Call to Honor: A SEAL Brotherhood Novel, #1
by Tawny Weber
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
“No man left behind” is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing— Diego’s honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers…and only one woman has them.
Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger’s path
Harper curled her fingers around the rigid hardness of his bicep. She knew she couldn’t circle the impressive muscles. But, dammit, she needed something to hold on to.
Breath shaky with need and her body turning into a puddle of sensations, she could only whimper when he slowly pulled his mouth from hers.
She could barely think. She could only stare into those intense, dark eyes, watching and wondering what he was thinking. Wishing he’d kiss her again.
More, she wanted to beg. So much more. But she couldn’t find her voice.
Just as well, she realized as a few of her brain cells reengaged. She’d feel like an idiot saying that aloud.
Admitting need aloud.
“Look, that probably wasn’t a very good idea.”
Well, that cleared her head. Harper blinked away the lust from her vision to study Diego’s face. She could see the echo of his words in his eyes.
She frowned. It was one thing for her to have doubts, but she didn’t like knowing he had them, too.
“Why not? Unless you’re actually in some sort of committed relationship with another person, which would definitely put you off-limits,” she conceded with a wave of her hand.
“Of course I’m not. I wouldn’t have kissed you if I was,” he grumbled, looking so offended that she had to smile. He wasn’t the kind of man who’d lie or cheat.
She’d had no idea how sexy that was. How attracted she could be to the idea of honor in a man.
“Are you not attracted to me? Is that why you don’t like the idea?” Not exactly a pleasant thought, but she’d rather face the truth now and spend the next two weeks bandaging her ego.
“You’re kidding, right? You’re hot enough to melt glass, babe. I could be deaf, dumb and blind, and I’d still be attracted to you.”
Those words trembled through Harper’s body, stirring delight and passion and the sort of excitement she’d never felt before. The sort that guaranteed more pleasure than she’d ever felt before. The sort that promised more than just orgasms.
And he thought she was going to let it go without a fight?
“Then what’s your reason?” She arched her brow at his silence. “I think I deserve to know.”
“I’m not a relationship kind of guy,” he said. Apology and warning mingled together, overlaying the implacableness of his tone.
“That works. I’m not interested in a relationship.”
