New York Times bestselling author Anne Elizabeth shoots for the stars in her fourth West Coast Navy SEALs romance
-------------------------------------------------------I love romance! Little sweet notes stuck into socks, darling dark chocolates left on the bedside table, gifts given ‘just because’ or the best of all, a big welcoming smile when he sees me. Sometimes, I think my husband will pick a fight with me just so we can make-up, ahem, really make-up; and I have to admit that I love him dearly for it. So, is it any wonder that I enjoy writing stories, which incorporate romance and do it all SEAL-style?
The SOUL of a SEAL was a very special book to write as it allowed me to be drop-dead romantic at times as well as pursue something both my husband and I adore—SPACE. We often sit outside and gaze at the moon and stars or on rare occasions watch the meteor showers, and as he constantly reminds me, the space program and the SEAL community have a very strong link. There are a number of frogmen who swam out to meet the Space Capsules when they landed in the water during its heyday. At least two Navy SEALs have gone into space, Cassidy and Shepard, and I’ve spoken with several present day SEALs who seek to travel into space someday, too. There’s something special about the concept of space. Perhaps the vastness contains hope for humanity, cures for illness, or ways to help protect our planet, or maybe it’s just the pursuit of the unknown and learning something new. Whatever the reason, I’m thrilled I was given an opportunity to take a SEAL into space, and I’m even happier that SEAL love endures—when a SEAL male meets the right alpha lady…fireworks!
“I love the way you look at me like you’re seeing into my soul.” Her eyes flashed with heat before closing to half-mast. She licked her lips and then held eye contact with him. “You’re stuck with me, Boss. I’m never going to let go. The mission will work out. I have faith—in you and me and this project.”
“I apologize about before… I believe you, Kimberly. More importantly, I believe in you.” He held her gaze, opening himself to her. This woman was under his skin in a way he could never have imagined, and if he walked away today, she would still be there for the rest of his life. How could he deny that truth…about her?
“Can we get naked now?” She cupped his bottom and squeezed.
“I think that’s my line.” He laughed. This sexy woman wanted him as much as he wanted her. He pulled his shirt over his head and dropped it to the floor, then brought his face close to hers.
Her lips brushed his, teasing him. She pulled out of his grasp easily, as if he hadn’t been holding her at all.
What was she doing to him? His eyes scanned her. He could see the hunger in there, the warmth, the want, and the need.
“Kiss me. Really knock my socks off, and don’t hold back.” She stood there, waiting and wanting.
“Aye, aye.” He grinned as hunger rose to the surface. He lifted her into his arms and then laid his mouth against hers, drinking from, pillaging, and dueling with hers.
Kimberly’s arms twined around his neck at first and then her hands moved, gaining greater purchase. Her fingers dug into the muscle mass around his shoulders. The small bursts of pain as she changed her grip added more levels of heat to his already boiling desire.
Hands fumbled with clothes, tugging and tearing until they were both naked.
Their primal natures took over as Bennett carried her to…
