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 Chief Todd "Magic" Hunter is finally getting to see Ensign Chris Brickman after he fixed her leg in the field. He's scared he won't like what he finds. This is a true short tease. ;)
Todd “Magic” Hunter lengthened his strides down the hallway of Coronado Medical Center, searching for the nurse’s station. His gut clenched tight and he told himself for the hundredth time Ghost survived. Dammit, if the stupid doctors lost her after he’d managed to clamp her artery shut, he’d tear this place apart.
Breathe, jackass. Fury’s not gonna solve this.
The hospital’s halls sat relatively quiet and vacant in the after-dinner hour and Magic searched for the nurse’s station. No one appeared to be anywhere.
“Where are the fucking nurses?” Todd swung his gaze around the hallway, but no one materialized. He scanned the walls for the nurse rotation board behind the desk and found Brickman listed beside a nurse’s name and the number fifteen. He could almost hear CPO “Rimshot” Stanton’s voice whispering “Target acquired.”
Some of Magic’s tension faded as he approached Ghost’s room. She’d been moved out of the ICU into the main portion of the medical center. Means she’s out of immediate danger. When he reached the door, he paused and took a few deep breaths, nervous. Pussy. Just open the damn door and look in on her. She’s not dead.
Swallowing against the insidious uncertainty, he depressed the door handle and pushed the door slowly open.
