Steel Journeys (November 2019)

Join Abby Steel on a series of breathtaking international adventures with Steel Journeys – an all-female motorcycle touring company where she calls all the shots. From huts to hotels, it’s never the same adventure twice.

Book 1: The Road To Patagonia

To some people, home might be wherever you lay your helmet, but for Abby Steel, home was wherever she laid her ass. Today it’s a Harley. Tomorrow it might be a BMW or a Triumph or a Honda. Home was whatever bike fit the terrain. Home was wide open spaces tucked under an expansive sky. 

Home was the road.

It took a lot of miles to work through the hurts of her past, but she’s finally built a business she can be proud of. Women from all walks of life come to join in her adventures, for all sorts of reasons. Equal parts badass and life coach, Abby genuinely cares about the women on her tours, and they respect her for it. 

The Road to Patagonia finds Abby back home in California on a break between trips, when an unexpected visitor threatens to bring all the blocks tumbling down. 

Finn Again and Trulane can be read in either order or as stand alone novels!

Trulane! (December 2017)

She wasn’t looking for a knight in shining armor.
He wasn’t looking for a beauty to rescue.
But one fateful night at a Yankees game changed all that. For both of them.

“I met Finn the night the Yankees swept The Series. He dumped a Coke down the front of my shirt and I punched him in the nose. Not the most romantic way for two strangers to strike up a conversation, but he tried to dry me off with a napkin, and when his hand touched the front of my shirt I went ballistic. It was reflex, I swear.

It’s important to note here that I wasn’t looking for a relationship. At that moment I can honestly say it was pretty close to the farthest things from my mind. Kate was right. The last time I had Cachaca I’d ended the night with a guy that turned out to be the biggest mistake of my life. Fast-forward two years, including the nine months I spent in therapy, and I was just getting my life back on track. I didn’t need a distraction, but then again, I’d forgotten what it felt like to be held by someone who wanted to match his rhythm with mine.

The idea was tempting. The guy was quicksand.”

Summary:

Finn McCarthy is half Irish, half English, and fully fantastic.

Raised in the pubs and educated at Oxford, he never did know which half to favor. His Irish half loves women and booze, while his English half is wicked smart and damned polite. And then there’s Regan, the one girl who never did succumb to his charms.

When a world at war beckons, Finn answers the call, but there are some casualties even a soldier can’t prepare for. To heal his wounds he must banish his demons, a journey that leads him to a sleepy fishing village where the mysteries of his celtic roots take hold. He begins to accept his past, only to discover that his greatest battle might take everything he’s got left.

War…Does things to a man. But Finn isn’t just any man.

From the back cover:

Still reeling from the suicide of his best friend Tess, seventeen-year old Brendan struggles to overcome addiction and identity issues. Walking the ledge outside his Manhattan apartment has become its own sort of drug, as he stands night after night with his arms outstretched, ready to fly away.

Sarah can see him from her window, and begins journaling about a boy on a ledge. Paige and Nate, a young couple in another building, can see both teens from their fire escape.

None of them know the others are watching, but a strong desire for freedom resides in each of them, and as their lives begin to intertwine, that desire will be tested.

Three buildings. One city block. Three stories. One common thread.
