SUMMARY
From New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando comes the latest in the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series featuring a red-hot romance and plenty of mystery!

Ranger is at a crossroads: he has a chance to leave the motorcycle club and do something else with his life—but he keeps getting dragged back. When the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club asks for his help, Ranger agrees, not only because it is hard to say no to them, but also because he has a vested interest.

A woman is missing.

And Ranger knows her.

The Wind Dragons aren't the only ones hoping this girl can be found—on the hunt is Johanna Chase, a stubborn detective who won't give up until the missing woman is found safe. She needs Ranger to navigate the underground world of motorcycle clubs, and immediately, sparks fly. Ranger fights the attraction. He has no plans on going there, no matter how beautiful and badass she is. A biker and a cop? Ridiculous.

But the two of them soon realize that they're in way over their heads, and now they have to trust each other in order to save her. With the WDMC and the police force at their back, it should be no problem, right?

5 sexy, hookin' up on the down low stars for CROSSROADS!

Ranger is at a crossroads in his life. New to the Wind Dragons MC, he's not sure how involved he wants to be, but he keeps getting sucked back in. When he's asked for help finding a missing woman that he knows, Ranger must say yes. Detective Johanna Chase is determined to locate her cousin Elizabeth, who they're finding out was kidnapped by sex traffickers. Along the way, the two of them fall hard and deep, but once they find out they have more in common than just wanting to save Elizabeth, their connection just grows stronger.

When they save Elizabeth and Jo realizes just how close Ranger and her cousin once were, they'll have to make some tough decisions. Not only that, but what on earth made them think that a cop and a biker made sense together?

The Wind Dragons MC series is so excellent, and CROSSROADS is no exception. Actually, this might be my favorite of the series. Ranger and Jo had an insanely wicked connection. I really adored them together and was rooting for them. The obstacles to their relationship were well written and plotted out (but I won't get into details as you deserve to experience it with fresh eyes). The story started off fast paced as they ran around chasing leads to find Elizabeth. As their connection grew, their relationship became deeper and more complex.

The secondary plot was Ranger's discontent with being a Wind Dragon. He loved his MC brothers but never felt like he quite fit in (coming from a completely different club). That was interesting to watch play out, even if I didn't particularly like the ultimate outcome! This is one great series, and even though the characters are MC, it's less about club whores and illegal activities and more about the dudes falling hard for their women. It's sweet, sexy as hell and well written. I highly recommend picking them all up!!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; no condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; mild violence, no murder.

Reviewed by mjtoth at Reading Alley:

CROSSROADS is a perfect title for this romance.

Ranger's life has gone through some big changes and now he finds himself at a new MC, Wind Dragons, where he doesn't feel like he fits. All of the other men have slowly found the loves of their life, making him feel like the odd man out. Then Faye ropes him into a missing person's case to find Elizabeth, a woman that he had a fling with on a trip several years ago. Johanna is Elizabeth's cousin, a cop, and one determined woman to find her cousin. She agrees to work with Ranger since it's time critical to locate her.

As the case takes them to California, both Ranger and Jo find it more and more difficult to ignore the spark that ignites whenever they are together. Jo struggles with Ranger's lifestyle, going against everything she believes as a cop. Ranger never saw himself as a guy that would settle down. Of course, Elizabeth causes a huge ripple in their budding relationship since she sees Ranger as her one true love.

This was an engaging romance with the perfect blend of suspense, drama and off the charts passion that keep me glued to my Kindle.

BOOK INTERVIEW on March 2017
Love Motorcycle Club (MC) romances? Here's Chantal Fernando to talk about her latest, CROSSROADS. This book is part of the Wind Dragons MC series, which TRR reviewer Delta said is "so excellent" and that in Crossroads, "Ranger and Jo had an insanely wicked connection".

Q: Where did you get the inspiration for this story?

The idea for this story came to me early on in the series when Ranger was first introduced. I liked the idea of him being with a cop, someone who is essentially his enemy.

Q: Crossroads is a story in the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series. What connects all the books together?

What connects the books together is the relationship between characters, friendships and the different situations that bring them together.

Q: Please share a fun fact or behind the scenes experience when you were researching/writing this book.

I changed Jo's name about three or four times.

Q: Your Wind Dragons MC series are not your typical MC stories. Yes, there's a club atmosphere and some elements of danger, but for the most part, your characters are sweet, sexy and rough around the edges. What made you decide to write the softer side of MC genre? 

I think that is just me, and my style of writing. I like funny, and I like sweet and sexy, and the books just turned out that way. My characters lead the story for me, so it wasn't exactly a conscience decision to turn the series into a certain way,  it's just how it ended up! :)

Q: I really liked that Ranger was uncertain about where his place was in the Wind Dragons MC since he came from another club. Instead of forcing him to become an integral part of the MC, you instead kept him slightly removed from the group. Why did you choose to separate him from the primary series setting of the club?

To me, Ranger just felt like he never truly fit in. Talon fits in with the WDMC because of all his ties to them, but Ranger's only tie is to Talon.

Q: Human trafficking is a seriously scary thing. What kind of research did you do for writing this element of the story?

I did most of my research online, and read a few articles on the topic.

Q: What's up next for you?

I'm writing a new sexy series that will be announced very soon :)
