#SummerRead - Sci Fi Romance

Looking for something different to read?
How about:
- A post apocalyptic romance.
- A hero who has special prosthetic, armed with a deadly blade. The guy is is direct, down and dirty.
- The heroine Lidia is a doctor
- Desert sailing ships and adventure.
- Gritty sex.

"If you're looking for a fast entertaining read that takes you out of the everyday and into the future, Desert Blade is it. I LOVED the hero Derek - a strong, protective warrior who never loses his compassion despite the insanity of the world around him. The heroine Lidia is a doctor who adapts herself well to an uncertain future, but never gives up her values or vow to help those in need." - Julie Rowe

Near-Future, Science Fiction Romance, Post-Apocalyptic 

In the post-apocalyptic Midwest, now a ravaged dust bowl, former
guardsman Derek Covington must find help for a sick boy. With nothing
but memories of all he lost, Derek crosses the desert alone in search
of the doctor who saved his own life ten years ago. Drifter gangs who
loot and pillage don't dare come near, for Derek has a formidable
weapon: a prosthetic arm with a deadly blade.

For a decade, Dr. Lidia Sullivan has fantasized about the handsome
guardsman who'd been in her care. And now she can't deny his dangerous
request. But as they make the treacherous journey back to Old St.
Louis, they must contend with much more than fierce desert winds and
their unthinkable attraction. A fearless gang has spotted Lidia—a
rare woman—and will fight Derek to the death to get her. And though
he risks his life to save her for the sake of the child who needs her,
she fears there's one thing Derek will never risk: his heart.

Publisher's Weekly calls Desert Blade "a sweet romance in the burning
wreck of a postapocalyptic United States"
