THE ORCHID HUNTER manages to capture the essence of the Silhouette Bombshell line about as well as I've ever seen. A highly charged action-adventure tale with a romantic subplot, Ms. Moore has managed to interweave a ton of separate plot elements into a book that is destined to become a feature on your keeper shelf.

For Jessica Robards, keeping her client supplied with the rarest flowers found the world over is a job that takes dedication, skill, and an unerring sense of survival. Linus von Brutten III expects nothing but success from his employee, and Jessie refuses to fail. This time, however, the job is personal. Von Brutten has promised to save her dying uncle if she brings back him the Death orchid. How her employer knew that her uncle, a honky-tonk owner who suffered horribly from a pharmaceutical research experiment, is dying, and how to cure him, is a question that Jessie can't afford to analyze too closely.

She sets out for rainforests of Brazil, and is immediately faced with trouble on all sides. Local tribes who simply want her to leave them in peace, tough-guy CIA agents with unknown agendas, and even fellow rivals looking for the same Death orchid all hope to watch Jessica fail. But then, she meets Rick Kincaid, an entomologist studying a moth who just so happens to pollinate the same flower she's hunting for.

THE ORCHID HUNTER is wonderfully interspersed with detailed accounts of the landscapes that Jessie and Rick wander through, rich tellings of the rainforest and its inhabitants, and details about flowers that I honestly had never even heard of before. Between the kick-butt action, the steamy attraction between Jessica and Rick, and the bad guys hot on their trail, THE ORCHID HUNTER is Bombshell at its best. ( )
