Welcome to the 97th week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week’s theme is Our Sexy Best and it brought to mind another song: Tina Turner’s The Best. If you haven’t heard this song, you should look it up because it has all the emotion needed for a hot, sexy romance. The one line that really carries this theme is the second one: Better than all the rest. This line is what this theme is all about.
Funnily enough, I have a character nicknamed Best. An overbearing, straight-laced Federal Agent; SSA Alex Orton. Here's a snippet from the second book in the Always Cambridge Series : Running.
It was actually funny how when my bottom dropped out, I always crawled back to Alex. I thought back to day I’d dubbed him, Agent Best. If nothing else we'd known how to push each other's buttons.
“Let’s go over the file.” I knew he was only humoring me. “We’ll start with the Cambridge file. And if there is time we will attempt to outline the Mayhue…”
I’d sat back in the chair and folded my arms. “Perhaps there is another agent…” I all but dismissed him. It pissed him off, just as I'd hoped it would.
“Another agent?” He leapt from his chair in outrage.
“Your obvious hostility towards me seems to be clouding your judgeme…”
“You, Miss Cambridge, know nothing of me! I am the best! If you wish to meet your objectives, you need me!” He'd boasted.
Biting back a smile, I met his level hostile stare and spun the file on the desk towards me. “Well then, Agent Best,” I challenged. “Can we get started?”
The Always Cambridge Series chronicles the life of Holly Cambridge through her tumultuous childhood, violent teen years, into adulthood, and the consequences that stem from being the daughter of mob boss, Bill Cambridge
No matter how far or fast you run, you'll never escape the past.
It’s been three years since anyone has seen or heard from Holly Cambridge. But when she surfaces, she doesn't return home to the loving arms of her family. Instead, she heads straight to the FBI offering information that will destroy the Cambridge crime family.
Special Agent Alex Orton sees Holly Cambridge as nothing more than the next commendation standing between him and the ultimate promotion. What he doesn't bargain for is the shy, damaged, but feisty little woman that convinces his superiors to let her infiltrate a rival family, with Alex heading up the mission.
Holly and Alex clash at every turn, but Alex is intrigued by Holly’s sharp mind and boundless courage and must constantly fight his burgeoning feelings for his lovely informant. Alex is a strict disciplinarian of the rules and can’t reconcile the girl who can’t play by them.
As Holly carries out the sting and insinuates herself into the enemy’s camp, she develops a close and common bond with the middle Mayhue son, the exotically good looking and charismatic Victor. The very man who could end her life, if he were to discover her secret.
Hands tied, Alex must stand back, for the good of the team, and watch the tragedy play out.
Follow the Saga from the beginning... Always Cambridge
