While You're Waiting.....

Libraries are great except for one thing.  You can't always get what you want when you want it.  We know it is frustrating to wait for a long time for Fifty Shades or anything by James Patterson.  However, there is no need to go bookless!  Here are some new titles that you may enjoy while you are waiting.

Real American Heroes

The male lead in a romance novel is traditionally called a "hero," whether he's done anything to deserve the title or not.  Granted, publicly 'fessing up to love is a pretty heroic act for any guy, but let's face it, some so-called romance "heroes" have never risked anything scarier than a well-waxed dance floor.  Sure, they look good on the cover, but... heroes?  Really?

There's no question about the guys I'm showcasing this month!  These men are more than good manners or a nice set of abs; they're heroes in every sense of the word.  In honor of the upcoming holiday, I've chosen men (and women!) who make a career of putting their lives on the line in the defense of our country. 

They serve in the armed forces, or as federal agents at home or abroad.  They're marshals, or rangers.  They're cops or sheriffs.  They're firefighters.  They protect, serve, and defend, placing the welfare of others before their own.  They're warriors, and they're darn good at what they do... especially when the battle is for the heart of the one they love.
