Not EL's best work and probably not her worst -- though it IS the worst I’ve read of her stuff. I borrowed it from the library and read it while on the elliptical. It was good workout material, but I wouldn't have read it otherwise. Disappointing, but I'll read more of Ms. Lowell's stuff (or the books she and her husband write as Ann Maxwell). ( )

Basically a Harlequin Romance type, with very shallow Story line. ( )
  GailL | Jan 18, 2012 |
Like all of Elizabeth Lowell's heroines from the 80s and early 90s, Chase Wilcox has been badly burned by a woman, and now believes that virtually all women are rapacious gold diggers. Similarly, Nicole Ballard had her confidence shattered by her ex-husband and now doesn’t want anything to do with men. Sparks, misunderstanding, etc. This isn't Lowell's best work of the era. Chase's resentment of Nicole doesn't feel natural, and Nicole's conviction that she's frigid is equally forced. His early mistreatment of her is serious enough that the reader has trouble accepting their later reconciliation. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380789957, Mass Market Paperback)

Paradise calls to Chase Wilcox. A man of science, escaping the destruction of his own personal world, he is drawn to the lush beauty of the island of Hawaii and the secrets it holds. Here he intends to immerse himself in his work . . . and somehow heal and forget.

A research assistant, an artist, and a dancer, Nicole Ballard also hides a secret pain. Together on an important scientific project in the moist, verdant heart of a tropical wonderland, both she and Chase will be forced to confront their own lingering inner darkness. But in the shadows of Mount Kilauea, a passion that burns like fire will erupt, as unpredictable and dangerous as the living volcano, transforming the very landscape of their lives.

A classic story of desire, hope, and dangerous destiny from the incomparable New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell
