I first visited Vegas a few years back for RT (Romantic Times Convention). I was specifically going for the event, and I wasn’t really that excited about Vegas itself. Why? Well, I’m not much of a gambler, and I didn’t think it would really be my scene. (I was wrong)
I dragged my best friend/book assistant along with me, it was my first trip to the US and I had no idea what to expect. After being in Vegas for a few days, I fell in love with the place. It has so much to offer, the nightlife, the food, and the people. You never know who you’ll run into, and I even met some other Australians that I never would have otherwise crossed paths with. The week spent with the book community was amazing, and I vowed to come back.
And I did, the very next year for my 30th birthday.
Vegas is a place where anything can happen, and I always wanted to bring a surprise wedding into the fold, and unfortunately for Renny, it had to happen to him.
I hope you all love Renegade as much as I loved writing his book. Renegade, Knights of Fury #2, pubs on 11/18/19.
[Renny] leans his elbow on the bar, facing me. “Are you having a good night?”
“Are you kidding me? I won money and have eaten and drunk my way down the Strip. Not to mention that somehow you guys have all the right connections and we don’t have to even line up anywhere or pay for entry. This is like the VIP treatment.”
“With the way that you look, Izzy, trust me, I doubt you’d be lining up or paying for anything here,” he says, scanning the dance floor.
“The way I look? I’m dressed in casual clothes, Renny. I was expecting a ride home, not a night on the town, and now I look extremely out of place.”
The women around me are dolled up to the nines, with short dresses, stiletto heels and makeup and hair that looks professionally done, and I’m here in jeans, a blue top and rosy cheeks from alcohol instead of product.
“Yet you’re still the most beautiful woman in the room,” he states, offering me his hand. I know I’m not an unattractive woman, but if he honestly thinks that, he must be blind. There are more beautiful women here tonight than I’ve ever seen in one place at the same time, but I guess that’s Vegas for you.
“I love this song. Do you want to dance?”
“Depends. Are you a good dancer?” I ask, teasing him, but taking his hand at the same time. He pulls me to the busy dance floor and presses against me, not too close, which I like, just enough that it’s sexy, and I can feel how his body moves.
“I’ve heard I’m pretty good,” he whispers into my ear, sending shivers down my spine. “But why don’t you tell me?”
I can tell instantly that he’s right, he does know his way around a dance floor. He moves sensually, in rhythm to the music, but doesn’t overdo it, so it doesn’t even look like he’s trying. It just comes natural to him.
Lifting my arms above my head, I spin around and press my ass against him, gyrating my hips. I haven’t danced with a man like this in years, and it feels so freeing, so…naughty. Which is kind of sad, because lots of people do stuff like this every weekend. I’m buzzing from the alcohol and suddenly life has never been easier, or more fun.
I can see why people like to party.
Renny spins me back around and cups my cheek, smiling at me. “Looks like I’ve finally met my match.”

Book Description: New York Times bestselling author of the Knights of Fury MC series Chantal Fernando is back with trouble in the form of a renegade.
Good girl Isabella wouldn’t miss the birth of her sister’s baby for the world. So when her car breaks down and one of the bikers next door offers her a ride to Vegas, it’s too tempting to pass up. Besides, she can think of worse travel conditions than wrapping her arms around Renny, otherwise known as Renegade.
Tall, dark and handsome, the man is pure sex on a Harley.
Between wild parties and rumbling motorcycles, living next to the Knights of Fury MC has always left Isabella curious, but after a night in Vegas, she gets a firsthand taste. Drinks in the club surrounded by burly bikers soon turns into a series of daring decisions, which don’t seem so bad until she wakes up the next morning. Married. To Renny.
Could she be more of a cliché?
Nothing complicates an annulment like lingering temptation, especially when Isabella and Renny give in to their need, putting their marriage where their mouths are. But as Isabella learns what outlaw life is really like, she’ll have to decide if she’s in love with a biker—or in over her head.
