Rock My World

As a former Marine-turned-Hollywood director, Cole Ryder's faced many challenges, but none like this. To research his latest film, he's spending three full days (and nights) in a lush, tropical paradise with sensual survival expert Ariel Leigh, and--according to her protective, wealthy uncle--Cole is not to seduce her, romance her, or in any way touch her. . .not even when she oh-so-casually removes her shirt to show him how it can be used to trap fish. . .not even when she oh-so-uninhibitedly bathes under a waterfall. . .not even when her unexpected kisses and playful pillow talk just beg him to take her in his arms under a canopy of stars. For paradise, t

his is starting to feel a lot like torture. . . Ariel knows her doting uncle only wants her to have a real man who's worthy of her, right down to his tender, faithful heart. Until Cole, Ariel was pretty sure such a guy didn't exist. But there's no denying what she sees in Cole's gaze whenever she's near, and why she's determined to give him one last test to see if he's the one. Oh baby, bring it on. 'Cause this former Marine isn't about to let Ariel leave his heart or his life. He's out to prove that he is the man to take her breath away. . .now and for the rest of their seriously sexy lives. . .

    A GORGEOUS Story!

    I had been hearing about this book for a while now in Cosmo...but I didn't really have any desire to buy it. I saw it one day..and the cover caught my eye! I was in a hurry so I grabbed it hoping it would be a good read...wow! I was right! Cole is THE ideal man....gorgeous body...romantic..everything a woman can ask for. Ariel was very independant and she was set to be on her own in life. They were so great together! I am definately going to look for more books by Tina Donahue! I loved this book! Such a sexy ending too!

    Steamy Sexy Sensational!

    Tina Donahue out does herself with this cutting edge romance between Cole and Ariel. Ariel is an empowered woman who has to find her inner sensuality, while Cole's hot jock body and sexy arrogance have always been out there for the world to see. These two fabulous characters are caught up in an opposites attract romance, over coming their personal stereotypes to defy the odds and find the ultimate treasure, one another! This is one book you don¿t want to miss because the story of Cole and Ariel grows hotter and steamier then the jungle it's set in.

    fabulous funny sultry story

    Former marine, Hollywood director Cole Ryder decides he needs a better understanding of survival in the tropics to bring reality to his next action flick. He arranges first hand research with survival expert Ariel Leigh as his guide for three days and nights in Paradise. However, upon seeing his hostess, Cole thinks more of romance rather than adventure though her wealthy influential uncle warns Cole that Ariel is forbidden fruit and to stay away from his beloved niece or watch his film career end. --- Ariel begins showing Cole survival techniques that tempt Cole beyond anything he ever wanted, her kisses burn his insides so that he wonders if he will survive this trek and has no regard for his movie future as all he can think of is Ariel in his arms and more. Cole does not fear her uncle, but is totally frightened by his feelings and needs for Ariel. However, she believes males except for her relative are fickle with no endurance for the long term. Cole seems different, but one last torturing temptation will determine if he is the one to bring paradise to Ariel as he already owns her heart. --- The exotic location enhances an erotic plot starring two individuals who heat the pages. The story line combines intelligent yet absurd humor with torrid antics as the lead couple amusingly banters back and forth; even when the event seems innocent there is a double entendre; for instance no one will ever go fishing again without thinking of Ariel¿s ¿catch¿. Tina Donahue provides her audience with a fabulous funny sultry story.--- Harriet Klausner
