She has been there a since she was twelve and he just recently washed ashore after his ship sank. Elaine's only friend has been a panther until now, can she learn to trust Henry.

Jungle Eyes is the first book in the Stranded in Paradise trilogy by Lindsay Marie Miller. It is an action adventure/ historical romance- with danger, drama, and angst. A shipwreck/castaway story set on an exotic deserted island. After a bit of a slow start, the story lured me in and I couldn’t put it down.
Henry Rochester is a 25-year-old aristocrat, who is tired of his mother’s constant meddling and trying to marry him off, so he joins his best friend on an seafaring expedition, setting

Jungle Eyes: An Action Adventure Romance (Stranded in Paradise Book 1) by Lindsay Marie Miller is the first book in her Stranded in Paradise series. This is not my first book by this author, I found it to be creative, engaging and enjoyable like the rest of her stories. Her details and plot are creative and engaging. Her characters are both connectable and true to life. This story takes place in the 19th century and it was easy to follow. Her writing style is easy flowing and I had no problem ke ...more

Two people stranded on an island. That has a lot of potential. But unfortunately I didn't see much depth in this. The story was little slow pace. But it definitely is not a bad story.
I especially liked the Jade element. The title of the book is actually related to her. And that's what makes this book a special.

Note: I received a free e-copy of the book via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. Special thanks to the author and publisher for giving me a chance to read it.

Wealthy New Yorker Henry Rochester, fleeing his mother’s matchmaking efforts, boards a ship with a friend and thus embarks on what is supposed to be a one-year adventure sailing across the Atlantic. Instead, his ship sinks, killing everyone on board except for Henry. Improbably, Henry washes ashore on a deserted island inhabited by a young woman named Elaine, who washed ashore herself years prior after a ...more

In 1899, Henry Rochester (25, British royalty) boards a ship in N.Y. Harbor (Manhattan) & sets sail across the Atlantic.

There are 26 others aboard the vessel.
Charles Gallagher (29, BMF) would also go along.
The voyage was now going on 3 months.
Shipwrecked Henry was the only 1 to survive.
He was badly injured & Elaine Carmichael (21) was attending to him.
Her family had been shipwrecked & she was the only 1 to survive in her family out of 5.

Book 1 in the Jungle Eyes Trilogy

What an enjoyable read. It's a period romance set on an island in the middle of no where. I loved how the story drew me in and kept me entertained from beginning to end.

The characters of Henry and Elaina were enjoyable engaging and brought a range of emotions to the reader (me). Elaina is strong and resourceful as shown by the fact she has survived so long alone on the island.

A great read, I read it in a day. If you love period pieces, pirates, relationships w

Jungle Eyes is book one in a historical romance trilogy by Lindsay Marie Miller. I have read Lindsay’s books before and went into this with an open mind even if I don’t usually enjoy the historical romances, mainly because I enjoy the way that Lindsay writes her characters and plots. I will say I was pleasantly surprised that this was a fast-paced book for the most part. The reason I went with four stars though would be because I just felt like the plot of this story could use a little work. It ...more

Jungle Eyes by Lindsay Marie Miller is the first book in her new Action packed Adventure Romance series, Stranded in Paradise, and let me say she does not disappoint yet again. Following the story of Henry and Elaine, who just happened to come together due to a shipwreck and a deserted island. The year is 1899, and while this was placed as a historical read Miller did a great job of keeping the characters in the time period while allowing some fantasy to take the reader on a journey to that same ...more

Jungle Eyes is the first book in the Stranded in Paradise series. The main story wraps up nicely, but if you read the epilogue, it ends in a cliffhanger.

At first, I found the relationship between Henry and Elaine annoying. It seemed a bit dysfunctional and they were really struggling to communicate. But, when you consider their circumstances, I suppose it warranted a bit of cautiousness and there would have been the need to build trust.

In an effort to escape his overbearing mother, Henry has tak

This story is an interesting adventure. The time is the late 1800’s and times call for mothers to marry off their children, hoping for happiness, wealth and maybe even love. Henry’s mother is the epitome of all mothers from that time. Henry, however, is not interested in marriage or even listening to his mother talk on and on about the young girls all over town. Henry’s friend, Charlie, has enlisted to join a group of men for an adventure overseas. Little do they know the fate that awaits them. ...more

I think the one thing I love about this book is the uniqueness of the storyline. I love that it was set in the past as historical romance stories are my favourite and I liked the twist of the setting. This author certainly knows how to send you on an action adventure with her writing. I really liked the characters, I thought that Elaine was a really strong female lead and I do have a bit of a soft spot for Henry! Whilst there was some kind of chemistry be

Jungle Eyes: An Action Adventure Romance (Stranded in Paradise Book 1) by Lindsay Marie Miller is the first book in her Stranded in Paradise series. The story follows sexy, young Henry and his quest to escape his nagging mother, by boarding an exploration ship, across the Atlantic. But of course mother nature is but a fangirl at heart, and strands Henry on a “deserted island”. I use strong sarcasm here, as this wouldn’t be a steamy romance novel, if the island had been deserted. On the Island he ...more

Jungle Eyes is book one in the Stranded in Paradise series by Lindsay Marie Miller. This is a historical romance filled with dramatic flair. I have not read a story quite like this for a long time. It was a refreshing change form what I currently find myself reading.

Jungle Eyes started out steadily and the way it was written made it an easy yet action filled drama. Henry found himself marooned on an island. It is there he meets Elaine. After several tense situations, they begin to fall in love.
