Call to Honor:
A SEAL Brotherhood Novel
Book #1
by Tawny Weber

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

“No man left behind” is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing— Diego’s honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers...and only one woman has them.

Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger’s path.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT TWO:

IT PAYS TO be a winner.

And Diego Torres was a big believer in winning.

But it was the winning that he liked.

The competition.

The thrill of testing his skills, pushing his limits. Of knowing he was better than his adversary.

Yeah. He liked knowing he was the best.

He didn’t do it for reward.

Especially not when the reward came by way of the pomp and pageantry of a ceremony like today. Standing onstage in front of the various platoons that made up SEAL Team 7, listening to Admiral Cree pontificate was a pain in the ass. What made it worse wasn’t the couple hundred sets of eyes inspecting him or the discomfort of his dress whites, too tight across the shoulders.

It was the damned shoes. Diego’s toes pinched in the mirror-bright black patent leather, begging him to flex. He didn’t, of course. Not while standing at attention. But damn. Give him a pair of combat boots any day.

As the sun baked through his cap and the heat of the morning swirled around, he wondered what yahoo had decided to hold this ceremony outdoors. And why it felt so much hotter standing in the San Diego sun in whites than it did in the Afghan desert in full combat gear. Probably because combat gear fit him better.

Diego had spent a large portion of his life fighting over the wrong things. He’d fought over turf. He’d fought over gang colors. Hell, if the mood struck, he’d have fought over just how blue the sky was. It’d taken a bullet barely missing his heart to clue him in to the fact that maybe the things he was fighting over simply weren’t worth dying for.

INTERVIEW:

Good morning Tawny!  Welcome to Fabulous and Brunette!  We are thrilled to have you here and can’t wait to learn more about you and your new book, “Call to Honor: A SEAL Brotherhood Novel Book #1.”

Do you have any tattoos?  Where? When did you get it/them? Where are they on your body?
I have 4 tattoos. I love ink as a form of self expression, but am super picky about what I want to express with my body.  So I have one on my ankle, another on my back just below my neck, my largest is on the small of my back and I have a small one on my wrist.  I’ve gotten them all between 2000 and 2013.  I suppose that means I’m due for another one.
 
Is your life anything like it was two years ago?
In a lot of ways, my life is the same as it was two years ago.   I’m still a wife and a mother. I’m still an author who adores the romance genre.  I still have to exercise like crazy to keep a handle on my weight and I love chocolate like crazy.  The only real change that comes to mind is the challenges in publishing that have shifted over the last two years.  It’s an ongoing learning curve in an ever-changing landscape.

How long have you been writing?
I began writing in 2002, and sold my first book in 2006.   That book, DOUBLE DARE, was published in May of 2007, making this my ten year anniversary!!! In that time I’ve published over 40 more books!

What advice would you give a new writer just starting out?
To understand Goal, Motivation and Conflict.  Not just in the craft of writing, but in the course of their career.  If a writer knows their writing goal, it’s easier to achieve.  If they know why they want it, they can tap into that motivation to keep going when things get tough. And by being aware of the conflict they’ll face in the course of achieving that goal, they can better strategize plans to overcome or work around the conflict.   A lot of writers’ goals are the same.  To earn a living at their craft or to hit a bestseller list are strong, popular goals.  Some of the conflicts are universal, and some are personal.  The state of the industry is a conflict we all have to face, but family support varies from author to author, for instance.  But the motivation for their goal is one thing that is truly unique to every author.  Knowing that, I think, is the strongest tool toward achieving their dream.

Tell us something about your newest release that is NOT in the blurb.

This is the blurb for CALL TO HONOR:

“No man left behind” is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing— Diego’s honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers...and only one woman has them.

Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger’s path.

So something that isn’t included is that Harper is actually suspected of treason!  She’s being tested and judged for a crime she isn’t even aware they think she’s committed.

Thank you so much for spending time with Fabulous and Brunette readers and sharing your exciting new book with us!  We wish you all the best on your book tour!
