Quite enjoyed it BUT not as good as her usual offerings, didn't really have that wow factor you normally associate with Lauren. Good sexy bits but without the tension of say her federation series. Still an enjoyable read but not one I'll rush to read again.

Didn't like the characters. Didn't like the randomness of either stories. Really like what both writers do in stand alone and shot stories but this book was a pass!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Review: There All Along 6 Dec. 2013
By Jen Twimom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Rating: B+ -- Liked It A Lot
Originally posted at That's What I'm Talking About
Review copy provided by publisher.

There All Along is a two-story anthology based on finding love that was “there all along.” Both stories are set in alternative/futuristic worlds; however the first tale, “Land's End” by Lauren Dane, reads more like western frontier than science fiction. On the other hand, “By the Sea of Sand” by Megan Hart has a distinct sci-fi romance edge. Both stories are entertaining and enjoyable. I’ve never read either author, and this stand-alone anthology has whet my appetite for more from both writers.

“Land's End” by Lauren Dane
The Land's End Highway is a dangerous route riddled with vicious brigands, but it is the only way to travel from Garrison to Garrison. The only people on the road, other than the occasional private citizen, are the law men employed to keep the peace and help transport shipments and supplies from town to town. Loyal is one such law man.

Verity is a widowed shop keeper in Silver Cliffs who has caught the eye of Loyal. When the story begins, the pair already share a mutual attraction, but nothing has ever happened because Loyal knows Verity is someone much more than a passing need and good time. 

I am a sucker for this type of story - mutual, yet unfulfilled attraction that builds until BAM, they give into their desires. The opening scenes, including one featuring Verity alone in the bathtub, exude incredible sexual tension. I absolutely love how much they want each other, but don't give in. Each scene progresses until the flame is smoldering and the passion between the pair ignites. I throughly enjoyed every scene this pair had together.

I also admire that both characters are strong, but not pig-headed or stubborn. After Verity presses Loyal into their first kiss and he walks away, she’s not saddened or discouraged. Instead she knows it's only the first step to winning over her man. At moments my heart did break for the both Verity and Loyal. Ms. Dane expertly wrote the characters so that the reader is able to experience both individual’s pain and frustration over their situation.

Meanwhile, adding to the tension is the likeliness of danger from the brigands. The juxtaposition of the impending raid with Verity and Loyal’s mutual desire adds passion to the story. Knowing that their brief time together may be all they get, and that it will never be enough; it's powerful. I adore Loyal's open and blunt talk of what he wants, how he needs Verity. And I appreciate that the skirmishes and brigands were secondary to the true conflict, which was how to make their relationship work.

Summary: Verity and Loyal have a draw to one another that pulled me in and made me smile. Lovely romance. Rating: A-

“By the Sea of Sand” by Megan Hart

Teila and her young son Stephin live by the Sea of Sand maintaining a lighthouse which doubles as a sanctuary for injured soldiers to convalesce from mental anguish. Teila lost her own husband to the war between the Sheirran Defense Forces and the Wirtheran hive, yet she spends her days and nights caring for the soldiers her father-in-law (who is the highest ranking commander in the SDF) brings her. However, her latest patient may put her over the edge: a high-ranking officer with amnesia, violent nightmares, with the high possibility that his mind has been corrupted by the Wirtheran hive.

As soon as he begins to wake, Jodah craves Teila - taking her as if she were just a dream; also fearful it is only a method of mind-control the Witheran use to break their prisoners. However, Jodah learns soon enough that he is finally free, and I enjoyed watching him slowly recover and get his feet back under him. Even with the amnesia, he is able to become a functioning member of the lighthouse community. There is also a “I did NOT see this coming” type of twist that occurs early on, changing the feel and intensity of the story and impacting how Teila assists Jodah on his path to recovery. This created some intense and frustrating moments, leaving me almost mournful over the situation. The pair have good chemistry, but it is clouded because of Jodah’s lack of memories.

The story also touches on the on-going battles. Having just read Ender’s Game recently, I felt there were a few echoes of that story. The story addresses some of the political ramifications of the war and what is happening to its soldiers. This aspect adds to the overall melancholy mood of the tale. Watching the degradation of some of the lighthouse guests brought me down and left me wondering if a romance between Jodah and Teila could be lasting.

