Auf der Flucht vor ihrem psychopatischen Ehemann landet Brenna mit ihrer kleinen Tochter genau dort, wo sie nie wieder sein wollte. Daheim unter dem Schutz ihres Vaters und dem Aces Motorrad Club. Dass sie sich mit ihrem spurlosen Verschwinden vor fünf Jahren, nach einem heißen One-Night-Stand mit dem Aces Member Dragon, zu Hause nicht gerade Freunde gemacht hat, ändert nichts daran, dass die Leute im Club sie lieben, wieder aufnehmen und versprechen, sie zu beschützen. Allerdings hat sie nicht vor, länger als nötig zu bleiben. Jahrelang hat Dragon Brenna hinterhergetrauert, wollte sie zu seiner Old Lady machen, nach nur einer gemeinsamen Nacht. Doch sie war und blieb verschwunden – bis heute. Und in ihrem Arm hält sie ein kleines Kind, das genauso aussieht wie er.

Aber Kozu ist unbesiegbar, der Kampf mit ihm selbst für eine Iskari viel zu schwer. Doch Asha ist nicht allein, denn plötzlich stellt sich jemand an ihre Seite. Jemand, der sie noch nicht einmal ansehen dürfte: Torwin, der geheimnisvolle Sklave Jareks ...
