Jove, Jan 2002, 6.50, 304 pp.
His brothers recently found love that led to marriage, but Zane Winston plans to remain a contented bachelor for at least the near future. Zane loves to play the field, but his perfect single world changes when Tamara Tremayne garbed in erotic new age garments enters his computer shop whispering: "I want you."
Tamara has been attracted to Zane, but he has never noticed she existed. Deciding that she must act on her feelings she finds a journal full of erotic advice that she applies to Zane. He is aroused and she encourages him further. Tamara feels she has earned a last fling before leaving town when her New Age business finally fails due to vandalism. Zane feels protective, but desperately wants to become the latest married Winston if he can convince Tamara to have him permanently.
WILD lives up to its title name, as the story line is a fast-paced madcap trip. The opening line of “I want you” will be considered a classic and sets the tone for the lead characters, whom readers will like when they avoid abusing the use of sexual innuendoes. When they go sexual, Zane and Tamara lose some of their appeal. Still, Lori Foster closes the Winston Brothers saga with a pleasant erotic romance.
