Book: Tempted by a SEAL
Release Date: January 12, 2016
Series: Hot SEALs #6
The 3 Rules of Christmas According Navy SEAL hero Mack
So you want to land a SEAL? Or maybe you already are in a relationship with one and you’d like to know what to do for him for the holidays. Why you’d want to be with one of us long term is beyond me, but if you do, here are a few Christmas dos and don’ts.
No Sugar Cookies – No. Just no. Never ever make a SEAL sugar cookies. Why not? I’ll tell you. In BUD/S training the instructors made us do what is called sugar cookies. Basically rolling around in our wet uniforms in the sand at Coronado. The words sugar cookie will always remind me of being wet and cold and exhausted for hours, with no end in sight. If you want to make me cookies for Christmas, make them Rum Balls and we’ll both be a lot happier.
No Bells – The same goes for bells as for sugar cookies. Yeah, yeah, I know… every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings. Well, that’s Jimmy Stewart’s world in It’s a Wonderful Life. In a SEALs world, during BUD/S every time a bell rings it means another guy dropped out of the course. Wanna see a SEAL twitch? Ring a damn bell and watch closely.
Lingerie Works – As far as gifts go, we probably want something you’ll never ever think to buy for us. A new scope for our rifle. Night vision goggles (the four tube NVGs, not those crappy two tube ones). Don’t bother trying to get me anything like that. You’ll never get it right. Just get me lingerie. No, not for me to wear, silly. For you to wear for me. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. I’ll be a happy man and believe me, you’ll be a very happy lady. It’ll be a ride wilder than that racing boat I’m dying to buy, I promise. *wink*
About the Book:
Loner. Biker. SEAL.
Known only as Mack to his SEAL teammates, he’s a stone cold killer when he needs to be, but he’d rather just straddle his Harley and escape from everything and everyone. The only person who calls James MacIntyre by his given name is his father, the one family member he has left . . . that is until his widowed father meets a divorcee and decides to remarry.
Suddenly, these former strangers have become Mack’s new family, all calling him James whether he likes it or not. The problem is he’s starting to crave hearing his name breathed against his ear by his new stepmother’s curvy co-ed daughter, Lydia.
