Navy Seal Rescue by Susan Cliff

Don’t miss Susan Cliff’s NAVY SEAL RESCUE. Today Susan talks about wounded heroes…

I’ve always had a thing for wounded heroes in romance novels. Give me a bloody warrior on the battlefield, a mysterious stranger with a head injury, or a desperate outlaw in need of a doctor. I love it when the heroine rescues the hero and nurses him back to health. This setup can generate a lot of tension and intimacy.

I’ve always had a thing for wounded heroes in romance novels. Give me a bloody warrior on the battlefield, a mysterious stranger with a head injury, or a desperate outlaw in need of a doctor. I love it when the heroine rescues the hero and nurses him back to health. This setup can generate a lot of tension and intimacy.

In Navy SEAL Rescue, I start with a wounded hero. William Hudson has been beaten, tortured and held captive in Iraq. My heroine, Dr. Layah Anwar, helps him escape.

Here’s an exclusive excerpt from the beginning of the story. If you like it, feel free to enter my giveaway by commenting on this post. I have 5 print copies available (US only).  

Excerpt:

She paused in the doorway. Hudson sat at the edge of the bed, hands folded in his lap. His trousers molded to his long legs and the polo shirt stretched tight across his shoulders. She found no fault with his appearance. He looked good. His hair was a honey-brown shade, like his eyes, and his skin had the same warm tone.

He was handsome. Striking, even.

She entered the room and placed her things on the table. “How do you feel?” she asked, aiming for a polite, professional tone.

“Almost human.”

“Any pain from your suture site?”

“Not really.”

“Can I take a look?”

He twisted at the waist to give her access. She sat down beside him and lifted the hem of his shirt halfway up his back. The bandage was still clean and intact, so she left it alone. The bruises on his side had darkened to an angry purple in some places. When she touched him there, he sucked in a ragged breath.

“Does it hurt?”

“No.”

She palpated his ribs gently. “Were you kicked?”

His expression was flat. “I can’t remember.”

She didn’t believe him. Perhaps he’d learned to give no information, even when pushed to the limit. She was barely pressing him. She didn’t feel any broken ribs, just warm flesh over hard muscles. She tugged his shirt down, trying not to imagine the horrors he’d endured. “I have painkillers.”

“I don’t need them.”

Her gaze rose to his. He’d shifted toward her when she finished her exam. Now they were side by side, and too close for comfort. She could smell the soap he’d used, which conjured an erotic image of water flowing down his naked body.

She suppressed the urge to inhale deeper.
