As the plane neared Martinique, Heather Northcutt wondered why her cousin had sent for her. Heather was just a bookkeeper, a plain, ordinary English girl, even though the dark, sophisticated stranger on the plane stared at her as if he thought otherwise. Then, shocked, she learned he was more than a stranger -- he was Garth Deveraux, the half-brother her cousin's husband had never mentioned -- and half owner of the plantation that was the cause of a struggle between the two Deveraux men.
But Cousin Elaine soon warned Heather about Garth. When Alana duPier returned from Switzerland, he would marry her and run her family's estate. So Heather was determined not to fall for his lean, powerful presence and suave charm. Heather's feelings were as dangerous as the seductive beauty of the island itself. She would discover all its hidden snares for the heart -- and her path out of its entangling jungle would be the biggest surprise of all.
