Only 12 days until No Surrender releases, the first book in the new No Regrets series. I’m so excited to finally share this story with you all! It’s such a sexy, emotional story…and while it is a spin off from the No Shame series, you can read it without having read that one (though you totally should read it because it’s super duper sexy, high heat, and one hell of an amazingly emotional rollercoaster. Just saying.) But let me tell you a little about what No Surrender is about…
This is Wander Dwyer, a tough Dom who owns a private security firm. He loved protecting Indy and his family (the main characters in the No Shame series), but when that assignments ends, he needs a new job…and he finds one when Jesse, the owner of his BDSM club, is getting threats. Wander and his team of men move into Jesse’s house to protect him and find out who’s behind the threats. An added benefit? The daily sexy shenanigans they engage in.
Then there’s Burke Kent. We met his brothers (Blake and Brad) in the No Shame series, and we got a glimpse of Burke as well…and not a positive one. He was a total dick to Blake’s boyfriend, Aaron, and we found out he had an affair with his secretary for years (he’s straight), and that he’s an alcoholic. But Burke has spent some time away from everyone to get sober and to make changes to his life. Now he’s back for a second chance…but his brothers aren’t exactly eager to reconcile. Good thing he’s found a club where they’re willing to complete his training to become a Dom…by assigning him a mentor.
That mentor is Wander, and from the get go, Wander and Burke clash. or I should say, Burke clashes with Wander. Wander is merely fascinated by this prickly guy who throws up defenses every time he comes even close… He’s like a puzzle Wander wants to solve. But will Burke let him?
When Burke hits rock bottom, Wander is the one to pick him up and offer him a place to stay…with him and in his men, in Jesse’s house. They grow closer and those sparks of frustration become sparks of a different kind. But who is Burke really? Is being a Dom really who he is and what he needs?
No Surrender has it all:
🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 plenty of heat

If you loved the No Shame series, you’ll love this one, as it has a very similar feel. But everyone who loves high heat, emotional romances will adore this one. Plus, it’s a long ass book at 97k words, so there’s that, haha.
And to whet your appetite even more, here’s a new teaser…
Wander pressed a soft kiss against his ear, and it struck Blake all over again how tender the man was with him. He’d never expected that, not based on the hard ass reputation Wander had as a Dom. “Everyone comes out when they’re ready. Don’t beat yourself up over that. Besides, I do see a definite benefit of you postponing your coming out.”
Burke frowned. What the hell was Wander talking about? “Huh? Like what?”
“Like the fact that it allowed me to be your first. If you’d discovered the dick-loving side of you earlier, I would’ve missed out on the experience of initiating you into the wonders of anal sex.”
Burke snorted. “You do remember I already had experience, right?”
“From the other side. That doesn’t count.”
“And when was the last time you bottomed?”
Wander laughed. “Actually, I’m vers. Not kidding. Though I do prefer topping.”
Burke pushed against Wander’s arms, and the man immediately released him. He turned around and faced him. “You serious?”
“About being vers? Yeah. Why?”
“I guess I hadn’t expected it.”
Wander raised an eyebrow. “Don’t tell me you adhere to that notion that a dominant man can’t or shouldn’t bottom.”
Burke bit his lip. “Not consciously, but I guess I did. Like, when I knew we were gonna have sex, I assumed I’d be on the bottom.”
Wander’s eyes widened, and a look of horror passed over his face. “Shit, I never realized that. I should’ve clarified you had options.”
“You would’ve bottomed for me our first time?”
Wander cupped his cheek, his eyes going all soft again. “Yes. And I owe you an apology for not communicating better. I assumed and that was stupid of me. It just goes to show that even guys my age and experience still fuck up.”
“You’re not that old.”
“Twelve years older than you, sweetheart. I had sex for the first time when you were still in preschool.”
Burke groaned. “That’s disturbing, dude.”
“You didn’t realize I was older?”
Burke shrugged. “Sure, but it doesn’t really matter to me. Age is not that important once you’re over twenty-five or so. And the older you get, the less it matters.”
“That’s enough heavy talk for now. Why don’t we take a shower together and see if we can help each other focus on more…pleasant things, yeah?”
Burke grinned. “Pleasant? That sounds good. Whose pleasure are we talking about, yours or mine?”
“If we do it the right way, both of ours.”
Preorder No Surrender now and start reading as soon as it releases on April 18. You do not want to miss this!
