It’s a spin-off series about Crow, a member of the Knights of Fury MC, and Bronte, who starts working with him.

Crow turns to his MC, and Bronte turns to Crow, and Nadia her old boss.

6–What do you love about the setting of your book?

I love the Fast & Fury custom garage, and the relationship and banter all the staff have there.

7–Are you a plotter (follow an outline) or a pantster (write by the seat of your pants)?

I’m definitely a pantster. I do an outline but it usually changes.

8–What is an ideal writing day for you?

I write when my kids are at school, and then hide in my office, with music playing until it’s time for school pick up. (With snacks of course)

I think the hardest thing is balancing work and home life. I still haven’t mastered it.

Not a movie, but the Supernatural series.

Fast & Fury #1

Custom Built

New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando brings you Fast & Fury: A sexy new series fully loaded with intense emotions and edge-of-your-seat suspense.

After losing her job, saying goodbye to a lifelong dream and having an all-around cruddy year, Bronte Pierce needs a break. A job at Fast & Fury might be just the thing to reset her life, even though she knows nothing about custom motorcycles. But taking a job isn’t the same as keeping it, and her fresh start quickly turns into a fresh nightmare.

Starting with her boss. Crow is hardheaded, stubborn, and brutally honest. He may be easy on the eyes, but he runs with an MC and he’s anything but friendly to Bronte. She suspects he has a softer side–just not for her.

Her whole life, Bronte has known that the only person she can truly count on to save the day is herself. But when a single murder turns into a conspiracy and the threat to her life is more than she can handle alone, it’s Crow who comes through–and her newfound family might just become her greatest strength.
