This is a unique one of a kind dictionary highlighting terms expressly used amongst the biker and outlaw biker culture. It does not pretend to be the end all, be all, as biker dictionaries go however it is my version of the ultimate outlaw biker dictionary.

Clara Becker is a supremely gifted composer – a talent of little to use to a woman in 1830s Europe. Her compositions only have worth when they are published under her brother's name, yet this deception barely enables them to scrape out a living in the poorest quarter of London.
Darien Reynard, the most celebrated musician in Europe, pursues success with a single-minded intensity. When he hears Becker's compositions, he knows that this music will secure his place in history. Darien tracks the composer down and, with some difficulty, convinces the man to tour with him. Mr. Becker agrees, but with the most unusual condition that he bring along his sister...
Darien’s unexpected desire for Clara jeopardizes the entire tour, but Clara must protect more than her heart. If he discovers her secret, her family’s new found fortune - and their very reputation - will be destroyed.
