I have to confess that I really love Rafe from STAY THE NIGHT and since many of you don’t do Facebook, you’ll have missed him during last week’s #ManWars so I’m sharing him with you today.
What I love about Rafe is that he’s a big strong Navy Seal and seemingly invincible and yet inside, he’s so vulnerable and so in love, but battling it out of fear of being rejected. He feels as if he’s been left behind in the five years that he’s been at war while his wife has become someone whom he barely recognizes.
I also loved tackling a story where the romance is about two people who are already married. Let’s face it. Marriages have ups and downs and you can fall in love all over again sometimes.
You’ll see more of Rafe and his wife Elena in ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE that I hope to have out for you in mid-February. That is if I can get past post-holiday blues and work issues. I’ve been outlining the story and hashing out some language with my daughter. She liked what she heard, so I hope that’s a good thing.
In the meantime, I hope you like sexy Navy Seal Rafe.
STAY THE NIGHT is available for pre-order at various retailers and will be available on December 15. It’s the next book – #4 – in the Take a Chance series.
I have so loved writing these stories about military heroes risking it all for a night that may lead to a lifetime of love and passion. I hope you’ve been enjoying the series as well. If you haven’t checked it out yet, your best bet is the Take a Chance Box Set which is only 2.99. That’s 99 cents per novella.
STAY THE NIGHT is a story about Rafe Castillo, a Navy Seal who has been away at war for five years and finds himself coming home to a woman who has changed drastically since the day he married her. Rafe still loves Elena, but he’s not sure if she’s still in love with him and whether there is a place in her life any more. She’s accomplished so much and he feels as if she’s passed him by.
In this scene, Rafe is on his way home and remembering the very first time that he and Elena made love. Warning – this scene is for mature audiences. If you can’t read the excerpt below, click here to read this teaser from Stay the Night.
