Despite a no-nonsense background as a West Point graduate and U.S. Army officer, Caro Carson has always treasured the happily-ever-after of a good romance novel. After her military service, she worked in the healthcare industry with a Fortune 100 company, talking science with doctors who were rarely handsome bachelor Texans like the doctors in her books. Now a RITA™-award-winning and USA Today bestselling author, Caro is delighted to be living her own happily-ever-after with her husband (who is a handsome Texan) and their two children. They live in Florida, a location which has saved the coaster-loving theme park fanatics a fortune on plane tickets.

I'm so glad The Lieutenants is a favorite. The next book is the next rank higher: The Captains' Vegas Vows. It opens with the heroine waking up married in Vegas. She remembers nothing; the hero remembers everything. (How alarming would it be to have a total stranger madly in love with you and wearing a wedding ring!) It takes place at the same time as The Lieutenants. The hero is the company commander of the LTs' company, so you'll get to see the LTs again. The paperback will be in stores and online around September 15th. The ebook will be on sale October 1st.

And then....The Majors' Holiday Hideaway will be on sale in paperback October 15, ebook on November 1st.

And then....The Colonels' Texas Promise will be in stores January 15, 2019, with the ebook available February 1st.

Whew! That's it so far for military romances with the heroines as well as the heroes on active duty. Thank you so much for asking, and again, thank you for telling me The Lieutenants' Online Love is a favorite! (less)

Answer: The plot twists are not realistic.

I mean, this book is about this girl who wants to be a ballerina, so she goes to West Point and becomes a US Army Military Police officer. Makes no sense, right? Then she gets out of the army and starts selling drugs! (Okay, legally, for Pfizer, but still...cop becomes a drug dealer.) While she's doing that, she has a kid with a mystery illness that's stealing the child's hearing. She spends soooo much time trying to solve the medical mystery herself because the doctors are stumped--and she does solve it, just in time to save the child's hearing in one ear. Unrealistic. THEN, she has a SECOND child with a totally unrelated medical mystery, too? I mean, come on. That's just drama for the sake of adding drama. And guess what this army officer and medical sales professional starts doing next? She writes romance novels! Ha. As if that had anything to do with anything else so far. Her 3rd book gets nominated for some big national award, and her 5th book wins it. But wait--she conveniently has one of her novels chosen by a movie producer from a catalog of 250 titles, so she gets to see her work translated to the screen. Again--the odds are ridiculous. But I'm going to keep reading, because who knows what rabbit will get pulled out of the hat next?

“You’re one of the wild creatures at heart, I think. It’s good to know you are out there, doing what you were born to do. I’m not trying to stop you or change your life. But I think we deserve an evening as Ned and Nancy Drew, just once in our lives.”
Caro Carson, Gingerbread & Jingle Bells

“I’m no longer thirteen.” She caught her breath. “And neither are you, Evie Richards.”
Caro Carson, Gingerbread & Jingle Bells

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Dr. Seuss

“He's giving me the full Mr. Darcy treatment now. Not the evolved Darcy who meditates on the fine eyes and takes a sexy plunge in the pond at Pemberley, but the haughty, judgmental Darcy from the first half of Pride and Prejudice. Any minute now I expect him to declare that I'm tolerable, but not pretty enough to tempt him.”
Teri Wilson, The Accidental Beauty Queen

“Just remember, Sam. Love is a rare and precious thing.” Mavis winked at Cinder before she deposited Nibbles into her walker basket and prepared to walk away. “And when it’s real, it’s more than just black-and-white.”
