A SEAL’s Kiss: Let’s Party!

It’s Happy Dancing Time!!!  

Sven, bring in the dancing boys, please!  Cue the music.  Load the confetti in those balloons and let them fly.  

I’m so excited about this release.  Now, granted, I tend to be excited about all of my releases to one degree or another.  But this story is a special one to me because the heroine was so fun to write, and she’s one I put a lot of myself into.  Her friends call her a free spirit, but everyone knows they mean she’s a flake.  Now, granted, few people have called me a flake (to my face) but Sage’s interests and her pursuit to find her calling, her quest for bliss, that I can relate to. 

Its not that I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I grew up. As my stepmother likes to share, at a young ageM14 reading I informed everyone that I would grow up to be a mom, a gypsy and a writer.  And I pretty well stuck with these goals through my childhood.  But by seventeen, I realized that there weren’t a lot of Irish/German gypsys roaming around, that I’d have to get a college degree in English to be a ‘real writer’.  And being a mom?  My parents were pretty adamant that that goal remain on hold for a while.  

Eventually, I found a way to make it all work, in my own fashion.  The mom part was easy, and hands down the most amazing, joyful, blessed thing I’ve ever done.  And yes, I waited long enough that my parents were comfy being grandparents LOL.

I wasn’t actually a gypsy, but I did spend 10 years as a professional tarot reader and Reiki practitioner, roaming from new age store to psychic fair peddling my trade.  And I have not one, but two crystal balls now.

After the birth of my second daughter I was struggling to figure out what I wanted to do that’d meet all my requirements (the main one being to work from home since we were already home schooling and home is kinda the key word there). My husband asked me what I’d do if I could do anything in the world-no holds bard, my dream job.  Without thinking, I said romance author. I then immediately began piling on excuses for why I couldn’t… but he didn’t listen.  Being the pushy type, he told me to go forth and write, dammit.  

And so I went forth, I wrote.  And I found my bliss.  

Needless to say, it takes Sage in A SEAL’s Kiss a teensy bit longer.  But her hero is just as instrumental in her finding hers as mine was in my finding mine (and how’s that for a convoluted sentence?!)

Here’s a peek at A SEAL’s Kiss:

“You don’t think I’m a flake?”

     “I think the term that fits you best is free spirit.”

     “I likethat image,” she decided.  “It makes me sound like I should be running around outdoors, naked.”

     “I like that image,” he decided with the husky laugh she’d happily come to recognize as his horny alert. 

A SEALs Kiss

     Mmm, decisions, decisions.

     The temptation to go the naked route was overwhelming.

     But she’d come this far. And while she might be a free spirit, she wasn’t a chicken.  So she resisted the urge to pull her dress over her head.

     “Actually, I meant my blog.  You know, the posts I write. The causes I try to bring attention to.  Do you think it’s a waste of time?”

     “You’ve found homes for how many dogs?” he asked, tugging her off the path and over to the little gazebo at the base of the hill. 

     “Thirty or so,” she said.  She pulled her hand free so she had both free to wave over her head.  As if it were a vague number that didn’t matter instead of thirty-two beautiful, loyal animals who now had safe, loving homes. 

     “How much did you raise for that water project in Africa last year?”

     “You knew about that?”  She wished the moon was brighter so she could see his face.  Instead, it was shrouded in shadows, so all she could go on were his words. And those were surprising the hell out of her. 

     “You blogged about it, didn’t you?”

     “You really do read my blog?” Now she was grateful for the lack of light, since there was nothing attractive about her jaw hanging open.

     “Of course I read it.  I’ve donated, too.  Not always, but whenever I can.  I’ve been known to nag guys to donate sometimes, too,” he admitted, laughing quietly as he held out his hand to lead her up the steps of the gazebo. 

     “You got your big bad Navy pals to donate to my causes?” she asked, delighted. 

     “Hey, some guys push their daughter or nieces’ Girl Scout cookies.  I push charitable causes.”  His shrug was uncomfortable, like he wanted to brush off the conversation as fast as possible.  “Look, it’s no big deal.”

     “It is to me,” she admitted, lifting first one of his hands, then the other, to her mouth and brushing a kiss over his knuckles.  “It means everything to me.”

     “You’re kidding, right?”4 Sexy SEALs

     Sage blinked hard, not sure where the tears had come from or why, but knowing they were the bittersweet happy kind that she couldn’t run from.  

     After all, they were falling in love tears. 

And here’s my Party Challenge:  Finish this sentence for a chance to win!  I’ll award three commenters a copy of any of my previous SEAL releases (winners choice):

A SEAL’s Kiss is… ?

    A SEAL’s Kiss is life changing. (I wanted to say freaking awesome but restrained myself.)

    Congratulations on the release of A SEAL’s Kiss.

  • Jane says:

    Congrats on the release, Tawny. I’m guessing a SEAL’s kiss is rare since I haven’t had one. Ooh, now I want a crystal ball.

  • flchen1 says:

    Happy release day, Tawny! A SEAL’s Kiss is gonna be a bestseller! 😉 Woohoo!

  • Amy Conley says:

    A SEAL’S kiss is a promise honestly “sealed” with a kiss.

  • Mary Preston says:

    What fun!!

    A SEAL’s Kiss is memorable & more-ish.

  • Tawny, huge congratulations on your new release. Wow, you’re unstoppable at the moment. I’m convinced you must have 100 elves in the basement who keep toiling away while you go shoe shopping! I can’t wait to read this book – it looks fabulous.

