Exclusive Excerpt from Julie Ann Walker’s “Hot At Hell” from Way of the Warrior

The low growl at the back of Michael’s throat seemed to reverberate in the achy spot between Harper’s legs, making her keenly aware of its hollow emptiness. And when his beard rasped her cheeks, she was reminded of how deliciously scratchy his face had been against the inside of her thighs…when he’d licked and sucked her to completion.

Had she really thought once would be enough with this man? Had she seriously contemplated letting her head rule her hormones and saying no to another go around? What was she? Crazy?

Yup. She was crazy. Crazy horny. Crazy w—

“Jesus, woman,” Michael whispered into her mouth when Harper pulled his shirttail from the waistband of his cargo pants. “I love the way you taste.”

“Mmm,” she hummed between kisses. “You taste pretty good yourself, sailor.” And he did. The inside of his mouth was a combination of Kill Cliff—the sweet energy drink the SEALs swigged by the gallon—hot desert air, and heroism.

In case you were wondering, heroism had a flavor. And it went by the name of Michael “Mad Dog” Wainwright.


Once again the word whispered through her overheated brain. And she realized that for right now, for this one small moment, he wasn’t just any warrior, he was her warrior.

Fumbling with the buttons on his shirt, she continued to devour his mouth, sucking, licking, laving, moaning when he met her caress for caress. She pulled back when she could spread the two halves wide. And there it was…

The miles upon miles of his hot, hard, tanned flesh.

Her hands smoothed over the crinkly hair that grew in the space between his bulging pectoral muscles and flat brown nipples, following it as it narrowed into a thin line down his flat belly before disappearing inside his pants. His corrugated stomach muscles flexed and quivered under her fingertips, and she delighted at the sight, could have gone on rubbing her palms over him forever. But there was something else she needed to get her hands on. Right now…

About “Hot At Hell”

He’s everything she swore she’d never love…
Harper Searcy knows a thing or two about Navy SEALs.  One, they’re all about the adrenaline high and not about settling down. And two, they’re hot as hell.

She’s the one woman he refuses to let go.
When Michael “Mad Dog” Wainwright gets the call that terrorists have taken over the embassy where Harper works, he’s determined to save her life… and steal her heart. But when it comes to weapons, warfare, and women, all bets are off.
