Blog tour: Unbeautifully by Madeline Sheehan

by Madeline Sheehan

Warning: This is not a story about fate or destiny. This is a story about pain, sorrow, and suffering. This is an impulsive whirlwind romance between two lovers that are not meant to be together. Theirs is not a world with sunshine and roses. Instead, their love blossoms in a secret world full of crime, violence, and death. Their story is about what can be born from nightmares. 

Danielle “Danny” West is the daughter of Deuce West, President of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. A sweet and beautiful girl, she loses her way, searching for things that are always out of her reach. Erik “Ripper” Jacobs is the Sergeant of Arms in the Hell’s Horsemen. Once a man who always had a smile on his face, his life takes a turn for the worst when a tragedy befalls him, leaving him scarred and broken. During a midsummer night, Danny and Ripper’s paths cross, forever changing their lives. Hastily, their lust turns to love until another tragedy forces them apart. On a journey that is marred with ugliness and chaos, Danny and Ripper must discover if their unforeseen connection can find the beauty in their world. 

This is Danny and Ripper’s story. 

Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly.

Because without ugly, there would be no beauty.

         Character interview Danny and Ripper

“I think this is the house, pull into the driveway."  Jen and Kristie undo their seat belts and we get out of the car. The three of us walk up to the front door and knock. Danny opens the door (she really is beautiful) and tells us to come in.  The house is cute and there are toys and baby furniture everywhere. Danny tells us the baby is over at Eva’s so we can talk. Just then the front door opens and Ripper walks in sweaty and a little dirty. The three of us look at each other and back to him..yeah this is gonna be good….

Congrats on your marriage and baby!

Ripper:  *grins*

Danny: *grins* Thank you so much!

Three Chicks:  So how is life now that it’s not just the two of you-what did you have, a boy or girl and what’s the baby’s name?  

Danny:  *glances up at Ripper and smiles* We don’t want to give any surprises away in the next book, Unattainable, but I can tell you this. We never really had much time, just the two of us aside from when I was pregnant, so really, it’s not all that different.

Ripper: *frowns down at Danny* There’s a baby in my bed every night, I’d say that’s pretty damn different.

Danny: *snorts*  Ripper is, um, feeling a little neglected.

Ripper: Yeah.  Or maybe, a lot neglected.

Three Chicks:  Danny, were you attracted to Ripper before your prom night?

Danny: I mean, I knew he was a good looking man, but I never really looked at him in THAT way, you know? He was just Ripper, one of the boys.  But after Prom night…  *blushes* …everything changed.

Three Chicks:  Ripper, before Danny’s prom did you ever look at her as someone other than Deuce’s daughter?

Ripper: I appreciate a nice lookin’ piece of ass as much as the next dude. Danny’s hot as fuck, but I wasn’t thinkin’ much past her bein’ my Prez’s little girl. And hot as fuck.

Three Chicks:  Why are there such age differences in romances at the MC?

Ripper:  *frowns*  What?

Danny: *shakes her head no*  It’s really just us. And Eva and my dad.  I can’t think of anyone else who has a significant age gap between them.

Three Chicks:  Ripper, did you really think that you wouldn't have to tell Deuce and you could wait 20 years? Were you ever going to tell him about the two of you?

Ripper: *shrugs* I was scared. I knew he wasn’t gonna let me be with her and I didn’t wanna lose her. 
Maybe if I woulda had more time with her before shit went bad I woulda changed my mind but…  *looks sadly at Danny*  I fucked up.

Danny: *grabs Rippers hand and squeezes

Three Chicks:  Danny, do you think you have made peace with what happened to Nikki?

Danny:  *presses her lips together and looks away*

Ripper: Next question. She doesn’t need to be thinkin’ about that shit.

Three Chicks:  Ripper, did you ever feel like going back after listening to Danny's messages?

Ripper: Every single mother fuckin’ time. She ripped my damn heart out. But I was doin’ what I thought was best for her…

Three Chicks:  Danny, why did you think you had no other option than the one you took after Ripper left? 

Ripper: You don’t need to answer that baby.

Danny: *shakes her head*  No…it’s okay. I just…I was scared for myself and what my father would do. 
Ripper wouldn’t answer the phone and…  I wish things had gone differently…

Ripper: *nostrils flaring*  It don’t matter anymore. Things are just fuckin’ fine.

Three Chicks:  Ripper, when Cox told you that Danny was with ZZ you were upset that she had found somebody after a year. You wanted her to move on and forget about you, so why should it matter that she was with ZZ? Why was it okay for you to fill your bed trying to forget about her, but in your mind it wasn't okay for her to forget about you?

Danny:  Filling his bed?

Ripper:  *glares at Lisa* Yeah, I fuckin’ wanted her to move the fuck on, but thinkin’ it and then knowin’ she’s in another brother’s bed is two different fuckin’ things and that shit hurt. Hurt bad.

Danny:  Baby…

Ripper:  I’m fine. Drop it. 

Three Chicks:  Danny, why did you get the wings tattoo on your back-does it have some special meaning to you?

Danny: Um…sort of.  I read somewhere that they were a symbol of protection and I felt so alone, lost… 
Nobody, nothing could fill that so I got them, and I got them as big as I could, to protect all of me.  *looks sad and shrugs*  Plus, it helped that I think they look cool.

