She wants me dead. I want her as my wife.
They call me a savage. A beast. A jungle warlord fighting a forgotten war in a place the world forgot. And believe me, that suits me just fine. No rules, no BS, no baggage.
That is, until the very second Isla Carrington steps off a plane and into my world as my captive.
She’s everything I’ve ever run from – brains, sass, and beauty. A literal royal duchess, for God’s sake. She also might be everything I’ve ever wanted. It’s dangerous for her to be here. Not because of the bullets, mortars, or the man-eating tigers that prowl this jungle. It’s dangerous because her being here temps me.
I should send her packing. But a rival wants my head on a plate after a misunderstanding. The only way I keep it on my neck is if I pretend my gorgeous captive is my new wife.
I threw myself into a jungle war for the freedom to be alone and escape the world. Now, I’ll do anything to keep her with me. And all to myself.
Fast paced and sexy as Hell ~ 5 sizzling stars!
This novella by Jagger Cole is a hugely enjoyable jungle romp and as sexy as Hell! It is the first book I’ve read by the author and his writing certainly packs a punch and presses all the right buttons. In fact it’s perfect if you want to spend an hour or two in the company of Killian, the alpha hero and Isla the sassy heroine who rocks his jungle kingdom.
When Killian double crosses Isla and makes her his captive, he soon realises that she is not the woman he expected her to be – instead she temps him like no other and has secrets of her own… He resolves to use her in a plan to save his own head and secure the safety of his private army. Cue for a fabulous story with plenty of smoking hot erotic scenes.The couple are a perfect fit for each other and I was quickly invested in their HEA. Yet will Isla agree to his plan and will it be enough to save Killian’s skin? Indeed, will Isla survive and do the couple have a future given the circumstances that brought them together?
I just loved the battle of wits between the two as they fall for each other, not to mention the action packed danger and suspense as the story unfolds.
Recommended for lovers of romantic suspense who enjoy plenty of heat.

About the Author
Jagger Cole likes his romance books like he likes his martinis—extra dirty, with a twist. A reader first and foremost, Jagger got his start with steamy romance almost ten years ago, writing especially dirty and somewhat perplexing Star Wars erotic fan-fiction for online message boards.
After deciding to hang up his writing boots, Jagger worked in advertising for a number of years pretending to be Don Draper. It worked enough to convince a woman way out of his league to marry him, though, which is a total win.
Now, Dad to two little princesses and “Daddy” to a Queen, Jagger is thrilled to be back at the keyboard.
When not writing or reading steamy romance books, he can be found woodworking, enjoying good whiskey, and grilling outside—rain or shine.
