This is a very special weekend in the United States, set aside to honor the men and women who have served our country in uniform. So, in keeping with Veteran's Day, I've chosen this snippet from the third book in the Lothario series, LOVE ME TWICE. Both heroes in this book are ex-military. Sean Callahan is a West Point graduate, and Drew Whitcomb is an Annapolis grad. They don't always see eye to eye!
Sean kicked against the pool wall and propelled his body toward the opposite end. He did it without conscious effort. Years of routine made swimming laps as effortless as breathing. This was his time to think every day. Some people meditated, some sat behind closed doors to find their own time, but the pool had been his choice since his teenage years.
Drew thought it was the ultimate irony; the Army dirt-eater who loved the water. Sean didn’t care what the slimy squid thought, he wasn’t going to change his ways because some fucking Navy SEAL found humor in it.
His arms moved mechanically, freeing his mind to examine whatever was foremost in his thoughts. Today, Celeste held all his attention, and the fact that he’d made a devil’s bargain with Drew. In a few short hours, he’d turn Celeste over to his best fucking friend. He’d kill the son-of-a-bitch if he touched her. His blood heated, and he was surprised the pool water didn’t boil.
Here's what others are saying about LOVE ME TWICE -
"...romance that is hotter than molten lava and an interesting man hunt all in one story!"
"Love, passion and scorching love scenes made this book an engaging read."
Sean Callahan came aboard to do his brother Ryan a favor, and ended up the man in charge when both Ryan and Richard left the ship with the women they love. The last thing he needs is a complication, and Celeste is definitely a complication.
Once upon a time Celeste had been part of his team as well as his lover, but after a disaster of a mission, and the realization that the other member of his team, Drew was in love with her too, she'd disappeared. Now she was back, and Sean was trapped on the Lothario, his brother's floating bordello, with the woman he still loves, as well as Drew.
Some women have all the luck. Celeste just isn't one of them. All the luck she seems to have is the bad kind. How else can you explain ending up on a ship with the two men she's tried to forget for the last five years? Even worse, not a thing has changed. She still loves them both. Leaving them behind only postponed the decision she knows she has to make. Celeste has one week to choose between Sean and Drew, or tell both of them goodbye, this time for good.
