Love a man (or woman) in uniform? So do we! That’s why we’re super excited to have author Laura Kaye stopping by Novel Reflections today in celebration of her newest release of her Heroes series: ONE NIGHT WITH A HERO.

Top 5 Reasons We Love Men in Uniform
Thanks so much to Novel Reflections for hosting me here today! I’m celebrating the release of my new contemporary romance, One Night with a Hero (Hero #2). This series features military heroes returning from war and struggling to find themselves and new loves. So, today, I thought I’d share the top five reason I think we just adore men in uniform!
Courage. We love men in uniform because they stood up, they stepped forward, they raised they’re in and declared themselves all in. And that takes courage. Whether a soldier, a police officer, or a firefighter, men in uniform place their families, communities, and country before themselves, and are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. How could you not love them for that?
Honor. Men in uniform live by a code of honor because people’s lives depend on dedication to truth, duty, and integrity. They hold themselves to a higher standard and strive to achieve it. This makes them hugely admirable. Living by honor is definitely another reason we love men in uniform.
Commitment. The grueling training. The life-threatening situations. The separation from home and family. The exhausting schedules. Men who work in any of the uniformed services know how to stick through thick and thin. They sign up for the long haul and slog it out. I definitely love men in uniform for their ability to commit.
Skills. Heh. But seriously! The training entailed to qualify to serve in any of the uniformed services (not just the military, but policing, firefighting, etc.) is difficult, competitive, and separates the wanna-bes from the real thing. Men in uniform possess the knowledge and skills that can save people’s lives in a whole host of critical situations. You gotta love them for that.
Uniforms. They wear ‘em. Need I say more???
So, do you have a different reason you love men in uniforms? Comment to enter to win Laura’s giveaway of an ebook of One Night with a Hero.
Thanks for reading!

About One Night with a Hero:
He wants just one night… After growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, Army Special Forces Sgt. Brady Scott vowed never to marry or have kids. Sent stateside to get his head on straight—and his anger in check—Brady’s looking for a distraction. He finds it in his beautiful new neighbor’s one-night-only offer for hot sex, but her ability to make him forget is addictive. Suddenly, Brady’s not so sure he can stay away. …what they need is each other.
Orphaned as a child, community center director Joss Daniels swore she’d never put herself in a position to be left behind again, but she can’t deny herself one sizzling night with the sexy soldier who makes her laugh and kisses her senseless. When Joss discovers she’s pregnant, Brady’s rejection leaves her feeling abandoned. Now, they must overcome their fears before they lose the love and security they’ve found in each other, but can they let go of the past to create a future together?
