He has something to prove.
Captain Caleb Frobisher, hedonistic youngest son of a seafaring dynasty, wants to be taken seriously. Seizing the next leg of the covert mission his brothers are pursuing, he acts decisively and effectively in securing the mission's objectives. But responsibility has taken root, and he remains in the jungle to ensure the mission's ultimate goal.
She will risk everything.
Katherine Fortescue fled a life of poverty and came to Freetown as a governess, only to be kidnapped and forced to oversee the child workforce at a mine. Guarded by well-armed, well-trained mercenaries, the captives have lost all hope of escape. Then Katherine meets a handsome man - a captain - and he brings the sweet promise of rescue.
Together they will face the future.
The sadistic mercenary who runs the mine has other plans, but Caleb's true strength lies in extracting advantage from adversity, and through the clashes that follow, he becomes the leader he was always destined to be. The sort of man Katherine can trust - with her body, with her life, and with her love.
Race with the Adventurers Quartet as these passionate daredevils lead the way to the stunning and dramatic conclusion.

The most boring ever
I enjoy Laurens. She writes intelligent, logical and interesting romance. And she is one of the most talented technical writers in the genre. But this story was boring and way too slow. I wanted to scream every time I heard the phrase "we have to open the second tunnel" or "we have to monitor production." Who cares after the first time you've said it?! You don't need to say it a hundred times. It's like the same phrases and conversations were repeated over and over to up the page count.
But the most disappointing aspect of this book is that there was NO tension between them - NONE. No conflict, no danger, no spark, no sparing - nada, zip, zilch, nothing. And neither were interesting characters - absolutely nothing special about either of them. His friend that came along for the adventure was more interesting than the hero!
The second book in this series was okay - not her best but at least held my attention. I hope the last one - about the oldest brother, who has been set up to be the most ruthless and dangerous - will make up for this one.
One last note: the pace was too slow - maybe because the story was so boring. I tried listening to it in fast mode, but that was too much "chipmunks" style and I couldn't do it. Don't know if it was the narrator's fault, but I kept willing him to talk faster so I could hurry up and be done with the book.

slow slow start
I found the start of this story too slow/ it downloads in 2 parts and the 2nd part moves rather better. Part of the trouble was that I could see exactly what was going to happen, & was willing the story to get a move on. If this had been a paperback I'd have been flicking through it to get to the next interesting bit. Not my favourite Stephanie Laurens book.
