Military romance is loaded with sexy heroes in uniforms, but few sexy heroines. I wrote one in Saving Santa but here’s another. Many, many, many thanks to the awesome Cat Johnson and her Hot SEALs series Kindle World for giving me a reason to write it. And I thank Cat again for letting me republish the book after the program closed. I am very happy to get this joyful love story out to a wider audience.
This story is special to me because I’ve married two military men in my life. I’ve often been the person left behind when a soldier ships out for active duty. It’s hard on both the leaver and the one being left behind.
But oh the homecoming is very, very sweet…
Hope you enjoy this second chances love story with a military twist…
Once there was a very sexy little book written for a Kindle World. When the Kindle World program disappeared, the book could have as well, but it did not. Instead, the very awesome Carly Phillips waved her Kindle World Owner wand over it and gave me permission to republish it. This delights me because now I’m able to make this awesome little book available worldwide.
I’m writing a new trilogy for Robyn Peterman’s Magic and Mayhem Universe. The Baba Yaga Saga followed Hildy and Carol from childhood to the Baba Yaga test. The new trilogy, which I’m calling the Baba Yaga Adventures, picks up when they’re just getting started in their witchy careers. Book 1, “Whole Lot Of Shiftin’ Going On”, is about Hildy’s first big crisis as a healer. You’re going to love the fun and laughs in this light paranormal comedy romp.
I usually use my blog to talk about my books or the books of my author friends, but today is a tiny exception. I don’t know this author personally, but I know her story and totally understand her motivation.
She is writing honestly about a subject that has affected so many women I know. If this book makes you smile or laugh or even count your blessings that cancer has missed you, then this author has succeeded beyond her wildest dreams.
Even at her very young age, she is teaching us how to live with grace.
Check out this refreshing book and be charmed. I’ve included the Amazon link so you could read the preview but I’m sure the book is for sale everywhere.
I recently had the opportunity to interview some fellow paranormal authors. Today’s interview is with the awesome Debra Dunbar. Enjoy!
Hi Debra. Thanks for letting me interview you!
What’s the inside scoop on the book you’re promoting in the sale? Tell us what’s special about it and if it’s part of a series.
Demons of Desire is book 1 of the Half-breed series, a sexy Urban Fantasy set in a different cool destination for each novel: New Orleans, Maui, Hel (hell), Napa Valley, and Northern Italy. Although Hel is more hot than cool!
What’s your favorite writing ritual?
Writecations. When I know I need to get some serious word-count in, I try to schedule time away from home. Sometimes it’s a local B&B, sometimes it’s a cabin up in the mountains or the lake. Getting away from the daily distractions really fires up the muse. And when I can’t manage even a local writecation, I head to a little pub in town with a dozen microbrews on tap and some amazing Old Bay dry-rub wings and sit up at the bar with my laptop. The bartenders all know me and joke that I should have a little brass name tag on the back of my bar stool.
If you could have dinner with someone (dead, alive, fictional or real) who would it be and why?
Julia Child. The food would be amazing and she always struck me as a fun, interesting person to hang out with. We’d drink a lot of wine, eat rich food loaded with butter, and end up besties, I know!
Anything you want to tell the readers?
If what you’re reading doesn’t make you laugh out loud at least once, find another book! Unless you’re one of those serious literary fiction types. In that case, read on.
Some fun fast facts about Debra . . .
What’s your favorite color? Red. Hides the bloodstains almost as well as black and doesn’t make me look like a middle-aged goth.
What show did you last binge-watch? Alone. I’m not a huge fan of reality shows, but the whole survival thing was intriguing.
Are you a beer or wine person? Both? I like beer in the summer and wine in the winter.
What food helps your writing mojo? Grandma Utz potato chips
What paranormal species is your fav to write? I love to write about Demons. They’re naughty and sexy and complex. Ever since I read Paradise Lost, I’ve had a thing for the Fallen.
Are your a book plotter or a pantser? I’m a pantser until 2/3 of the way through my first draft, then I become a plotter.
Are you a fan of boxers or briefs? Boxers. Gotta let that stuff breathe, my man.
Who’s your favorite band or singer? Rob Zombie
Meet the Author
Debra lives in a little house in the woods with her three sons, and a Noah’s ark of four-legged family members.
She drives a gigantic diesel SUV, couldn’t carry a tune if you duct taped it to her back, and enjoys an occasional cosmopolitan (heavy on the vodka).
On a good day, she jogs and horseback rides, hopefully managing to keep the horse between herself and the ground.
Her only known superpower is ‘Identify Roadkill’.
