Excerpt:

Jack daydreamed about the warm beaches of Italy and Greece, projecting their image over the endless snow outside. When he and Roux boarded the train in Transylvania, he’d thought it wouldn’t be an issue to experience a tough winter once more, since they were always white and cold where he was from. But the Siberian winter was nothing like the coziness of the cold months back home. It was bitingly tough, reaching for them through the tiniest gaps.

Jack was too busy to think about it much at first, fascinated by the different way people dressed out here, by their food, and the fact that they mixed their tea with jam, but the farther east they traveled, the less people there were, until he spent endless hours watching barren landscapes untouched by men.

In the first days of their journey, they’d met other venators heading the same way, but as the snow became thicker, familiar faces were replaced by those of locals. He didn’t mind. Many venators were out for their own glory and were difficult to work with, but it was the attitude some displayed toward Roux that made Jack resent the notion of having to travel together.

Sadly, things weren’t rosy between Jack and Roux either.

‘Civil’ would’ve been the best way to describe the atmosphere between them, but no matter how much they didn’t talk about what had happened in Transylvania, there was no denying that it had in fact happened. Jack had slept with Roux, loved every second of their closeness, and without his defenses up, Roux had admitted he liked Jack.

So Jack would just trudge on and try to gradually chip at the chat’s icy attitude until another opportunity arose to prove his worth as a prospective lover, because now that he’d been inside Roux’s tight body, there was no going back. He kept fantasizing about the long tail tightening around his cock, the large, tempting eyes looking at him over Roux’s shoulder, about the touch of soft fur on skin.

Somehow, someday, he would capture Roux’s heart.

Hopefully, sooner rather than later.

It was dreadfully dark when their train rolled into the Krasnoyarsk station, but despite the icy air assaulting Jack’s face from the moment he got off, he was glad to see lights and people.

Roux gasped, and his lips parted, releasing vapor. He stared forward with eyes wide and he was so pretty Jack couldn’t take his eyes off.

“Is that a yeti?” Roux whispered, and only then Jack’s brain snapped out of his infatuation coma.

A giant in furs stood by the small bar at the platform. Too big to fit through the narrow doors, he accepted a steaming mug through the window. Black, leathery fingers looked like gloves, but when the creature faced Jack and rose to his entire height, one glance at its face was enough to conclude it was not human.

“I-I think so,” Jack whispered, wondering if being stared at would annoy the giant, but he couldn’t look away, nonetheless.

“A specimen for your memoir?” Roux asked with a smirk.

It was the first time Roux had mentioned the topic since the Transylvania fiasco, and it made Jack’s heart skip a beat to hear that Roux was able to find humor in it. Even if Jack was the butt of the joke.

Jack cleared his throat, noticing the glimmer of beads at the trim of the yeti’s clothes, and when the creature walked past them, the slenderness of its body was noticeable under the fur. “I think it might be a woman,” he said and rubbed his hands together, because they were freezing despite the gloves.
