Eric meets Berani and that when things get more complicated. Berani is a tiger you can say. She is also the Shaman in her tribe. She ends of injuring Eric and has to cure him since his injury becomes infected. All this without speaking a work that they understand to one another. What will happen while Berani has Eric under her care, Read to find out. My downside o this novel is how long it too me to get into the storyline and understand where it was going. It is a unique read and its very erotic, so this is definitely for the adult readers of my blog.
Summary: (from goodreads) They formed a bond so strong even death couldn’t keep them apart.
CEO Eric Randall’s plan is simple—fix the mess his researchers have created in Malaysia, experience the pleasures the country has to offer, and hightail it back to the comforts of America. Then again, simple plans always seem to have a way of going awry. All it takes is one beautiful aborigine to completely flip his world upside down, and Eric finds himself stranded in a world of Malaysian myths and legends.
A novice shaman amongst her people, Berani is free and independent; the rain forest is her playground. Yet all is not well in her homeland. Evil forces are slowly causing her people to dwindle to extinction. When a strange speaking man invades her forest, she has one more item to add to her already troubled life. One thing for sure, she’s not about to let some overbearing human control her on her own turf. Attraction or no, she will fight Eric tooth and claw to maintain her freedom. But will she end up destroying herself in the process?
