In the Trenches by Lady Grey (Ed)
Coming Together: In the Trenches is a military-themed collection of erotica and erotic romance edited by Lady Grey. All proceeds will benefit Protect Our Defenders.
When people imagine what it might be like to be a soldier— or a sailor or an airman or a Marine—what often comes to mind is the picture of a highly-trained, self-sufficient, aggressive Type-A personality machine. This image, fed by Hollywood and shaped by years of headlines with foreign datelines, is only half the picture.
There is another side to the military man or woman. That is the side that wakes up in the morning missing someone. That is the side that pauses in the moment you put on your helmet, to let your gaze linger on the picture stashed within. That is the side that waits days, months, years to be with someone. That is the side that makes the soldier whole.
The stories in this anthology show that side of the soldier.
Contents: Once upon a Thursday (Robert Buckley); Half a Day from the Front (Skilja Peregrinarius); This is Me Holding You (Annabeth Leong); When He Comes Home (Di Topaz); Report on the Heart (Yvette Hines); A Problem with Authority (Lucy Felthouse); Comando Especial (Kimber Vale); Dutch & Lobo (Aliyah Burke)

Kickass iconic heroes who enter danger zones in the name of duty, honor, country--or maybe love--who conjure images of hard, chiseled bodies, deadly glares and camouflaged features?

What Happens at the Tavern Stays at the Tavern:
Since Tolkien's time, many authors have taken readers along on elaborate treks through fantastic worlds. In What Happens at the Tavern Stays at the Tavern, we asked writers to tackle the pauses and interstices in a fantasy quest. What kinds of steamy adventures happen behind the scenes, when our heroes and heroines are trekking along their journey?
The word "fantasy" evokes many different responses in people, but the epic fantasy quest is the heart of the genre. Heroes and heroines set off to defeat evil. Haven't you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes, during the downtime the authors gloss over? "What Happens at the Tavern Stays at the Tavern" gives us the peek behind the curtains we've all been waiting for (some of us since the "teaser" excerpt in the Harvard Lampoon's "Bored of the Rings"…).
In her latest anthology, editor Jennifer Levine invites you to escape into a world of fantasy, one where you get magic, warriors, fantasy worlds, and sex.Available at:
