Worlds and Boxes of SEALs Oh My!

Band of Bachelors: Lucas will
debut 8/4/15
Continuing on with Cat Johnson's post from earlier this month, I was honored to be invited to be a launch author in her Kindle World series, Hot SEALs. I was really excited to be part of this project. Unfortunately, I have had to pull out. But my novella, will be released in early August anyway, but just under my name, not the World name. I wish Cat and the ladies all the success they so richly deserve! They've been super to work with.

Cat and I first worked together a couple of years ago, but last year we also did Hot Alpha SEALs, which made all the bestseller lists.

Band of Bachelors is my new SEAL Brotherhood Series. It chronicles the plight of five bachelor SEALs who are the best of the best at what they do on the battlefield, in training and in the bedroom, but totally suck when it comes to relationships. Here's a quote from Connie, (my hero's soon-to-be-ex-wife), describing her SEAL husband, Lucas Shipley:

"I got tired of being all alone and scared to death while he was overseas. And then when he came home, it was either he wanted to screw day and night, or he wouldn’t want to do anything. He’d just watch T.V. The kids would be screaming and he’d be like comatose. And the staying out late, drinking with the guys. Marcy, he was married and hanging out with all the single SEALs, and getting into trouble. He’s got these loser friends who have messed up their marriages too, bad influence on him. He didn’t like to talk about feelings, especially my feelings.  He was like, “So, join a gym, or why not take up a hobby, like quilting or gardening? I mean, really? I’m trying to raise two kids all my myself, and he’s streaking out there clear across the world from me, and doing who knows what he couldn’t talk about – Marcy it was all just too much.”

I'll be releasing this as a full length novel in September, but this novella will debut in Cat's Hot SEALs Kindle Worlds launch on 8/4/15. There is, unfortunately, no preorder button for it, but August 4th is close enough that you don't have to wait too long. To tide you over, I've got a little
audio snippet prepared by my world-class and awesome buttery-voiced narrator, J.D. Hart. I know you're gonna fall in love with Lucas, just like I have. This narration is a scene when the hero and heroine first meet.

Blurb: Special Operator Lucas Shipley thought his troubles were past him, when he discovers they’ve only just begun. Recently separated from his wife of five years, he gets some unwelcomed news.  He thought his living arrangement, with four other separated or divorced buddies from SEAL Team 3, was temporary.  Now, he understands he has to move on with his life.

Marcy Gelland is one of the smartest, most successful realtors in San Diego County. She’s hired by Lucas’ soon-to-be ex-wife to help her liquidate their joint holdings and help orchestrate a speedy departure from Lucas’ life. Based on what Marcy’s been told, Lucas deserves any amount of pain she or her client can dish out to him.

But when they are left alone together in the remote Northern California woods, they ignite a personal bonfire that threatens to burn down the whole forest.  Marcy is forced to see she has been misled.

Amidst the backdrop of hardened bachelor SEALs with their unsolicited, anti-long- term relationship advice, and a criminal gang operating nearby, Lucas must do what he’s always done and never gotten proper credit for: be the hero that saves the day.

So, Hope you enjoy my new series, starting with SEAL Brotherhood, Band of Bachelors: Lucas. Enjoy!!
