About this Item

Good mass market paperback. The average used book with all pages persent, creasing to spine and wear to cover, but not unattractive. From a 20-year romance collection. The book had been lovingly read and reread. Owner's name was Bee, so there may be a pen drawing of a bee on title page with small red star's or x's (Bee's 4 star rating system). Could have another bookstore's stamping on text block (naughty, naughty!!). Bookseller Inventory # PZ6829

About this title


Striving to forget an unhappy past and the forbidden passion she feels for her new brother-in-law, Ruth Bellafontaine tries to dedicate herself to her husband's work with African gorillas and finds she cannot deny her feelings for Brett. Original.


At thirteen, Ruth Bellafontaine is betrayed by her mother, given to her mother's lover as a sexual toy. From this tragic beginning in the heart of Mississippi, Ruth struggles to build a life for herself away from everything she has known. But running from the memories is harder than anything Ruth has ever done. Max, the man who raped her, has no intentions of letting her get away and live her own life. He follows her, trying to seduce her with his money and power. Ruth sees no hope, no way out, until a path comes into her life in the form of Dr. Brett Corday, a scientist who works with gorillas in the jungles of Central America. Ruth sees Brett on a TV show, and is mesmerized by his handsome charm. She decides to go to college, to work with gorillas the way Dr. Corday does. Then she meets Brett's brother, Malone, the man she ends up marrying to escape her mother's lover. Brett Corday is used to taking care of his younger brother. He's done it for years, even losing an eye as a young man while saving Malone's life. Then Malone brings Ruth into their lives, the one woman who could tear apart their family bond. Brett's not sure he can save his brother again, let alone save himself.A story of triumph over tragedy! Ms. Webb has captured the anguish and the hope of abuse survivors! A novel lush with atmosphere, seething with the heat of the jungle!Annette Carney -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times
