Author: Cat Porter
Genres: Dark MC Romance, Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 2, 2017
I still have the dreams, baby. Do you?
In mine, I plead and wait for your touch to come like it always did.
But it never does.
I strain against the iron, but you’re no longer there in the shadows.
One single shard of deep dark hope was enough back then.
My claws, your fangs have sunk deep.
Follow my trail of blood,
my trail of anger, desolation.
Am I the same man?
Brewed on vengeance,
laced with tenderness,
my fury for you.
Chained in brutal darkness, they fell in love. Free in the world, they were torn apart. Empires rise, empires fall, and still, she burns in his soul. But between them now runs a wild river of ambition, greed, and blood. So much blood. He’ll do anything for revenge, and she’ll do anything to protect him. Love and vengeance are the same kind of savage...

Fury by Cat Porter
Rosa's rating: 5 of 5 iScream Cones
"Why did we have to sacrifice love for love?"
Taking a chance on Cat Porter's debut novel, Lock & Key, was one of the smartest things I've ever done. She slayed me with her story telling magic and her smooth writing style. She won me over and I've been a fierce fan ever since. She may very well be my favorite author. I can't say for sure because favorite authors are like your children, you love them fiercely and can't choose one over the other because each have their own unique traits. Let's just say she's most definitely up at the very top. I can say with certainty that every one of her books have surpassed the five star limitation placed on reviews, and deserve so many more. I look forward to every single one. The line forms here...
I can't tell you what Fury is about. I can tell you to clear your calendar and set aside a good amount of time to read it. It's a long story, and it deserves your undivided attention. Prepare yourself with snacks, hydration, a fan and some tissues. Hang a DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door of your writing cave, and do the same with your cell phone. Expect the unexpected, open your mind and your heart, and hold on tight. You will experience every emotion, and your head will be so full of thoughts and feelings that you won't be able to stop thinking about it for a long time. And when you make it to the end, you'll be changed. Welcome to the Cat Porter Fan Club...

Cat Porter on FURY
Did you have an inspiration for Finger as you wrote?
There were plenty of tattooed hotties on Instagram who were inspirations, but emotionally it was Heathcliff from “Wuthering Heights.” Like Heathcliff, Finger is rootless and unwanted as a boy. His only true home is his lover’s heart and soul. He’s ambitious and determined and goes on to make something of himself, his own empire in fact, but it’s his savage love for Lenore that fuels everything he does, with her and without her. He will never love anyone else, will never give himself over to anyone but her. Even when they’re separated, and all seems bleak, it’s always her. But unlike Heathcliff and Cathy these two get their much deserved and hard won happy ever after and when they finally do, it’s so gratifying!
Fury is a standalone and spinoff of your Lock & Key series, and it follows the timeline of the entire four books. How crazy was that to write?
It was nuts but it was so much fun to revisit the “old days” of the Jacks club, and wind Finger’s life around certain moments of the Jacks. Keeping track of it all in edits was rough, but it got done. I kept focusing on the fact that Finger was an inspiration to Dig (main character from the L&K series) and it was fun to figure out how each had touched each other’s lives in subtle ways over the years. I love that, because you never know—it can be in the small, unexpected moments that major life changing realizations happen and this time we are in Finger’s head watching Dig and Grace, for example. I managed to do the same with Grace and Lenore too. This let me show events from the past that we’ve previously heard about, but have never seen, and that was so satisfying to do. I got to bring so many characters' issues to full circle for my readers.
More so than your Lock & Key books, “Fury” is brutally violent and darker. Did you feel you had to go there for Finger’s story?
I really did. Finger is a deeply scarred man on the outside and the inside but his will to survive is relentless. Lenore’s will is strong too to the point of harsh. Neither had role models in life to look up to and learn from, so they are both doing the best they can, functioning on instinct and pure will and they are both grim realists after all they’ve endured. Lenore makes particularly hard decisions because she truly feels she’s at the end of the road, that something has to give. It’s not easy for her, not at all. The outlaw world that Finger is involved in is 1% so there’s no glossing over the realities of what it takes to function and survive in that world, and I didn’t want to gloss over them, I couldn’t. I had to face them myself and let Finger roar.
Your upcoming release is the story of Turo, a mafia figure we briefly meet in “Fury.”
Yes! It’s funny because Finger showed up in book 2 of the Lock & Key series, very briefly, and he’d made a huge impression on me as well as my readers. And fans kept asking me about Finger and wanted to know more. I put him in books 3 and 4 too giving him a more important role in events, and I couldn’t wait to give him his own book after all that! So in “Fury,” Turo appeared and fans had the same reaction to him as they’d had to Finger. Very intrigued and excited by him, and so was I. Writing his story was the logical next step because I wanted to find out more about him myself, just like I had done with Finger. And he is his own wild, unexpected experience in “Dagger in the Sea.”
Coming June 6th!
”The velvet tongue”
That’s what they hear
“The silent fixer”
That’s what they whisper
“Turo DeMarco can slice you with that smile”
It’s been known to happen
But the one truth they don’t know could get me killed.
It’s already gotten me thrown into the fire.
I’m the rising dark star of Chicago’s criminal underworld, but I’ve been warned, and I have one chance to make things right, flying halfway around the world to do it.
Then one hot AF heiress gets in my way with an unforgettable kiss and a blast of gunfire, hurling us both into the eye of a Mediterranean hurricane, tangling us in the ultimate high stake game
Our impulsive escape to a Greek island exposes cruel lies, sour truths, explosive passion…and bares our bitter souls
I was always told that actions speak louder than words,
and Adriana proved it to me.
Yet there’s one thing that speaks even louder—
Blood in my heart, blood on my hands.
Blood never lies, never plays games.
Neither do I.
Cat Porter was born and raised in New York City, but also spent a few years in Texas and Europe along the way, which made her as wanderlusty as her parents. As an introverted, only child, she had very big, but very secret dreams for herself.
She graduated from Vassar College, was a struggling actress, an art gallery girl, special events planner, freelance writer, restaurant hostess, and had all sorts of other crazy jobs all hours of the day and night to help make those dreams come true.
She has two children’s books traditionally published under her maiden name.
She now lives on a beach outside of Athens, Greece with her husband and three children, and freaks out regularly, still daydreams way too much, and now truly doesn’t give AF.
She is addicted to reading, cafés on the beach, the Greek islands, Instagram, Pearl Jam, her husband’s homemade red wine, dark chocolate, and reallllllly good coffee.
Writing has always kept her somewhat sane, extremely happy, and a productive member of society.
