Angel Payne visits and talks about what it's like to jump into a new story!

*Steps in reverently and whispers* Hi there! I’m being reeaaallly quiet on Kally’s page today, because she’s in the final stages of her new book—and we want her to keep working on it! I can’t BELIEVE how excited I am for it, can you??

The thrill of diving into a new story…it’s one of the coolest connections we share as readers, right? Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret. It’s just as cool when you’re writing the story, too. I’m SO serious! I’ll be sitting at the computer, typing along in a scene, and suddenly the characters just blurt out something crazy, or do something wild, that makes me pop back in my chair and say to them, “Oh you did NOT just…” And then the guy (because it is usually one of the guys!) just cracks a naughty smirk and says, “Hell yeah, I just did!”

I began Surrendering To Her Sergeant thinking that Ethan Archer was going to be a pretty good guy and behave most of the time for me. After all, I had his back story down, and I knew where he wanted to be in most of the scenes (most of the time, it was in Ava’s pants, but that’s beside the point). Well hell, did that man teach ME when to relax and think I had a hero all wrapped up neat and tidy before I wrote a single line of his story!

Needless to say, the crazy ride that Ethan took me on was at times insane, many times astounding, but most of all, really pulled at my heartstrings. On top of all that, he spat out, in my little humble opinion, some of the best one-liners in W.I.L.D. Boys history.

Here are just a few examples:

--“A man usually knows what he wants, sunshine. If he has to question wanting it, then it’s not worth dicking around about.”

--“Take off everything. I want to see every inch of the beauty I’ve been fantasizing about. All of it.”

--“Suck my dick, monkey lice.”

--“I’m Special Forces, sunshine. We specialize in impossible.”

--“In my mind, I’m ramming my tongue down your throat right now.”

Now just think of how much fun these will all be to read…in context!

I sincerely hope that you enjoy Ethan and Ava’s story as much as I loved letting them unfold the adventure for me. And I hope you like the additional surprises I’ve thrown in for some spice and color, too! Thanks for supporting the W.I.L.D. Boys—and I KNOW I join Kally in saying thank you for supporting our boys in uniform always!

Surrendering to Her Sergeant 

Corporal Ethan Archer has just earned his sergeant's stripes, and a trip to the fun and sun of LA is just the celebration that the guys on his Special Forces team have deemed the perfect celebration. Ethan has ulterior motives for agreeing so readily to the vacation. He can't forget a magical hour in a North Cascades forest last winter, shared with an indigo-eyed goddess named Ava Chestain, who now calls LA her home.

Ava is a makeup artist for Bella Lanza, star of the wildly-successful nighttime drama Dress Blues. When Ethan and his buddies finagle a visit to the set, his reunion with Ava melts the months away—but their time is cut short by Bella, who’s determined to rekindle her own naughty past with Ethan. His efforts to push Bella off are thwarted when the unit is called to secretly cut their vacation short in the name of assisting the CIA on a harrowing plot to destroy the West Coast. Part of the plan? Someone has to get closer to Bella--and Ethan's the logical choice.

Though Ethan risks his career by telling Ava about the plot, her trust is an impossible gift to earn. Her passion is a different story. As his willing submissive, Ava gives him the fire his body craves...and the surrender his soul needs. She's a dream come true--until the cuffs come off and the sun comes up.
As Ava gives Ethan more nights with her body, it becomes harder to keep hiding her heart from his touch, too. Every time she drops at his feet, she finds herself tumbling for him in deeper, more disconcerting ways. Bella's interference intensifies her struggle against past demons, and the man who stirs them so.

When a terrifying turn of events escalates the terrorists’ plan into full reality, Ethan must make decisions that will either kill or save them all--and his plan includes the necessity of Ava's trust. Can surrender to him with everything she is--including what could be her last breath?
