WILDE RIDERS is the first novel in a spicy new contemporary romance series about four sexy brothers, their small-town bar and their local country band. WILDE RIDERS can be read as a STAND ALONE NOVEL or as part of the SERIES. 

Cooper Wilde spent his entire adolescence counting the days until he could escape rural northwest New Jersey. Now at 26, he can't believe he's coming back. But his late father's bar, Haymakers, is in financial trouble and his older brother, Jake, has asked for Cooper's help. 

Riley Smith, 25, is fresh out of her Ivy League MBA program and wants to make an impression on her employer, H & C Bank. Her first solo assignment is a fraud investigation on a business loan they made to Haymakers. 

Even though Old Town is less than 90 minutes from New York City, Riley feels like she's stepped into another world in this remote, one-bar town. Riley can't wait to do her business and get back to the city as quickly as her sports car will take her...until she meets Cooper Wilde. He's not like the other guys in this rural town and Riley feels inexplicably attracted to him. 

If you like your trucks loud, your beer cold and your men'll love WILDE RIDERS.


All Cooper Wilde wanted was to leave his little Old Town in New Jersey for the big city lights and become a millionaire by the time he's 30. Everything seems to be good in his world and he's on his way to make his first million. He never thought he would be back in his hometown so soon but due to financial difficulties at the family bar he comes back to help his older brother.

Riley Smith is sent to Old Town, NJ to investigate fraud at Haymakers the Wilde's family bar.
She's an up an coming employer at a bank and wants to make a good impression with this investigation. What Riley despises more than anything are Wall Street wannabe's  who are always talking about making their first million and driving flashy cars.
By chance Cooper and Riley meet at Haymakers and they're attracted to each other. There is a little tiny misunderstanding that Cooper chooses to ignore and that is that Riley thinks he's a good ol' boy from Old Town. A bet is made and Riley is forced to stay in NJ with the Wilde boys for a few days, igniting the strong attraction for Cooper and a steamy physical relationship.
Can this relationship survive the secret Cooper is holding on to?

This is a cute, romantic story about finding love where you least expected, and also about putting your expectations aside and just giving love a chance. There's a bit of repetition when it comes to talking about NJ and how boring it is and also about the fact that Riley didn't like the Wall Street wannabes, it is enough that bothered me a bit. The story is entertaining enough that keeps the reader engaged from the beginning.
I like how each of the brothers were introduced and I'm looking forward to reading their stories.

Romance novelist Savannah Young grew up in rural northwest New Jersey in a place very similar to the fictional Old Town, which is featured in her books. When she's not at her computer creating spicy stories, Savannah is traveling to exotic locales or spending time with her husband and their bloodhounds.
