From Prussia With Love, book 1 in the Victoria’s Secret Agents series, releases today from Loose Id! Squee! To celebrate I’m sharing another snippet and there’s also a give-away.
Clara Redbeck has one goal: to prove to the sods at work—and to herself—that the best man for the job can be a woman. To do that, she must prevent a traitor from blowing London to bits. If only the dashing first mate of the dirigible she’d been tasked to plunder didn’t set her aflame.
Garrett Dewhurst has one goal: to execute the coup of a lifetime. His plans do not include a spanking dalliance with the most intriguing woman he has ever met.
With each encounter, the fire between them burns hotter and their need grows stronger. Finally, the cramped cabin aboard the Bismarck becomes their intimate playground, where Garrett introduces Clara to the pleasure of submission and they explore their passion in every way possible.
Clara and Garrett want a future together, but each holds a secret that if revealed could cost them everything. When danger closes in, they have to choose between protecting themselves or the whole of London.
And here is today’s Teaser Tuesday snippet:
Clara and Garrett have begun their tour of the dirigible. As he guides her through all the different areas-far slower than she wants to go-he uses every opportunity to assist her. And of course his assistance involves offering a helping hand or two;). We’re in Clara’s point of view.
The touch went both ways, and she had to hang on to her tingling nerves. “Can we see the cargo hold next?”
He flattened his lips. A hint of suspicion flickered in his eyes. “Why would you want to see a bunch of boxes stacked on skids?”
She waved him off. “I don’t want to gape at the individual boxes, silly. I want to see how you managed to squish all the cargo into the bay, and I want to see it all in one place.” She smiled. “Remember? It’s all about the size for me.”
He narrowed his gaze and tilted his head as he studied her. Darkness filled his green eyes for a second but then cleared again, and his lips twitched as if to cover his mental misstep. “There are plenty of things aboard the Bismarck that have a girth impressive enough to warrant your admiration.”
She stepped closer until they were only inches apart. “And I’m more than happy to admire them all. But first I really, really want to see the cargo bay.” Clara rested her hands against his chest, the feel of it sending sparks through her body. She rose to her toes until their lips nearly touched. “I’m sure it’s gigantic.”
Satisfaction shot through her at the fires gleaming in his eyes. She held her position for a moment longer and then sank back onto her soles. “Let’s go.”
He studied her. “It appears we’re headed toward the cargo hold. I’m rather curious to find out if this particular big thing lives up to all your expectations.”
She arched her brows. “Color me excited to find out.”
“What else excites you?”
“Wouldn’t you like to know?”
He set his hand on top of hers and captured her gaze. “There are a number of things I would like to know.” The tension between them thickened. For a moment it was as if his presence occupied all the space in the deserted corridor they’d ended up in. She grew breathless.
