Mending the Rift
by Chris T. Kat
Blurb: In a future where man’s ability to reproduce is severely compromised, humanity has adapted to survive. Breeders—male and female—have become precious commodities, and they are strictly guarded and subject to limitations.
Luca Walker is a breeder. Though he knows what’s expected of him as the youngest son of the Northern Confederacy’s Vice President, he’s held out against the pressures of an arranged marriage because he longs to marry for love, not duty. But he’s been promised to Colonel Liam Smith and there’s little he can do about it, no matter that Luca is secretly in love with his bodyguard, Marcus Gray.
When Luca finds himself pregnant with Marcus’s baby, Smith is furious and vows to take what is his—by force, if necessary. Now Luca must fight for his life and the life of his unborn child… as well as the love of Marcus and the happily ever after he’s always dreamed of.
Mending the Rift is scheduled to release March 14, 2016!
And the moment you’ve been waiting for! Mending the Rift cover reveal…
Exclusive Excerpt from Mending the Rift
“Thanks so much for your concern,” Luca spat out.
Marcus’s scruffy cheek pressed against Luca’s equally unshaven one. A moment later, soft but firm lips pressed a kiss to the left corner of his mouth.
Luca gasped and clutched the arm holding him. “Marcus….”
“You’ll be all right, Luca. Smith is a good man, and he’ll treat you well.”
“You’re a good man too,” Luca replied, past caring how pathetic he sounded.
Marcus exhaled before he said in a voice that brooked no further argument, “This discussion is closed. There’s a marriage agreement between the two of you.”
“Because I had no other choice!”
“Most breeders don’t have a choice in the matter. You’ve been lucky your father is who he is and that there’s a long tradition of strong breeders in your family. Your dad is one of Earth’s most renowned scientists, and he’s a breeder too, therefore their opinion matters. Otherwise you’d have been married off at twenty, you know that. You’ve been prepared your whole life, so why are you freaking out now?” Marcus pulled Luca away from the opening.
“I want what my father and my dad have,” Luca answered. Not to mention that he wanted Marcus, not anyone else.
“They got lucky,” Marcus replied. “At your age, your dad had already given birth to three babies.”
Luca tipped his head back so it rested on Marcus’s shoulder. “I’m scared.”
He was scared of the things to come: to leave his family and start one of his own. He’d been the baby of the family, and he’d taken advantage of that fact. His parents had made it easy for him, since they knew he’d be their last child. That he looked a lot like his dad probably helped a great deal in convincing his father of anything he wanted as well. And his dad? His dad was his dad; everyone loved him, much as he liked to drive everyone up the wall with his antics.
Luca closed his eyes when Marcus gave him a gentle hug. He clung tightly to Marcus, relishing his warmth and strength.
