Book Overview

He's a Harley-riding ex-thief...she's a gun-toting ex-socialite. Together they'll take the ride of a lifetime in this erotic romance from "an undoubted master."* Mac Canfield was the last man Lily West expected to see again, never mind aim her gun at. But there he was, the bad boy who'd broken her heart years ago-still a thief, hijacking a priceless artifact-and it was all she could do to push aside the memories of how it felt to have his...

Wild Riders Is A Wild Ride

This is the first book in the "Wild Riders" series and is a story of reacquainted lovers, which is one of my favorite themes. Lily West, a smart, savvy Dallas policewoman turned Chicago private eye is on her latest assignment to test security measures at a museum where a priceless exhibit is on display. Lily is outside watching the museum and planning to break in to demonstrate how lax the building's security is. As she watches the building in the dark Lily becomes lost in a fantasy concerning her first lover, Mac Canfield who she hasn't seen in 10 years. When Lily hears the rumble of a motorcycle, which quiets in an alley outside an entrance to the museum she is jolted from her fantasy and on alert. A man, who looks achingly familiar, disembarks from the bike, breaks open the museum door, enters and then exits holding something obviously valuable. Lily approaches the man with her gun drawn, instructing him to raise his hands and turn around. The man who turns to face her is none other than her previous lover Mac. To say Lily is stunned would be an understatement, and Mac is equally so at seeing her interceding during his museum heist. Once regaining their wits Lily lunges for the artifact that Mac is holding, which goes flying and breaks to reveal a vial that she later learns contains a virus that could be lethal to millions of people. Then bullets start flying at them from an unseen assailant. With their lives in the balance Lily and Mac escape on his motorcycle. This sets the stage for an across state "wild ride", and when Mac refuses to let Lily go she believes she has been kidnapped by a criminal. Mac, however is not a criminal, he is an agent working with a super secret government agency called, "Wild Riders", founded by the enigmatic General Grange Lee. I won't go into any more details about the "Wild Riders"; you'll have to read the book to find out more. However, I will say that all the male agents are totally hot and very "Alpha". After sexually initiating Lily 10 years earlier Mac left her because of differences in social class. Essentially, he felt he would hold her back if he stayed and their relationship intensified. Despite Mac breaking her heart Lily has never forgotten him, she has had other lovers over the years but longed for his touch. Jaci Burton's "Wild Riders", series is published under the `Heat' division of Berkley and these books are sexually explicit. The love scenes between this couple are erotic and intense. Lily is comfortable with her sexuality and experienced. Mac is forced to come to terms with his feelings for the beautiful woman he had left behind so long ago. The sexual tension sizzles between them until 10 years of pent up longing boils to the surface. Jaci Burton writes amazing love scenes in her erotic romance novels, while certainly hot, there is a always tenderness, that inevitably makes me *sigh*. As a reader, I always fall for the hero, she draws me in and keeps me entranced. The underlying action

tangy action thriller

Wild and Sizzling read!

Reading Jaci Burton's RIDING WILD was awesome. A quick summary of the book first, Lily West is a private investigator, former police who is doing work to evaluate security at a museum. Mac is her first love that left her ten years ago without any reason or meaning. Mac's a bad boy! He's had a difficult upbringing that Lily believes nothing has changed in 10 years. After she finds him breaking into a museum, she gets caught in the middle and Mac is forced to take her along with him. Without having to give more details of the story, GO READ IT! The sexual tension between Mac and Lily steams off the pages from the very beginning when Lily recalls their relationship in the prior years. As Mac takes Lily on a wild ride (gosh, I so love heroes on motorcycles. Jaci does this fab!) trying to lose those who are following them and getting the stolen virus into safe hands. Mac is keeping details from Lily to protect himself and Lily will not give up and so hard tries not to fall for Mac again. I was captivated to the pages of this book! As a reader, I was feeling I was in Lily's place so many times. This author Jaci Burton has a excellent writing voice that gives you so much visual and sensual connection that you will feel you are right there along with them. Gosh, I don't know how to say this any other way, but I was panting along with Lily. The suspense was so intense, so real, as their love was for each other, that you'll be visualizing it as a movie you are watching. If you love sizzling romance suspense book this is the one to read. Days and months after I finished the book, scenes were still with me. I'm picturing scenes and feeling them just as intense when I was reading it. This is totally a keeper, and can't wait for Jesse's story in RIDING TEMPTATION!

