Author information

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.

Review quote

"In the confines of a vintage Mustang, two soldiers just back from Afghanistan head for home. Along the way, they manage to bring new meaning to the phrase "Park and Ride." --"Penthouse" "Each story tells a unique story easily allowing the reader to slip into this fantasy world engulfing ones senses with pure euphoric pleasure. Each of the writers add their own unique spin on erotica ranging from light and sensitive to bondage providing eighteen short stories to suit any readers personal preference." --Musings with CraloyaKim "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" t
