Summer fun. There's something wonderful about the lazy days of summer. Even when working a full-time job, sunny days and longer nights can inspire the urge to kick back and relax. Why not sneak in a bit of bliss and unwind with a great book?
When writing as ML Skye, I tend to focus on science fiction or speculative romance, imagining a future where couples have the same issues of contemporary times, but find love in a different galaxy or another planet. There's something fascinating about rank and structure and trying to have a relationship when rules and regulations can get in the way. Being able to create a hot romance in the middle of everything is something I enjoy on so many levels.
My latest release, Surviving the Trap, book one of the Top Dog Pilots series, features a couple who have to combine personal and professional. As the first book in the series, the dynamic is set, but boundaries are crossed and now Max and Maggie have to figure out how to navigate new territory.
Maggie breaks one of her hardline personal rules, but she trusts Max won't make her regret it. The reason she steps over the line is a fun one.
My Blog Giveaway
I had so much fun writing the book and I'm giving a digital copy away for this blog hop. Please leave a comment for your entry and tell me favorite way to laze away a summer day. (Hopefully it involves books!)
Book Tagline: A week of hell pushes Maggie into risking her friendship with Max by sleeping with him.
Series Tagline: Two top pilots, Max Cutter and Maggie Harper, like to mix a little personal with their professional life.
Max tried to play catch-up. By the second day of madness, he'd learned real, honest rest would not be an option and trained his body to go on half-alert when not in the cockpit, sort of like being on standby. He figured it the only way he could catch some sleep. Maggie had effectively interrupted his schedule of a catnap and bracing shower followed by hauling ass back to the hangar deck to run pre-flight checks. The routine played like a mantra in his head. Nap, shower, checks.
So, right. Running a little behind here. Max didn't know what Maggie wanted, but she seemed determined to drag him as far away from the ready room as possible. "Maggie, where are we going?" And how the hell did she even have the energy to walk right now. She almost crackled with vigor.
Maggie slowed down, but didn't let go of his arm. "Cutter, just shut up and come with me." Without another word, she rounded the next corner to duck through an open hatch, quickly pulling Max in behind her.
He stumbled a bit, barely clearing the raised threshold before she dogged the hatch. They were in an empty causeway. One used if a fire broke out on the ship. It was supposed to remain empty unless the fire signal had been activated. Clearly, the lack of sleep had Maggie unhinged.
Reaching to undo the hatch, he muttered. "You know we can't be here, Mags." Next thing he knew, Maggie had him backed up against the bulkhead, her lips sucking on his neck sending him into a state of shocked arousal. "What the hell?" He shook his head, wondering if he'd maybe fallen asleep somewhere back on the flight deck. "Mags?"
