Doctor Comfort Djan is looking for salvation after a tragic accident, which takes her to deprived regions where her skills heal the helpless. Until Fate thrusts her as a medic on board a West African military coastal protection ship. Proving herself to the male-only crew is nothing compared to being near one intense naval officer who has her feeling something other than her survivor's guilt.

Commander Akin Solarin wants nothing more than to do his job, especially when his medic's temporary replacement turns out to be a disconcerting woman who pushes all his buttons. He runs a tight ship, and doesn't need captivating and efficient yet aloof Comfort around to keep his heart-rate in semi-permanent overdrive.

Neither can deny the attraction between them, but navigating uncharted personal waters may be the least of their problems when confronted with bold pirate attacks and other vicious unknown dangers onboard the frigate. And when Comfort's life gets on the line, Akin knows he will do anything to save his medic and heal her battered heart in the process.

Loosening his hold, he pulled himself back to hook a finger under her chin so she could look him in the eyes. She needed to see the truth of his words.
“No, Comfort. You’re strong. You always have been and I don’t doubt you always will be. Your ex was the weak one for expecting you to heal from the heartbreak of a lifetime without changing. For not being able to remember that everything passes. Everything. And not sticking by you until it did.”
Warm air fanned his cheek when she expelled a shuddering breath. “He had every right. Hell, I’m surprised he stayed as long as he did. We hadn’t been getting along for the year prior. We were both overworked and...”
“What?” He prodded with a small shake of her shoulder.
“I had been putting off having a baby for a while.” She lowered her gaze. “I wasn’t ready to lose the foothold I’d gotten on my career. If we’d had a child he would’ve proceeded while I’d been held back. I wasn’t ready to make the sacrifice.” She focused on him again. “I guess that makes me selfish.”
Akin smiled. “Only as selfish as anyone else, male or female, who wants to make a career for themselves. It’s just that women are expected to fall back when they have a child while men continue forward.”
Her brows bunched together. “If I didn’t know better I’d think you were a feminist.”
Free from witnesses, he released the laughter. How did she have the uncanny ability to set him free? “What makes you think I’m not?”
She raised a finger into the air, “You’re mean to women.”
“I’m mean to everyone.”
“True.” A second digit flung up. ”You don’t want female sailors on your ship.”
He grabbed her hand and laced their fingers together. How could such a small thing fit so perfectly into his?
“It’s not my rule. We’re on a pirate-seeking ship where the risk of being attacked is high. Pirates have no honor. I’d hate to think what would happen to a woman if she were ever captured during a siege.”
An icy chill stole down his spine at the thought of it ever happening with Comfort on board.

Cover Reveal: Guarding Antonia (Guardian SEALS #6) by Nicole Flockton @NicoleFlockton

Title: Guarding Antonia
Series: Guardian SEALS #6
Author: Nicole Flockton
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Military Romance
Coming: January 8, 2019
Page Count: 157 Pages
Cover Designed by: More Than Words Promotions
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? That’s what Antonia Rocca thought about her impetuous marriage to a Navy SEAL. When circumstances bring them back in the same orbit, the attraction is still there, even though she does everything to fight it. When it comes to light that their marriage isn’t annulled like she’d believed, she’s adamant that ending their union is for the best.

Brendan “Robot” Dean is never one to make a rash decision, so his Vegas marriage is very out of character. However, when he discovers it is still valid, he considers it an opportunity to explore his attraction to Antonia and find out if they really could have a marriage. If only Antonia agreed with him.

After Antonia witnesses a murder, Robot is there to provide support and keep her safe and she finds herself seeing him in a way that has her thinking of a future she never imagined. Before they get the chance to find out, Antonia is taken by the murderer. Robot and his team must race against time to save her from becoming his next victim.

