Synopsis:
For decades the US Marines funded a top-secret unit known as Elite Recon. A deadly group of men and women sent to infiltrate dozens of countries completely undetected. Mission objectives so extreme casualties were not only probable, but expected.

The current batch of operatives had returned from hundreds of assignments unscathed…until one mission went horribly wrong. Several men lost their lives and the group disbanded. The remaining leathernecks were scattered in the wind with new identities. They were told to blend in. Be normal. Or face being forever silenced just like their fallen brothers.

Now, two years later, each living member of the group is kidnapped and given a chance to make things right. But this time they’re no longer under the thumb of Uncle Sam. A mysterious private backer who knows about their past has brought them back together. No longer are they forced to turn a blind eye to the lost and forsaken.

Duty is their salvation.

A new life. A new future…Elite Metal.

~Guest Post!~
What makes your character-couple sexy? I was asked this the other day about the Elite set. It took me a minute to focus because I needed to multiply my answer by 8!!!

We have a lot of couples in Elite Metal. That’s 8 times the sexy as just one story. And OMG do we have some powerhouse couples. So I figured I’d break it down for you. In order that they appear in the set. Maybe whet your appetite just a bit for the boxed-set of the year!!! Without further adieu I give you the couples of Elite Metal.

Bound by Steele - Steele and Alayna – He has walls of guilt built around him so high no one will ever be able to find him. Except Alayna. She has the same walls for the same reasons. The sparks fly with these two no matter if they’re locked in a hotel bedroom alone for hours at a time, or on a stage at a BDSM club having to “perform” for the crowd. So. Very. Sexy.

Chrome’s Salvation - Chrome and Cammie – Chrome doesn’t like kids, but he loves Cammie’s kids before he even meets them. He doesn’t want to love anyone, but he loves Cammie. He’s a hard-ass Marine hell bent on getting as far away from Elite as fast as he can, but he can’t leave Cammie on her own. He can’t leave Cammie…period. The only kind of sex he likes is kinky and hard core. Except with Cammie. With her? He loves it all.

Adamantium’s Roar - Adamantium and Beth – The tech man meets his kryptonite. His best friend’s girl. The one he couldn’t forget, but he knew…KNEW…he was being the better man by letting her believe he died in Moscow. But her life’s been anything but easy and he has years of trust to earn back. He knows “her”. The girl she has trapped inside, hidden from the world so she can survive. Love and sex. Amazing how quickly two people, meant to be together, can find themselves again. And how difficult it is for each of them to let go of the past.

Pure Copper - Copper and Gabriel – Copper is one badass Marine. Beautiful. Capable. Deadly. With a heart impenetrable, or so she thought. Then in walks Gabriel who “sees” her for the first time in years. The fireworks these two ignite left me breathless for more. When Copper shows her vulnerable side? Holy Shit!

Sterling’s Seduction - Sterling and Roni - What do you get when you mix a Marine that lives in nothing but secrets and a reporter hell bent on digging up every last one she can uncover? I have no words for the combination of cat and mouse these two play. And did I mention the attraction? It. Is. Epic.

Platinum’s Choice - Platinum and Rose – An estranged father and his son’s teacher. The teacher who saves him. Protects him. A torrid love affair cut short because Platinum is yanked back into the fold of Elite. More than a simple apology is going to assuage the woman he loves and he’s ready to offer anything to get another chance at her heart.

Mercury and Hazel – Merc is the beastly/scarred/genius who doesn’t think he’s worth anyone’s love. Not after what he did. And Hazel is the doctor who thinks she can save the world one person at a time. Merc’s no exception. Instead of feeling terrified of his hulking self she’s comforted, protected, cared for more than she ever thought possible. And the sex? Oh My Wow – the sex.

Forged in Silver - Silver and Poppy – This one has a special place in all of our hearts because Elite’s ice princess finally meets her match with the rebel whose been shunned from the group because he went rouge. What happens when all that ice melts and the real woman underneath shines through? Guess you’re going to have to push that buy button to find out!!!!!

Everybody has a buck to spend on this much sexy! Trust me…it will be well worth the investment!

~Bound by Steele~ 
Pfft.

