Jenna Marston discovers Santa Beliza is not exactly Eden when she goes searching for the father she believes abandoned her at birth. At the tiny medical station in the Peruvian rainforest where her father lives, Jenna also finds his young partner Dr. Adam DeSanto, an intriguingly handsome but absolutely insufferable man. But she is not in the market for romance since her failed engagement.

Dr. Desanto has similar reasons to want to avoid a relationship. He has taken Santa Beliz as his sanctuary since the death of his wife and does not have the time or patience to babysit his older partners daughter.

Seasoned with humor and a twist of adventure, Ms. Windsors novel also packs an emotional punch as it confronts issues of rejection and unresolved grief. This romance is as captivating as the Amazon Rainforest in which it is set. (Jul., 384 pp., $6.99)
