Leading a nomadic life, I’ve been on the run from my rich ex-husband for years. I’ve learned every trick in the book, staying one step ahead of him and his trackers. He’s taken everything from me, and despite everything, I’ve managed to carve out a life. But he’s getting close again. It’s time to hit the road, to start over…but it looks like the universe has other plans.


As Sargent at Arms, stalking the crazy man trying to kill my MC brothers is part of my job description. Protecting the club is what I live for. Unfortunately, today I’m the loser in our never-ending game of cat and mouse. The last thing I remember before waking up in the emergency room is staring up at the sky while bleeding out onto the cold, hard pavement. Then the pretty nurse walks in and turns my world sideways, and those soft hands know just how to handle a big, angry biker like me. With a psycho on my tail, the stakes couldn’t be higher. I know I should walk away, but self-preservation has never been much of a strong suit. As my enemy closes in, I’ve got no gun, three bullet holes, and absolutely zero patience left. The question is, who will be the one to sign my death warrant—the crazy-ass biker who’s gunning for me…or the sexy-as-sin nurse I’ve got a hard-on for?

My Review:

I’ve learned over the past year that MC novels are my favorite sinful delight! Granted there is inappropriate dialogue and at first seemingly demeaning connotations towards women, but what can I say, it’s my guilty pleasure! Marked for Death was definitely a guilty pleasure but just too short! It was a great start to the new Blind Jacks MC series, but oh how I wanted more of Ryder!

As typical with MC novels, Marked for Death focuses on a sweet, intelligent, caring woman that finds herself completely intrigued with a bad-ass biker. What made this novella stand out from the rest was the exquisite writing and incredible characterization courtesy of J.C. Valentine. More of a short story than a novella, the author packs a punch with Tiffany and Ryder, making you cringe, stress, swoon, and celebrate all in one tiny package. 

Being that it is so short, I don’t want to go into the plot much more than the blurb already does, but let me say that the story is a romantic one as one man finds himself injured, yet still needs to finish a job, while a woman finds herself completely out of her element when she wants to help him. Just wait for their flirty banter and especially their conversations in their intimate moments, because there is some serious soul-sharing that occurs that will make your heart burst. 

If you’re a fan of MC romances, or even if you haven’t yet taken that leap, this is one that should not be missed! I can’t wait to see what J.C. Valentine has for us next in this series!
