Thank You, Dana Marton

I read CAMOUFLAGE HEART over the weekend. Lovely action/adventure/romance set in the Malaysian jungle. I love that kind of story, but I've been hesitant to try something quite like that myself.

Then it occurred to me that the urban jungle is fraught with its own dangers and beauties, and that navigating that urban jungle is just what I needed my heroine to do to become more proactive (and endangered) in my beleaguered WIP.

So thanks, Dana, for a great read and the inspiration.

Hey, I love that setting, too!

I'm a sucker for hero and heroine on the run in a foreign setting. Gayle Wilson has done it really well a time or two, and Dana did a fantastic job with it in CAMOUFLAGE HEART. One of the first Linda Howard books I ever read was also a "stuck in the jungle running from the bad guys story"—MIDNIGHT RAINBOW.