    • Jeanne Adams says:

      Hmmmm, now there’s a vision! I’m thinking she does too… bwahahahah!! EIther that or she toils and the elves make her all her fabulous shoes….could be either

    • Tawny Weber says:

      Oh, those elves!!! I thought they were a secret 😉 Actually, they toil away while I lay on the couch eating bonbons and ordering my houseboys to rearrange the furniture. Usually Johnny Depp is feeding me peeled grapes between bonbon bites and Aerosmith is serenading me from the back patio.

      Oh wait…

      Yeah, the elves took one look at the amount of work they’d have to do, demanded a bigger raise than I could afford, then threw up their tiny hands and stormed out.

      But thank you for the congratulations 😀

  • Helen says:

  • Jeanne Adams says:

    Okay, you know it’s gotta be steamy, right? So a SEAL’s kiss is hot, wet and sexy! You have GOT to quit putting all those hot water scenes on your book covers! Whew! Fan me now!!

    CONGRATS TAWNY!! Love your career plan, and that your own personal Handsome Hunk told you to “go ye forthe and write the wordes” Grins. And one of these Nationals I’m going to have you do a reading for me. Bwahahahah!!

    • Tawny Weber says:

      Steamy, like a shower? *g*

      LOL I love those water-inspired covers, Jeanne! I hope they keep doing them.. sorry 😉

      And speaking of steamy, yowza!!! Nice way to heat up my rainy afternoon 😉

      LOL on the husbands words. I think his tongue would trip over that, but he’s definitely deserving of full credit for my carer.

      Now, see, if you were going to Nationals we’d be able to talk readings. I actually always bring my cards with me when I travel, alone with my lucky crystal and favorite shoes *g*

  • CrystalGB says:

  • Anna Sugden says:

    WOOOHOOO!! So excited about another Tawny release and such an awesome book too!! Love that cover!!

    A SEAL’s Kiss is something every woman should experience! 😉

  • Tracey Parker says:

    A SEALs Kiss is a book I know I am gonna love when I read it! Can’t wait!
    That is really great that you accomplished your goals. I always wanted to get a tarot reading just never went. Gotta love our husbands who are always there pushing us when we need it the most! I love it!

    • Tawny Weber says:

      Awww, thanks Tracey 😀 I appreciate that!

      I hope you do get a tarot reading at some point! I always recommend in person readings over phone or internet, at least for the first couple with a reader. After that, the connection is made and phone readings can be just as strong 😀

      Awesome husbands rock 😉

  • CateS says:

    A Seal’s Kiss …. will turn your life around…

    Glad to see another Seal book from Tawny Weber…. Cheers!!

  • Hooray!!!!! Another wonderful-hot-sexy-awesome SEAL book from Tawny !! Happy pub day, girl! And may there be many, many more. 😉

    Speaking of finding your bliss …

    A SEAL’s kiss is pure bliss. 🙂

  • Debbie says:

    A SEAL’s kiss is bone melting.
    Happy release day!

  • A SEAL’s kiss is SMOKIN’ !! And so is this book! And you KNOW I am going to love Sage! A heroine who finds homes for dogs? I am SO THERE !!

    Congrats on the release of another FABULOUS book! Can’t wait to read it !!

    And I think we should all corner Tawny at the next RWA Nationals and have her give ALL of us readings! Just saying !

    • Tawny Weber says:

      LOL big hugs and even bigger thanks, Louisa 😀 I appreciate that!!!

      LOL it sounds like it’s going to be a fun conference! I don’t mind being cornered 😉

  • Cassondra says:

    Tawny, what a great excerpt!

    And HUGE congrats on the latest SEAL book! I can’t wait to read it. It’ll be my next “reward” book.

    I love hearing about your days as a gypsy. *grin* I’ve practiced a different type of body energy therapy for 17 years now, so I could easily fall right into that category with you and your heroine.

    I enjoy tarot because I love the gorgeous art on the cards, but it’s not “my” tool, if that makes any sense. I’ve wanted a REAL crystal ball–a big one–forever, but they’re rare and expensive, so maybe that’ll be a reward to myself for meeting a long-standing goal. *grin*

    • Tawny Weber says:

      😀 Thank you so much, Cassonrdra 😀 I love the idea of being a reward *g* Or, well, my book being a reward LOL.

      I miss those days, if only because running with the healers and readers meant ready access to healings and readings LOL. I’d love to talk body energy sometime 😉

      My crystal balls are about 5 inches — not huge, but really gorgeous. I’ve never had much luck with other divination tools. Runes are beyond me, the math involved with astrology makes me dizzy and even though I love my crystal balls, scrying tends to put me to sleep *g*

      You definitely deserve that reward!!! Get it, then show me a picture 😀 I’d love to see it!

  • Laney4 says:

    A SEAL’s kiss is done on land, underwater, or in the air, all of which can be “flipping” wet.

  • bn100 says:

    Happy release!
    …finally here

  • Becke says:

    Tawny,
    Congrats on your new release and continued success.

    I went the other way with the kiss.
    A Seal’s Kiss is Forbidden

  • Lucy says:

    Congratulations on the new release Tawny!

    A Seals kiss is hot, hot, hot and then melt…

  • Susan Burgdorf says:

    A SEAL’s Kiss is never enough – leaves you wanting more, more, more!

    Congratulations on the release!!

  • Tawny, woo-hoo! Congrats on this latest release. I’m loving your SEAL series. I have my copy of A SEAL’s Kiss and am looking forward to it.

  • Marcy Shuler says:

    A SEAL’s kiss is (hopefully) wet and luscious.

    We just won’t mention this post to my hubby. 😉

  • SecretNinja says:

    A SEAL’S Kiss…..is more than this girl can handle!! haha

    Congrats on the release, Tawny! I can’t wait to read it. Just found out I won a copy from Goodreads and I’m so excited 🙂
