Ruth Owen weaves an irresistible story of unexpected passion in the steamy heat of an island paradise.
Dr. Noel Revere knows she's asking for trouble when she volunteers to shepherd two very precious—and very secret—pieces of cargo through the heart of an unspoiled rainforest. The mission is vital to her employer, and there are more than a few superstitious natives who would rather keep her out of their sacred lands. What she doesn't count on is her guide: a rude, rugged, and yes, ripped former soldier who intends to make her life difficult—something that seems to come to him quite easily. So how can a man this dangerous make her feel so safe?
Sam Donovan is hiding here on this isolated island—avoiding the past, avoiding the rules, maybe even avoiding life altogether. Then he's thrown for a loop: Why on earth is Noel—sorry, Dr. Revere—so damn irresistible to him? Proper, sophisticated, stubborn, she represents every area where he went wrong before. And yet for this woman, he'll do anything to make things right, even if it means risking life and limb to win her trust . . . and possibly, her heart.
