I have always enjoyed this author, and when I saw this title available on Netgalley, I knew I needed to read it. Lunar Heat is a recently republished version of the title Island Heat, that was originally published in 2007. I have always liked Kearney's books, and the genre she used for this book was well done. Lunar Heat is a story that takes place on Earth, in a futuristic time period, that involves a heavy involvement of the science fiction sub genre. Lunar Heat is a story about a man Cade who is desperate to do anything to save his people. Shara Weston will do anything to save Earth, even if that means she will have to betray the man that she loves. Both Cade and Shara have a connection from their first meeting, and despite the rocky path that lies before them only the love they have may save their lives and both of their worlds. I found Lunar Heat to be a very enjoyable read that sent chills down my spine. Lunar Heat offers a unique romantic story set in a futuristic/science fiction setting. The world that this author creates is magnificent, and I loved the way the story sets off from the beginning, with Cade crash landing on the moon that Shara lives on, and then he ends up saving her life from his enemy and brother. Cade is determined to save his people. Many of his people are literal slaves, because they weren't born first, and so they are dominated by first Born's. Cade was the one chosen, to free his kind. His people thrive on salt, they need it to survive. Earth has plenty of salt, especially in the water elements. But he needs the help of Shara to send it to his planet. Shara desires to help Cade, and he is the most gorgeous man she has ever met. But then her closest friend tells her she has visions of their planet being destroyed by the actions of Cade. This story involves a intense plot with plenty of danger and steamy desire. Overall I fell in love with Cade and Shara. They were such a delightful couple. I couldn't help but admire them both for their actions. I had a hard time deciding which character I liked more. Cade is more honest and upfront with Shara, than Shara is. However you sympathize with Shara's dilemma, and you wonder how they will find their HEA and save both of their worlds. The story line is full of complications and drama and a world of science fiction, with a mix of paranormal drawn in as well. A poignant yet intense romance that is a thrill of a ride!!! Be prepared to fly off your seats in this one!!

I'm almost positive I've read part of this book, if not all of this book previously. It's increasingly possible, given this is a re-publication of an earlier Kearney release, but that's okay. I was drawn into this book and couldn't put it down more than I absolutely had to. This book takes place somewhere in the future - quite a bit in the future, given we've got colonies on the moon, Mars, and Jupiter's moons, and can terraform asteroids. But that simply adds to the fun for me in this book. I'm definitely developing a taste for sci-fi romance. Shara's an former holovid star who's moved to an asteroid she purchased called Haven, which provides her a, er, haven from the paparazzi. She's quite happy living there all alone until Cade literally falls out of the sky into her terraformed lake (which has any number of fish and life brought up from Earth). Initially, she just wants to get rid of the man, but then she remembers a vision her best friend Jules had about a man falling from the sky and a potential threat to Earth. Cade's come to Earth to hopefully buy Shara's asteroid (didn't know she owned it), because it is a source of the mineral that will help open a portal to his homeworld to allow him to ship salt through so that the underclass (called underfirsts) can have enough salt to grow strong enough to overthrow the wicked Firsts who keep them continual slavery. There is immediately heat between these two, but a definite sense of conflict, both internal and external to keep them apart. Cade's focused solely on his mission and finds himself being distracted by Shara. Shara's secretly trying to find a way to stop Cade because of her friend's vision which showed Cade's mission destroying Earth. The villain, Cade's brother Jamar, is a nasty piece of work and I despised him for both his outlook on the underfirsts and his despicable treatment of everyone he comes in contact with. And yet ... I found him utterly believable as a person. I mean, the old saying "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" definitely applied here. It was a heart-stopping ride throughout the book and I loved how everything finally resolved in the end. There was also a teaser for the second book in the series, Solar Heat, and I really want to read that now. I guess it's confirmed. I'm a die-hard Kearney fan and hope some day to write like she does. Well, not like her, but be as awesome as she is. Thanks for letting me read this!Book provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Disclosure: I received this book from the publisher because of a contest at Writerspace. This book was a fast paced future romanctic suspense story. Susan did a great job of keeping me glued to my Kindle to see what would happen next. Shara and Cade were well matched as a couple and they grew into stronger characters as the story moved along. Jules was a truly outstanding support character for Shara. I enjoyed the fact that she actually got her own love story, too. I look forward to the second book in this series by Susan Kearney.

She sat down and waited for Java. She knew exactly what to do.
