In PRIMITIVE NIGHTS, Myla Jordan has come to Peru to be
with lover and friend John Harris who is working with
Endurance International, a humanitarian group working to
stop the damage the uncaring companies are doing to the
forest and tribal people. John went missing a year earlier
and is believed dead. She stays to continue the work he had
been doing and now is undercover with InterCorp but on a
helicopter trip over the jungle her copter crashes. She
will come to realize that it is possible that the damning
information she has retrieved may not have been done as
secretly as she thought. But at the moment she has more
pressing things to think about. She survives the crash but
is captured by one of the tribes she is trying to save. At
first she is frightened near to death but when she looks up
into a pair of green eyes she somehow feels better. Tarzan
wouldn't hurt her. It's possible that reaction is caused
by the drug he gave her, but even when that wears off, she
still feels an amazing attraction to this man. She needs to
get him to believe that she is really one of the good guys
who wants to help his people.
Damon Hanson is half white but the leader of his father's
people and has the job of figuring out what to do with the
white woman wearing the enemies' emblem. He knows what he
wants to do with this beautiful woman, but must think of
his people and their fight for their way of life. As he
listens with his heart he realizes that Myla is one of the
good guys and will listen to the plans E.I. has to save the
To Myla's horror she finds out that some people she trusted
and even loved aren't what she thought they were. Unable to
trust anyone she used to work with, she must rely on her
growing love for Damon to right the wrongs that are coming
their way. In the chaos of saving his people she sees she
cannot go back to what was but can she face living her life
in the primitive way he has always lived?
PRIMITIVE NIGHTS is a fast paced romance that highlights
the trouble with oil companies exploiting the land as well
as loggers deforestation taking home from primitive tribes
who have lived in the Peruvian jungle for centuries. I
enjoyed the author's descriptive wording that made you feel
the humidity of the jungle, the danger around you yet also
the amazing beauty of the untouched lands. Romance lovers
will not be disappointed in Myla and Damon's story, because
of course the jungle wasn't all that was steamy. I look
forward to more steamy offerings from this author.
As a member of Endurance International, Myla Jordan seeks
to stop the illegal logging, diseases and displacement that
threaten primitive South American tribes. While posing
undercover as an engineer for one of the biggest industrial
culprits—InterCorp—her helicopter crashes, stranding her in
the Peruvian jungle. Captured and dragged before a tribal
leader, she’s shocked by his light skin, green eyes,
perfect English—and her body’s instant reaction to his
The woman wearing an InterCorp insignia—yet protesting her
innocence—is a direct threat to Damon Hanson’s people, yet
he can’t bring himself to let her be killed. Raised in the
tribe, taught the ways of the outsiders by his English
mother, he knows of only one way to protect the foolish
woman. Toss her over his shoulder, declare she is his…and
somehow resist the temptation she presents.
Their powerful attraction gradually—sometimes painfully—
overcomes suspicion. Yet even as their love grows as fast
and wild as the rainforest, it may not be enough to
overcome the common enemy that seeks to destroy them all.
