Cover Reveal & Giveaway ~ Mending the Rift by Chris T Kat

Author Name: Chris T. Kat
Book Name: Mending the Rift
Release Date: March 14, 2016


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.

Excerpt from Chapter Two:

Marcus rappelled off and stepped onto the ground with a crunch of his boots. Pointing at the

opening with the askew ladder, he asked, “Don’t tell me you seriously considered climbing down this


Luca shrugged. “I’d have preferred spontaneous levitation, but it didn’t happen.”

He yelped when Marcus put an arm around his torso and lifted him to his feet, as if he weighed

nothing. “Hey!”

Marcus silenced him with a glare, and Luca gritted his teeth while Marcus thumped dust off his

clothes. “Your father is livid.”

Luca swallowed. He’d expected worried, maybe a bit mad, but livid? His father never got furious

at him. Not for long, anyway. Being the baby of the family had its perks. “Why?”

“Why? Seriously, Luca, you have to ask why?” Marcus patted Luca’s behind more firmly than

was strictly necessary.

Luca shifted, trying to get away from Marcus’s arm. When that didn’t help, he slapped Marcus’s

hands away and stepped aside. He couldn’t think when he was so close to Marcus—when the man

touched him, he sent shivers up and down his spine. He ignored the glower Marcus directed at him. “Yes,

seriously. He knows I don’t want to marry Smith. I don’t want anything to do with all that shit. I want to

decide what I’m going to do with my life.”

Marcus shook his head. “Smith is a good man. My brother Kyle worked for him. He said he

always treated his people well. If you want I could try to get Kyle on the phone so you can talk to him.

That is, if I can get a hold on him. Trust me, you’ll be in good hands.”

“You don’t get it! I don’t want to be in good hands!”

“No?” Marcus raised an eyebrow.

Luca huffed, a small smile forming on his lips. “Well, yes, of course I want to be in good hands.

But I want someone to love me, and not just for my ability to become pregnant. I want… you.”

Luca’s heart thundered in his rib cage. There, he’d said it. The ball was in Marcus’s court. Sure, it

had only been one night, and Marcus’s reaction afterward hadn’t been promising, but maybe he’d just

been scared? Maybe he feared to lose his job? Nonetheless, there was more going on between them, and

they both knew it. That one night had just been the last logical step. Luca regretted nothing.

For a moment Marcus seemed startled, and there was a softness in his eyes that was solely

reserved for Luca. The softness vanished too quickly for Luca’s liking.

Instead, Luca was greeted with Marcus’s usual, scrutinizing gaze. “You don’t want me, and you

better never mention this again. It was a mistake. Now get it out of your head and be a good boy.”
