A series of weird occurrences including an attempted mugging lead Ali to believe that she’s in danger and it might have something to do with her brother’s recent death.

Get ready for one Hell of a ride as Julie Ann Walker bursts onto the scene with her debut title Hell On Wheels. Ms. Walker ensures maximum reader enjoyment with her sexy-as-sin characters, sweet romance and outstanding plot line. This Black Knights Inc. series debut is one of the hottest I’ve read all year! I was enraptured from the first page. Hell On Wheels features really cool action scenes that are vividly written and the Black Knights have one heck of a home base for their sexy bikes.
Hell On Wheels is not all action as it packs an emotional punch with Nate and Ali. They are both suffering from a huge loss but only Nate harbors guilt. Watching Nate go through all kinds of emotions during the story brings Hell On Wheels to a new level. It goes from a fun read to a read which is downright irresistible. Speaking of irresistible, the sparks flying off Nate and Ali are just that! I love how Ms. Walker gives the reader a tease of how great this couple could be at the beginning and then makes us work for the rest. Ali and Nate definitely have to work for their happiness as they have a minefield of issues standing between them. But it is so worth it because when these two connect the passion is explosive.
The hero and heroine of Hell On Wheels rock and so do the secondary characters! I completely fell in love with the ladies and gentlemen of Black Knights Inc. and CANNOT wait to read the next installment. These characters all have humor, sass, gruff and dangerous desires that make for great storytelling!
Julie Ann Walker has spun gold with her Black Knights series! The pages of Hell On Wheels shine with excellence!
