It's 2050, and humans are an endangered species. Lieutenant Robert Sutton has survived the collapse of civilization by luck, his wits, and a chance mutation that makes him immune to the nanovirus that has wiped out millions. Now, his compound of survivors is surrounded by the infected, who are driven by the need to spread the contagion through sex. It is only a matter of time before they attack. So when Sutton is assigned to interrogate a prisoner who claims to have overcome the infection, he immediately suspects a trap....
Nicholas Rider may have survived the virus, but he's a changed man, ruled by his desires. But his need for Sutton is different. Rider craves an end to his overwhelming needs, and Sutton could be the man to do it.
Secure in his belief that he's invulnerable, Sutton can't understand or resist his intense attraction to his prisoner. Will Rider be his downfall - or his savior?

I can't for the life of me figure out what previous reviewers were looking for in this book. So, because the book is so short, I listened to the book again, and still didn't get it. It is almost as if they wanted to read/hear a longer book, though it was clear that it’s only three hours long. For me this book was well written, and well read, with lots of action and character development. Obviously the character development is on the thin side, but knowing that the story is so short you expect that, right. I mean you won't be able to fully flesh out a character in 94 pages, so why judge so harshly. I found the book engaging and engrossing, and I think that that is because I wasn't expecting the author to write the next Lord of the Rings.
I will definitely buy another book narrated by Shannon Gunn - this is already my second, but will not be purchasing another story written by Ms. Knox.
The premise of the book had much potential, but fell flat on many levels. As it is, the book is more of a novella. Not a lot of time to get a message across and what time there was, is wasted.
There was a lot of reiteration on the same issues - was Rider infected?, who was he?, if Annabel is infected I'll kill him, etc.. I found myself wanting to FF just to get to a point. What I found after listening to over 2/3 of the story is that there wasn't much of one. The book was really too short for that. I was looking forward to a steamy listen, but all I got was all talk - very little action. A bit more detail could have been given to flesh out an explanation on the infection that the characters were trying to avoid and the backgroung on the main characters. The physical interaction between Rider & Sutton was also sorely lacking. The constant banter - and there was a lot of it, wore on me very quickly. Very repetative
If the author did a re-write, I'd read it. The subject matter caught my attention but couldn't keep it.
I liked Rider - very cocky and sure of himself. The British accent was fitting. Could have been quite the sexy character if he'd been allowed to play more.
If it was written better - yes. I would love to see Michael Fassbender as Rider. Not sure about Sutton.
Bitter Harvest was a good storyline but the writing left a lot to be desired.
Ava March: Brook Street Thief.
The Narrator did an ok job on the characters but at first I thought it was Australian not English.
I would rewrite the two main characters to be more likeable.
I had to review this book for Night Owl Romance Reviews. I didn't give it a good review there either.
