In Love with Love–celebrating the old, the new and the USN

by Rue Allyn

Cover art for Off LimitsA new book and a lifelong love, I have a lot to celebrate, and I hope you’ll join me.  I’ve been in love with love since reading my first romance at the age of… ah, well let’s just say I was rather young.  However, I didn’t really understand being in love until I met the man of my dreams, my lifelong love (we recently celebrated an anniversary).  We spent the first years of our marriage on active duty in the US Navy.  The early years of a marriage are never easy, and being in the military makes everything tougher.  Way too many military personnel sacrifice love and family to duty, honor and country.  The choices and willing sacrifices of our service members is the basis for Off Limits, the new book I’m celebrating (check out the terrific cover art).  Hank and Bethany’s tale was inspired a little bit by my own experience but mostly by all the men and women I met during my years of duty in the USN. For Senior Chief Hank O’Mara no woman could compare with the sea until he met Lieutenant Bethany Morton.  Only the sea could draw two passionate people of such opposite backgrounds together, and only US Navy regulations could keep them apart.  Because fraternization between Officer and enlisted is forbidden, both Beth and Hank do their utmost to resist the passion and love growing between them.  However, love proves stronger than either the sea or the USN. If they are to be together, Hank must sacrifice his career and Beth will risk the destruction of her professional dreams.  Please leave a comment and let tell me what you think about the cover, the story, the Navy or any other topic you’d like to share. Off Limits is due out April 1, 2012, 31 short days from now.   Read an excerpt and place advance orders for Off Limits at the following link, http://eredsage.com/store/Off_Limits.html .
