As I drove onto Fort Meade yesterday, I spotted a handmade sign by the gate:
Fear the Goat!

I wonder who Laura Kaye will root for ... she taught at the Naval Academy but writes about Army heroes in her new series, Hard Ink. She is celebrating the release of Book 1, HARD AS IT GETS:
Tall, dark, and lethal...
Trouble just walked into Nicholas Rixey's tattoo parlor. Becca Merritt is warm, sexy, wholesome--pure temptation to a very jaded Nick. He's left his military life behind to become co-owner of Hard Ink Tattoo, but Becca is his ex-commander's daughter. Loyalty won't let him turn her away. Lust has plenty to do with it too.
With her brother presumed kidnapped, Becca needs Nick. She just wasn't expecting to want him so much. As their investigation turns into all-out war with an organized crime ring, only Nick can protect her. And only Becca can heal the scars no one else sees.
Desire is the easy part. Love is as hard as it gets. Good thing Nick is always up for a challenge...

I am giving away a print copy of HARD AS IT GETS to one randomly selected commenter. To enter the giveaway,
1. Leave a comment about football - love it or loathe it?
I'm not a big fan, but I caught the shocking end of the Alabama-Auburn game. As Alabama attempted to kick a field goal for the win, Auburn caught the no-good-kick in the end zone and ran it back for a touchdown. That is football!
2. This giveaway is open to all readers.
3. Comments are open through Saturday, December 14, 10 pm in Baltimore. I'll post the winner on Sunday, December 15.
