Read an Excerpt

Sun.

Surf.

His rock.

The only thing that would make it better would be another cold beer, but Rig wasn't in the mood to move. Nope. He was in full basking-lizard mode. Well, trying to be. If the wind didn't blow he could forget it was just an incredibly warm day.

He let one foot dangle down into the water, the touch cool and comfortable, almost chilly.

Yep. He was a lucky motherfucking redneck.

A shadow blocked the sun, and something wet and warm slid along his exposed collarbone. "Mmm ... sweaty cowboy. My favorite kind."

"Mmm. Blue." His own growly stud, right there. Life was good.

"I've got a thing or two for you." Rock's tongue slid up along his neck, circled the skin just below his ear.

"I. Uh. What?" He got a little side-tracked. Well, more than a little.

"They're kind of the same shape. Both hard. One's hot, the other's cold." Rock nipped his earlobe.

"Hard." Rig liked hard. He tilted his head, encouraging his big, studly ex-marine to keep going.

Those warm lips slid down his neck again and along his shoulder, tongue licking, wetting his skin. "Both hard. Here's the cold one." The bottom end of a beer bottle landed on an exposed strip of his belly, making him jump.

"Fuck!" He hooted, grabbing for the longneck. Oh, fuck yes. Beer.

Beer. Beer. Beer.

Laughing, Rock slid a hand along his hip. "Drink it up and I'll give you the other one."

"Mmm. You're good to me, Blue. Y'all have a good workout?" Rock and Dick had gone out after lunch to do ... something at the gym.

Rock grinned. "I showed the kid a thing or two, yeah."

One finger slid under his shirt, up over his nipple, all the way over tohis other one, and flicked the little gold ring in it. Every Goddamn nerve in his body went tingly, Rig's cock filling right up, unmistakable, undeniable. And from the shit-eating grin on his Blue's face, Rock knew it. The ring was flicked again, and then Rock's fingers trailed down along his belly.

"Mmm. You're wanting." His cock tried to reach that square, callused hand, just needing the touch. Needing something, even after all this time.

Rock's fingers stilled, staying at a level with his navel, torturing him. "Always. I'm not the only one, either."

Just listen to that husky growl.

    A Beautiful Ending to a Wonderful Series

    It's been nearly twenty years since that first Valentine's Day from 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' Rock's a lot more open with his affections now that he's a civilian, and he seems to be a little sensitive about the age thing. Rock's just as growly and just a bit grumbly, but his gym is keeping him busy now, along with his men. Richard, broader and brawnier, is still the youngster and the perceptive one, sensitive to the emotional needs of his men. He's struggling some with his classes and he doesn't want to disappoint, so he just tries a little harder. Rigger's happier, frisky and teasing - and maybe just a touch temperamental. But that's our Rigger. Rig's been feelin' a little tired lately - maybe all he needs is some vacation time and quality time alone with his men. The pages of this book burn with the deliciously abundant, sizzling lovin' that we have come to expect from our boys. The boys are a family and there's not doubt whatsoever that they love each other deeply, passionately and eternally. 'On the Sand' is filled with the quieter, gentler moments of life and living and the beautifully intense moments as they face their fears and anxieties. And we still have the humor with those special Jarhead moments that Sean writes so well. I can use one word to sum up my feelings for this book: perfection. Just like in real life there are the good times and the bad times. We see the boys face another crisis, their love giving them the necessary strength to support each other as they try to get back to the normal things in life. We're treated to another heartwarming holiday season with a couple very special holiday visitors and a startling revelation. And Sean gives us one final Jarhead moment as the boys welcome in the New Year reflecting and appreciating how good their lives have been.
