Overview

Forty-two year old Ruth Corbin is one of the few surviving women on a damaged planet Earth. As if making it through a war and a meteor strike weren't bad enough, now Ruth has roaming bands of men wandering the planet hoping to ensnare any woman they can grab. But keeping these men at bay is the least of her worries, for there is one among them that's been bred specifically to catch everything he hunts, and he's on the prowl today. Bill Jackal is a sly "copperhead" police officer set loose upon the world after the fall of the Central Command. Raised in a government war camp, all he knows is killing, but he longs for much more. When he meets the tough female leader Ruth, he knows she's what's been missing all his life. All he has to do is convince her of that.

    Scorched Earth

    Ruth Corbin may be forty-two but as one of the few surviving women on the remains of planet Earth she is highly sought after. She has made it through a war and a meteor strike but will she be able to avoid capture by the bands of roaming men and the government "copperheads" (elite engineered police, who do not fail at their jobs)? More importantly will she want to escape this particular copperhead, or does she have a use for Bill Jackal that just might benefit them both?

    Ms. Marquis takes a different look at the future in Scorched Earth. Women are so scarce now that they have to be careful of being caught not only by the government, but roving bands of men, if they want to have any say in what their future is. I found Scorched Earth to be interesting and even a bit of a thought provoking read. Now don't get me wrong there are a number of super hot scenes between Ruth and Bill. What can you say when you have a genetically engineered man who knows what he wants, and will play by whatever rules he needs to, to ensure the future of his dreams? I look forward to more futuristic/Sci-Fi stories from Ms. Marquis.
