From the start, Kerry Bishop anticipated danger: She expected unimaginable fear. In a terrifying race to save nine children, she prepared for the fight of her life. But she wasn’t prepared for a passion almost as dangerous as the mission she had undertaken. At the first, Linc O’Neil appeared to be exactly the kind of man Kerry needed: strong, ruthless and definitely too drunk to care about helping her steal a truck to get past the guards. Then she discovered her mistake. Linc was not a hardened mercenary; the heavy gear he carried was not guns but cameras. She had hijacked a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist. Now he was their last hope. Dependent on a stranger, Kerry refused to let unexpected desire complicate their mission. If Linc had the mistaken impression that she was a woman of the church, she was not about to correct him. Certainly, it kept him at arm’s length, which was just where she wanted this man who, despite his bad attitude and constant stream of threats, was their one chance for survival through fifty miles of treacherous jungle. And survival was all they could think about. But if they succeeded, what then? Could Kerry tell him the truth: that she was no more a woman sworn to chastity than she was immune to the powerful effect he had on her? That she desired him more and more? If freedom came, would they be free to love?

Blue Moon Reviews
Pretty good blast from the past consistent with what was popular in category romance in 1987. I enjoyed dashing photojournalist Linc and feisty (in a 1987 kind of way) do-gooder Kerry as they rescued a band of orphans from a war zone. The fun died down in the second half after they're safe in America and their adventure is over. As is typical in popular category romance from 1987, Linc does something really, really mean and then swears he'll never hurt her again. High marks for the grovel.
Very nicely narrated by Renee Raudman.
I had trouble turning it off!
Fabulous book, Sandra Brown always makes you fall in love with her characters!
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Books outside HOT genre = books given to me to review
When Linc chases (in a truck) Kerry (on her horse) down and the 'activity' that follows...the miscommunication - cannot reveal more without spoiling.
Any, she is fantastic! Perhaps Linc if I HAD to choose.
Great believable plot. Lots of action, suspense and romance...perfect amount of each!
I'm stingy with my stars-so this one is a big deal.
Some strong language and adult themes/situations.
