Summary: Being kidnapped by bikers is a harrowing experience, but for some reason, Laurie doesn’t feel as terrified as she should. The leader’s steely eyes soften when he looks at her, and the others in his gang clearly know she’s hands off. But does that include Steele's hands? Her brain resists him, but her body insists she wants those big hands all over her.
Steele doesn’t know how he wound up in this mess–with a kidnapped woman on his hands and the police hot on their trail. Now he and Laurie are in hiding at an isolated cabin, and Steele has to figure out how to extricate himself...and steer clear of his accidental captive whose tight, slinky clubbing attire is making him think all kinds of dangerous thoughts…

Novella 4 in the Riding Steele serial is Wanted and in this one we get to know each member of Steele’s crew a little more.
Laurie, Steele and his crew are on the run. Laurie is apparently being charged for stealing that darned diamond necklace that was given as a gift by Donovan the jerk. Laurie and Steele hit the road as the others pack up the house before the cops arrive.
Laurie just couldn’t help herself, she had an urge and made Steele pull over. After a quick stop they ride to the rendezvous point. This is another location with a lake, but this time they are camping. While waiting for the others to arrive, Steele tries to get Laurie’s clothes off, but she was too nervous about the possibility of the others appearing. She’s not comfortable with the whole idea yet or with the prospect of being shared with the crew.
Steele has claimed Laurie as his woman, but Laurie is concerned about what will happen if she gets cleared of the charges. Could she really leave her secure, simple, normal life? Become a nomad, moving from place to place as the wind guides you? Laurie doesn’t believe she would be able to and will set Steele straight later…..
The rest of the crew arrives and brings lunch, as they are sitting around a campfire, Laurie starts asking questions. How did they all meet and become a part of Steele’s crew? How did they get their ride names?
Steele’s crew has been on the road for a year now and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Will Laurie stay with them? Will she get cleared of the theft charges? Can Laurie open herself to the idea of sharing with the crew? When will she realise she has strong feelings and loyalties towards Steele? Will Laurie ever get to go home?
Follow the journey on the back of a bike with Laurie and Steele, plus his crew. Being hunted by the police, hiding out of sight and camping beside beautiful, secluded lakes. This is another amazing instalment by Opal Carew, fantastically written and full to the brim with fun, action and drama and of course the steamy hot scenes. Next up is Riding Steele #5: Crossroads.
About the Author
Hi. I’m Opal Carew and I write erotic romance for St. Martin’s Press. I’ve been writing since 1993, though originally I wrote futuristic, urban fantasy, science fiction, paranormal and contemporary romance. These stories are set in the present, future, or alternate realities and most of my stories are steamy. I am now republishing these under the name Amber Carew.
As Opal Carew, I write erotic romances which always have a romance and a happy ending.
So why do I like writing erotic romance? I like being able to push beyond traditional boundaries. I like dealing with a woman who is growing and evolving – questioning her sexual boundaries and pushing past them. I have been writing stories that involve multiple characters and it’s fascinating to work with the interactions between them. What fun to write a heroine choosing between two equally appealing heroes? My current project involves a group of several people who interact sexually and I find the scenario an enjoyable challenge.
I try to keep my characters real. I like to have a heroine with whom the reader can empathize. These aren’t women who just jump into bed with anyone. They find themselves in an unusual situation – something exciting and erotic – but a situation where they have to push themselves beyond their comfort level. As a result, they grow as a person. So often fear holds us back – of what others will think of us, of what we will think about ourselves – and we don’t follow our hearts. These women push past that fear.
