Meet the Author

Suzanne Brockmann
Suzanne Brockmann is the award-winning, bestselling author of more than 20 category romances. Her first book was released in 1993, and since then, she's received 17 different awards, including Best Series Romance of 1996, a 1997 Career Achievement Award and 11 different W.I.S.H. Awards for creating completely irresistible romantic heroes, all from Romantic Times Magazine. Her books have appeared on the USA Today Bestseller List, the Waldenbooks Romance List and on the keeper shelves of romance readers everywhere.

Suzanne lives near Boston with her husband, a lawyer, and two children, both professional actors. When Suzanne isn't writing, she's busy making music. Formerly the lead singer and songwriter for an original Boston rock band, she is now vocal arranger, director, and lead alto of the eight-voice a cappella group Serious Fun.

Suzanne is also one of the founders and volunteer organizers of Natick's Appalachian Benefit Coffeehouse, raising money for the Cabell/Lincoln Country Workcamp, which rebuilds housing for the poor, elderly and disabled in West Virginia.

Biography

Although Suzanne Brockmann can't remember a time when she wasn't scribbling something (one of her earliest masterpieces was an action-packed radio play called "Mice on Mars"), she didn't begin to write seriously until she was married with young children. She spent several years trying to break into the super-competitive field of screenwriting before deciding to try her hand at genre fiction; and, it was only after months of intensive research that she finally homed in on Romance. In June of 1992, she sat down to write her first book. By year's end, she had completed ten manuscripts, and in August of 1993, she sold her first book, the contemporary romance Future Perfect.

Brockmann's first novels were stand-alones. But as her career progressed, she noticed that romance mini-series, with their opportunities for character development and intersecting story lines, had become extremely popular. Seeking to increase her readership, she decided to write a mini-series of her own. She found her "hook" in a magazine article on Navy SEALs and, in 1996, she released Prince Joe, the first novel in her Tall, Dark and Dangerous series. The alpha males of Brockmann's fictional SEAL Team 10 proved to be the perfect romantic heroes, and the series was an immediate hit with readers. Four years later, she launched a second series of military/romantic thrillers centered on the friendships, romances, and working relationships among a team of Navy SEALS and members of an elite security agency called Troubleshooters, Inc. Starting with The Unsung Hero in 2000, the Troubleshooters books have catapulted the author to the top of the charts.

Brockmann is known in the industry as a risk-taker, having written stories around such sensitive topics as interracial romance and homosexuality, In 2004, she garnered attention for her eighth Troubleshooters novel, Hot Target, which involved one of her most popular recurring characters, openly gay FBI agent Jules Cassidy, in a romantic subplot. Brockman, who dedicated the book to her gay son Jason, was not sure how readers would respond. To her surprise, the reaction from gay and straight alike proved positive. She stated on her website: "I love the fact that the world I've created in my books -- a diverse American world filled with the same variety of people who live in my urban American neighborhood -- has been so enthusiastically embraced by readers."

Brockmann's distinctive literary blend has come in for its fair share of praise. Writing in the Chicago Tribune, veteran Booklist reviewer John Charles stated: "Brockmann strikes the perfect balance between white-knuckle suspense and richly emotional romance." And USA Today has called her "[t]he reigning queen of militaray suspense." As further proof of her mainstream appeal, she remains one of a handful of Romance novelists to have made the leap from mass market paperback to hardcover.

Good To Know

In an interview with the online magazine All About Romance, Brockmann says: "I started reading when I was three (my first 'real' book was Beverly Cleary's Here Comes the Bus -- I remember this because no one believed that I was really reading it and I got really upset when my older sister took it back to the school library before I'd finished it!)."

A serious history buff from her youth, Brockmann has read widely on WWII and has been known to incorporate stories from that era into the books of her Troubleshooters series.

Brockmann loves music. She attended Boston University as a film major with a minor in creative writing but dropped out to perform with a rock and roll band. She also sang with and served as music director for a Boston-based a cappella group called "Serious Fun" and produced its first and only CD in 1998.

Brockman is married to novelist Ed Gaffney.

The mother of an openly gay son , Brockmann is a proud member of PFLAG (Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians & Gays).

In her writing, Brockmann employs a device she calls Deep Point of View. She explains it in an interview with the online writers' journal Writers Write: "In my books, I use subjective point of view, but I'm not satisfied with merely showing the reader what that camera sees from its perch atop a character's head. I bring the camera down, inside of that character's head, so we see the world through that character's eyes. We hear things through his ears. We smell what he smells, feel what he feels, think what he think. With deep POV, I write using words that that character would use. I tell the story with that character's voice."