“You know this Robot person?” asked Officer Patterson.
“Yeah, he’s a friend. Let me go let him in before he breaks down the door.” She rushed out of the kitchen down the hallway, pulling the chain and unlocking the door. The second she opened it, six burly men stormed into the apartment. She plastered herself against the wall to stop from getting trodden on.
“Looks like you have your own protection detail, ma’am.” Detective Correa commented with a wry smile.
Antonia swallowed the words she wanted to blurt out, instead she smiled and nodded. What she had was six interfering men who always had to be in control.
If the SEAL team had any regrets for the way they barged in, they didn’t show it. Her apartment wasn’t huge to start off with, but with Robot’s team and the two police officers standing around, it felt more like a matchbox.
“Okay, SEAL team, go into my living room while I finish up with the police. I’ll deal with you in a few.”
The men smiled before heading her request. All but Robot, who widened his stance and crossed his arms over his chest, giving the impression of an immovable rock wall. She narrowed her eyes at him and cocked her head to indicate he follow his team. His lips firmed into an even straighter line.
Damn him, he wasn’t budging. Did she really think he would?
Maybe not, but she hoped he might.
“Is he bothering you, ma’am?” Detective Correa asked, and she had to bite back a laugh at the image of the police officer trying to remove a Navy SEAL.
Robot took two steps until he was standing by her and he stared down the cop. “I’m her husband. I’m staying.”
Antonia gasped at Robot’s admission. “What the hell do you think you’re doing?” she hissed at him. She looked around to make sure none of his team heard him. Thankfully the area was empty, but her apartment wasn’t huge, and Robot hadn’t done anything to keep his voice down.
Great, this day was getting worse and worse.
“If you’re her husband, why weren’t you here with her this morning?” The detective looked around the room. “There’s no indication you reside here. Why should we believe you, considering Ms. Rocca’s reaction to your declaration?”
Well, Antonia could be thankful the police hadn’t immediately taken Robot’s word as gospel.
Robot shrugged his impressive shoulders. “It’s a long and complicated story, but the fact of the matter remains, I’m legally her husband and I’m staying with her while you question her further.”
“Ms. Rocca can you confirm this, please? Is this man your husband?”
Talk about being pushed into a corner with no way out, but Antonia had no plans to lie to the police officers and end up in trouble. “Yes, he’s my husband. Technically.”
Shit, that felt so weird to say out loud. And oddly…right.

“I don’t understand. Why, of all the women in Houston, would you pick me? I am a nobody. And you clearly need someone that is more refined than I could ever be,” I confessed, waving my hand to remind him of his wealth.
“It is for that reason that I chose you, Hanna.”
As he moved from his chair to sit next to me, already my body was becoming overly warm. The wine was also beginning to make me feel fuzzy. Taking the empty glass from my hand, he placed it on the table. It could have been the wine, but all I wanted to do was kiss him. When his eyes met mine, there was nothing to stop me from doing just that. Wrapping my arms around his broad shoulders, I pressed my lips to him in a forceful kiss in which I held nothing back. The best part was that he hadn’t pulled back. Instead he took me into his arms and tenderly kissed me back. I could taste the sweet wine on his lips as his tongue brushed my lips before it invaded my mouth with wet heat. The kiss, although drunken and sloppy, was one to be remembered.
I knew that with a kiss like this, it would lead to much more. Even though I was in no state of mind to refuse, I knew that I would regret it in the morning if I allowed it to continue. Breaking free before things got out of hand, I wiped my hand across my swollen lips and said, “I think it’s time that I left.”
As I stood to my feet, I could feel my surroundings begin to move in all directions. My body swayed back and forth as I tried desperately to hide the fact that I shouldn’t have had that last glass of wine. Holding me close to his body to steady me, Aiden lifted my chin. “I think it would be best if you stayed here tonight. I am in no condition to take you home and Albert has probably retired for the evening.”
Who was I to argue? His point was well made and I wouldn’t be able to afford a taxi to drive me home, nor was I going to take a handout. Nodding my head, I responded, careful not to slur my words. “Wouldn’t want to wake up Albert.”
Putting one foot in front of the other, I concentrated on my steps, careful not to sway too much as I walked toward the house. With one arm around me, Aiden helped me do just that. When we reached the foyer, I looked to the stairs, wondering if I would be tumbling down them in my condition. Walking on a flat surface was one thing, but climbing steps was another. Feeling my apprehension, Aiden scooped me up in his arms and carried me with ease up the stairs. I was beginning to think that he wasn’t as drunk as he implied.
I wasn’t sure where he was taking me since he hadn’t set me down when we reached the top of the stairs. I had faith that he would be a gentleman about this situation and he was. When he opened a door at the end of the hall, I knew that he was taking me to the guest bedroom that he had shown me earlier. Of all the rooms that were on this floor this had been my favorite. It was decorated with light colors of blues and greens and it was the most feminine of all the rooms on the floor.
Pulling back the covers, he placed me gently on the bed. For a moment I wanted him to stay, but knew that it would be a mistake. Settling in, the last thing I remembered before closing my eyes was a tender kiss he placed on my cheek.
Some would call me a little naughty but I see myself as a writer of spicy thoughts. Being an erotic romance writer is something that I never imagined I would be doing. There is nothing more rewarding than to put your thoughts down and sharing them. I began writing three years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it. When I first began writing, I really wasn’t sure what I was going to write. It didn't take me long to realize that romance would be my niche. I believe that every life deserves a little bit of romance, a little spice doesn't hurt either. When I am not writing, I enjoy the company of good friends and relaxing with a delicious glass of red wine.
