Yesterday, I was delighted to see my MM werewolf novel, Midnight in Berlin, had made a best-of-year list. And today I received a box full of author copies. If that’s not all telling me where this week’s snippet should come from, I don’t know what it is! 😉
This is taken from Chapter One, where our narrator Leon stars in a cautionary tale about the perils of hitchhiking, even when the car’s a Porsche and the driver’s really hot:
“Verdammt noch mal!”
It was more of a growl than a curse as he rolled me over and pinned me down again. I was still winded from the impact, but that was okay because I didn’t reckon I could breathe anyhow. He wasn’t the guy who picked me up in the Porsche anymore. My mind flashed crazily to stories I’d read of Peter Stübbe, the werewolf of Bedburg. He’d met a gruesome death four centuries ago, but it looked like he might have left a descendant or two. I was pretty sure I was staring at one of them.
I was really going to die.
Christoph’s face… wasn’t human anymore.

Midnight in Berlin
One bad decision can change your life forever
It’s midnight in Berlin, and drifter Leon is hitchhiking home in the rain, covered in feathers after a wild festival in the city park. He can’t believe his luck when he’s picked up by a hot guy in a Porsche. That is, until he realises his driver is a creature from his worst nightmares—and plans to turn him into one too. He runs, but he can’t escape the werewolf’s bite.
Christoph made one mistake, but he’s paying for it plenty. He took Leon for a rogue werewolf on his way home from a hunt, and by the time he realises the truth it’s too late to do anything but make Leon a monster to save his life. That doesn’t save Christoph from the pack leader’s harsh punishment.
As Leon struggles to cope with his horrifying new reality—and his mixed feelings for the man who bit him—he’s desperate to discover not only what’s happened to Christoph, but the secrets their pack leader is hiding from them all.
Secrets the pack will kill to protect.
