After serving his country in Iraq and coming home to raise his boys, Dog has built his business from the ground up. He’s loving, strong, responsible, dependable, and a great father, son, and brother. After getting his business off the ground, he feels strongly about helping local veterans and does so through an annual charity ride, The Veterans’ Ride, in which all money raised is donated to local veterans.
Joci James is the single mother of a grown son, Gunnar. She has her own graphic design/marketing business. Joci meets Jeremiah when Gunnar starts working at the motorcycle shop and asks her to help plan the next Veterans’ Ride with them.
