Exclusive Excerpt – Tanner discusses his “deal” with Alex
“You know, at the rate you’re going, you’re never gonna make it into heaven with all this blackmailing shit.”
Tanner grinned. He just sat there and fucking grinned at him. “Why ever would I want to go to heaven, when hell is so much more fun? I will take you there myself, fire mage, and trust me when I say it’ll be all you can think about. That, and the inferno that surrounds us. Understand what it is I’m saying—I hold your fate in my hands, and I will hunt you to the ends of this earth should you ever betray me. This, incidentally, is an offer you cannot possibly refuse.”
“You, too, always had a way with words, old man.” Alex threw his head back and stared up at the coffered ceiling, attempting to pull his thoughts together.
The chandelier above flickered vibrantly, straining Alex’s eyes. Yet being so close to Tanner, so near to him in such a small confinement for the first time in over a decade, Alex could think of nothing other than their close proximity. It took all he had to hold his head high and blow a sigh of feigned annoyance.
“As if I’d betray you anyway.” He looked the alpha square in the eyes; his black irises had turned an unnatural shade of violet. “I’ve obviously too much to lose, and don’t really have a choice in the matter, do I?” You fucking douchebag!
Tanner smirked and stood up from the chair. He adjusted his left cufflink as he walked over to Alex—who was glued to the sofa, deliberately stock still. He suddenly felt like prey separated from the herd, and now the predator was gaining on him. Alex took a sharp intake of breath and looked his former lover in the eyes. Tanner smiled at him again; it was all he ever seemed to do nowadays—smiling at Alex with that usual, contemptuous gaze flitting over his body and his smug expression drinking everything in like he were calculating its worth.
Tanner leant onto the sofa and stuck his arms over Alex’s shoulders, pinning him in. One of his muscular legs slipped between Alex’s thighs, rubbing against his cock as the alpha pressed inward. It’d been so long since Alex had lain on Tanner’s sofa like that, and in the same room they had occupied so many years ago. He’d forgotten how sticky the leather felt against his burning hot flesh, how it seemed to mould around his body whenever he and Tanner were on top of it.
Alex gulped, his temperature sky-rocketing, and beads of perspiration broke out on his brow while his heartbeat hammered against his ribcage. He was turned on as fuck.
“Such an expression,” Tanner whispered hoarsely, “burning in those eyes. Are you sure the Star Café is the only thing worth losing?”
Book #2 – Within These Depths
Tannerian Wulfric is a leader—a strong alpha who bows to no-one, especially those who try to undermine his authority.
When an opportunity arises, he grabs it with both hands and lets nothing get in his way. Trouble is, his brother has been caught in the crossfire of glorious retribution, and Tanner is in need of assistance.
For many years, Alex Jonas has lived his life in peace. But when fate lands him in the hands of his ex-lover and alpha, he finds himself in the centre of a feud he never knew existed, and must immerse himself in ways he had never imagined. One chance encounter, one night, and everything comes crashing down around him. Alex must fight for his life while Tanner fights for one thing and one thing only—vengeance, which has never tasted sweeter.
Can Tanner avenge his family’s death without spilling more blood? Or will his inner demon tear apart everything he has worked for, and lose the man who owns his heart?
Within These Depths BLURB
Tanner is so close to his revenge that he can almost taste it. With an unusual brand of negotiation skills under his belt, he has everything he needs. Now all that stands between him and destroying Elijah Ravenhill is a dangerous mission into the depths of Hell. Accompanied by his guides, he will enter where loyalties and souls are tested, and few ever return.
Newly mated Alex just wants to keep his loved ones safe. In the sprawling grandeur of Wulfric Manor, he finally has his family under one roof, even if it may only be temporary, and his dreams of having something normal seem to be within reach. Yet what’s normal for the wolf is torture for the prey, and chaos descends on Alex with one mysterious phone call.
Can Alex have all he ever dreamed of without sacrificing his life? Will Tanner put an end to Elijah once and for all, or will his revenge go up in smoke within the fires of hell itself?
Warning: Within These Depths is the highly anticipated sequel to Broken in Silence: Demons and Wolves Series, and things are really heating up. This story is NOT a typical romance and it’s not intended for those who seek a HEA. It cannot be read as a standalone.
Katze Snow never learned when to shut up. Food and coffee are what encourage Katze to function in a semi-normal, sort of socially acceptable way. Doses of sarcasm and sass are what she lives for, and her wolf, Kiba, who is Katze’s little furbaby. She’s been writing since she was a child, but finally published her debut novel, Alpha’s Bane, in Autumn 2016.
While Katze also writes MF, MM is where her heart truly lies. Her writing is dark, gritty, and takes satire to a whole new level. Come and join her! But be warned: Katze likes her men dark, twisted and all kinds of messed up, and she hopes you do too.
When Katze’s not writing, she’s working for a top secret, underground organisation, or taming wolves. (Check out her furbaby, Kiba!)
