In her bestselling novel Blue Clouds, Patricia Rice won the hearts of readers everywhere with her delightfully fresh characters and compelling romance. Now her talent erupts once again in VOLCANO–a fiery love story set on a tropical island paradise. . . .
After landing in gorgeous St. Lucia on business, Penelope Albright receives the shock of her life: She is accused of smuggling drugs. Then a sexy stranger appears claiming to be her husband, “kidnapping” her before trouble begins. Or so she thinks. Trouble and Charlie Smith have met. He needs a wife–temporarily–to help him keep a low profile while snooping into the mysterious disappearance of his partner. And like it or not, Penny is already involved.
True, they mix like oil and water, but soon the lush setting and mounting danger put things in a very primal perspective. Like the island’s legendary volcano that holds the key to a deadly scheme of greed and power, their desire is a force of nature all its own. . . .
