Shirtless SEALs Cavort in New Romance Novel

Military spouses already know servicemembers in general are super sexy – we all love a man in uniform! But ever since the exciting takedown of Osama Bin Laden the Navy SEALs, in particular, have found themselves under the adoring gaze of drooling women everywhere.

It’s been more than half a year, and the craze lives on. The romance novel industry continues to step-up in fine form. After a push that started just weeks after the SEALs landed in the spotlight, a new book by 18 romance novelists has recently been released.

The title? “SEAL of my Dreams.”

Oh, yes they did.

Pardon me while I take a short break to control my laughter.

This from Stars and Stripes:

With budget cuts on the way, does that mean that Navy SEALs will no longer be issued shirts?

Maybe not, but a girl can dream. Or more accurately, 18 romance novelists can dream—and they did. Then they got together and published a collection of short, sultry stories in which the female protagonists take aim in their own special way at the heroic SEALs, whose chiseled faces and brawny physiques cannot obscure their poet souls. Or something like that.

It’s hard to say it any better than that.

But wait! There’s more! The marketing folks for this particular publication have produced a rather steamy video to demonstrate how awesome the subject of their, um, lust is. It’s so steamy, in fact, that I’m not going to post it here. You’re going to have to hit this link to check it out.

“They fight for us. They protect us. We fall in love with them …” says the video.

Of course, as Andi pointed out back in May, there’s more to be said for these guys and all servicemembers than just their physical allure (although, frankly, we don’t mind that one little bit). These guys put their lives on the line in ways most of us will never even know about.

For so  many reasons — God bless the Navy SEALs.
