Before there were bikers, or fighters, or even good old-fashioned jerks, there were Navy SEALs. They put the bad in badass because, well…it’s their job.
Navy SEAL Maverick Hart has everything. Women want him. Grown men idolize him. Little boys want to grow up and be like him. The job, the glory—it’s all his. Not because it’s handed to him…because he works hard for it. The second his sights lock on something, he owns it—or destroys it. Unfortunately he does both at the same time.
Windsor Forbes only takes calculated risks in her profession and in her personal life. After being left at the altar by the only person she’s ever loved, the very last thing she’s looking for is a relationship—especially the insane brand an arrogant Navy SEAL is offering. Hesitant, yet trusting to a fault, she gives in.
She knew she shouldn’t take the chance, especially a second time, but love is irrational and their love is perfect, infallible. Or so she thought…
The downfall to having everything is you have that much more to lose. A man like Maverick can’t have it all without something slipping out of grasp.
Crazy people perish for love.
Good people live for it.
Love doesn’t die. No matter how many bullets you put in it.
*Due to sexual content and graphic language this book is intended for readers 18+
Why Write A Navy SEAL Romance?
by Rachel Robinson
I could tell you about what it’s like to live with a Navy SEAL, but I probably shouldn’t. My perception is jaded anyways. I could tell you specifics about their never-ending “training” trips, secret details that CNN isn’t privy to, the color of underwear they don under the hot-as-sin uniforms (they don’t wear any), but those details are probably better left unspoken. Plus, I wouldn’t want spies casing my house and taking photos of me while I walk my Sphynx cat on a leash, bra-less, at seven a.m.
So, what can I tell you? I can write a novel about Navy SEALs. I can show you a love story that is fictional, yet so full of truths that you’ll find yourself questioning the odd mix of lies and facts. That sort of defines fiction on a larger scale, I think. How well your truths can be masked by lies.
People, and I use the word people loosely, always tell writers to “write what you know.” I hate to say it, because I think clichés are horrid, but they’re right. Those people are right. And that is where my personal smoking gun resides.
I’m submersed in the world of SEALs. The Mavericks. The Frogmen. The original badasses. One in particular is my muse, the person who mows my grass (heh), cooks dinner because I’m a miserable chef, and fills my storage spaces with extremely expensive tactical gear (double heh). For all of these reasons, and because real life “experience” is a rarity in this particular genre, I knew CRAZY GOOD needed writing--in both hero and heroine point of views. In my novel you get to be behind the gun, inside the mind of Maverick, a man who strives for perfection in everything. Then on the flip, Windsor’s view, the delicate balance of frailty and acceptance in an unfamiliar relationship, dealing with the strong highs and desperate, depraved lows.
Why write CRAZY GOOD? It’s truth. It’s fiction. It’s a novel injected with star-quality reality. Reading It may make your heart flutter, clog your tear ducts, or at the very least sizzle everything below your waist. The allure of a novel about a Navy SEAL? The FBI estimates there are 300 imposters for every living Navy SEAL. There is a better chance of meeting a former NFL player than of meeting a legitimate Navy SEAL.
You want to meet one? Maybe I can make the introductions…
Ummm sure Rachel, I'd love to meet one... I'm still stuck on the commando part... *drooling w/a glazed expression*
