Kicking off blogs about hot military men, former or active
Saturday, February 8th, 2020

Why do military men, active or former, make such great boy friends? They are heroes in so any novels and movies, idolized and lusted after, men who are icons of what so many women want their significant others to be.

They love deeply and thye are committed forever.

They have a strong sense of protection and are there for you in dangerous times.

They are warriors who are protective and will put themselves in the line of fire for you.
Think of all the movies where men in the military have been the stars. movies like American Sniper (the story of Chris Kyle), Zero Dark thirty (the hunt for Osama bin Laden), Lone Survivor (the story of the survival of SEAL marcus Luttrell), Top Gun, The LOngest Day, The Patriot…Well, you get the idea. I could go on and on but I now everyone out there has your own favorite. The point is, these are the heroes that live on in our minds…at least in mine!!…, men that so many authors use as models for their heroes.
Whether from the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, the Coast Guard or the Marines, they all represent  that strength and dedication.
That is why a group of authors and I wanted to introduce you to stories whose heroes are current or former military, and who will stay in your heats and minds long after the book is finished.
Get ready to be wowed.

 

A Vegas fling never leads to love…does it?

WHAT WAS I THINKING!

Rivers Bend Trilogy Book #3

 

Donna Simonette brings you a fun, romantic story that will stay with you long after you’ve finish the last page.

Blurb:

A wild Vegas fling isn’t the traditional Thanksgiving celebration, and Lily and Jason have been like oil and water since they met. Blaming their steamy hook-up on too many shots at the bar, they head home.

Back in the real world, Jason wonders if he’s ready to give up his crown as the Playboy King of Rivers Bend to be with just one woman. And Lily has enough on her plate right now without adding Jason Braden to the mix, even if their attraction is crazy-strong.

But life is good at throwing curveballs, and a lot can happen between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day. Maybe even enough to lead these two polar opposites home to each other in Rivers Bend.

Excerpt:

“I think about a lot of things.”

She felt him stiffen up behind her, and Jason’s tone of voice was defensive. She hadn’t meant to hurt his feelings. “I know you do; I didn’t mean anything by it. We poke at each other”—she shrugged—“it’s kind of our thing.”

His grip on her hand loosened, and then he took control of the dance, by twirling her until her back was pressed to his front, and he began to move sinuously in time to the rhythm. His breath tickled her ear, as he spoke right in it to be heard over the music. “We’ve got a thing, Moonbeam?”

Jason had ditched the tie and suit jacket after the wedding, and his body heat scorched her through his crisp white dress shirt. And man-oh-Maneschewitz, his lean, hard body felt good. Really good. The Marine might be bulked up, but Jason’s body felt like it had been made for hers, which given their mutual antagonism, seemed like proof Fate was enjoying a good laugh at her expense. Against Lily’s better judgment, her body melted into his warmth and began to move with his.

“Sure, we’ve got a thing,” she said over her shoulder, and was irritated to hear a trace of breathlessness in her voice. She cleared her throat and continued, “Like that—you calling me Moonbeam, because you know it bugs me.”

*************   

He warned her what would happen if she didn’t stay away. She didn’t listen.

Rough, dirty brutes aren’t Faith Miller’s type, especially when they ride a Harley and treat her with the manners of a caveman… or at least that’s what she thought before she met Hunter.

He told her what he would do to her if she came near him again. He warned her that next time he wouldn’t hold back and he wouldn’t be gentle. Faith didn’t believe him… or maybe she did.

Now, with her panties torn off and her face pressed into the sofa cushions as the first searing stroke of his belt lands on her already burning hot bottom, Faith knows she is in deep trouble. But with the evidence of her body’s shameful surrender dripping down her bare thighs, will she plead for mercy, or will she beg him to mount her, claim her, and rut her like a savage beast?

Publisher’s Note: Rough Alpha includes sexual scenes and spankings. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Terror gipped her thundering heart. He was going to take her, use her, abuse her, then what? His devouring mouth muffled her screams, forcing her to siphon air through her nose. His long, thick, calloused fingers clutched her wrists, holding them above her head, the concrete wall, cold and hard, scraped her hands.

“Is this what you wanted?” he snarled, his lips suddenly pressed against her ear. “Is this why you’re here?” His mouth dove down to  suck her tender neck. “What’s wrong?” he demanded, his bristled jaw rasping her skin. “Can’t talk? Huh, can’t talk?”

“S-stop—p-please.”

“I told you not to come back,” he growled, his free hand groping her breasts, “or did you forget?”

“P-please…”

“I warned you. I told you what would happen if you did. Is this your way of begging for my cock?”

Helpless in his steel grip, she could do nothing as he lifted her skirt and shoved his hand in her panties.

“Ha, you’re drenched.”

His sharp whiskers grazed her cheek as his roughened thumb pressed against her clit. Her mutterings of protest filled the empty space, but when his finger slid into her wet depths, her cries became a gasp. She wanted to give in. She wanted to be on the floor, his manhood thrusting, her arms pinned. Instead she lifted her foot and stabbed the stiletto heel into his toe.

