Alpha Male Diner: Kane (immortal warrior) by Gena Showalter

I sat down with a few of my closest friends (Kresley Cole, Jill Monroe and Roxanne St. Claire) to discuss the perfect recipe for Kane, the hero of The Darkest Craving. Here’s what we came up with:

Kane (Immortal Warrior)
recipe created by Gena Showalter

The Darkest Craving (Lords of the Underworld #10)

250 pounds of Grade A filet (zero fat)

Marinate overnight in bad attitude for flavor
Tenderize by pounding the meat (feel free to use your nails)
Season with testosterone and alpha-tendencies
Add a smidgen of sugar
A dash of cockiness
A pinch of pride
A heap of cunning
Braise with smoldering sexiness
Sizzle over high heat till scorching (goal: melt in your mouth delicious)

Presentation: serve shirtless, and in black leather.

Taste Test

His skin prickled, and maybe he moved. Maybe he spoke. Her gaze lifted to meet his. Her lips parted on a startled exhalation. Could she see the rawness of his need?

“Kane.” A breathy entreaty.

In that moment, the cry of the demon ceased to matter. The past faded, leaving only the present…the future, and the unstoppable tide of the pleasure to come. Every bone vibrated. He needed to get inside her. Here. Now.

It would be agony.

It would be ecstasy.

Tension coiled low in his gut, only to spring apart and jolt him into a stand. “Leave us,” he said, his voice a broken rasp.

No questions. No protests. The two seamstresses flittered from the room, shutting the door behind them.

The teapot shattered on the tray, dark liquid spilling everywhere. Defeat’s newest attempt to deter him.

Tink didn't seem to notice, was too busy watching him. “I-is something wrong?”

Silent, he stalked toward her. A predator with a purpose. He was done resisting. Done thinking about all the reasons why not. Today, he was taking something.

Perhaps sensing the dark, greedy urges driving him, she straightened with a snap. 

Her breathing quickened. “Kane,” she said.

“Tell me to stop.” He stood a mere heartbeat away, their gazes locked together, trapped. Nothing else would halt the madness.

“I…I can’t.”

The Darkest Craving
Release Date: July 30, 2013
Having endured weeks of torture in the bowels of hell, Kane wants nothing to do with his beautiful rescuer, Josephina Aisling. The half-Fae female threatens to awaken the demon of Disaster inside him—a beast he’s determined to kill, no matter the price.

Josephina is hunted by a brutal enemy—her royal family—and Kane is her only source of protection. He’s also the only male to ever set her aflame, and even he succumbs to the heat. But as they navigate the treacherous world of the Fae, their love might just tear them apart..
