Working for a California-based film production company, David McIntyre is the go-to man for matching the right location to the right project for the right price. On an extended trip to Hawaii, he hires Sutton’s Air Service to cart him all around to some of the most exotic locations in the South Pacific. During one of those trips, a freak tropical storm forces them to make a crash landing, leaving both men stranded without a radio and with very little in the way of food and water. Rick Sutton’s injuries make it imperative that they be rescued soon, and David finds himself calling on all his professional skills to keep both of them alive.
It takes a vivid dream about WW2 however, to make David realize that he has real feelings for Rick—more than just his natural concern that both of them get out of this mess alive. But putting his heart on the line might be the greatest risk David has ever taken—does he have the courage to make it before time runs out on both of them?
David is on the search for the right location for a filming project when he hires Sutton to fly him around the island searching for the right spot. But unforeseen weather hits and causes their plane to crash and Sutton to be injured. Now it is up to David to take care of Sutton while hoping someone will rescue them.
Now I want to start this review of my saying I really loved the pretense of this authors story. The whole trying to survive on a unknown island while at the same time falling in love with your fellow survivor was just awesome. The only really confusing part to me was the dream from the past which was a really big part of this book and I am not really sure how I feel about it. Other than that you get action with this book and a little bit of steam too between these two men.
I really liked the story this author created in this book and the characters too.
All together I really liked this book!

She enjoys photography, hiking with her German Shepherd, and competing her horse in the sport of combined training and eventing. Writing has become a passion that sometimes take precedence over everything else. As a matter of fact, when she is in the middle of a chapter, she usually relies on the smoke detector to tell her when dinner is ready.
