When faced with human treachery and the perils of a lost world, two women thrown together in the exotic jungles of New Guinea become reluctant allies and unexpectedly discover that paradise just might be a place in the heart.
Botanist Charlotte Lascelles can’t believe her luck when she is selected for a research expedition into the untamed Foja Mountains of New Guinea. The last thing she expects is to find her team being led deep into the mist-shrouded jungle by a woman who has spent the past decade working as a mercenary soldier for shady characters in Indonesia and East Timor. To make matters worse, Ash Evans’ history with women represents everything Charlotte loathes.
Although friends accuse Charlotte of being uptight, she simply has standards, and they don’t include hooking up with brazen playgirls like Ash. Charlotte can’t wait until they reach camp so she can put the distracting and far too sexy guide out of her sight, but things aren’t going her way. Compelled to share a tent with her nemesis on the journey into the unknown, Charlotte soon finds her determined reserve no match for the fires Ash ignites.
