Cardeno C: Blue Mountain Progressive Excerpt
Blue Mountain by Cardeno C. Progressive Excerpt Mini-Blog Tour on release day, November 21
Exiled by his pack as a teen, Omega wolf Simon Moorehead learns to bury his gentle nature in the interest of survival. When a hulking, rough-faced Alpha catches Simon on pack territory, he tries to escape what he’s sure will be imminent death. But instead of killing him, the Alpha takes Simon home.
A man of action, Mitch Grant uproots his life to support his brother in leading the Blue Mountain pack. Mitch lives on the periphery, quietly protecting everyone, but always alone. A mate is a dream come true for Mitch, and he won’t let little things like Simon’s rejections, attacks, and insults get in their way. With patience, seduction, and genuine care, Mitch will ride out the storm while Simon slays his own ghosts and Mitch’s loneliness.
He nodded again.
“And that means you’re going to give me food and keep me alive so you can hurt me and lick my blood?”
Mitch reared back at the accusation, landing on his backside. “No!”
“No?” The Omega arched his eyebrows.
“I wasn’t licking your blood. I was healing you.”
“From the wounds you made?”
Unsure how to respond, Mitch blinked and stared.
“You tied me with the rope,” he clarified unnecessarily.
“Only because you were trying to leave.”
“Yes.” The Omega nodded. “I still want to leave.” He looked into Mitch’s eyes, his expression firm, strong, admirable. “If you truly don’t want to hurt me or eat me, then let me go.”
Mitch ached soul deep. “You still want to leave?”
“Yes.” The man’s tone indicated he thought the question was stupid. “You brought me here against my will.”
“You were unconscious. You needed help.” Mitch gulped. “I helped you.”
“Well, I’m conscious now.” He sat up, keeping the blanket wrapped around himself, and gestured to his body. “I’m all healed except for these.” He held up his wrists. “But they’ll be better soon and I can be out of your territory. Are you going to let me go, Alpha?”
