2050 humans are almost extinct and only pockets of strongholds are left. Those still alive are slowing being overrun by a Nano virus that has been introduced into the world by an A.I. that decided humans were too independent and needed to work together. So the A.I. introduced the Hive Nano virus.
When Nicholas Rider stumbles into one of the strongholds he is captured and interrogated by Lieutenant Richard Sutton. Rider had been infected by the virus, but Rider has overcome the programming and is not contagious anymore. Sutton doesn't want to believe Rider isn't a danger to the stronghold and his charges. It makes things more difficult because Sutton is attracted to Rider violently and has trouble denying the attraction.
When the infected attack the stronghold Sutton must work with Rider to save the others from being captured and infected.
Can Sutton trust Rider to help the stronghold? Can they save the others or will Rider betray Sutton and one of the last strongholds still alive?
Bitter Harvest wasn't one of those stories that I will recommend. I almost didn't finish it because I didn't like either Sutton or Rider, I don't know if I had liked them that I would have liked the storyline better or not. So this one I can't recommend.
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 nano-virus 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?
