My Sexy Saturday- Ice and Peace- The Cold Warriors Universe Sneak Peek

Summer is in full swing as we start our second month of My Sexy Saturday. Join us each Saturday where you can expect to have your senses tickled with hot snippets, tame to sensual to explicit, from authors near and far.

We all have our own idea of sexy and readers of all kinds love to read what we offer. One doesn’t always have to take their clothes off for something to be sexy and hot.

Sexy can be the touch of his hand on her neck as he pulls her closer to give a heart stopping kiss.

Sexy can be a slow, sensual game of strip poker as someone expose’s their wares one piece at a time.

Sexy can be that special someone as you think of him making you all hot and bothered with anticipation of what’s to come.

Sexy can be hard, earth-shattering wall-banging in the most unlikely of places...like the back of that limo.

It all depends upon your perspective.

Come join us each Saturday as we bring you, the reader, the best in sexy writing.  Our theme this week is seven.  Seven words, sentences or paragraphs.  I posted that below but you know I could not resist giving you more!

The final edits are in and Ice and Peace- The Cold Warriors Universe will be out soon.  I know you've all been waiting so here is a sneak peek!

“Sir,” a soft voice, feminine and sweet, beckoned his attention. He knew the voice, like he knew himself. His heart skipped a beat.

Rising slowly from his chair, Keegan cleared his throat and straightened his uniform. Suddenly, the room seemed unbearably long as he walked the three feet or so to be near her.

As he took in every detail of her, he was stunned silent. She wore a Marine Corps uniform with Navy insignia, with her hair neatly pinned off her neck and shoulders. Her clothes were pressed with a crease that could cut a major artery and her demeanor was impeccable. Something was not right.

Still, Caitlin was a sight for sore eyes. She was beautiful. Her petite frame was perfectly accented by the curves of her figure. And her brown eyes and coffee-brown skin was smooth, creamy.

Standing at attention, she did not meet his gaze. Though it was customary not to do as a sign of military courtesy, he could tell she was not doing it for that reason. Her gaze was different. Circling her, he tried to see if he could catch her watching him out of the corner of her eye.In fact, she appeared to be staring blankly ahead. 

Peering directly at her, he spoke in a soft tone. “At ease.”

She relaxed. 

“Cate. Can you hear me?” 

“Yes, sir,” she responded mechanically. 

Pain pierced his insides. She was definitely not there. Keegan placed his hands on his hips and hung his head in defeat. The one thing that was supposed to go right did not. For whatever reason, they had placed her in a deeper state of mental control than she’d ever been in. He controlled the hostile emotions brewing with him. Touching her face gently, he felt her icy skin.

This is unacceptable! Not here. I will not let this happen here. Not under my command.
“Chief, listen up,” he said in an authoritative tone. He knew in this state, it was the only way he could speak to her and still have her respond.

“Yes, sir.” Her gaze became even more distant.   And the robot-like response fueled his anger. “You are going to hightail it down to the doc and receive a full examination. Tell him it is based on my orders. He will know what to do. Is that clear?”

“Yes, sir.”

Knowing that she was under the influence of cryo neurotransmitters, Keegan figured the only way to combat it was to get someone to reverse it. They usually wore off once she was away from the stimulus triggers for a long period of time. But considering her stimulus triggers were high-ranking officers in uniform and combat situations, being around here meant she was going to be in a drone zone for a very long time. The last thing he needed was a zombie on board, especially one in charge of the lives others.

Only the jerks in psyche warfare thought doing this to someone would be a good idea. As long as he was running the ship, none of that would be allowed. There weren’t going to be any super zombies soldiers on board his ship. And he’d rollover in his grave before he let them do it to his wife.

“After you come back from the doc, you will report to me, understood?”

“Yes, sir.”

“Are there any questions?”

“No, sir.”


She did an about face before leaving the room. Keegan clasped his hands behind his back. In the blink of an eye, his joy had turned to sorrow. Now faced with the responsibility of looking after his wife, he wondered how could he handle the burden of command and still protect the woman he loved.
