What do you get when you put stories about super-alpha male first responders, military heroes, and strong heroines together with a group of award-winning erotic romance authors? Fast-paced tales like the quick-thinking paramedic who rescues a child, a SWAT team leader who saves a rookie, a Special Forces soldier who storms an embassy during a hostile takeover, and more inside HIGH OCTANE HEROES.
When Delilah Devlin put out the call for submissions for HIGH OCTANE HEROES, my Iraq War veteran turned paramedic sprang to life in my imagination. My hero has a hard time readjusting to civilian life, which is reflected in his arid relationships—until he meets the story heroine and finds relief from his demons when he falls in love for the first time.
I hope you enjoy HIGH OCTANE HEROES and my story “Natural Appetites,” which got special mention in RT Book Reviews magazine's Four Star review!
NATURAL APPETITES by Adele Dubois
Mickey glanced at the time on his dashboard, as he slid behind the wheel of his car. “Shit.” He’d missed his after-work drinks date with Madelaine. Again.
He checked his cell. No messages. His spoiled, over-sexed girlfriend warned if he was late one more time, she’d be done with him. With her looks, men offered to crawl through glass to sleep with her. She’d made it clear Mickey could be easily replaced. One stiff cock was as good as another, as far as she was concerned. It would take her all of about five minutes to finish sulking and find a new guy. Maybe two, in ten.
He called her anyway, but Madelaine refused to answer. Mickey swore. He’d miss the luscious mouth that drank him in, slow and steady, like velvet whiskey. And her ass. He’d surely miss that.
His cell phone went dark.
Without a shadow of doubt, Mickey knew he’d just been dumped.
