Men, Men, Men
The Justiss Alliance, my series with Random House, was the first time I’d ever written a series about a group of men who share a common bond. In this case, it’s five Navy SEALs who are doubly bonded because they undertook a covert mission that went terribly wrong. Right after the mock hearing that ended their SEAL careers, they’re approached by the mysterious owner of a private agency that seeks justice outside the boundaries of the law. Most of them sign on right away, eager to have a purpose in life—and to kick butt, something that’s in their blood.
Series are popular now. What is it about a series that features groups or teams of men that snags our attention? For me, as both reader and writer, I love the anticipation of meeting the characters and knowing I’m going to read that person’s story eventually. In my Jaime Rush Offspring series, one of those characters surprised me by becoming a hero. I’d had no intention of writing Eric Aruda’s story. He was brusque, reckless, and, at first, not very likable. To be honest, I figured he was going to blow himself up somewhere along the way! But as he grew throughout the first three books, I, along with my readers, became fascinated with what would happen to this angry bad boy.
I asked some of my fans what they like about a series featuring groups of men. Sara Grenier loves that she gets to keep up with the characters. “You don’t just read a book and never hear from them again. You still get to see how their life is playing out.” Nicole Smith expanded on that. “The thing I love most is you get to see how the relationships from the previous books in the series are doing through out the rest of the series.”
Carrie Marie loves the sense of the group being family, whether they’re blood related or not. And I think she really hits the nail on the head. We all love feeling a connection to others, and if we don’t have strong real-life connections, we look for them in our fiction. Who has fantasized about marrying into a big, loving family if we don’t have that ourselves? Or become part of a cultural group, church, or sport. We all want to be loved and accepted, even if that comes with a good amount of ribbing and rivalry.
And with former military men, there’s plenty of that! Nothing bonds people like being in life and death situations, both the men and the women who end up in danger with them. Give me more!
The courageous men of USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott’s Justiss Alliance series never give up and never make a promise they can’t live up to—especially when love is on the line.
The only commitment Saxby Cole has ever made is to the SEALs. He follows a long line of Southern charmers who swear monogamy isn’t in their blood. He’s never met a woman who made him want to swear his allegiance—until, while undercover for a Justiss Alliance assignment, he finds a woman who makes him think twice.
When Jennessy Shaw’s boyfriend dumps her right before their vacation to a hedonistic Caribbean resort, she goes without him to explore her wild side. Throwing caution to the wind, she propositions Saxby—only to suffer his gentle rejection.
When she wakes in Saxby’s room with no memory of the night before, Jennessy discovers his real purpose: to sniff out an operation where women like her are drugged and prostituted to resort guests. She goes from victim to his investigative partner . . . but getting too close to the sexier-than-sin Saxby may be her wildest move yet.
