One of my favorite books of recent years is a post-apocalypse trans-Siberian trucker story, DRIVEN. It came out a few years ago under the name Eve Kenin, but the author recently republished it under her real name, Eve Silver.
I read this book when it first came out and even though I would never have thought to write a romance that a) is set in an Arctic wasteland; b) involves gene manipulation; and c) involves big rig trucking….well, I am still consumed with jealousy that I didn’t write this book. It’s got everything: a truly kick-ass heroine who fends for herself and saves both herself (and others) more than once, a hero who is tough, sexy, and so endearingly charming it makes me laugh out loud, and a plot filled with taut intrigue and adventure.
When I read it again (in reissued form) recently, it was even better than the first time, and it still made me cry. There’s a sequel, HIDDEN, which will hopefully be made available soon because it’s just as good as DRIVEN. And then you can all join my campaign to lobby the author for another sequel…
I think you should be able to find it at most ebook retailers.
