Every Saturday, a group of romance authors share sexy snippets from their published works or works-in-progress. To read some more of these, click here.
My snippet comes from my upcoming release AMALFI AFFAIR (Navy Seals of Valor 1), to be published mid-to-late August.
But first, here’s the blurb:
On a cycling tour through the Swiss Alps, CIA agent, Olivia Simpson, meets handsome Navy SEAL, Darryl Jennings. Her lust shifts into overdrive for this man on leave from missions he won’t discuss. A one night stands leads to a blissful week traveling the Amalfi Coast. Because of their secretive careers, their love affair is destined to end. Olivia immerses herself into her Intelligence work with memories of Darryl never far from the surface. When she receives a surprise phone call from him nine months later, she dashes off to meet him in Italy. Too late, she realizes the call had been made by an imposter to lure her into a trap.
Despite Darryl’s decision to end his relationship with Olivia, he returns to his missions in Afghanistan unable to shake her from his heart. Regret for letting her go gnaws at him until he decides to search for her. After following numerous dead end leads, he gives up on ever finding the elusive woman who stole his heart nine months prior. When he’s called in for a mission to rescue a high-level intelligence officer who’s been kidnapped, he realizes the woman in question is his Olivia. Pressure mounts as he becomes embroiled in a mission where the fate of his country and his true love falls on his shoulders.
Here’s a romantic scene from Darryl’s POV to whet your appetite for this soon-to-be released book!
Olivia’s cheeks were flushed and she sat on the pool step tracing figure eights through the water with a red-painted toe. He felt relaxed and sated after their lusty interlude, but knew that feeling wouldn’t last long with her around. After a single day, he’d become addicted to her, constantly craving her body wrapped around his. Whenever too much time passed, a sudden desperation overcame him without warning and he felt like he had to be inside her, to possess her with every ounce of his being.
He’d always been in control of his emotions before—even lust—and wasn’t sure how to reconcile what he was experiencing. “I’ve never had pool sex before. But I’d sure like to do it with you again.”
Her brown eyes looked at him with wide adoration.
You’re in big trouble man, he thought to himself.