    Bobby Taylor is a Navy SEAL who has had a crush on his best frie

    Bobby Taylor is a Navy SEAL who has had a crush on his best friend's sister for years.  The sister, Coleen, has also had a crush on Bobby for just as long.  Of course, neither knew how the other felt. Coleen tries to seduce Bobby but he rejects her because his friend has threatened to kill him if he touches his sister.  Coleen is planning on going with a group of volunteers to a small war torn country.  Her brother, Wes, has sent Bobby to talk Coleen out of this trip.  When she won't be swayed from her decision, he talks to the admiral and a team of SEALs are sent to protect the group. Bobby is one of the team.

    I liked Bobby a lot but didn't like Colleen. I thought she would be a smart woman since she was in law school but she was not smart at all. She did so many things that showed her lack of common sense that I can't figure out how she was still alive! For instance, she had to sell her vintage car because she was so broke.  It never occurred to her to stop her pro bono work so she wouldn't be so broke. Then sleeping with her windows open with easy access from the outside. She thinks she can talk herself out of dangerous situations with gangs. Oh yeah, she is insisting on being a volunteer going to a small war torn country to help remove some orphans.

    Good story

    It was nice seeing other people having issues about doing "the right thing". Bobby and Colleen make a great couple.

    Hmmm

    I like the combination of Bobby and Colleen, but the journey to get them together is a little...interesting...shall we say. There are some really great parts. There are also some pretty shaky ones, mostly when Colleen and Bobby are mentally mulling over their relationship and expectations. Overall, the story is worth reading on its own, and also provides background for the next in the series.

    Pretty good...

    ...but those Silhouette covers are atrocious--thank goodness I read the ebook!

    Taylor's story is a quick, fun read--the 'falling in love with your best friend's little sister' storyline always makes for a angst-ridden read. Just a couple of things about it bothered me. First, Colleen really should have realized and understood earlier just what made Taylor fight her for so long. Honestly, it doesn't take a rocket scientist. Secondly, the whole Colleen seductress part was a bit much, and hard to believe that someone with her level of experience (hardly any) would go so far. Overall, though, it was a good read, and it's always nice to see snatches of the other team members who are already into their own HEAs in the later books. Now we just need to take care of Wes....

    I LOVE THE CHARACTERS

    COLLEEN IS FUNNY, INDEPENDENT AND DOUBTS HER BEAUTY. I LOVE THAT SHE IS THE SEDUCTRESS. BOBBY IS A GREAT MAN, WITH LOTS OF HONOR AND YOU CAN'T HELP BUT FALL IN LOVE WITH THEM. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT THE INTIMATE SCENSE ARE GLOST OVER WITHOUT ENOUGH DETAIL AS TO HOW IT ROCKS THEIR WORLDS. THE BROTHER WES, HE IS RIGHT ON. IT IS FUNNY. I READ WES's STORY BEFORE THIS ONE, AND I AM SURE THE BROTHER ETHAN DIES ALONE IN THE CAR IN WES's BOOK, BUT IN HERE THEY HAVE HIM WITH A DRUNK FRIEND.

    AWESOME READ

    I thought this book was an awesome story that was captivating from beginning to end. I love books that make me get lost in the story and this book did exactly that. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen. I also got a little teary eyed. That is one of my measures of how good a story is and in itself shows that it was a take me away romantic adventure. I have read many brockmann books and she is one of my favorite authors. I have to say this was one of her best out of the tall dark and dangerous series.

    Very disappointing

    This book is alright, but it doesn't compare to any of her others. It is just so slow and boring, and Collen actually seems like a loser to me, despite her do-gooder attitude. Also, we don't really get to know that much about Bobby, and I feel that would have helped the story a lot

    Good job!

    Bobby Taylor is a Navy SEAL, and his best friend is his swim buddy, Wes Skelly. As Wes ships out on an assignment, he asks Bobby to go to Boston to look out for his younger sister, Colleen, who is doing stuff that has big brother in overprotective mode. Bobby goes, but is full of reservations because his feelings for Colleen Skelly are far from brotherly. As this is a serial romance novel, you can probably guess where the plot goes from there. The dialogue is snappy and characters are very well drawn. The conversations between Wes and Bobby, as well as the brief appearances of other SEALs from earlier books work very well. My only knock would be that we never learn much about Bobby's background and history. Normally I wouldn't notice this, but in all of the other Team Ten Books the heroes had a history that was explained, so its absense was noted here. There is a good segue to the next book in the series (expected to be Wes' story) at the end. All of the Suz Brockmann fans who have been waiting impatiently for the next installment of her Team Ten books will be pleased with this effort.
