When tough battle-scarred photojournalist-turned-wildlife-photographer Lacey Sommers travels to Costa Rica in a last-ditch effort to save her job, she meets beach-bum-gorgeous Luke Hancock, an outdoor guide, environmentalist and expert on economics and sustainability, who’s been hired by her magazine to serve as her pilot and wilderness guide for the duration of her stay.
It’s clear from the outset there is a powerful physical attraction between the two, but strong personalities, pre-conceived notions, an unexpected and contentious family connection, and the scars from a tragic death and a terrifying event threaten to keep them apart.
Will Lacey shed the mantle of Kevlar she’s worn for so long and allow Luke inside her heart? Or will her ostensible strength be her downfall?

Rescuing Lacey is a sexy, romantic story that will grab your attention from the first sentence. Rebecca Heflin demonstrates her talent for writing as she crafts her enthralling tale of a photojournalist, who is trying to redeem herself in the verdant jungles of Costa Rica and an environmentalist/economics expert who gets hired as her outdoor guide. She adds in strong physical attraction and tantalizing sexual tension to make this a novel that you can’t put down.
The protagonists are real and the chemistry between them electric. The sexual tension between Luke and Lacey is palpable, the setting vividly described, and the story thoroughly entertaining. A totally enjoyable read that will hold your attention to the very last word. I highly recommend this book.
