Desert Blade

In the postapocalyptic 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 10 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.

Publisher's Summary

In the postapocalyptic 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 10 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.

    "Sex novel with a plot."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    What amazes me is how books like this get published in the 1st place.


    What could Ella Drake have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The detailed sex parts reflect the authors own fantasy. It doesn't fit well or belong.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Reay Kaplan’s performances?

    If it is books like this, no.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointement.
