I am super excited about the release of my latest Sexy SEAL and my first story in the Unrated mini-series! A SEAL’s Fantasy just might be the sexiest book I’ve ever written (Maybe. Possibly. Hmm, I’m not sure… I hope readers will let me know *g*)
I knew it would be fun to combine the Sexy SEAL world I’ve loved creating with the amped up heat the Unrated books offer, and I knew there was no better hero to really bring on the heat than Dominic Castillo (call sign: Auntie). If you’ve read A SEAL’s Kiss, you probably got to know Castillo pretty well and understand why he’s a guy who needed just the right heroine (you can see his first on-page scene here). A woman who would take nothing off of anybody, who had paid her dues and didn’t fall easily. Lara was just right for that! Tough, savvy, intense and driven, she was SO fun to write.
Want a peek? Here you go…
“You’ve got an interesting pickup line, big guy. What do you call this? The Neanderthal approach? Grab a woman in an alley, grunt a few times about fake relatives and show off your studly moves for the local cockroaches?” Lara hoped her smile was snarky and not shaky, but her nerves were wound too tight to tell.
If she’d wanted to offend him into letting go, though, she straight up failed.
Instead, he shifted. His thigh grazed hers and while his fingers didn’t actually move, she felt like he’d just caressed her arm. His dark eyes turned molten and his lips quirked into a sexy little smile. Heat swirled through Lara’s system like a whirlwind, filling her body with longings and her mind with crazy thoughts.
“Tell you what, sweetheart. Why don’t we get out of this alley and I’ll work up a line you’ll like much better.” His words were silky smooth. So slick and easy that she doubted he’d ever had a single unsure moment in his life.
Now her nerves were racing for a whole different reason.
Eyes wide, Lara wet her lips.
His eyes dropped, amusement fading.
Lara’s stomach clenched.
Not out of fear.
This was pure, liquid desire.
She’d rather be afraid.
But she also wanted out of the alley. She knew all eyes were still on them, that the creep cadre was only waiting for a chance to unleash their ugly.
“Why don’t we go out front,” she suggested after clearing her throat a couple of times. Out front were real people. Tourists and cops and traffic. She figured it’d take her three, maybe five minutes to ditch him there.
“Let’s go,” he agreed.
As if he knew she was going to bolt, he kept ahold of her arm as they made their way to the end of the building. As soon as they rounded the corner Lara relaxed. Like a lullaby, the sound of traffic, people and music soothed. She glanced at the mountain out of the corner of her eye, then wished she hadn’t.
He shouldn’t look as intimidating out here.
But he was.
The dim alley lighting had hid his scariest feature.
Lara cringed, averting her eyes in hopes that the stained, dirty sidewalk would wipe the image away.
He had dimples.
Dimples on a guy, those were fatal.
“Coffee?” Dimpled and gorgeous asked.
“What?” Lara looked up and almost sighed. She didn’t have time for a guy like him.
It’d take hours, maybe days even, to explore that body. Weeks just to get through her own fantasies about sex with a gorgeous, dimpled guy. God knew how long it’d take if he had fantasies of his own.
Nope, she glanced at her watch. She was already late.
She risked another look at him, noting the stubborn set of his chin and the determined light in those dark blue eyes. Blue, she thought as her nipples tightened. Blue eyes and dimples. The man was toxic.
Her mental debate took all of two seconds. She wasn’t going to convince him to let her go and she couldn’t match his strength. There was only one option left.
Seduce him stupid.
By the end of A SEAL’s Fantasy, Lara had touched my heart and I know she touched Dominic’s (heart… she touched his heart ). I hope she does the same for readers, too. If you do check out A SEAL’s Fantasy, please let me know what you thought!!!
A SEAL’s Fantasy is out in print now, and will be released in digital at midnight Sunday. You know, just as soon as the clock strikes September 1!!
