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…?
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!**
