The New York Times bestselling author of the “swoonworthy and addicting” (Kim Karr, New York Times bestselling author) Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series is back with more bad boy bikers in this first novel in the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club series.

Erin Dawson had the perfect life growing up in a perfect home with a perfect family. Her parents gave her and her sister everything a child could want. But after learning that the man she’s called “dad” her whole life isn’t actually her biological father, Erin is determined to find the man who is.

Armed with her original birth certificate, she finds her father, but begins questioning if her mom had been right all along to keep this information buried. It turns out he is the president of a motorcycle club, which could not be further from the life Erin leads. But, she’s determined to get to know the man who she gets her striking blue eyes from. Despite getting what she wants and finding her biological father, it’s the slightly older, much rougher but incredibly sexy biker Ace that catches Erin’s eye.

As the new “princess” of the Cursed Ravens, Erin is learning a whole new world, but her father has made it clear she is off limits. Will Ace follow his President’s orders or will he put his heart ahead of his duty? A sizzling tale of family and passion, Ace of Hearts features Fernando’s signature “snark and sass” (Booklist) and is perfect for fans of Kristin Ashley.

My first introduction to Chantal Fernando's writing was the Wind Dragons MC series, and I have continued to enjoy each book that she has published. This new biker series has been entertaining too, and I've loved getting to know new characters, as well as getting a small glimpse of a character from the first series!

Right from the opening chapter where Erin walks into the Cursed Ravens MC I knew she was going to be a character I was going to enjoy reading about. She was willing to go after what she wanted and would stand up for herself when needed. She formed long term friendships quickly and fell into the MC world easily.

Ace was the typical biker that I expected him to be. He was tough and intimidating, and he knew what he wanted as soon as he laid eyes on Erin. It was amusing seeing him struggle with his connection with Erin as she was supposed to be left alone, but he realised he couldn't fight his heart!

I really enjoyed being in this world. It was good to see that Erin continued to have a good relationship with her family and kept her previous friendships while still making new friends. I like that the Cursed Ravens MC aren't as bad as some out there, but I'm still not 100% sold on them being so good. Chantal Fernando always creates characters that I want to know more about. The world feels realistic and her writing is so fluent and easy to get lost in. I saw a glimpse of a character that was introduced in the Wind Dragons MC series, and I'm hoping we get to know more about her soon!

These two were so good together, the connection was definitely there from the very beginning!

He gently pushes me back into my room and closes the door behind us, this time pressing the lock.
“Is that what this is? Connection?” he asks me, sounding doubtful.
Before I can reply though, he lowers his head, cupping my cheeks in his warm, rough palms, and kisses me. Gentle at first, soft and sweet. Unsure. All that soon changes as we melt into the kiss, his lips becoming demanding, greedy. His tongue slips inside my mouth, and his hands move from my face to my waist, pulling me closer. I moan as he dips me back, my back arching, like in a romantic movie. His thumbs caress my hips, and I’m lost in the sensations.
