Happy Sunday! Here are seven lines from the first chapter of my work in progress, the dark M/M Viking historical romance TORN AVENGER.
Outside, someone shouted, “A boat is coming!” Quick footfalls sounded on the earth path that passed Alv’s house.
A boat? It had to be his older brother Joar, returning from war. Finally!
Hedin stretched and emitted a lazy moan. “What’s going on?”
Alv dislocated from him and immediately regretted his lover’s bodily warmth. “Joar is back. I think.” He gave Hedin a quick kiss on the corner of his mouth, sat on the side of the mattress, and collected his clothes.
“You care more about him than about me,” Hedin teased with a grin.
“Pfft.” Alv mock-slapped his arm. “You know well there is only man in my life, and that’s you.”
I can’t reveal the cover quite yet, but this is what Alv looks like:
As the second son of a Viking earl, Alv Gunnulfsen wasn’t meant to inherit a throne or avenge a murder. But when his brother is slain during a raid and their father dies of grief, Alv is expected to take command and claim the killer’s death. In a world of ruthless retaliation and social codes, he must also maneuver cleverly to protect a troublesome secret: his attraction for men.
Roeland van Dijk, a wealthy Dutch merchant settled in Norway, has done the unthinkable to protect his family — hacked off the head of a Viking rapist. The wrath of the blond savages will cost him his freedom, and possibly his own head… Unless he’s willing to accept the love of another man.
