#MySexySaturday 98

This weeks theme for #MySexySaturday is Our Sexy Men. One of my favorite characters from all of my books is Ryan Newell. Let me introduce you to the very nurturing Ryan. He's the youngest of the Newell brothers and the one that does most of the cooking and cleaning around the mansion. All he wants its to use the soldiering skills his older brother Xander taught him out in the field. But his brothers can all be wwwaaayyyyy over protective.

When they finally do let him go on a rescue mission he gets taken hostage. Sort of. You'll have to read the book to find out what happens. I will say that he does some very sexy ninja-like moves and saves the day.


Being a hostage isn’t so bad as long as you get to negotiate terms.

All Ryan Newell wants to do his prove to his brothers he is just as capable as them of going out on a mission. This time they actually listen, sending him out to rescue three men from a cult that is holding them prisoner. Right from the start things go wrong. One of the prisoners, Zach Landen, manages to break out of his cell and holds him at knife point. Ryan hates the idea of calling for back up but knows he needs to after he learns Zach is very ill. It’s second nature for Ryan to take care of Zach, but Ryan’s giving nature has gotten him in trouble before. Does he really want to get hurt again?

He squeezed through the fence, going slow because his shirt kept getting caught up in the broken tines. Once he was through, he stopped and backed up into the shadows, watching and waiting. His heart beat fast in his chest and he had to take a couple deep breaths to calm his body down. Please don’t fuck this up.

He ran across the grass and to the window Danny had showed him on his computer. The area was lit up by a yard light mounted to the building. The light was flimsy, dim in the darkness, but it did illuminate anyone that was underneath it. He stuck his foot on the glass carefully, not making a sound, pushing in just enough to see if there was a was a light source coming from inside. When he saw nothing he turned onto his stomach and slid down. He felt a little like the window had just given birth to him. He barely fit through the thing.

He’d been told this window would more than likely not be an option for escaping. Not that anyone really knew that for sure, but Ryan had been hopeful. Getting out through this window would be much easier than the plan they had in place. Ryan had no way of knowing that until he got a good look at the captives. Even Aaron, who had been a prisoner down there, had never seen the other captives.

Once Ryan’s feet hit the floor with a soft puff sound, he turned and stood just inside, letting his eyes adjust to the darkness. He backed up slowly, waiting for his back to hit a corner of the room. He heard someone cough, but the sound was muffled and he couldn’t make out which direction it was coming from. The smell was almost unbearable and reminded him of the way Aaron had smelled when they had found him. Of course, Aaron’s body had a few hours to air out—this air was dank and clung to the inside of his nose and throat like hands choking him around the neck.

An arm came around his waist then, pinning him down, holding him in place. Something sharp was held against his throat, not cutting in, but it would with just a tiny bit of pressure. Ryan didn’t make a sound—he knew better.

The man holding him wheezed out a breath against his cheek, which Ryan thought was odd. “Shh, or I’ll cut your throat.”

“I’m not gonna hurt you. I’m here to help,” Ryan whispered. He had a link to Danny who yelled in his ear, demanding to know what was going on.

“I said shut up.” The man coughed against his cheek, the hand at his throat moving just enough to sting his skin. Ryan felt a trickle of blood slide down his throat and moved his head as far back onto the man’s shoulder as he could get it. The arm around his waist loosened, letting up on the pressure.