“Ah,” he grunted and slapped at the dart embedded into his neck.

Who tracked him down? Russian intelligence? Red Wolf? Or was the US government ready to make sure he was a mistake that never came back to haunt them?

Adrenaline shot whatever drug they loaded him up with through his blood stream like a rocket, and instantly his body went heavy as though sand filled his veins. His knees were gave way as the bone had been replaced by Slinkies. He bobbed and stumbled into the railing.

Stay calm. Stay the fuck calm.

“It’s best if you don’t resist us, Steele,” said the tallest of the trio. Other than the height difference, the three looked like triplets in matching wetsuits and face masks.

American accent? So, he was being called home.

“What? You thought I’d make this easy for you?” he sputtered past numb lips and inched back, searching for a way to escape.

At this point it was looking as if the only option was over the railing to the open ocean below. If he was limp enough, he might be able to pop to the surface like a cork. If not, well…

“We’ve come to collect you.”

“Really? I’m no fucking postage stamp.”

With the last of his energy, he swung his leg around with a roundhouse kick, knocking the front man into his buddy behind him. Spots floated in his vision as he threw a right hook followed by an upper cut. From the sounds of grunting and a gasp of pain, he knew he connected with something, but he couldn’t tell what.

Two pairs of hands latched on to his arms and pulled him to the ground.

“Nice to see he hasn’t lost his spirit,” one of them said. “Even doped up, he still packs a bunch. Damn, I think he broke a tooth.”

“You’re so dead,” he slurred as the world went black. Either the ghosts put a bag over his head or the drugs victoriously sucked him under. “Dead, you… mother…”



* * * * *



Sweat trickled down his cheek. The sweltering fabric pressed against his face added to the discomfort of a throbbing head. Exhaustion weighed him down as though he’d hiked a hundred miles with an eighty-pound pack on his back.

Steele licked his lips and tasted nothing but nappy cotton and an acrid, metallic aftertaste. The nauseous feeling reminded him of his time in training when he had been drugged to condition his body to withstand enemy torture.

Drugged.

What the hell?

His eyes flew open to a vision of black, black and more black.

Oh… Right.

Memories of his last moments on the oil rig came flooding back. The men in black, the sting of the needle, and missing his former life so badly, he’d been tempted to jump into the ocean and sink to the rocky bottom.

But he hadn’t jumped. He’d fought, fought with his last breath.

Huh, well what do ya know. He did have the will to live after all.

But for how much longer would he have the opportunity to do something with the rediscovered desire?

In typical hostage fashion, his arms and legs were shackled to a wooden chair. Judging by the sturdiness of the seat under his ass and the fine, smooth finish under his palms, this wasn’t a rickety dime store chair. It didn’t even creak as he shifted his weight from side to side. Hmm, so whoever was holding him had enough money to afford quality furnishings for their interrogations.

Since he couldn’t see shit through the hood, he slowed his breathing and tried to gather as much intel as he could.

Wherever he was, it was hot. A slight breeze from his right tickled the hair on his bare arms. The flooring under his shoes was solid, without the slightest give. Concrete probably. And the scent of gasoline and motor oil tickled his nose. An exhaust fan roared nearby, but the room was cavernous, lacking the noise reduction sensation from insulated walls. A warehouse, for certain, or something similar.

And he wasn’t alone.

Time to get the party started.

“Okay, you motherfuckers. You know I’m awake and I know one of you has a deviated septum. So let’s just get down to it, shall we?”

The click-clack of a pair of heels reverberating off the floor was an interesting surprise.

“Remove his hood,” a woman ordered.

The fabric was ripped over his head, and he blinked in the bright light to focus his vision. Once the spots dissipated he locked on to the beautiful female dressed in the sexy-librarian pencil skirt and high heels. She had a semi-circle of assholes standing behind her. Eight of them. The same men who’d drugged him.

At least he assumed they were some of the same men who had shanghaied him earlier. Gone were the wet suits, replaced with black fatigues, but the masks were still in place, and to his amusement one of the men sported a black and blue bruise on the bit of flesh visible through the eyeholes.


“Hello, Steele,” the woman said with a no nonsense smile. “My name is Poppy.”
