Reading about danger never prepared Samantha Prince for the desperate phone call from her brother in Brazil that sent her from the safety of her New Orleans bookstore into the rugged, inhospitable Amazon in search of him and a hidden treasure. And reading about romance never prepared Samantha to resist the mysterious appeal of Brock Slader, a guide she hired to help her in her quest.
Alone with Brock in an alien world of orchids and anacondas, primitive headhunters and very up-to-date gunmen, she struggles to keep their relationship strictly business. Will Samantha survive the dangers in the jungle only to have her heart broken by a man who lives on the edge—no strings attached?
Q) What inspired you to write this story?
I love reading adventures with a suspense element, and I've been fascinated with the Amazon. Dangerous Pursuit is both—a sense of Romancing the Stone and African Queen.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
This book is one of my Dell Ecstasy stories that I published years ago and got the rights back to. I went through and rewrote parts of the story to update it. It took me three months to write it originally and one month to rewrite it.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
Coming up with the plot--brainstorming the story.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
Description and promoting my book
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
This is an interesting question. I thought about this for a while. There is no one I really would like to be because I am content with who I am.
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
Ha! Probably the thing in the back that has turned black and an eerie greenish color. I'm not even sure what it is. Or the bag of mini carrots that have been in the fridge for three months.
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
I recently put out the second book in The Protectors series call Dangerous Interlude. I'm currently working on the third book in the series, Dangerous Paradise.
