Book #1 in the Rescues series (1986)
A romance in the jungle – Grant Sullivan, tough, masculine and handsome, is a retired military expert entrusted with a mission in the Costa Rican jungle – to find hostage and socialite Jane Hamilton Greer.

Only one thing is certain: when Grant finds Jane, questions of guilt and innocence begin to fade against the undeniable attraction between this fiery couple…
