Here’s a snippet of WINTERS HEAT! Enjoy!
Colby Winters, elite member of the Titan Group, meets Mia Kensington, military psychologist on a mission of her own.
Set up: Winters scuffled with cartel bad guys (guess who won that fight?) and has no idea what to do with Mia, who could either be an innocent civilian or part of team-bad-guy. 😉
Winters took a look at the small woman and downed men. The tear gas gnawed into his patience. His decision making skills weren’t firing like they should. Not being able to think in this time constraint, he needed to bring her with him.
He opened the drawer, grabbed the package next to the motel-issued Bible, and wrapped an arm around the woman, throwing her over his shoulder. She was as light as she looked and losing steam with each gas-filled gasp.
“Wait. No! Let me go. Help. Someone help!”
Still, she continued a feeble holler. “Help. Someone. Help.”
There wasn’t anyone around. Her hoarse cries didn’t matter. In joints like this, everyone minded their own business. But still, she was a headache. He didn’t have to take her. He didn’t have to save her. And what the hell did he care if she had to explain it to the cops? But she looked more suited to sell Girl Scout cookies than handle thugs and cops. He couldn’t abandon her now. His protective nature was stoked.
There are worse ways to meet someone…right?
