Did you know yesterday was PRINT and eBOOK release day for KISSED BY A SEAL in my Hot SEALs series?! Well it was. If you missed it in the midst of all of the St. Patrick’s Day revelry, green beer and corned beef, here is a peek inside my new release.
Kissed by a SEAL EXCERPT
Chris pulled Darci into his arms and rested his chin on top of her head. She wasn’t short for a woman, but her sandals were flat, and Chris was tall. In this position, she realized exactly how tall he was . . . and big, and warm, and solid beneath her cheek as she rested against his chest.
“You dance well.” Though they were swaying so slowly, she wasn’t sure what they were doing could really be considered dancing.
“For a redneck, you mean?”
“No. I was thinking more for a muscle-bound brute.”
A low chuckle rumbled through him. “Thank you. That’s quite a compliment.”
“If you say so.” It was easier to joke and tease than admit the strange new feelings ricocheting through her when Chris held her close.
After all these years of dismissing him, discounting his attention, tolerating his jokes, she was seeing a different side of him. He could be sweet and he could be serious. Deadly serious. The gun she felt at the small of his back hidden beneath his sports jacket was evidence of that.
But more than all that, he made her body feel things she wasn’t sure she wanted to feel with him. She wanted him. Wanted his big, hard body pressed against hers, and not on a public dance floor.
He wanted to stay until the last of the family and guests left, but after that there was a good chance they’d be alone in the privacy of their room. Then what the hell was she going to do?
Chris dropped a kiss on the top of her head, probably just to reinforce their cover story that they were a couple for anyone watching. Just two people sharing an incredible room at a gorgeous resort.
The longer she spent wrapped in his arms, the more she felt like that was exactly what they were. She lifted her head and looked up at him.
“You doing okay?” he asked.
She swallowed before answering. “Yes.”
Rising onto her tiptoes, she pressed a kiss to his lips. When she pulled back, she saw his surprise.
“Darci, how strong was that drink you had?” If he was afraid she was drunk, he didn’t have to worry.
She shook her head. “Not strong at all.”
“Good.” He lowered his head and took her lips in a kiss that was probably too intense considering where they were. Then he pulled away and blew out a breath. “I’m supposed to be working.”
He cocked one brow. “Yeah, like I’m really paying attention to anything besides you.”
“Sorry. Do you want to go sit down?”
Chris let out a laugh. “Don’t you dare be sorry, and no, I’m not walking around the pool like this. Give me a minute, then we’ll sit.”
The truth was, she wasn’t at all sorry. She felt evidence of the truth of his words as his hard length pressed against her stomach. She had to hide her smile. “Okay.”
