“Johannesburg native de Jong (Stolen Lives) offers up a tantalizing romantic drama set in the South African bush… The sexual chemistry bursts from every page as the erotic nature of the story plays out, with de Jong’s characters coming to life both emotionally and sensually.”
“…a most delicious blend of page-turning storytelling and no-holds-barred erotica.”
—Rebecca Coleman, author of The Kingdom of Childhood

You may already be familiar with the author’s impressive resume of heart-pounding thrillers (written under the name Jassy Mackenzie). A newcomer to this genre, JassyDeJong pulls all the stops to create a vivid, romantic picture of a luxurious resort in South Africa where forbidden love runs rampant and one woman is faced with a complicated choice.
Sensuous but stifled New York City photographer Erin Mitchell thinks going to South Africa on assignment will be the perfect getaway. But when a flash flood washes away Erin’s vehicle and she is stranded at a luxury safari lodge, Erin’s romantic working vacation takes an interesting turn. She awakens from her near-drowning and meets her rescuer, Nicholas—hot and brilliant, successful and caring—not at all like her abusive husband. At Leopard Rock in the steamy South African heat, Erin faces the toughest choices of her life. Nicholas is ripped, he’s smart and he’s “no strings attached.” The question of whether to give in or not to give in drowns Erin’s senses as she struggles with two impossible goals: ignore the exquisite physical charms of her host, and conceal every last detail whenever her controlling husband calls. On the other side, Nicholas faces impossible choices of his own, as his bon vivant playboy lifestyle may just possibly collide with feelings more powerful than lust.
Erotic. Exotic. Emotional. Drowning sizzles as one woman is stretched to the breaking point by the strength of her vows and the intensity of her seething primal desires.
