Cover_HighOctaneHeroesBlurb:

What is it about heroes like Superman, Iron Man or Thor that revs our engines like no other? Is it the suit? The manly physique? Or is it the courage they display, wading in where others fear to go, to save the damsel, the city, the Earth? Are there real-life heroes who inspire the same lustful fascination? Kickass iconic heroes who enter danger zones in the name of duty, honor, country—or maybe love—who conjure images of hard, chiseled bodies, deadly glares and camouflaged features?

High Octane Heroes will satisfy the reader who craves the romantic idea of that “super alpha” man. Imagine the Navy SEAL sent on a suicide mission; the damaged Army Ranger home from war; the para rescue team member jumping into frigid waters; a SWAT team member entering a human trafficker’s den… military members and based in far-flung places around the world or the smoke-jumper living next door. Then imagine the romantic possibilities of being held against that massively muscled chest by a man whose mission is to protect and serve…

0164c-6excerpt

From Mountain Man by Tamsin Flowers

Frankie and Melody are stranded on the side of a mountain, but luckily help is soon at hand…

The day wore on and we had no food and no drink.  Frankie was shivering.  I was getting desperate; I didn’t know what to do but I knew it was up to me to do something.  That’s when my imagination started playing tricks on me.  Voices singing in the distance.  A burst of sunshine through the fog.  The herbs-and-garlic smell of my favorite Italian restaurant.  The whop-whop-whop-whop of helicopter blades.

The WHOP-WHOP-WHOP-WHOP-WHOP-WHOP of a helicopter!  Coming closer and far too loud to be imaginary.

“Hooray!  We’re saved,” I cried, hugging Frankie, as the fog was blown away by the dark silhouette of a chopper above us.

She winced in pain and I gently let her go.

“So where are they going to land?” she asked.  “They’re probably not even looking for us.”

But thankfully she was wrong.  Seconds later a man in a bright orange mountain rescue tunic and helmet was being winched down to us on the bottom of a rope.  And what a man!  He landed on our shelf, unclipped his rope and took my breath away.  Six-foot-four of mountain muscle come to take command of the situation.  My chest heaved with relief.

“Either of you ladies hurt?” he said, shouting to be heard above the whopping.

I pointed at Frankie’s leg and he dropped to his knees beside her.  After a cursory look, he swung a pack off his back and removed his helmet.  At which point I was truly lost.  No one who’s on a rescue mission has a right to be that good looking.  Not when saving a person’s life already gives them such an advantage.  His face could have been sculpted out of granite, with sheer cheekbones, a strong jaw and a long, straight nose.  But it was anything but stony; his bright blue eyes were like sparks of electricity, while the sensuous curve of his red lips sent a jolt of current right through me.  And my fingers were straight away itching to rake through his tousled blond hair.

00d00-abouttheauthor1Tamsin Flowers loves to write light-hearted erotica, often with a twist in the tail/tale and a sense of fun.  In the words of one reviewer, ‘Ms Flowers has a way of describing sexual tension that forces itself upon your own body.’ Her stories have appeared in a wide variety of anthologies and she is now graduating to novellas with the intention to pen her magnum opus in the very near future.  In the meantime, like most erotica writers, she finds herself working on at least ten stories at once: while she figures out who’s leg belongs in which story, you can find out more about her at Tamsin’s Superotica or Tamsin Flowers.
