“Absolutely loved this book. The author has given us a story full of great characters and world building that you cannot help but feel a part of. I could not put this book down and am waiting not so patiently for a follow up. There is intrigue, spice and sometimes tension. All in all a great read that will have you thinking of our heroes even when not reading. I wish I could give it more stars.”
– Angela Thomas
She is the key to saving the world, and his mission is to save her.

I am the favored prisoner, a traitor to my cause, working to find a way out of the camp and deliver my research to the Resistance.

She is my reward, naked, blindfolded, and broken. And we aren’t permitted to speak.

She is mine.

I knew it the first night in the stocks when my arms closed around her and her trembling eased. And the second night when she willingly gave me pleasure and smiled. She lit up the bunkers with heaven’s light. And I will do whatever it takes to save my Angel from the camp, her captor, and find her abducted children. I will never let her go.

Resistant is the first book in an interconnected dystopian dark romance series.
