Who's Your Hero?


~ THE WINNER IS ~
DIANA TIDLUND

This month we're celebrating the men and women (and animals too!) that rock a uniform--whichever uniform that may be. Military, Police, Firefighter and all others who serve and protect. So...Who's Your Hero? Stop by each blog for a giveaway and to find out who OUR favorite fictional and real life heroes are...

There are tons of heroes who never receive acknowledgement for their heroic acts. I am fortunate to live in a part of the country where I am reminded of these heroes on a daily basis ~ Our Military. These brave men and women put their lives on the line each and every day to keep every one of us safe. I'm proud to be a military oriented family:

Husband ~ Retired Naval Officer
Daughter ~ Reserve Coast Guard Officer
Son ~ Navy Veteran
Brother-In-Law ~ Retired Naval Officer
Father ~ Army Veteran
Father-In-Law ~ Retired Navy 

And of course our 4-legged heroes, of which I've always been a strong supporter and promoter of: Our military dogs, service dogs, search and rescue dogs, and police dogs.

Share your hero with me and be entered to win a signed copy of 
Corralling Kenzie.


Will Kenzie ever find peace and security inside the corrals of her ranch again?

Kenzie Vaughn is lucky to have a big-city, big-paycheck position.  But her great job serves as nothing more than the path to her dream: a horse boarding and training ranch outside the big city. Kenzie is a horsewoman who loves Dobermans and peaceful country living. Now she’s found the perfect ranch, right next door to a lovely campus that houses the Winters Corporation.  Her luck is holding, for the Corporation is run by the Winters’ sisters, wonderful women who could easily grow to become great friends.

One night her peace was shattered by a gunshot that wounded her horse, Boone. Good thing for Kenzie, Victory Winters is a veterinarian. Still the gunshot was no accident, and Kenzie’s past and the Winters’ present are dangerously intertwined. Kenzie is sucked into a vortex of rogue scientists who only want her for her DNA. Fortunately, the Winters Corporation can help. Even better, a Special Ops team member, Logan Mendoza, is assigned to watch her ranch. He isn’t interested in Kenzie’s DNA; he wants her for much more. Logan takes Kenzie’s personal security personally.

Will corralling Kenzie become Logan’s full-time mission?

  1. My husband is my hero. He served in the Air Force for 24 years and looked great in a flight suit as well as his Blues. He now looks great in his Air Force tartan kilt.
    I am an American Red Cross Service To The Armed Forces Volunteer and it is my honor to work with the veterans of past wars as well as those who have served more recently.

  9. My favorite fictional hero in uniform is Denis Leary's Tommy Gavin from Rescue Me.

    "Yeah. That's the thing about the spotlight, you know. Walk out into it and at first everybody thinks they see a good-lookin' all-American hero. But then you stay out there long enough and you know, they start to notice certain things. Maybe your nose is a little crooked, you know, maybe your teeth are too crooked. Maybe you got a little scar on your upper lip. Your hair's not right. One eye's bigger than the other. Next thing 'ya know they think they're lookin' at some kinda of [] monster. Like they're lookin' at King Kong. Then they start throwin' [] at 'ya."
