Smut Slot: The Silver Cage

By Mathilde Madden

And so here we are. Book 3. I really did write three books in a year and on 7th February readers in the UK will be able to buy papery proof.


That cover image looks kind of familiar. I’m sure I’ve seen him before. In a back pain ad. And my hero Alfie who after strutting around like a rakish man-slut for two books now spends this last one having a truly miserable time. And from something far worse than the awful bout of back pain he's having on the cover.

Publishing is a funny business – but never funnier than when you have to write the teaser extract for the back cover before you have written a word of the book. But somehow I got an image of Alfie chained up in a cage with one of his hands broken and his relentlessly miserable whole-book-spent-in-a-cage went from there.

It was Madelynne Ellis who suggested that Alfie and his wayward, stroppy, wolf cub Leon should get tied together. And so it came to pass in this extract where both my alpha werewolves are being held prisoner by the powerful female werewolf The Divine and wicked witch Sabrina

Alfie's wrists were still cuffed behind his back. His cock and nipples were both hard. Hot and tight. He wasn't sure why. When The Divine had Leon trussed she used Alfie to make him stand up. 'Well,' she said, 'I had thought that there was no need to confine you. I thought your loyalty would keep you close to your sire. Obviously that is not the case.'

'Why should I stay here with him,' Leon snarled, low. 'He doesn't care about me.'

'I thought you were proud of what a true wolf you were, Leon,' said Sabrina, pushing away from the wall she was leaning on it and coming close. 'That's how it works. He doesn't care about you – but you care about nothing but him. Even my magic hold over you just isn't strong enough to fight the way you feel about him. It's more than just thrall isn't it, Leon. Does he know?'


And the way Sabrina was smiling. Alfie knew. Knew she knew.


'Fuck off,' Leon said.


'He's in love with me,' Alfie said slowly. 'And yes, I know.'

'Tell him to come into the cage, Alfie,' said The Divine. 'Tell him to come into the cage and lie with you.'


Leon’s eyes went saucer-wide.

Alfie told Leon what to do and he did it.

As Leon's body shifted in the straw next to Alfie's, Alfie saw the fear in Leon's eyes.

The Divine came up close behind them. ‘Well,’ she muttered as she started to tie Leon's ankles to Alfie's, ‘it would seem you are right, Sab. This one is already hard for his sire. And he’s disgusted by it.’ She reached up and chucked Leon under the chin. He tried hopelessly to turn away. ‘You’re disgusted by your own desire, aren’t you cub?’


Leon said nothing. He didn’t meet Alfie’s eye as The Divine then bound them at the knees. She wound more rope around their chests.
Leon was a little shorter than Alfie. Only a little. Alfie tried to look into Leon's eyes. He tried to show him something from his sire that would be soothing.

Behind The Divine, Sabrina was laughing. 'Make sure their cocks are close together. Let that pup show his sire how he really feels. It's the only way my magic wouldn't have held him. Filthy cub in love with his wolf-daddy.'


Leon snarled and struggled, but that just made his crotch rub against Alfie's. Alfie could see it in his eyes – he was trying so desperately not to get any harder.


Alfie looked past him at The Divine. 'Move against him,' she said.
Alfie pumped his hips.

Leon's cock was obvious. Hard and heavy. Grinding against Alfie's which was already still hard from waking. There was a single layer of denim between then. Leon's jeans. Alfie was still – as always – naked.


'So what now?' The Divine said. She was looking at Sabrina.


'Oh, let's just leave them like that a while. Nice lesson for that pup to give him no choice but to let his sire know just how he feels.'


The Divine said, 'Sounds good to me. And we need to talk anyway. We have things to plan.'

The two women left the cellar, without a backward glance.

I'm totally buzzed by having JUST finished submitting my new book to Black Lace. Jezus Mat, how the *&!*
did you write three freakin' novels in one year. It defies my imagination.

The Silver Series all sounds good to me. I wonder, are we looking at another Golden Cock award? You know, Mat, two would make might fine bookends for a collection of your work.

Must go, must rest, great post.

Madelynne Ellis said...

I've waited a long time for this :-) Must remember to send you more random suggestion. Looking forward to reading the finale.

Janine Ashbless said...

I've no idea how you managed to write 3 novels in a year Mat, but at least you were rewarded with that cover - I mean, big naked bloke flashing his armpit - You must like it really, heh?

Mathilde Madden said...

Heh. I do like that cover. I like all my covers for werewolves. Men! On Covers! Is a revolution.

The guy on Silver Cage does look like he needs some painkillers though!

Janine Ashbless said...

Loved the m/m extract btw. Oh, how shame can be used for erotic charge...

Madelynne Ellis said...

I just have a weakness for Leon.

And yeah, to men on covers!

Mathilde Madden said...

Well just for you, I've put a bit more Leon over at my blog

Leon's baddest moment

Deanna Ashford said...

It looks great. Three books in a year you busy lady - bet all the hard work was worth it.

kristina lloyd said...

Oh, what a dirty, dirty excerpt. So cruel! I love it.

A trilogy in itself is an amazing achievement but to write it in a year is superhumantotallyfuckingbonkers.

And it's such a treat for readers. It only really struck me how much of a treat when I was nearing the end of book 1 and thinking, Oh but I don't want it to end. And then, duh, I realised it didn't! I love the story, the characters, the energy, the humour, the suffering, Alfie's great big muscles and, oh, those cock-crazed witches. Fabulous!

And now I'll go check out Leon's badness.

Wow. All I can do is drool when I read juicy/dirty prose like that. No one does werewolves like you, Mat. And I can't get over your three-books-in-a-year achievement. I'm lucky if I can crank out three paragraphs in a week. Congratulations!

Kate Pearce said...

Loved the excerpt, dirty forbidden love is such a turn-on isn't it?
Can't wait to read this!

and I know how it feels to write 3 books in a year (hell last year I wrote 4) and it nearly killed me...

angell said...

WOW - three in one year - that is incredible!!

And might I add

RAWR BABY.

I'll be howling at the moon with any luck tonight. That excerpt is HOT.

Dayle A. Dermatis said...

In general I'm not a fan of werewolves, but these books totally intrigue me! Well done!

Little Lamb Lost said...

Congrats on your new release. The excerpt is smokingly wicked!

Ally said...

Howwwwlllll!

They say so many things, good and bad, evil and good all comes in threes. I want all three.

Wow what a teaser. Leave me ... Panting.

tetewa said...

Enjoyed the excerpt and congrats on the three books!

jothemama said...

Well done on the Three! Can't wait to read this one.

Congratulations on your trilogy! And that is one HOT excerpt.
