GUEST: Michelle Howard #PetsInSpace

Dogs and Soldiers. Perfect combination and perfect ingredients for an action filled romance. I’m excited I got to combine the two things I love in my story for the Pets in Space-Embrace the Romance anthology. My hero is a former soldier who was injured at the end of a major war. Thanks to the heroine and a sexy bargain, he ends helping my version of a K9 known as Bogan. From there danger, love and a new partnership soon follows.

While writing this story, I had the pleasure of reading and researching K9’s for law enforcement and walked away more impressed then I already was beforehand. I was torn between many breeds and final settled on the Belgian Malinois because of their beauty and agility. I hope those reading my story take away the same level of pleasure and enjoyment I did from these terrific animals.

Here’s a peek from Wired for Love.

 Hunter took a step forward, negating the attempt at distance.  “One night.”
Narelle’s heart pounded. Licking her lips, she repeated his words “One night? For what?”
Pinning her to the wall with his body, his rough palm cupped her cheek. “It ends now. No more games. You know what I want in exchange.”
Shivers worked their way through her body. Tendrils of desire awakened and coiled around her lower half. She tried to speak and had to clear her throat twice. “Are you really so desperate you’d bargain for a night to get me in bed?”
“Yes.” Simple and ruthless. No remorse in the blunt tone he used. “You have no idea how desperate I am to crawl between your thighs and see if you’re as hot on the inside as you are on the outside.”
“Pathetic, Hunter. You’re pathetic.” But her voice thickened. “What makes you think I want to sleep with you?”
His lips twitched. “Oh, we wouldn’t be sleeping.”
