Paradise calls to Chase Wilcox. A man of science fascinated by volcanoes, he is drawn to the lush beauty of the island of Hawaii while planning to escape into his work. The last thing he needs or wants is love.
The island is home to many unexpected wonders, which is why Nicole Ballard could never leave it. She is a research assistant, an artist, and a dancer -- a tall, stunning redhead who goes by the stage name of Pele, the goddess of fire.
Nicole has never met a man quite like Chase, strong, intense, and brilliant. And he, in turn, is fascinated by this remarkable woman who seems to be a breathtaking force of nature. Joined on an important scientific project, Nicole and Chase will be forced to confront their own lingering inner darkness while resisting a newly inflamed need to touch, to give . . . to care.

Hawaii = Heat. That's the author's central equation in this romance set on the Big Island. Fires are seething within the earth, as well as in the bodies of Chase and Nicole (aka Pele, red-haired hula dancer). Both are Mainland refugees from broken marriages who have been badly burned by past relationships. James Daniels's cool delivery keeps a lid on the sexual tension until it slowly, irresistibly, boils over, just as Mt. Kilauea starts to do. The beat of island drums that ends each tape imitates the lovers' pounding hearts. E.V. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
