Bestselling authors Lauren Dane and Megan Hart deliver two stories of longing, lust, and love in futuristic worlds where love comes first—then survival…

“Land’s End” by Lauren Dane…The Land’s End highway is one of the most dangerous places in the universe. The constant peril of brigands keeps Verity Coleman stuck in Silver Cliffs, dreaming of the open road—and of Loyal Alsbaugh, the tall and silent highway patrolman. When her town is attacked, Verity has a chance to win over Loyal’s muted heart. But will his wounded past make him leave her along the road, or can she convince him to take her along?

I enjoyed this story of a confident and capable woman who yearns for more and Loyal, the sexy lawman who wins her heart. I liked them both right away and the world they live in. The author managed to bring me there right away and wrote just enough danger to make it exciting. The romance was hot and very enjoyable. I only wish the story was longer and hope that she writes more about this world.

“By the Sea of Sand” by Megan Hart…Captain Kason Reed was willing to give his life to the Sheirran Defense Forces, but now he can’t remember anything but bits and pieces of the war. When his sexual attraction to his caregiver, Teila, causes him to make advances toward her, she becomes the aggressor, urging him with her body to explore the memories of his past—memories that all seem to draw him back to Teila…

This was an “other-world” “ steampunkish” story showing that returning disabled war veterans and their problems can span all worlds. If you enjoy a lot of flaming hot sex, this novella will certainly appeal to you. It is not my favorite genre but the writing was well done, smooth and made me hope for their happily-ever-after.
