#FreebieFriday JUST ONE NIGHT #Military #Romance

The cooler temperature this morning was a sure reminder that fall is just days away. I love this time of the year at the beach. I think it’s one of the best times to go! Saturday I plan on going into Ocean Grove for their British Car Show. I love looking at all the beautiful automobiles, especially the MGs. I always wanted one as a kid.

Today I’ve got a free read of JUST ONE NIGHT for you today! JUST ONE NIGHT is the first book in the Take a Chance Military Romance series.

Here is a little blurb for the story! You can download the free read here: http://www.instafreebie.com/free/mpx6b

#TeaserTuesday EMBRACE THE NIGHT Military Romance

EmbracetheNightIt was difficult for me to write EMBRACE THE NIGHT. The Army hero, Zack Taylor, is a below-the-knee amputee and imagining how he would feel as he returns to civilian life was tough. I also did a good amount of research to learn about how Zack would do some of the activities he used to do before he was wounded in battle.

It was also rough to handle the heroine, Samantha Whittaker. You met Samantha in ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE and she is as wounded as Zack, but just in a different way.

In EMBRACE THE NIGHT, these two find the strength to deal with their physical and emotional wounds through the power of love. I hope you’ll check out this new novella in the TAKE A CHANCE military romance series.

I’m happy to say that this story is also part of the awesome HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO box set that’s specially priced at 99 cents and also available through Kindle Unlimited.

#WriteWed #Military Heroes in the Coast Guard

US-CoastGuard-Seal.svgI’m in the midst of writing ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE which features sexy retired Navy Captain Mark Smith and veteran Army Staff Sergeant Bridget Sullivan. If the Sullivan name is familiar, it’s because you met Bridget’s younger sister Maggie in ONE LAST NIGHT. It’s also familiar because you meet both Mark and Bridget in STAY THE NIGHT, Rafe and Elena’s story.

One thing I always think about while writing one of these novellas is how I can give you a quick intro to some of the characters you might see in a future book. In ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE you’ll get to meet Lieutenant Commander Samantha Whittaker who is now in the Coast Guard and veteran Seabee Zack Rodriguez.

Why the Coast Guard (and I promise you’ll see more about the Seabees in another Write Wednesday post)? Well, I happened to be rescued by a very charming Coast Guard vet when I was stranded on a hotel balcony during an RT Convention in Orlando. To this day we both smile whenever we see each other and recall that very interesting (and embarassing) incident. You see, my friends and I had gone out there to have a glass of wine on a beautiful day. As we powershut a very recalcitrant sliding glass door, the security bar came loose and came down perfectly, trapping us on the balcony.

Luckily our hero walked by and seeing our dilemma, called for hotel security to come free us. He then graciously offered to get us some more wine as well. LOL!

So in his honor and to honor the service of our Coast Guard veterans, I thought it was time to highlight that branch of the military in one of the upcoming TAKE A CHANCE series novellas.

So here’s a little bit more about the Coast Guard, my Write Wednesday inspiration for EMBRACE THE NIGHT (late spring 2015), my story with Samantha and Zack.

Did you know the Coast Guard just celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the act to create the Coast Guard? You can click here to read more about the Coast Guard Act. However, the Coast Guard has been around since 1790. The 1915 Act was really more of a change of name of the service.

During times of peace, the Coast Guard is part of the Department of Homeland Security (as of 2003). During times of war, the Coast Guard is part of the Navy. Coast Guard heroes like Douglas Munro, a Medal of Honor winner, have saved countless lives during both peace time and war.

The Coast Guard is one of five military branches. Its motto is “Semper Paratus” in Latin which means “Always Ready.”

The Coast Guard does have an academy which is located in New London, CT. You can get more facts by clicking here.

And now here’s a look at the Coast Guard in action! If you can’t see the video below, click here to see the Coast Guard in action in Texas!
