by on April 29, 2014

Primal Surrender is releasing in a couple of weeks on May 13!

This is the third and final book in The Surrender Trilogy and thus ends our visit to Stone River, Texas.  Because I know how much you enjoy being teased, I’m sharing a snippet from the book every Tuesday between now and release day! So make sure you’re following my blog so that you don’t miss any!

Primal Surrender3 - Primal Surrender

The Surrender Trilogy III: Brothers Mack and Ryker Thompson know the pain of failure intimately having recently fallen from the heights of success. One a former football star, and the other a master at his artistic craft, they couldn’t be more different from each other. Mack hides behind anonymity in order to cover up his pain, while Ryker figures it doesn’t matter if the glass is half-full or half-empty as long as there’s a bartender refilling it all will be well. Broken and haunted by the mistakes of their past, neither expected to find a ray of sunshine in the clouds of their pity party.

Claudia Schmidt, is the only daughter of a real estate tycoon that has a plan for turning the small town of Stone River into a suburb of Austin, Texas. When she is sent in to replace the project manager, and convince the town of the necessity of the project, she finds herself falling in love with the town, and the Thompson brothers.

Although ménage relationships aren’t foreign to Mack and Ryker, neither one intends on living one, so how can they decide who gets the girl? And what if the girl wants all or nothing? Welcome back to Stone River…

Primal Surrender will be releasing to ALL major eBook sites on May 13!

Tuesday Tease…

“…why are you putting so much work into this house if you’re planning on moving back to Austin?”

He followed her out the front door, as she answered, “I love to work with my hands on projects. I always have. My father doesn’t think there’s a life in being an artist or I might have pursued it. This is the first chance I’ve had to buy an old place and really fix it up. If I’m going to be here for a couple of years working on the subdivision project, then I wanted to have a home I could enjoy.”

“I hate to ask this, sweetheart, but what if the project doesn’t happen? Last I heard the planning board and the council weren’t thrilled about the idea.” Mack’s words made her hands sweaty. That was exactly the problem. She needed this project to prove to her dad she could follow in his footsteps and take over the business someday. His approval was too important for this to fail.

“I’m a Schmidt. We don’t deal in what ifs, we make things happen. There is a town hall meeting next week, and I intend on convincing them all this project will bring new residents to the community and with them new funds for roads, schools, and growth.”

Ryker stood on the front stops casually leaning against the railing, grinning. “Good luck with that. This is small town Texas. They don’t have much interest in growth.”

“Then I will make them interested in it. Granite Estates is the best thing that could happen to Stone River,” she said, with and arrogant toss of her head.

Mack cleared his throat, “I beg to differ.” He reached out and grabbed her hand, tugging her into his chest for a kiss. When he released her lips, she was wide eyed and breathing hard. “You’re the best thing to ever happen to Stone River, sweetheart.”

Her eyes darted over to Ryker who was frowning at their embrace, and she felt guilt rush through her. She didn’t want to hurt his feelings or make things awkward. He shifted in place and grumbled, “Before you two start humping in the grass, Claudia needs to eat her sandwich.” For the first time she noticed the white paper bag in his hand. He shook it at her, and asked, “Do you need a plate to eat off, or can you tolerate a napkin just this once, duchess?”


I hope you enjoyed the tease! If you haven’t had a chance to read the first two books in The Surrender Trilogy, pick them up now!
