprehend Eduardo Miguel comes to a grinding halt when I find a missing federal witness held captive in his basement. It becomes fucking personal, fast!

Keeping Farrington safe, even if it--or more likely she--kills me, is now my only mission. But she's terrified and fights me at every turn. Earning her trust becomes more than a way to save both our lives, it's like an addictive drug. I need it--I need her to put her faith in me.

When she begins investigating the hidden parts of my soul, I almost can't deny her. I know I can protect her. I know I could pleasure her in one explosive night she'd always remember and I'd never forget. What I don't know is how I could be falling so hard. There's no way in hell I can let that happen; getting too close to me comes with an ominous curse that won't be defied.
I thought I had nothing to lose. I was wrong.

Rachel Farrington

I should've never taken that dangerous shortcut through the unlit alley to the frat party. It was where I saw a fellow student brutally murdered and how I made my way onto a cartel leader's hit list.
As a federal witness, I thought I was safe in the protective custody of the FBI . . . that is until I woke up chained in the monster's basement.

When a powerful and lethal soldier claiming to be a bounty hunter shows up, I'm not sure if he's rescuing me or dragging me towards a greater hell. But after a series of experiences that defy death, the overwhelmingly sexy, dirty-minded, Navy Seal trained and hot blooded bounty hunter--who obviously plays by his own rules--just might win my trust.

He is not an ordinary man. He's strong, dark and deadly; his past is mysterious and his motives unreadable. He seems to be made of the stuff of myth and legend, and of ink and steel.

Is Ryder Axton for real? Or is he employed by my captor for a more sinister purpose?

When death comes, can we defy it... again?

An Action-packed crime drama/romance standalone in the Brother's of Ink and Steel series
***Each novel in the Brothers of Ink and Steel series focuses on one couple's journey to their HEA

Well-written, well-defined characters and a good/uncomplicated plot (with a few twist). This narrative gripped my interest from the start. I've read all The Brothers of Ink, so far, and this one certainly didn't disappoint.

The story moves at an appropriate pace, depending on the situation - action, suspense, intimacy, reveals, dialogue, growing bonds, etc. There were no stagnant sections and the narrative flowed so easily. It has a different feel to the others as the scenario ignited quickly and the bulk of the story was set within a small snatch of time.

The two main characters were simply gorgeous and very easy to warm to. Both had their challenges and issues to fight through. Rachel - a beautiful, driven, intelligent, insightful and feisty young woman. Ryder - a savvy, larger than life hero with a patched-up shattered soul. Their predicament seemed inescapable and grim,'s an HEA after all.

Loved it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional,exhilarating and highly recommended 3 December 2015
By E.B. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
( apologies for any spelling errors)

This deserves way more than 5 stars. I've highly anticipated this release, after seeing Ryder in Josh and Liam's books I wanted his own story so badly I swear I mentally demanded it and thank goodness she delivered one Heck of an amazing, high octane, high energy, vibrating with life of its own story. Ryder is everything I expected from previous descriptions and he did not disappoint in any aspect. I could picture him as described reading his parts and through Rachel's pov that gave me his image perfectly. He's the every man's man. The total package that makes me glad he's fiction because if he was real I have a feeling he wouldn't be safe from any woman. He is just....WOW. And I know that seems vague but if you even want to know what I mean read the book.

Rachel was exactly like you would expect if a captive trying to just survive. Her Kev of stubbornness perfectly fought against Ryders rescue attempts that I literally laughed as I saw those scenes play out in my.mind like a movie. Everything just suited the story perfect like it was drawn up by devine intervention.

Overall thoughts of this story.
Definitely worth the read, the reread and reading again and again. The entire series plus the North series is a series I highly recommend.

Storyline: Starts out strong and doesn't taper into boredom at any time.

Character development: Each character had a well written, well thought out part.

Scene emotions: so well written I think of you don't feel what the characters do reading this you are not human(jk)

Read the North series featuring Josh's brothers, then the Brothers of Ink and Steel series. Definitely not sorry I started. I can't wait to see what Mousseau brings us next.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yet I was seriously disappointed with this one 31 January 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read all of the books in this series. Yet I was seriously disappointed with this one. Honestly, I did not finish this book before removing it from my kindle.

*** MINOR SPOILERS** He rescues her and suddenly it feels like instant love. I get there are people out there who believe that love at first sight happens. Or they believe that amazing circumstance can bring about undying love. I however want a story that shows the build between to characters. A story that gives them the chance to really get to know one another. This story did not do that.
5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Hotness! 2 December 2015

Just finished Defy.........Holy Hotness! Ryder, Ryder ,Ryder....where can I find me a man like that? And Rachel. Well I must admit I got a little miffed at Rachel when she kept trying to figure out if Ryder was a good guy or bad guy. Get out of your head woman and LOOK at what he's doing! I did like how Ryder was able to look at it from her point of view and figure out where her head was at though. I don't want to reveal too much but I do want to encourage you to read it. I was captivated and read it in one afternoon! Excellent dialog, could see everything in my mind. And I do LOVE a man in his dress uniform! So far, I've read all of Brothers of Ink and Steel and I DEFINITELY look forward to the rest of the series. While waiting for the next one I'm going to go back and read the True North series as I've not read that before. Allie, Thank you for your wonderful writing and I'll continue to watch for each of your new books!
4.0 out of 5 stars well done! 6 December 2015
By Carrie Marie - Published on

Ryder & Rachel were a lot of fun when they were together. I laughed a LOT at their banter back & forth - I love a good bantering couple! The story was well put together & I enjoyed it! My only complaint-ish thing would be that I didn't feel like they got to really be TOGETHER for a lot of the story. That just brought in a weird dynamic for me. Everything was very well-written, and there's no seemingly obligatory breakup or stupid fight or anything to make me cringe, so I highly appreciate THAT in a storyline!! : ) There's action & some really great chase scenes! And the epilogue was sneakily awesome! Definite keeper & re-read. : )

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Installment 11 December 2015
By ST2 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ryder is a skip tracer who stumbles across Rachel – a kidnapped federal witness – and makes it his mission to protect her. Through swamps, car chases, her own fight against him and whatever other craziness falls in their laps.

This was another great installment in this series. I really enjoyed the relationship between Ryder and Rachel. I thought they connected well and had a nice balance of fun and sexy. The only thing missing for me was more background of Ryder's time with the other guys. But, as usual, give me a hot guy and some mystery/suspense and I'm sold. Looking forward to more of the series.
