Love & Other Wild Things
By Alyson Root
Ellie Bishop is America’s sweetheart with a slew of award-winning rom-coms under her belt.
Unfortunately for her, the sweet girl next door bit is tiresome and doesn’t allow her to show the acting world what she’s really capable of.
If only her manager would find the roles Ellie craves. When he comes with an offer for a reality TV show, Ellie is less than thrilled. Wild Celebrities is not the action-packed adventure she was looking for. In fact, this city slicker can’t think of anything worse than shipping off to God knows where for a month with only a backpack and a survival expert to keep her company. Her need for several caramel frappuccinos daily is legendary. There is no way in hell she’s going to subject herself to bugs and animals that could kill or eat her. No matter how much they offer to pay her.
Robin Stuart is looking for a new direction in life after working as a bodyguard for privileged divas. Not what she thought she would be doing after serving in the British Marines. That new direction comes in the form of Wild Celebrities when her best friend begs her to take his place. From the moment Robin finds out who her celebrity survivor is, she is sure of two things. One: Ellie Bishop is hot. Two: She’s going to be useless in the Amazon rainforest. The show is going to test more than Robin’s survival skills, of that she is sure!
When the unthinkable happens, Ellie and Robin and two crew members are catapulted into their worst nightmares. Robin is their only chance of making it out of the rainforest alive. Easier said than done. With lives on the line, can both women put aside their stark differences long enough to come up with an escape plan? Is there more to be found in the Amazon other than wild things?
