Stand-Alone, HEA, No cheating. Selected Sinners MC Romance Book II.


After serving half a dozen tours in Afghanistan and Iraq as a US Marine, Cambio Todelli – known as Toad to his MC brothers – is left with a penchant for violence and no emotional attachment between his heart and his groin.

As the Sergeant at Arms for the Selected Sinners, Toad has one assignment and he takes it very seriously. Keeping his Brothers safe from harm at any cost.
Although he believes he ultimately stands for what is moral and justified, he admits sometimes the lines simply become blurred. In short, Toad is a walking contradiction. The descendant of a long line of prideful Italian American US Marines, he is now living a far cry from his upbringing in the Catholic church.
Sydney Shephard is an orphan, and has recently lost her only sibling, an older brother, to a lifelong prison sentence. After losing her job, she is now homeless, penniless, and without any form of family or friend.
As easy as it may be to do so, she refuses to lose her spirit, her spunk, or her sense of humor.
After having been in multiple abusive relationships in her past, Sydney has vowed to either live a life of solitude, or find a man who will treat her as an equal.
When a bank robbery goes awry, leaving Toad on one side of the bank, and Sydney on the other, Toad must make a decision and make it quick.
And when Toad decides to do something, heaven help anyone who tries to stop him.

*WARNING* Depicts an Outlaw
Motorcycle Club, criminal activity, graphic sex, and violence, but has HEA, no
cheating, and NO sex outside the relationship. 
Avery, a Criminal Justice major in college,
yearns for a bad-boy. An alpha male. An unattainable guilty pleasure. The
unicorn of men.
When the Selected Sinners Motorcycle Club rides
into Avery’s bar one night, her heart stops, and her mind goes to work. She’s
immediately attracted to the baddest man in the group, Axton. She wants him at
any cost. 

Axton isn’t only a bad boy, he’s the President
of The Selected Sinners Motorcycle Club, a 1%er Outlaw Motorcycle Club. At the
onset of a gun deal with a notorious Mexican prison gang, there is no place in
Axton’s life or mind for a college girl with a smart mouth.

Avery quickly becomes willing to sacrifice
whatever she must for a shot at Axton. 

Axton is willing to sacrifice nothing, and has
no interest in her advances. His mind and devotion are on his club brothers and
finishing the gun deal with the MS-13, which will allow one of his brothers in
prison to make it out alive. 

But Axton finds in doing the deal, he needs
Avery and her Criminal Justice education to complete it.

If Avery makes it out alive, it will be a small

If Axton makes it out without falling for her,
it would be an even bigger miracle. 


This book is a stand-alone love story. It does
have tremendous violence, explicit language, sexual situations, and the
intricacies of being in an Outlaw Motorcycle Club depicted. All sexual partners
in this book are over the age of 18. 


Stand alone love story. HEA. No cliff hanger.


Scott Hildreth is a very analytical sort who bases his beliefs on
statistics he compiles in his head. Often going as long as a month without so
much as a single sip of water, he drinks coffee as if it were the lifeblood of
his writing. 
Scott fears flying, clowns, and amusement park rides. Tall and lean with a
cleanly shaven head and covered in tattoos, he doesn’t blend in well. After
reading his writings, this makes perfect sense. His vibrant characters,
backstories, and plots, although always relatable, generally stand out as much
as he does. Willing to discuss matters at length most people shy away from, Scott’s writing
has revolved around such subjects as domestic abuse, suicide, alcoholism, drug
abuse, cancer, divorce, homosexuality, religion, and lack thereof. 

Born in San Diego, California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas his home. He is
a proud father, and lives devoted to the love of his life, Jessica. When he
isn’t writing, he may be found on his motorcycle or in a local coffee house. 

Scott’s novels include Broken People,
Undefeated, Unstoppable, Unleashed, Unbroken, Baby Girl – Ruined, Baby Girl –
Owned, Baby Girl – Loved, To the Depths of Hell, The Alpha-Bet, Finding Parker,
Karter, Confessions of a Smut Author, When It All Began: A Jessie Jayne Novella
and the first book in his new Selected Sinners MC series, Making the Cut. March 25th,
his second book in the series, Taking the
will be released.

To keep up with Scott, what he is doing, and where you can find
him, because he does do book signings and on occasions he has been known to do
a “nontakeover” takeover, see below:
