He wanted her hungry- hot and wild, burning with desire for him. She wanted him forever.

All her young life Lora Harding had dreamed of a man whose touch would teach her passion. Then suddenly, on a Mexican vacation, there he was...in her car...holding a gun to her head! The most attractive man she had ever laid eyes on was kidnapping her!

He called himself Max. A soldier of fortune, dark eyed and fierce looking, he was a man on the run, forcing Lora to help his outlawed rescue missions. Lora was both terrified and entranced by his presence. But in a lush jungle hideout high in the mountains, her fear melted into liquid fire when her captor crushes her creamy curve to his body with iron-hard arms, claimed the honey-sweetness of her lips, and tormented her with the sweet promise of ecstasy- and total surrender...

When I read that the copyright date of this book was 1986, I had an inkling of what to expect, and I was right. This book is typical 80's escapist fare, complete with an over-the-top plot, a nasty hero (at least he started out that way), and a doormat heroine ready to swoon in the hero's arms whenever he'd so much as look at her. Still, I enjoyed this book to a certain degree as a guilty pleasure. The writing wasn't that bad, and the hero did improve over time. It would have gotten a much higher grade from me had the hero done some major grovelling at the end.

This is a fun and adventurous book! At first I thought that I wouldn't like it because the hero was really a jerk (which is an understatement) in the beginning, but he got better and wasn't quite so gruff. For such an unlikely event, I thought Lora grew realistically in the book and was a great heroine. This book kind of reminded me of Romancing of the Stone in some ways, though it was way different. Very good read if you want some action with your romance.
