Property Of: Sons of Slaves MC is an urban fiction romance written by Dionne Smith Miller. The geographical separation from Shane Hill had made breaking up with the man somewhat easier for Dakota. She had lost her job in Texas over their affair and, unable to find another position in the area, had returned home to New Orleans. Dakota was now the senior paralegal at the law firm where she worked, was respected and doing well financially. When she got the summons from Shane, asking her to come back to him, her heart skipped a beat -- especially with the news that he was finally through with his wife, Dianna. Dakota called in sick the next day, picked out some classy threads for their reunion, and drove the six-hour trip in her black-on-black Audi. She just couldn't wait to rush into his arms. He looked a bit different, sporting a goatee and wearing a black bandanna adorned with a skull, but those changes seemed to suit him. The tattoos, however, were a different matter, especially the large one on his shoulder blade. He told her he wanted to show her his world and then looked askance at the outfit she was wearing. As she dressed down for a ride on his bike, she wondered about that world and what had happened to the Shane she fell in love with.

Dionne Smith Miller's romantic urban fiction novel, Property Of: Sons of Slaves MC, is a gritty and compelling tale about a professional woman's introduction to the outlaw motorcycle club sub-culture where women are called P.O.s, short for Property Of. It's a harsh and forbidding world for a woman who'd been raised to believe she was worthy of respect and, as a professional at the top of her field, submissively cleaning the clubhouse and preparing the food for the members of the club with the other P.O.s seemed absurdly primitive somehow. It was a world where Shane was no longer hers but was Capital, dispenser of discipline and the Boss. Even she would only be calling him boss or master in her role as a supporter of the Sons and as his personal property. Could her love survive these challenges to her very identity?

I marveled at Miller's vividly portrayed look at the outlaw club sub-culture and wondered just how both the male members and female supporters could actually submit to the harsh and authoritarian culture. Miller gets the reader totally involved in Dakota's dilemma in this well-written and provocative urban story. Property Of is a novel for adult readers, which has some explicit sexual content and a few violent scenes which some may find upsetting. That said, it's hard not to get concerned about Dakota and the choices she has to make. Property Of: Sons of Slaves MC is highly recommended.
