As a teen, Dawn ran from a life on the streets straight into the arms of Jimmy “Mad Dog” Sanchez, a biker who promised to be her knight in shining armor. But his love was just another cage. Years later, Dawn’s former life still has its hooks in her and she’ll do whatever it takes to break free. When Cade “Raider” Tyson, a member of a rival club, makes her an offer, Dawn finds herself in a different, hotter kind of trouble with one irresistible Sinner…

Cade is an outlaw biker with allegiance to one thing and one thing only: The Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club. But when it comes to the stunningly sexy, fiercely independent Dawn Delgado, Cade finds himself…hungrier for more. Trouble is on Dawn’s heels and he wants to be the answer to her prayers, whether she wants him to be or not. What can’t be denied is the red-hot attraction between them. However, as they fall deeper, the danger rises and Cade may have to sacrifice it all…

See where it all began with book 1 of the Sinner’s Tribe series, Rough Justice.

“I can’t behave around you.” His voice dropped, husky and low. “Last time we were together—” 

“Was the last time we will be together.” Disconcerted by the intensity of her feelings, she pulled away. “I had a good time with you, but I’m not interested in getting involved. I have my hands full with work, and the girls, and the custody fight.” She was good at building walls to protect herself. Even with him, she’d given her body but kept a lock on her heart.
At least, she thought she had, but when he leaned down and brushed his lips over hers, her betraying heart stuttered in her chest.

“You’re interested in getting involved with me,” he whispered. “Otherwise you wouldn’t have invited me to sleep in your bed. You think I’m hot.”

Dawn lifted an eyebrow. “Is this part of the seduction technique you use to lure sweet, sexy young things into your bed?”

He nuzzled her neck, feathering kisses along her jaw as one hand curved over her ass. She should push him away. Run. Hide. Pretend she didn’t enjoy having a badass biker whisper naughty words in her ear in the middle of the playground as he set her blood on fire. But she couldn’t move. Couldn’t speak. Instead, she closed her eyes and went along for the ride, tilting her head to the side to give him better access.

“That’s my girl,” he murmured against her ear. “She’s sweet. She’s sexy. And she wants me in her bed, my hands on her body, my mouth between her—”


Somewhere in the distance, someone was calling her name. This wasn’t a dream; it was real. And she’d almost made the same mistake with him again. She jerked back, her cheeks flushing at her uncharacteristic loss of control.

“I can’t believe you.” She shook off her lust-induced haze and pulled away. “We’re in the playground.”

A sly smile tugged at his lips. “Swings. Chains. Gives me so many ideas.”

“You’re filthy.” And she loved it. But she would never let him know.

“So are you, if I recall correctly.” He licked his lips and Dawn’s throat tightened. God, he looked like he wanted to do her right here. And if not for her girls, and the playground full of people, and the fact it was illegal, and it was the middle of the day, she might have agreed.

This series.

My goodness, how I am loving it!

When I read ROUGH JUSTICE, I became a Sarah Castille fan and I picked up some of her other books. And while I enjoyed them, I just really, really like what she's doing with this Sinners tribe. I am thoroughly enjoying Sarah write these tough-assed bikers, and watching them fall in love. This was only book two, but I foresee each and every one being equally good.

Cade is a biker through and through. The Sinner's Tribe is the first sense of normalcy, of family, that he's had since leaving the military, and he'd joined the military for that sense of family, even. It's not something he had growing up. Now he lives by the Sinner's creed; lives, breathes, eats it.

A year ago, he broke his cardinal rule of only sleeping with a woman once, by sleeping with Dawn twice. She then ran from him, not looking back. Cade has tried to extinguish his want of Dawn over the year, but her memory still plays on his mind. While he doesn't want an old lady, he certainly wants Dawn.

Dawn lived the biker lifestyle -- it's that lifestyle that left her abused and scarred. When she was able to pack up her twin daughters and flee, she went into a different biker's territory. Jimmy couldn't step into Conundrum without some kind of retaliation against him, being from a different club. Jimmy, though, is an ass of epic proportions and not only had he claimed Dawn as his old lady, he married her in a civil ceremony -- meaning that to leave him, she had to divorce him... and with divorce came a nasty custody battle. Now, Dawn only sees her girls briefly and for even that time, Jimmy and his sister has set an asinine set of rules.

I absolutely loved how tough Dawn was. I loved that she was strong and fierce, and she would do anything for her daughters. She knew that what she wanted was a loving husband who loved her girls, who was a good father -- when she left Jimmy, she had dreams of the whole white-picket-fence thing.

She never wanted to return to the biker lifestyle, and if that thought wasn't enough, she had to keep reminding herself that there was no way Cade could offer her what she needed.

Cade was surprising though... If there was one tough man who could make a go of it as a daddy, that man was it. Watching him accept her girls and talk with them, teach them, be there for them... from beginning of BEYOND THE CUT to end... I absolutely fell further in love with him through the pages.

I loved that he tried convincing himself that he just wanted the one who got away, that he was adamant about not wanting an old lady... but he just couldn't let Dawn go. Their relationship was fun to watch unfold.

Now, pupils, if you would refer to my review of ROUGH JUSTICE and the statement about how I loved the end?

Yeah... Loved the end in this one too. Cade and Dawn are so good for one another and that Cade... mmm, that Cade...

and coming October 6, 2015...
Sinner’s Steel
Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club #3

Tall, dark, and dangerously handsome, Zane “Tracker” Colter is the strong, silent type of tattooed muscle biker who drives women wild. But as a master of strategy for the outlaw MC club, Sinner’s Tribe, he doesn’t have time to play around with groupies and biker chicks-especially when he can’t stop thinking about Evie, the girl who got away…

Evie’s been in love with Zane ever since they were children-until he broke her heart and disappeared. Now he’s back in her life, bigger and badder than ever. Zane is stunned by how beautiful and confident Evie’s become, using her artistic talent to customize motorcycles. He wants her so bad, he’d ride through fire to win her back. There’s one problem: Evie is dating his deadliest rival-the leader of the Black Jacks-and if Evie and Zane hook up, there’ll be hell to pay…
