Tess Marsh eyed the gas gauge in dismay. Empty. Broken down on a lonely Montana road as the pitch-black darkness settled around her. There could be all kinds of wild animals out there. But Tess soon discovered that the worst of wild animals didn't come equipped with four legs.
Dallas Haynes rode through the night with the light from his motorcycle cutting a swathe through the darkness. Up ahead on the desolate highway, he saw the flashing lights of a vehicle parked by the side of the road just as his headlight picked up the sight of two gigantic elks standing in the middle of the road. He laid down on the brakes, his motorcycle skidding, almost laying over. As he brought his bike under control beside the vehicle, the car door opened and a vision of loveliness stepped from inside.
Tess looked up at the biker who had nearly run over the elk. Long dark hair tied back in a ponytail, silver eyes gleaming, a fierce expression on his face as he glared at her. A nightmare come true. Then she saw the headlights and the roars of the other bikes as they came upon them. The nightmare truly began.
Is it a thriller or a romance? Lauren Bach does an excellent job in combining both in LONE RIDER. This is a page-turner book if I have ever read one. Lauren Bach is one hot writer - in more ways than one. Bach has earned herself a place on my most favorite author list and is there to stay. I highly recommend this book not only to romance readers but to fans of the thriller genre as well.

Tess Mash runs out of petrol (gas) on a deserted highway in Montana and that is only the start of her problems in this comtemporary thriller\romance. She's "saved" by the dangerously sexy biker, Dallas Haynes and soon finds herself hostage to a gang of slave-trading criminals with Dallas her only protection - but can she trust him?
This is not a bad book, it's an easy read and Ms Bach definately has the 'sizzle' factor tied down, but our beautiful blond heroine managed to irritate me constantly, starting with travelling over deserted country without a mobile phone, without letting anyone know her itinery, in an expensive car and forgeting to either check her gas, or the distance to the next gas station. And she also cries. A Lot. Granted I'd probably bawl my eyes out if I was faced with the prospect of being gang raped by a bunch of ugly, murderous drug dealing bikers, but that along with the fact that her sole display of strength of character was pulling a nail out of a window and killing a rat with her shoe, failed to endear me. The sex is hot enough but does she HAVE to be a virgin? Especially a gorgeous 26-year old virgin, whose ex-fiance was too interested in his career to think about sleeping with her? Yeah right!(And by the way, ever since the movie "The truth about cats and dogs", I am convinced that there is no such thing as a good 'phone sex' scene and Ms Bach, I feel, could have left that one out).
All in all, I found our heroine didn't deserve the patient but somewhat lifeless hero and the plot flat not delivering the excitement it promised. What would have saved this book is humor. Cherry Adair wrote the same book but better, its called "Hide and Seek" and it's full of humor with the writer keeping her tongue firmly in her cheek.

Tess marsh jewellery designer. Has run out of petrol in the middle of nowhere. Dallas Haynes rides by on his motorcycle and stops to help. Trying to hurry Tess up he's worried the other members of the biker gang will turn up before he can take Tess to a motel and safety. But Tess is not sure she trusts this guy, sure he's handsome, but is he dangerous. Too late the rest of the gang arrive. That's when Tess's troubles really begin. This biker gang are very dangerous. Drug taking and violent criminals. Dallas trying to protect Tess claims her for himself.

For the most part this is an enjoyable read. I thought that the mix of a thriller with a romance included should have made a good combination. But the author stopped short of making this a riveting read by making it all too easy for Tess to survive in the biker gangs camp. Yes there were threats to her by another member of the gang who wanted her. But she was always saved in the nick of time. The characters were well drawn, especially Dallas, he carried the story for me. The romance side of things was okay but then again it was more physical. I needed more convincing of a real connection between this couple. But overall it was okay.

This is Lauren Bachs first novel but the second I have read (see also Slow Hands).
Its well written if slightly predictable. The sex scenes play out well. The fact that Tess is a virgin means she is more believable in her innocent assumptions.
The only odd thing is that the hero's name chainges halfway though the book (well Dallas sounded made up anyway) and that takes a few pages to adjust to.
This is a good thriller with a nice amount of sex thrown into the mix.
Recommended.
