The Outlaw’s Lover is the third installment in James Cox’s erotic “Manlove at the End of the World” series, a series that takes place in a post-apocalyptic America after a deadly virus has diminished the country’s population and left its survivors vulnerable to a now lawless nation, where vigilante justice, zealotry, and sanctimony threaten to bring an end to practical freedoms.
Eighteen months after the virus, Rian Ampledorf is alone, hungry and fighting to fend off the predators and scavengers who do nothing more than take advantage of the new world order, choosing to prey on the seemingly weak and defenseless, becoming the disease for which there is no cure. But Rian is a survivor, a self-described geeky coward who proves that a healthy dose of fear and pragmatism means he’ll live to see another day.
Adopted by members of a new colony that is more cult than community, a place that’s been dubbed Heaven but is more like Hell on Earth, Rian believes for a moment that he’s found a safe haven from a man its citizens call the Outlaw, but soon discovers it’s a place where you either embrace the crazy, drink the Kool-Aid, or you’ll find yourself the sacrificial lamb to the Almighty as penance for being unable and unwilling to be fruitful and multiply.
Enter Drake, the Aussie Outlaw, a man to whom Rian is immediately attracted, but a man Rian isn’t sure he can or should trust; until, that is, Rian witnesses firsthand that the patients are in charge of the asylum; then he must choose survival or surrender, and Drake is the key.
If you’ve read The Last Cowboy and The Three Hour Man, you’ll recognize The Outlaw’s Lover faithfully follows the blueprint for the series—stories of men who love love and lust and sex and manage to go about the business of living after the business of dying has left them lonely and looking for connection.
