A romance in the jungle - Grant Sullivan, tough, masculine and handsome, is a retired military expert entrusted with a mission in the Costa Rican jungle - to find hostage and socialite Jane Hamilton Greer. When Grant rescues her in a rather cavalier and physical fashion, no love is lost between them. But gradually, their mutual attraction and passion becomes apparent and the jungle smolders in more ways than one.

Would you try another book from Linda Howard and/or Brenda Sweeney?

Linda Howard is a dependable, quality author so I would try another audiobook written by her. Brenda Sweeney totally missed the mark with her portrayal of Jane, both in tone (she sounds like a breathy airhead, not the capable strong willed character the author wrote), and performance, which sometimes sounded like she was reading a telephone book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Midnight Rainbow?

When Jane and Grant first became sexually aware of each other in the jungle.

Would you be willing to try another one of Brenda Sweeney’s performances?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Midnight Rainbow?

Nothing needs to be cut.

Any additional comments?

Good story, totally ruined by the narration. Usually I read a good book and think "I have to hear this performed", with THIS book (which I haven't read yet), I thought "I know I'd enjoy this more if I was reading the book."
