With each step he took toward her, she took a step back. “You bet I did. I just killed a man to make sure you’re safe and made sure every man out there knows who you and your little friend belong to.”

She narrowed her eyes at him. “I do not belong to you.”

He grinned, white teeth flashing in his tanned face. “Oh, you most certainly do, Angel, and people will expect me to take full advantage of that fact. Which I’ll be doing as frequently as I can.”
She curled her lip in disgust.

Working for an NGO in a war torn country is a dangerous occupation. All physician Angelique Vernet wants after a long day of saving lives and avoiding getting killed is a cold glass of Grey Goose vodka and a hot man in her bed. She gets both from Mitch Acosta, a hot-blooded Special Forces soldier who's always there in the nick of time, in her bed or on the battlefield.

But Acosta wants more from Angelique than she's willing to give. He'd rather she come to him peacefully but he's not above taking what he wants. In a battle of wills that takes them from Africa to South America, two strong-willed people will fight for one another until the bitter end.


  1. Excellent snippet, India. Lots of great tension. And the blurb is wonderful.

    We're glad to have you join us!

    A quick note~ wewriwa/8sunday posts should be at the top of the page on Sunday morning. It makes them easier to find, and maximizes visits and comments by other participants when they don't have to scroll down the page searching for the post. :-)

    1. Thanks Teresa, glad I found y'all! What a fun idea.

    2. We're glad you found us, too, India! :-)

  2. Fantastic characters, can't wait to read more!

  3. Ooooo, he's getting his macho on. I bet she's not going to take that remark lying down as they say! Good snippet!

  4. Sounds like she is caught in a conundrum. An NGO in a dangerous place, alone. On the one hand, he is good to have around. On the other hand, it doesn't sound like what she really wants for intimacy.

  5. Love the premise, love the characters, enjoyed the excerpt - really leaves me wanting to read more!

  6. Arrogant, isn't he? I hope she likes that in a man.
