He’s the hero of A Soldier’s Honor

Heros’ name, rank and serial number: Brandon Falcon  Lieutenant 296-35-19

Branch of the service:  Navy SEALs

 

What is his most heroic trait?

He follows through on a promise either personal or mission.

 

What kind of woman is his perfect match?

Brandon doesn’t have a particular kind of women. Though if pressed he’d say he liked blonds. He would love to meet an intelligent, loving woman who can accept him as he is. He sees himself as scarred by war and thinks of himself as ugly inside. The perfect woman would see those scars, not give a damn and love him anyway.

Blurb

A Soldier’s Honor

Redeem his honor, save her life… and find everlasting love.

A botched rescue operation leaves Navy SEAL, Brandon Falcon, one chance to salvage his good name: rescue a medical missionary from rebel forces, drag her kicking and screaming through the jungle to the extraction point, while searching for his best friend who went MIA during the last mission.

Dr. Mira Phelps has one goal—discover a way to help children maimed by war. She’s sneaks into Honduras following a coup…desperate to find the Blue Spider Orchid, purported to have miraculous healing powers. The brawny SEAL who rescues her is ready to leave the country, quickly— she must convince him to help her find the life-saving orchid.

Pitted against desperate men, unable to trust anyone, the red-hot passion sparking between Mira and Brandon threatens to bring them to an explosive end–before they discover a lasting love.

Second Chances

By

Alana Lorens

 

Hero’s name, rank and serial number :  Kurt Lowdon, First Sergeant,  # 13286664

Branch of the service:  ARMY

What is his most heroic trait? Determination—whether it’s building a desk, a military mission, helping a friend, or pleasing his lover, he’s on board 100% until the job is done

What kind of woman is his perfect match?    He’s happiest when he’s needed—so a woman who is smart and capable, but can also be vulnerable and allow him to do what he does best

 

BLURB:

When Inessa Regan gets a pink slip, laid off from her law firm at the age of 42, without prospects she’s sure her life is over. She hides from the world, until her neighbor brings her a client, a young Iraq war veteran dying of cancer.

Kurt Lowdon only wants to make sure his affairs are in order should the worst happen, but meeting Inessa gives him encouragement on the road to recovery. His quest to help her realize her self-worth leads them into dangers they never expected, as horrors from the war and long-hidden family secrets come back to haunt them.

 

BIO:

Alana Lorens has been a published writer for more than forty years. Currently a  resident of Asheville, North Carolina, she loves her time in the smoky blue mountains. One of her novellas, THAT GIRL’S THE ONE I LOVE,  is set in the city of Asheville during the old Bele Chere festival. She lives with her daughter, who is the youngest of her seven children, two crotchety old cats, and five kittens of various ages.

 

Alana, why do you like writing military heroes?     I like mine because he’s not only an alpha male— this story finds him in a place where all those traits that got him through the Iraq War have failed him–he has to depend on someone else to get him through. Then he comes right back and saves her, too.

My Past, Your Future by Gabbi Grey

Deerbourne Inn Series

 

Hero’s name and rank : Corporal Elijah Freeman

Branch of the service: Army – Massachusetts 54th, 1863 (died in the second battle of Fort Wegner)

What is his most heroic trait? Belief all men are equal

What kind of man is his perfect match? During the war it was a fellow black soldier.  In present day it’s a History Professor.  A sexy red-headed Scotsman.

 

My Past, Your Future Blurb

Callum MacLaren, a professor from Scotland, visits Willow Springs, Vermont during the Winter Solstice to study and explore the rich history of St. Joseph’s Cemetery. His encounter with a sexy soldier in a tattered Civil War uniform is a captivating puzzle, and the more he learns, the deeper his attraction.

A hundred and fifty years ago, Elijah Freeman was killed during the Second Battle of Fort Wagner and woke up in Willow Springs, the only home he’d known. Alone, he roams the town, unable to leave or interact with a single soul until an intriguing Scot addresses him. Even stranger, the man can see him, hear him, and touch him–a sizzling caress that leaves Elijah aching for more.

But will Elijah return to his ghostly form when the magic of the solstice fades, or is Callum’s love enough to keep him in the land of the living?

Excerpt: 

“Why do you think you’re in Purgatory? That’s what you believe, aye?”

 

“Or some form of it.” He removed his cap, scratched his head, then put it back on. “I figure if

this were Heaven or Hell there’d be other dead people. Of course, I believed there’d be other dead people in Purgatory as well. The word just…fits.”

 

“I hate to be so direct, but what did you do?” And wasn’t that just the question he’d been

dreading? A sense of self-preservation held him back. What if the truth drove Callum to judge him  and find him wanting? What if he repulsed the man? No, better to skirt the truth and keep this new companion as long as possible. “I did something that was against the laws of both nature and man. I believe that’s why God has punished me.” Honest, if not the whole truth.

 

“In a time of war I suspect all men—and women these days—do things they’re not proud of.

Things they wish they hadn’t been forced to do. War is, by its very nature, a battle to survive. You didn’t survive, obviously, but if you died trying… I mean, was it that bad?” Even as he said the words, Callum brushed them off with the flick of his hand. “Obviously it was, but you were at war. If all soldiers kill people, why were you singled out for punishment?”

