Bad Boys of Romance Hop!!

The "Bad Boys" of Romance Giveaway Hop hosted by

You know you love them. Those "bad boys" of romance. 

We're celebrating them and all their naughty deliciousness with the Bad Boys of Romance Giveaway Hop! Mmmmhmmm. 

Even "good boys" have a bad boy streak! Meet the boys of SOCOM. In their line of work, you have to have some bad boy traits to survive!

Excerpt from Chasing Victory:

Tristan woke to the whop, whop, whop, sound of helicopter blades getting louder as the team approached. He sat up rubbing the sleep from his eyes, and got out of his car the same time the helicopter touched down. The door to the helicopter opened and Noah jumped from it.

Seconds later the engine shut down, the blades spooled to a stop, and Logan got out of the pilot seat.

“Tell me it’s so, Jack said that I would be driving your Porsche.” Noah knew the car was Tristan’s prize possession.

“That’s right, and if I find one scratch or dent on her you’re a dead man,” Tristan threatened.

“Don’t worry I’ll take good care of her,” he teased as he patted the hood of the shiny sports car.

“Okay kids, we’re kind of pressed for time here so let’s get to it,” Logan said.

“Always the party pooper,” Noah joked. “I know I’m only here to baby sit. At least tell me she’s pretty.”

“Keep her safe Noah. Remember the Winters are a very prominent and influential family,” Tristan said.

“Yeah, yeah, I’ll be good. Give me the details.”

Tristan spent the next ten minutes reviewing the packet of information he put together over the last couple of days pertaining to all three of the Winters women. He included pictures and every detail, right down to the personalities of every Doberman. He pulled out all the information on Payton and put it together.

“This should be everything you need. I don’t know how much detail Wyatt decided you should give her, but Payton seems pretty together. Naturally she will be shaken at first, but I believe she will be more than willing to work with you to help get her sister back safely.” Tristan said.

“Alright then, I guess I’m off. Ah, Tristan, keys? I don’t want the bad guys to beat me to her,” Noah said.

“Remember what I said,” Tristan threatened as he tossed the keys into Noah’s outstretched hand.

“No problem. Man, I’ve been waiting forever to drive this baby. You guys take care. See you back at the ranch.” Noah grabbed his gear, threw it into the back of the Porsche, jumped into the driver’s seat and started the engine. A huge smile spread across his face as he put the car in gear and peeled out of the field.

“Jesus, Tristan. You really think you’ll get that car back?” Logan said shaking his head.

“I damn well better, and in the same shape it left this field, or he’ll be sorry he was ever born. Let me grab my gear and we can head out.”
