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 Air Force captain Becca is shopping at the Bagram Air Force base exchange and then suddenly taken hostage by an unidentified man. Fortunately, Navy SEAL Nathan happens to be nearby…
The man’s foul smelling breath blew hot in her ear. “I want access to the data center.”
Fuck. Becca felt conflicted over what to do next. She couldn’t lead this miscreant straight to every megabyte of confidential information. She wondered how the man had evaded security. Bagram was usually tight as Fort Knox. She’d never heard of an unauthorized person getting through security during the three years she’d been on the base. She winced as the metal jabbed her ribs again.
“What’s the matter with you? Are you deaf? If you want to live, you’ll move your ass.”
“I’m going.” Becca took a hesitant step forward. All at once, the pistol slid down her rib cage and away from her body and the man groaned, sounding as if he’d been hit. Did someone attack him? She jerked around to see her attacker stumbling, still gripping his weapon. As he swung it toward her head, her view of was suddenly obscured by another man’s chest the instant before it struck her and knocked her to the floor.
She gasped for breath and tried to push herself out from beneath the dark form of the man’s rock solid body. The single shot fired rang in her ears before the gunman’s running footsteps grew more distant on the tile. Her savior’s weight was suffocating her. Every rib felt like it had been bruised. Her moan of discomfort was muffled by the man’s muscular chest.
“Are you all right, Miss?” The man had a crisp accent that sounded distinctly East Coast. She’d never been smashed up against a man so solid, muscular and strong. She felt every contour of his body–the ridges of his chest, his firm shoulders and even his thick muscled thighs. Her fiancé had been tall and lean with a runner’s physique. For some reason, this intimate contact with her rescuer ignited her desire.
She felt almost dizzy on his intoxicating scent. He smells like cinnamon aftershave, toothbrush and sweat. Who would have imagined that combination would be so appealing? She wanted to see more of his hot-as-hell physique, but she could only see his armpit. “Yeah, I’m fine, other than the fact that I can’t breathe.”
