My newest novella, FREDO’S
SECRET, was a Christmas present to my readers. One comment I loved yesterday
from a reader was, “Fredo’s Secret was the book I didn’t realize I needed.”
Fredo grew up poor in a rough neighborhood near LA. He isn’t as handsome as some
of his SEAL brothers, but he wound up with Mia, the most beautiful of all the
SEAL wives. Mia is Armando’s (the sniper on SEAL Team 3) little wild child
sister, and he spent the first four books loving her from afar while she
mistreated him and wickedly turned down all his advances. They finally get
together in Book 5, Cruisin
For a SEAL.
With his unibrow, wide nose and ruddy complexion, Fredo has always been a fan
favorite. I can’t tell you how many letters I’ve received from fans asking when
he’d have his own book. There are a lot of things that a writer does to get into
a character, and after writing this novella, now I can write his full length
book. But it took me over two years to get there!
It was a pleasure to bring the novella to my readers. And I decided to have it
recorded by my world-class storyteller and best friend, J.D. Hart, so readers
could enjoy Fredo in audio
as well. Here is a SoundCloud snippet of this audio recording. Enjoy!
I’m working on Zak and Amy’s story in TRUE NAVY BLUE: ZAK, to be
Which character in my SEAL Brotherhood Series
would you like to see have his own book next? Two commenters will win a choice
of any of my books on audio!
Sharon Hamilton is a NYT and USAToday bestselling author most known
for her SEAL Brotherhood series.
Her Golden Vampires of Tuscany are not
like any vamps you've read before, since they don't have to go to ground and can
walk around in the full light of the sun.
Sharon's Guardian Angels
struggle with the human charges they are sent to save, often escaping their
vanilla world of Heaven for the brief human one. You won't find any of these
beings in any Sunday school class.
All of Sharon's books are available on
eBooks (most formats), print and Audible.
A lifelong organic gardener,
Sharon lives with her husband in the Wine Country of Northern California, where
most of her stories take place. When she's not writing, she's getting verra
verra dirty in the mud or wandering Farmer's Markets looking for new Heirloom
varieties of vegetables and flowers.
Navy SEAL Alphonso "Fredo" Manuel Esquidido Chavez learns something he does
not want to tell his wife, the beautiful Mia Guzman, Armando's sister. He
worries she will no longer love him when she finds out the news. But just as one
door closes, another opens for Fredo and Mia. And along the way he manages to
help redeem a struggling youth, who reflects some of the darkness of his own

I haven't had the pleasure of reading any of your books yet, but audio is my preferred format. I do love a good rescue. From reading this blog, I'm sure I will enjoy your characters. Are any of the Seal's doctors? If so, that would be my choice. I like stories about doctors that are suspenseful and filled with romance. I'm also a vampire girl.

Sharon I must admit I've never read any of your books but I LOVE reading about any Seal!

Any one that flows best for you. I have a tendency to hoard them for my vacation weeks so I can binge and not have to worry about putting them down and still getting up in the morning for work.
