Dr. Lila Emerson is finally free of the shadow of her politically connected family, with her new job in a small town Emergency Room. But her new peace is shattered when she encounters the dangerous, but compelling Striker. He’s everything she should stay away from, but all she craves. And since he keeps turning up in her ER, he’s hard to avoid.
As Vice President of No Prisoners outlaw motorcycle club, Striker is no stranger to violence. But when it touches the pretty doctor he wants in his bed, he’ll do anything to keep her safe. When Striker and Lila are thrust together, sparks fly and passions ignite. Before long they find themselves entangled in a relationship neither saw coming.
The MC can and will eliminate any threat against Lila, but what if they—and the man she’s falling for—are the reason she’s in danger?

The doors to Desert Community Hospital slid open with a whoosh. It was a sound Dr. Lila Emerson heard countless times each shift, so she didn’t bother to look up, focusing instead on completing a written proposal for the concussion and sports safety program she hoped to institute at the local high school. Another forty-five minutes and she would have it completed, and be on her way home to the bottle of Cabernet and warm bath that promised to soothe her tired body after a hectic week. She couldn’t wait.
“Stitch.” Jester’s booming voice bellowed through the lobby. “We need you, girl! Gumby’s face is all busted up.”
Lila groaned. Again? Perhaps the man needed a new nickname. Gumby didn’t seem fitting, considering the number of times his body cracked.
Members of the No Prisoners motorcycle club had burst into the lobby of the emergency room. She could always tell the moment they came through the doors, even without the inevitable we’re here announcement made by Jester. There was a change in the energy of the room: a charge of fear and distrust from some, a nervous respect from others, and a buzz of sexual energy from all the testosterone they seemed to emit. There was a strong possibility she was the only one who noticed that last point.
Jester led the pack of two leather-clad, boot-wearing men as they tromped through the waiting room, and up to the admissions desk. Silence descended as the patients awaiting treatment gaped at the intimidating duo. Jester was a mountain of a man, topping out at no less than six foot five inches, and probably weighed close to three hundred pounds of solid muscle. He had the body type of a serious weight lifter, and could have been one, for all she knew about him. Both arms boasted full sleeves of tattoos, and additional ink peeked out from the collar of his T-shirt. Jester’s dark brown hair was long, past his shoulders, and thick, though usually contained in a ponytail at the base of his neck. He was a formidable figure, and not someone she’d want to meet in a back alley at night, despite his apparent jovial demeanor.
He reached the admissions desk, and braced his meaty hands on the counter. The action placed him directly above poor Anna, the middle aged receptionist who worked the night shift. She had to tilt her head way back to meet Jester’s fierce gaze.
About the Author:
Lilly Atlas is a contemporary romance author. She’s a proud Navy wife and mother of two spunky girls. Every time Lilly downloads a new ebook she expects her Kindle App to tell her it’s exhausted and overworked, and to please give it some rest. Thankfully that hasn’t happened yet so she can often be found absorbed in a good book.
How many books do you currently have published?
As of now, Striker is the first book I’ve published. Jester, the second book in the No Prisoners MC series, is available for pre-order, and goes live on November first!
Are you currently working on a book? Will this be your next release?
Right now, I’m working on Acer’s story. His will be the third book in the No Prisoners series. There isn’t a release date yet, but I anticipate early 2017.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
I’m a daydreamer, plotter, fantasizer, whatever you’d like to call it. My mind is constantly dreaming up stories and characters. What I enjoy most about writing, is bringing those stories to life and sharing them with others.
Do you ever get writer’s block? If so, how do you deal with it?
I haven’t experienced true writer’s block as of yet, but there are times when I get stuck writing a scene. The words don’t flow the way I want, or I’m just not satisfied with the scene. What I’ve found works best, is if I walk away from the computer for a while. My mind never completely lets the scene go, and after some time spent thinking it through—without feeling the pressure of the computer staring at me—I’m able to push past it.
Have you ever had one of your characters to take a twist you weren’t expecting and surprise you?
I have! Problem is, if I tell you now, I’ll spoil a future story.
Do you have any extras you’d like to share, like a teaser about an upcoming new release, a summary of a deleted scene, or a teaser about a surprising plot twist or character?
Look for the audio version of Striker in the next few weeks. It’s narrated by Noah Michael Levine, who won the 2016 Audie Award for Best Erotica Audiobook. He did an amazing job, and I can’t wait until everyone can listen to the book!
Now it’s time to get to know you! What are some of your favorite books to read?
The Fatal series by Marie Force is my hands down favorite series. It has everything I love: complex characters, steamy love scenes, suspense, and intrigue.
What about television shows? Movies?
I’m a huge Game of Thrones nerd. A few other shows that top my list are Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and Shameless.
