Sunday, October 13th, 2013, is the 238th birthday of the American Navy and we proudly salute those who serve our country and the romance writers of America love what you do. Especially, because it makes for amazing tales, great good vs. evil, and over-coming adversity stories.
For years, the classic alpha hero in romance novels has often been a man who's served his country and is dealing with the physical or emotional wounds in battle. The heroine helps him heal and they live happily ever after.
Now with the wide variety of romance novels these days, a reader can get a heroine who's been in battle and needs the healing help of a lover, a hero who's returning to his own hero, and a married military person returning home to try and get back to "normal."
Here are some of the best writers of Naval Themed Military Romance out there today:
The Santinis--Melissa Schroeder, USA Today's best selling author brings the Santini Brothers (Leonardo, Marco, Gianni, and Vicente) to life in this Naval military romance series. The box set, now available through Kindle for 0.99 cents, contains interracial and multicultural romance. The first of the series, Leonardo's story, is set right here in San Antonio.
Tease Me--Semper Fi Marines, her most recent and a spin-off of the Santini Brothers, is now available for 0.99 cents on Amazon.
Headed for Trouble--Suzanne Brockman--This best-selling author's newest romantic suspense is not only a scortcher, but it'll pull at your heartstrings and have you routing for the hero and heroine to find their Happily Ever After.
A Marine Affair--Heather Long--This male/male follows the life of two men, who's years long relationship must stay a secret, until the appeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. One wants to come forward with their affair, the other isn't so sure. Long also pens several Marine themed books that include Always a Marine Series, One Night Stand Series, and A Challenge Series.

Now, don't get romance readers or writers wrong, a man or woman in uniform isn't always ripped or built like a Mac Truck, but there's nothing wrong with showing great appreciation for what they do everyday.
Happy Birthday Navy!
