A romance writer sets off to Colombia to pay the ransom of her kidnapped sister, and soon finds herself in the middle of a dangerous adventure. Thrown into a jungle full of gunfire, mud slides and poisonous snakes, Joan's only hope lies with Jack Colton, a rugged wanderer straight out of her novels. Together, they'll have to outwit the bandits and survive the jungle if they're to save her sister.
