Tourmaline Harris’s life hit pause at fifteen, when her mom went to prison because of Tourmaline’s unintentionally damning testimony. But at eighteen, her home life is stable, and she has a strong relationship with her father, the president of a local biker club known as the Wardens.

Virginia Campbell’s life hit fast-forward at fifteen, when her mom “sold” her into the services of a local lawyer: a man for whom the law is merely a suggestion. When Hazard sets his sights on dismantling the Wardens, he sends in Virginia, who has every intention of selling out the club—and Tourmaline. But the two girls are stronger than the circumstances that brought them together, and their resilience defines the friendship at the heart of this powerful debut novel.


“With DONE DIRT CHEAP, Sarah Nicole Lemon has brought together everything I love about the best of stories. The prose is lyrical, the atmosphere is windblown and sultry. And the boys? These are some of the most carefully wrought love interests I’ve read in a very long time. If you are haunted by the idea of a dark, modern fairy tale and knights in shining armor with Harleys for horses, this book is for you.” —#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Renèe Ahdieh

“A unique, wild, captivating, sexy ride! I could get lost inside this gritty, contemporary southern world Sarah Nicole Lemon has created again and again. DONE DIRT CHEAP revs its engine from the first scene and is full-throttle until the end.” —#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Kerri Maniscalco

“Sarah Nicole Lemon’s prose and characters crackle with more explosive energy and fire than a revving motorcycle engine. This is a story of fierce, powerful young women living life and loving on their terms. I defy you to put it down. It’s the kind of book that makes you want to go out and get a tattoo—and a line from it as your tattoo. Save room on your body if you read it.” —Jeff Zentner, William C. Morris Award-winning Author of The Serpent King

“Violence, deception, and crime are tempered with love and friendship as Virginia and Tourmaline help each other in their missions to survive the limits and dangers placed on them by the men in their lives. … Readers will stand up and cheer for these mighty heroines.” —Kirkus Reviews

“This gritty story is told through strikingly beautiful writing and the Southern setting…leaps off the page. Makes for a wild, enthralling journey.”  SLJ Review

“Debut author Lemon spins a complicated story of revenge, motorcycles, female friendship, and sexy bikers who appreciate and protect the strong women they fall for…the book is undeniably fun to read, with a satisfyingly hard-won happy ending.” —Publishers Weekly
