Series: Brazen Bulls MC, #2
Tulsa, Oklahoma 1996
Maxwell “Gunner” Wesson is the loose cannon of the Brazen Bulls MC. A loss taken when he was a boy left a hole inside him, full of chaos and noise, and only pain and destruction can quiet the tempest. Full of courage and fiercely loyal, he has the Bulls at his back, even when his outbursts threaten to damage the club.
But the club president’s patience is wearing thin. Gun’s lack of control has put the Bulls on the front lines of a brewing war, right in the heart of Tulsa.
Leah Campbell is a small-town girl, living the life her mother walked away from. She takes care of her father, the town minister, and keeps his secrets, ensuring that he keeps his place as the moral and spiritual center of their community. But Leah has secrets of her own, and she’s faltering under the weight of all the things she cannot say, and all the things she must be and do to keep the truth at bay. She’s filled the hole her mother made, but it’s left her empty.
When two such damaged souls, full of secrets and empty of hope, come together, they will either save each other or tear everything apart.
Note: explicit sex and violence.

About Susan Fanetti
I was born and raised in the Midwest–Missouri, to be precise. A few years ago, I was transplanted into the dusty soil of Northern California and have apparently taken root there. An inveterate geek and gamer, I am a fan of many things considered pop culture and maybe even lowbrow. I’m a particular fan of Joss Whedon. Seriously. If he wrote it, I’m in.
As a reader, my favorite genres are science fiction and fantasy, but as a writer, I’ve found my home in romance–or perhaps it’s better to say simply “love stories.” I have a yen to try other genres, too, at some point, but for now my muse wants to tell stories about lovers and families.
I write for the joy of it, and I write stories that I want to read. If others like them, too, that’s just the cherry on top. I’m not interested in rules and formulae. I follow my muse and my characters and let them take me where they want to go, wherever that might be. I like big emotions, dark and light.
I like complicated characters with flaws and weaknesses as well as strengths, and I like each character’s strengths and weaknesses to be different from those of other characters. I’m much more concerned that my characters be interesting and diverse than that they be widely considered to be likable. I try to create people, not types.
Likewise, I want my stories each to be distinct from the others. Once I’ve told a story, I don’t want to tell it again. So even within a series, one of my books might be very different from the next. Some might be very dark, others equally mild.
That isn’t to say there aren’t trends and recurrences in my work. I’m drawn to certain themes and settings, and my muse has her favorite toys and tools. But I guard against those tendencies becoming a formula.
Of my current work, The Signal Bend Series (MC romance) is complete, with seven books and a novella released: Move the Sun, Behold the Stars, Into the Storm, Alone on Earth, In Dark Woods (the novella), All the Sky, Show the Fire, and Leave a Trail.
The Night Horde SoCal series, a series spinning off from the Signal Bend Series, is now complete, with eight volumes: Strength & Courage, Shadow & Soul, Today & Tomorrow (a Side Trip), Fire & Dark, Dream & Dare (another Side Trip), Knife & Flesh, Rest & Trust, and Calm & Storm.
Nolan: Return to Signal Bend is a semi-standalone novel that follows the Signal Bend and Night Horde SoCal series and completes the Night Horde MC stories. I say “semi-standalone” because it isn’t part of any series,but its backstory is included in both Night Horde series.
The Pagano Family series (family saga) is complete, with six volumes: Footsteps, Touch, Rooted, Deep, Prayer, and Miracle.
A Viking historical romance series, The Northwomen Sagas, is in progress, with three volumes now available: God’s Eye, Heart’s Ease, and Soul’s Fire.
A new MC romance series is in progress. Crash, the first book of The Brazen Bulls MC, is now available.
