Alexandra McAlister is a scientist buried deep within her volcano cave on the small island of Tuwanga in the South Pacific. Just as she thinks she is getting closer to making headway on her much worked for and awaited project, things come to a screeching halt and she finds herself swept away by a man she detests and a beautiful young princess she finds herself loving and wanting to protect. With her entire team dead or in jeopardy she knows she has no option BUT to follow Daniel "Joey" Martin wherever he thinks is safest. Following her newly appointed "protector" realizes quickly the ruse of being a happy family could easily come true - if only they would both let go and follow their heart instead of their mind.
Between the gun wielding thugs, the geek speak and the simmering romance that finally blossoms, I found this to be a book worthy of 5 stars. Huffman brings out a lot of great current issues regarding our Nation's economic situation and the energy problems affecting our environment, but it flows well within the story and doesn't make it overwhelming or boring. The few parts where "geek speak" was obvious where some of my favorites - as I am total closet dork/geek/nerd.Read more ›
This is the first time I have read one of Heather Huffman's books and it's safe to say I am definitely hooked.
This book is a good old fashioned love story. Of course things do not happen straight away between Alex and Daniel, the reader is left to wonder "will they? won't they?" but this only kept me more interested and engaged in the story.
Like any good love story I was left hopelessly in love with Daniel and quite envious of Alex.
I loved the character of Lani, she is an adorable little character and fits into Daniel and Alex's story quite well, if it wasn't for her presence I don't think they would not have pursued their romantic interest in each other.
I loved the fact Alex is such a strong independent woman and Daniel was perhaps one of the few men who could actually protect her.
When they finally 'get it on' I felt like giving them a round of applause and I thought "about time".
Romance aside there were some really gritty parts in the book, when Chad was shot it left me feeling quite shocked and it left me worried whilst reading the rest of the story in case Alex lost her life.
I also thought the part where Alex went for breakfast alone and was nearly kidnapped was brilliantly written, my heart was pounding until Jackson came to her rescue.
I loved the ending to the book, it did have a very happy ending and it did finish how the reader would hope but I don't think I could have faced Alex, Daniel or Lani to be killed off.
I rate this book a very strong 4 stars and I would love to read more of Heather Huffman's books soon.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
A rather enticing combination, this. It’s both a romantic fiction novel and a thriller. There’s a meaningful message in there too, about using the earth’s resources for the good of humanity as well as an attack on faceless corporations which use individuals as pawns in a game and cynically use the earth’s resources for profit.
But first, the romance. Alex, our heroine, is an archetypal geek. A scientist who revels in field research. She can fly a plane and drive a jeep. She’s more at home in jeans and boots than in skirts and heels. She’s unfamiliar with cosmetics. She thinks love is not for her because she can’t ‘play the game’, so to speak. Our hero Daniel is an ex US Military man of Irish origin, whose current assignment is guarding the life of the Crown Princess of Tuwanga, a south Pacific island paradise which is home to some of the earth’s richest mineral resources. When Alex’s research station is attacked and the Princess’s life is also threatened, Alex and Daniel, who incidentally can’t abide each other, are forced to play happy families. The role of Princess Aolani’s parents comes easier to both of them than they’d thought. They’ve got to protect the young Queen-to-be and fend off threats from the oil conglomerate which wants the Princess’s island resources. Thrills and spills all the way.
As sex scenes go, there’s just one and the language is romantic rather than erotic. No matter. The book fairly sizzles with sexual tension. Sizzles and crackles. When you put this book down, you just can’t wait to pick it up again. Heather Huffman is one heck of a skilled author to pull that one off.Read more ›

Fair story. The writing style is not sophisticated and sometimes gushing. The romantic thread I found bordering on naive. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Hamish P
