Jake Decker is an ex-pat American and former army ranger, making a living as a guide for academics. He’s alone in the world and determined to stay that way. His chosen profession doesn’t require emotional commitment or long-term responsibility, but he realizes from the start that taking on Cate will be a different matter. She’s independent, unpredictable, and has the guts of a warrior. Despite his better judgment, he finds her admirable, and worse, hotter than the steamy jungle they’re trekking through.
As Cate and Jake make their journey, they begin to realize there might be more to her brother’s death than they know. They must fight their way past thieves, murderers and their growing attraction to each other. Cate’s determined to find her brother and learn the truth, and with Jake sticking by her side, they’re unstoppable.
