"A Little Boy and a Time Traveling Woman Warrior bring Love and Laughter to a lonely SEAL"
In ROUGH AND READY former Medieval Viking now Navy Seal
Torolf Magnusson traveled back to eleventh century Norway to
aid Hilda Berdottir and the abused women of the Sanctuary
end the tyrannical reign of Steinolf. One minute Torolf and
his SEAL buddies (born in the 20th Century) were sitting in
a longship replica in the middle of a fjord and the next
they had traveled back in time.
However, once the battle had been won and they had returned
home, Torolf's modern counterparts all had trouble wrapping
their minds around the "time travel' concept and nobody had
spoken about it since. Still Zachary "Pretty Boy" Floyd had
fond memories of a big, blond and beautiful warrior by the
name of Britta. Pretty Boy had no trouble getting women.
They had a tendency to throw themselves at him. No, he
hadn't been a monk since his return to the present but he
couldn't help wondering from time to time, what if? His
story is DOWN AND DIRTY.
Not that Zach had much time to wonder about much these days.
He'd landed himself in a heap of trouble, make that
responsibility. Frenzied sex in the heat of battle on a
mission in Afghanistan over five years ago had resulted in a
son Zach had recently discovered. The child's mother had
been killed fighting against the Al-Qaeda and her own
father, a powerful and brutal leader who as a result gained
custody of little Samir. While on a mission Zach had
recovered "Sammy" and had returned with him to the U.S. The
"kidnapping" had become a diplomatic nightmare, and Zach's
punishment had been assignment to the Navy's latest
experimental program, WEALS, a female version of the SEALS.
Yes he definitely needed a woman ... to babysit Sammy the
snot. Oh he loved his son, but what a handful!
Britta the Big, had lost interest in warfare following the
departure of her friend Hilda and the time traveling SEALs.
It had been thought that they'd all perished in a mudslide.
But when Britta left the walls of the Sanctuary she had
become once more at the mercy of her whoring father and
brothers who had it in their minds to marry her off to some
loathsome lout for their financial benefit. It was thus that
Britta found herself behind the walls of a nunnery. But even
there she was not safe for her kinsmen had no qualms about
picking off anyone who stepped beyond the shelter of those
walls. Already a sister or two had gone missing. And so to
ensure their safety and her own, Britta had hatched a plan
to fake her own death.
The best laid plans of mice and men (and women) often go
awry at the most inconvenient times. One minute Britta is
planting evidence of her death beneath a cliff in eleventh
century Norway and the next she is hanging from a net and on
a Naval installation in 21st century Coronado, California.
She'd escaped torture by her father to face a new kind of
torture as one of the new WEALs recruits. If that's not
enough, the loathsome lout Zachary is one of her torturers!
Pretty Boy needs a woman alright and it better NOT be just
to babysit his pint sized brat. Britta is on the warpath and
she wants to experience multiple orgy-as-hims A.S.A.P.!
Of course good old grandfather Arsallah is not about to let
them all live happily ever after without complications. As
a Pitt alumna I truly had to smile at the terrorist's grand
diversion tactic (evil grin). Yes, that's a teaser. You'll
just have to read the book to figure that one out!
What I loved most about this story is that with all capable,
well trained fighting men available to save the day, it is
Britta and little Sammy drawing on their courage and wits
who are the true heroes of this tale. Naturally Down and
Dirty is rife with Sandra's signature humor and toe curling
sexy scenes. For love and laughter, I highly recommend that
you read DOWN AND DIRTY.
