(Untamed Safari Series, #2)
Date Published: August 5, 2015
Conservationist, Sophie Kyle, takes up a position on a private game farm outside Cape Town in the hopes of paying off her student loans, adding a glowing reference to her resume and indulging her passion for wildlife conservation.
Reuben Manning is a British businessman who has bought a game farm in Africa which he intends to use as a venue to entertain friends and business associates.
With the suddenness and intensity of a bushfire, a powerful attraction ignites between the conservationist and the tycoon, but Sophie has only ever wanted to spend her days in the African bush, while Reuben’s life is corporate London.
As the sensuous bond between the two grows, they must find common ground or they are doomed to spend the rest of their lives a continent apart.
Sophie as a character is so easy to love. She has her issues and has dealt with quite a bit, but she has overcome and is strong despite that.
Reuben is a wonderful lead as well. He will have you swooning before it is all said and done due to his complete sweetness.
There is a definite level of heat in this novel, and Leigh has done a great job making sure we are invested in the relationship.
Leigh writes romance novels set in her native South Africa. She has always had a love affair with Africa’s wild open spaces, the intensity of its people and sunsets. Her love of storytelling began as a child when she spent every spare moment playing barefoot in golden grass, watching wild creatures, learning to track spoor and dreaming up heroes and heroines dynamic enough to stand out in all the beauty and drama of the African landscape.
Always in search of adventure, Leigh’s journey as a writer has taken her from journalism through communications, to working as a novelist.
