Snippet Sunday - Bronco's Rough Ride - Playing the Game

Welcome to the Snippet Sunday on the Weird, the Wild, and the Wicked. Happy Mother's Day to those who are moms. 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.

 Lindsey has laid out the plan for extraction with both Bronco and her handler, but no safe house materialized. Instead, she found a place they could disappear for a while. Now she just has to set the pieces in order and let the game play out.

When she arrived in her suite, she hung John’s suit and unzipped the bag. It wouldn’t fool anyone on close inspection, but in a Club with hundreds of people jostling in strobe lights, he’d look like a decent date for Mistress Black. She’d dated a few others in her term undercover just to give legitimacy to such activities, but she’d never run with a man before.
Here’s hoping I make a decent kidnapper.
She snorted as she sat at her little laptop and typed out a request for her toy to be delivered to her suite that evening. While not common to have a private audience with purchased products, it was allowed upon occasion. This is a great occasion. Lindsey hit enter and headed for the shower. Anything to calm the excitement building as the time approached. She had to be cool or she’d give away the whole game. And I’m not losing this one.

Lindsey is one helluva player. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writing Warrior list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites are Charley Descoteaux, SJ Maylee, Gem Sivad, Goran Zidar, Veronica Scott, and Karla Doyle.

If you're interested in more from Bronco's Rough Ride, here's the 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.

It's now available at Smashwords, Amazon, B&N, and All Romance eBooks. Thanks so much for stopping by and happy reading. :)


  1. She needs to be determined to pull this off. Scary stuff.

  2. Hope she gets through this one! I see her determination clearly in this snippet, so nice job! I'm only participating in Weekend Writing Warriors today, but I always love to see your snippets, Siobhan. Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Her anticipation and tension are palpable---I've been on the edge of my seat with this for the past few months of Sundays, but now that his rescue is so close . . . whew!

  4. No, she can't lose this one. Love the nervous tension in her.

  5. Really enjoyed this book (hope you don't get tired of hearing that LOL, I think I say it every week!) and the anticipation and anxiety definitely ratchet up in this scene. Great snippet!

  6. I can't wait to see what happens next -- and I'm dying to know what I missed.
