A-Z Solomon's Compass Style: Jake Solomon

Welcome A-Z bloggers!
And everyone else, of course :)
My A-Z posts are all about my new book, SOLOMON'S COMPASS.
Read the A post to learn who AJ is.

Hi, there. Jake Solomon.

I hear Carol's been building me up as a sexy scoundrel.

While I'm not the one to ask about the sexy part, I can tell you she got the scoundrel right.

I'm a former SEAL Team Commander. Sorry, but I can't share details about my duties.

Since retiring from the Navy after twenty years of service, I work for my dad's security company, Compass Points International  - CPI. Much of the time, being an active duty SEAL was easier. 

My first day in Rock Harbor is a little fuzzy. I was a little fuzzy. I'd been awake for more than 24 hours and flown as non-stop as possible from Finland to Texas.

But I had to get it together in a hurry. I'm damn good at that. I come from a world where the mission is to get it done.

Carol said I should tell you one thing about my time in Rock Harbor that won't give away any secrets.

I knew right away what I'd tell you. I think Carol probably knew, too. The most important thing that happened in Rock Harbor is that I met Taylor Campbell.

That's it from me.

I enjoyed meeting you, and I'll see you in SOLOMON'S COMPASS!


Carol is blogging with Linda Grimes today and chatting about The Queen of the Glitch Fairies. I'm going over there myself just to see what that's all about.

Funny thing--when I woke up this morning and double-checked your guest post, part of it had been replaced by the wingdings font. That's never happened to me before. I think your glitch fairies came calling overnight. *grin*

Never fear, though--I fixed it. I hope. *crosses fingers*

Ack! See what I mean, Linda? They sneak up and bite!
Julie Flanders said…
I've been anxious to meet you Jake since Carol doesn't even deny she has a crush on you! Can't wait to get to know you better in the book. :D
Great to meet you Jake!! This is so wonderful of you Carol to be exhibiting these authors on here.
Laura Eno said…
I saw part of Carol's post from yesterday as Wingdings but I didn't mention it because nobody else did. I figured it was my computer doing it.

Nice to meet you, Jake. I'm partial to scoundrels. ;)
Inger said…
Hey, Jake, what were you doing in Finland of all places? I know secret stuff. Looking forward to finding out more about you.
Does Taylor think you're a scoundrel as well?

A sexy navy seal. MMmm :)
Carol Kilgore said…
You'll get to know me a lot better in the book, Julie. I hope you'll still like me.

OE - It was her idea.

Laura - Carol said if anyone sees any future posts as wingdings, she'd like to know. She said she probably won't know what to do about it, but she'd like to know. Ask Carol how to get in touch with me. We can share stories.

Inger - I was on assignment. Can't tell you any more. You understand.

Taylor most definitely thinks I'm a scoundrel, Alex.

Well, Rebecca, once again I'm not sure how sexy I am. That part of my life usually got me dirty, smelly, and hyped up on adrenaline.

Having missed the beginning I am jst getting into this and enjoying it very much. Brilliant.

Robin said…
Always happy to meet a sexy scoundrel. Oh wait... now we're treading into MY issues. Back to you... since I know something about scoundrels, Taylor has her hands full. I am taking a moment and wishing her *luck.*
It's nice to meet you Jack! :)
Clarissa Draper said…
I really liked this character.
Carol Kilgore said…
As long as you don't think I'm the brilliant one we'll get along fine Yvonne. Pleasure to meet you.

I had to laugh over this one, Robin. I'm the one who needs luck with Taylor. She can be a handful.

Jake, but that's OK. Nice to meet you, too, Tyrean.
Carol Kilgore said…
Well, hello, Clarissa. You sneaked in while I was talking with the other ladies. Didn't we have that chat earlier, LOL!
Romance Reader said…
Oh, thanks for introducing to Jack Solomon! A former Navy seal? Drool!

Nice to meet you Jake.
So what's the deal with you and Taylor?

Carol Kilgore said…
Hi, Nas. Maybe I can drool over you, too. A woman who brings red roses to the party must be beautiful herself.

Michelle - The deal with me and Taylor is ... Carol just yelled at me. You'll have to read the book.
VR Barkowski said…
Okay, Jake. What I want to know is whether you have a next assignment? You don't seem the type of guy with only one iron in the fire.

Carol Kilgore said…
As a matter of fact, I do, VR. But I can't talk about it. We're running scenarios now.
Oooohhhh. Sounds good to me.

Michael Di Gesu said…
A man should always have a bit if mystery... Just give us enough to know you're cool... Scoundrel,,,, maybe. Not... Lol.
Carol Kilgore said…
Heather - Wonderful!

Sandra - Thank you.

Michael - I agree, and I try to make that happen.
Helena said…
Hot damn, I think I'm in love with Jake. What woman doesn't fantasize about having (or giving in to) a sexy scoundrel?
Welcome Jake. However, I think you cheated a little there. The piece of news you gave to us - wasn't new. Still, it is nice to hear just how important it was to you.
Nick Wilford said…
Jake sounds like a no nonsense guy!
Lynda R Young said…
Gotta love the sexy scoundrels ;)
Carol Kilgore said…
Helena - I've met a few. I will say there weren't too many.

EC - Taylor is the most important person in my life. The cheat didn't hurt anyone. I've done worse.

Nick - Pretty much. Life's too short for games.

Lynda - That attitude usually served me well :)
