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!

About “Torn”

If not for Sadie Keaton, Joe Dawson’s best friend since childhood and the woman he’s been in love with for as long as he can remember, he can’t imagine where he’d be. For the past year, Joe’s been struggling with PTSD after returning home from Afghanistan with the wounds that have left him scarred—both inside and out, and Sadie’s unwavering faith and support has been all that’s kept him going. But when they finally share an unexpected moment of passion, Joe has a hard time believing that Sadie could have feelings for the damaged man he has become and worries that her heart is being ruled by pity and not love. And those doubts are only compounded now that he’s set to resume his duty as a deputy sheriff. But when Sadie starts receiving messages from a secret admirer, messages that grow increasingly frightening and threatening, Joe has to put aside his self-doubt in order to save Sadie from her stalker and put an end to the bastard’s dangerous game before it’s too late to confess the truth of his heart.


Exclusive Excerpt

Kate SeRine’s “Torn”

from Way of the Warrior

There’d been a few times over the years that they’d come close to kissing again. When Joe had held her in his arms while Sadie cried from a recent broken heart after some idiot had dumped her, when she’d comforted him after his mother’s death, before he’d left for Afghanistan, and they’d clung to each other, the thought of being parted again too difficult to even put into words. But they’d always held back, afraid that giving in would ruin their friendship.

But this time… Something had changed. There was something more, a longing that was impossible to deny.

He slowly slid his hand around to the small of her back, pressing ever so slightly, bringing her just a little closer. He could feel her breath quicken, saw her eyes dilate, growing darker. And to his astonishment, her lids drifted shut.

For a split second he hesitated, their mouths so close the heat of their breath intermingled. But only for an instant. When his lips brushed hers in a tender, lingering kiss, it sent a shot of electricity through every nerve ending in his body. Had he not been drenched in sweat from his run, he would’ve dragged her against him and finally explored the mystery of those full lips in the way he’d longed to, but knowing she was on her way to work, he had to content himself with gently grasping the nape of her neck, sliding his fingers into the length of the silky chestnut brown hair that fell below her shoulders, and kissing her slowly, languidly, savoring the warmth of her lips as they sought his.

A tiny moan escaped her, buzzing against his lips. Encouraged, he deepened the kiss, his tongue sweeping across the seam of her mouth. It was all he could do not to whoop for joy when her lips parted, inviting him in.

Sadie’s hands rested lightly against his chest, her palms a welcome warmth against his already heated skin. He took a half step closer but quickly stepped back when his raging erection threatened to give away just how badly he wanted her. “Ah, God, Sadie,” he murmured when her hands began to roam.

“I know,” she replied, her voice strained, breathless as she pressed kisses to the corner of his mouth, jaw, chin. “I know.”
