"Allie Parker is devastated by the death of her best friend in an explosion on a company-owned yacht, and she's convinced foul play is involved. Determined to find evidence in support of her theory, she slips aboard a second company yacht. Stunned to hear people coming aboard, she decides to hide until they leave, but soon finds herself in real danger as the yacht departs the harbor and heads out into the open sea. Jake Dawson is in charge of a menacing crew and the illegal cargo they're transporting to Belize, and the simmering mistrust among the outlaws is further heightened when Allie is discovered aboard. Jake claims her as his own to protect her, then feels compelled to confide in her, disclosing his true identity--he's an undercover agent--and his mission. Allie proves her mettle to her savior when, having boarded a cargo plane, they crash in the jungle. Martin, author of the bestseller Heartless [BKL My 1 01] among other popular romances, spins a busy and suspenseful plot in her newest sexy tale." -- Booklist
Allie Parker knows her best friend's death was no accident, and her quest to find the truth soon puts her in the wrong place--at the worst possible time...

An unwilling passenger on a boat carrying deadly cargo and dangerous men, her only ally is mysterious Jake Dawson, who warns her that she must play the role of his reluctant bedmate...if she wants to stay alive.

Before long, the heat rising between Allie and Jake has drawn them into the heart of the steamy Carribean--and into something deeper than they ever imagined. Now as Allie places her trust--and herself--in the hands of a total stranger, she wonders if this desperate gamble will be her last...
