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.

Review:

"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." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Kristina Wright had no idea what to expect from military life when she married an enlisted Navy sailor after a whirlwind long distance courtship just three months before the first Gulf War. She can say it may not be for everyone, but it's a hell of a ride! In the over two decades since they said "I do," her husband James has worked his way up the ranks to Lieutenant Commander and she has become an award-winning author whose erotic fiction has appeared in over 90 anthologies. They have lived in three states, endured seven deployments (two while her husband was assigned to Navy Special Warfare) and countless months of underway training exercises and counter narcotics operations, made the happy transition from "snail" mail to e-mail and had two children. Their first son was born in 2009 while James was on an eight month deployment to the Middle East, but he was lucky enough to be stateside when their second son was born in 2011. Inspired by her South Florida roots and tales of drug running and espionage, Kristina received the Golden Heart Award for Romantic Suspense from the Romance Writers of America for her first novel. She is also the editor of six other Cleis Press anthologies, including the best selling Fairy Tale Lust and Best Erotic Romance. She currently lives with her husband and sons in Hampton Roads, VA, home to the legendary SEAL Team Six and the largest naval base in the world.
