Known for her distinctive ability to blend emotion, humor and suspense in tight gripping stories featuring irresistible alpha SEAL heroes, New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Tawny Weber returns with her brand-new novel, CALL TO HONOR, the first book of three in her SEAL Brotherhood series.
Release Date: January 31, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
The Poseidon team are hard-bodied, fiercely competitive navy SEALs. But when a sensitive mission goes disastrously wrong, three of the team’s finest will have to trust their hearts and instincts to uncover the truth…
“No man left behind” is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing—Diego's honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers…and only one woman has them.
Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger’s path.

“You’re the best, mister.” The kid had to get his smile from his mother, Diego decided. Because not once could Diego remember Ramsey’s smile making him want to offer one in return.
“Diego,” he said after a second, figuring talking was better than standing here on the sidewalk, grinning like an idiot. “You can call me Diego.”
“Cool. I’m Nathan. I’m seven. I’m gonna be a stuntman when I grow up. Or a veterinarian. I’d rather be a Jedi warrior, but Mom says we’ll see about that one. She says that about a lot of stuff. We’ll see. What are you?”
Huh? Was that a question? The kid’s expression said it was, so Diego did a mental replay.
“I’m in security,” he said, using the cover Savino had decided on.
“Bet you’re good at it.” Grabbing the bike by the handles, the kid gave it a good shake, then grinned when the chain stayed in place. “You’re good at fixing things, too. Maybe you could teach me to fix some things?”
Diego didn’t have much experience with kids—hell, he didn’t have any experience. Despite that, he had to figure this one was something special.
Before he could answer him, a delivery truck rumbled its way to a stop in front of the kid’s house. Something he’d noticed was a regular occurrence. At least once, sometimes twice a day.
“You sure get a lot of deliveries,” he observed, watching a guy in shorts carry a stack of boxes toward the door.
“Yeah. Mom gets tons of stuff. She decorates for people’s houses. She orders pillows and bowls and things like that. Sometimes she gets material and things to help her decide colors.”
Convenient. Or it would be if Ramsey were running drugs or stolen goods—that’d be a solid cover. But unless he’d shipped himself home in an ash can, it probably wasn’t pertinent. Lansky would claim otherwise, though, so Diego made a note to mention it in his next report.
He caught a flash of something out of the corner of his eye. All it took was a casual glance toward the house to send him rocking back on his heels.
Not even signing for a slew of packages and fending off the flirtations of the delivery guy were enough to keep Harper Maclean from sending her son a protective frown.
So far his glimpses of her had been at a longer distance than the twenty feet currently separating them. Her photos didn’t do her justice. He’d known she was a looker, but no way he’d have thought fully dressed in person could trump that bikini shot, even if that bikini shot had been kind of blurry.
He’d have been wrong.

1. What inspired you to become a writer?
I was at a turning point in my life and my husband asked me a simple question – if I could have my dream career, what would it be? The only dream that came to mind was to be a romance author. As a lifelong romance addict, I was in awe of the gift authors shared in telling their stories. And even though I had a million excuses why I couldn’t follow that dream, my husband told me to get over it and get to work. So... I did.
2. Can you tell us a little bit about your writing process and how you find inspiration for you stories?
My process almost always starts with a What If question, usually something like- What if after a SEAL Mission went wrong, killing one of the team members, they found out someone within the team was a traitor. Then characters come to mind, who they are, how they’d be impacted by that What If situation, what it’d do to their lives. And it all sort of spirals from there. I tend to find inspiration everywhere. The oddest things spark story ideas – anything from dessert to a movie to a random comment overheard while standing in line at the grocery store.
3. Do you have a favorite place to write?
I have a super cozy, very comfy chair in the family room that I write in. It’s near the fireplace and close enough to the kitchen for easy iced-tea refilling purposes. I do the bulk of my writing on my iPad Pro with the Apple keyboard, synching my manuscript to my computer. I do the bulk of my edits on the computer, since I have a 27” screen and can have multiple documents open at once for comparison and reference.
4. What kind of book will you be working on next now that this book has been released?
I’m currently working on the third book in my SEAL Brotherhood series, CALL to REDEMPTION. This is the team leader’s story and I’m so excited about being able to share his journey. CALL to REDEMPTION will be out in November, and I’m honestly not sure what I’ll be writing next.
5. What are your 5 greats? 5 things that you are grateful for in your life.
I’m grateful for (in no particular order):
1. My amazing husband
2. My awesome kids
3. The great readers out there who love my stories
4. My writing friends
5. The authors whose stories have inspired me in so many ways
6. When you have time to read, who are your go to authors?
Nora Roberts is my absolute favorite author. I love everything she’s written. I’m a huge Wayne Dyer fan as well, and reread his books quite often.
7. Will you be attending any book signings in the near future?
I don’t actually have any signings planned at the moment, but will quite likely end up adding a few as we get closer to February. If I do, they’d be noted on my website at: http://tawnyweber.com/appearances
8. Do you have any guilty pleasures that you'd like to share?
I can’t think of any pleasures I feel guilty about. That’s probably bad, isn’t it?
9. What kind of music or media do you play or use for inspiration for your books?
I create a playlist for every book I write – it is a great way to click into the story again even after a few days away from writing. For the SEAL Brotherhood series, I am listening to the same playlist for each story since they are all so tightly intertwined. You can check out my playlist if you’d like: http://tawnyweber.com/books/team-poseidon/
10. Where is the best place for fans to find you on social media?
My website is easiest, but I’m on Facebook and Pinterest quite a bit, too and am just learning my way around Instagram.
