Dangerous Curves/Hot SEALs KW
Medically discharged after a mission gone bad, Navy SEAL Gabriel ‘Hawk’ Barrett regains his sight, and when hired by GAPS and the Knight Agency, most of his self-worth. Assigned to go undercover as a gun for hire, he’s determined to do whatever it takes to complete the mission, but his restraint is tested when his buddy’s hot sister becomes mistakenly involved.
When her brother disappears, coffee shop owner Gina Daye seeks help from his former teams members, only to have the almighty Hawk turn her down. But before she realizes he’s in the middle of an assignment, she’s embroiled in the mission.
Sequestered together to avoid an international incident, the pair face down the enemy, a multitude of bullets, and even more dangerous—their long denied attraction.
As I read through this Kindle World, I see missions gone FUBAR, but none quite like this one.
Gina Daye’s brother Cam, has gone missing. A former SEAL he works security at a museum not exactly a dangerous job. Little does she know, he is working for GAPS on a very sensitive mission as body guard to a prince. She’s hunting down SEALs who know her brother to be sure he’s okay. He’s the only family she has.
Gabriel “Hawk” Barrett’s involvement is to try to infiltrate the prince’s cousin’s organization and take it down. Thus preventing the assassination of the Prince. When Gina walks into the bar that has been designated as the meeting point, things go rapidly downhill.
Chloroformed and kidnapped by the men looking for her brother and the Prince, she is rescued by Hawk and brought to a safe house. After she wakes up and after a scuffle or two with Hawk they manage to have breakfast and some conversation leading up to this scene which is one of my favorites.
“No. It’s good. Let’s eat.” She motioned for him to sit and they spent the next half hour eating, talking about her coffee shop, and cleaning up while being civil.
It was a miracle.
Heaven help her, she liked this side of Hawk. A lot.
“I think we just broke a record,” she told him as she dried the dishes he washed.
He turned to her, a half grin tugging his lips. “Oh? For what?”
“Most minutes together without tearing each other to shreds.”
His smile turned wry. “Will wonders never cease?”
She laughed. “Who knows? I’m just glad you’re not telling me to get the fuck out.”
Shit. Why’d she say that?
Now his smile was gone, and a frowning scowl pinched his face.
“I’m sorry about that, Gina,” he said, wiping his hands before grasping her shoulders. “I was a complete ass to you in the hospital, and you were nothing but kind. You didn’t deserve my bad attitude. You deserved my gratitude. And I am grateful. Thank you for being there for me.”
By the time he finished, Gina could barely breathe. She heard the words and the sincerity with which they were delivered. Watched them fall from his mouth. Still, they were a shock to her system. In a damn good way.
She swallowed past her hot throat and lifted her hand to touch his face, finally getting to say the words she’d wanted to say back then. “You’re my friend, Hawk. Like it or not, I care about you. I’ve got your six. I’ll always have your six.”
His intake of breath hissed between them as he lifted a hand to cup her face and brush away a tear with his thumb. “I don’t deserve it.”
“That’s the problem,” she said as her tears increased. “For some reason, you see yourself as this monster, but your friends don’t see you that way at all.”
A Daye with A SEAL (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Dangerous Curves Series Book 3) (Kindle Locations 637-656). Kindle Worlds. Kindle Edition.
From here things between take a turn for the better. That is until Gina makes a critical mistake starting an avalanche of sorts. But she also has a few surprises for Hawk as well. Lots of action, plenty of twists to keep you turning the pages, and lets not forget the sizzling hot sex!

It’s all my mother’s fault.
She read to me before I could read and opened up that magical world where I still reside today. Then came television and movies. Now I had three avenues that fed my imagination…and boy could I eat! As you no doubt figured out, this lead to my writing career. I’m a NY Times, USA Today, and Amazon Bestselling Award winng author. Phew, that was a mouthful! Multi-published in e-book and print with several publishers, I certainly have a ton of voices in my head.
I’m happily married to a military man for 28 years. We have four children and several rescued cats. Michael’s been in the Army National Guard since before he graduated. The Guard has been a part of our lives right from the start. It was only natural for the military to spill into my writing. God bless the military and their families. Thank you all for your sacrifices. ♥
You already know my mom inspired my love of reading,but it was my dad who got me hooked on movies. Even now, if I had the time, I could happily go from one movie to another all day long. They are the reason I love mixed genre and why I can’t just stick to just one in my writing, although, as you can tell, I have a soft spot for cowboys and the military.
Well, that’s about it. Thanks for getting to know me a little better. Remember, keep reading to your children. The journey you’re igniting is precious. And the next time you’re at the movies, turn around. I just might be the person sitting behind you. No, not the one throwing popcorn (it’s too expensive to waste). I’m the one already imagining the sequel.
Have a great day and thanks for reading!
