Today I have the blog tour for Rogue by Brynley Blake! Check out this fantastic new contemporary romance and grab your copy today!!
Noah Payne used to be a Navy SEAL…until his job cost him his family. Now he wants revenge, and he’s not above playing dirty to get it. His current mission—to find a missing shipment of guns—is the last piece of the puzzle. But his only lead is Liam Prescott’s bucket list. Noah figures that by getting close to Liam’s sister, McKenzie, he’ll soon get his hands on the list. Only keeping his hands off a suddenly sexy McKenzie is turning out to be the real challenge!
It’s hard to see him clearly in the dim lights of the club, but I can make out short, tousled dark hair—the kind that begs you to run your fingers through it—chiseled features, a strong jaw, and a hint of scruff that has me inexplicably wondering what it would feel like against my lips. He looks completely at ease, dressed in khaki slacks and a shirt unbuttoned just enough to reveal a hint of his smooth, muscled chest, with one ankle crossed over his knee and his arm slung across the back of the sofa, a crystal glass dangling from his fingertips. His shirt sleeves are rolled up to reveal a tattoo, and his hands are strong and powerful looking. Oh, yeah. He’s Dangerous with a capital D.
If I weren’t feeling reckless and didn’t already have a few drinks in me, I would have turned back around and ignored him. Some part of me knows that’s exactly what I should do. But there’s something about him—an aura of uncompromising confidence coupled with an almost cruel sensuality that roots me to the spot, unable to tear my gaze away. My typically careful inner voice is telling me I should turn around and go back to dancing with Charlotte and Gemma and the harmless group of boys we met earlier. Those guys are safe. This guy is anything but. He’s a man. All hard edges, confidence, and rugged masculinity wrapped into one tantalizingly sexy package.
Yet I can’t make myself walk away. Maybe it’s because I’ve already lost everything and have nothing left to lose, or maybe Liam’s death has taught me there are no guarantees and life is short so you might as well live it. Maybe it was jumping off that waterfall that’s emboldened me, or maybe it’s just the connection I feel with Liam that empowers me to be daring. But something’s changed, and for once in my life, I don’t want to play it safe. I want to be like Liam—wild and bold and free and, most of all, fearless. It’s time to redefine myself, to be the girl I’ve always been too afraid to be.
With my heart thumping in time with the beat of the music, I slowly walk straight toward the devil himself.
