Simple. Neat. Orderly.

A place for everything, and everything in its place.

Karmen Handel’s life growing up had been anything but quiet and simple. A deadbeat father, a mother who never wanted her, and a grandmother who could care less were the perfect recipe to ensure Karmen built a wall around herself and never let anyone in. When her past comes back to haunt her, Karmen has no one to help her. Until Nickel.

Complicated. Dirty. Restless.

Live to ride. Ride to live.

Nickel Cunningham lives free with the brothers he calls family and has never craved anything more until he met Karmen. The shy, quiet nurse who cares for his grandma caught his eye months ago, and he hasn’t been able to get her off his mind since. Nickel knows what he wants, but he’s never had to fight for it before. Until Karmen. 

4 Stars 

Nickel is the first title in the new Fallen Lord MC series.  I was so eager to read this title as I love everything Winter Travers has written.  As much as I adored this pair of characters, I felt like at times there could have been more character development, particularly in regard to Nickel. I'm sure more will be revealed throughout the series. 

Karmen is a shy and quiet, she doesn't trust easily and is quite insecure.  

Nickel on the other had is your typical alpha, the sergeant at arms for the Fallen Lords he is strong, possessive, protective and a take charge kind of guy. 

I loved that this title had a great blend of drama, suspense, romance, intrigue and that touch of humor and sarcasm I've come to expect to see in Ms Travers work.  

Overall it's a great start to a new series, and I cannot wait to read more of the Fallen Lords, I am sure they will work their way into my heart much as the Devil's Knights. 

“You got plans tonight?” I was done chasing this chick. It was time to get straight to the point.


“You say that a lot, babe.”

“What?” she asked, confused.

“You say um a lot.”

“Oh, I guess I never noticed.” She stood there staring at me.

“Plans? You got any tonight?”

“Um.” She realized she said um again and blushed red, as her eyes darted down. “No plans.”

“You ever been to Shake the Lake?”

“Once, when I was seventeen. I didn’t get to see the fireworks, though.”

I reached out to grab my keys but grabbed her hand instead. “Come with me tonight,” I pleaded, our eyes locking.

She tried to jerk her hand out of my grasp, but I tightened my grip. “I can’t,” she insisted.

“Sure you can. You just told me you don’t have plans.”

“Um, I forgot that I have to go to…um…badminton practice,” she stuttered.

“Badminton practice?”

I didn’t think she could blush anymore, but her cheeks turned a dark shade of red, and she nodded yes. “I felt that I needed to broaden my horizons and figured that would be a good place to start.”

“Well, how about you broaden your horizon with me tonight, and you can pick back up with your badminton practice next week?”
