Men & Women Of The Military Giveaway Hop


It's time for The Jeep Diva's Men & Women of the Military Giveaway Hop! There are 121 entrants and dozens upon dozens of prizes to win. After enjoying your stop over here on Bookin' It Reviews jump over to the other participating authors and bloggers to enter their portion of this fabulous giveaway.

And while I have your attention I would love to give a huge shout out to our brave and strong U.S. Military! No matter the branch you serve I am grateful for all that you do for our country. To my wonderful husband, a former Marine Captain who served for over fifteen years, you will forever hold my heart! 

And now for the goodies!

Today I have for you some awesome military romantic suspense not to be missed. Two fabulously talented authors, J.L. Saint & Avery Flynn, have donated the below titles to this giveaway for International readers. So no matter where you are you can enter. Thank you both, ladies! :)

And to add some spice to sweet mix I have some gorgeous military hunks to share. I know I know...I spoil you, but I'm naughty like that. ;)


Either way, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Giveaway Number 1: an electronic copy of Temptation Creek, Layton Family, Book 1

Temptation Creek
Avery Flynn

Back of the Book:

Claire Layton expects the usual busy Saturday night at Harvest Bistro to be killer on her stilletto shod feet. She never imagines there’d be an actual murderer on the loose at her restaurant in rural Dry Creek, Nebraska. But when she discovers a customer dead in a dumpster, the killer demands she find the victim’s phone and flash drive or face fatal consequences.
Jake Warrick, a cocky and mind-numbingly hot private investigator, becomes Claire’s unlikely ally in the search. Jake just wants to solve the case and get out of this hick town, but the diminutive and curvaceous Claire turns his plan upside down as they uncover a more complex crime than they ever imagined. The two bicker and banter like Tracy and Hepburn caught in a whirlwind of intense sexual attraction as they try to find the killer before it’s too late.

Avery Flynn is a pseudonym for the author who, at least for now, prefers to remain behind the scenes.  She believes having Avery as her alter ego is a very good thing because, as she says, “Pen name Avery is way cooler than me. Her favorite color is hot pink. She drinks single malt scotch on the rocks. She loves the Argentinean tango and stays at Iceland’s Ice Hotel.”

Keep up with Avery...

Giveaway Number 2: an electronic copy of Collateral Damage, Silent Warrior, Book 1

Collateral Damage
J.L. Saint

Back of the Book:
One thing makes Jack Hunter invaluable to his Delta Force Team. The same trait that makes him suck at relationships. Single-minded focus on his career—and honing his ability to never miss a kill.
After a terrorist missile devastates his team and leaves him with only partial memory of a FUBARed rescue mission, he retains only one clear picture no one believes: the last face in his gunsight belonged to a prestigious American businessman. The man’s wife has to know something, but the only way to get to her is go AWOL.
After her husband trades his family to tango with double-Ds, Lauren Collins decides her dogs are better judges of character. She’s unaware how far her soon-to-be-ex’s web of deceit reaches—until the only thing between her, her sons and a killer is a wounded Delta soldier who activates her sorely neglected X-chromosome like nobody’s business.
Their instant attraction is kryptonite to Jack’s injury-dulled edge. Thrust into a world of peril, political treachery and treason, Lauren has no choice but to trust Jack with her life. Even if she and her sons survive, she’s not sure her heart will…
Warning: Contains a warrior who doesn’t hesitate to lay his body on the line, more than one emotional love story to tug at your heart, and chaos at Chuck E. Cheese.

Giveaway Number 3: an electronic copy of Tactical Deception by J.L. Saint

Tactical Deception
J.L. Saint

Back of the Book:
One tormented soldier. One woman. Eight snipers. Someone’s going down…
The fallout from the team’s failed mission to Lebanon is still tearing Lt. Col. Roger Weston apart. God help them all if the media gets wind of the real story. Worse, guilt is eating him alive over a decision that left a fallen warrior’s wife without a husband…and exposed to danger from her radical family.
No matter what, Mari Dalton’s safety and wellbeing—and that of her unborn child—come first.
Mari is certain God is punishing her. She loved the man who rescued her from a windowless cell in Afghanistan, and never betrayed their marriage. But she has never been able to forget her body’s reaction to Roger. Now she is the target of terrorists bent on destroying the heart of America. As Roger lays his life on the line to protect her, they uncover a plot already in motion to assassinate the President. As the world teeters on the edge of chaos, any hope for a future rests in Roger’s already blood-stained hands…and the quietly faithful woman who holds his heart.


USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer St. Giles also writes as J.L. Saint and Jennifer Saints. She is a nurse and mother of three. She has won a number of awards for writing excellence including, two National Reader’s Choice Awards, two time Maggie Award Winner, Daphne du Maurier Award winner, Romance Writers’ of America’s Golden Heart Award, along with RT Book Club’s Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Gothic/Mystery.
