You will read about me saying that a lot in the future, as my new series, HEROES RISING, hits both the print and virtual stands. Book One, DESPERATE DECEPTION, is already out and has received an incredible reception. Here are just a few of the quotes from reviews:

“Desperate Deception is a fantastic romantic suspense by Desiree Holt. Ms. Holt has once more delivered a well-written book populated with outstanding characters that readers won’t be able to put down.”

“Great chemistry with some steam and plenty of action. This was a wonderful story! Loved it!!”

“So intriguing, I had to keep reading until the last page. Sex scenes were excellent and more than inspiring. Would definitely recommend!”

“My heart is still racing from the ending!”

“As always, Desiree keeps the actions slamming at you hard and fast ride along with the Romance. Could not put it down! Do not miss this one!!!”

But this is only the beginning. In addition to my Defenders series there will be several more books in the Heroes Rising series?

Why do I chose to write abut SEALs? I don’t mean to disrespect any other branch of the service, especially in Special Forces, but to me SEALs sit at the top of the ladder. Those I have had the privilege of meeting and in some cases becoming friends with epitomize the mean of true heroism as well as being incredible people. In these times of uncertainty, the one thing you can be sure of is that SEALs will also protect and defend,d will serve their country with honor, and will dedicate themselves to the saving and protecting of live. I wanted to do something to honor, even in some small way, their contribution to the safety of this country and the sacrifices they make.

The United States Navy Sea, Air, and Land (SEAL) Teams, commonly known as Navy SEALs, are the U.S. Navy’s primary special operations force and a component of the Naval Special Warfare Command. The Navy SEALs were created by John F. Kennedy on 1 January 1962. Among the SEALs main functions are conducting small-unit unconventional special operation missions in maritime, jungle, urban, arctic, mountainous, and desert environments. SEALs are primarily tasked with capturing or if necessary, eliminating high level targets, or gathering intelligence behind enemy lines for future military actions. They are often referred to as “The cream of the crop”.

Any place where there are currently U.S. troops, you’ll find that SEALs are either there now or were there first. The role that Navy SEAL teams play rev­olves around getting in and out quickly and without being seen, gathering intelligence, destroying targets, and performing rescues, among other things.

What does it take to become a Navy SEAL? Even SEAL instructors can’t predict who will make it all the way. The common trait instructors see in future SEALs can’t really be defined, they just call it “fire in the gut.” You either have it or you don’t.
