Overview

Arriving on a lush Pacific island, Eulalie Grace LaRue was soon to be reunited with the father she hadn't seen since childhood. Yet before Lollie's dreamed-of meeting could take place, the lovely Southern belle was caught in the crossfire of a violent revolution — and thrown into the rugged arms of Sam Forester.

On the run in the jungle, the battle-scarred soldier of fortune didn't know what to do with the pampered blonde placed in his care. Survival was his top priority, but he could not resist Lollie's seductive charm...or deny the growing attraction between them. Though Sam thrived on chance and risk, falling in love was the one chance he wasn't willing to take.

Powerless against the desire that consumed them both, Lollie surrendered to his passionate embrace. But when he dismissed her affections, she was determined to fight for him...

Really funny, at times laugh out loud, adventure romance of a rough-edged mercenary soldier saddled with a dumb (naive) blond. Not meant to take too seriously, this love story is rare fun with a great ending. One of my desert island keepers.

When i first read this i was like oh my freaking gosh i love this hero. He is absolutely perfect. Cynical, sexy, brash and just an all- around badass who takes crap from no one including lollipop. Yeah that thenickname he gave her better than her real name eulalie.The heroine at first meeting her i thought was an empty headed blond but she just had been too sheltered and suffers from an unloving father. He helps build her confidence by being so brutally honest with her that i at times cringed and said oh that was a bit harsh. However she needed this to grow and become aware of the world around her instead of living in a nice comfortable bubble her brothers created to protect her from a father that did not see her value no one did not even her, only the hero did. What a wonderful read.

I loved this book. I read many books but I don't alway find a book that keeps me glued to the end. This is a very funny, spirited book. Great Romance. Highly Recommended

Did someone do a search and replace substituting but for hut? Once okay, you can ignore it and move on. But every single time? She had never seen a but. She looked around his but. He threatened to lock her in her but. I've never seen a published book with quite so many typos requiring deciphering. Reads like a rough draft.

I couldn't read very much of this book; all the errors were too distracting. IF THERE WAS A PROOFREADER OR EDITOR, THEY MUST HAVE BEEN ASLEEP! I have never seen a book with this many mistakes before and that is a blessing as I love to read. Many many times I would read a sentence, that except for one word, did make sense. In more than half the sentences where the word should have been "hut" it was typed as "but"! I would love to get a refund!

The book is a fun read, a good break between heavier hitting books. The story is entertaining enough, but the Nook book is very poorly edited. There are numerous misspellings, extraneous characters and instances where special characters replace letters. It's very hard for me to keep reading when there are so many mistakes throughout the book. I've seen many editing errors in eBooks, but I think this is the worst case that I've seen. I'd love to have a job cleaning up eBooks, if such a position existed, if it doesn't exist now, it needs to because it doesn't seem right to pay for unfinished products.

I like some of her books but not this one. The heroine cries and screams way too much. I like the hero but I didn't laugh out loud. The editing was very poor. 80% of the time hut was corrected to but, the number 1 was used for capital "I"s. I struggled to finish reading it.

The book is good so far, but someone didn't do a very good job of editing the Nook version. There are missing letters, punctuation marks where letters should be ";purred" instead of  "spurred".  It makes me want to take out my pen and correct everything, but I can't because it's the electronic version. It's rather distracting to have to stop and figure out what the word should be. I am only on page 36, but I have found at least 10-15 instances of this.

This heroine is a ditzy blonde before that was a term. I didn't find this book funny - just silly. My first Jill Barnett read and probably my last.

Be prepared to laugh, cry, be scared, feel comforted, and sizzle a time or two. This was a thouroughly enjoyable book. I would definitely read this author again.

This nook book might have been a fun summer read, but there were literally hundreds of spelling and grammatical errors that made attempting to read it nothing but burdensome. For example, the word, "hut", is typed as "but" numerous times. I'm asking for a refund, it was so horrible.

This book had 298 pages. It was painfull in several places, how dume can one girl be. I was surprised that Sam didnt leave her. Even in the 1900 I think the women and girls had some common sence. Omg
