Cover Design: Natasha Snow

Length: 72,000 words approx.

Rebellion Series

Book #1 - Escape - All Buy Links


Returning to their pack was always going to be dangerous, but is the fight for freedom worth the cost?

Cole and Logan return to London, ready to execute their plan of connecting with the human resistance. But with both of them blamed for the deaths resulting from Cole’s escape attempt, they receive a less than warm welcome from the McKillan pack.

Cole gets a second chance, but it’s not without restrictions, and he must toe the line and do whatever it takes to fit in. But earning the trust of his alpha and fellow shifters comes at a price.

For Logan, being close to Cole and unable to touch him is a daily torment, but watching from the sidelines while Cole learns what it means to be a McKillan enforcer is pushing him to his limits.

Both men must play their parts to perfection if they want Cole to be accepted into the pack, and that means doing what’s asked of them, no matter the cost.

Defiance is an angsty MM paranormal romance, featuring established relationship, secrecy and intrigue, and all the pining.

Carra's Review

I have to say, I liked this even more than the first book in the series.  Defiance grabs you right from the beginning with a high-tension atmosphere upon Cole and Logan’s return to London, and that tension does not let up even a teensy bit through the whole story.  The expectations placed upon Cole are tremendous, and the pressure is on both him and Logan to not give away anything that could jeopardize the rebellion or reveal their relationship.

Cole has to endure interrogation, training, and trying to fit in with his team—sometimes under brutal conditions, even with his own team members.  Emotions run high, resulting in both Cole and Logan walking a very fine line as Cole is assimilated into the pack.

You want suspense?  You’ve got it.  You want sexual tension?  Yep, that too.  You want an absolutely unexpected twist you will never see coming?  You’re definitely in the right place.  Okay, maybe you’ll get a teeny, tiny inkling near the end…

I was on edge the whole time I was reading this, and I loved every minute of it.  Defiance gets 5 stars from me, and now I REALLY can’t wait to see what’s next!  And is it too much to hope for maybe a backstory for an unexpected couple, say…as a short story bonus?  Pretty please?  M/M paranormal fans, you really do need this series in your library (and yes, you need to read these in order).  18+ for adult language, violence, and sexual content.
