Hi everyone 🙂 As you probably know, Benjamin will be out tomorrow on Extasy Books! You can already order it http://www.extasybooks.com/benjamin/ and you’ll be able to download it a few hours early to read it before everyone else 🙂 The book will be available for preorder on Amazon probably on Friday and will be available for download on the 19th.
So here’s the blurb, the cover, and an excerpt 🙂
Sometimes good things come out of bad situations.
Benjamin was hurt when the pride was attacked, and he’s had enough of the infirmary. He’s been stuck there for a week, and when he decides to make a run for it, the last thing he expects is to meet his mate in Dominic’s office.
Lucas knows about shifters. His best friend Heath is a bear shifter, and they’ve lived together for years. He’s surprised when Heath’s alpha, Dominic Nash, calls him and asks for his help, but before he can do anything, Benjamin stumbles into his life and tells him they belong together.
Both Benjamin and Lucas are happy about being mates, but not everyone is. Benjamin’s family suddenly arrives in Whitedell, and added to the hunter problems the pride is still facing, they’re not making life easy. Will Benjamin and Lucas be able to stay together even when the circumstances aren’t the best?
Benjamin scowled at Keenan, who was stopping him from leaving his room. “I’ve been cooped up in here for a week.”
Keenan crossed his arms on his chest. “You’re not going anywhere until Jared comes by and tells me I can let you go.”
Benjamin threw his hands in the air. “What the fuck is it with you guys?”
“We don’t want you to get hurt again.”
“I’m fine. I’ve spent a week in the infirmary and a week lazing around in my bed. Noem came by the other day and finished healing the last wound. I can take a walk in the hallway.”
“Of course you can. When Jared says so.”
“I hate you.”
Keenan beamed. “I love you too, Benji.”
“Don’t call me Benji. I hate it.”
“How about Ben, then?”
The only person who called Benjamin Ben to his face was Lucas, and Benjamin wanted to keep it that way, but maybe if he gave in Keenan would let him go. “Fine, you can call me Ben.”
Keenan’s smile grew and Benjamin tried to pass by him, but he didn’t budge. “Nope.”
“Oh, come on!”
Benjamin gave up and went to sit on his bed. He was starting to hate the thing as much as he’d hated his room in the infirmary. He’d been happy to escape the infirmary a week before, but he hadn’t realized he was only trading one cell for another. He hadn’t seen the outside of his room ever since Lucas had carried him there, and while he wasn’t one to go out much, an entire week sequestered in a room was weighing on him.
“Who named you guard dog anyway?”
Keenan seemed delighted by being called a guard dog, and Benjamin shook his head. Some people living in the mansion were weird, weirder than Benjamin was used to. “No one. I just happened to see Jared earlier and he told me he’d be coming by your room sometime today to check on you.”
“And you decided you needed to check on me too?”
“Well, if your attempted escape from the infirmary was any indication, I knew you’d try to leave your room before you’re ready.”
“But I am ready. Seriously. It doesn’t even hurt anymore.”
Keenan waved Benjamin’s words away. “Jared is the doctor, not you.”
“The body is mine, though. I think I know better than anyone if I feel pain or not.”
“Yeah, well, like last week showed us, you don’t really take pain into consideration when you decide to do something.”
Benjamin flopped on his back. There was obviously no way for him to leave. Where was Lucas when he needed him? He’d be able to swat Keenan aside like the annoying fly he was and free Benjamin.
Keenan’s phone rang and he answered, keeping his gaze on Benjamin as if he thought Benjamin was going to attempt something while he was on the phone. It was tempting, but Keenan was still standing in front of the door, cutting off the only way out Benjamin had.
“Okay, I’ll bring him.”
Benjamin looked at Keenan, wondering who he was talking to. Keenan hung up and grinned. “Jared asked if you were able to go down to the infirmary.”
Benjamin was up before Keenan could finish the sentence. “Let’s go.”
