She's in Brazil on a secret mission for her father...
A quiet, conservative teacher who's lived in one small Virginian town all her life, Marisa Elliott plunges into a desperate adventure when she meets Scott Dunbar a devilishly handsome pilot, who is apparently down on his luck. Marissa tells him she's searching for her Confederate ancestors who fled to Brazil during the Civil War. She persuades him to take her far into the jungles of the Amazon, but she doesn't tell him her relatives have offered to give back the bank money they absconded with so long ago-money her father wants her to bring home to clear the Elliott name.
He has an agenda all his own....
Once burned in a bad marriage, Scott Dunbar hates commitment of any kind. To him, work is a four-letter word. He wants Marissa, though he knows she's not the kind of girl to settle for a one night stand. Or is she? He's hiding something, but then, so is she. He just can't figure out what. Is she really here to find her missing relatives? Or is her mission something much more sinister?
