If you’re going to fly into the path of an oncoming hurricane, there’s only one man you want as Captain: ex-Air Force pilot, Rook Terzi. But why would you do ever do such a thing in the first place? This definitely isn’t the smartest decision Rook has ever made, as evidenced by an abrupt landing on the wrong side of Coxa de Peru, but being marooned isn’t all bad. In fact, it would be almost paradise if it weren’t for one particular passenger: YouTube personality and alpha-wannabe, Bryce Norris.

Bryce figures he’s the best choice to take charge of this group of survivors. He’s a paid adventurer, after all. Sure, his production manager usually handles the details, but Bryce does his own stunts, and he’s ready to sacrifice his body in any way necessary. Too bad no one’s asking him to play hero, because he’s well-equipped for the job.

When a crew member’s declining health means they can’t wait for rescue any longer, Bryce and Rook need to stop fighting for dominance and start cooperating on a jungle trek towards civilization. Can their rivalry turn to passion beneath a tropical moon?

In the competition to find a husband for Princess Atalanta, Thoros has a certain advantage. He happens to know that he and Atalanta appreciate the same things in a man: an attitude so rebellious it demands to be punished, a spirit so dauntless it can only be tamed by a single master. Yes, Dalin has the hard body and quick mind of a warrior, but Thoros must teach him to meet the hidden challenges in Atalanta's contests, the ones only he knows are there.

Dalin will do anything to escape the caste he was born into-even marry a woman. If Thoros can help him win Atalanta's hand, he'll endure the pain and humiliation of Thoros's peculiar brand of training, and he'll pay the price Thoros demands in return from his body and his soul. What Dalin won't do is admit how much he likes it. He might submit, but he'll never surrender.

As one competitor after another is eliminated, Dalin's chances look good. But winning means leaving Thoros's cottage for Atalanta's castle, an exchange he's no longer sure he wants to make. Meanwhile, Thoros is realizing that he's forged his perfect partner only to give him away. Can two stubborn warriors fight their way to a prize more valuable than a kingdom?