Riding Wild

Private investigator Lily West is on assignment. Her client wants her to check out the night security detail at a Chicago museum. While watching the security guards talk in the lobby and not do their job, Lily thinks back ten years, and the object of her daydream? Mac Canfield. Hearing a Harley motorcycle on the street makes her think back to when they were young and involved. No other man has ever made her feel as he used to. Coming out of her revelry, Lily is dismayed to see a motorcycle pull up to the back of the museum and a man somehow jimmy the lock and get inside. Before she is able to call for help and alert the museum's lax security guards, the man is back outside with a priceless artifact. And he looks just like Mac Canfield! Mac Canfield owes Grange Lee and the Wild Riders everything. Ten years ago, he was on a path of self destruction where the only bright light in his life was Lily West. On a dangerous assignment in Chicago, Mac needs to steal a top-secret vial and turn it over to the government. The coast is clear when he breaks into the museum; however, once outside his past is staring him in the face and she is holding him at gunpoint. Mac does the only thing that will keep them both safe. He grabs Lily and drives hell bent for leather away from the museum. Now all he has to do is convince Lily that he isn't the enemy without blowing his cover. If I didn't love a Harley man before, I most certainly do now. Mac Canfield is my ideal for a tough, Harley riding alpha male. From the top of his head to the bottom of his leather chaps, Mac is sin incarnate. And I adored every molecule of him. His undercover work aside, I felt he was loyal and downright sexy. He had never gotten over Lily and I could tell with every emotion he used with her that he still cared. Mac had never forgotten Lily and Lily for sure had never forgotten Mac. No other man ever measured up to him in her eyes. Every time Mac had to thwart Lily's questions concerning his profession broke my heart because I know she wanted answers but I also knew that Mac couldn't tell her for very good reasons. Riding Wild is definitely one wild ride! From cover to cover I was enthralled with the plot, the emotions, and the sensuality. Jaci Burton's ability to write dominant bad boys makes me sweat. I have one wish - I am craving in the worst way for the rest of the Wild Riders to have their own stories. Might I volunteer the heroine Talia? Riding Wild releases on February 5 - run, don't walk, and purchase this phenomenal story. Talia Reviewed for Joyfully Reviewed

The last man Lily West ever expected to see again was Mac Canfield - especially coming out of the very museum she's been hired to test the security for, and especially not holding a priceless artifact he obviously just lifted from said museum! She could certainly have never anticipated what happens next - Mac whisking her off on his Harley and kidnapping her to keep her quiet! But all is not as it seems. Is Mac really a thief, or something much bigger going on here? To say that Jaci Burton's upcoming Berkley release, Riding Wild is hot would be a complete understatement. Scalding, scorching, searing, blazing - even those words do not truly do it justice. Even without the Harley and the leathers, Mac would be one of the sexiest Alphas around, but in them? Whew, he is simply devastating. It is no wonder that Lily has never forgotten this man, or that he gets to her so easily when he stumbles back into her life. And Lily. Lily is a complete surprise to Mac as well. Gone is the young and naïve girl he first knew, and in her place is a woman more than capable of holding her own in any situation, whether in bed or in a gunfight. No real surprise seeing that this Alpha's desire for the lovely Lily is ramped up quite a bit upon seeing the way she's grown up. Throughout the story, we find our couple thrown into one dangerous situation after another, depending on each other for survival, and finally learning to trust each other without reservation, despite the necessary secrets they keep from each other. Riding Wild is a must-read for anyone who loves sexy romances filled with plenty of action and suspense.
