New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Dane takes you into a brand new world in ALL THAT REMAINS.

Summer Killian falls fast and hard when Charlie arrives in Paradise Village. But the heat turns all the way up when she learns Charlie is also with Hatch -- the man she loved four years before. While she's not sure she's cut out for a triad, neither man is going to give her up.

Dear Reader,
Metamorphosis is a brand new series I'll be self publishing.

The first entry is ALL THAT REMAINS featuring Summer, Charlie and Hatch which appeared in the MARKED print anthology.

While the series is an earth set post plague futuristic, it is not a dystopian future. What we knew has metamorphosed into the new normal. Different yes, but still good in its own way. Four hundred years ago the Parkington-Bay virus infected and killed ninety percent of the humans on the face of the earth. The two generations that followed were lost to the chaos of waves more of contagion from all the dead from Park-B and the breakdown and marked change in basic human culture. In the following years, climate change rendered large swaths of the planet inhospitable, further changing culture and populations as humans changed not only how they lived, but where they lived as ocean levels rose along with temperatures. In the early days of Park-B, people would leave the population centers thinking to avoid the illness. They took to the roads in RVs and campers and the imprint of what would later become a caravan lifestyle began as successive generations took to the roads to earn a living with itinerant and migrant labor in the various food production centers, on construction crews, energy farms and the like. But it's not all caravans. There are still cities, though far fewer and with much smaller populations. And outside the cities there are villages, permanent population centers with a flow of migrant labor, usually to harvest crops of all types. ALL THAT REMAINS is set in such a place called Paradise Village. High up in the mountains, it's warm enough to support orchards and all sorts of year round crops people come and go to process and then send out to Portland and some of the remaining cities on the west coast.

More than the physical and environmental changes, the shape and form of relationships has changed drastically. Not only are there less people, fertility rates are also very low with female births a scant percentage overall. Over four centuries this has created a culture that values and respects women with near reverence. It also means triads and quads are far more commonplace than a dyad (or two person relationship). The Metamorphosis books are intensely erotic books. Some with very unconventional relationships, but all will be romances.

About the Author

The story goes like this: While on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time so her husband took her comments about “giving that writing thing a serious go” to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.

Today Lauren is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over sixty novels and novellas across several genres.

I' m adicted to Lauren Dane's Brown family (et al) and Chase Brothers/Petal series. This one was not up to par. Hopefully the next in the series will have more story and less blatant sex. I could see occasional hints that she could turn this into a good storyline.

The book was well written but the story was somewhat monotone. I enjoy her books that have action in them. This didnt. The males did not have strong personalities, neither did summer. I found myself waiting for the book to end. I love lauren, but not this book. I was eager to read this after seeing her description of this new series, but the world this is set in never fleshed out.

Really enjoyed the Hurleys, love the Petal/Chase series, and completely love the Goddess books. This was yet another menage/triad book. No moral issue,but she repeats it continuously.
