Spotlight Series of the Week: Lost Kings MC by Autumn Lake Jones

About Autumn Lake Jones
As an only child, Autumn kept herself entertained by making up all sorts of stories. For a long time, life and school dimmed her enthusiasm for creative writing. But as soon as she rediscovered her love of storytelling, she put her fingers to the keyboard and hasn’t looked back.

Her favorite books to read are mystery, thrillers, horror, romance, erotica and urban fantasy.

Her favorite thing to write is romance. All of her stories have to include a hunky hero and an optimistic ending.

When she’s not writing, Autumn spends time listening to music, going to concerts, and driving her family nuts. She enjoys reading, gardening, acting, and collecting nail polish. (Her husband says she shouldn’t be allowed to include gardening in her list of hobbies, because she makes him do all the work, but that’s not relevant.)

Autumn lives in Upstate New York with her husband and their three rescue dogs. She is actively involved with several dog rescue groups and her local RWA chapter.

Slow Burn (Lost Kings MC #1) by Autumn Jones Lake 
Forced to represent an outlaw biker, a married attorney must come to terms with her feelings for her client while avoiding the danger he brings into her sedate life. 

President of the Lost Kings MC, Rochlan "Rock" North, hasn't managed to find a woman capable of making him want to curb his wild ways—until he meets sweet, innocent, married lawyer Hope Kendall.  

Forced to represent the outlaw biker, Hope is rattled by her immediate attraction to Rock. Hope is a good girl in a good marriage. Rock thrills her, but she's not going to throw away everything she's built on a fling with her criminal client. 

Rock respects Hope enough to leave her alone, even as he realizes he's become a little obsessed with her. When their connection endangers her life, he'll have to destroy her in order to save her. 

After tragedy strikes, Rock is determined to earn Hope's forgiveness and convince her that even with their staggering differences, they're meant to be together.

Overall Rating:  4.25 Rockin’ ★★★★

Sometimes, the person viewing you from afar, loving you in silence, keeping you safe…is the one capable of loving you the most!

This is the first book in Ms. Jones’ series, the Lost Kings MC.  It is unique in the approach that is taken.  The story tells about a chance meeting between two unlikely people and the instant need that they both feel.

Busted for possession of Marijuana, MC President ‘Rock’ North finds himself in need of a lawyer.  He is in court ready to go before the judge and his lawyer is a no show.  When his eyes encounter a woman that grabs him and refuses to let go, he knows that she is the one.  She is also a lawyer and agrees to represent him.  But there is one problem, Hope Kendall is married and loves her husband.  She is everything his lifestyle is not, innocent, beautiful, smart and married.  How will he be able to deny himself? Will he be able to walk away? Stay away?

Hope cannot believe that she is representing criminal, an outlaw bike and member of the Lost Kings MC!  She is a family court lawyer, not a criminal lawyer.  Not only has she not worked in criminal court, but the attraction she feels toward the sexy man really scares her.  She is married and is not a cheater.  Will she be able to keep him at arm’s length? Or will he break through her defenses?

Rock knows that he must stay away from Hope.  She is married and he needs to protect her from those that would hurt her to get to him.  When life throws a curve and tragedy strikes, Rock takes a chance and approaches Hope.   Will Rock and Hope find each other? Or is it too late for them?  

Hero: Rochlan "Rock" North 4 stars
Heroine: Hope Kendall 4 stars
Plot:  4 stars
Steam Level: 5 stars
Cliffhanger:  No

Would I recommend this book:  Yes! Love this story of unrequited love!  It involves a hot sexy biker ‘PREZ’ and the sexy woman that he cannot stop thinking about.

Would I recommend this author:  Yes! After reading my first book by Ms. Jones, I am a fan.  She created a beautiful love story that at the same time is realist and at times brutal.  Her characters and their stories are engrossing and fascinating in the intensity they extrude.

Corrupting Cinderella (Lost Kings MC #2) by Autumn Jones Lake 
I’m not Cinderella
But he's my Prince Charming
Our love story isn’t a fairy tale...

How can a lawyer and a criminal maintain an enduring romantic relationship? 

Although Hope and Rock care deeply for one another, the truth is they come from completely different worlds. Add to that the fact that they are also both headstrong people, and they have a very rough road ahead of them.

For Rock that means introducing Hope to what it really means to be part of his brutal and shady world, where the Lost Kings Motorcycle Club is his main focus. For Hope it means accepting the things she can’t change, and understanding that Rock is a man who will do anything to keep her safe. 

As Rock continues to draw Hope deeper into his world, painful misunderstandings and opposition from the members of his club will threaten to drive them apart. 

Overall Rating:  4.25 Rockin’ ★★★★

I’m not looking for my Prince Charming (but maybe he is mine), I don’t need charming! I need someone who knows how to be honest, true and faithful.

Our love story isn’t a fairy tale...How can a lawyer and a criminal maintain an enduring romantic relationship? 

This is the second book in the Lost Kings MC trilogy by Autumn Lake Jones.  It continues the story of Hope and Rock.  It describes the struggles that they face each day as they try to combine their two very different lifestyles, an outlaw biker and a lawyer. 

How do you introduce an innocent to a biker club?  One step at time is the decision that Rock makes.  He will slowly bring her into his life while keeping her safe from blowback from his enemies.  It will not be an easy task since they are both strong, independent people that are accustomed to making their own way in life. Not only are their lives so different but their friends are too.  How do you mesh the two together?  It will not be easy for either of them and sometimes actions will push them apart. 

For Hope being a part of the shady underworld that Rock lives in goes against everything she has sworn to uphold as a lawyer.  She is part of the light and most of his dealings are dark.  Some of Rock’s brothers in the Lost Kings are concerned about Hope’s loyalty to the club. Will she be able to accept his life? Can she function as a part of club life?  Is it possible for her to convince his club that they are meant to be together and she will not betray the club?

Forces at work will try to destroy not only the club but Hope as well.  Will Rock be able to keep her safe from the violence and depravity of his world? Can they work together to make their lives fit?

Would I recommend this book:  Yes! This not your normal Cinderella meets her Prince Charming and they live happily ever after book! It is filled however with a hot sexy alpha male and a smart spunky woman that will make their own HEA together!
