Hard as Roxx

Overview

In a world that is a distorted hybrid of rigid control and absolute lawlessness, Roxanne Grail broke a cardinal rule: she got pregnant, for the second time. Now, she and her two daughters need to make it across the Sahara to the frozen European north, and freedom. There are just two problems: one, she doesn't have a way to get there, and two, the One Child Law doesn't have a statute of limitations. The penalty for a second birth is death - to the mother and to the child.

And her youngest daughter's father? Well, he just happens to be a war hero and emerging leader of a shaky burgeoning democracy. An illegal child - especially the result of a rape - wouldn't be good for his career. He means to see that no one ever finds out.

Meet Roxx, a 6'3" martial arts instructor with a penchant for twentieth-century tech, including her 1940 Indian motorcycle. The Law says she must surrender her child, or die. Roxx never studied law. So, it is Roxx, her two daughters, and new partner, Trint, against the world.

Those odds suit Roxx just fine.

    The author spins an exciting tale that is set in a post apocalyptic world. If you like strong women, you will love Roxx, a single mother who must protect her family from the ruthless leaders upholding the law. In this futuristic society, the women have been genetically altered to limit pregnancies to just one. However, Roxx’ genetic makeup does not carry the enhanced code, and she finds herself pregnant with a second child as a result of a rape. Once the baby is born, Roxx must protect her two daughters not only from a government that would execute both mother and child, but also from the man who had ravished her. As the months pass, it becomes harder for Roxx to remain in the home she had made for her family. She no longer has a choice and must flee with her daughters across the Sahara desert, hoping to reach the European continent, and safety.

    This story is action packed with exciting twists when you least expect them. If you enjoyed “Children of Men,” you’ll love this book. I look forward to reading more from this author.
