Meet Bill "Wild Bill" Reichert from BORN WILD!

This is Bill "Wild Bill" Reichert. And despite his nickname, he's the most loyal, steadfast, dependable man you'll ever meet. He reads classic literature, quotes poetry, and can rig an explosive in two seconds flat. At Black Knights Inc., the custom motorcycle shop that provides the cover for the clandestine government defense firm he works for, he's known as the man with the steady hands - and boy-oh-boy you can bet that fact hasn't slipped by our heroine Eve's notice. A former Navy SEAL, Wild Bill may tinker with fuel lines and shape custom gas tanks for tricked out Harleys during the day, but his nights are filled with the kind of black ops missions that never cross the desk of some pencil pusher at the Pentagon. With his quick mind, quick hands, and sitting atop his custom-made Harley named Siren, he's the guy every woman dreams about. Handsome, trustworthy, and with a body built to last, Wild Bill is all alpha all the time. But one look from our heroine and he's complete mush.

bad boy Bill

If you asked Bill why he has so many star tattoos, he'd shrug those big shoulders of his and say, "they're simply reminders of my days in the desert." But it's obvious from the grit of his square jaw and the tightening of his hard fists that they stand for so much more. Bill has lived a life on the edge, and the proof is there in glint of his brown-eyed stare. At this point in his journey, he's content with his job, his teammates, and his overactive love life - that is until an old flame walks through his front door, reminding him there can be so much more. With Eve Edens back in the picture, all bets are off...

So pick up a copy of BORN WILD and watch our tough and tender hero finally find the happily-ever-after he deserves!


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker dives back into action with the red-hot romantic suspense Black Knights Inc. series! They claim they're bad-boy bikers who own custom motorcycle shop, but these special-ops guys--a mix of Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, Marines, FBI and more--handle the jobs too tough for the government to tackle.


"Wild" Bill Reichert knows a thing or two about explosives. The ex-Navy SEAL can practically rig a bomb blindfolded. But there's no way to diffuse the inevitable fireworks the day Eve Edens walks back into his life, asking for help...


Eve doesn't know what to do when the Chicago police won't believe someone is out to hurt her. The only place to turn is Black Knights Inc—after all, no one is better at protection than the covert special-ops team. Yet there's also no one better at getting her all turned on than Billy Reichert. She has a feeling this is one blast from the past that could backfire big time...


"One heck of a riveting plotline... Born Wild is definitely not to be missed!" —RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ Stars

"A wild roller coaster ride of a story... Nonstop action." —Fresh Fiction

"Drama, danger and sexual tension... Romantic suspense at its best." —Night Owl Reviews, 5/5 Stars, Reviewer Top Pick


Julie Ann Walker is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Black Knights Inc. romantic suspense series. She is prone to spouting movie quotes and song lyrics, and prefers impromptu travel over the scheduled kind. You can find her on her bicycle along the lake shore in Chicago or blasting away at her keyboard, trying to wrangle her capricious imagination into submission. For more information, please visit or follow her on Facebook, and Twitter, @JAWalkerAuthor.


She's got three rules:

1. Trust no one...
Eve Edens has been abandoned, used, or manipulated by almost everyone she's ever met. Born into ridiculous wealth, she's dealt with the petty jealousies and sordid little resentments for nearly thirty years. But after three botched attempts on her life, she can no longer ignore the truth. Someone wants her dead.

2. Avoid the bad boys at all costs...
William "Wild Bill" Reichert, the wonderfully sexy boy who abandoned her years ago, is back in town. Only he's no boy. Now he's a covert operative — and he's all man. When Eve hires Bill to help her discover who is behind the attacks, Bill soon comes to suspect it's someone much closer to Eve than she dares to believe.

3. And never fall for the same ruse twice...
The search for the killer takes Bill and Eve deep into the dark secrets and strange world of the rich and famous, and into the heart of red-hot passion re-ignited by the peril that threatens to consume them both. But does Eve dare risk her heart on Bill a second time?
