In my latest Carina Press release, AT ATTENTION, I’ve returned to the world of Out of Uniform, my series about navy SEALs and the men who love them. AT ATTENTION features a widowed dad and his best friend’s little brother, and Dylan gets ample opportunity to ogle Apollo in his uniform over the course of the book. While writing this series, I’ve come to wonder what it is that readers and writers love about SEALs and other Special Forces heroes. Here’s my list of things that I love, both as a reader and writer, about these special individuals.

  • These guys are fun to write and read because they don’t run from danger—they go running headlong into it, and you can trust that in a crisis, they’ll be first in line to help.
  • Special Forces men and women are some of the most highly trained and skilled people on the planet. Whether it’s an explosion you need or rappelling down a cliff, they have you covered.
  • These are people used to putting others first—their teammates, their country, their mission. And later, when they fall in love, you just know that they are going to put the other person first, too.
  • They wouldn’t leave a teammate behind, put their mission first, can’t be bought out and always know the right thing to do. Those sorts of morals make great partners.
  • Have you seen many military romance covers? It’s ALL about the abs. These men are FIT. And their muscles have a purpose, which makes them all the sexier.

How about you? What do you love about Special Forces heroes (and heroines depending on the book!)? Do you have a favorite book featuring a military hero or heroine? Share! And if you’re looking for more military heroes to fall in love with, I hope you’ll give the Out of Uniform series a try!
