Seduced By The Soldier

Thank you for stopping by, Readers!

I have such a tremendous respect for our soldiers that I wanted to write a romcom that featured one. But how to do it in a way that was respectful and fun? Well, that’s how Blake, the hero I’d created, came to knock at the door to my muse’s living quarters, way down in the basement of my subconscious, demanding that he be allowed to tell his story.

Zandra, the heroine, was different, though. As a travel photographer, she’s following the path that has always interested me, a fact she’d pointed out when she showed up at the door with Blake. Let’s just say La Muse caved, abandoning her half-consumed bourbon and cigar!

Using the letters that spell the hero and heroine’s names, here are some fun features about SEDUCED BY THE SOLDIER:

Best friend’s little sister. That’s how Blake’s determined to view Zandra, but it doesn’t last!
Law school. This is what Blake’s got his sights on, he just has to wait until his mother finishes medical school before he can leave the military for law school.
Always overprotective, a trait Zandra finally plows through and gets him to relax.
Knows how to cook! (Sigh. I had to feature a trait I’d want in my dream guy!)
Eventually learns to relax, which comes back to bite him in the a$$.


Zero experience when it comes to travel. This is the unfortunate circumstance she finds herself in, and what requires her to have a travel guide.
Accounting. The job she’d left at the family business that she doesn’t want to go back to!
Not afraid of a challenge when it comes to doing what she wants, and she tests Blake’s patience on more than one occasion.
Determined. She’s determined to prove her parents wrong and make photojournalism her career.
Rideshare experience in Switzerland—what a laugh!
Adventure—what Zandra seeks.

Here’s a better idea of what the book’s about:

Zandra York just got her big break, photographing a major project for a travel magazine. So what if she’s never traveled out of the country before? Or that she’s more adept at deciphering fraudulent financial statements than reading German train schedules? Her brother Jackson is on his way to act as her guide, and she can’t wait to experience Europe with him.

But when Jackson’s overprotective best friend gets off the plane instead, Zandra knows this will not end well.

There isn't a damned thing Special Forces instructor Blake Monroe wouldn't do for his best friend, but babysit Zandra when Jackson is unexpectedly called away on a mission? Nope. Not on the list. Especially not when she proves to be more trouble than he can handle—and far too tempting.

Between accidentally hiring a hearse as their rideshare, an unprovoked goat attack, and photographing erotic-shaped chocolates, Blake and Zandra can’t keep their hands off each other. But Zandra’s new career is about to send her all over the world and Blake is finally ready to settle down after his next deployment.

He’ll never ask her to give up her dreams. And she’ll never ask him to give up his.

So if you’re looking for a sassy, sexy, fun romcom (and who isn’t, right? *wink*), pick up your copy of SEDUCED BY THE SOLDIER here:
