Every Saturday, a group of romance authors share sexy snippets from their published works or works-in-progress. To read some more My Sexy Saturday posts, click here.
My snippet comes from my WIP CZECH MATE (Navy Seals of Valor 2). Anticipated release date for this book is December 1, 2014. In this scene, which immediately follows last week’s Sexy Saturday post, Air Force captain Baylee Stiles was taken hostage at the Bagram Air Force Base Exchange and then rescued by Navy SEAL Nathan Brooks…
“Sorry for crushing you, but I didn’t have many options available at the time.” The man pushed up on his hands before rolling away from her, sitting on the floor beside her. He gazed intently at her. “I hope I didn’t hurt you.”
She raised her head and stared at the handsome man, hoping her gaze wasn’t too wide-eyed. Talk about shock and awe. The man was stunning. He had lively blue eyes, thick dark brows and his broad jaw line was dusted with a dark five o’clock shadow. His hair was as black as coal. She cleared her throat and blinked away her view of his mesmerizing eyes. That’s a Caribbean Sea you could drown in. A wave of dizziness assaulted her. She blinked a few times but the gorgeous man was still there. “I may have a bruise or two, but I’m okay. Did that man get away?”
The man’s thick brows tipped inward and his gaze drifted toward the door. “Yes, he fired off a round and ran. He needs to be stopped.”
Baylee pushed herself up on her hands and knees and looked up at the stunning man, who had risen to his feet and towered over her prostrate form. “He threatened to kill me if I didn’t give him access to the mission control center.”
“Yes, I heard the whole interchange.” The man reached for her hand. “Here, let me help you up.”
“Thanks.” She reached for the man’s strong, lithe hand. Electric heat spiraled through her at his touch, making her forget her tender ribs. His sturdy grip felt comforting. She was reluctant to release him. Once she did, she jammed her hands into her uniform pockets, hoping he wouldn’t sense her nervousness. She’d almost forgotten what it felt like to be attracted to someone… ever since that awful race. “I guess we better come up with a plan.”
“I’ll call security. If he’s headed for the mission control center, they should be able to intercept him there. In the meantime, let’s try to chase him down. I’m Nathan by the way.” Nathan reached for her hand for a second time.
