Don't stop to ask questions, just kick back and ENJOY!! This is one funny book. Maggie Davis aka Katherine Deauxville is a charming lady and a wonderful artist, and both show in the warm and funny tale of 29 year old Dr. Peter Havistock who announces to the world he is a virgin looking for a wife. When he was not yet 15, the plane carrying his parents and him crash land in the jungle of New Guinea. For the next 14 years, he lives with the tribe that rescued him. However, since they deemed him their 'golden god' they would not permit him to marry within their tribe. Also, they had high moral standards, so he is now nearly 30 and a virgin.
He is a profession of anthropology and in on a book tour of college campuses to promote his story and the lives of the tribe that raised him. And he has a very attention catching style that is fanning the flames of press and women alive.
Leslie Wimberly is in charge of handling the book tour. A beautiful 34 year old divorcée, she is finding the Professor a bit more than she can handle. From his G string demonstration of authentic native gab, to defending him from mobs of women, to the announcing he has never been kissed before, leaves her running in circles.
It is fast pasted, funny and absolute laugh out loud riot. Only thing I find fault with is I wish she spent more time between the two main characters instead of Leslie talking about him to everyone else. Peter is so CUTE!!!
So if you need a pick me up...a cheer to your weekend....this is the tonic!!!...

I really, really disliked this book for one main reason, although there were others: was there a hero in it? It's hard to tell. The putative hero, Peter something-or-other features almost as a secondary character. Now I know that when I read the words that an author has put into a male characters' voice or head, that I am not really getting insights into the male pysche - it's a woman writing it, after all. I like the illusion though. It lends balance to a story that otherwise ends up as the neurotic meanderings of some woman we don't know, and can sound so juvenile ("Does he like me? Do I like him? Oh, he must think..." ad nauseum).
If you enjoy reading 20 year old Mills & Boons, then you might enjoy this book. If you like the more modern romance genre, where the hero actually gets a say-so and isn't reduced to merely responding to whatever the girl is doing, except for maybe 10 lines at the end of the book to explain all, I wouldn't bother.
The other thing that turned me off of this book was the heroine, Lesley. She had no spine, a rich little girl working in daddy's Foundation in a position of authority she was patently unable to cope with (or even realistically achieve).
The only thing that ran true about the story was Lesley's dependance on her ex-husband Brent, but then the severing of that tie was abrupt, unexplained and vague - like a decision to quit smoking as you stub out the cigarette - she'd just finished an unsatisfactory call with said ex, and she suddenly realises that she doesn't need him any more - yeah, wait till the next flat tire, and see who the first person you call is, love.
I haven't read any of Ms Deauxville's other books, and won't be, but perhaps I am doing her a dis-service, and her historicals work better. Can't be asked to find out, though.

Leslie Wimberley, Senator's daughter and dedicated member of the Wimberley foundation, is responsible for the tour of Dr Peter Havistock, who has spent 14 years (half his life) living with a Stone-Age tribe in remotest Papua New Guinea and whose dissertation on the subject is now a best seller. Leslie is almost tearing her hair out, however, as the intellectual, academic tour is in a constant uproar by the rather gorgeous anthropologists antics - does Dr Havistock have to appear in a ceremonial g-string? And why did he announce to millions on 'Harry King Live' that he was a virgin! Now Leslie has to deal not only with her own uncomfortable reactions, but that of the screaming female masses, not to mention a frantic media, and an even more frantic Washington DC hostess! Is Dr Havistock as innocent as he appears, or is something deeper going on here? Then a dark SUV shows up, with suited men who seem rather too intent on getting both Peter and Leslie out of the way...
There are a lot of improbables here with regard to the likelihood that Peter's situation would exist at all, without even considering his likely reactions to rejoining western society. However, the comic aspects of the situations that Peter and Leslie get into do make up for the unlikeness of the plot. Deauxville is also correct in that unfortunately many people could not pinpoint Papua New Guinea on a map, let alone the surrounding islands and nation states and their relationships to each other, and this does provide justification for Peter's actions. And the ethical conflict is certainly worth exploring.
The comedy is done with a deft touch, but I'm afraid I found the romance aspect singularly lacking.
