Book Description:

Biker Dave "Dodge" Roth
has never cared about his bad luck with women. He has other things to worry
about—paying off debt his ex accumulated and most importantly, raising his
three-year-old son, Cullen. When a new neighbor moves in, his boy makes it
impossible to ignore her. Hard to miss, she's beautiful, smart, sexy, perfect.

After her last failed
relationship, kindergarten teacher Alexa "Lex" Millen has decided to
do without men. She's bought her first home in a small town in California and
remodeled it to her liking. Naturally, she's managed to move across the street
from the world's biggest jerk. His son's adorable, but he won't mind his own
business. If only her engines didn't rev every time he came around.

“Fine. I’ll go
with you.”
Going was her
best option. When he took her home, she’d tell him why she’d avoided him and
why the two of them getting together was a bad idea. Of course, that’d only
work if he didn’t kiss her. So her plan—she had to keep him away.
He hesitated for
a moment then released her.
“I have to say
She spun and
made it half way around when his fingers gripped her wrist. He tugged, turning
her to him again.
“You hear what I
said before, Lex, or are you deaf?”
She clenched her
jaw and fisted her free hand. Then the anger burning inside her spilled. “For
an entire month, I sat in my beautiful house alone. That is, in between the
times I got house visits from you being a jerk. I’m very angry with you for
ruining the first fun night I’ve had since moving here.”
Her face flushed
with each word. That heat crept down her neck and chest. “I’ve agreed to leave
with you, but I’m not happy about it. I’m not anyone you can boss or control. I
were you, I’d tread very carefully because quite frankly, I’ve had it with your
insults, your cursing, your caveman tactics. Bottom line…”
She shoved a
pointed finger in his face. “I’ve had it with you.”
A muscle in his
jaw twitched. He grabbed her wrist, pulled her hand away from his face, and
squeezed. “I could control you, babe, you’d be sitting on my face.”

the Author:

J.L. Sheppard was born and raised
in South Florida where she still lives with her husband and sons.

As a child, her greatest
aspiration was to become a writer. She read often, kept a journal, and wrote
countless poems. She attended Florida International University and graduated in
2008 with a Bachelors in Communications. During her senior year, she interned
at NBC Miami, WTVJ. Following the internship, she was hired and worked in the
News Department for three years.

It wasn’t until 2011 that she set
her heart and mind into writing her first completed novel, Demon King’s Desire,
which was first published in January 2013.


Interview with J.L. Sheppard
Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story? At times, they definitely hijack the story and me. ;)
Convince us why you feel your book is a must read. Riding Hard is a biker/MC, erotic romance, but like my other MC romances part of this series, they are not your typical biker romances. These bikers are, for the most part, law-abiding citizens. Riding Hard also isn’t just about steamy scenes. There’s a story, a beautiful one about love, not just between a couple but the unconditional kind between a parent and child. 
Have you written any other books that are not published? Yes. The fifth in the Hell Ryders MC Series is written. I have to read it again and make some changes before I send it off to my editor though. I also have the third of the Fated Immortals Series written and the fourth of the Elemental Sisters Series, Blooded Desire, is written and edited. Before I publish that one, I’m re-releasing the third in the series, Heavenly Desire since it’s out of contract at the moment. 
Pen or type writer or computer? Computer.

Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans? To my readers and fans, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Since I was a kid, I’ve wanted to write. I started writing my first novel without thought about who would read it. I knew that not everyone would like it. I knew that getting bad reviews would not be fun, but learning that some readers do enjoy the stories I’ve spent countless hours dreaming up, writing, editing, and reading is a dream come true, and it’s what keeps me typing away.
