A nightmarish encounter can lead to true love.

Fresh out of school, Angela is feeling pretty good about landing her first job in research journaling. Not only is it a great way to get noticed, but it's in an exotic wonderland. What could be better? Unfortunately she did not anticipate the hardships that hiking through the jungle would produce. Now she is stuck following these scientists with no way out unless some dire emergency prompts them to call for help.

Praying for something to happen so that she could go back to her civilized home, she is horrified when the first real emergency becomes deadly. While the rest of her crew was brutally murdered, Angela was saved by a Wildman who may be more than he seems. Their only hope of survival is to depend on each other and stand their ground against the monstrous beasts that stalk their every move.

The setting for this story is perfectly matched since the Andean forests are both exquisitely beautiful, but deadly to anyone who goes there. The imagery was great and really helped to set the mood of the story. The author's descriptions really pulled me into the story.

The way this story was set up made sure I was constantly on the edge of my seat in terror and excitement. This story really captured my imagination and I would love to read more from this author. The only real problem I had with it is that it was too short and I would have loved to learn more about Angela and Jason.

Angela was a very realistic character and I could understand her actions in the story. I probably would have reacted the same way given the circumstances. I was happy that she found the strength to fight even when it seemed like all hope was lost. It was very courageous of her.

I liked how the author wrote Jason. He does not talk much at all throughout the entire book, but through his actions and the few words he did use, I was able to get to know him. Having a character use mostly body language to communicate was very interesting and I think a real success with this story.

I would recommend this to anyone interested in a thriller romance.
