Rock's Redemption(Insurgents MC Romance Book 8)By: Chiah Wilder
Rock is the ripped, handsome Sergeant-At-Arms for the Insurgents MC. Being one of the club’s officers, women clamor to share his bed. The biker’s more than willing to oblige as long as it’s a short-time hookup; long-term relationship is not part of his vocabulary.
He’s only been in love once—a long time ago—and the end result was shattering. He learned his lesson: keep his heart encased in steel.
The tragic night that sent him to prison is over even though it still simmers inside him. But once he joined the Insurgents MC, he vowed to leave the past darkness and disappointments back in Louisiana. He’s embraced his new life of brotherhood, booze, easy women, and Harleys. It suits him just fine. Some things are best left alone, especially a pretty brunette who destroyed his heart.
Easy sex has become his mantra.
Until his past crashes into his life….
Clotille Boucher is the wealthy, spoiled girl who’d stolen Rock’s heart many years ago. From a young age, family loyalty was drilled into her, so when darkness engulfed her and Rock, fleeing seemed to be the only way out for her. Deciding to make a new life for herself, she didn’t count on having to pay for the sins of her brother.
Just when her life doesn’t seem like it could get worse, a face from her past gives her a glimmer of hope. Shamed that Rock has to see how far she’s fallen, she pretends her life is exactly what she wants, but his penetrating stare tells her he’s not buying her act.
Fearful that the secrets of the past will catch up with her and Rock, her inclination is to do what she does best—run away. Only problem is, Rock’s not letting her slip away so easily this time.
Can two damaged people learn to trust one another again? Will Rock be able to reconcile the demons that have plagued him since that tragic night? Does Clotille offer him redemption or destruction?
As Rock and Clotille maneuver the treacherous waters of their past and present, someone is lurking behind the shadows to make sure the truth never comes out.

The dark-haired boy clutched the money in his hand as he walked through the wealthy part of the city. Earlier that evening, he’d gone to the butcher shop like his mother had told him to do, to buy some ham hocks for her to make for their supper. He hated going to Le Petit Cochon without his mother. When he’d been there, all the old ladies had run their rough hands through his hair and pinched his cheeks, laughing when he’d turned red. If he were with his mother, she would have told them to stop. They would’ve laughed and called her silly, but they would’ve backed away from him.
That evening his mother had sent him to the butcher alone because she’d taken on an extra job helping Mrs. Boucher with her dinner party. She worked as one of the housekeepers for the Boucher family and sometimes they’d ask if she could help serve when they had guests over. His mother always said yes because the need for money was so great. The eleven-year-old boy wished his mother didn’t have to work so hard; she’d looked so tired when he’d gone over to get the money to pay the butcher.
