Jacqueline Hopkins knows the world where she's placed her characters. Her descriptions of the smells of coffee, forests and horses in the cold dawns of Nez Perce National Forest are crisp and believable; I was transported to a world I knew little about until I read this book. Lyn's love for her mountains and animals, the expert ease with which she traipses through the crevices of the National Forest feel real. I clearly shared her shock when she was faced with her most challenging customer ever: a handsome stranger named Nic Randall.
Ms. Hopkins has written a story that initially reads like a romance, but has a mystery/thriller brewing underneath the passionate exchanges between the main characters. No one is quite whom they seem to be, and no feelings are thoroughly disclosed until the very end. Readers are compelled to turn the pages to unveil who Nic really is, what his motives are, and how much of a rival he might be to Brad, Lyn's elusive fiance. "Wilderness Heart" pits the main characters against danger and deception, but unerneath the plot is a wonderfully beating heart.
Kudos to Ms. Hopkins for creating appealing, interesting characters and offering us the beautiful backdrop of the mountains and forests she describes so elegantly.
The author's taste in sensual description was highlighted by her description of what a real nice man's butt must be -- one that completely fills a pair of jeans. As a result I can say that though there are some rather explicit sexual scenes, these are tasteful and leave enough to the reader's imagination. Sensuality, therefore, permeates the entire story.
I guess I may have forgotten a few things about sex, but I have always been intrigued by the "musky smell" concept -- it brings me the urge to shower the culprit!
Oh yes, love does end up the winner!
Lyn Taylor is fierce and loyal to herself, father who was grieving for his lost wife and decides that she is responsible to keep the family business alive while her dad went through his period of grief. She is engaged to a man 12 years older than her age. He is becoming restless and showing his true colours and desires she quit her career and become his wife. She is torn in two does she settle down with a demanding man or break free and be her own person.
In the midst of the fork in the road, she has to prove herself to the males' species she was an experienced hunter and guide and some of the paying male customers are not pleased to have a woman guiding them into the rugged setting.
She may have met her match, with Nic Randall at first appearance who came off as a rude woman hater with his complaints about women were not able to be good company in the wilderness. His arguments, they could not be quiet and chase the prey away, wore too much make-up and even bought an electric hair dryer with them in the wilderness where there was no electricity, which did not make sense to him. He was turned off with inviting woman on hunts with him.
She was different and has to prove herself to this hard headed man that she was the opposite of what he perceived women to be in the wilderness.Read more ›
