The life of a paid mercenary makes sense to Special Forces
Officer Winslow Grange. The jungles of South America may
make his former job as a ranch manager for his friend Jay
Pendleton look like a cakewalk, but it’s nothing that the
ex-Green Beret can’t handle.

and all the complications being attracted to the daughter of
his foreman would entail. Now Grange will need all his
training to help General Emilio Machado gain control of the
tiny South American nation of Barrera; when Peg arrives
unannounced, she’s a distraction he can’t avoid. She’s
determined to show Grange she can be useful on and off the
battlefield. Once she breaks through his armor, traversing
the wilds of the Amazon will prove an easier task than
defending himself against her winning charms….
