THE ORCHID HUNTER
For her entire life, Joya Penn has felt that a piece of herself was missing. Raised in Africa by her horticulturist father, free to adore the majestic land, Joya should have felt peace. But there is a restlessness that drives her to draw pictures of her other selfa girl in England.
Trevor Mandeville comes to Africa in search of the perfect orchid for Queen Victoria. What he finds is his adopted sisters long-lost twin. When Joya meets Janelle, two halves of a whole are united.
In Africa Joya knew all the rules, but here in cold, damp London, her unconventional ideas and uninhibited nature throw Trevor off balance yet attract him. But only uncovering the secrets of the past will lead Trevor to reclaim his wife.
Jill Marie Landis always creates unique characters, but Joyas sensuality and outspoken nature make her Landis most irresistible heroine yet. The humor sparkles, the sensuality sizzles and the gleaming light of love shines through every page of this keeper. SENSUAL (March, 350 pp., $6.99)
