I am so grateful to my beautiful friend Isabella for having me back on the blog today, celebrating on the release day of my new W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces book, Surrendering To Her Sergeant.
I’d asked Isabella’s assistant, a beautiful and amazing woman in her own right, if there were any special things they wanted in the post for today. Rachel’s response was perfect. Since today is Veteran’s Day, why not make this about the men and women who have dedicated their lives to serve us in our nation’s military?
As you likely know, the W.I.L.D. Boys series itself focuses on a fictional set of amazing men who serve in the First Special Forces group, based out of the beautiful Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma, Washington. My research about the JBLM family has rendered me floored and moved. They are such a strong, steadfast group of people, and I openly salute them, civilian family members included, for their service to our country.
Here’s a few other cool things I’ve learned about JBLM…
--It occupies over 415,000 acres of land.
--It employs over 25,000 people, and is the 3rd largest employer in the state of Washington.
--By 2016, the base will support 136,124 soldiers, airmen, dependents, employees and contractors, plus 117,000 retired veterans.
--It is one of the most requested assignments in the military.
--It is home not only to the First Special Forces Group, but the Stryker Brigade Combat Teams, I Corps and the 62nd Airlift Wing.
--It is actually composed of two separate bases due to being so big: JBLM Main and JBLM North.
--It is known for its exemplary training programs that are offered to all branches of the military.
-- During the summer months, JBLM North hosts the Leader Development & Assessment Course, a capstone program for the Army’s ROTC.
As we all know, life in the Special Forces often requires travel, too. For the newest book in the series, the boys are in Hollywood, California—battling not only terrorists, but paparazzi and posers! It’s definitely a different setting than the first two books, and I hope you enjoy this unique adventure that features Ethan Archer, who is a newly-minted Sergeant in this book, as well as Ava Chestain, who you got to meet in Handcuffed By Her Hero.
Drop me a line and let me know what you think of the book! And to all of our selfless Veterans: THANK YOU.
Surrendering to Her Sergeant -- Available Today!
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?
