  • Excerpt: A Crown of Iron and Silver by Hailey Turner

Today I am so pleased to welcome Hailey Turner to Joyfully Jay. Hailey has come to talk to share an exclusive teaser from her upcoming release, A Crown of Iron and Silver (Soulbound #3). Please join me in giving her a big welcome!


Excerpt (NSFW)

“Fuck,” Jono breathed, his hand coming up to touch the side of Patrick’s face. “Love the way you look with my cock in your mouth.”

The cock in question was growing hard against Patrick’s tongue, in his throat, the thickness something he enjoyed. Patrick hummed around Jono’s cock, enjoying the way Jono swore at the sound. Patrick’s own cock was growing heavy between his legs, a gentle build of desire that had him rolling his hips against the bed every now and then, looking for friction.

Patrick pulled back a little, breathing through his nose as he did so, getting a lungful of Jono’s musky scent. He wrapped a hand around the base of Jono’s cock, giving it a squeeze. Jono’s cock twitched at the pressure, the head bumping against the back of Patrick’s throat. He pulled off all the way, licking his way back to Jono’s balls. He tongued at the soft skin between them, tugging on one with his free hand.

Jono’s thighs pressed against his shoulders, hips canting upward. “Bloody tease.”

“You say that like it’s a bad thing.” Patrick propped his chin on Jono’s thigh, casually stroking his cock. “How do you want to come? In my mouth? On my face?”

The way Jono’s eyes darkened told Patrick either option was good. Jono reached for him, tracing his mouth with a careful finger. “Rather come in you.”

It was Patrick’s turn to groan at that, shivering at the possessive look on Jono’s face. “Sure. Like I’d say no to that.”

Patrick didn’t protest when Jono half sat up, reaching for him. Patrick was dragged up Jono’s body until he was lying on the other man, within easy kissing reach. He framed Jono’s face with one hand, mapping out his mouth with an eager tongue. He heard the pillow rustle, then the sound of the lube bottle opening up.

Patrick moaned into Jono’s mouth at the finger that pressed inside him, hips twitching away from the intrusion before pushing back against it. Jono fingered him the same way Patrick had sucked his cock—slow and easy, with a loving attention to detail that left him gasping and wanting more.

He panted against Jono’s mouth, trying to breathe as Jono worked his way up to three fingers, stroking Patrick deep inside. He clutched at Jono’s shoulders, rocking back against the fingers stretching him.

“You want me to ride you?” Patrick asked.

“Don’t want you to do all the work.”

Patrick nipped at his bottom lip. “Getting fucked by you is never work. Pretty sure it’s the opposite of work.”


Never promise a life that isn’t yours to give.

New York City is decked out for the holidays, and Special Agent Patrick Collins is looking forward to a reunion with his old team when he gets assigned a new case. A human child is missing, and the changeling left in her place causes a prominent witch family to demand justice from the fae.

Meanwhile, continued harassment from the New York City god pack forces Jonothon de Vere to formally establish his own with Patrick. Doing so will mean a civil war within the werecreature community—a war they risk losing from the start without alliances. Making bargains with the fae is never wise, but Patrick and Jono have nothing to lose when a fae lord comes asking for their help.

The Summer Lady has been kidnapped from the Seelie Court, and if they can find her, Patrick and Jono will cement an alliance with the fae. But the clues to her disappearance are found in Tír na nÓg, and the Otherworld has never been kind to mortals.

Venturing past the veil, Patrick and Jono risk losing territory, time, and their very lives while searching for answers. Because the Queen of Air and Darkness knows they are coming—and the ruler of the Unseelie Court has an offer for them they can’t possibly refuse.

A Crown of Iron & Silver is a 107k word m/m urban fantasy with a gay romantic subplot and a HFN ending. It is a direct sequel to All Souls Near & Nigh. Reading the first book in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

She’s been writing since she was a young child and enjoys reading almost as much as creating a new story. Hailey loves stories with lots of action, gritty relationships, and an eventual HEA that satisfies the heart.
