A Sexy Thriller ~ @oddlynn3 #MySexySaturday #MSSAuthors #LynnCrain

Welcome to week 64th week of My Sexy Saturday. This week’s theme is all about sexy thrillers. And just not the kind that you see in a normal mystery. You might see things from a zombie book or two. Or maybe even a political thriller. I’m thinking it’s all in keeping with the fact that Halloween is just around the corner myself. I just know that sexy moments occur no matter what the story is about. Though some might not call them sexy, the fact is that relationships happen in any type of story. Books are all about the relationship and if I start reading one that doesn’t, I won’t finish it at all.

But let’s get to what’s happening here in Austria this past week. Well…wait for it…absolutely nothing happened here. LOL! I guess that isn’t true. I’ve been busy and the weather has been beautiful. We have cool nights but very high humidity. Yesterday it rained for most of the morning. So much so that I snuggled in bed until almost noon because of the gray skies. Then I realized there was writing to do and more. I’m still doing a lot of research this week and unfortunately, the ebola outbreak plays right into the zombie story I’m writing. I even took an immunology class to make sure I knew what I’m talking about with that one.

Again, don’t forget about Longmire. It’s still trying to find a home and I sure hope it does. They had another stampede last night and I sure wish I could have joined them. But a girl has to sleep. A&E is still trying to back pedal on the fact that they said those of us over 40 don’t count for much. You’d think that since we have the most wealth of the country, they’d see if differently. It is sad but true. The hashtag is #LongLiveLongmire and if you just check it out, on both Facebook and Twitter, you’ll see what the posse has been up to since the last time you looked.

So, now back to sexy thrillers. I don’t have a sexy thriller per se, yet, but I’m working on quite a few for release next year. It was very hard for me to pick out a snippet from any of my books today. I do have some thrilling moments with some stories and that’s what I concentrated on when choosing. Finally, I came up with a story that I think you might enjoy. This particular story will soon be re-released at eXtasy Books. There are a lot of great books in the Atlantis Allure series already and you should check my publisher out when you can. Here’s the setup for Below the Sea.

In her disabled submersible, Lindsay Lanigan sits on the sea floor thinking about her lover Jonas Adaria and hallucinating that merpeople will save her. She has searched for Atlantis forever and a freak accident brings her to its very heart and Jonas. Then there’s the small matter of his mate, Princess Maleka and their lover Bruin. Can she become part of a poly-amourous family unit as is the Atlantean tradition? Or will she decide to die alone below the sea?

Lindsay has always wanted to find the impossible and she’ll have to make some tough choices to have her dream. Yet, she is like so many hoping to find those sexy times with someone special. And I made sure she found the love of her life and had a happy ending. Enjoy today’s seven. 

My head screamed at me, I wanted nothing more than to make the two very loud voices quit arguing so close to me. Willing my eyes to open, I found myself in a room with walls, which looked like the inside of an abalone shell. Swallowing, I tried hard not to, but instead found myself groaning, not too loudly, but loud enough that I drew the attention of the owners of the voices.
“Hi,” I whispered hoarsely. “Could I get some water please?” I could barely keep my eyes open, but I still found myself staring at two of the most beautiful creatures I had ever seen in my life. The woman had reddish blonde hair that reached to her hips. It was wavy and thick and, even though I was a woman, I found myself wanting to touch it to see if it felt like I imagined. Her eyes were like a turquoise pool anyone would want to jump into. Her body was incredibly seductive and desirable, its pull even palpable to my totally female tastes.
The man was incredibly familiar and I couldn’t believe my eyes. There standing before me was my lover of six months. “Jonas?”
He just stood there. No explanation, no anything. “What’s going on?” I tried to struggle to a sitting position when he rushed by my side.
“You shouldn’t do that without help. Here.”
He propped me up against the wall, pushing what I assumed was a pillow behind me. All I could do was sit there and stare, trying my best not to clutch my head. This man had been on my Atlantis team from the very beginning. What did he have to do with this? “I was dying,” I whispered, looking up at him. His hand slid over mine and suddenly I felt all warm, cozy and loved. Trying to shake off feelings I didn’t even understand, and it took a great effort on my part, I pulled my hand from his. “I don’t understand. But I have a feeling you do.”
