Review


"In "Duty and Desire", love comes fast and hard. From the quintessential military man, to the women who don a uniform and serve beside them, and the loved ones who wait at home for their return, both in the past and the present, the stories in "Duty and Desire have it all.""
-Cat Johnson, author of "Red Blooded"

"Wright, herself a Navy wife, assembles 18 red-hot tales of men and women in uniform that range from WWII-era Russia to modern-day Afghanistan. While celebrating the valor, not to mention hotness, of those who serve their country, this anthology commendably covers darker issues, including post-traumatic stress syndrome and serious injuries, and love of all kinds, both straight and gay. Perhaps most touching is Sacchi Green's "Sergeant Rae," about two female soldiers sharing their lives together after one becomes a paraplegic saving the other's life in Iraq. Other standouts include Christine d'Abo's "Wilco," which serves up BDSM with a twist-a female junior officer and her submissive male superior-and Michelle Augello-Page's "Home," about a soldier deployed to Afghanistan having a hot webcam tryst with his stateside wife. This touching and realistic lineup is highly recommended. (Dec.)"

-Cat Johnson, author of "Red Blooded"


"Be ready to get up close and personal with the military when you pick up this collection. Featuring well-known erotica authors, including Delilah Devlin, J.K. Coi and Christine D'Abo, this anthology will give readers a lot to love. While each story has special meaning, it is Ericka Hiatt's "Fighting for Fresno" that stands out as a passion-filled tale, with incredible intimacy and beautifully raw emotion. The 18 short stories that make up this collection take place in different countries and even different times. Many of the stories are heterosexual relationships, but there is also the occasional same-sex couple. The anthology's uniting element is the fact that each couple featured includes military personnel."

"This collection of short stories provides both a stimulating collection of erotic tales and a thumbnail sketch of the various challenges that face the men and women who serve their country by being part of the military. The different perspectives provided by this talented group of authors vividly paint a moment in time that gives an opportunity for lovers to escape the harsh reality of war and separation, sometimes even though they are miles apart figuratively or literally. Many of these authors were new to me but all of them have penned a concise and entertaining read. "Duty and Desire: Military Erotic Romance"" is an anthology of 18 short stories edited by the talented Kristina Wright. This collection of spicy tales gives a glimpse of the sacrifices and challenges that face those who choose to serve their country. The tales range from delightfully carnal encounters to reminders that those who have been wounded still have a libido although their lovers may have to deal with handicaps, physical and/or mental. Among the many enjoyable entries are Delilah Devlin's "The Long Ride Home," a wickedly carnal description of a homecoming for two soldiers whose respective previous relationships didn't survive the stresses of deployment, Christine d'Abo's "Wilco" which is a sizzling tale of the role reversal that takes place when a navy woman takes a dominatrix position over her commander, and Kristina Wright's "For Better or Worse" that reminds us of the sacrifices that are willingly made and the stolen moments that lovers share that helps them make it through their terms of service."

"Each author in Kristina Wright's "Duty and Desire"dealt with sensitive topics that are associated with being in the military such as PTSD, death, breaking up with a boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse with tact, sensitivity, and humor to make each of these stories entertaining and believable. Being in the military is not easy whether as the military person or the spouse and it takes a special person to be able to deal with the challenges associated with military life. As an aside, the guy on the front cover....is so hot......whew! I have to fan myself."

From the Back Cover

Epic Stories of Love and War
The only thing stronger than the call of duty is the call of desire. "Duty and Desire" enlists a team of hot-blooded men and women from every branch of the military who serve their country and follow their hearts. Stateside and abroad, these warriors meet passion and danger head-on.
From the army grunt who unwraps his wife like a gift in "Fighting for Fresno," to the injured soldier who sets his heart on the line for the nurse who healed his body and soul in "Out of Time," these tales embrace the ache of deployment and celebrate the sweet relief of shore leave. With a foreword by bestselling author Cat Johnson, "Duty and Desire" features stories of U.S. soldiers, sailors, aviators, marines and many more. Uniforms have never been sexier.
