No Commitments by Val Sharp

The Indie Book of the Day for 25th of January, 2013!

Genre: Action & Adventure, War

Set in the era of the Vietnam War, this is a love story between a young man and woman caught up in the throes of that era. CLAY STONER: born and raised in the Ozarks, Annapolis graduate, navy pilot, a fun loving jet jockey – until he learns he is going to have to bomb real people. MARIANNA HAIZET: daughter from a renowned Swiss banking family, sheltered in boarding schools while pusuing her music studies, and recovering from a shattering experience after having known little joy in her life – until she meets Clay.

OUR COUPLE meet by chance in Nice during a Bastille Day weekend, and when they part neither imagines their lives will ever cross again. They are from two different worlds. But fate intervenes and they do meet again – and connect – and despite repreated vows of “no commitments” she becomes immersed in his world of rowdy parties and the tension and torment surround- ing young women and their pilots waiting to go off to war. They stumble into a quixotic love affair that each believes is hopeless.

Little do they know that their destiny is to be caught up in an international intrigue that will lead from the South of France through Switzerland and all the way back to the Ozarks, or that she will become a singing star, or that as a couple their names will become famous and indelibly linked to one of the greatest scandals of all time.

The questions raised throughout are simple…what is love…can ideals triumph in a world of compromise?
