Too sexy to resist?

Danielle Andrews was supposed to be on her honeymoon. Instead, she's back on Discovery Island licking her wounds and running for shelter when she sees Daeg Ross coming her way. Years ago, on this very beach, Dani started something with the special ops aviation rescue swimmer. But she refuses to be tempted by the wickedly hot military hunk again.

Daeg Ross is used to jumping into treacherous waters. But his feelings for relationship-shy Dani are a whole new type of risk. They are volatile—and irresistible. When their lives are threatened by the invading winds and endless rain of a tropical storm, Daeg and Dani are forced to take shelter and ride out a wild night. Together, will they sink…or swim?

Uniformly Hot! The few, the proud, the sexy as hell!

Excerpt – Wicked Sexy

Standing there on the beach, staring up at him, Dani Andrews looked confused, as if she wasn’t sure if she wanted to haul off and hit him—or if she’d decided he wasn’t worth the bother. She certainly knew who he was. After all, she’d come over from the mainland and spent every summer at her grandparents’ place for as long as he’d been on the island. She’d worked at the ice cream joint at the end of the boardwalk, making cones, and he’d eaten his weight in ice cream just for the excuse to chat her up some. Those brown eyes of hers looked decidedly less friendly by the minute, her head already shaking back and forth. Or maybe that was the effect of the wind picking up as the storm offshore gathered steam.

“Daeg Ross,” she said and, from the way she pronounced his name, she was still plenty upset about how their last encounter ended ten years ago.

He, meanwhile, still wanted to kiss her and kiss her and that was the problem, wasn’t it?

He’d already kissed her—just once—all those years ago, not too far from this very spot. Fresh out of the search and rescue training program, he’d had two weeks’ leave before he shipped out to the Middle East. Cal's family had been the closest thing to family Daeg had; his own father had never been part of the picture and he'd lost his mother in a car accident a few years before. So, when his leave came up, returning to Discovery Island had seemed natural.

It had been prom night when he'd last seen Dani and she’d been seventeen—too young for the likes of him, ice cream aside. He hadn’t been the one to take her to prom—she hadn’t asked and honestly, he didn’t even know if she knew his name, although he’d caught her looking at him a few times. Prom night he’d found her walking alone on the beach. She hadn’t started out the evening alone and they both knew it.

One look at her sad, disappointed face and he’d broken every rule in his book right then and there.

  1. can i say everything about a man in uniform is

  2. I love their confidence and aggressive stance when in uniform. They usually show off their strong, sexy physique too.

  3. their confidence and the way the uniform fits so fantastically, just the way the hold themselves is hot

  4. usually they are in good physical condition - ;)

  5. They tend to be in great shape, have confidence in their abilities, and in my mind, typically are good men who wear the figurative white hat.

  6. What's not to love about a man in uniform? One the reasons I enjoyed my years in the Army...I got to with hot men in uniform everyday!!

  7. Definitely their confidence and commitment to the country!

  8. I think it is their confidence, control of themselves (mentally and physically), their commitment to what that uniform stands for and to their fellow servicemen and women. Plus, they alter those uniforms to fit perfect, allowing us to daydream about what is underneath!

  9. It is the aggressive side of him! They mean business!

  10. I ride the train to and from work a couple of days a week and I'll second what you all have said about the way a soldier holds himself! There's a definite walk and air of confidence.

  11. First off their integrity and commitment to our country and willingness to sacrifice for our freedom. That said, who can ignore the fact that they have to stay in wonderful shape.

  12. It is that they are serving the country and putting themselves in danger to do it.

  13. No matter the uniform our men & women put on thry wear them with pride. That pride shows in how they treat & act towards everyone from the babies to the elderly and animals. That makes men and women in uniform gorgeous& sexy to me.

  14. He is trustworthy, pillar of strength and enjoy the how sexy he looks in that uniform. Thanks for the chance.
