A FEMINIST, POLITICAL, ACTION THRILLER Here's what Sensual Romance says about the lesbian novels of Susanna Valent: "Though there is action and lots of violence . the sex is inventive and . the characters are all three dimensional and sympathetic. There are no heterosexual sexual encounters in [her] books." And now Susanna Valent's talent and daring take her to a whole new level in The Amazons Quartet, a four-volume saga of Sapphic passion and resistance in the face a new male-dominated future tyranny. In Book 1, "Strong to Save: A Tale of Forbidden Love," it's 2006 and the U.S. is being turned upside down by a government taken over by the extreme right wing elements of the Republican Party, an Islamic coalition, and a fundamentalist church. The right-wing Congress passes all kinds of repressive, xenophobic, sexist and homophobic laws. These new laws are depriving women of their social, political, financial, personal rights - even the right to control their own bodies and fates as they are increasingly confined to the domestic realm and heterosexual husbands gain complete legal power over their wives. Along with every other woman in the country, charismatic, dynamic Coast Guard Captain Kris Nordstrom, already in the closet as a military officer, she is given the heart-breaking choice of being fired or resigning from active duty simply because she is a woman. Meanwhile, her closest friend, Andrea Santiago, another career woman has also been forced from the Coast Guard, is secretly in love with Kris and is plotting a way the two of them can escape to the West Coast, which is the least restrictive location in the US and still safe for women, feminists and liberals.. As the U.S. boarders are sealed, will Kris and Andrea be able to escape, or will they end up in prison?
