Many of you may know (if you see my FB posts) that I am a military spouse. I've been with my hubby since before he was in the service and have been through so much with him because of it. Boot camp, training school, a World Deployment, a South American deployment, an Alaskan Deployment (where he didn't get me any Orca photos might I add lol), and plenty of location changes. In all that time I've slowly immersed myself into military romance. One thing became apparent quickly, USCG romance did not exist. When I saw an anthology call for a military short I jumped at the chance to write an erotic short around his branch, to honor him and give all the men and women spouses at least one story they can relate too. I was fortunate and it was accepted, however the antho didn't happen and I was left with a random story that I wasn't certain what to do with.
When my husband's boat returned home from deployment in early October with so many accolades and achievements, I knew I needed to redo the story, add some more content and simply do it as a short. As I was literally typing up the submission to my wonderful editor my sexy Adam Ayash muse went "Hello....5 military shorts, honor them all in the small way that you can!" Which meant that as I was typing a submission email I had three other branches of service storylines slam into my head. The Marines story is still playing hide and seek but the MC's have made themselves known and named already. And so, the series "In Service" was born.
I've been fortunate enough to have my editor not only enjoy Sinking Ships, the Coast Guard Romance, but accepted the idea for the full series. So throughout the next two years, as close to Vet's Day and Memorial Day as the calendar would allow I've got some steamy military shorts to bring to you all! I'm so excited to be doing this series; despite what it may seem I'm not the biggest contemporary writer so to have found these stories is a wonderful way for me to give just a small bit of thanks to the men and women who serve, not to mention the families that are just as much a part of the service as well.
While I've got dates for all the ebooks and the boxed set (Which just may have a little something extra in it if I can get the muse on board) I'm going to wait a little to announce the official release dates under the "My Work" section of the site. The reason you ask? Well I don't have a title for the Marine story yet as the plot is only halfway shown to me so I want to put my muse to the test the next few days and see if I can't get the whole plot and a title before I release the dates.
Thank you to all the men and women who serve and the families that wait behind for them. For the unknown heroes who do the work in the background - caring for kids, taking care of the house, making sure nothing falls apart during deployment - these romances are for you just as much as the active duty personnel.
