Publisher's Summary

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, it 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.

Defiance is not only a wonderful addition to the beloved Masters of the Shadowlands series but also a great introduction to the guys from the upcoming Sons of the Survivalist series.

This is a novella

I loved the book, but it was very short. Just over 3 hours. Be forewarned.

Love Master Z

This was a great short to usher into the next series.

Master Z’s life is threatened, Jessica has a secret and a good friend of Master Z is dead. To the average person, this is a stressful time, but for Master Z and the help of four mountain men, he will capture the would be killer and discipline his submissive/ wife and regain control of his life all in one shot.

I love any story that has Master Z. I love him and the narrator who does him justice.

Great intro for the stories set in Alaska.

... failed to capture me

I didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the series so far. This book is written in a different way that wasn't provocative enough. I missed Shadowlands. I don't think this book was necessary. Sorry.

Fantastic

The story is a nice lead in to the new series. Looking forward to learn more about the new characters! The performance was on point as always with those two wonderful narrators.

Another addition ti tbe library

It was good to read about an expanded world outside the Shadowlands learning about important people in Master Z's past.
Overall, though, the tones of the story felt as it it was told from an emotional distance. Maybe it will take a bit to get to know the new characters but even the familiar ones didnt feel that engaging.
Mr. Levine did his usual admirable job of various accents and characters. Ms. DeWard continues to make femalecharacters sound like middle school girls.

Awesome crossover

Defiance is a fun novella connecting three of Cherise Sinclair’s series together.
On the one hand we have Master Z and Jessica representing The Masters of the Shadowlands, on the other hand we have Mako’s sons AKA The Sons of the Survivalist. Mix in DeVries from Dark Haven and we have an interesting group of characters.
The story (mind you it is a novella and shortish) centers around Master Z and a stalker which adds a bit of suspense. It also shows the D/s relationship between Z and Jessica as the progress from a couple into a family.

Shadowlands and Dark Haven crossover!

I get really excited when I see/hear about crossovers! I was really excited when I heard a few name drops and some of the characters from Dark Haven in this book! I mean Cherise is building an ideal world of Masters! Lol. So fun to listen to, even if it was so short. I wish it was a bit longer. So my next dive in to this building world is to the sons of the survivalist series. Can’t wait. It was nice to meet all of them in this book.

Sadly lacking ...

This book is just a conduit to introduce a new set of characters. The storyline was lacklustre and didn’t have the complexity of writing that I expect from Cherise Sinclair. Very disappointed.
