After landing in the Caribbean island of St Lucia on business, account executive Penelope Albright is shockingly accused of smuggling drugs—until a sexy stranger claims to be her husband and kidnaps her. Trouble and Charlie Smith are two sides of the same coin. He needs a wife—temporarily—to help him keep a low profile while investigating the disappearance of his business partner. And like it or not, elegant Penny is convenient, if way too upscale for Charlie’s tastes.
Like the island’s legendary volcano, their primal attraction is a force of nature. The lush setting should be a haven for lovers, not killers. But the sultry heat hides a peril they can’t anticipate. Can they fight their way out of the jungle that is their past and live to see the future?
“Exotic locales and dangerous skullduggery highlights this delightfully adventurous tale. Patricia Rice just keeps getting better and better.” Jill Smith, Romantic Times
