Down & Dirty
A short story of love returning and death waiting in the wings. Incredibly fast, but there is more to come in other books.
What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Kirby doesn’t understand the pull she feels to the on-base doctor she’s serving with in Kuwait, but she’s not going to deny the attraction. Especially after two scorching hook-ups.
When he introduces her to a friend, her desire doubles. That night, her pleasure does as well.
Gwydion and Min have been searching for Kirby for centuries. The Valkyrie the loved in her previous lives, who’s been reborn over and over.
Sparks are flying, but so are RPG’s. If they can’t show Kirby the truth about her past, and help her achieve immortality, they may lose her to death again.
Hearts in the Sand was previously released in the Saved Between the Sheets anthology. It’s been edited and contains a new epilogue for this solo re-release.
Thoughts on Hearts in the Sand
This really was just a preview to a much bigger story, a taste of who and what these characters are. In these limited pages, we don’t get much development or get to experience any ‘whys’, though breadcrumbs were left along the way.
Honestly, even for a short story, it’s a little too fast, too intense and far too fast burn for my blood. A part of me understands the nuance of that choice – these characters have met and loved through countless of her lifetimes, but it still felt rushed. At this point, I am not sure I will continue their journey with them – it depends on the reviews for the next book.

My Final Verdict on Heart in the Sand
Fast, rushed and lacking in detail, this is more of an introductory taunt to a much bigger story. If you plan to read the series, starting here would be a good idea. It’s on Kindle.
