Saved by Venom
Grabbed, Book Three
To escape her father's debt to a loan shark, Dizzy seeks refuge in the upcoming Grab. She’d rather belong to one of those terrifying sky warriors from the battleship Valiant than to the sleazy criminal who wants her as his plaything.
The years of constant war haven’t been kind to highly decorated sniper Venom. Only the promise of earning a wife kept him going through deadly battles. Catching and collaring Dizzy fills him with incredible hope. Finally he has a woman of his own, a mate to love—and bind and adorn with his ropes.
After a brazen Splinter attack, the Shadow Force uncovers secrets about Dizzy’s late mother that entangle her in a web of deceit. To save Venom, her father and an operative named Terror, Dizzy digs deep and risks it all.
Venom refuses to stand idly by while Dizzy’s haunted past threatens the future they’re trying to build. He finally has a reason for living—and he’s not giving her up
Sneak Peek Excerpt:
Venom held up his hands to show he meant her no harm. “Don’t be afraid of me, Dizzy.”
“I don’t want to fear you but you’re so—”
She nodded. “You could really hurt me.”
“I don’t want to hurt you.”
“What…what do you want with me?”
“What do you want with me?”
She frowned at the way he had so neatly turned the question around to her. “I’m not the one chasing a woman through the forest.”
He smiled. “No, but you came back to help me. If you’d really wanted to get away, you would have thanked your lucky stars that I’d been trapped and kept on running. Why did you come back, Dizzy?”
She swallowed hard and considered his query. Finally, she admitted, “I don’t have anywhere else to go.”
The smile faded from his face. He crawled toward her, lifting his knees and planting them closer to her. His movements pushed aside the powdery snow and left trailing troughs. “Go with me. I’ll take care of you, Dizzy. I’ll provide a nice, comfortable home for you and all the perks of being an officer’s wife. You’ll want for nothing if you come with me.”
The idea of belonging to this man, of having someone who cared for her and only her, tempted Dizzy a great deal. Since her mother’s death, her father had been so forlorn and distant. There were times he looked at her as if he hated her, as if he resented that she had survived and her mother hadn’t. Lately he only came around when he needed money or a favor.
Thinking of the way her father had betrayed and used her, she asked, “In exchange for what, Venom?”
A little about the character Venom:
Mate: Waiting for his chance to Grab
Ranked as the third best shot in the entire land corps force, Venom is nonetheless the most deadly of all their snipers. During the Sendarian siege, he volunteered to take a risky position outside the wire to keep the desperately needed supply routes open. Haunted by that battle, he lives for the day he can take a mate. Currently, he's the second-in-command of the SRU Alpha Team aboard the Valiant.
While browsing bookstore shelves as a teenager, Lo discovered the erotic writings of Anaïs Nin and A.N. Roquelaure. Certain her mother would not approve, Lo smuggled the books home and squirreled them away in the most likely of places: under her bed. Late at night, she delved into the sensual worlds both writers created.
As a co-ed studying biochemistry and genetics at Texas A&M University, Lo dabbled in creating naughty tales to entertain her friends. Study for a midterm or pen a deliciously dirty story to delight her small band of fans? Not surprisingly, Lo is now on an extended sabbatical from college.
Luckily, Lo stumbled onto the world of erotic romance publishers. She realized there were other readers and writers who loved and craved breathtaking romance with the spiciest of love scenes. She took a chance and submitted her first novella. The rest is history.
Lo lives in Texas with her Viking throwback of a husband and mischievous preschool-aged daughter. She also writes super sexy romances and scorching hot erotica under the pen name Roxie Rivera.
