Driven by grief to find a cure
for cancer, Elizabeth DeMarco left Logan Spencer to accept a position on
a research expedition to the Amazon rainforest. Kidnapped by
guerrillas, she was saved by a secret all-female civilization, the last of the ancient Amazons. But Elizabeth discovers she's traded one form of
captivity for another.
never stopped searching for Elizabeth. While consulting in the remote Brazilian interior near where she was kidnapped, Logan suffers what should be a fatal fall. Near death, he's collected by the Amazons and magically healed. Elizabeth is the first person he sees as he wakes. But
there's no time for a joyful reunion. The Amazons' mystical medicine is rapidly changing Logan. They want his DNA and plan to take it—and then
kill him. Logan and Elizabeth must escape before dawn or Logan—and their
second chance at happiness—is doomed.
This story is action packed from the very beginning. It opens with Elizabeth being hustled through the jungle where she was abducted. Soon after making camp the captors are attacked by the Amazons. A tribe of woman that have a deep connection to the land they protect. In trade for letting Elizabeth live they start to use her to find a cure for a disease that is plaguing their tribe.
Soon enters our hero Logan. For the last two years Logan has searched and searched for the woman that he let walk out of his door. After coming across a pile of bodies in the jungle, he gets chased away from the site. While escaping he falls off a cliff, where the Amazons rescue him. He is immediately brought to Elizabeth, who had given up any hope of ever seeing him again.
The chemistry between the characters is instantaneous and blazing. Soon they realize that they have one shot to escape or its the end for them both.
I really enjoyed this novella. It was a great quick read. Full of action and never a dull moment. I can't wait for the rest of the series to be released.
