Action, violence, visions and love slipping up on two characters that have been fleshed out well and show intelligence! I thought more than once...deja vu....the movie: 'Romancing the Stone' with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner.

Annie Parrish and Will Sanchez Travers each hold at least one doctorate. You meet them in the rain forest in Brazil at the beginning of the story. She needs his help to locate something special and she is not above telling stories, stealing and whatever else is necessary to find it. Will learns quickly that this is the woman for him but he has enough of his own demons and there are plenty of people that want them both dead. They are followed by some mysterious soldiers, corrupt policemen, and other shady characters. Think Star Wars and a look-alike for Jabba the Hut only with razor-sharp teeth.

You feel the humidity drenching their clothes, the excessive heat that causes things to stick to the skin, and the fear as they face evil. There is pouring rain, snakes and unknown creatures living in the river. You also experience the tension and mutual attraction they have for each other and there are enough differences between Romancing the Stone and River of Eden to enjoy both.

If you like a romantic adventure then this is the book for you. It is a keeper. Enjoy!

Thank you, Lyuda. And yes, in answer to your question. I am not a big fan of SWs but I had no problem reading (and loving) this romance. I can't believe you have never read this story. :D
