Happy Sunday! Here are seven lines from my current WIP, the dark M/M Viking romance TORN AVENGER.
What was going to happen to Roeland? The combination of heavy labor and bad food and hygiene conditions could be fatal, but not a single soul would understand Alv’s qualms about letting a murderer rot. The thought of keeping him as a personal thrall had struck, but Alv already had one and found no plausible excuse to take two.
Besides, he couldn’t imagine giving Roeland orders. The man was far too “equal” to work for him. Too noble, too proud, too headstrong. Supremely valiant, with the courage of a warrior when he watched Alv raise the sword and cut his cheek!
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.
