Bestselling author Jill Marie Landis continues her exploration of complex human relationships in The Orchid Hunter. Innocent beauty Joya Penn has spent her life on the idyllic jungle island of Matarenga, aiding her father in the search for rare orchids. When worldly Trevor Mandeville stumbles into the Penn's rainforest campsite, he is stunned by his first glimpse of Joya--she is the identical image of Trevor's adopted sister Janelle. Joya is thrilled to travel to London to meet the twin sister she has never known, but it is the dignified Trevor who captures Joya's interest. Her irrepressible nature and uninhibited sensuality are equally captivating to poor Trevor, who finds it difficult (impossible!) to maintain his distance. Their burgeoning desire for each other scandalizes the straight-laced British society, but Trevor cannot relinquish his beloved Joya, his own island orchid. --Alison TrinkleAbout the Author:
