En route to a tropical paradise, overworked and dedicated Aimee Myller is ready to begin her new life. But when the plane defects, the pilot, sexy Tristan Bress, needs to make an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.
With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is their only hope. A slim one that withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, disease, and fangs of beasts.

Forced to fend for themselves, Tristan and Aimee begin to forage for food and shelter. As they fight for survival, they grow closer. Despite knowing he's off limits, Aimee can't deny her attraction to Tristan. 

Tristan knows Aimee is the one woman he can't have. But how can he fight love when she's slowly becoming everything to him? 

*This read is recommended for 18+ due to romance and sex and mature themes.*

    It had a very compelling story and by the end of the book I felt a thought I was living through al of their giggles with them. I was captivated till he feet end and I don’t think I have ever red something that moved me so much in my life.

    I must confess, at the beginning I wasn't sure I would be able to look pass the whole cheating thing, but you know what? The book is beautiful anyways. It was nicely written and Aimme and Tristan's romance had me sighing at every page turned. Great work!
