Bestia

By Nancy Brooks

Romance, Paranormal | Paperback, eBook


There was only one thing Jacob Engelmann loves more than to follow renowned Archaeologist Ethan Jameson around Latin America: making love to any woman he wants. It doesn’t even matter that his friend is obsessed with following an ancient trail that borders more on fairytale than it does on fact. He would have been content to continue living in Ethan’s shadow, but the moment he lays eyes on Sabreena Silvano, his whole world collapses. Though she never casts a glance his way, and she marries his best friend, his desire for her demands that he part company. Years later, with his life on track and his own excavations under way, Jacob’s worst nightmare begins to unfold as Ethan begs him stay with Sabreena until he can return from a dangerous trip into the Amazon. The fact that her husband believes he’s attracted the wrath of a Tukano deity is hard enough for Sabreena to accept. Leaving his promiscuous friend in charge of everything, including her, is more than she can tolerate. She can’t stand his smirk, the way he talks and thinks, or even his smell, but as days turn into months, and rumor of Ethan’s death reaches them, Sabreena begins to see a side of Jacob she never expected. Jacob becomes indispensable; he makes her laugh, he comforts her when she misses Ethan, and he stays with her on nights when she can’t sleep. Spurred on by his confession of love, her own confusing emotions, and vivid dreams of Ethan lying helpless in the jungle, Sabreena agrees to become Jacob’s wife on one condition—that they go to the Amazon to find his body. What starts out as a journey for closure becomes a furious search for Sabreena after she’s swallowed into the darkest regions of the jungle. Desperate to get back the only woman he’s ever loved, Jacob soon finds himself thrust into a world of mystery and magic, where love and desire are wielded as weapons, and forbidden knowledge is protected by jaguar warriors. It’s the first step on an epic adventure that will lead him towards impending battle, human sacrifice, and eternal balance.
