Why Special Operators make Kickass Heroes



By
 Anna del Mar





 I’m a huge admirer of our special operation guys. I think they’re the best of the world. My years as a Navy wife taught me a lot about the professional and private sides of this breed of extraordinary warriors. In form and character, I find special operators perfectly suited to be the focal point and the primary halves of my romances. In my world, brawn + brain = sizzling sexy.
Special operators have the starring roles in my new Wounded Warrior series, a collection of hot, smart romances about strong heroines struggling to find their place in the world and the brave, kickass, military heroes who challenge their limits to protect the women they love. In The Asset, the series’ first novel, we meet Ash Hunter, a Navy SEAL wounded in Afghanistan who’s struggling to overcome his injuries when he finds himself staring down the barrel of Lia Stuart’s loaded shotgun.
Lia is a fugitive, hiding, desperately trying to escape her terrifying past. She may not be a SEAL and she’s definitively keeping secrets, but Ash recognizes her for who she really is: a fighter and a survivor, the kind, caring, passionate woman he could love, if only she wasn’t so afraid to let him. When she risks her cover to help him, Ash’s committed to a new mission. He’s got the skills to help Lia defeat her enemies. He’s got the training. And he will lay down his life to save her.
Brawn, check. Brains + skills + loyalty + resilience + determination, double-check. Lust, passion and sex, Triple check. Caring? Done deal. This is the moment when we fall in love with Ash Hunter, the reason why special operators make kickass heroes.

Wonderful article, Anna! I loved your first book, The Asset, and I'm sure your female readers all fell in love with Ash! I sure was behind him every step of the way. (I loved Lia's strength and determination, too!) Thanks for posting this on MB4 and once again, welcome to our team!
