"A sweet romance of parted lovers." —Asta Idonea, author of Fire Up My Heart
"Far From Home is a steamy, sensual read of two lovers living on different planets who find an innovative, satisfying way to be together. The science is plausible and interesting and something I wouldn't mind giving a try. A thoroughly enjoyable story." —Dianne Hartsock, author of Philip's Watcher
"I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The descriptions of Mars were evocative and the relationship between the characters felt very real. I really enjoyed the virtual reality aspects of this, which had enough practical information on how it worked to satisfy my science fiction craving, while still maintaining a good level of erotic and emotional storytelling. Well done!"—Reader Review
