Feature and Giveaway: A SEAL's Salvation by Tawny Weber


Subject: Navy SEAL Petty Officer Brody Lane

Current Status: On leave

Obstacle: The one girl who was off-limits…

Where Navy SEAL “Bad Ass” Brody Lane goes, trouble follows. Being run out of his hometown years ago for misbehaving with Genna Reilly—the sheriff’s daughter—was one thing. Now Brody is about to step into real danger. Not the suggestive letters he’s been exchanging with Genna, but the kind of trouble that can send a soldier home injured and broken inside…

Genna’s entire life has been orchestrated by her family. The right job. The right friends. Enough! Brody’s return offers the promise of lust-filled pleasures. Of flesh teased and tasted. She’s not expecting to find a soldier with distant eyes who has secluded himself from the world. But this good girl knows exactly how to bring a bad boy back to life…

This was it.

A chance she’d been dreaming about off and on for over ten years. A lot more on than off since she and Brody had started exchanging letters.

She didn’t know what she felt.

Excitement, definitely. Brody Lane was her fantasy guy. He inspired feelings, reactions, emotions that she had no business thinking. At least, not while his gramma was watching.

She looked over her shoulder again to check.

Yep. Gramma was watching.

She tried to think nice thoughts instead. Good girl thoughts. Like dating. That was a possibility, right?

It wasn’t as if he was off-limits anymore, either.

He was a hero.

The mayor wanted to throw him a parade.

Even her parents couldn’t object to her dating a military hero, could they?

Not that she was counting on Brody’s wanting to date her. Sexy letters aside, it wasn’t as if they knew each other. Not really. And then there was the fact that their one and only kiss had gotten him corralled into the navy.

But who knew. Maybe all that postal flirting was going to turn into something else. There, Genna decided. Nice, delusional thoughts. Totally appropriate to entertain in front of his gramma.

Inspired, she knocked again. This time with enough force to actually make noise.

There was a loud thump inside, then the scraping sound of wood against wood.

Her stomach tumbled over itself.

She stood straighter, pulled back her shoulders and took a deep breath. The move had never done a thing to make her breasts look bigger, but a girl could hope.

The door opened.

Oh, please, let the whimpering sigh be in her head and not aloud.

Oh, my.

The years had been kind, indeed, to Brody Lane.

Even as his expression folded into a scowl when he realized she wasn’t who he’d expected to see at his door, she couldn’t stop staring.

It was as if Mother Nature had looked at the perfection that had been him at nineteen and decided to add a few layers of oh, baby gorgeousness to her work of art.

Arresting before with its sharp planes and brooding features, his face was more intense now. Even sharper, despite being unshaven and shadowed. His eyes were just as striking, like molten gold.
They’d always been distant, except when he’d smiled. But now there was a chasm there, as though he was watching from miles away. Assessing. Her, the situation, their past, present and future, all without blinking.

It was kinda scary. Not sure what he was seeing, or more important, what he thought about what he was seeing, Genna bit her lip.

It was nerves as much as curiosity that made her peel her gaze from his to check out his body. And what a body it was.

Broad and muscular, his chest and shoulders looked as though they were sculpted from marble under his black tee. He still had that lean build, his waist tapering to slender hips.

Her eyes dropped lower and she gulped.

Oh, my, the blue cotton sweatpants did nothing to hide the muscle between his legs, either.

Little dots danced in front of her eyes. She realized she’d forgotten to breath.

A gulp of air cleared the dizziness, but the tingling didn’t go away.

He was… Wow.

The things he could do with that body, she’d bet they were nothing short of amazing. And she wasn’t just talking military things. Her mouth was dry and she was starting to feel a little dizzy again.

So she forced her gaze to climb back up to his face.

His unwelcoming scowl had turned into a ferocious frown.

She wrinkled her nose. She should have kept checking out the bod. He obviously wasn’t thrilled to have company.

So what else was new?

“Hi, Brody. I brought you some cookies.” As greetings went, it was lame. But she added her best smile. When that had no reaction, she held up the plate as proof. And, yes, as a bribe.

He didn’t even look at the plate. Her lips threatened to drop into a pout.

“Um, it’s me. Genna.” She paused, brows arched. She tried a friendly smile that was only a little shaky with nerves. When he didn’t even blink, she swallowed hard, then added, “Joe’s sister.”

Your favorite pen pal, she wanted to say. But given his reaction so far, she was a little afraid to bring that up.

Genna waited. After five seconds, her smile dimmed. At thirty, she was straight-up frowning. Knowing a glare was imminent at sixty, she crossed her arms over her chest, the cookie plate hitting her in the shoulder, and lifted her chin.

“Well? Aren’t you even going to say hello?”

Now her scowl matched his.

So much for dating. She couldn’t even get the guy to talk to her.
