To escape temporarily from his overwhelming family, American Finn Kavanagh vacations in a small South American country El Tigre. To wash away some of his travel frustrations he stops in a cantina in the capital Santa Rosa when the beautiful blonde strolls into the bar. Stunned not only to see an apparent American female here, but even more astonishing is his desire for this stranger.
Magdalene Deluca arrived in her childhood home Santa Rosa searching for her missing missionary parents in spite of them practically abandoning her when she was a young teen. Following her as she leaves the cantina, Finn rescues Magdalene from a kidnapping attempt. He also joins her on her search and rescue mission; while the cartel targets her and by extension him.
Running Wild is an action-packed Amazonian romantic suspense starring two amiable leads (Finn was a support character in the Sisterhood Diaries) with polar opposite family issues. Although the protagonists are too perfect especially the blending of their specific skills even as the romance supersedes the danger, readers will relish this “rumble in the jungle” (hard to believe forty-one years have passed).
