As the past and the present collide in a romance as steamy as the country it is set in, Rachael will need to decide what her future will be... and if it will include the mysterious Xaman.
With echoes back to the Mayan civilizations in Belize, this story is more than just a romance. A mixture of history, a blending of cultures, and... of course... magic, Xaman tells the tale of a love that resonates through the ages. Beaudelaire and Stark do a wonderful job of bringing this story to live and helping you live the tale itself, from fear to hope to love. Neither completely serious nor a trip through humor, this is a blending that showcases the best of their talents. My only complaint about this book is that it ended, and I can only hope that these two authors continue to work together in the future!
Rachael is an independent, strong-minded woman who goes after what she wants in life, Josh has invited himself along on this three month expedition to chaperone her, which didn't sit well with Rachael at all. As unexpected events arose, Mayan mysticism and history were brought into play, captivating my attention completely. The plot moves at a good pace as some seedy characters are introduced and take the plot in unexpected directions, not the least of which is the introduction of the devastatingly handsome and mysterious Xaman.
When certain Mayan artifacts spark visions, memories, or dreams in Rachael, she is a bit unnerved but interested in finding out what it all means. Seeking the help of the local curandera, she has no idea what she is in for when a whole new world from the past comes to light. Soon after, Josh's true role in the plot becomes evident. The authors have woven a fascinating tale about past lives and fate surrounded by mysticism of the Jaguar Queen in the Mayan jungle who felt slighted hundreds of years ago.
I think Mr. Stark's and Ms. Beaudelaire writing styles and storytelling meshed well. I hope to see some more collaborations between these two in the future.
FYI: Ms. Beaudelaire writes some steamy sex scenes which are explicit but well written. These may not be suitable for some readers. I enjoyed them.
Format/Typo Issues: No significant issues.

A good read, this is a layered story with interesting characters. Give yourself some time to get to know them and be transported along with them into the hot and steamy jungles of Belize.
Rachael is a scientist and a photographer who wants to discover a new hummingbird. There she goes in a field trip to Belize to find it. Her fiance invites himself for the trip, but he is more a dead weight on her back than anything else. In the village they use as base, she meets a mysterious man named Xaman, and everything changes.
I loved loved loved this book. I hope the writers work more together, because they have great chemistry.
