I'm a big fan of the tv show Sons of Anarchy and it got me thinking... are there any romance novels out there about bikers / biker gangs? It seems like such great source material, but I can't seem to find any books out there. Any ideas?

Thanks!

For something more lighthearted, you might try Patti Berg's "Born to be Wild." The hero rides a bike, but he's also a caterer/chef if I'm remembering correctly.

For something much more dramatic and suspenseful, you might try Lauren Bach's "Lone Rider" about a biker gang. The hero is not who he appears to be.

Thanks Sandlynn!

I looked up the Bach book on Amazon and the "Also bought" suggestions included books by Jaci Burton... who has a whole biker series: http://www.jaciburton.com/berkley.html#wildriders. Has anyone read any of these?

Gosh I haven't thought of that book in ages but I remember when I read it I liked it very much.

Annie and the Outlaw by Sharon Sala, the hero is a biker, with a bit of a twist.

Seems like I've read a few more, but can't think of them right now.

Not straight romance, but the Ukiah Oregon series by Wen Spencer features a very important set of secondary characters who call themselves Dog Warriors. They are perceived to be a biker gang who are not always on the right side of the law. It's a really interesting set of fantasy/sci fi books that I re-read every couple years or so. There is a strong romantic relationship between the title character, who was a feral child raised by wolves in the woods of Oregon, and an Asian-American FBI agent named Indigo Zheng.

I really enjoyed Lone Rider too. It's on my keeper shelf.

I tried one of the Jaci Burton ones - I believe it was Riding the Night. Not my cup of tea. Too many tatoo's, piercings, and I think this was one were the guy used to think of the girl as his little sister bc he knew her when she was a teen. Not sure of the age difference but I don't get into stories where the woman wants to prove she's not a little kid anymore.

First off, anybody who is a fan of Rufus Wainwright is okay by me.

Devin the hero of WHAT THE LIBRARIAN DID rides a motorcycle, but he's not a biker, per se. Just a reforming rock n' roller.

I read a book not terribly long ago with a hero who rode a Ducati, but I cannot remember which book it was. I want to say it was a Toni Blake (her heroes tend to be bad boy types who ride motorcycles) but I'm not sure which one. Any of them would be worth the read though. I'd start with TEMPT ME TONIGHT, LETTERS TO A SECRET LOVER, or ONE RECKLESS SUMMER.

This is a bit of a zany one, but Angie Fox's The Accidental Demonslayer series features a gang of geriatric biker witches. A hilarious paranormal with a lot of little surprises thrown in.

In both Something About You and, oh, gosh, some series novella I read there were shockingly identical scenes: hero offers short dress wearing heroine a ride home on his motorbike. Imagine the possibilities: quick flash of panties ensues, bare thighs pressed up against him, rush of cold air against her legs vs. warmth of his body, her arms around his broad, muscular torso, etc, etc.

Sigh.

I loved Lone Rider too. Her best book by far. Another biker hero is from One Summer by Karen Robards. Another oustanding book IMO. Bad boy hero.

I read the first one a while back. Though I will have to read it again due to when i first read it some things i wasnt into so i skipped it (though actually, i will still be skipping it LOL)

Riding Wild was hot, interesting. Some of the scenes are very hot, two of which is: one when the hero and heroine are in a tent (out in the open with other bikers in tents) and are having sex. and then another is when they are outside in the back of a penthouse.

I read about the others, I was shocked that the newest one will be a threesome.

I havent read pass the first one, I was a bit irked when i read some parts of the second one where something about initiation involves sex with other men, but I doubt this happens

Everytime I come to this board and read the thread titles, this one always makes me think of Grease 2 (with Michelle Pfifer) and "Cool Rider."

And now I can't get the refrain out of my head. I wanna a coo-oooo-ooo-ool rider!

Yeah, this topic made me think of the movie I recently saw called Don't Tell Her It's Me.
