The only constant is change.
The Night Horde SoCal is the new charter of the Night Horde MC, one that rose up from the ashes of a violent war with a drug cartel. The Horde’s outlaw days ended with that war.
Muse, like many of his SoCal brothers, was a member of an MC that was destroyed in that fight. A former Nomad enforcer, he’s struggled to be settled in a straight life. But Southern California is his home, his family is now Horde, and he has responsibilities. So he keeps his head down and does his best to take care of his family and responsibilities.
Sidonie has recently moved to Madrone, the town where the Night Horde SoCal has set up its base, to begin her job as a social worker for San Bernardino County. It’s work she feels a sense of mission to do.
Muse and Sid meet under stressful circumstances, on opposite sides of a dilemma. When Muse tries to bring her to his side, a fire catches between them.
As their feelings for each other deepen, the work of the SoCal charter becomes dangerous again. But the club isn’t the only potential danger for Sid. Her own work carries risk, too.
Muse needs to keep her safe. Sid needs to stand on her own. They won’t have a future together until they find the place where those needs merge and make them stronger.
Strength & Courage is the first book in the Night Horde SoCal series. Though this series, and thus its backstory, spins off from the Signal Bend Series, and though key characters from that series appear here, this focus is on the SoCal charter. If you haven’t been to Signal Bend yet, you won’t be lost in Madrone.
Note: explicit sex & violence.
Another guilty pleasure read and one that had me wrapped up in it from beginning to end. Strength & Courage is the first book in the Night Horde SoCal, a spin-off series from Signal Bend. This is such a hard book to review without giving away the story, so I’m going to keep it brief and just start off by sharing that I was excited to lose myself in another series of Ms. Fanetti’s.
The main characters, Muse and Sid have issues to work through and they make for an interesting back story. Having read the Signal Bend series, hearing Bart, Nolan and Show’s names come up added a layer of familiarity to the story that you usually don’t get with the first book in a series. This is an MC where Hollywood and Bikers provide a unique relationship, both business and personal.
Knowing that Deme’s book will be next is fitting. Reading the teaser for this book on the Freak Circle’s blog sold me. I pre-ordered Shadow and Soul ( the Night Horde SoCal #2) and waited patiently…
