This anthology contains 3 novellas that had a similar premise: the hero is a Marine who's sent to rescue the heroine in some "exotic" location, the extraction doesn't go as smoothly as planned, they get separated from his team, and they fall in love while struggling to survive whatever danger they're in until they're back to civilization. Even so, each novella had its own "flavor" and the end result was uneven.

Hot Conflict (3 stars)
This story was OK and the H/h were nice, but I didn't feel a s
In Hot Conflict childhood friends, running for their lives in Panama, finally decide (after 18 years!) to screw their friendship—literally.

It was good, but not that good. Somehow the story “leaked” around the edges. No (plausible) explanation was given as to why they never tried to sort their feelings before. He was a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, she was a pampered little princess (that never stopped people before!), he pushed her into the arms of the wrong man (idiot!), she married

Ce livre est un recueil de nouvelles de romance militaire. L'auteur nous propose ici trois courts récits bien écrits et passionnants. Pour toutes les fans de militaires, ce livre est parfait pour passer l'été.

Sauvetage musclé raconte le sauvetage de la sœur de l'épouse de l'ambassadeur par une équipe de militaires dont le chef n'est autre que l'ancien meilleur ami de l'héroïne. Les échanges entre les deux amis d'enfance sont croustillants et on ne s'ennuie pas une minute. Les tensions sont bien

This book has three stories of Marine rescue scenarios. They are quick reads. I like the heroines because even though they are scared, they are spicy and come through when the chips are down.

3 Short stories that I thoroughly enjoyed all with well developed characters. Great quick reads!

Three novellas. Three lusty Marines. Three feisty women. Three hot stories. Three cheers for Ms. Fetzer!

The stories all follow a similar theme, and all open the same way. Our hero of the day is embarking on a rescue mission in a remote area (Panama, East China Sea, South America). It's just another job, another duty, another “package”. Marine and package are separated from the rest of the unit and spend a couple of days alone, and the package becomes more than just a package, more than just a d

I didn't think I would like this book. I'm not big on short stories but I enjoyed this author's book Naked Truth and this book is better. She does an excellent job of being the characters to life in minimum pages. The characters really clicked and you could feel their lives. I loved the Marine background. I would highly recommend this book to any romantic readers. Great beach book.

Love these short stories, and the fact that the women in them are in some ways savants and in others totally flaky. They're interesting. I like the marines in the stories, too, though wonder if they'd fall so hard so fast if the stories were longer. Regardless, I like them. :)
This book is broke down into 3 stories within it.

Some of the characters carry over. The 1st story was fast paced and had some erotica. The 2nd story was a snooze, was waiting for it to pick up and got bored and put the book down to go back to the library.

good summer read if you are into a lot of sex in your romances. The first third to half of each story is spent with extractions and sexy thoughts. The rest of the story is mainly sex.

Typical Fetzer military "bodice ripper"...a trio of vignettes in which the handsome, honorable marine rescues the "damzel in distress"and gets his reward!!!

If you want a BIG dose of hot and steamy then this is the book for you. Let's just say if this were a would be X-rated.

Hi there. Thanks for stopping by!

I'll tell you right off that I don't like reading my own bios, let alone writing them. It's like tooting your own horn. But if you're here, then you want to know something about me. So how about I break some ‘writers have a glamorous life' myths first off.

Myth 1: Writers have always been writers.
Not me. I was a licensed cosmotologist for years, and didn't even put
