So as most of you know my DH Denny just retired Jan of this year after serving in the US Navy for 24 years. He mostly served on fast attack submarines mixed in with some shore duty as a recruiter and sub support, his only surface ship ( otherwise known as a target) was a sub tender and he finished on his State’s Name sake the USS West Virginia a Boomer in the submarine community. He also did a stint on loan to the Army in Iraq as an IA where he was in charge of about 300 sailors maintaining and operating some base defenses.     Denny is the third from the left.

Then we have his young cousin whom I have spoken about many times, PFC Jessica Lynch a former POW, here is a picture of Jess and Denny.

   If I can catch her around town I’ll get Jess to sign a copy of her book by Rick Bragg.  I Am A Soldier Too.  

As you can see both of our family have lots of military, mine goes clear back to the revolutionary war.

Well please don’t leave your email in the comments but do leave a meaningful comment and tell me about any military member you know, follow that rule or you won’t be entered in for the giveaway. Oh and you’ll have to come back on Nov. 16th to see if you win because I won’t chase you around.

But the good part is you are not required to follow me, I hate rafflecopter and I hate having to follow a site to win, so I don’t require you to do something I don’t like to do…..kinda like eating peas…but I love peas, lol. I hope you take a look at my site and decide you like it enought to follow me but if not well, thanks for stopping by anyway.

So what am I giving away????

So those that follow that simple rule will have a chance at winning the first book from 3 of my favorite series that feature prior military.

First we have Cindy Gerard and her BOI’s the Black Ops Incorporated series Show No Mercy  

The sultry heat . . .

Only two things can compel journalist Jenna McMillan back to Buenos Aires after terrorists held her captive there just months before: a rare interview with a shadowy billionaire and the memory of the dark and dangerous man who saved her. . . .

Hides the deadliest threats . . .

Bad guys, bombs, and bullets are Gabriel Jones’s way of life. But he’ll never forget the brash redhead he rescued not so long ago . . . or the passionate kiss they shared before he sent her packing.

And exposes the deepest desires. . . .

Now, forced together by a bombing at the National Congress, Jenna and Gabe confront the urgent longings that simmer between them. But this surprise meeting is no coincidence. A ruthless enemy stalks them with deadly precision. The question is . . . if they make it out alive, will Gabe turn his back on Jenna . . . again?

Then we have from Maya Banks her KGI series ( Kelly Group International) and  The Darkest Hour  

The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super elite, top secret, family-run business. Qualifications: High intelligence, rock hard body, military background. Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering. Handling jobs the US government can’t…

It’s been one year since ex-Navy SEAL Ethan Kelly last saw his wife Rachel alive. Overwhelmed by grief and guilt over his failures as a husband, Ethan shuts himself off from everything and everyone.

His brothers have tried to bring Ethan into the KGI fold, tried to break through the barriers he’s built around himself, but Ethan refuses to respond… until he receives  anonymous information claiming Rachel is alive.

To save her, Ethan will have to dodge bullets, cross a jungle, and risk falling captive to a deadly drug cartel that threatens his own demise.        And even if he succeeds, he’ll have to force Rachel to recover memories she can’t and doesn’t want to relive—the minute by minute terror of her darkest hour—for their love, and their lives, may depend on it.

Then we have Jessica Scott who is active duty herself and her first book Because of You, this is an e-book copy    A Coming Home novel

From the war-torn streets of Baghdad to the bittersweet comforts of the home front, two wounded hearts navigate the battlefield of coming home from war in this explosive eBook original from newcomer Jessica Scott.

Keeping his men alive is all that matters to Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison. But meeting Jen St. James the night before his latest deployment makes Shane wonder if there’s more to life than war. He leaves for Iraq remembering a single kiss with a woman he’ll never see again—until a near fatal attack lands him back at home and in her care.

Jen has survived her own brush with death and endured its scars. And yet there’s a fire in Shane that makes Jen forget all about her past. He may be her patient, but when this warrior looks her in the eyes, she feels—for the first time in a long time—like a woman. Shane is too proud to ask for help, but for Jen, caring for him is more than a duty—it’s a need. And as Jen guides Shane through the fires of healing, she finds something she never expected—her deepest desire.

Here is the trailer link