Summary: Jodah and Teila create a compelling story, yet the underlying sadness of the story and the message of future despair left me uneasy. Rating: B

Title: There all Along

Land's End by Lauren Dane
By the Sea of Sand by Megan Hart
Genre: Futuristic

Bestselling authors Lauren Dane and Megan Hart deliver two stories of longing, lust, and love in futuristic worlds where love comes first—then survival...

“Land’s End” by Lauren Dane…The Land’s End highway is one of the most dangerous places in the universe. The constant peril of brigands keeps Verity Coleman stuck in Silver Cliffs, dreaming of the open road—and of Loyal Alsbaugh, the tall and silent highway patrolman. When her town is attacked, Verity has a chance to win over Loyal’s muted heart. But will his wounded past make him leave her along the road, or can she convince him to take her along?

“By the Sea of Sand” by Megan Hart…Captain Kason Reed was willing to give his life to the Sheirran Defense Forces, but now he can’t remember anything but bits and pieces of the war. When his sexual attraction to his caregiver, Teila, causes him to make advances toward her, she becomes the aggressor, urging him with her body to explore the memories of his past—memories that all seem to draw him back to Teila…

Thoughts: I'm a huge fan of both Lauren Dane and Megan Hart. I love their writing styles and their characters. I'm a very picky about my futuristic and sci-fi books. I blame this on growing up watching Star Trek and Star Wars. That being said I enjoyed both of these books.

In Lands End by Lauren Dane we meet Verity and Loyal, two people who want more than they have. For years Verity suffered at the hands of her husband, and when he died she was given the freedom to live the way she wanted a life without fear. Now she only wants two things, to leave Lands End and to have Loyal in her bed.

For years Loyal has traveled the Highway protecting the settlements and the shipments on the road. But for the last couple of years he has looked forward to the stop at Lands End and to staying in Verity's spare room. She has become his safe place.

The story between Verity and Loyal is one that could happen in any time frame, but really works in this world Dane has created. As Verity and Loyal finally act on their feelings for each other and figure out how to proceed in the tumultuous world they live in. T hey have to contend with a separation as Loyal needs permission for Verity to travel with him, the anger and disapproval of Verity's family. But the one thing they have going for each other is that they love each other and have faith that everything will work out.

Dane has yet to disappoint me when it comes to her writing and love stories. This one is another that will transport you to a new place, and believe it is completely real.

By the Sea of Sand is probably my favorite of Megan Hart's love stories. It's at times heart breaking and yet gives you faith everything will work out the way it's supposed to.

Teila is a woman who has survived everything the universe has thrown at her, but she isn't sure she can survive the task her father in law has asked of her. To help the soldier who has just been recovered from their universes biggest enemy. It takes everything in her to not scream at him no. But this soldier is more than just a soldier he's someone important.

For Kason he isn't sure what is real and what is a figment of his imagination. The only thing he knows for sure is that the woman caring for him knows more about him than she's letting on. She wants him to remember on his own for some reason.

One of the things Hart does best is wring every single emotion from you as a reader and also from her characters. This is the case with Teila and Kason and the more you get to know them and discover their story the more you want him to remember who he is, not just for him but also for Teila and her young son.

Grade A

4.0 out of 5 stars LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of There All Along 16 Jun. 2014
By LITERAL ADDICTION - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Alluring Angel - Kathy:
*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

--Actual rating 4.5 Skulls

There All Along is two novellas by Lauren Dane & Megan Hart. Lauren Dane’s offering titled Land’s End is the story of Loyal, a lawman and Verity, a widow who runs the settlement’s mercantile. The setting is in a world where rapists and murderers run rampant in the areas surrounding various outposts. The only way that supplies and mail can get from place to place is by armed escort. Loyal is constantly on the move with shipment deliveries, but he is always drawn back to Verity. Verity dreams of seeing other places, experiencing new things. The chemistry between these two is strong, but Loyal doesn’t think he is a good enough man for Verity. But she thinks he is wrong. This is a sweet love story with hot sexual steam.

By The Sea Of Sand, written by Megan Hart is set in a harsh world where survival is a hard fought battle. Kason Reed is taken prisoner by off world enemies, tortured and experimented on. When he finally returns home, he is put under the care of Teila. Teila, the light keeper at the edge of the sea of sand, tries to help Kason regain his memory while having to keep a secret from him. A secret that could destroy him. By The Sea Of Sand is a fast paced love story that had me instantly hooked. The heat factor was very high throughout.
