It's here! It's here!

OMG, Duty and Devotion is released. I'm relieved. Excited! Elated!

*wiggle dance*

Okay, okay. Grow up time AR. Be a professional. Be a mature adult....Oh! Screw that! Duty and Devotion is out there in the open!

Go get a copy you goofy goofs! It's available at All Romance Books, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Sony, Kobo, and the Apple iBookstore. Heck, you can even visit Desert Breeze's website and buy directly from them, here!

Check out the book trailer silly heads!

In celebration one commenter is going to get a special gift package. I'm not saying exactly what it will be. I'm not saying it would be a cool gift, swag, and a free copy of the book. I'm not saying that at all. *wink, wink*

Sisters Nettie and Rinny Matterville head off to war, discovering true love can be found even in a time of conflict. Nettie learns true love isn’t always obvious; sometimes it’s right in front of your face. Rinny learns that love at first site can and does happen, but the real challenge is keeping it.

Older sister Nettie wasn’t sure what the militia thought she was, but she knew and it wasn’t a space fighter pilot on the front line. But Dad always pressed the importance of duty to your territory. Now she has to figure out how to survive in a place she never imagined ending up. Keeping things interesting is a very overconfident competitor, James. Through it all, she’s got her younger sister Rinny. Or so she believed until the moment she lost her.

As for Rinny, the Mars facility gives her chance to break family expectation and she thrives in ground combat training. She also learns life off the concert stage can be just as rewarding when she makes her first real friends and meets Daniel, who could just be “the one”. He’s a little more reluctant and it turns out he has a reason, a secret involving Rinny. After the enemy attacks her facility and kills her best friend, Daniel disappears. Now captured, Rinny must fight behind enemy lines to help her people remain free, and live to return home.


  1. Congrats on the release AR, I'm very excited for you. My book budget is blown until I get paid but I couldn't resist downloading the sample to my Kindle.

    It hooked me right in and I read straight through the first 5 chapters even though I had errands to run! I haven't been treated to quality (recently written) SciFi like this in too long.

    So yeah, as soon as I get Duty and Devotion for real it's moving to the top of my TBR pile. I'll get a review on it out as well.

  2. Wow! What a compliment E.C.! Me (and my ego)love to hear I delayed your errands. (heehee)

    And thank you to Marion!

  3. Thanks Jean! How have you been?

  4. Congratulations to you! This is really exciting -- Yay! Good For You! (*Irish Jig Dancing Here*)! Clapping and Shouted Applause! These are all genuine sentiments, despite my silliness. I'm super-jazzed, and just purchased the kindle version. Looking forward to a great read. Happy writing, you!

  5. ((HUGS)) Thank you Signe! I can't wait to hear what you thought about it.

    See you in the halls!!!! But remember, no humor allowed.
