Booklist Review

Allie Parker is devastated by the death of her best friend in an explosion on a company-owned yacht, and she's convinced foul play is involved. Determined to find evidence in support of her theory, she slips aboard a second company yacht. Stunned to hear people coming aboard, she decides to hide until they leave, but soon finds herself in real danger as the yacht departs the harbor and heads out into the open sea. Jake Dawson is in charge of a menacing crew and the illegal cargo they're transporting to Belize, and the simmering mistrust among the outlaws is further heightened when Allie is discovered aboard. Jake claims her as his own to protect her, then feels compelled to confide in her, disclosing his true identity--he's an undercover agent--and his mission. Allie proves her mettle to her savior when, having boarded a cargo plane, they crash in the jungle. Martin, author of the bestseller Heartless [BKL My 1 01] among other popular romances, spins a busy and suspenseful plot in her newest sexy tale. Maria Hatton.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Readers who like their romances and jungles steamy will gobble up the latest contemporary romance from the unfailingly entertaining Martin (The Fire Inside). With two blonde ex-wives in his past and an arsenal of blonde jokes at his fingertips, undercover ATF agent Jake Dawson thinks his luck couldn't get worse when he discovers a pert blonde stowaway in the middle of his sting operation to capture gun-runners. But his unmasking as a fed by one of the bad guys and a subsequent airplane crash into the Mexican jungle quickly prove him wrong. Luckily Allie Parker, who stumbled into Jake's operation while searching for her roommate's murderer, possesses more brains, guts and stamina than he initially gives her credit for, and it's not long before the attraction between the two of them reaches a boiling point. But Jake regards his heart as a lost cause, and Allie has to fight through all his defenses to prove they can have a future together once his mission is complete. Martin's latest offers few surprises to those familiar with the law-enforcement-hunk-meets-kindhearted-modern-gal formula, or any deep emotional tugs, but the story succeeds admirably as a fluffy escapist adventure that is buoyed by frequent doses of hot sex.
