Military Muscle Blog Tour with Rebecca Zanetti, Marilyn Pappano & Jessica Scott (Top 5/#Giveaway)

We have three talented authors joining us today with their new military romances and some thoughts on heroines in military romance stories. Enjoy!

Top 5 Characteristics a Heroin Needs to Go Toe-to-Toe with her Military Man

Rebecca Zanetti:
2. Brains.  Definitely brains.  Heroines need to be smart (because most women are) in order to level the playing field with a strong, determined hero.  Never forget that smart girls are sexy.

2. A sense of humor.  Sometimes being able to laugh at a situation lightens the tension, and military men have a lot of tension.  Humor can make the difference in emotional and even physical health.

3. Determination.  Sometimes confused with stubbornness and strong will…but that’s okay.  Every woman should be comfortable standing up for herself, and every woman should be able to stand up to even the most Alpha of a guy.

4. Kindness.  Sometimes our heroes are wounded, and everybody needs a soft place to land.  Kindness and gentleness make it possible for a hero to let down his guard.

5. Her own life.  I think it’s really important that we have something of our own as women.  We give so much to the kids, to our heroes, that it’s crucial we have a little something for ourselves.  Whether it’s just time alone to read or pursue a hobby, a healthy heroine makes for a better relationship with the hero.

Marilyn Pappano:
1. Stubbornness. Always important when dealing with a man, right?

2. Knowing what really counts. My husband was away for training on my birthday, his birthday and our anniversary for four years running.

3. Resilience. One day after unpacking our household goods, we got the word that his ship was going into the yards two states away and we were going, too.

4. The ability to be half a couple today, then single for the next six, eight or twelve months, and then part of a couple again. (And with kids, you're mom and dad during those months.)

5. A sense of humor. Vital!

Jessica Scott:
She’s got to be able to stand on her own. Nothing worse than a heroine that needs to be saved from her own shadow.  Top five traits:

1. Strong

2. Able to laugh at the gallows humor

3. Tolerant (loving a military man isn’t easy)

4. Confident

5. Insomniac (because military guys know how to go for hours without a lot of it)

The One Man She Can't Have

Matt Dean was born to fight…and kill. A member of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be the perfect soldiers with an expiration date. Now, with time running out, he's gone rogue in a relentless quest for the one person who can save them. His mission leads him to Charmed, Idaho…and to a beautiful woman with eyes like emeralds and a body made for pleasure.

The One Woman He Can't Resist

Laney Jacobs knows the mysterious, handsome stranger is trouble from the moment he walks into her bar, looking for a job. She's spent years running from her own past—the last thing she needs is a romantic entanglement. But Matt's strong arms offer her protection, and his gentle touch promises passion unlike anything she's ever known. As lethal forces surround them, revealing explosive secrets about Matt's past and putting everything—and everyone—he holds dear in danger, can he save them all before time runs out?

Keegan always wanted to be a father . . . someday. So when his ex-girlfriend disappears, leaving her daughter in his care, Keegan's hands are tied. He has to find the girl's father. His search leads him to Tallgrass and to a beautiful brunette widow who has no idea her husband was ever unfaithful. What begins as a friendship
soon ignites into something far more and gives him the courage to be the kind of man-and father-he always dreamt he could be. But his secret still stands between them.

Can a battle-scarred warrior . . .

Stay sober. Get deployed. Lead his platoon. Those are the only things that matter to Sergeant First Class Reza Iaconelli. What he wants is for everyone to stay out of his way; what he gets is Captain Emily Lindberg telling him how to deal with his men. Fort Hood's newest shrink is smart as a whip and sexy as hell. She's also full of questions-about the army, its soldiers, and the agony etched on Reza's body and soul.

. . . open his heart to love?

Emily has devoted her life to giving soldiers the care they need-and deserve. Little does she know that means facing down the fierce wall of muscle that is Sergeant Iaconelli like it's just another day at the office. When Reza agrees to help her understand what makes a soldier tick, she's thrilled. Too bad it doesn't help her unravel the sexy warrior in front of her who stokes her desire and touches a part of her she thought long dead. He's the man who thinks combat is the only escape from the demons that haunt him. The man who needs her most of all . . .
