It's here - the long awaited Cocked And Loaded, Shootn' Stars and Blastn' Away Giveaway Blog Hop!  It's a huge blog hop with more prizes than I can count!

I'm writing this late on the Fourth of July so I'm still seeing stars from all the fireworks!

Here's a sexy little taste from my World War II era romance complete with buy links....

In The Shadow of War
Rebel Ink Press May 17 2012
206 pages
ISBN # RIP0004104


Her great-granddaughter wants to know if Bette remembers World War II for a school project and her questions revive old memories….

Small town school teacher Bette Sullivan's life was interrupted when the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor on December 7th 1941 but her world changed forever when she met Private Benny Levy, a soldier from the Flatbush neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York stationed at Camp Crowder, the local Army base.

Their attraction is immediate and mutual but as their relationship grows their love and lives are shadowed by World War II. As the future looms uncertain the couple comes together with almost desperate need and a powerful love they hope can weather anything, including the war.


Her fingers stroked his skin, marveling at the feel, delighting in the remembered connection.  Need increased her craving, stoked her yearning until she abandoned all pretense and surrendered to desire.

            Benny touched her, too, handled her at first as if she’d been spun from fine glass but as his passion rose, his fingers roughened.  They touched, fondled, and caressed over each bit of the other’s body and then his arms locked around her.  With her caught in his embrace, Benny lowered his mouth onto hers but she lifted her lips so the impact happened simultaneously.  Like some thirsty man long denied water, Benny drank from her mouth with necessity yet also with care.  Bette offered all she had to him and took back until she too, feasted. 

            Powerful heat surged from his mouth into hers and spread through her body like spring overtaking winter.  He burned with carnal fever and she caught it.  Without haste they coupled, bodies intertwining into a single unit and they kissed everywhere, without embarrassment or remorse.  Her teeth tickled his throat and nibbled, leaving a purple mark behind.  Benny’s mouth suckled at her breasts until her nipples ripened.  Bette swept back her hair as she took his cock into her mouth.  Her lips and tongue teased it until he pulled her back to say, “My turn.”

            Benny positioned Bette so he could use his mouth to pleasure her and when her vagina resonated with begging need, he mounted her then with slow, careful strokes coaxed them both to climax.  Each movement caressed her until Bette couldn’t bear any more and they came as one, with blinding, sweating, shouting joy.

            Short of breath they lay side by side, facing each other and when he found enough air to speak, Benny said, “I’ve needed to do that for so long.”
