Guest Post with Author Jen McLaughlin and Giveaway

Meet Jen McLaughlin, author of Out of Mind.

Jen McLaughlin is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. She writes steamy New Adult books for the young and young at heart. Her first release, Out of Line, came out September 2013. She also writes bestselling Contemporary Romance under the pen name Diane Alberts.Since receiving her first contract offer under the pen name Diane Alberts, she has yet to stop writing. She is represented by Louise Fury at The Bent Agency.

Though she lives in the mountains, she really wishes she was surrounded by a hot, sunny beach with crystal clear water. She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her four kids, a husband, a schnauzer mutt, a cat, and a Senegal parrot. In the rare moments when she’s not writing, she can usually be found hunched over one knitting project or another. Her goal is to write so many well-crafted romance books that even a non-romance reader will know her name.

Favorite Heroes

We all have them. We all know what they are. And we all are powerless to resist them.

What are they, you might ask? Come closer. I’ll whisper it in your ear.

Ready? It’s your favorite type of…. Romance hero.

Yep. You know you have one. I do, too, and I’ll tell you all about it. Okay, I’ve gotta be honest here. I love, love, love, love, love writing about Marine heroes. Heroes just like Finn, from my OUT OF LINE series. The latest—and LAST—book in the series, OUT OF MIND, just came out, and I get to delve all into the military life with the story. The good, the bad, and the ugly. And I looooooved it.

I can’t help it. I’m addicted to Military heroes.

They’re hard, yet caring.

Loyal, yet torn.

Warriors, yet soft in the center.

I mean, really, what’s not to love about them? They’re the total package…complete with hot, tattooed arms. Or at least, Finn has tattoos. ;)

I need to know. What’s your favorite kind of hero? What’s your kryptonite, when it comes to romance books? Geeky nerd? Alpha dirty talker? Billionaire Dom?

What’s your weakness?

Reaching for sunlight...

Finn survived the ambush and came home to me, but in his head, the battle is still raging. He’s falling apart and I’m trying my best to pick up the pieces of him, to find the us we used to be. I love him as much as I ever did, but love isn’t enough to fix this. I thought telling my father about our relationship would be the hardest thing we’d ever have to face. I was wrong.

Lost in shadows...

All I wanted was to be worthy of Carrie. One mission, just one, and I’d be able to give her the future she deserved. Then everything went wrong, leaving me tainted and broken. Carrie wants me to be who I was, but all that’s left is what they made of me. I’m no good for her. No good for anyone like this. I have to figure out how to move forward. Alone.

Sometimes love isn’t enough…
