Can an English lady raised as a "wild orchid" ever be truly tamed?

When Trevor Mandeville leaves behind the drawing rooms of London and journeys to an island paradise in search of a rare orchid, he comes face-to-face with an even more shocking treasure. Stolen from her family at a young age, Joya Penn has spent most of her life running wild and free. Trevor tries to resist her charms, but soon finds himself captivated by the deliciously innocent--yet wildly seductive--young creature with eyes as blue as a mountain lake and blonde hair rippling down her back in an untamed mane.

Given her first taste of desire by the handsome adventurer, Joya believes all her dreams have come true when Trevor agrees to escort her back to London. But her uninhibited ways quickly throw his entire household--and his heart--into delightful chaos.

As Joya despairs of ever being the sort of "proper lady" Trevor could love, Trevor begins to wonder if he's finally found the treasure he has been hunting for his entire life . . . in the forbidden paradise of Joya's arms.

Jill Marie Landis
"A heartwarming, sexy, page-turner." --Susan Elizabeth Phillips

"With her first foray into contemporary novels, Jill Marie Landis utilizes all the power and emotion that has made her such a beloved storyteller. Her characters are compelling, believable, and possess all those troubling human foibles."--Romantic Times (Top Pick!)

For six years, Carly Nolan has built a secretive life for herself and her son Christopher. Nobody in the quiet little beach community of Twilight Cove, California, suspects she is running from the tragic memory of her fiancé Rick and his unexpected death--and from his rich, powerful parents, who want to take away her child. She has carefully concealed her troubled past from the folks in the isolated cove. Until now.

Private investigator, Jake Montgomery, has been looking for "Caroline Graham" since the day she disappeared with his best friend's baby. All Jake wants is answers. He finally finds her living under her assumed name. She's a beautiful, devoted single mother; she captures his heart immediately.

Carly cautiously allows Jake into her life, beginning to trust another person for the first time in years. She never imagines that Jake is caught between his mission and his growing passion. The man she has fallen in love with poses a threat to her protected world.

A seven-time Romance Writers of America finalist for the RITA Award, Jill Marie Landis also now writes The Tiki Goddess Mysteries (set on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, where she lives with her husband, actor Steve Landis.)
