Call to Honor: A SEAL Brotherhood Novel, #1 by Tawny Weber Interview, Excerpt & Giveaway


Call to Honor: A SEAL Brotherhood Novel, #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 One:

Damn.

Not even signing for a slew of packages and fending off the flirtations of the delivery guy were enough to keep Harper Maclean from sending her son a protective frown.

So far his glimpses of her had been at a longer distance than the twenty feet currently separating them. Her photos didn’t do her justice. He’d known she was a looker, but no way he’d have thought fully dressed in person could trump that bikini shot, even if that bikini shot had been kind of blurry.

He’d have been wrong.

Even glaring at him, as if she thought he’d get greasy cooties all over her sweet little boy, she was gorgeous.

From the tip of her tousled blond hair to the toes of her strappy high-heeled sandals, she screamed California girl. She was too far away to see many details, but he knew from the file Lansky had compiled that she had strong features. A wide mouth with its generous bottom lip and dark brows that arched over big blue eyes.

Diego wasn’t sure why he felt as if he’d just taken a kick to the solar plexus. He’d never gone for the good-girl look, and there was nothing particularly sexy about what she was wearing. The turquoise pleated skirt flared in a way that made her waist look miniscule and her cream-colored top looked like a silky T-shirt, but both were a little too generous with the fabric for his tastes.

Which didn’t matter, he reminded himself as the woman walked from the front door to her courtyard’s arch. Sexy or dog ugly, she was a means to an end. And that end had nothing to do with getting her naked, mores the pity.

INTERVIEW 
What would we find under your bed?
                Let’s see.  Under my bed right now are two banjos, a mandolin and an acoustic guitar.  There’s a box of clothes that don’t fit but I can’t bring myself to give up, and a whole slew of dog toys.  I hope that’s all.  Now I’m a little afraid to look under there and see.   Btw, the banjos and mandolin are my husbands.  But the guitar is mine.                 

What was the scariest moment of your life?
                When my youngest daughter was in NICU.  She was only a week old, so tiny and helpless.    I don’t think I’ve ever been so scared, or more appreciative of the amazing nurses who kept me from totally freaking out. 

Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?
                I do!  I create a playlist for every book I write, so I can always tap back into the story even after weeks away (that’s always handy during edits).  For CALL TO HONOR, since it’s a part of a trilogy instead of creating a single book playlist, I created a series playlist.  You can check out the songs at my website, at http://tawnyweber.com/team-Poseidon

What is something you'd like to accomplish in your writing career in the next year?
                I’d love to see my Team Poseidon books have huge success and find tons of new readers.   I’d really like to dive into writing another handful of books in this series, too, since I am having such a great time with these heroes.  I really do like writing bigger series that carry though numerous books, since I love revisiting characters in book after book.  I can’t be alone in that, can I?  Readers like that too, right? 

How long did it take you to write this book?
                CALL TO HONOR took me 4 months to write, not including revisions, editorial, line edits and AA edits.   I had a pretty solid handle on the overarching trilogy plot when I started since I’d had to put together a series proposal before coming to contract.
