Sunday's Oldies but Goodies...

In honor of Memorial Day, this week's Oldie but Goodie is....

Tell It To The Marines
by Amy J. Fetzer

Released December 2004

Antholigies can be quite fun to read, and 'Tell It To The Marines' is definitely fun!

In the first story, 'Hot Conflict', Mary Grace Heyward is a wedding planner. She is kidnapped during the vow renewal ceremony she planned for her older sister and her husband, the U.S. Ambassador to Panama. Coming to the rescue is Gunnery Sergeant David James "DJ" McAllister - his history with Mare makes him the perfect person to rescue her.

In the second story, 'Hot Landing Zone', Dr, Katherine Collier has been kidnapped by terrorists right off the streets of Hong Kong, where she had been attending a conference to discuss a formula she had create that had the potential to be used as a chemical weapon. Gunnery Sergeant Jake Mackenzie and his team have been dispatched to rescue the female scientist, and eliminate the terrorist cell that has her.

The third story 'Hot Target', introduces us to Samantha Previn - American Peace Corps volunteer. She is in Columbia inoculating the inhabitants of various small villages from disease. Unknown to her, the American and Colombian governments are getting ready to jointly sweep the region for drug runners, and Gunnery Sergeant Rick Cahill and his team have been sent to pull her out before she gets caught in the crossfire.

All three stories were action-packed, and Ms. Fetzer relies on her experiences with the Marines (Dad was a Marine, she has a retired Marine for a husband, and a son in the Corps) to deliver very realistic details of what it's like for these three Marines to be deployed on such dangerous missions.

As all three stories are short, I am not giving anything else away - you will have to read them to find out what happens! The heat level in all three stories was very sensual, but necessary.

Ms. Fetzer has a fun website you can visit at

Happy reading!
