Tips for Getting a SEAL’s Attention
by Julie Ann Walker
Hi everyone! My name is Julie Ann Walker and I’m totally stoked to be here today introducing my new romantic suspense series, Deep Six! The series follows the story of six newly retired Navy SEALs who just can’t seem to shake their past and the Navy SEAL motto that “the only easy day was yesterday.” Set in the Florida Keys, the books are chock-a-block full of all the good things. Sun and sand. Danger and intrigue. Oh… and plenty of shirtless alpha hunks!
What’s not to love, am I right? And who doesn’t want their very own Navy SEAL? Well, I’m here to give you two surefire ways to snag one. As well as give you examples of how Olivia, the heroine in my first book, HELL OR HIGH WATER, got the attention of her very on SEAL badass, Leo “The Lion” Anderson.
TIP #1: Be courageous! A kickass Navy SEAL needs a woman brave enough to hold her own in any situation…
Leo held out the AK by its strap. “You know how to shoot this?”
“Oh, now you’re ready to let me help?” She took the weapon at the same time she grabbed on to the stainless-steel ladder attached to the Black Gold’s swim deck.
“Actually, I was sort of hopin’ you’d be willin’ to hang back here while I went up to see what’s what,” he admitted.
“Not on your life,” she told him.
“I reckoned as much,” he said with a wry grin, though there was something…more in his expression.
And then before he hauled himself out of the sea and onto the swim deck, he kissed her. Just a quick peck on the lips. But it was enough to make her heart take flight.
TIP #2: Be brazen! A bold, brave Navy SEAL doesn’t have time to deal with a demure, indecisive woman. He needs a woman who know what she wants — in and out of the bedroom — and isn’t afraid to ask for it…
“God, Olivia,” he moaned, tilting her jaw to better align their lips. “Every time I get my mouth on you, I want to gobble you up.”
She shivered at the unabashed longing in his tone. And for the life of her, she couldn’t think of one good reason why he shouldn’t do exactly that. Being eaten alive had never sounded so good.
“I like this plan of yours,” she whispered, sliding her hands up over his shoulders and delighting in the feel of his muscles flexing beneath her questing fingers. His neck was warm against her palms in the second before she speared her hands into his hair. “If you’re going to gobble me up, do you want to add a topping?” she husked between deep, mind-numbing kisses. “Whipped cream? Or, oh!” He did something then with his tongue that had her bare toes curling against her flip-flops. “Or maybe a cherry?” she finished with a throaty laugh.
“I don’t need any toppings,” he assured her, kissing the side of her mouth and rubbing his lips and whiskers along her cheek until he stopped at her ear. The feel of his hot, moist breath against the sensitive shell nearly had her eyes crossing. “You taste absolutely perfect all on your own.”
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy HELL OR HIGH WATER!
