DELI'S TAKE OUT, Bad Boys of Beta Squad, Book 4 is available now, but even better, it's available in PAPER too. It has direct ties to Rimshot's Hard Target and Darwin's Evolution.
In this snippet, we start in Caroline's POV. Caroline runs the Last Chance Dog Sanctuary in north central California and she has to calm down her charges now that the excitement is over.
She let herself into the kennel building and breathed deeply to calm her energy. She’d often been called a lola-granola hippy for her description of energy, but the dogs were more sensitive to unspoken cues than most humans, and they knew when she was upset.
“All right, everyone. We’re okay. The intruders are gone and we’re okay.” She spoke in a calm measured voice and the barking slowed. “That’s it. We’re okay. You all did a good job in protecting us.”
The barking diminished and tails began to wag. She checked on each occupant in the kennels before she headed out to the dog runs. Two dogs had been in the runs when the SUVs arrived, but only a shivering bluetick coonhound with his tail clamped to his hindquarters greeted her.
Oh dear, where’s Sergeant Trace?
She moved to the empty dog run found the gate unlatched. Dammit, not again! She shot a look toward the forest. I’ll have to move fast if I want to catch her. She spun and headed back to the house to grab a leash, hoping the dog didn’t hurt anyone on her walkabout.
There's always that one guy who won't take no for an answer. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list, the Snippet Sunday Facebook group, and the Rainbow Snippets Facebook group. A few of my favorites are, P.T. Wyant, Karen Michelle Nutt, Veronica Scott, Jessica Subject, Kathy Griffith Karysa Faire, and Iris Blobel.
Here's the blurb for DELI'S TAKE OUT:
CPO Eugene “Deli” Rubenovich has hit his limit. After his friend is gravely injured on a mission, Deli takes leave to clear his head. He wants the great outdoors, fresh air, hiking, and maybe a beer or two. What he gets is a 5-on-1 bar fight and cartel thugs trying to forcibly take a woman’s home. And then there’s the bear.
Caroline Atherton has a quiet life she loves as the owner of Last Chance Dog Sanctuary, where she rehabilitates dogs like Sergeant Trace to return to civilian life. When a simple shopping trip goes awry, a handsome Navy Chief winds up nursing a concussion after defending her from a pack of idiot males.
Deli’s not used to being rescued, but the beautiful woman who heals dogs makes it an experience worth repeating. She’s says she’s got no room in her life for pushy men, but the cartel gets nasty, and Caroline needs help defending her home and her dogs.
Enlisting assistance from the Ultimate Recon crew to take out the enemy is just another day for Deli, but to win Caroline’s heart? He’ll need every skill in his arsenal for that mission.
So much for taking a vacation.
