Snippet Sunday - Bronco's Rough Ride - Bound and Silent

Welcome to the Snippet Sunday on the Weird, the Wild, and the Wicked. Thank you so much for visiting. If you choose to comment today, I really appreciate it. The snippets are from my upcoming release, Bronco's Rough Ride, a military romantic suspense set in Las Vegas. It's a prequel to The Navy's Ghost, set 10 years earlier. No paranormal critters in this one, though there's plenty of kick-ass adventure and hot sex. You can read last week's snippet HERE.

Chief Petty Officer John "Bronco" Andrews is stuck in a cell somewhere in Vegas and he can't move his body at all. Two women come into the cell and are talking over him like he's a product. The older-looking of the two is trying to get the financial sponsorship from the one named Aislynn.

Aislynn nodded. “And who is this?”

“This is one of our latest acquisitions.”

“Acquisitions?” She raised an elegant eyebrow. “You don’t appreciate the male of the species?”

“On the contrary. I highly appreciate them.” The older woman leaned close, the cloying scent of her perfume swamping John’s nose. “Especially when they’re docile and immobile. The best man is bound and silent, am I right?”

Oh, that woman is diabolical. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writing Warrior list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites are Anastasia Vitsky, SJ Maylee, Gem Sivad, Goran Zidar, Zee Monodee, Veronica Scott, and Karla Doyle.

If you're interested in more from Bronco's Rough Ride, here's the tentative blurb:

What happens in Vegas, stays in the heart...

Chief Petty Officer John "Bronco" Andrews only meant to stay one night in Vegas for a little R&R before resuming his duties as a US Navy SEAL in Coronado. But someone slips him a mickey in the bar and he finds himself in Madame LeBeau's sex trade. As the product. Doped up on ketamine to keep him docile, Bronco has no choice but to let it ride.

Detective Lindsey Jarvis has been undercover in LeBeau's sex slave racket for two years and she almost has enough evidence to take it down. Between abduction, prostitution, and murder, she has LeBeau by the short hairs. All she needs is a "product". John is the perfect witness if she can get him out before the drugs shut down his heart. Then she'll be free to start a normal life.

Lindsey doesn't count on her overwhelming attraction for Bronco or her need to see him through detox. But she's a cop in Vegas and he's a Navy SEAL, two lifestyles with too much unpredictability to maintain a relationship. Neither have time for more than one wild rough ride, and what happens in Vegas, stays. Forever.

The release date is March 21 and it will be available at Smashwords, Amazon, and All Romance eBooks. Thanks so much for stopping by and happy reading. :)


  1. Holy COW, this is intense, Siobhan.

    And the crime isn't any less terrible with a male victim---i hope he's rescued before anything happens to him!

  2. Very diabolical--sort of like Cat Woman. Great snippet!

  3. So nice to see women being the villains!

  4. Uh-oh. He's in a load of trouble. Worried for him:(

  5. Very intense, can't wait to read the entire book. Great excerpt!

  6. Wow, nice role reversal. Be interested in his reaction.

  7. hahaha! What a fun snippet! Well,, maybe not so fun for "Bronco". Great premise.

    How on earth do you do it, Siobhan? You release book after book, story after story. Great job! :-)
