Can two men let go of the past in order to find their future together?

Men of Honor, Book 3

When helo pilot Glen Rhodes flies Navy SEALs into the most dangerous places on earth, he has nerves of steel. Since his trusted Dom’s death three years ago, though, the thought of submitting makes him panic.

Determined to move on and long past ready to release the adrenaline rush from his job, Glen returns to home ground—and to the bar he hasn’t had the heart to enter for three long years. There, he meets a man who seems to fit naturally into the void.

Derek Mann has suffered his own losses, and he isn’t looking for permanent. Easy conquests don’t interest him, either. One look at Glen’s proud military bearing and sad eyes tells him that he has a challenge on his hands. And that winning Glen’s trust will unleash something wild and beautiful.

The plan is to tread lightly. But from the first touch of skin on skin, there’s no holding back…except when it comes to their deepest emotions. A Christmas Eve crisis pushes them both to their limits, leaving them no choice but to let go of the past…or let it pull them apart.

Warning: Contains rough language, rougher sex and warriors who fall hard for each other.


This is much shorter than the previous two books in the series and introduces us to Glen and Derek who are both widowed and looking for something.

Glen has been drifting since the death of his previous Dom. His family turned their backs on him when they learnt of his kinky lifestyle. He lives his life getting high from a dangerous job but is desperate for someone to bind him and be there for him. Glen is looking for safety.

Derek lost his last sub in a car crash after he stormed away after an arguement and has been lonely and laden with guilt ever since. Adored by his family he has played with a few subs but never found anyone to challenge him or make him want to stay around.

Derek and Glen seemed a pretty good fit from the start and although both had their hang-ups they worked through any issues without too much angst. The biggest hurdles seemed to be Glen’s fear of family and Derek’s fear of being living up to John, Glen’s previous Dom.

For two men who had lost the love from their lives this may be the ideal second chance.
