The purpose here is to spotlight a few lines or a few paragraphs from a new release or backlisted title. This way my readers get to sample some delicious snippets and I'll do my best to tease, titillate and tantalize you into the weekend.
Today I'm teasing with book 2 in the Bad Boys of Beta Squad series, THE NAVY'S GHOST. This is a menage a'SEALs and Ensign Christiana Brickman isn't pleased with the knowledge that she's out of the Teams. However, her luck's about to change.
“There is some good news.” She met Whittleton’s gaze, his sympathy underlying the words.
“There is, sir?” Damn, had her voice cracked? She needed some water. She quickly scanned the room, but she found nothing, not even a vase of flowers.
“Yes. As soon as Master Chief Castle heard you were injured, he put in the request for you to be transferred to the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training facility here. He wants you as an instructor as soon as you’re fully recovered.”
The lieutenant commander waited for her reaction and Chris struggled to find coherence.
“An instructor, sir?” Is he serious?
“Yes, training the new BUD/S recruits.”
Chris’s mind shifted to Master Chief Castle. He requested me? Surprise slid through her, pushing back the pain a little. The master chief had never given any indication he valued the “Little Navy Jane” in all the time she’d been there. Last she’d seen him, he’d saluted her ironically as he’d pinned her new ribbons to her chest. As the chief instructor for the BUD/S training in Coronado, he chose who would serve under him and it was a short list. She’d never been able to read him even after leaving his ‘tender mercies’ four years earlier.
“Are you sure, sir?”
“Pardon, Ensign?” Whittleton blinked.
“Do you think it’s a good idea for me to be an instructor, sir?”
“Why wouldn’t it be?”
“I’m a woman, sir. It was bad enough when I was a recruit. Do you see the new recruits, green and cocky for being chosen for BUD/S training, taking a woman instructor seriously, sir?”
“Why wouldn’t they, Brickman?”
She said nothing for a long time.
“Are you afraid, Ensign?” Whittleton demanded.
“I said, are you afraid of some green and cocky recruits?”
“No, sir, I’m not afraid.”
“Good to hear, Ensign. As soon as you’re cleared for physical therapy, you’ll start your rehabilitation and Instructor’s school. You’ll learn the ropes from Command Master Chief Castle though you still report to me.”
“Aye aye, Lt. Commander, sir.”
