Cowboy-Sexy ~ @Donna_Michaels #MySexySaturday #MSSWeek34 #Saturday7

My Sexy Saturday Blog Hop!




Hello, February! Can you believe we're into the second month of 2014 already? Let's hope it starts to warm up!!

It's week #34! Welcome to My Sexy Saturday where authors post 7 words, sentences or paragraphs from a published book or WIP.
 
This week we’re talking about those broken heroes and heroines who think they have nothing left to give to another person. They’ve stopped looking for their soul mates or don’t believe they even have one. As an author, we love to prove them wrong, and as a reader, we love to see them find their happily-ever-after!
 

My installment in the Honky Tonk Hearts Series with The Wild Rose Press has such a hero. Former Navy SEAL, Finn Brennan is a bitter man whose busted leg cost him his military career and fiancĂ©. I had a lot of fun shaking up his world by dropping a former female Marine on his dude ranch. He hates Marines. It was a Marine that caused his injury. Yeah, sparks fly. lol They are both headstrong, hurting, and very attracted to each other. Fun stuff.

Here's 7 sexy paragraphs of from:

"So, you're just doing this out of the goodness of your heart."
“Yes.”
“Bullshit.”
Amusement slowly vanished in her narrowing eyes. “Excuse me?”
“There’s more to it.” He walked to where she stood by the bench, their gazes locked. “I’ll ask you again, Ms. Walker. Why are you here?”
Irritation skittered through her brown eyes. She blew out a breath and folded her arms across her chest. He tried not to notice the increased cleavage, but the pleasant valley silently beckoned.
Damn woman was loaded with weapons, and for an instant, he longed to see the whole arsenal. He shook his head and tuned back in to her voice.
“We’ve been through all this, cowboy. You’re trying to kill a dead horse.”
He cocked his head. “We’re not talking about a horse. We’re talking about you, and why you’re here. There’s something you’re not telling me, and I want to know what it is.”
“Fine.” Her arms dropped to swing at her sides. “Your brother was there for me during some tough times. I’m returning the favor.”
That told him exactly nothing. He wanted details. So help him, if this woman was dishonorably discharged. His heart dropped. “What tough times?”
“None of your business.” She turned to walk away.
He grabbed her arm and twisted her back around. “Wrong. It is my business. You’re under my roof, on my land, in proximity to my mother. I want to know what happened, and I want to know now.”

I agree, Evelise! That rivalry has been around forever, and made the H and h very interesting. :-)
