Rome McGuire knew he was in trouble the first time he saw her.
She was sweet and pretty and just about perfect in every way. She was also too young and innocent for the Reapers Motorcycle Club. He did the right thing, and walked away.
The second time, he couldn’t resist tasting her.
Gorgeous and smart, fun and full of wonder, she jumped on his bike and would’ve followed him anywhere. Still, she deserved a shot at happiness somewhere bigger and better than a town like Hallies Falls. Walking away wasn’t so easy that time, but her family needed her and he had a job to do.
When she came around a third time, he’d had enough. Randi Whittaker had been given two chances to escape, and now it was time for Rome to take his.
This time, the only way Randi would be leaving Hallies Falls was on the back of Rome’s bike.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
This story is messy and sexy and I just really, really liked it. The push and pull is juicy, the story is steamy and rife with familial drama, and our hero is this strong, determined kind of biker that I just adored. Whether you’re a devout Reaper fan or not, this novella can be read as a complete standalone. Rome’s Chance is a yummy quick read that I devoured in one sitting and one that I really enjoyed.
4 “Yes. This.” Stars!
I reallllllllly liked this novella. Calling Rome’s Chance a second chance romance doesn’t feel right to me. This is more a story about two people finally getting it right when the time is just right. While Rome and Randi may have had some close calls over the years, things finally come together in this novella and it was sexy and romantic and full of side drama. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This was a really fun read, what with the first date and the bar brawl and the dance floor steam. The build up of this sensual story is just delicious. But it’s also a story full of tragedy and heartache that really stings. It’s a novella packed with steamy scenes and dramatic twists and it held me tightly in its snare the whole way through.
Rome is EVERYTHING. He’s a biker but he’s also an EMT! So yum. But there’s not a lot of biker drama in this story. Randi deals with more chaos in her personal life than Rome does, while Rome focuses primarily on this woman, on trying to get her to take a chance on them while she’s so distracted by all the other stuff happening around her. This story is messy and sexy and I just really, really liked it. The push and pull is juicy, the story is steamy and rife with familial drama, and our hero is this strong, determined kind of biker that I just adored.

This was pure chemistry, and we’d had it from the very first. Our eyes had met across that keg and it was all over… Now Rome’s eyes found mine again, and that same spark I was feeling flared in their depths.
“F*ck, you’re beautiful,” he said, his face softening. I blinked, every bit as mesmerized as I’d felt at the grocery store. He leaned forward, still sitting on the bike, and caught my hand, pulling me toward him. “I’m gonna kiss you.”
“Yes, please,” I whispered, brain fully disengaged. His hand came up and caught the back of my head, then our lips met and I died a little.
He’d kissed me twice before, years ago. Those kisses had been soft. Devastating and intense, but very gentle. Sweet.
This was totally different. This came hard and fast, his mouth overwhelming mine with a powerful, masculine hunger I hadn’t expected. His tongue thrust against the seam of my lips, and when I didn’t immediately open, his teeth followed, nipping just enough to startle me. I gasped, and then he was inside.
There was nothing sweet about him right now.
Rome’s hand twisted in my hair, holding my head captive as his tongue pushed inside my mouth. Fire exploded through me, a deep well of heat settling between my legs. My hands reached up to catch his shoulders and then I was all in, giving as good as he gave me.
His other arm came around my waist, crushing me against him. This wasn’t nearly as awkward as it should’ve been, considering he was still on the bike. Maybe we could just skip dinner. Go straight to the fun part of the date…
A loud honking and the sound of someone screaming “Wooohooo!” from a passing car jolted me out of the moment. I pushed against his shoulders. Rome let me step back, although he kept his arm around my body. His eyes were smoky with lust, and I thought I saw the hint of a flush showing underneath the tan of his cheeks.
Yup, the feeling was definitely mutual.