 

“I did something dishonorable. It has kept me from being with the person I most want to be with. I think…” He’d had a long time to reason this out. “I believe that, although I shouldn’t have done what I did, there were, if you will, reasons for it.” He tried out words he’d heard before. “Extenuating circumstances.” Big words to be sure. “Enough to prevent me from going directly to Hell, but not enough to protect me and send me to Heaven.” To be with Cornelius.

 

Callum’s green eyes shone with empathy. “You must have loved the lady in question.”

 

“What?” The one word came out sharper than he’d intended.

 

“You said the person you most want to be with. I think…” His gaze darted around. When he looked back at Elijah, it was focused. “I think I see true affection in your eyes.”

 

Oh, that. “The person I loved.” Might as well tell the whole honest tale. “I was a sodomite. I loved a man. When he died, I picked up my rifle with the bayonet and entered the fray, determined to kill as many enemies as possible. I also recklessly put myself in the line of fire. It took only one shot from a rifleman to take me out.”

Why do you like writing military heroes?  When I heard about the Deerbourne Inn series, I knew I wanted to participate.  It took me several months to work out the plot of the story. I wanted to tell the story of a ghost, and having a Civil War soldier was perfect.  Elijah was born into slavery, but he and his father escaped through the Underground Railroad.  His father died, and Elijah was raised as a free black man.  When the Civil War broke out, he waited impatiently to join the army.  Upon Lincoln’s declaration of the Emancipation Proclamation, black men were allowed to join the army, albeit in segregated units.  Elijah fought, and died, to bring freedom to black people everywhere.

 

What happens in a no-strings affair

Their No-Strings Affair

By Charlotte O’Shay

 

Hero, ex-military: Jake Ricco, Petty Officer, First Class, Navy, Retired

Though he doesn’t acknowledge it, Jake’s entire Naval career was his response to guilt over his brother’s accidental drowning death when they disregarded instructions, as kids do, and swam in choppy water  (making him an only child). His now estranged mother blamed him for the accident, his parents split over it. He completed partial college, enlisted in the Navy then entered SEAL training. After becoming a SEAL he served only one tour because his father became ill and he came home to NYC to care for him.

Most heroic trait: Empathy. Responsibility. Jake is disciplined, focused and feels everyone’s pain while ignoring his own psychic wounds.

What kind of woman is his perfect match? The perfect woman for Jake is one who can help him recognize he isn’t personally responsible for everything that goes wrong in the world, someone who can make him laugh and challenge him yet nurture him. And someone who can accept all the pent up love he wants to share with the people in his life.

Blurb:

Honey packs everything she owns and heads to NYC to jumpstart her art career. Her cheating boyfriend is history, and she finally acknowledges the truth of her mother’s mantra: Careers are forever and happily ever after isn’t in their DNA.

All she needs is a job and a place to live. What she doesn’t need is a taciturn, sexy, ballbuster but she’s woman enough to know the difference between need and want. Isn’t she?

Jake’s childhood was marred by tragedy and his future hijacked to a promise born of guilt. His failure drove him to a career as a SEAL and a security expert.
But it’s not enough. Now he’ll give up his freedom in reparation for the life he lost. Honey may be the last sweet stop on the road to a joyless future. If it’s what they both want, where’s the harm in a no-strings affair?

Meet Charlotte O’Shay

Author Charlotte O’Shay was born in New York City into big family then married into another big family. The drama! The noise! Negotiating skills honed at the dinner table led her to a career in the law.After four beautiful children joined the crowded family tree, Charlotte traded her legal career to write about happily ever afters in the City of Dreams. Charlotte loves to challenge her heroines and heroes with a crisis and watch them figure out how strong they really are while they fall in love.

Why do you like writing military heroes? A military hero is so often such a complex individual. I’m interested in why these men and women join the military in the first place. Of course for love of country but patriotism alone isn’t the reason why many serve. I like looking underneath the surface to discover the full person inside the military persona.

Sonnet Coupled

By

Roxanne Howard

 

+Meet the hero, Griffith Parker

Hero’s name, rank and serial number current or former): Griffith Parker, E-4 (Corporal)

Branch of the service: Marines

What is his most heroic trait? Selfless service. Griffith is incredibly selfless and protective, and will put his life on the line for others to keep them safe.

What kind of woman is his perfect match? Someone who cares about serving and helping people. Griffith has a tender heart beneath his tough and chiseled exterior, and he believes in helping people. He likes women who are kind, brave, and altruistic at their core.

Why do you like writing military heroes? Because I served with some amazing people, and I don

’t think there’s anywhere on earth where you meet people quite like whom you meet in the military. Their special characters and personas deserve to be written about and celebrated.

Blurb:

ER nurse Sonnet Mendoza’s new housemate Griffith Parker proves there is more to a man than meets the eye, and shows her there’s more to life than just her career.

ALWAYS FAITHFUL

Sheltered and cosseted, Sonnet Mendoza abided by her papi’s wishes her whole life: no boys, studies first and always. Now an ER nurse in a busy Chicago hospital, medical school is so close Sonnet can taste it. Just like her father always wanted. Just like she can taste all the things she wants—like Griffith Parker, the man of her dreams and her new housemate.

Working “graves” in a large hospital as a security guard while attending the police academy during the day doesn’t leave ex-Marine Griffith Parker any personal time, but after meeting the beautiful Sonnet Mendoza, business as usual is anything but. Sassy, smart…and interested in him, too? Except, she’s made an art of keeping her distance, and she’s been clear that her plans don’t include him. But the heart wants what the heart wants. His wants Sonnet. He’ll put it on the line to win her.
