Fala has joined an archeological dig on a nearby continent.  She meets one of the leaders of the dig, the attractive Jahesh, and they are instantly attracted.  She also meets a strange woman who gives her a fertility statue.  Will Fala gain her greatest desires—a child and love?

Fertile Ground was an interesting futuristic tale.  Although it stands alone quite well, the beginning definitely had me wondering about the first book in the series, as some of the characters from the first book showed up at the beginning of this one.  Once Fala and Jahesh left for the archaeological dig, however, the story was all about them.  I enjoyed the coming together of these two very different characters.  The sex scenes were very well written, and Fala’s desire for a child came across strongly.  The only thing that marred my enjoyment of this one was the thin back-story and characterization of Fala and Jahesh.  I wanted to know much more about them, especially Jahesh, whose briefly mentioned war service would have been intriguing to learn about.  Overall, Fertile Ground is a quick, pleasant read for any futuristic fan.

*Although this book stands alone, it is part of a series.*