Ripper: You never told me that.

Danny: Because you came back and you stayed and it doesn’t matter anymore.

Ripper: You should have told me.

Danny: Why?

Ripper: Because I fuckin’ said so!

Danny: Shut up.

Ripper: No.

Danny: Yes!

Ripper: No!

Three Chicks:  Ripper, what do you think about Danny’s tattoo-do you find you spend a lot of time from behind admiring it? (Lisa tries not to laugh as she asks)

Ripper: *stops glaring at Danny and grins*  Never took her for the girl to get tattooed, and I wasn’t likin’ it at first, but yeah, I’m likin’ it now.  *winks*

Danny: *playfully shoves Ripper*

Three Chicks:  Danny, do you think if Ripper hadn’t come back, you would have stayed with ZZ?

Ripper: No. No fuckin’ way. We ain’t goin’ there.

Danny:  *whispers* I don’t want to talk about that.

Ripper: Good, ‘cause you ain’t talkin’ about it.

Three Chicks:  Ripper, when you got away from Frankie, you threw yourself in front of a car, what happened after that?

Ripper: Don’t remember much being unconscious and half head and all, but the police report has the truck driver sayin’ he stopped after he hit me, found me lyin’ in the street bleedin’ and busted up and called 911.  Woke up in the hospital a few days later.

Three Chicks:  Danny, did you know that Eva punched your dad and that was the start to mending their relationship?

Danny: *eyes widen*  Really?  *laughs*  Good for Eva.  My dad needs a good punch sometimes.

Three Chicks:  Ripper, did you know that Cage and Deuce went head to head fighting about Danny's well- being? Have there been any more family feuds?

Ripper: Yeah, Cox told me all the shit I missed.  Family feuds?  *laughs* Dude, that family is always fightin’ and always will be.

Danny: Hey!

Ripper: Truth baby. Sorry.

Three Chicks:  How are Eva and Deuce handling being grandparents? Think they'll be adding any new additions to their family?

Danny: My father and Eva love it!  Ivy hates it. She keeps complaining that “daddy isn’t paying attention to her anymore”.  *rolls eyes* I keep telling her, “I know the feeling”.  As for new additions to their family…  *smiles*  You’ll have to wait and see.

Three Chicks:  Ripper, does Kami still use you to make Cox jealous-or did Danny have to set her straight about not doing that?

Danny: *bursts out laughing*

Ripper: *scowling* She still fuckin’ does and Danny laughs, everyone laughs.  Real fuckin’ funny.  Crazy 
bitches.  All of ‘em.

Three Chicks:  Danny, how are you getting along with Cage-have you worked out your differences?

Danny: Um…Cage is…having his own problems at the moment.  He’s been gone a lot.

Ripper: *snorted*  Gone? You mean he’s been in Cali chasin’ down-

Danny:  *punches Ripper in the arm* Shh!  Stop spoiling things!

Three Chicks:  Ripper, is Cage still pissed at you over everything that happened with Danny?

Ripper: *sighs* Yeah. But the dude is a drama queen so I’m not expectin’ that shit to ever change.

Three Chicks:  Ripper, what were you going to say to Danny (when ZZ proposed) and what were you going to do when you got interrupted at the BBQ by everything happening to Dorothy?

Ripper: I don’t know. I was just…freakin’ the fuck out. I just couldn’t let it happen, I couldn’t fuckin’ lose her forever.

Three Chicks:  Danny, Ripper has many talents, and we bet you know most of them, but did you know that one of them is that he can pee like a girl when he has to?

Danny:  *starts laughing…laughing harder…clutching her stomach with tears in her eyes, still laughing*

Ripper: *glares at Lisa*  Thanks bitch.

Three Chicks:  What’s going on with Cage these days-is he still manwhoring around –think he’ll ever want to be with just one woman?

*Danny and Ripper glance at each other*

Danny: We can’t tell you.

Ripper: I’m not allowed to tell you because Danny says so.

Three Chicks:  How long before Ripper gets you knocked up again? How many more kids do you want?

Ripper: Soon. I want a shit ton.

Danny: Never again. Only one.

Ripper: *frowns at Danny*  Fuck that.

Danny: *narrows her eyes*  No.

Ripper: Yes.

Danny: No.

Ripper: YES!

Danny: I hate you!

Ripper: No, baby, you don’t.

Danny: I do!

Three Chicks:  Do you spend a lot of time at the Fu*k cabin? (sorry…that’s Kristie’s nickname for it)

Danny: *shakes her head* Bad memories...

Ripper: Needed a bigger place anyways.  More room to fuck….not that we ever fuck anymore…

Danny: Shut. Up.

Ripper: No.

Danny: Yes.

Ripper: You shut up!

Danny: Now, I really hate you!

Ripper: *grins* No, baby, you really don’t.

We figure this is a good time to end the interview. We get up and thank Danny and Ripper for sharing their thoughts with us. I look over at Jen and Kristie and give them the eye. I just want to make sure we don’t overstay our welcome. Seems like a couple of questions brought out the feisty in Ripper. We head for the front door thank them again and head for the car. I can’t help but turn around for one more look at Ripper…
