Guest Blog: Sharon Hamilton: Warriors in Love


NOTE: Everyone who leaves a comment will be given SEAL Encounter, my short. Be sure to put your email address in the comment box!

Writing alpha males can be tricky. These big strong guys are able to handle dangerous situations, and put themselves in harm’s way, on purpose. They are hard wired to rescue, to save the day. They physically can outperform anyone else, or will gladly die trying.

In romance, they also have to fall in love.  The kernel of the romance is the effect this love has on the alpha hero, how it changes him, but in a believable way. We can’t have a big strong guy suddenly getting soft. He has to be brought to his knees in love, ruined, but not broken.

In past books, I have written about vampires and dark angels, and I could make up all the “special powers” they have. In paranormal you create the rules of engagement and have fun with the special world we build. But, with the new SEAL series I’m doing, these are not paranormal alphas. They are human males, trained physically to the peak of performance.

Writing a contemporary hero in real-life situations can be a challenge. The brotherhood in the SEAL community has very definite rules. One of the sexiest things about them is that they don’t seek attention or brag in public. If they do, it’s done within the community, for the most part. By the nature of their work, they don’t seek the spotlight. I’ve heard stories of entire teams standing when someone outside the community has asked for the name of a particular individual who has done a particular feat.

A SEAL wife once told me, “I don’t know who did that, but I do know he’ll never have to buy another beer for the rest of his life.” The community knows who the heroes are. It isn’t necessary for the public to do so as well. It’s a tight-knit group, as well portrayed in the movie Act of Valor. The families and children grow up together, band together in times of tragedy, and celebrate together as only they can.

I thought it was significant that, in making Act of Valor, the directors had to use real SEALs to do the stunts because regular actors would not be able to duplicate the actions. What had started out as a training documentary then became a full-length feature film.

What works best in writing true alphas is when love rocks their world. We take the hero from his familiar surroundings, doing impossible things, and place him in a setting where he has no training. And in writing about SEALs, we have to show how he improvises, adapts to his environment and eventually overcomes the obstacles, without killing the heroine in the process!

I’m enjoying these wonderful guys, creating fictional stories that show who they are and why they are worthy of our praise.

BLURB for Accidental SEAL:

Christy Nelson embarks on her new career in Real Estate by holding her first open house. Entering the wrong house, by accident, she finds the nude sleeping body of a young man.

Navy SEAL Kyle Lansdowne, on a mission to find his AWOL Team buddy, is staying at his buddy’s home while investigating the disappearance.  When someone breaks in, he takes protective measures. He doesn’t expect to find that a beautiful young woman is responsible for his teammate’s abduction.

What starts out as a meeting by accident becomes a hot affair neither one is ready for. Kyle is conflicted about getting Christy involved in his mission, but his hand is forced when he learns the same San Diego gang responsible for his teammate’s abduction has kidnapped her.

Battling a cadre of dirty law enforcements hell-bent on getting military equipment, especially state-of-the-art firepower, Kyle is forced to admit that he would be willing to die to protect her.

BIO:
Sharon Hamilton loves all things paranormal: Angels, Dark Angels, Watchers, Guardians, Upogenie and Vampires. She also has developed a series of hot romantic suspense Navy SEAL stories. Her characters follow a spicy road to redemption through passion and true love—not exactly what they taught you in Sunday School!  

Sharon is represented by agent Jill Marsal, and has finaled in several erotic, contemporary,  paranormal and single title contests over the past three years. She regularly participates in four RWA and California Writer chapters, and two blogs.

An avid organic vegetable and flower gardener, Sharon and her husband live in the Wine Country in Northern California, where most of her stories take place.

Life is one fool thing after another.
Love is two fool things after each other.

Sharon, this sounds like a wonderful story. Thank you for the authentic information you gave about Seals and their families.

Sharon Hamilton said...

You are very welcome. Yes, I have a close connection to the Teams, I am proud to say. I'll be sending your SEAL Encounter if you give an email address. Thanks for stopping by.

jean hart stewart said...

love the info about the Seals. I knew they were a close-knit group, but not to this extent..

Mary Corrales said...

I'm betting that this is an awesome story. I loved the movie Act of Valor. I'm always in awe of those who can realistically write about these brave men who do so much for our country.

Going to have to pick this book up.

I'd love to read your short story as well. My email is maryc(underscore)writes(at)yahoo.com

Cara Marsi said...

Sharon, loved what you said about real-life heroes. So true. Great covers on your books. I'd love to win your story.

Carolyn4books@aol.com

Sharon Hamilton said...

Jean, There are only 2000 of them, so yes, they are very close. And because it is so difficult for people outside the community to understand, and they shun the limelight, they stay close. I have to dig hard to get any details at all. LOL.

Sharon Hamilton said...

Mary, happy to be sending SEAL Encounter to you today. Act of Valor does an excellent job portraying these fine young men who are willing to sacrifice it all. Also shows the support teams (air and boat crews) that aid the SEALS, and are often in as much danger as the SEALs themselves.

I'm just a writer who is lucky enough to be close to a few of them and their families.

Sharon Hamilton said...

Cara, Nice to touch base with you again. SEAL Encounter on its way to you now. Kendra Egert does these great covers. Of course, I'm rather partial to Jimmy Thomas, too!

Cara Marsi said...

Thank you, thank you, Sharon. I just picked up my gift. I love Jimmy Thomas also.

Sandy said...

Thank you, Sharon. I picked up my gift, too.

Sharon Hamilton said...

Thanks, ladies. I had fun today. I will check back later tonight just to make sure I didn't miss anyone.

Thanks for being such a hospitable group!!
