Guest Post with Samanthe Beck and Giveaway

Please welcome back the super awesome author Samanthe Beck. Samanthe is celebrating the release of her newest book, Falling For The Marine and has stopped by to share her Top 10

Sam was transfixed from an early age with any tale featuring a handsome prince, a great dress, and, of course, the all-important kiss, and eventually aspired to write her own happily-ever-afters. Naturally, she became a lawyer. The legal world heaved a sigh of relief a few years ago when Samanthe retired from law to take the plunge as a writer.

When not living the glamorous life of a romance author (i.e., chained to her computer), Samanthe keeps busy with the care and feeding of her extremely patient prince-charming of a husband, a not-so-patient ball of energy known as their son, a furry ninja named Kitty, and Bebe, the trash talkin’ Chihuahua. Their love, support, and willingness to eat Pizza Hut three or more times a week enables Samanthe to pursue her literary dreams.

Places to find Samanthe: 

Hi Dani & thanks for having me back at Ramblings from this Chick! In honor of the release of my latest Brazen, FALLING FOR THE MARINE, I thought I’d offer up a scientifically assembled list of the Top Ten Men in Uniform. My scientific method involved polling my friend and fellow Entangled author Robin Bielman, as she is my source for all information. Here is what I learned:

10. Jake Gyllenhaal in “Jarhead.” I’ll admit, I’ve never seen the movie, but apparently all I really need to know is this:

9. Karl Urban in “Almost Human,” a new TV series coming from Fox. He plays Detective John Kennex. I hope he frisks me.

8. Josh Hartnett in “Black Hawk Down.” Admit it, I had you at Josh Hartnett. You didn’t care if I chose “Black Hawk Down” or “Pearl Harbor,” did you?

7. Channing Tatum in “Magic Mike.” Just kidding. I meant “G.I. Joe,” cuz that’s where he wears a uniform, but gosh darn it, I couldn’t find a picture of him in the uniform. Shame.

6. Richard Gere in “An Officer and A Gentleman.” Sigh.

5. Shemar Moore as Derek Morgan in “Criminal Minds.” What’s going on in my mind when I look at this picture is, indeed, criminal.

4. Jeremy Renner in “The Hurt Locker.” I have to confess I never saw this movie either, but I would nominate it for “Best Picture” based solely on this…

3. Rick Rossovich as Slider in “Top Gun.” You knew we’d end up here, didn’t you? This screen moment made my under-aged heart go pitter-patter.

2. Josh Duhamel as Army Ranger William Lennox in the “Transformer” series. I find him transforming. And transfixing.

1. Tom Cruise in “Top Gun.” Let’s face it, we’re never going to lose that lovin’ feeling for Maverick.

Did Robin and I get it right? Let me know!

Pretending to be in love has never felt so sexy.

USMC helicopter pilot Michael McCade has two goals: Get his damn back into alignment and keep his nose clean until his commanding officer clears him to fly again. The doctor-recommended massage therapy seems like a necessary step toward returning to the cockpit, but when his too-hot-to-handle neighbor, Chloe Kincaid, turns out to be his masseuse, he strays from the straight and narrow in a major way.

Chloe Kincaid is looking for a simple, no strings attached, ego-boosting hook up. But when her positively panty-melting neighbor, USMC Major Michael McCade, (aka “Major Hottie”), shows up on her massage table, she lets desire get the better of professionalism. Now they’re pretending to be engaged to avoid a whole lot of unanticipated consequences of a momentary lapse in judgment. But can a girl who avoids attachments at all costs fake an engagement to a straight-arrow soldier without falling hard?

  1. You did pretty good but personally I wouldn't have Tom Cruise in there, that is just my opinion, so then I would just move everyone up a Thanks for the great giveaway! :)

    1. Aww love for the Cruister? Okay, I'll move everyone up a notch! ;)

  2. I agree with about half. I'd ad Jason Statham and Dwayne The Rock Johnson to the list.

    1. Jason Statham...yes. He could transport me anywhere. LOTS of votes for Dwayne Johnson are coming in. Gosh, I guess I'd better keep working on this list!

  3. I think you got it right! Maybe we could add Dwayne Johnson also?

  4. Yup... What a great list! :) Love channing tatum...

  5. I agree totally with that list! Congrats on the newest release and thanks for the fun post and giveaway!

  6. Hi Dani! Hi Sam! I loved drooling over - I mean discussing - hot men in uniform with you, Sam! And your Michael from FALLING FOR THE MARINE is smoking! And mine. In case anyone asks. ;) I'd like for a few of these guys on your list to frisk me too. (LOL you always crack me up!) Oh, and how could we forget Jason Statham and The Rock? Yum! But as with all your posts, I LOVED this! Congrats again on your release! I'm so thrilled for you!

  7. Love your list! Tom Cruise in Top Gun is one of the best, I think! Good choices.

  8. Sam and Robin, you are bad influence. I saw the top ten and now searching all men in uniforms that are sexy. great list by the way.That I've seen all the movies except one says something about me I think. ;-) what about tyrese gibson? this man is hot like chocolate. or james franco? thanks for the eye candy and good luck with your book though you don't need it because it's fantastic.

  9. You did well but I'd like to see Chris Hemsworth in there somewhere :)

  10. Channing tatum is in there so I'm happy. lol

  11. I LOVE Samantha's books and this one loooks great too! Thank you for the afternoon drool :)


  12. Awesome, awesome man candy. Nice. I must confess to loving Ms. Beck's books. I can't wait to read Falling for the Marine!

  13. Instead of just Tom "Maverick" and Rick "Slider" (who had the BEST bod in "Top Gun," bar none, IMO), just add the volleyball scene. Yowza!!

    Y'all may be too young to remember, but what about Michael Biehn, who played Sgt. Kyle Reese in "Terminator?" OMG. My high school self fell in love/lust with that tortured alpha man who had one of the most memorable lines in film "John Connor gave me a picture of you once. I didn't know why at the time. It was very old - torn, faded. You were young like you are now. You seemed just a little sad. I used to always wonder what you were thinking at that moment. I memorized every line, every curve. I came across time for you Sarah. I love you; I always have." I die each time I hear that man utter those words. Swoon city!

  14. I'd take out Cruise and add in Joe Manganiello and Chris Heimsworth.... Not sure who else I'd take out tho.... Maybe make it a top 20 list?? I'm sure it would be easy to fill. :-)

  15. I'm not positive about the order (I'd move Richard Gere and Karl Urban a little closer to the top), but I think it's a good list.

  16. I love stories with strong, sexy, heart melting, sensitive alpha men from the military.

  17. I'd move Tom down the list a bit, Channing up to the top... Thanks for the post. lisagk(at)yahoo

  18. Love the list very nice to look at ;) ty for the giveaway :)

  19. It took me a while to get to the bottom of the page.

  20. Love this list! You made my day a happy one by giving me a chance to see all these hotties!! If I could add anyone onto this list it would be Chris Hemsworth and Stephen Amell (from the tv show Arrow), although I don't think either have been in anything that involves a uniform...both are super hot!!

  21. Thanks for the chance to win!
    Great list!!

  22. I agreed! Although I do kinda hope Dwayne Johnson was on the list.

  23. Great list :) Thanks for the amazing giveaway and chance to win!!
