As the Enforcer of the Sons of Thunder Motorcycle Club, Mason Hackett, aka Rambo, believes in taking risks and breaking the rules to get what he wants. One night while attending a biker rally he discovers Ellen Abrams stranded on a dark, deserted highway. Ellen is a principal of a high school, a widow, and mother to JD. JD is a ten year old autistic boy. When their worlds collide, passions ignite. An ensuing relationship, fueled by lies, brings Mason to a realization it could topple his carefully constructed lifestyle with the men he calls brothers. Ellen begins to suspect Mason is an outlaw. As her suspicions mount, she finds herself ensnared in a deadly showdown. Too late, Ellen realizes their love has put her and her son's life in jeopardy.
Mason laid his head on Ellen's chest and listened to the steady rhythmn of her heart. He knew one truth and it had to be spoken, but he doubted he could do it. He swallowed and closed his eyes. The unfamiliar words escaped so quietly he hoped she heard because he might never be able to repeat them.
"I love you, Ellen.
"Don't turn me away, " Mason pleaded in a hoarse whisper.
Ellen shook her head. Her lips trembled. "I've missed you, Mason Hackett. I've missed you like crazy."
LIke a blind womn wanting to see, she ran her palm along the hard curves of Mason's shoulders and then traced the outline of the angel wings tattooed to his chest as if to confirm he was real. She read the braille of fine dark hair that ran down the smooth plane of his stomach with her fingertips until she reached his belt buckle.
The barrel of Mason's pistol dug into Mad Dog's skull like a nail being driven into the lid of a coffin. Mason's elbow slammed Mad Dog's arm, dislodging Mad Dog's weapon. The Smith and Wesson spun on the concrete floor like a life preserver out of reach. Mad Dog sighed. "I never would have taken you for a god damn Judas, Rambo. It only goes to show you can't trust the word of a liar.
