Read an Excerpt


Navy Petty Officer First Class Reid Galvin hopped off the idling Black Hawk with three of his teammates and trudged across Bagram's baking tarmac to the cinderblock building that loomed before him. The intense August sun beat down on his shoulders, but it did nothing to melt the ice inside him.

Shoving open the door with one arm, he didn't look back at the others as they unloaded the body bags from the Chinook. Twenty-four of them. Five more bodies and other remains were still being recovered from the mangled wreckage at the crash site.

He'd done his job for the moment—secured the crash site and helped with the recovery effort. All of the victims had been in pieces, burned so badly they were beyond recognition. Each body part would have to be examined forensically to identify the charred remains in the bags.

In some ways, that was the hardest part to take. Knowing the family members would have to wait for the gruesome identifications to be completed before funeral arrangements could be made stateside. This loss was a huge blow to the SPECOPS community. To the U.S. military as a whole, and its role in the War on Terror. And though they'd been hit the hardest, the SEAL community didn't have time to mourn its fallen brothers.

He'd nearly been one of them. He'd originally been slated to be on that mission in Wardak province the day that Chinook had been shot down. Instead he'd been reassigned at the last moment with a few of his teammates. Fate had a goddamn twisted sense of humor sometimes.

Compared to the arid heat outside, the interior of the building was chilly from the air conditioning, bathed in a bluish glow from the fluorescent lighting. Reid rubbed a weary hand over his face. He hadn't slept in almost three days. Had barely eaten.

Beside him, one of his teammates started taking off his gear and stowing it in his locker, his movements rife with frustration. "Tonight can't get here fast enough."

"Tell me about it." Once night fell they'd be on the hunt for the ones responsible for the crash. In the darkness they'd be in their element, finally doing something about avenging their fallen brothers. Hell, they'd all go out again right now in spite of their exhaustion if their commander hadn't ordered them to get some rack time.

Reid dropped his ruck and took care of his M-4 before peeling off his dirty BDUs that stank of jet fuel and scorched metal. He couldn't get the stench of burned flesh out of his nostrils. The short, hot shower awaiting him wouldn't help much either. All the soap in the world wouldn't take that smell away completely.

The smell of two dozen SEALs' blood spilled into the Afghan soil.

Tired to the bone, Reid stripped and stepped into the shower, only to find the spray was lukewarm at its hottest setting. He scrubbed himself down with the strong soap before toweling off and pulling a fresh T-shirt and cammies on. Behind some of the others he walked the length of the hall to their temporary barracks and crawled onto his cot as someone hit the lights. After a few minutes the sound of slow breathing and the occasional soft snore of one of his teammates filled the dark, quiet room.

Despite the fatigue pulling at his heavy eyelids, sleep wouldn't come. The need for action hummed in his veins, the sense of raw frustration and impatience demanding he do something. People were working on the situation right now, he reminded himself. His brothers' deaths would not go unanswered.

When he finally closed his eyes, it wasn't his fellow SEALs' faces he saw. It was Becca's.

    REVIEW:
    This was actually very touching! I loved the opening and found the entire story to be very sweet, sexy, and real. I loved the characters she developed and found each point made, one I gripped on to even more.

    The suspense and danger in the piece was also great, but I do wish it would have given a bit more at the end, hence four stars instead of five, but the writing was on par, the romance hot and steamy, and the characters entirely lovable.

    If you’re looking for something to keep you on the edge of your seat for both suspense and sexiness, then pick this one up today! Four out of five stars for a great job!

    Military romantic suspense, erotic  Becca and Navy SEAL Reid hav

    Military romantic suspense, erotic 
    Becca and Navy SEAL Reid have gone out on a couple of dates and she thought they had something special going but when she gets no response to an erotic email she figures he doesn’t feel the same.  Now he is back from deployment and wants to get together but Becca has a date with a co-worker.  When her dates car is pushed off the road it is Reid who saves them.  Grateful for the rescue Becca agrees to hear Reid out. But it is going to take some sweet talking to get her past the hurt his silence has caused.  Reid is better with action than words and her email has given him a way to get his feelings across.
    Hmmm a sexy Navy SEAL, mystery, and a whole lot of steamy sex.  What’s not to love?  After an awkward beginning this book takes off like a freight train.  Prepare for action and adventure inside the bedroom and out.  If you like your military romantic suspense extra spicy this is the dish for you.

    Callie writes suspense and military heroes so well. She does her

    Callie writes suspense and military heroes so well. She does her research and knows her stuff. I don't normally read erotic romance, so this was a little different for me. Lots of hot intimate scenes that were well written along with a loving romance between Reid and Becca all while Becca had dangerous people after her regarding information she inadvertently discovered at work.

    Reid is back home after a long deployment to find Becca out with a colleague for the evening. He can't stand waiting around for her so he drives to her place. Along the way he comes up on a car accident - one that has a car underwater on the side of the road. He jumps in to help and finds out it is Becca and her colleague, David. Not quite the way Reid wanted his reunion with Becca to go. Reid and Becca spend time together over the weekend which allows them to explore their feelings for each other both in bed and out. While I know that the intimacy is what is supposed to drive a lot of this book, there was also a good story that goes along with it. One that showcases Reid's SEAL abilities as well as his protectiveness and love for Becca.

    What I liked most about this book was that story started out with Reid and Becca already having a relationship. The conflict showed how Reid and Becca are going to handle their relationship with him being a SEAL and not around for periods of time. I thought Callie did a good job building this relationship on more than just intimacy. There was a level of love and trust that was developed between the two. There were some very touching moments, one particularly in which I teared up. The ending was perfect between Reid and Becca and the way the subplot was tied up was realistic and appropriate for the story. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys erotic romance with a little suspense.
