Corey McKinney is a mid-western farm girl on a mission of mercy for her local congregation. Corey's church is interested in funding a reserve called San Reys, deep in the Amazon jungle, in order to aid the native Indians. Corey has volunteered to go to the reserve to write a report on the situation. She expected it wouldn't be easy, but she never expected Asher Adams, her pilot, her guide, her tormentor, her love. Ash knows the jungle as well as Corey knows her farm. Ash came to the Amazon years before when his brother went missing. Everyone knew that people disappear and die in the jungle all the time, but Ash refused to believe that his brother was dead. As orphans, Ash and Luke had been as different as day and night. Luke was always the good boy, Ash was always the bad boy. Convinced he is a worthless nobody, a troublemaker and a disappointment to everyone he has ever cared for, Ash continues to show his worse side to Corey. Corey comes to realize how Ash has closed himself up in a hard shell, only to protect the hurt little boy inside, and she is determined to show him his gentler side, the side that has come to love her just as she has come to love him. Breaking through Ash's shell, however, proves even more difficult than dealing with the dangers and hardships of the jungle, but Corey is determined to make him accept the wonderful love they share.Theresa Weir ignites her romances with passion and danger!

Originally published in 1988 in softcover, this novel won the Romantic Times Best New Adventure Writer Award in that year, and has been recommended in the Romance Reader's Handbook as an all-time recommended read. The story follows Illinois farm-bred social worker Corey McKinney on a church mission to report on the San Reys reserve in the Amazon jungle of Brazil. Flying the plane on the last leg of her journey is magnetic, gravel-voiced bush pilot Asher Adams, whose crudeness has the fascination of Humphrey Bogart's in The African Queen. At San Reys, Ash saves Corey from a Xingu death pit, a lust-filled Tchikao Indian and a downpour of spiders as she is caught between her continuing repulsion from and growing attraction to him, the latter leading finally to graphically rendered consummation. Alternately cynical and tender, clown and caretaker, Asher finally sends Corey back to Pleasant Grove and her Dudley Do-right fiance while he continues his search for his brother in the jungle. This is not the end of the story, however, as Ash, who smells of the jungle and the cockpit, who reads Mad magazine and quotes Tolkien, draws the reader into this richly detailed, if predictably plotted, love story.
