Military Romance Week: Author Catherine Mann (Feature/Giveaway)

The fabulous author joining us today isn't a stranger to military romances seeing as she is married to her very own fly boy as well as having several other members of the military in her family. It's no wonder she writes such believable and heart-felt stories! Catherine Mann was unable to join us today as she is expecting her first grandchild, congratulations Catherine, but she sent me several books & swag to give away to our readers! And best wishes to her daughter as well as her son in-law who is currently deployed in the Middle East. You can find a picture of these high school sweethearts taken right before his deployment, HERE

After barely surviving enemy torture, Captain Chuck Tanaka doesn’t trust himself to do more than ride a desk—but new orders leave him no choice. Assigned to the investigation of a mob boss whose luxury cruise ship is reportedly a hub for terrorist activity, Tanaka goes undercover. His target: JoLynn Taylor, the mob boss’s daughter.
As a child, JoLynn saw her beloved uncle murdered. Since then, she’s stayed far away from her father’s crooked empire. But when he falls ill, she returns, hoping to mend the gap between them. Instead, she finds herself on the run, one step ahead of unknown enemies. The only thing keeping her alive is the man she knows as Charles Tomas, the only man she’s ever been able to trust.
Unfortunately, he’s also the man determined to destroy her family…

 After a dark ops malfunction, Major David Berg finds himself dead center in a military trial. It’s a race against time to root out the truth, and Major Sophie Campbell isn’t making that any easier. The hot JAG wants to bring down David’s unit and fast. His testimony is crucial to winning a case that will make her career. All Sophie has to do is ignore this witness’s unflappable charm, his unnerving good looks, and a strong, solid presence that commands her attention. It’s not easy for David, either. His attraction to this take-charge beauty is turning him inside out. But these adversaries have more in common than secret, mutual desire. There’s a traitor somewhere in the dark ops and now, to find him, David and Sophie must work together—relentlessly, tirelessly, and so intimately it could be damn near fatal.

Major Hank Renshaw knows almost everything there is to know about Gabrielle Ballard. Except for what it's like to touch her. Because Gabrielle is his best friend's fiancée. Or she was. Until his buddy died in battle—right after making Hank promise to find her…...
So now Hank's in New Orleans. In Gabrielle's apartment. Watching her nurse her infant son. It's not honor that draws him to her. It's not duty that makes him stay. It's need he's feeling, plain and simple—the desire to take the woman he's always wanted and finally make her his own.

  1. I am intrigued by the secret divisions of the military. In Australia, one of the divisions is the SAS. These men go through such rigorous training, do such dangerous missions, and we only find out the details many years later.

  2. Aloha, Catherine! Thanks to your family for their military service! I'd love to see a "desk jockey" find himself in a situation where he/she has to rise to the occasion!

  3. I love Navy in general. Love the uniforms...

  4. Navy, Marines, Seals, any branch. There can never be enough military books.
    Congrats on the first grandchild.

  5. I love stories about Navy Seals, Marine Special Ops, Army Rangers and Air Force pilots, all of the special forces that need lots of extra training, etc.

  6. I am from an Army family and I like to read about them. I often wonder why we have so much on Navy Seals but what about the Green Beret.
