Quickie Guest Post with Jessica Scott!

You know we are a HUGE fan of Jessica Scott's books here on the blog -- really, look back at all the reviews, discussions, cover reveals and fun posts! 


Jessica Scott is a career army officer, mother of two daughters, three cats and three dogs, wife to a career NCO and wrangler of all things stuffed and fluffy. She is a terrible cook and even worse housekeeper, but she's a pretty good shot with her assigned weapon and someone liked some of the stuff she wrote. Somehow, her children are pretty well adjusted and her husband still loves her, despite burned water and a messy house.

She's written for the New York Times At War Blog, PBS Point of View Regarding War, and IAVA. She deployed to Iraq in 2009 as part of OIF/New Dawn and is currently a company commander stationed at Fort Hood.

Most recently, she's been featured as one of Esquire Magazine's Americans of the Year for 2012.

All For You by Jessica Scott
Publisher: Forever (February 4, 2014) 
Series: Coming Home, 4
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Can a battle-scarred warrior . . .

Stay sober. Get deployed. Lead his platoon. Those are the only things that matter to Sergeant First Class Reza Iaconelli. What he wants is for everyone to stay out of his way; what he gets is Captain Emily Lindberg telling him how to deal with his men. Fort Hood's newest shrink is smart as a whip and sexy as hell. She's also full of questions—about the army, its soldiers, and the agony etched on Reza's body and soul.

. . . open his heart to love?

Emily has devoted her life to giving soldiers the care they need—and deserve. Little does she know that means facing down the fierce wall of muscle that is Sergeant Iaconelli like it's just another day at the office. When Reza agrees to help her understand what makes a soldier tick, she's thrilled. Too bad it doesn't help her unravel the sexy warrior in front of her who stokes her desire and touches a part of her she thought long dead. He's the man who thinks combat is the only escape from the demons that haunt him. The man who needs her most of all . . .

Thank you so much for stopping by today, Jessica! :) I always snicker when reading military romances, because I know that much of what the author writes is fake. But not so when I pick up one of your books! 

Remember, we had a great group discussion about ALL FOR YOU on Tuesday, as well as posting our reviews. Be sure to check out both posts -- there's also an excerpt and giveaway from the publisher!

When I'm reading other military romances, I always roll my eyes at a few things -- mainly because I have read your books. :) I think it's like the BDSM trend; finally authors who actually know BDSM are writing it. Now I think it's time for more romance authors who understand the military to start writing it.
Although if you remain the only "real" military romance writer out there, that would be fine by me!
