I love romance! More, I love writing romance and sharing stories with readers who love it like I do. Even after 40 books, itâ€™s always exciting to bring a new book into the world and hoping readers are interested enough to want to spend time with the story, and more importantly to me, with the characters. With CALL TO HONOR, readers get to meet Navy SEAL and member of the elite Team Poseidon, Lt. Diego Torres and Harper Maclean, a single mom with secrets she wants to keep hidden.
Hereâ€™s a peek at their first meet in CALL TO HONOR:
Harper stepped through the iron fence and froze.
The new neighbor was in his backyard. Barefoot and shirtless, he wore what looked like black pajama bottoms. He simply flowed across the moon-drenched lawn. Kicks, turns, chops and punches flowed in a seamlessly elegant dance.
Was that martial arts he was doing?â€¨Shirtless.â€¨She couldnâ€™t quite get past that one particular point.â€¨It was too delicious.â€¨But instead of licking her lips, Harper clenched her fists tight at her side.â€¨Why the hell was a man who looked like that living next door to her? More to the point, why did her libido choose now to wake up? Was it some cosmic joke that sheâ€™d remember now, despite her claims to the contrary, she was a sexually aware woman who had needs and desires?
Harper watched him do some sort of flip, feet in the air and his body resting on one hand. Muscles rippled, but he wasnâ€™t even breathing hard as he executed an elegant somersault to land, feet first on the grass, knees low and arms extended.
Sheâ€™d bet all of her needs and desires could be handled quite nicely by her gorgeous, and quite physically impressive, new neighbor.
Harper would have growled if she werenâ€™t worried the guy would notice the slightest sound and turn around. The last thing she wanted while she was going through this personal crisis was attention.
She wanted to blame Andi. Oh, not for the new neighbor. Arranging for good-looking neighbors wasnâ€™t one of Andiâ€™s oft-bragged about skills. But putting the idea of sex and lust and, yes, dammit, craving, into Harperâ€™s mind so her imagination ran wild when she looked at the new neighbor? That was totally and completely Andiâ€™s fault.
Her stomach tightened with an edgy need she recognized as desire as the guy did a series of kicks, each one higher than the other with the last aimed straight overhead.
He had tattoos.
A cross riding low on his hip and something tribal circling one bicep.
Who knew tattoos were so sexy?
Harperâ€™s mouth went dry. Her libido, eight years in deep freeze, exploded into lusty flames so hot they scorched away all her spit. She couldnâ€™t swallow, could barely breathe. She had to try twice to clear the tight knot of lust in her throat.
Wow, she thought for the third time.â€¨Because some things definitely deserved repeating. The man was incredible.â€¨Gorgeous. She was pretty sure he was gorgeous. It was hard to tell, though, because her head was spinning.
He looked like some kind of pagan godâ€”the ones who liked to deflower virginsâ€”with that commanding air, impressive body and golden skin stretched over well-toned muscles.
Short black hair that spiked here and there over a face made for appreciative sighs. Sharp cheekbones rose high, accenting full lips. Thick brows arched over deep-set eyes, and he had a scar on his chin that glowed in the moonlight.
She heard herself gulp before she realized sheâ€™d done it.
Wondering where her spit had gone, Harper decided that sheâ€™d better get the hell out of there. Before he saw her. Before she did something to make sure he saw her.
So… what do you think? Would you spend some time with these characters and get to know them better?
