I simply loved this book! I read it in 5 hours and could NOT put it down! I read the trilogy backwards, I started with DREAM MOUNTAIN, which is the second book and I should've started with this one, PARADISE ISLAND. Either way you read them, they make sense and I cannot wait for the third book to come out in March, SUN VALLEY.
~Fame is the furthest thing from Luke's mind. He has secluded himself on his own private island to work on a secret project that the whole world wants. He is a reknowned marine archaelogist and much sought after in the press for being devilishly handsome and extremely smart. His island, Paradise Island, not many know about, its not even on most maps, this is why he is so shocked when a raft washes ashore with a barey dressed woman inside! Who in the world is she? Is she another of the hoards of women who try endlessly to seduce him for publcity?
Who is she? She can't even remember that much. She must have amnesia. Why is she washed ashore in some raft wearing close to nothing? Why does she feel this deep down sense of dread and fear? Someone is trying to kill her...why? Why can't she remember? And why is this handsome guy that has found her think she is some groupie out to seduce him? Maybe he is some maniac hermit! Maybe he is the person she is running from!
Luke soon names her Jade, after the ring she is wearing. Luke does't trust her, but he is hopelessly attracted to her. Maybe she isn't lying. Maybe she IS some amnesiac...but who cant be sure? He can't take any chances with the information he has. He needs to safeguard his project.
In a world of corruptness and greed, Jade must remember who she is and why she is being hunted or she will die. Can she trust Luke? Was he somehow involved in her nightmare? Would her falling in love with him effect this whole mess?
This is one action-packed romance with twists that leave you turning the pages rapidly for more! I rarely find a romance that has action and twists that I find so absorbing that I can't put it down, but this is one of them, including the second to this trilogy, DREAM MOUNTAIN. Gena Hale is a new author to the romance genre and I think she has made an impression that will launch her into success quickly! She is also known as Sheila Veihl in another genre.
