Hunter Macario wants one thing—a place to belong. When given an opportunity to solidify his position in the Devil’s Thunder MC, he takes it.
Dragon’s Clan member, Safaia King, believes she’s found the man from her people’s legend and her dreams. She has one goal, even if he’s in a rival club—to make Hunter hers and keep him safe so he can fulfill their destiny.
After Hunter makes a huge mistake, he’s sent to where Safaia lives—an alternate universe called The Den. In this new world, sex, battles, and secrets abound. Hunter must survive The Den to right some wrongs or else he could lose everything he’s ever gained, including his home and Safaia’s love.
The story’s journey - Transcending Fire
This erotic, futuristic, dystopian story based around different motorcycle gangs has had quite a journey to get to this point. Today I’m sharing the two-plus-year jaunt this book went through to find a home. Luckily, it finally has!
I started writing this story in the spring of 2015 for a special line (a series based off of fairy tales) at another publisher. While doing some research, I found some interesting tales that immediately piqued my imagination, and the contact person at the publisher chose one from a list I’d submitted. When I started writing my version, the story just flowed out of me. I absolutely loved it! Then, when I was ready to submit, I reached out to the publisher to make sure I had all my ducks in a row and was told they’d closed that line and no longer were accepting submissions for it. Needless to say, I was pretty bummed. I took some time to put the story through another draft, expanding it twenty thousand words or so. In the beginning of 2016, I submitted it elsewhere and a couple weeks later, I learned that publisher was closing. So I withdrew it from that submission process and off it went to yet another publisher. After some lackluster communication on their part, and even though they were interested, we discussed my ideas for the “series” and then came to the conclusion that the “series” wouldn’t be a fit. I say “series” because I have the outlines for book 2 and book 3 done, but not the stories yet, and that didn’t fit their guidelines. They wanted all the books up front, and I don’t know how long it’ll take to write the next ones, so to be fair, we passed on each other. That was early summer 2016.
To say I was disappointed in the whole submission process would be an understatement. I really liked this story, but I had a slight fear of putting it out there again. I put the story to the side, and after about a year and making sure it was still pretty, I sent it to Evernight, where it found its home. Even with all the trials the manuscript went through, I still love this story. It’s one of my favorites that I’ve written, and one that I didn’t get tired of during the editing process either. Yay! LOL!
