Reblogging for Veteran's Day!
Let us celebrate by noting the best books featuring naval heroes and heroines of Romance. (Let's see if I can find a heroine!)
I live in a Navy town and shore side reconnections from lovers too long away from each make the heartache around here.
I will included those mighty SEALs in here as well.
As always, I would love to know your favorite heroes and heroines with this theme and if you would like to vote for the best of the best go to these Goodreads lists: I'm in the Navy!, Best Romance Featuring a Navy SEAL, and For The Love Of A Sailor-Historical Hero Who Is Sailor, Ship's Captain Or Seafarer.
