Tours of the rain forest have never been so naughty. When 23-year-old Emma gets separated from her group, she soon discovers that the danger of the heat or even the wildlife could be the least of her problems. Running across a place where the plants not only come to life, but are in need of a female to keep their species from going extinct, what's a girl to do?
At the age of 21, Alexis never had a boyfriend, and did not so much as kissed a boy. When she begins to chat online with an older man who claims to have fantasies about his daughter, they hit it off because of she is having the same about her stepdad, who raised her since she was two, when her mother died. Fearing that their dark secret will ruin their relations with the people they care about, the two agree to meet up at a masked ball to complete one another's fantasy.
Emma is back, and is now faced with a new and terrifying encounter. Her abductor has her exactly where he wants her, promising to take her back home safely, if she bears the children of the four different species of J'hec, intelligent and somewhat humanoid creatures, in the rain forest. Without the knowledge of the land, and knowing her chances of survival are slim without him, she willingly agrees.
