TJ's Rescue: Book Two of The TJ Series
No matter the loss of his dear friend, his responsibilities at the Blue Note bar, and his growing dependence on the bottle, TJ feels the pull of the open road. At heart, he’s a biker, and his best friend is his 1959 Harley Panhead, a friend that has never failed him, so he loads his bag and hits the road on his Harley. At a bar in North Texas, he hears about Hurricane Celia targeting the Texas coast, Corpus in particular. TJ immediately hits the road again, and while some are heading North to escape the storm, TJ rides into the storm, not knowing he is riding into a storm much more dangerous than Celia. Young girls have gone missing, and once again TJ is pulled into working with Jean Marie, this time for a rescue operation.

TJ's Ride: Book One of The TJ Series
After 14 months of riding riverboats in Vietnam, TJ Hamlin receives orders to Naval Air Station backyard duty in his hometown of Corpus Christi. It had been three years since he had seen his brothers from the club, and he was looking forward to long rides in the South Texas sun on his old ’59 custom Harley. Little did he know he would end up working undercover for the Navy as a bouncer in a local bar, running for his life, and becoming involved in taking down a drug ring within his own motorcycle club.

In TJ's Ride, an action novel of approximately 70,000 words and the first in a planned series, TJ is torn between his dedication to the brothers in the club and his desire to stop drugs from tearing down the only real family he has known. When he discovers who is involved in the operation, he is torn even more, but when a friend is murdered, TJ is focused on one thing: revenging his friend at all costs.
