Guest Blogger Lori King talks about her new release Primal Surrender


 
Welcome to the release day celebration for the final book in The Surrender Trilogy by Lori King!

from special guest blogger Author Lori King

Primal Surrender is the story of two men who have fallen from great career heights, and a woman who has never wanted for anything until she meets them. They all come face to face with their future, only to find out that in order to have happiness they have to accept their circumstances, and embrace change.
 

 
To celebrate the release of Primal Surrender, I’m giving away a Kindle Paperwhite to one lucky reader!!!

 

First let me tell you about the book!


 
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…

Want to read a little more?

Read an EXCERPT here:
 

“Are you hungry, Claudia?  We can grab a table and order some food.”

She smiled at him, and the pit in his stomach relaxed.  Surely she wouldn’t smile at him like that if she was really uninterested.  “That would be great.  I wasn’t sure if they served food here or not, but I skipped lunch so I’m famished.”

“As long as you’re a meat eater you won’t be disappointed.  Robin’s has the best steaks and burgers for a hundred miles,” Mack answered as he looked over the heads of most everyone in the room to find a table.  Sometimes being abnormally tall was a positive.   “There’s one over by the dart boards.”

“Oh good!  I can kick your ass at darts while we wait for dinner.”  Instead of sounding arrogant, she sounded adorably feisty, and he laughed at her challenge.

“We’ll just see about that, sweetheart.”

Mack’s hand stayed on her waist as she rose and stepped away from the bar, keeping her beer close to protect it from a stray elbow.  His throat caught when she paused before they moved two steps away, “Aren’t you coming, Ryk?”

Ryker looked as surprised as Mack felt, and their eyes met over her head.  It was clear on his face that his younger brother was waiting for his go ahead before interfering in his date, but Mack couldn’t see a way out of it.  If he didn’t invite Ryk along he was going to look like a selfish ass leaving him sitting alone at the bar. 

“Of course he is, he hasn’t had dinner either.”  Mack didn’t wait for Ryk’s response, he just nudged Claudia along sheltering her through the crowded bar until they reached the pocket of empty space around the tiny unoccupied table.  He helped Claudia up onto the tall seat and passed her one of the tiny menus he’d memorized two years ago when he moved to Stone River from Austin.  “Like I said, as long as you aren’t a vegetarian you can’t go wrong.”

She smiled as she opened the menu, “Nope, not a veggie lover, but I’m not a hunter either.  I prefer not to see what my meal looked like before I eat it.  Tonight a big greasy burger will be just perfect.”

Ryker looked a little bit buzzed as he dropped onto one of the other empty stools.  “Greasy burgers and beer?  Not exactly what I would have expected for you city girl.”

Her eyebrow lifted and her lip curled, “Oh?  What did you expect?  Caviar and champagne?  I might have grown up in the city, but I’m still a Texan.”

They managed to get their food pretty quickly, and afterwards they took turns getting their asses kicked by her at darts.  Ryker seemed to be knocking beers back unusually quickly, and his flirtations were becoming more aggressive with Claudia.   Thankfully she didn’t seem to notice the subtle change, laughing and joking with the two of them equally.

Just when Mack was about to ask Claudia to dance again to get some distance from his tipsy brother, the song “Country Girl Shake if For Me” came on and the dance floor turned into lines of people all moving in the same general motion.  Like a shot, Claudia was off her bar stool and dragging both Ryker and Mack to the dance floor with a laugh.  “Come on, boys!  If you’re as country as you say you are then you should be able to line dance.”

Mack fumbled to keep up with the steps as he watched her shimmy and shake in the motions of the dance.  Her curvy frame swayed and jiggled in the most perfectly distracting way he could have imagined.  It was clear by the look of pure primal lust on Ryker’s face he was thinking the same thoughts, and the knowledge disturbed him to the core.  Catching his brother’s eye, Mack gave him a cold look as a warning and then watched in horror as the alcohol fuzzed version of his brother lost his mind.
