Everything changes when Trevor Mandeville arrives on the island seeking the perfect orchid for Her Majesty, Queen Victoria. He realizes that Joya is the lost twin of his adopted sister. Joya accompanies Trevor back to England where she is joyfully united with her sibling. Joya falls in love with Trevor. However, he is a stickler to convention, but the only conventions she knows are African not English. Unless love finds a way, this culture-crossed duo is doomed to a lifetime of unhappiness.
Jill Marie Landis paints two wonderful landscapes as a part of mid nineteenth century Africa and England vividly come to life in THE ORCHID HUNTER. The entertaining and often humorous story line features two notable lead characters, but clearly the tale belongs to the joyous Joya whose uninhibited nature takes Victorian London by storm, sending the "White Man's Burden" into clear disarray. The secondary romance starring Joya's sister adds to the overall fun. Ms. Landis has scripted a sensual storyline filled with vibrancy. This author creates some of the best historical romance writers' on the market today.
