#SixSunday 57 Gotta love a man with a plan... #HerForbiddenHero

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm crazy excited this week to share with you the first excerpt from my brand new contemporary romance novel HER FORBIDDEN HERO!!! (Betty is the nickname for his '67 Mustang...)
Marco stepped out of the shower and pulled on his jeans and T-shirt for work, a plan forming in his mind. No more chitchatting with her, no more rides in Betty, no more letting her hug him—that one was critical.

Simple as pie.

After all, he’d been in the United States Army Special Forces, fuck you very much. You might take the man out of the SF, but you couldn’t take the SF out of the man. He’d been up against some of the world’s meanest and toughest, so goddamn straight he could work his way around one young woman.

Should be totally easy, don't you think? *winks*

Oh, and meet Italian actor Giulio Berruti, my inspiration behind hero Marco Vieri!!!

Awesome six! His personality comes through clearly, and I have a feeling this woman will be quite the challenge for him. :)

I love when a brave man crumbles into stupidity over one young woman :)
Looks like a lot of fun!

Great six, Laura!

Yeaahh- He's a dead man! lol Great six, Laura!

Joya said...

Somehow I'm guessing that the military has in no way prepared him to deal with her. Nice six, Laura. Can't wait to read this book. :)

Melinda Dozier said...

He is gorgeous! Love that he said fuck you very much. Couldn't stop lughing. He's a goner.

skyewarren said...

Oh man... I clenched a little when he was all "fuck you very much", if you know what I mean. What can I say? Damn. Hot.

Karen Michelle Nutt said...

Christine Warner said...

LOL...he's all confidence and I like that...but I don't think his plan is going to work!

Great six Laura :)

Laura Kaye said...

LOL Hmm. You all don't seem to have very much confidence in my hero! ;)

Joanne Stewart said...

hehe. Famous last words. He sounds like one of those heroes you love to watch fall (for the heroine, that is). Excellent snippet!

Tina said...

Oh, I love it. Can't wait to read this! Great six as usual, Laura. Yummy, yummy hero. ;)

Ann Swann said...

Oh, he's in trouble, I can tell that just from the desperation in his voice LOL.

Damn! This excerpt is hot. He's hot. Every thing's hot!!!

Susan W. said...

This book is next up on my Kindle to read! Love a man who names his car! Especially if it's a classic like a 67 Mustang, my favorite car!

Sandra Sookoo said...

Sounds like one tough customer. Nice job!

Monica Enderle Pierce said...

Now does he *really* think going against a bunch of armed-to-the-teeth Afghani rebels even remotely compares to a woman's charms? Pish. He's sunk.

Cara Bristol said...

I so like his voice -- sounds just like a guy. Adding this to my TBR list. BTW, I noticed this is ranked quite high on Amazon -- and it JUST came out. Wow! Congratulations.

Gem Sivad said...

Well the big guy is running scared, lol. Another great six!

Aurian said...

Hmm he doesn't need to towel dry first? Nice and slowly?

patonlorraine said...

Haha, I love his "plan." Somehow I don't think it'll work out that way. ;)

Veronica Scott said...

Oh, I think he's going to find himself outclassed this time LOL. Enjoyed the character's voice - great six!

Laura Kaye said...

LOL Thanks for all the fun comments everyone! And thanks, Cara! The book's really taking off and it's so exciting! :)

Sophia Rose said...

Um, yeah! Tell me how that works out for you big guy.

LOL!
