In The Ring
The biggest fight of his life isn’t . . . In the Ring.
The bright lights. The roaring crowd. The chance at a championship belt. The not-so-little secret Liam Shaughnessy—the Bonny Bruiser—is fighting to keep tucked far away.
Liam got the pussy pounded out of him on the mean streets of Cin-city—the other Sin City. The oldest in a Catholic clan where his da never pulled any punches, he went from geek boy to the golden boy of the boxing world care of his fists. Liam’s on the fast track to having it all . . . all except the one man he wants.
Michael Fairweather makes pretending to be hetero goddamn difficult for Liam. The man is blond and beautiful and just so happens to be Liam’s trainer. With a penchant for doing shirtless yoga, giving midnight massages to loosen Liam’s muscles, and sometimes even taking it out in the ring with him. To say Liam has porn-style fantasies about Michael is an understatement.
Michael’s out and proud. Liam’s only proud of what he can do in the ring. He can’t risk his career, least of all for someone unavailable. Michael has a lover. Liam has the lies he lives every day. And when his money-grubbing manager gets involved as the title win approaches, Liam doesn’t know what hit him.
Fight to win. Fight with honor. It won’t be easy, but that’s okay. Nothing worth fighting for ever is.

Under His Guard
(Don’t Tell 03)
Rebel soldier Darke lost his lover during the early stages of the InterNations war. Only the flirtatious attentions of the gorgeous Leon Cheramie brought him back from heartbreak and grief. Unwilling to get attached again, Darke has fought their undeniable attraction to one another. But when Leon’s life is threatened, Darke cannot deny what’s been brewing between them.
After escaping certain death at the hands of the enemy, the brave and determined Leon has proven himself capable of fighting in the war. The only thing he hasn’t been able to do is capture the heart of the fearless warrior Darke. When a huge victory is won for the revolutionaries, Darke and Leon finally give in to their feelings for one another.
But the celebration is short-lived when Leon is infected with a deadly virus. He’s a human time bomb set to plague the entire rebel population. Now, the final endgame of the war is pitted against the rebels’ race to find a cure before Leon becomes a full-blown carrier and Darke loses the man who managed to win his love and bring him back to life.
Blurb: In the dystopian future, two men discover attraction isn’t just dangerous, it’s deadly.
It is the year 2070. Generations ago, the world was annihilated by catastrophic environmental events. The survivors were driven to live in big city centers ruled by the Company. To rebuild the world’s population, the oppressive Company had one rule: all homosexuals must be exterminated.
Commander Caspar Cannon has a stellar military reputation—and a life-threatening secret. When a revolution rips through the territories, Cannon is ordered to escort Company executive Nathaniel Rice to a secure location. For months, the commander has harbored illicit desire for Rice, knowing he cannot act on his attraction. Privileged, polished, and groomed to one day take over the Company, Rice is drawn to the rugged, military man. Yet Rice has his own mysterious agenda, and he knows their love can be as dangerous as the wasteland they must traverse.
Now leaving the besieged city behind, the two men embark on a journey that becomes a minefield of sabotage, betrayal—and forbidden passion. But when danger catches up to them, can Cannon trust the secretive man who holds his heart—and his fate?
Review: ARC copy supplied through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
“Look, Blondie. I’m not asking you to bottom, just to navigate.”
“Jesus, Caspar. I’m not asking you to top me, just to talk.”
This is the relationship as a whole between our two ML, Caspar (Big Boy) and Nate (Blondie). They talk to each other like they talk to no one else; they have a dry, witty banter back and forth that will make you chuckle; they get on each other’s nerves like no other and they love each other fiercely.
Caspar Cannon is a Commander in the new world army that makes up the government in the world Warren has created. Sexual deviant behavior is forbidden and punishable by death, this most definitely includes homosexuality. Caspar has always known that “tits didn’t do it for him” but his safety net is his career in Alpha Company, so he hides his secret well. Stolen moments in an underground club are his only outlet to his hidden desires, this is where he first see’s Blondie. Sexy, tall with blonde shoulder length hair, and deep blue eyes, Blondie stirs something inside Caspar that he tries to keep hidden.
Nathaniel Rice is a technical genius, a company executive and the son of a very powerful person. When rebels breech Alpha, Caspar is charged with escorting Nate to safety, imagine his surprise when they meet and he comes face to face with the one man he wants more than anything, Blondie. Thrust together by circumstance, Caspar and Nate begin a dangerous affair that could cost them both their lives if discovered.
As the story progresses both men open up more to each other every day, begin to trust one another, and have a LOT of smoking hot sex in tents and against various trees as well as the hood of a truck! Nathaniel falls hard and quick, but Caspar is not so easily trusting. He fears that if he opens up and lets Nate in he’ll be hurt, or worse killed for his indiscretions. A group of rebels that call themselves the Freelanders offer protection and solace for the lovers on the run, and not only do they not care about their relationship, they welcome it.
Both men still hold on to a deep secret though, secrets that could destroy their yet still fragile relationship. And when a betrayal from someone they thought they could trust lands Nate back within his father’s grasp and Caspar in a cell, will their love survive the trial?
In His Command is a dark and sexy story with several twists and turns along the way. The dystopian world that Warren has created is eerily believable and strategically realistic. Caspar and Nate are protective, loyal, and strong not only for each other, but for the people they call family and friends as well. Strong secondary characters round out the cast and provide a stellar story about a world that is based on homophobia and fear, and how two men that love each other change everything, including each other.
Romance, mystery, suspense and some oh my good god sex make this novel a must read for fans of the genre!
