I don’t know why, but for the longest time, I wouldn’t write military romances. Sure I’d have an occasional ex-military hero, but never a soldier, sailor or marine on active duty, until recently.
As a former Army and Air Force reservist, I don’t know what my problem was. I love the military and the people who serve. They give so much of themselves and put their lives on the line defending our great country. They’re to be admired and thanked for their selfless service. Now that I’ve gotten a few military stories under my belt, I can’t get enough of them!
Many of you know that not only do I write as Myla Jackson, but I’m also Elle James. I started writing military romances last year with SEALS HONOR. I’ve since written SEALS DESIRE and SEALS EMBRACE. SEALS HONOR is available now and SEALS DESIRE will be by April 23rd. SEALS EMBRACE can be found in the SEALS OF SUMMER boxed set now for only 99 cents! It’s a bargain with 10 stories by 10 great authors. I’ll eventually publish SEALS EMBRACE by itself. I have 3 more SEAL stories I want to write this year in that series.
But I had so much fun writing them as Elle James, I wanted to write some military hero brothers as Myla Jackson. I have the Magnus brothers coming out starting this year with WYATT’S WAR and MACK’S WITNESS. I had a lot of fun writing these two stories because my heroes are military, but they are in civilian settings in places I know and love. San Antonio, TX and Ireland! The men bring their skills to use as they protect the women they fall in love with from dangerous undesirables.
It’s going to be a year full of Military stories as I’m also writing a SEAL story for Harlequin as Elle James. I’m a very busy writer and having fun writing military. Stay tuned for lots of reading material this year and next!
