Guest Post & Giveaway ~*~ Wet for Her Warriors by Angel Payne

So many thanks to Illustrious Illusions for having me back on the blog this week! I’m SO thrilled to be here, talking about the newest book in my W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series: WET FOR HER WARRIORS.

A lot of people raise their eyebrows at that title. I have to admit, when I first conceived it, so did mine! But the funny thing was: it just worked. And…not for ALL the reasons you may think!

I already knew that I was going to set the book on the incredible island of Kauaˋi—where there is more rainfall than anyplace else in Hawaii, as well as waterfalls that will simply take your breath away—so it made sense that the book in which Kellan, Tait and Lani fall in love mention water in some way, shape, and form. Additionally, as you read through the book, you’ll discover that healing is a huge theme for this three-way relationship. All three of these characters must find their version of it as their hearts find their way to each other.

If you can’t tell, this was an incredibly special book for me to write…and I’m now a little sad but also a little relieved to have it OUT of me! Every scene I wrote had a great deal of my soul and my heart in it…and I hope that you’ll feel that as my springtime gift of Aloha to you! Mahalo for your support of the WILD Boys series!!

Thanks for stopping by Angel, it is always a pleasure and an honor to have you visit!

Wet for Her Warriors
(WILD Boys #5)

Tait Bommer’s call-sign, T-Bomb, has never described him more accurately. When he’s not pissing someone off or scaring them witless, he’s now the First Special Forces Group’s official loose cannon, responsible for a major screw-up on their most recent mission. His mess has earned him two weeks of mandated R&R on the shores of Kauai, where the ultimatum is clear: straighten his head or don’t return to active duty. But he’s such a train wreck that even his best friend, Kellan Rush, isn’t happy about having to pull babysitting duty.

When the guys find their "vacation" interrupted on by a stranger bearing nothing but a glare, a Bowie knife, and a lot of curves in a tiny bikini, they wonder if the trip hasn’t been hijacked by the island spirits—because surely they’ve found a goddess in the dark-haired beauty who not only sees their emotional scars, but opens their spirits by slowly exposing her own soul.

“Therapy” takes on magical new meaning when three illicit desires collide in nights of explosive passion…and their goddess’s sweet submission. Neither man wants to leave their island paradise, a torment that's intensified when an old adversary threatens to steal their goddess forever--and rip their friendship apart. Tait and Kellan must decide to let anger and jealousy triumph, or unite as brothers at arms for the most important mission of their lives, in the name of the greatest cause of all: saving the woman they love.

Angel Payne Bio:
Well, hello there! My name is Angel, and I’m so happy to meet you.pic

Like many, I’ve had a journey to get here.

I’ve loved reading all my life, and have been writing nearly that long, too. I think it started when I penned an 80-page novel about a time-traveling family for a 5th-grade school project. You could say I was hooked. In middle school, I moved to the hardcore stuff: the paragraph-at-a-time “swap-stories” with all my besties. (C’mon…don’t lie…you remember those too!) Needless to say, the stories featured lots of French kissing, mindless groping and angsty drama – but I knew I’d found a niche when I was invited to participate in several more swap-stories on campus.

Some years, various entertainment writing gigs and a half-dozen historical romances later, I discovered the world of erotica – and home. (Not to mention a great place for all that angst I never gave up.) I love this genre – change that to love this genre – and hope my stories speak to your heart as well as your blood pressure, as well as your courage to explore new things and express your truth in beautiful new ways.

And where do I do all this? Well, if you ask my hubz, he’d likely say “on another planet,” especially if I’m in story-brewing mode! The rest of the time, I live in Southern California with him and our gorgeous child, where I’m abnormally interested in travel, coffee, wine, shoes, super heroes, fetish wear, ridiculous pop culture trends – but most of all, hearing from fellow readers and erotica lovers like you!

Remember: play safe, love completely and never, ever be ashamed to live your truth.
