After a year as Anthony's wife, Juliana wrestles with dissatisfaction and longing. She returns to the island of her birth when Anthony gets an assignment from his magazine to write a series of stories on primitive cultures and pagan ceremonies.
When her father Peter meets them at the dock, Juliana recognizes the handsome man with him as Nasir, an old childhood friend and classroom rival. During the long drive through the jungle to the village, they debate philosophy and politics. While Anthony takes a quick dislike to Nasir, Juliana finds him intriguing.
Join Juliana on her sensual journey of self-discovery as her relationship with Anthony dies and her ties to Nasir and the island grow through a series of encounters involving ancient fertility rituals, financial hardships, the undying love of family, and a mysterious island sorceress.

I enjoyed this entertaining romance between a hero and a heroine who are not like the typical characters in this genre. The sex scenes were explicit but tasteful, and the plot was very compelling. I found the island to be quite interesting and would like to read more about these and other characters in that setting. It would have been interesting if the book had been a little longer and delved more into the conflict between the would-be developers and the traditionalists. I'd also like to know more about the priestess. But, the story is quite complete as written--just interesting enough that I would have enjoyed reading even more. I'll keep an eye out for more books by Robin Davis.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
