Publisher's Summary

Royal Savage
I can't close my eyes...I refuse to. Every time I do, all I see is blood, death, and pain. I can feel it - almost taste it, bringing me back to that night.
It doesn't matter that I'm still breathing; I no longer need it, I no longer want it. I despise it along with everything else around me. The only thing I long for is to f--king fade away. I've given up. Until her at least...
Avalon.
She comes into my world, knocking me on my ass.
It turns me on to have her around me. Makes me want to wrap my hand around her tight little throat and f--k her until she feels my pain, feels the monster in me, but also makes me want to protect her from the very thing that she should be afraid of...me.
Once she sees the damage that I'm capable of; she'll look at me like everyone else around me does: with fear.
Avalon Knight
His eyes...The darkness in them draws me to him, making me want to taste him, feel him...and save him. I shouldn't have gotten on the back of his motorcycle that day. I know that now. Colton warned me. I was told it was dangerous. I was told that nothing would be the same. He was right.
Royal is dangerous, dark, and seductive; the very thing that keeps me hanging on, willing to give my last breath just to touch him...breathe him in.
He's savage, inked, and highly captivating. So different from his brother...He's hazardous to my health, mind, and body, yet the only thing that I crave. I want to free him. I want to change his mind, but I'm afraid that he's already too faded...

Broken, Damaged But Breathtakingly Beautiful!

All the positive reviews are spot on abut this audio! I LOVE It!

This was my first Victoria Ashley story and not only did she impress me with her writing style and how she keeps the listener in suspense, but she blew past all my expectations. Royal Savage is enthralling, gripping, and shocking and evokes a whirlwind of emotions. It's always the damaged characters who love harder, protect fiercer and seek revenge that make me hopelessly helpless not to fall in love with them. Royal is such a character who's story was not always easy, but it gripped me, had my heart aching, but the chemistry, love and romance between him and Avalon had my heart soaring.

Some Spoilers;
For the past two years, Royal has been filled with anger and pain after suffering a heart-breaking tragic loss and is left with feelings of guilt for not being able to stop it. As he goes about life, he's a shell of the man he once was and is consumed with the need for revenge against those who have taken everything from him, that is until Avalon comes in his life.

When Avalon first lays eyes on Royal, she's a little terrified and in awe of this big gruff, sexy tatted up man whose piercing eyes reflect pain. She soon learns Royal is the brother to the guy she has been currently dating, and is appalled when she sees how he and is family treat Royal. The more time she spends and learns about Royal, the more she is determined to be there for him when he is ready to move on.

I love discovering narrators I've never heard before and Samantha Cook and Lorenzo Matthews performance was a breath of fresh air. This duo did a great job with the characters, emotions and brought the story to life. I would definitely listen to either of these narrators in the future.

A well-rounded emotionally charged story with lot's of drama, spice, action, and a heart warming HEA. Well worth every minute, credit or sale! If you liked T.M. Frazier's King, then you may want to consider adding Royal Savage to your audio library.

PHEW I'M EMOTIONALLY DRAINED.. BUT VERY VERY HAPPY

As I sit here looking at the blinking cursor I'm struggling to find just the right words to express how enthralling this book was.. or the words to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed it, was totally blown away by its emotional storyline and its awesome unforgettable characters whose tragedies, battles, heartaches and happiness have consumed me every chance I got.

Royal's character was dark, gritty, damaged and deep but he wasn't a lost cause because Avalon could see beyond the handsome face, the body full of tattoos and the distant exterior.. YES, she could see the broken man beneath and the anger and pain that he carried daily. And Avalon falls - falls hard for a man who's still grieving, still seeking revenge and still emotionally closed off to life.. but it's too late to turn away - and anyway that's the furthest thing from her mind. Avalon's going to hold on tight, ride the storm, uncover the truth, reel at a mind-blowing secret.. and bring love and light back into Royal's life. However, it won't be without heartache, it won't be without dramas, it won't be without Royal fighting it all the way and it won't be without its challenges.. but it will be worth it.

This was such an epic dual POV journey to witness as Royal battles the all too real demons and heartbreak of his past and wrestles with conflicted feelings about opening his heart up again to let love seep in. There's some very loveable and entertaining secondary characters as well as some shady and dislikeable ones too. This story has a dark side in the past which is visited occasionally in flashbacks but it also has light humorous and sexy times in the present too as well as some high octane dangers. Royal owns a rough Bar, is a hot sexy Alpha Tattooist, he drives a Truck and rides a Harley and Avalon is tough when she needs to be, feisty when she wants to be and very caring to all those she loves. And I sucked up every word, devoured every chapter, relished every scene and basked in the afterglow of their HEA's.

Worth a credit? Great story, compelling characters, well narrated and YES very very creditworthy. This is a new Author for me but I'm going to be avidly watching her every new book release and I've already preordered Walk Of Shame - no, it's not the 2nd in the series - that's Jax's story.. but I'm sure, like this one, it'll tick all my boxes just the same.
