For Senior Chief Hank O’Mara no woman compares with the sea until he meets Lieutenant Bethany Morton. Only the sea can draw two such opposite and passionate people together. Only US Navy regulations keep them apart. Fraternization between Officer and enlisted is forbidden. Beth and Hank do their utmost to resist their mutual attraction. Can love prove stronger than either the sea or the USN? To find out, Hank will sacrifice his career, and Beth will risk her professional dreams.

Reader Alert!
The attraction between a hunky Senior Chief and a smoking hot Lieutenant breaks all the rules—his, hers and the US Navy’s. Unable to resist, the couple yields to desire’s command.  Both expect their incendiary passion to burn out long before it can endanger their careers.  Neither expected the insatiable sex they share to become an enduring love.

To My Readers:
Dear Readers,
I’m very excited to bring you Off Limits, the story of Hank O’Mara and Bethany Morton.  Partly because I’ve always wanted to write a steamier version of O’Henry’s The Gift of the Magi (one of my all time favorite Christmas stories).  But mostly because the men and women of the US Navy are heroes that I have long admired. I am a US Navy veteran and very proud of my service.  I am equally proud of the service of others to our country.  The members of all the services sacrifice more than we know, and not all the sacrifices are on the battlefield.  Sometimes the sacrifices aren’t even visible.  For different reasons both Hank and Bethany want to give a lifetime of service to the USN.  This links them as much as their physical attraction, but that attraction exists in direct opposition to US military regulations.  As the attraction grows and develops Beth and Hank each must decide what they value most and what they are willing to give up to get it.  Nothing moves me like a story in which forbidden love triumphs and the greater the obstacles—love for country is a very strong obstacle—the greater the sacrifice, the greater love’s victory.

review by: L.T Blue  


Fraternization between the enlisted and officers of the US Navy is off limits.  Senior Chief Gunner’s Mate Hank "The Wall" O’Mara is very much aware of this.  Lieutenant Bethany Morton comes from a long line of servicemen and dreams of continuing up the ladder within the Navy.  During a baseball game Beth is the last minute batter for the opposing team and while her small stature may have given the appearance of someone not capable of playing the game, Hank, as the catcher, quickly realized that he had to focus on the game and not the beauty who just stepped up to the plate.  Beth not only scores the winning home run for her team but she got under the skin of "The Wall", known as Hank.  Beth and Hank know they shouldn’t begin an affair or continue to see each other, but something happens when they meet to call things off.

I enjoy men in uniform and I love them even more when that uniform designates them as a Navy man.  Off Limits offers up a treat of a Navy enlisted man who understands the rules but knows that sometimes rules are made to be broken.  Beth and Hank together make for some great entertainment and awesome sexual chemistry.  Both Beth and Hank know they should not engage in an affair, let alone a relationship, but the chemistry between them will not be denied.  I enjoyed Ms. Allyn's attention to the struggle that Beth and Hank would have falling in love with each other while continuing to do their jobs.  The sex is explosive between Hank and Beth and each time they come together is so much sweeter since they are breaking all the rules.  There are a few secondary characters in the story staying in the background to help Hank and Beth's growing relationship.  Off Limits was an excellent and emotional story with realistic characters that moved the pace along nicely.  I look forward to Joe "the player's" story in Hazard Duty.
