Sara's Review: Defiance (Masters of the Shadowlands #14) by Cherise Sinclair
APC PUBLISHER: VanScoy Publishing Group RELEASED: December 4, 2018 GENRE: LENGTH: MYSTERY, THRILLER, SUSPENSE FORMAT: EBOOK
Z’s day begins with sadness
A phone call from a dying friend leaves psychologist Zachary Grayson determined to fulfill the old survivalist’s request--a send-off that will comfort his grieving sons.
And then turns deadly
The death threat is only the beginning…because the letter isn’t a hoax. Z walks out of his office into a barrage of bullets. He can take being shot at, but when the second shot splinters the empty child-seat in his car, he’s shaken to the core. The horror of what would have happened if his little girl had been there spurs him to action.
Master Z is a Dom, a husband, a father—every instinct drives him to protect those under his care. When the police can’t catch his stalker, he must take matters into his own hands.
He must keep danger far from those he loves.
Secrecy and distance is the key. The funeral in Alaska is the perfect location, especially since Z won’t be alone. The survivalist’s sons have grown into men with lethal skills. With their help, he can trap the shooter and keep his family safe.
As long as his impetuous and all-too-observant wife, Jessica, doesn’t discover he’s using himself as bait. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I love these little extras we get into past characters lives. Z and Jessica being the first in the Masters of the Shadowlands series they are also two of my favorites. Defiance is the perfect little glimpse into where their lives are now and how they have grown as a couple. They still have their ups and downs like all couples, but their relationship is swoon-worthy. And good Lordy the sex is out of this world. This story also introduces characters in Cherise’s new series Sons of the Survivalist; the first book is going to be Not a Hero. So, of course, I’m going to be all over that. Defiance is everything I’ve come to expect in one of Mrs. Sinclair’s books, mystery, thrills, and danger. Along with love, family and scorching hot sex as an added bonus. I am giving it 5 Boundless Stars.
