If you’re anything like us, you know we love Navy Seals. So we were thrilled when we were invited to participate in the Blog Tour for the third book in romance author Anne Elizabeth’s West Coast Navy SEALs series, A SEAL Forever. We got to sit down and chat with Anne about her latest title and more, and we’ve got a fabulous giveaway to share with you. First, let’s get right to the interview with Anne Elizabeth:
You must love you…before you love someone else.
The scene with Declan and the children at the gym was my favorite part. There’s something beautiful and renewing about being around kids and their enthusiasm is joyful and contagious.
I did a lot of research from personal interviews to secondary research in terms of history books and biographies. It also helped a lot having my own sexy SEAL to turn to and to ask questions when I was in a pinch.
Good question! I use the MOM EXPLANATION. If I’m too embarrassed to describe it to her (she’s a nurse), I know I’ve gone too far.
I spoke with disabled veterans and active duty soldiers and sailors who had been wounded in combat. Their experiences were heartbreaking! I wanted to honor them with this book.
Maura is the girl next door with several additional points. She’s physically and mentally strong and a very capable individual. Being all of those things doesn’t deter her, especially when the man next door is a sexy Navy SEAL who makes her pulse race. But, falling for a man and standing by his side when times get tough are two different things. She doesn’t give her love easily, and she’s the kind of soul who stands firm and faces the challenge.
I do. I think most romance writers fall in love with their hero. For me, I always write about my husband. He’s my hero and my love.
I think Declan would enjoy meeting any of the alpha males from Suzanne Brockmann’s books. They’d all sit around sharing stories and drinking beer.
Persistent. Dedicated. Loving.
I adore comedy. I often watch stand-up comedians—they crack me up!
All of my SEAL men make me swoon. Of course, there’s a little bit of my husband in all of them.
I have another West Coast Navy SEAL book releasing next year. It’s a blast! And, it will have fans on the edge their chairs.
I wish fans would ask whatever genres interested me. FYI, I adore science fiction and horror.

Special Operator Declan Smith was a dedicated U.S. Navy SEAL, a known player, and daredevil who loved pushing the limits. But on his last mission, an IED leaves him injured and angry as hell—and it changes everything.
When a loud crash disturbs his neighbor, Maura Maxwell, she assumes the sailor next door is up to his usual bad behavior. But the man she finds covered in glass is far from the cocky ladies' man she'd grown to tolerate. Lying before her is a man fighting to rediscover his place in the world—and he can't do it alone.
What do you think, Pretties? Do you love Navy Seals as much as we do? Are you excited to check out A SEAL forever?
