AK Resize finalWelcome! My name is Kendall McKenna and I write M/M Erotic Romance novels and novellas featuring authentic U.S Marines and realistic action sequences, all against the backdrop of scorching hot romances. You’ve most likely found your way to my blog by way of the Wicked Warrior Halloween Hop. I’m glad you could join us. We’re celebrating all things spooky and scary with some spectacular giveaways. Best of luck!

We focus a lot of our attention, this time of year, on ghosties, ghoulies, scaries, and things that go bump in the night. But the title of this hop reminds me that in this season of costumes and playing dress up, it’s sometimes fun to be the hero.

TheStrengthoftheWolf4Okay, not all warriors are heroes. But in the stories that I write, my warriors are the heroes (usually). Since I write about active duty U.S. Marines (falling in love), my warriors are smart, loyal, honorable, and in some cases, tortured. They fight for what they believe in, and what they believe is right. They’re frequently afraid of the actions or events around them, but they battle on, in spite of it. My warriors are heroes.

When it comes to dressing up, nothing beats the Marine Corps Class “A” uniform, commonly known as ‘dress blues’. The cut of the coat, the clean and bright brimmed cover, the blood stripe on the trousers, all the way down to the shiny black shoes, the uniform is breathtaking, and sexy as hell!

TheFinalLineEventPicInstead of going to a costume party as a scary monster, maybe just once, it might be fun to dress up in a play version of Marine Corps dress blues! Be a hero, once in awhile, and look REALLY good while doing it! You don’t have to stop with Marines, either. There are some fascinating warriors through history, which make for good costumes. Roman Centurions, Knights Templar, Medieval Knights, Vikings, and Samurai all had great uniforms.

As my blog hop prize, I’m offering one e-book copy of the winner’s choice between three titles. Nights In Canaan features a vampire and the eternal warrior (Marine) who loves and battles him throughout time. The Final Line is about a Marine combat veteran who battles PTSD as he lets himself fall in love. Strength of the Wolf is the follow-up to the Bookie Award nominated title, Strength of the Pack, and is set in a universe where werewolves serve openly as U.S. Marines.

You can find out more about Nights In Canaan, The Final Line, and Strength of the Wolf, along with all my published stories (including buy links), here at my website.