“Work boots! The leather’s tough, like my hide. But that’s what you like about me.”

“You’re wrong. You’re a fucking neanderthal.”

“Then what are you doing here?” he demanded, abruptly yanking his hand from her crotch to fist her hair and tug it back. “Look at me. Hey! I said look—at—me!”

She raised her eyes. His, crystal blue and glowering, glinted back.

“Tell me why you’re here!”

“I, uh…”

“I’m not a patient man.”

“I, uh, like empty building sites.”

He paused, the crinkles around his eyes deepening.

“Stop the bullshit. What woman in stilettos walks through a dark, empty construction yard?”

“A s-stupid one?”

She wanted to suck the words back.

“Was that supposed to be funny?”

“Maybe.”

“Do I look like I’ve gotta sense of humor?”

“Let me go!”

“You came for me. You wanted this.”

“N-no…”

“The first time, maybe it was an accident. Maybe you wandered in, but twice?”

“Dammit, you’re wrong,” she spat. “You’re so wrong.”

Suddenly jerking her forward, he stepped behind her and landed a barrage of stinging smacks on her backside. The assault lasted only seconds, but left her with a scorched behind and gasping for breath.

“Lyin’ don’t fly with me, sweetheart.”

“B-but—“

His hand still locked in her hair, he stared down at her, a deep scowl crossing his brow.

“Keep it up and your ass will be naked when I whip it. Sit!” he barked, pushing her to the filthy concrete floor.

Wishing her racing heart would stop its wild thumping, she watched him pick up her bag. For a fleeting moment she thought he was going to give it back to her, but he opened the flap and pulled out her wallet.

“Faith Miller,” he grunted. “Nice name.”

Stuffing it back into the purse, his brawny body towered over her, his heavily muscled arms boasting his power and strength. Leaning down and gripping her arm, he pulled her to her feet and shoved the bag against her chest.

“Get the fuck out of here. If I see you again I’ll strip you bare, tan your butt ’til it’s on fire, then fuck you into next week. Got it?”

ROUGH ALPHA

 

 

She’d escaped for the moment, but she had no doubt Ford would be after her when the film ended. As the lights dimmed she searched for an answer, and realized there was only one way to avoid him. The movie began. She allowed herself the pleasure of enjoying the exciting thriller, but the moment the credits began to roll she hurried through the dark auditorium to the exit. Taking a relieved breath, she slipped into the brightly lit lobby.

He heart sank.

Ford was already lingering near the front doors.

She darted into the ladies room, determined to stay there until everyone had left—including him. Many women came and went, and when the noise from the lobby had quieted, she cracked open the door. A young man was busy vacuuming, and a girl was cleaning the refreshments counter. Tired and relieved, she moved through the theatre and stepped outside. The cold air nipped her skin, the ground shone from a rain shower, and the empty parking lot felt ominous, but there was no sign of Ford or his Porsche. Walking quickly towards her car, she began rummaging in her bag for the keys.

“Shit,” she muttered, glancing down as she fumbled in the semi-dark. “Where the hell are they?”

“Maybe I can help.”

Ford!

Before she could respond, he grabbed her arm, jerked her around and snatched her bag.

“For pity’s sake, what are you doing?” she demanded, though her heart was racing. “Give that back to me.”

“You’re way too uptight,” he sniggered. “You can relax while I drive your car!”

“I don’t think so, and where’s the Porsche?”

“Parked around the side of the theatre.”

“Why did you move it?”

“Why do you think, you stupid bitch?” he barked, suddenly scowling. “In case you didn’t hear me the first time, you and I are leaving  in your car.”

“Ford, stop this! Your masterly act does nothing for me,” she exclaimed, trying to sound unafraid as she attempted to control her panic. “I’m not going anywhere with you, not in my car or in yours.”

“I told you, I don’t take no for—”

But his eyes suddenly darted up. He froze, but only for a moment, then uttering a short, sharp cry he abruptly released her arm, dropped her bag, and began staggering backwards.

“Ford, what’s the—?”

A deep growl cut her off. Slowly turning around, her heart beating wildly, she spied a huge black dog. It’s body low and his fangs bared, it was walking towards them, but she quickly realized its eyes were focused on Ford.

“Fuck! No, no, no!” Ford bleated as the creature broke into a trot. “I’m going, I’m going. Please, don’t hurt me. I’ll leave her alone, I swear. I will. I swear.”

His piteous plea had no affect. The creature lunged forward, sank its teeth into Ford’s calf, then jumped back, snarling viciously. Hobbling away as fast as his bleeding leg would allow, Ford continued to blubber his promises.

The dog turned to face her.

Though trembling from head to foot, and afraid she’d be next, she forced herself to stay still, but to her surprise and enormous relief the dog sat down and lifted its paw.
