JimmyBULL (Red Hot & Blue series) Cat Johnson Military Romance

Military Romance Reads

I had no plans to post a blog today. I’m much too busy worrying about my one active-duty military consultant who is counting the months until he returns home from Afghanistan, while my other is packing because he can count in days his departure to the same region. But then I saw the mass amounts of others posting and felt left out. 🙁 So call me a sheep, but here I am, following the flock.

So here you go, the military heroes who I write to honor the real military men in my life. Some are soldiers and cowboys both, some are Marines, some are special ops while others are tankers and infantrymen, but all encompass the qualities of the very special men who inspired them.

FYI- BB Dalton is FREE and Cat Snips, my anthology which is also FREE, contains 2 military-themed short stories (Fireworks and The Soldier and the Siren).

Heartbreaker Blog Hop Feb 8 – 11 *CLOSED*

One Night With a Cowboy by Cat JohnsonYeah, women love bad boys. The heartbreakers they fall for knowing the risk, hoping to be the one to reform them. But heartbreakers aren’t alway bad guys. Sometimes, they’re the good guys who break a girl’s heart trying to do the right thing. Sacrificing self and happiness for the greater good.

Tucker Jenkins, in ONE NIGHT WITH A COWBOY, releasing Feb. 26 and on preorder now, is this kind of hero. SPOILER ALERT: He breaks Becca’s heart, for a little while anyway, but he does it to protect her.

But never fear, because in my world when a man breaks a woman’s heart, but does it for the right reasons, karma or the goddess of love or fate or whoever is in charge of cosmic matters of the heart, makes sure things all work out for the lovers in the end.

Want to read an excerpt from One Night with a CowboyCLICK HERE.

So, readers, what kind of heartbreaker hero do you prefer ? The bad boy you want to see saved by the heroine? Or the good boy who sacrifices all for the greater good? Or maybe you love to hate the man who breaks the heroine’s heart so the hero can swoop in and save her? Comment to enter to win…

There are multiple prizes for this hop so keep reading to the end.

A Prince Among Men: Prince Harry in Afghanistan

Model Soldier (a Red, Hot, & Blue Novel)It was February of 2008. I’d written my military romance MODEL SOLDIER, set in Afghanistan, and as I watched the morning news, one story caught my attention. Britain’s Prince Harry had secretly been deployed to Afghanistan for 3 months. The news had just been leaked by the press and, now that he was exposed, Harry was being yanked out of the warzone. My writer’s brain was spinning. Can you say sequel? How perfect was this? I knew the Brits supplied air support to the forward operating bases where US and Afghani troops were stationed. A plot began to form–facts, wrapped in fiction. What if? What could have happened in this situation?

That is the basis of A PRINCE AMONG MEN (March 2013) , the follow-up book to MODEL SOLDIER (Dec 2012) in my Red, Hot & Blue series, being rereleased through Samhain Publishing (originally put out back in 2008 by Linden Bay Romance).

And how timely too, because as opposed to the climate in February 2008 when the 23-year old Harry was first, and secretly, deployed to Afghanistan (read about it in the Guardian), today, in 2012, the 28-year old Prince is in the news daily. Unfortunately, his presence is not only drawing attention but also enemy attacks endangering all the international troops stationed at Camp Bastion, where one of my military consultants is scheduled to go in 2013 if plans don’t change. (Read the BBC article BB Dalton (Red, Hot & Blue Bonus Read)about the attack).

So what now? I’m eyeball deep in edits on the 50K word PRINCE right now for the March eRelease. MODEL SOLDIER is already up for preorder for the December eRelease, and in preparation, I’ve managed to get the prequel to that story, my self-published Red, Hot & Blue bonus read, BB DALTON, up everywhere for FREE download (even on Amazon, which is quite a feat, I can tell you).

In the meantime I will continue to watch the real-life story unfold and hope for everyone’s safety.


All Hallows Eve Read

Fall fell here in the Hudson Valley region of New York. One day I was in shorts and flip flops, the next I was pawing through drawers, looking for the flannel winter PJs and contemplating that annual question–do I absolutely have to turn on the heat in the house or can I make it just a few more weeks?

Either way, it looks and feels like autumn with the leaves turning and falling, and the crisp chill in the air. It makes me think of Halloween and, coincidentally, I just discovered that there is now a movement called ALL HALLOWS READS, which encourages people to gift a spooky book to a friend on October 31st.

What a great idea! And guess what? I just happen to have one! And the best part? It’s FREE.

You can use All Romance eBooks GIFT feature to send someone you love my BLACK CAT. It’s got witches, and cats, and hot men turned into cats by witches. It’s got best girlfriends looking to have a good time, a novelty spell book and the surprise of a lifetime for one of the girls. It’s light and short but fun and sexy. I loved writing it and I hope you enjoy reading it.

You can download multiple formats of  the BLACK CAT short at ARe.

BLACK CAT is also part of my compilation of shorts call CAT SNIPS. If you are a Nook or a KOBO person, you can download my CAT SNIPS compilation for free at both of those sites and BLACK CAT is in that.

If you are KINDLE only, you can also get it in my CAT SNIPS, but evil Amazon keeps it priced at 99 cents no matter how many times I fill out that “Tell Cat Snips ~ A short story anthologyus about a lower price” field and try to get them to make it free.

You can also get CAT SNIPS free in multiple formats at Smashwords or in PDF only here at my site. All links are listed below.
