They needed no words between them…
The man has no identity, no past and the mind of a genius packaged in rippling muscles and sun-seared skin. It was Dr. Elizabeth Holden’s job to uncover the mystery of this man, who seemed to speak only the language of the flesh.

His blatant masculinity frightened and excited her all at once. But his savage facade hid a vulnerability only she had glimpsed. And like an animal forging through the deepest…darkest…densest woods, Elizabeth longed to give in to her primitive, unexplored desires. But was she ready to shed her inhibitions and let the real woman within her run wild…?

4 Stars!

Leave it up to Anne Stuart to write a book like this. I wonder if she spends time thinking “What’s the most unlikely of heroes?” , and then sets out to make that person just that…a hero.

This time, it’s “Tarzan!”….and it works. What I really liked was the humor. Stuart’s humor catches you off guard at times because it is so unexpected in the backdrop of her “dark” story-lines. In this one, Libby is a scientist hired to “study” this “wild man”. She feels sorry for him, let’s him go,…and he carries her off into the jungle like a sack of potatoes! She TALKS INCESSANTLY…prattling on and on until she realizes what reality is…then she SHUTS UP and won’t talk to him at all!

The love story is a bit rushed, but what can you expect in 250 pages! I loved it and recommend it!

**This book has been recently re-released with a brand new cover, an oldie but goodie for sure!**


About Anne Stuart

Anne Stuart is a grandmaster of the genre, winner of Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, survivor of more than thirty-five years in the romance business, and still just keeps getting better.

Her first novel was Barrett’s Hill, a gothic romance published by Ballantine in 1974 when Anne had just turned 25. Since then she’s written more gothics, regencies, romantic suspense, romantic adventure, series romance, suspense, historical romance, paranormal and mainstream contemporary romance for publishers such as Doubleday, Harlequin, Silhouette, Avon, Zebra, St. Martins Press, Berkley, Dell, Pocket Books and Fawcett.

She’s won numerous awards, appeared on most bestseller lists, and speaks all over the country. Her general outrageousness has gotten her on Entertainment Tonight, as well as in Vogue, People, USA Today, Women’s Day and countless other national newspapers and magazines.

When she’s not traveling, she’s at home in Northern Vermont with her luscious husband of forty years, an empty nest, five sewing machines, and when she’s not working she’s watching movies, listening to rock and roll(preferably Japanese) and spending far too much time quilting and making doll clothes because she has no intention of ever growing up..
