Colonial South Carolina and Florida provide the steamy settings for New York Times-bestseller Deveraux's latest romance. Twenty-year-old Cay Harcourt expects a brief adventure when she sets off one dark night to do her godfather T.C. a favor by delivering supplies that will aid Alex McDowell's escape from prison. Suddenly she finds herself on the run with Alex, a man wrongly convicted of murdering his wife. T.C. had arranged for Alex to join a naturalist's expedition into the wilds of Florida, and the last thing Alex wants is the distraction of a lovely, vivacious—and argumentative—woman like Cay. But with three dull suitors waiting back home, Cay welcomes the excitement and finds herself as smitten with Alex as he is with her. Deveraux (Holly) delivers the usual lover's quarrels and plot twists in an exotic historical setting where the threat of a broken heart seems as deadly as the native alligators and poisonous snakes.
