TRACKER’S END (Wind Dragons MC #3) by Chantal Fernando-Review and Interview
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date August 11, 2015
Tracker is everything I’ve ever wanted.
I see him. I’ve watched time change him.
I’ve been patient, but he still hasn’t noticed me. Not the way I want him to. The more time I spend with the MC, the more I understand.
When you want something, you have to take it. You have to fight for it.
And Tracker is more than worth fighting for…
REVIEW: TRACKER’S END is the third installment in Chantal Fernando’s adult, contemporary Wind Dragons erotic, romance MC series focusing on the men and women of the Wind Dragons MC. This is Tracker and Lana’s storyline. Lana is Anna’s (Arrow’s Hell) best friend, and Tracker is the MC ‘tracker’-if someone needs to be found, Tracker is the man to get the job done. Tracker’s End can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but I recommend reading the series in order for backstory and cohesion.
Told from first person point of view (Lana) with a few chapters from Tracker’s POV, the storyline follows the building relationship between two people of opposite personality and responsibilities. Lana is hired as a nanny to look after Faye and Dex’s (Wind Dragons president) six year old daughter Clover, and Tracker is a biker whose history with women, and one woman in particular, rattles Lana’s proverbial nerves. Tracker has been attracted to Lana since the first day they met, one year earlier, but Lana isn’t about to jump into a relationship with a man whose sexual escapades could be the subject of many an erotic romance novel-in fact, Lana is an erotic romance novelist who keeps her true passion a secret from everyone but her mom. While Tracker slowly seduces the woman of his fantasies, Lana will become the target of jealousy and revenge.
The sexual attraction between Lana and Tracker is immediate, intense and not without some moments of jealousy and possessiveness. Lana’s sexual history is minimal compared to Tracker, and most of the other MC members, but Lana quickly succumbs to the needs of the man with whom she is falling in love. $ex scenes are erotic and intense.
Throughout the storyline we are witness to Tracker’s promises of fidelity; how his past is now his past, and Lana is the woman that calls to his heart. But a perceived betrayal by Lana finds Tracker quickly taking advantage of his current circumstance, and in this I had some issues with the double standard as it pertained to Lana and Tracker’s relationship. Tracker is an arrogant, alpha male who continues to focus on his own personal needs and wants, never considering how his actions will affect the woman that he loves.
Most of the previous storyline characters play secondary and supporting roles including Faye and Dex (Dragon’s Lair); Arrow and Anna (Arrow’s Hell); and several of the other MC members. We are introduced to Lana’s mother-a single parent and nurse who is totally accepting of her daughter’s choices in life. Allie returns as the resident Club whore but her prior relationship with Tracker will not only affect Lana but the Wind Dragon MC as well-not everyone will survive to see another story. Anna’s brother Rake will come face to face with his past-a past that wants nothing to do with revisiting heartbreak and broken promises.
TRACKER’S END takes another intimate look at the world of the MC; the lovers, the fighters, the rules and regulations; the breakdown of power and the penalty for disobedience and going rogue. There are moments of romance and love; betrayal and heartbreak; jealousy and revenge. The series will captivate your imagination; you will fall in love with the bikers and their old ladies; the romance is a promise for the future. No matter how tough the biker claims to be, in the end, it is the woman with whom he falls in love, that has to be the toughest of them all.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date May 19, 2014
When I found my boyfriend cheating on me, I did something stupid.
Or should I say, someone?
Because of that mistake, I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong in.
I’m a law student. They’re criminals. He’s the vice president of a motorcycle club. I’m a good girl with a strict upbringing. He’s my ex-boyfriend’s brother.
And I’m screwed.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date June 16, 2015
Being the younger sister of a Wind Dragons MC member isn’t as great as you’d think it would be.
I can’t escape the details of my brother’s exploits.
No one tells me anything.
Men who know who I am tend to stay away from me.
And worst of all:
The members of the MC are off-limits.
When Arrow catches my eye, I make it my mission to make him happy again.
When I fall head over heels in love with him, I just hope he will be there to catch me.
And that my brother doesn’t kill him.
TRC: Hi Chantal and welcome to The Reading Café. Congratulations on the success of your WIND DRAGONS MC series.
Chantal: Thank you so much and thanks for having me!
TRC: We would like to start with some background information. Would you please tell us something about yourself?
Chantal: I’m 28 and live in a small town in Western Australia.
TRC: Who or what influenced your career in writing?
Chantal: I stopped reading in high school, and got back into it when I picked up my sister’s copy of Twilight. I fell back in love with reading and writing and haven’t looked back since.
TRC: Would you please tell us something about your 2015 releases of TRACKER’S END and ARROW’S HELL, and the Wind Dragons series?
Chantal: All these books focus on the love stories between a member of the MC and their leading lady. I think Arrow and Anna have one of the hardest paths to each other, but Tracker and Lana also have their own problems to overcome before they get their happily ever afters.
TRC: How many books do you have planned for the series?
Chantal: Three so far… and maybe more
TRC: If you could virtually cast the leading characters (so far), which actors or models would best represent your ideal image?
Chantal: I generally stay away from this, as I prefer readers to create their own image in their head, but Brock O’Hurn is definitely my Tracker.
TRC: What challenges or difficulties (research, logistics, MC lifestyle) did you encounter writing this particular story and series?
Chantal: I don’t like to write about cheating, even though it’s unrealistic for every member be 100% faithful to their women.
TRC: Do you have any further plans to continue your RESISTING LOVE series?
Chantal: No, I don’t. A few people have asked about the Morning Alliance books, which I may revisit, but I have a heap of books planned before that
TRC: How do you keep the plot unpredictable without sacrificing content and believability?
Chantal: I start with a good, well thought out outline. I think that people in general are unpredictable, and my characters are the same, they take over the story, directing where it goes. I think it makes the characters more believable, because sometimes the direction the novel takes surprises even me.
TRC: Do you believe the cover image plays a deciding factor for many readers in the process of selecting a book or new series to read
Chantal: I think a pretty cover helps! But if the book is good, word of mouth will still make sure the book is picked up.
TRC: When writing a storyline, do the characters direct the writing or do you direct the characters?
Chantal: The characters definitely direct my writing lol.
TRC: Do you listen to music while writing? If so, does the style of music influence the storyline direction? Characters?
Chantal: I do listen to music while I write, unless I’m having trouble concentrating, then I need silence. With me, I don’t think music influences my storyline, I think I’m attracted to music that I can connect to a particular scene I’m writing, or the novel as a whole
TRC: What three things would you like to accomplish in the next five years?
Chantal: I’d like to travel the world and meet as many of my readers as I can.
Keep writing books that my readers enjoy.
Have more of my books available in store.
TRC: What is something that few, if any people, know about you?
Chantal: I’m super shy and terrible at public speaking!
TRC: On what are you currently working?
Chantal: I will be announcing this very soon!
